Ten Gutenberg moments at the same time.
In science, the Gutenberg moment marks a technological milestone: more than half a millennium ago, Johannes Gutenberg’s printing press helped spread and decentralise human knowledge. Fast-forward a few centuries and we face around ten Gutenberg moments happening at the same time. Or so Yuri van Geest, Dutch ambassador and double alumnus of Silicon Valley’s Singularity University and co-founder of Quantified Self Europe and Amsterdam, postulates. He is referring to ground-breaking technologies that revolutionise our lives today – advances like neuro technology, artificial intelligence of drones and robots, DNA printing or open source hardware and mobility solutions.
