Project Description

The tsunami of 2004. We all know the YouTube movies and recognize the dangerous wave, growing into an all destroying flood.

Yuri van Geest uses this picture for two reasons.
(1) First: the tsunami is a metaphor for our world today. Developments grow exponential. For example: the new quantum computer is 100 million times faster than the conventional computer. Or another example: in 20 years robots have taken over 80% of our current jobs.
(2) Second: the tsunami is about human nature. We try to understand new phenomonals with our own thinking.

Since 2008 Yuri van Geest is actively involved in the global movement of the Singularity. The Singularity University focuses on accelerating Technologies. More information on www.singularityu.org.
