It’s interesting to think about the magnificent speed that technology has grown over the past two decades considering that Moore's Law says technology now doubles every year! But imagining what life would be like in 100 years? Crazy! Here are some theories/predictions on just what we would be able to do in the future.
1. Super Humans
Thanks to the fast pace development of cybernetics and DNA engineering, in the near future we would most likely have some extremely intelligent and potentially immortal super humans, scary right? Now you may think, “Where does ‘immortal’ part play into this?”, WELL, I’m glad you asked this folks, scientists have now developed a heart-hugging device that could keep the heart beating, forever.
2. Nanobots Coexisting with Body Cells
Shockingly enough, this has a very high chance of happening, because it’s already in the making! While Medical Nanobots as of right now only exist in theory, the study and construction lie in a rapidly growing field, making the development substantially possible within the next 15 years.
3. We Will Have Grasped the Use of Nuclear Fusion
While it does depend on what other energy sources we could come across until then, the use of nuclear fusion as an energy source has been predicted to happen by at least 2045-2050, and definitely by 2100, as in acts as an “… almost inexhaustible source of energy for future generations.”
4. We Will Bridge the Gap Between Our Brains and AI to Process Information Faster
I don’t know about you, but this one is especially interesting. This is one of the many things we can expect out of many people even by 2050, and everyone by 2075. Even Elon Musk has jumped on board and has developed Nueralink, “a venture to merge the human brain with AI”. While this may seem useless right now, and even scary, it may prove useful to those who have a serious medical condition, and even prove to be an alternative to brain surgery.
5. Climate Control
While there is already technology for moderating tornadoes and rain, it is expected that geoengineering will make a wide spread growth. And with climate change concerns, everyone’s attention is focused primarily on the aspect now more than ever before. It will not be cheap and would have to be used in moderation / dire situations. Maybe in the future though, we’ll find a way to make seemingly impossible inventions become incredibly easy to understand/ process, and make!
Cheers to all of us living for 100 years and maybe more! 🍻
