The Singularity, Skynet, and the Future of Computing: Crash Course Computer Science #40

The Singularity, Skynet, and the Future of Computing: Crash Course Computer Science #40

In our SERIES FINALE of Crash Course Computer Science we take a look towards the future! In the past 70 years electronic computing has fundamentally changed how we live our lives, and we believe it’s just getting started. From ubiquitous computing, artificial intelligence, and self-driving cars to brain computer interfaces, wearable computers, and maybe even the singularity there is so much amazing potential on the horizon. Of course there is also room for peril with the rise of artificial intelligence and more immediate displacement of much of the workforce through automation. It’s tough to predict how it will all shake out, but it’s our hope that this series has inspired you to take part in shaping that future. Thank you so much for watching.

    This is one of the best crash courses on computer science.I Loved it. Big thanks to Carrie Anne and the whole team who worked hard to make this possible. Thank you so much guys. <3

    She said "thanks for watching", i was hoping she’d say "see you next week" ;(

    New level of abstraction

    Computers won’t replace employment because electricity price will skyrocket and businesses will get more bang for their buck with employees. Also batteries haven’t progressed as fast as computers.

    Let’s be realistic – the socialist utopia were everyone is warm and fed with robots and AI doing the dirty work will NOT happen. You are dreaming if you think that people who will benefit from UI proliferation will share their spoils with everyone. The alternative is a massively divided society or haves and have nots.

    This was the first Crash Course I saw. Sad to see such an amazing course end. Thank you for everything! 😀

    WHAT A WONDERFUL JOURNEY
    THANKS Carrie ANNE



  8. Rajat Verma on November 25, 2019 at 6:55 pm

    this was such a great series. i teared up watching this (last) episode. great work, guys!



  9. Nicolas Gasco on November 25, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    This as been great, thank you <3

    The problem isn’t that technological change is causing unemployment. It’s that capitalism as a system cannot cope with massive increases in efficiency and productivity without causing major problems that need to be patched in precarious ways. The only way to maximize automation is to replace capitalism with a system where power does not funnel to the top, workers have democratic control over the economy, and the technological advancements we make allow us all collectively to work less and have more free time.



  11. Jeremy Bailey on November 25, 2019 at 6:58 pm

    Watched every episode and really enjoyed it. I already know how to program (self taught) but I’m going to college next semester for computer science so this was a nice introduction. Thank you



  12. Andrew Flores on November 25, 2019 at 6:59 pm

    Amazing series great work PBS/Crash Course!



  13. CrashCourse on November 25, 2019 at 7:03 pm

    Thank you so so much everyone for watching this series! If you’d like to keep up with Carrie Anne be sure to subscribe to her youtube channel "Geek Gurl Dairies" and follow her on twitter @MissPhilbin. She’s doing so much awesome work teaching the world about computer science. If you’d like more great computer science content you should really check out youtube channel "Computerphile". And if you want to try some coding yourself you’ve gotta try some of the amazing programming courses at Khanacademy.org! I hope to see many of you on our first MATH course, Crash Course Statistics, in January! -brandon

    Finally! I finished!



  15. vellanki saichandra on November 25, 2019 at 7:04 pm

    hi guys im a beginner in computers ,and im very much interested in new tech comp sci and i want to be a programmer , pls suggest me courses to acquire my goal



  16. steef4000000 on November 25, 2019 at 7:05 pm

    bunch of workaholics, your job being automated isn’t the problem the distribution of wealth is and always will be the problem.
    and the way society views work is also part of the problem, since providing ambitious man are seen as successful by woman and they themselves see it as a primary source of meaning of their being, which of course is kind of sad if you don’t need to work.

    so, in the end, our smartest people (economics mental health professional’s, etc.) should start to talk about what to do if automation gets to that point where humans working is just plain inefficient



  17. Waqas Narang on November 25, 2019 at 7:07 pm

    Thank you so much for teaching us. Carrie Anne , you look beautiful in finale. This video is Gold. Cheers.



  18. Ivory Hours on November 25, 2019 at 7:08 pm

    Amazing series, thank you so much for this!



  19. Arran Jordan on November 25, 2019 at 7:10 pm

    Brilliant series



  20. vellanki saichandra on November 25, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    i ve watched all the episodes , those were very interesting ,, thanks for being my tutor love you



  21. tazz250 on November 25, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    Now I’m very sad… This was quite a journey. I have 2 degrees in computer science and I learned more in this series than I learned in all my years of college classes. The best parts for me (as far as learning) were the early episodes showing the visuals of how circuits work, AND, OR, and NOT gates, how it saves a bit, how it reads a bit… this is stuff that is so low level, it’s not very well understood by most people. For me, those episodes changed it from magic to science.



  22. Jure Ereš on November 25, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    I watched it all, amazing series, just would wanna ask will you consider going in depth with all of it. I learned alot and would like to see more if possible, thank you very much Mary Anne, and hope to see more of your videos, til then thank you for RAM😉



  23. Null F on November 25, 2019 at 7:15 pm

    Thank your, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!



  24. Brian Rivera on November 25, 2019 at 7:15 pm

    And Intel will still be trying to sell another generation of 14nm chips.



  25. bill Niko on November 25, 2019 at 7:15 pm

    And fight with ai army in the future



  26. Vincent Espinosa on November 25, 2019 at 7:16 pm

    Thank you Carrie Anne and CrashCourse. I love this great series i learn a lot of computing fundamentals and I appreciate how abstraction work because of it.

    Wonderful series of videos I believe I have become smarter and more aware of computing since I watched these Cheers



  29. Null F on November 25, 2019 at 7:21 pm

    That last level of abstraction tho



  30. Joq Cas on November 25, 2019 at 7:23 pm

    This is 3rd time I watch this course.



  31. Ijaz Hussain on November 25, 2019 at 7:24 pm

    I was here to watch only one lecture but could not stop myself from watching the whole course. Thanks to Anne and Crashcourse.



  32. Piotrek Jaskulski on November 25, 2019 at 7:25 pm

    Thank you, just thank you.



  33. arfat inamdar on November 25, 2019 at 7:25 pm

    Explained beautifully by a beautiful teacher, thank you madam



  34. Juan Pablo Vazquez Rodriguez on November 25, 2019 at 7:27 pm

    Man, I really feel like I need to catch up with technology now.



  35. Isaac Ndidi on November 25, 2019 at 7:28 pm

    I watched all the episodes and all were nothing but lovely



  36. P16 R18 on November 25, 2019 at 7:29 pm

    There were small things unknown to me in this crash course. But your explanation process made me crush on you. 😁



  37. Dad Number 1 on November 25, 2019 at 7:29 pm

    Thank you and your team for the great content. You cari Ann are adding to society with your education. For that I say thank you.

  40. Gregory Mambakkadan on November 25, 2019 at 7:35 pm

    The whole series was amazing and the best series I’ve watched. Thanks



  41. Elise Erickson on November 25, 2019 at 7:36 pm

    9:20 I was actually so sad knowing this was probably the last time we will get to move up a level of abstraction 🙁



  42. Ciel Phantomhive on November 25, 2019 at 7:36 pm

    First series on crashcourse (and also on YouTube) that I watched in its entirety… thank you so much Carrie Anne and crashcourse! Love from a new cs student who just switched from a bio major xD
