Our landmark 10-part series concludes with an exploration of two key driving forces behind the amazing era of transformation in which we find ourselves: acceleration and convergence. Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon welcome futurist John Smart to discuss how these forces are shaping the future of humanity, and what our ultimate destiny might be.

About our guest:

John Smart is a futures scholar and systems theorist who studies science and technological culture with an emphasis on accelerating change, evolutionary development, computational autonomy (human-independent machine learning) and the technological singularity. He is the founder and president of the Acceleration Studies Foundation.
