A few highlights? In 25 years, computers will be microscopic, nearly infinite in supply, and basically free. Artificial intelligence, more like Iron Man’s J.A.R.V.I.S. than IBM’s Watson, will gather “incomprehensible amounts of data from the internet to make accurate split-second decisions.” Synthetic biology will program DNA to produce tailor-made foods, fuels, and vaccines.

This is, true to form, an unabashedly optimistic and exceptionally broad forecast. But better to begin by dreaming the possible than to linger overlong debating the “impossible.” In any case, Diamandis thinks the next quarter century promises to be a wild ride. Hard to disagree with that. Be sure to check it out and decide for yourself.
