When it comes to technology, we are living in amazing times. We have practically instant communication with people all over the globe, anyone can record anything with a device in their pocket and play it back later, we have a wealth of high tech entertainment options, transportation is a breeze compared to the days of horses, and companies are now looking toward increasingly complex nanotechnology.

10 Top Tips for Practical Immortality
10 Things to Know That Might One Day Save Your Life
Text version: https://www.toptenz.net/10-reasons-we-may-be-entering-a-dark-age-of-technology.php
10. We Are Running Out Of A Lot Of Important Metals For Making Smartphones
9. Technology Is Becoming Increasingly Complex And Increasingly Layered
8. The Amount Of People Who Can Make An Entire Piece Of Technology Is Dwindling
7. Some Arts Are Already Mostly Lost To Time And Could Be Lost Entirely
6. Data Is Stored In Ways That May One Day Be Entirely Irretrievable
5. If The Environment Continues To Worsen, A Lot Of Infrastructure Will Be Destroyed
4. We May Have To Rediscover More “Primitive” Technologies From The Recent Past
3. Global Trade Could Be Very Easily And Very Quickly Disrupted By Environmental Disaster
2. Satellite Damage Could Further Weaken Our Ability To Communicate And Learn
1. People Could Be More Concerned With Resources In The Near Future Than Technology
at 12:20 you imply that internet traffic is all done via satellite when in fact the vast majority of internet traffic is via submarine cabling. Where wireless links are utilized they are typically terrestrial links.
Ridiculous. Watchmaking for example, could be learned from the internet, maybe even YouTube videos. Skill training has been automated- Sponsors of this channel promise to do so presently. I'm surprised they haven't made a bigger fuss about the subject of this video and how dismissive it is of their business.
This is a very stupid and not well researched video. This video should be taken about as seriously as your conspiracy theory videos. The only actual world changing issue brought up in this video is climate change.
AAAAAH. With technology gone then we'd have to do it the old fashioned way by having more people working. We got through with less technology and we can do it again. I know sexting would be gone, but Kodak would come back.
And separate from all the mentioned problems is the problem of rising complexity itself. More and more complexity is added every year, not just in technology, but in all areas of human endeavor. There must eventually be a "complexity collapse" when systems and individuals can no longer deal with that future level of complexity.
It's funny. I saw this video and the first thing I thought would be that we are at a pivotal moment when Moore's law will be hitting a wall soon. We need a paradigm shift with transistors and some other way to compute.
Almost all of this is a problem with education. We've had the same damn education since before I was alive and I'm turning 26 this year. It was outdated when I was in school, and it's still outdated. I'm a computer scientist, no part of that is taught in elementary school or highschool where I live, you're not even taught how to use a computer properly.
However don't brood and think no one knows most of the step-by-step processes for most technology. I began studying when I was 9, and I still study today. My goal is to know everything I possibly can for the field, and I've met one other person who does this. It isn't super marketable, as I desire extremely complex tasks, and require to be constantly learning. In terms of technology, I'd like to think other people do know these things, and you could assemble a very small team of people who could recreate most things.
Now-a-days because of for-profit education we don't have our best and brightest in most positions today. Very far from it actually. If something happened that rendered these vast swaths of people irrelevant (any shakeup at all in most cases), we'd have drastically different economies, and a very different world. However, we wouldn't lose what we're used to overall, it just may be less accessible.
While that libary was a grate loss, I'm sure it wasn't the only place back than to hold and distribute books.
While not being able to recycle ewaste sucks we'll be able to mine astroids within the next 30-50 years.
Fact is our quality of life has not been improved one iota with all this electronic technology - quite the opposite: we have become detached from one another and our natural world, steeped in banal trivialities offered up on the net, people no longer use their brains much, deferring to "instant"bits of information that has been pre-digested for them, more vulnerable and so on. Computer technology is much over-rated, and recent so-called improvements are nothing of the sort, rather, things re crammed with "features", most of which are useless and unnecessary, making the devices more complicated and less intuitive to use.
I havent upgraded my phone, the new phones suck!
The reason you dont see single inventors is they get killed off, eg Jan Sloot
There is a problem with radio - all the frequencies have been sold off to cellphone carriers.
OMG I have been saying this for years... and what's more, he's right, we are ALL citizens of Planet Earth..... talk about history repeating itself !! We should be looking to heal our world instead of passing our mistakes onto our children. GREED
Progress and technology usually evolves with war. computers, internet and all kind of luxuries we use today were originally invented for ww2 I believe that before we have a new war technology will not evolve significantly
everything he says about hurricane seasons and how horrible they truly are just look back at the record of the last hundred years hurricane seasons have not been bad in the last 10 years at the very least and this is just one more b******* lie about global warming
Great video but simply untrue.
Energy: we are developing more and more solar etc energy, and in next century we will harness kinetic earth, fusion, etc.
