QUOTES
“We Are Now Hackable Animals”

“When infotech merges with biotech what you get is the ability to create algorithms that understand me better than I understand myself.” [5:20]

“Maybe the most important thing in life is to get to know yourself better. But for all of history this was a process of self-exploration which you did from things like meditation, sports, or art, and complementation. But what does it mean when the process of self-exploration is being outsourced to a big data algorithm? The philosophical implications are mind-boggling.” [12:34]

“The story of your life is made of bits and pieces and it only makes sense” [23:50]
