“Byron presents his vision of the future: humanity advancing subconsciously via our
seamless integration with technology. Every heartbeat becomes a data point bringing
us one step closer to unlocking the mysteries of humankind. Every person’s life
contributes to the greater good, simply through the act of living. I found his talk
to be highly enthusiastic, visually engaging, and hopeful.”

Byron’s new book, “Infinite Progress: How  the Internet and Technology Will End
Ignorance, Disease, Poverty, Hunger, and War”, is an effective tool to support
Byron’s messages.
 
For years we've been inundated with bleak forecasts about the future. But in this
electrifying new book, author Byron Reese debunks the pessimistic outlook as
dangerous, and shows instead how technology will soon create a dramatically better
world for every person on earth, beyond anything we have dared to imagine.
 
With the art of a storyteller, Reese synthesizes history, technology, and sociology
into an exciting, fast-moving narrative that shows how technological change has had
dramatic effects on humanity in the past. He then looks forward at the technological
changes we know are coming--from genetics, nanotechnology, robotics, and many other
fields--and explores how they will vastly increase wealth, prolong our lifespans,
redefine human rights, and alter the social fabric of the world.
 
Reese explains how the Internet, human ingenuity, and technological innovation will
help us forever end the five historic plagues of human existence: ignorance,
disease, poverty, hunger, and war. With a rational and researched optimism, Reese
sees the future not as a world in a downward spiral, but as destined for progress
beyond our imaginations.
