ETS Profiles: Dr. Vint Cerf – Chief Internet Evangelist for Google

  • The energy industry does not have a coherent set of standards yet.
  • There is hope that we can move away from atomic power generation.
  • AI has a major role in energy production and distribution.

On March 23, 2016 Zpryme sat down for a Special Edition of ETS Profiles with Dr. Vinton G. Cerf, Chief Internet Evangelist for Google and one of the “Fathers of the Internet.”

From the library at the Google offices in Washington, D.C. Dr. Cerf gathered decades of career-defining ones and zeros to field questions such as: What was the very first moment that influenced your engineering curiosity? With humans and internet gradually coalescing, how do you see AI applied to energy? What do you think about the singularity in general, and do you believe Elon Musk & co’s plan is the right approach?


One thousand years from now Bill Gates will be remembered…as well as Alan Turing and John Von Neumann.