Metals: we will use other materials. Any chemist knows those properties are available in other compounds or elements.
A metal is used in electronics not because there is no substitute but because of industrial convenience.
Specialization: work coordination is organic while the whole population is more and more educated not less. Reference sources become more efficient and industrial secrets are disclosed as patents expire.
So, no, no dark age.
As long as we don't do stupid things like societal regression or nuclear warfare, the future is very bright.
First-world, narrow-minded nonsense.
I lived in Colombia, South America for 4 years. My car's frame was damage to a level in which in the US, it would have been totaled. I sat and watched three men bend metal with some of the most basic items and elements, over a 2hr period. No parts replaced, yet my car drove better and straighter than when it was new.
On another occasion, I saw a man add a room to his house with no more than bamboo, palm leaves, and twine made from bamboo fiber.
This is what third-world migrants can bring to the first world: Basic human skill and art.
He failed to mention the primary reason we are already dealing with in the processor realm for most computers; Moore’s Law. We have got a point where processors don’t really appear to be rocketing up in speed as they were just ten years ago. This is because we have started to reach a point where the current type of processor architecture is physically unable to work faster and we require more processors of this type in gain more speed. This is why multi core processors have become a thing. In order to build a faster single processor we will need to explore other mathematical systems of logic such Trinary (ternary) processors to gain a higher processing density and be able to compute more complex problems.
Apparently ! When we keep mining and drilling for oil, eventually we'll run out. Thats one of the biggest problems we keep using up resources, but never put back or find a way to use other materials in place of resources running out before we run out.
Bringing up the fact that the information on how to build a computer requires a computer to access it reminds me of the days where some Video Cassette Recorders (VCRs) came with a video cassette explaining how to hook up the VCR.
Fusion energy; fusile nucleosynthesis; and decay-proof, contingent, universal, documentation of everything. It's really an enormous project, but it can be done. I just hope Mr. Burns and Elon Musk can agree on this one youtube _(The Simpsons episode (season 26, episode 12))_-- it's going to need a crap-ton of funding and brain-power (both characters possess both attributes).
At the 8 minute mark, you waffled on climate change. Climate change is human caused and not a mix of different "things". There is no credible science that can discredit this fact. The earth's tilt and elliptical orbit do not count. The Earth is warming because of the greenhouse effect. Just say it.
Sooo one of the ads that came up was a full Rondo9 (whoever that is) music video. I’m not personally offended, but I’m sure some of your viewers wouldn’t appreciate the frequent N words and other swear words being dropped... YouTube shouldn’t allow profanity on Ads...
This is very misinforming. I expacted more from this channel. there are still millions upon millions of people who wear a wristwatch ever day. With an incredebal market for watches. Also thinking we would ever go back to telegraphs and radio only is just plane dumb.
Why doesn't the haptic gyroscope movement throughout the day get transferred into charge? (like a wrist watch does with movement) or surely a solar power phone screen must exist by now? Surely. I realise these functions wouldn't give you perpetually charged phone, but the added 10-20% from Kinetic and Solar Screen would be a viable option for me to think about a purchase
You touched on a subject that I'm hoping you have time to delve into further. Our modern high-tech world is replacing old-fashioned skills. A new, handmade Swiss watch can cost more than a mid-size sedan. That's because they are made by hand, to order, by skilled craftsmen... and their skills are dying out. So... what if we had an EMP blast, that basically sent our technology back to 1880? Or is that even possible? So: Top Ten Changes to the World caused by an EMP blast. Think of a better title, though.
People have been saying this since Malthus. We don't know at this time when the next truly revolutionary may come around the bend but we do know there are a constant list of new things everyday. People who we don't know or even where they are working can come up with an entirely new idea that can change all of modern society.
This is really bias and his political leaning bleeds through excessively. I normally like these vids or at least consider the points he makes. This one well I can tell you right now that not only is our tech fine if anything were to happen their are absurdly well protected vaults around the world that document how to make practically everything. These are maintained by International agreements between countries and can easy sustain themselves for hundreds of years. Second we are actually getting pretty close to a tech 'cap' so to say as nano tech is getting to the point where physics will not allow as to go smaller. I had a discussion with and engineering major and myself a cyber sec major and he explained why it's so damn hard to get these thing to the size they are. This actually can be seen in the newest forms of tech like the new gtx graphics cards are only slightly better than the existing 1080 ti etc.
It's comfortable to ignore the world's problems, and the video is exaggerating since countermeasures are being explored, BUT there are things that simple have no viable solution.
Removing Space junk is nearly impossible or time-consuming and super expensive at best. Then there's the obvious environmental changes that we cannot stop. Humanity isn't really getting dumber, but there is a huge gap between the average person and specialists needed to make our society function..
You don't even need a disaster to cripple the world. Just murder a bunch of specialists that are irreplaceable in their field and technological advances will slow down for years, maybe decades. We don't have enough 'adults' running the show.
