Guy Perelmuter — Reshaping The World Through Technology
New technologies are coming up everyday and it’s difficult to keep up. However, this actually has been true in our society for thousands of years. Our guest shares a couple of interesting history lessons about how our technology has developed over the years and why it makes sense that we’ve finally arrived -here-.
Guy Perelmuter is the Founder of GRIDS Capital, a deep tech venture capital firm focusing on artificial intelligence, robotics, life sciences, and technological infrastructure. His new book, Present Future, was recognized as the Best Science Book of 2020. Guy is a first-generation Brazilian, having had both of his parents migrate to Brazil to escape World War 2.
Things are changing really fast and we’re entering a new era of deep technology. Our society can now leverage 3D printing, robotics, machine learning, and self-driving vehicles are within our reality. In Guy’s book, Present Future, he provides context as to how our technology is both helping us, but also damaging the planet if we’re not careful.
If you think things have evolved quickly over the past 4-5 decades, wait till we’re 3-4 decades into the future. It will be a brand new world that you will not recognize. Things will be getting even wilder and faster.
