Nanobots directly will plug our brains into the cloud
Futurologists believe, that by 2050, nanobots will plug our brains straight into the cloud, it will completely immerse us in virtual reality through our nervous system. Just like we do know with our smartphones, we will be able to do it with our brains, we’ll be able to expand our neocortex in the cloud. And forget about memory problems, evidence problems, etc.
AI will have a positive impact on a job search process
Many people worry about AI in our lives as they think that in the end robots will replace people and we won’t have jobs for is. But, according to Forbes, In 2020, AI will become a positive net job motivator, creating 2.3M jobs while eliminating only 1.8M jobs. And we are talking about 2020, just in 2 years, so let’s see what opportunities it can bring us in 30 years.
IoT technology will change product designs
According to Forbes, by 2020, IoT technology will be in 95% of electronics for new product designs. And by 2050 it is expected to have everything connected to the cloud and to the internet.
Space tourism: a week in orbit
According to Business Insider, Space tourism could be feasible in 2050, but likely only for the very wealthy. Rocket companies like Jeff Bezo’s Blue Origin and Elon Musk’s SpaceX will push the envelope with space travel enough that tourism will be feasible in the year 2050.
Self-driving cars will make driving safer
Despite the crashes involving self-driving cars that have hit the headlines these years, this area of AI could dramatically reduce deaths and injuries on our roads. According to a report by Stanford University, not only will self-driving cars reduce traffic-related deaths and injuries, but they could bring about changes in our lifestyles as well. We will have more time for ourselves.
Charge your iPhone with the power of a plant
Did you know that you can charge your iPhone with the power of a plant? Forests can become the energy stations of the future. Now it is becoming possible, for example, Bio is a clean-tech company capable of generating electricity from the plant’s photosynthesis.
Ocean Thermal Energy can take us to 100% renewable-energy
Ocean thermal energy is a largely untapped resource, and one of the world’s largest renewable energy sources. For example, right now Bluerise is working on creating an energy breakthrough by generating utility-scale electricity through Ocean thermal energy conversion. It will be able to outcompete fossil fuel-based generation and other renewables that require storage and grid balancing. It will play a crucial role in the future energy mix being one of the very few constant energy sources, available day and night, year-round.
EU will face a shortage of 800,000 IT workers by 2020
There is a huge demand for developers in Europe, yet most IT education is solely available in English. With 24 official languages spoken in Europe alone, it’s no surprise that non-native English speakers prefer to learn in their own language. However you can start seeing many coding academies, schools and universities focused only on training junior developers for specific companies’ demand, is it a language, a practice, etc. Even though this problem won’t be solved by 2020, with these new IT universities and academies, we can fix the situation by 2050.
Drone solution for discovering untouched places
Deep in underground mines, some zones are inaccessible. But a company like Innova started to work on builds drones that fly, drive and climb and use laser technology to scan zones and create a 3D map of them. With this advancing aerial robotics technology, we will be able to push human reach to any space untouched by man-made infrastructure.
