THE FUTURE OF US is a powerful original series from television personality, futurist, filmmaker and techno-philosopher, Jason Silva. In this series, Silva shares his excitement around recent discoveries and inventions: describes how they'll help us today but, more importantly, how they'll impact our near and distant future!
Jason Silva is an epiphany addict with a strong social media following. The TED Conference labeled Silva a “performance philosopher” for his poetic, impassioned and inspirational takes on scientific advancements, his riveting on-stage delivery style and his hyper-enthusiastic insights on technology and innovation. Silva also is the host of National Geographic's Emmy-nominated show Brain Games and has been featured in CBS News, The Atlantic, The Economist, Vanity Fair, Forbes, Wired and The Huffington Post for his work and views. The rapid, exponential growth rate of technological development is transforming our world, disrupting established industries and leading us towards a radical transformation in many key areas. Jason’s unique approach towards placing these transformations in context and “looking at the big picture” has made him a sought after speaker who brings an enthralling vision of what’s next.
From 2005 to 2011, Venezuela-born Silva was a presenter on Current TV, the Emmy-winning, independent cable network started by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, where he hosted, wrote and produced more than 100 hours of original content. He left the network to become, “a part-time filmmaker and full-time walking, talking TEDTalk.” Many have called Silva an “Idea DJ” and a poet, describing him as “a revitalizer and re-mixer of optimism, and above all, a curator: of ideas, of inspiration, and of awe… like a trumpet player or modern-day digital Mingus, he jams, riffs and rhapsodizes through a tumbling thicket of ideas with such a sharp and vital alacrity that it can take the breath away.”
