Mike Gilliland and Euvie Ivanova talk about why creativity may be the most important thing in life, and how that relates to the Singularity and future AI in this episode of The Future Thinkers Podcast.

When I went to school (both in Russia and in Canada), “creative” subjects like art and music were considered to be some of the least important in the curriculum. On the other hand, subjects like math and science were over-emphasized, and positioned like career subjects. Now being an adult, I see how backwards that is. More and more, I find that creativity – especially creative problem solving – is a major keys to success. Some of the most successful people I know today are creators. They write books, produce podcasts and videos, publish blogs, and consistently try to come up with creative solutions in their lives and their work.

In this episode of the Future Thinkers Podcast, Mike and I talk about creativity and why we think it’s possibly the most important thing in the human life. We also talk about how creativity plays into the concept of the Technological Singularity.

We discuss the future of AI and humanity, and whether we will ever merge with Artificial Intelligence, and the role that nanotechnology may play in this.
