It’s 2021. You have a petabyte drive on your keychain, your startup company leases bulk cloud storage by the exabyte, and you have a million cores for data crunching. You even can have your own copy of the entire world’s public semantic data. What do you do with it? If you’re not sure yet, I’ve got plenty of ideas for you.

This talk is a perfect illustration of why most of the world hates America (and I am in the minority that doesn’t). His suggestion that you set up a “treatment system in a 3rd world country” to test out new cancer drugs is so outrageous that it is sad. Basically Americans believe that people in 3rd world countries are expendable but Americans are too precious to try anything on. Are you sure you don’t want to scope up a few Afghan’s for lab trials while you are over there?
