Peter Diamandis’s new book, Abundance, says tech will help support humanity’s billions

TEDMED 2012 speaker and X PRIZE founder Peter Diamandis has published a new book, “Abundance: The Future is Better Than You Think,”written with science writer Steven Kotler. “Abundance” documents how progress in artificial intelligence, robotics, infinite computing, ubiquitous broadband networks, digital manufacturing, nanomaterials, synthetic biology, and other exponentially growing technologies will enable us to make greater gains in the next two decades than we have in the previous two hundred years, say the authors, allowing humanity to solve some of our most vexing issues and to have the ability to meet and exceed the basic needs of every man, woman, and child on the planet.

We’ll be posting Peter’s TEDMED 2012 talk tomorrow, so stay tuned.
