What needs to happen for them to become viable? Things like 4k/8k, new display tech, etc.

1. nuclear powered trains
2. nuclear powered airplanes
3. nuclear powered cars
4. nuclear powered generator trailers

t. nuclear engineer

Affordable, cheap electric cars.

1. programmable loli-bots
2. brain uploading
3. lewd loli-bots

Womb transplant would be nice

i really dont know how far off we are from quantum computing but when that starts to take off i assume we will see a lot of cool shit happen

>>47072019
I'm guessing some of these are pretty far off.

If the cold war was still going on, it would be seen as the new space race.

Nuclear powered airplanes have been done before.

meh, 20-50 years depending on how optimistic you want to be

>>47072141
>>47072159

While they have been done before I'm looking more for examples of tech that is within 5-10 years of being widespread.

It is. Don't fool yourself. The context and players are just slightly different as time has gone on.

There's a reason neither the US nor Russia have disarmed any of their nukes and still stand at the ready. There's a reason anti-ICBM tech is still an active field of r&d. It's because unfortunately, mutually assured destruction works.

We're kids on the playground. Little is more laughable than the suggestion that we're a wise or mature race. Nothing we argue about is very complex. We are an infant that has yet to finish shitting up its cradle and flailing around helplessly.

Sure, but I meant the original first vs second world conflict. We all have McDonald's now, China is the biggest capitalist force etc.
It would be cool to see commies vs capitalists compete publicly for building the first "artilect".

Cool pic, btw.

Have fun with brain damage.

Unfortunately, living in a space colony without being near Earth's shielding and not being bombarded by cosmic rays, high energy nuclei moving near light speed, etc, is outside of your natural lifespan.

If immortality is brought about, perhaps. But they won't and cannot give it to everyone.
>>
>>47072660
I don't understand, why immortality can't be just given in a computer program form. Such as being stuck living in a reality program like Sword Art Online. That would be a life that I could live with forever. Fucking hot Japanese women while slaying demons for the rest of eternity.

As tin foil as this sounds... it is scary

>>47072731
I don't believe it would be you. Even if you could simulate everything on a particle level and had complete knowledge of the universe's workings, the program simply still isn't you. It's a duplicate of the original. "You" still die, despite another your going on living. ie, you wouldn't experience it.

That's using a strictly reductionist viewpoint of reality and consciousness. I don't know what consciousness, experience, or perception actually is. Could be a lot of things, but I do lean towards that once your system of particles fizzles out, that's it. A copy is just a copy in the truest sense, a duplicated new original that is only a copy from a perspective that allows it to be seen as such.

This topic always gets me thinking about Unreal Tournament.

>mfw the thought occurred that if the universe is deterministic, and AI system is designed to be deterministic as well, only the existence of the player within the game's "universe" affords the capacity for change or anything novel to occur.
>Mfw perhaps our universe is the same, we're all deterministically driven data and any change in that stream of events is via compounding changes imparted by beings existing apart from our universe, who may or may not defy the logic our faculties can address as afforded by physics.

Nah, it was actually pretty subdued. More of an "oh, hmm." moment.

we could have self-driving cars all synchronized between each other, just set the destination and the navigation system does everything, accidents can't happen because the system already knows the position of every car.

We have the technology, why the fuck isn't it happening?
>>
>>47072904
>accidents can't happen because the system already knows the position of every car.

Software is far from perfect or inherently reliable. I'll never understand why people are willing to place so much faith in any automated system. The world in practice rarely plays out as it "could" or even "should" in theory.
