Comedian Emmett Short hosts KNEE OF THE CURVE, a show about technology and futurism.
On a graph, the point of most EXTREME CHANGE is called the "knee of the curve." The pace of technological change is itself speeding up. We're approaching THE SINGULARITY, when technology starts advancing so fast humans can't comprehend it. In fact your parents have probably been living in the Singularity for years now.
AUTOMATION, HUMAN LEVEL AI, GENETIC ENGINEERING, CRYPTOCURRENCY, SPACE COLONIZATION. This news will impact your life a lot more than Trump's latest tweet, and impact the planet more than bringing back coal.
If you want to hear about Trump or gerrymandering watch The Daily Show. If you want to hear how Elon Musk has a team of monkeys controlling iPhones with a Brain Computer Interface, watch Knee Of The Curve.
Emmett Short is the creator and host of Knee Of The Curve. Emmett is a standup comic from Northern California who performs regularly at The Punchline and has toured globally performing at colleges and clubs and for our troops overseas. In 2006 Emmett was invited to the Montreal Comedy Festival as one of their New Faces Of Comedy, alongside comics like Hannibal Buress and Adam Devine.
Emmett created KOTC because of his passion for SciFi and Futurism. Also he wants to live forever, or be downloaded. Whatever's clever. He hopes this show will keep you laughing all the way to your eventual enslavement by our robot overlords.
