Techno-optimism is a loosely defined term that the progress of technological development can and likely will be used for the betterment of mankind.

Ray Kurzweil's optimistic futurist predictions are strongly associated with the idea of techno-optimism.

As synonym for techno-utopianism

Critics of the term often directly equate it with techno-utopianism, typically as a proxy for critique of Silicon Valley's soft libertarian politics.[1]
