MIND THE FUTURE #1 - Futurist Nikolas Badminton on Optimizing Humans

Mind the Future

Should humans strive to optimize themselves via biohacking? What can 'smart drugs' do for us? What are the ethics of gene modification? Is there such a thing as going too far in improving ourselves? With gene editing in the mix, what does it mean to be human? Our guest today is NIKOLAS BADMINTON, a futurist, a world-renowned keynote speaker, consultant, and media producer who shows you the future trends that shape impactful organizations, trillion-dollar companies, progressive governments, and 200+ billion dollar investment funds. Nikolas will shift your mindset from WHAT IS to ‘WHAT IF..?’ and (hopefully) into brighter futures. He also advised Robert Downey Jr.’s team for the ‘Age of A.I.’ documentary series, and was featured in ‘SMART DRUGS – a Futurist’s journey into biohacking’, a topic we’ll be tackling today. His  research and opinion was also featured on BBC, VICE, The Atlantic, Fast Company, Techcrunch, Business Insider, Forbes, and other media outlets.  He’s also the founder of “Dark Futures” - a popular series of TED-style talks in Vancouver, Toronto, and San Francisco that focuses on the darker side of the future and hidden systems that affect our lives.  Learn more: https://nikolasbadminton.com & follow on Twitter @NikolasFuturist VIDEO VERSION: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dH3c3NJOy1E About the Podcast: MIND THE FUTURE is a podcast series that asks guests from the world of art, science, and technology to predict how what they do and love will look like as we fast forward into the future.

Futurist Nikolas Badminton: we're too late to stop climate change (and smart drugs and the future of food)

future39 with John Koetsier

Journalist John Koetsier spends 30 minutes with futurist Nik Badminton on smart drugs, smart food, and the coming "year of resiliency," in which we start to learn to live with higher temperatures ... and all their consequences. On nootropics: “Has it fundamentally changed my life? I don’t think so ..." On the future of food "If you really want to understand the future of food … speak to farmers … they’re hugely technological." On climate change "We’re never going to be able to reverse it; we’re never going to get cooler as a planet ... the inconvenient truth is that the earth is becoming an inhospitable place to live." Show notes and a full transcript are available at my website: https://johnkoetsier.com/future39-futurist-nikolas-badminton-on-nootropics-the-future-of-food-and-climate-change/ Get more Nikolas Badminton at his website here.
