TED2013 Tweet Quotes ……

Erik Brynjokffson: our reality is changing exponentially w/advances in AI, Internet, robotics, computer process power…
“15 years ago the best supercomputer beat Gary Kasparov. Today a cellphone can beat a Grand Master!” -Erik Brynjolfsson at #TED2013
.@TEDChris quotes Mitch Kapor: Many homes in China lack indoor plumbing but everyone has cell phone. Which would you choose? #TED2013
#TEDMED 2013 speaker Eli Beer witnessed his first terrorist attack at age 7 – and it impacted his career:
Robert Gordon #TED2013: What good is a world with snazzy machines and great music for free, but we don’t have gainful employment?
Big debate on #TED2013 stage: is progress accelerating or decelerating? Bob Gordon (its slowing) vs Erik Brynjokffson (speeding up!) Fun.
Robert Gordon at #TED2013: Early retirement = pension problems (like Greek fiscal blowup). We must raise retirement age with life expectancy
The answer is not to try to slow down technology. Humans need to race with the machine. @erikbryn #TED2013
People are racing against the machine, and losing. How can a skilled tax preparer compete with a $39 copy of Turbotax? @erikbryn #TED2013
The New Machine Age…Is Digital, Exponential & Combinatorial. Here is @ibmwatson learning curve @erikbryn #TED2013
IBM’s Watson is growing up fast. It’s applying for legal and banking jobs. And it’s getting them. @erikbryn #TED2013
A child’s Playstation today is more powerful than a military supercomputer from 1996. @erikbryn #TED2013
We’re getting more + more stuff for free: Wikipedia, Google, Skype. But that’s not how economists measure GDP. @erikbryn at #TED2013
1900-1960 we went from buggies to jets. To grow in the 21st century requires our inventions be just as important. Robert J. Gordon #TED2013
The cost inflation of higher ed dwarfs that of healthcare. We’re racking up trillions of $$s in student debt. Robert J Gordon at #TED2013
Americans can no longer afford to expect to be twice as well off as their parents. Robert J Gordon at #TED2013
We face 4 headwinds against further progress: education, demographics, debt and inequality, says Robert J. Gordon at #TED2013
Economist Robert J Gordon asks: Could it be that the best years of American economic growth are almost over? #TED2013
In Greenville, MI, 3,000 of 8,000 people worked at Electrolux factory. When it closed, “it was like a bomb went off.” @JenGranholm #TED2013
Questions @TEDChris is asking at #TED2013: What is the future of work? How can we educate our kids for an unknown future? Who’ll pay for it?
“Racing WITH the machine is better than racing against the machine.” – Erik Brynjolffson at #TED2013
What’s the fuel that drives #innovation? #TEDMED curator Jay Walker via @WSJ on The Power of #Imagination
Bruno Maisonnier: Dance, tiny robots! >>
