The Polar Bears of this world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for whites.

I support the idea of a world where our basic necessities are provided for free (via automation) and we learn advanced concepts (any subject we want to master) on our own pace if we wish to obtain more "exotic" assets or entertainment.

 

I strongly think this will be in our future, if not exactly sure when it's going to come in full circle.

I think (I should say I hope) that education will move away from learning concepts and toward critical thinking and creativity.  Learning the "required material" for a history course no longer makes sense when it's all available online.  The existing educational status quo cannot possibly reform quickly enough.

The process of learning new "concepts" will become obsolete. It will be automatic. But that won't be valuable by itself... the next challenge will be using the existing knowledge we gained automatically to come up with new concepts that have not existed before. So, yeah, in other words, critical thinking and creativity will be vastly more valuable in a post-singularity world. We will come up with ways to dramatically enhance critical thinking and creativity, so much that Leonardo Da Vinci will seem like a snail that has no idea of the higher plane of existence.

School sucks. I like the 2060 prediction because it means school will no longer suck. It means that future generations of children won't have to suffer as did we.

These type of school will be available only to the rich, and not to the "poor". Rich people are going to get richer and poor will be poorer. Why do people expect that singularity will happen in our lifetime(I don't think that will ever happen). You need basic knowledge to understand so that you can go to more advance things. You need to learn to crawl before you can walk.

Here is the next generation of rich people

Sure. The only thing that link proves is that there's a sizable demographic of stupid and immature people, just like there's always been. While that one caveman who discovered fire however many thousand years ago was busy doing important things such as that, there were probably dozens of other cavemen back home wasting time by jousting with wooly mammoth bones. I don't think the current generation is worse than most others that we've cycled through throughout history; they're probably above average if anything.
