The US Air Force Blue Horizon Program Considers The Future Age Of Surprise



USAF Blue Horizons exponential technological progress

 Exponential Technology
The Air Force Center for Strategy and Technology produced a dynamic video showing the incredible exponential technology as part of an annual study it conducts about strategy and "airpower" in the future. 
The exponential advancement of technology has reached a critical point where not even governments can project the direction humanity is headed. Some researchers forecast an eventual singularity where the lines between humans and machines are blurred.

Discussions of warfighting domains in the past have included land, sea, air, and space. Recently cyber was added as a current domain of concern. But as cyber capabilities continue to evolve and combine with enablers of rapidly improving artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and biotechnology, new threats may emerge. These threats may manifest at the state, non-state group, or even super-empowered individual levels in  what the US Air Force Center for Strategy and Technology calls The Age of Surprise.

The Air Force Center for Strategy and Technology produced this video as part of an annual study it conducts about strategy and "airpower" in the future. The information is inspired by findings published by the Blue Horizons graduate student program at The Air University.

The Story of the Chessboard


The classic parable of how the inventor of the game of chess used his knowledge of exponential growth to trick an emperor is commonly used to explain the staggering and accelerating growth of technology. The 33rd square on the chessboards represents the first step into the second half of the chessboard, where exponential growth takes off.

33rd Square explores technological progress in AI, robotics, genomics, neuroscience, nanotechnology, art, design and the future as humanity encroaches on The Singularity.
