We don’t have good global policies in place for climate  (Ramez Naam Quotes) We don’t have good global policies in place for climate  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Often an idea has impact far larger than the person who originated it  (Ramez Naam Quotes) We must learn to set our emotions aside and embrace what science tells us. GMOs and nuclear power are two of the most effective and most important green technologies we have. If - after looking at the data - you aren’t in favour of using them responsibly, you aren’t an environmentalist.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) The final frontier of the digital technology is integrating into your own brain  (Ramez Naam Quotes) I’m an optimist. My own fiction, while it has its own dark warnings about pitfalls ahead, depicts the potential of science to improve society by networking human minds.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) AI does not keep me up at night. Almost no one is working on conscious machines. Deep learning algorithms, or Google search, or Facebook personalization, or Siri or self driving cars or Watson, those have the same relationship to conscious machines as a toaster does to a chess-playing computer.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) I’m a computer scientist by training. I’m also the author of three books, all of which endorse the use of biotechnology to improve the human condition. In the most recent of these, ‘The Infinite Resource,’ I talk about the power of innovation to save the world.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) There’s a preponderance of scientists and engineers among China’s rulers. New President Xi Jinping was trained as a chemical engineer. His predecessor, Hu Jintao, earned a degree in hydraulic engineering. His predecessor, Jiang Zemin, held a degree in electrical engineering.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Environmental concern is a phenomena that tends to rise in a nation after a certain level of wealth.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Ozone and climate are global issues, and it’s hard to find a way in which the benefits of shutting down carbon emissions are going to pay for themselves for any given power-plant, say.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) We have to slow down the emissions of carbon dioxide and methane from coal burning, oil and eventually natural gas... And the best ways to do that are energy efficiency and a switch to renewables.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Brave New World’ dealt with a kind of proto-genetic engineering of the unborn, through really, as many dystopias do, it dealt with totalitarianism. The 1997 film ‘Gattaca’ updated ‘Brave New World,’ bringing us to a future where genetic testing determined your job, your wealth, your status in life.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) I absolutely hated ‘Gattaca.’ I left the theater shaking my head because the science in the film was just terrible. No genetic test will ever tell you how many heartbeats you have left. No genetic test will ever be more accurate in telling an employer how well you’ll do at a job than your performance at a past job would be.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) I’ve read science fiction my whole life. I never really dreamed that I’d be a published science fiction writer myself, but a short story I started years ago sort of demanded to be turned into a novel.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) In a VR setting, you tilt your head up, and you really have the vertigo and the sense that it goes up to infinity, and it’s like you’re in New York City or Dubai, and you’re looking up at a giant skyscraper. You have a sense of awe.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) I have an ‘office,’ technically. I never use it. I work on a couch in my living room, with my laptop on my lap, looking out the windows. I love space and green things. And I’m an incredibly casual person. I slouch. I close the laptop and just lie on the couch for a while if I need to think. I put my feet up on a table while I type.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Ideas come mostly bottoms-up. They come when you have a free flow of ideas and you have people able to combine multiple ideas into one concept... And you’ve got to have competition, too. You’ve got to say, ‘We’re going to have 10 different ideas, nine of them are going to fail, and the one that does the best is going to move forward.’  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Food production has affected the environment more than any other activity humans have engaged in. Humanity devotes more land to food production than anything else - roughly a third of the surface area of the earth, much of which was once forest but has been converted by humans into farms or grazing lands.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Orange juice from concentrate is labeled. Food coloring Red #5 is labeled. Fish are labeled as to whether they’ve been previously frozen. To a consumer, there’s no plausible reason why these factors should be on a food ingredient label while the presence of GMOs shouldn’t be.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Neural implants could accomplish things no external interface could: Virtual and augmented reality with all five senses; augmentation of human memory, attention, and learning speed; even multi-sense telepathy - sharing what we see, hear, touch, and even perhaps what we think and feel with others.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) I’ve tried Oculus Rift; I’ve played with the Steam VR rig. Both are mind-blowing. In a traditional video game setting, in a first-person shooter, you can see a tower in the distance. You can walk up to that tower and use your controller to look up.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) I think the environmental movement is now so large and diverse that it’s hard to talk of it as a single entity.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Unfortunately, in the environment, I don’t see as much willingness to invest heavily in R  (Ramez Naam Quotes) New technology lets you grow the resource pie, which is the only way you can get out between that pincer of rising consumption (as we end poverty) and environmental and natural resource depletion.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) We’ve seen over time that countries that have the best economic growth are those that have good governance, and good governance comes from freedom of communication. It comes from ending corruption. It comes from a populace that can go online and say, ‘This politician is corrupt, this administrator, or this public official is corrupt.’  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Technology is incredibly powerful. And in many ways, the sky is the limit in terms of what you can actually accomplish with the right science and the right technology. But to get there, you have to actually invest in R  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Genetically modified organism (GMO) foods are feared and hated by environmentalists and the public alike. Yet the scientific assessment of GMOs is remarkably different. Every major scientific evaluation of GMO technology has concluded that GMOs are safe for human consumption and are a benefit to the environment.  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Everything good and bad about technology would be magnified by implanting it deep in brains. Is the risk of brain-hacking outweighed by the societal benefits of faster, deeper communication, and the ability to augment our own intelligence?  (Ramez Naam Quotes) Just like you could dump oil into the Cuyahoga in the 60s and let someone else foot the bill, today you can pump CO2 into the atmosphere and let the whole world foot the bill  (Ramez Naam Quotes)
