This weekend I interviewed Jose Cordeiro for Singularity 1 on 1 and I have to admit that this was one of my favorite interviews so far with perhaps the strongest, most positive endings on the show.
Jose is a published book author, energy expert, futurist, transhumanist and Singularity University faculty member. So, even if Venezuela's terribly slow internet connection did not make for the best video recording, the interview is absolutely worth watching. Furthermore, if you ever attend a public event or a lecture where you suddenly hear someone scream "Energyyyy!" on the top of their lungs -- you will have not doubt that it can be no one else but our friend Cordeiro.
During our 48 min conversation we discuss a large variety of topics such as: Jose's personal background and his failed attempt to become Venezuela's energy minister; the staggering murder rates in Venezuela; his journey from MIT's engineering department through the Oil and Gas Industry to renewable resources, Singularity Unviversity and futurism; the Energularity -- its meaning and timeline; the Kardashev scale and the vulnerability of pre-type 1 civilizations such as ours; the biggest change in the largest industry on our planet -- i.e. the Energy industry's shift from fossil fuels to solar, wind, geothermal or fusion; the evolution of intelligence, our chances of surviving the technological singularity and the importance of optimism.
My favorite quote from Jose: "The world is just half full but it is beginning to become fuller and fuller and more beautiful."
