On the heels of TED2023 (Technology, Entertainment and Design) talk has arrived. The talk is described as the following:
Peter Weyland has been a magnet for controversy since he announced his intent to build the first convincingly humanoid robotic system by the end of the decade.
Whether challenging the ethical boundaries of medicine with nanotechnology or going toe to toe with the Vatican itself on the issue of gene-therapy sterilization, Sir Peter prides himself on his motto, â€œIf we can, we must.â€ After a three year media blackout, Weyland has finally emerged to reveal where heâ€™s heading next. Wherever that may be, we will most certainly want to follow.
We also get the following description of the Peter Weyland character:
Sir Peter Weyland was born in Mumbai, India at the turn of the Millennium. The progeny of two brilliant parents; His mother, an Oxford Educated Professor of Comparative Mythology, his father, a self-taught software Engineer, it was clear from an early age that Sir Peterâ€™s capabilities would only be eclipsed by his ambition to realize them. By the age of fourteen, he had already registered a dozen patents in a wide range of fields from biotech to robotics, but it would be his dynamic break-throughs in generating synthetic atmosphere above the polar ice cap that gained him worldwide recognition and spawned an empire.
In less than a decade, Weyland Corporation became a worldwide leader in emerging technologies and launched the first privatized industrial mission to leave the planet Earth. â€œThere are other worlds than this one,â€ Sir Peter boldly declared, â€œAnd if there is no air to breathe, we will simply have to make it.â€
So with that said I don’t think you need to hear anymore from me. Check out the three-minute video below and leave your thoughts in the comments.
