Conversations with the Future:

21 Visions for the 21st Century

For many years Nikola Danaylov has been interviewing the future

fear it. "Conversations with the Future" was born from those

interviews and Nik's unceasing need to explore "What If" with

some of the most forward thinking visionaries in the world today.

Nikola’s Singularity.FM interviews have had over 5 million views

TV networks as well as some of the biggest blogs in the world.

Nikola has established himself as the “Larry King of the Singularity.”

The Remesh platform uses machine learning to understand and engage groups of people with real-time conversation. This is achieved by allowing a single moderator to converse with a group as if they were a single intelligence. Beyond inline conversation, the group’s opinion on every response is collected, analyzed, and presented in real time.
