'Prometheus' Viral - TED2023

Peter Weyland (played by Guy Pearce) at TED2023: I will change the world. A TEDTalk from the future as envisioned by 'Prometheus' director Ridley Scott.

Peter Weyland has been a magnet for controversy since he announced his intent to build the first convincingly humanoid robotic system by the end of the decade.

Whether challenging the ethical boundaries of medicine with nanotechnology or going toe to toe with the Vatican itself on the issue of gene-therapy sterilization, Sir Peter prides himself on his motto, “If we can, we must.” After a three year media blackout, Weyland has finally emerged to reveal where he’s heading next. Wherever that may be, we will most certainly want to follow.
