Absorbing technology takes time; Laws are essentially codified ethics

Long ago during early 1950s, the per capita economic incomes of India and Korea were almost... Absorbing technology takes time and cannot be done overnight. In other words, Korean policy makers understood the need to emphasis the entire value chain of the whole process. 
The average man on the street is not militaristic here and the flowering of spiritual power that Shri Vivekananda or Sri Aurobindo stood for requires a different space altogether. Genuine Indian spirituality is about connections, connections, connections...
Higher education is about letting the transformational power of education come to full fruition. State controls on higher education cannot work here as is being displayed by many campus incidents in India today. Political class, please think value chain, value chain, value chain...

We are headed into an amazing--and scary--future. Most worrisome is that laws can’t keep up with tech: …

Today, technology is progressing on an exponential curve; advances that would take decades now happen in years, sometimes months.
Technology is moving faster than our ability to understand it and there is no consensus on what is ethical. It isn’t just the lawmakers who are not well-informed, the originators of the technologies themselves don’t understand the full ramifications of what they are creating. They may take strong positions today based on their emotions and financial interests but as they learn more, they too will change their views.
Laws are essentially codified ethics, a consensus that is reached by society on what is right and wrong. This happens only after people understand the issues and have seen the pros and cons.
But how can our policy makers and institutions keep up with the advances when the originators of the technologies themselves can’t?
There is no answer to this question.

What happens when our smartphones are more intelligent than us? … --I don't think anyone really knows
Kurzweil tells me he is not worried. He believes we will create a benevolent intelligence and use it to enhance ourselves. He sees technology as a double-edged sword, just like fire, which has kept us warm but has also burned down our villages. He believes that technology will enable us to address the problems that have long plagued human civilization—such as disease, hunger, energy, education, and clean water—and that we can use it for good.
These advances in technology are a near certainty. The question is whether humanity will rise to the occasion and use them in a beneficial way. We can either build a Star Trek future, in which our civilization rises to new heights, or descend into a Mad Max world. It is up to us.
