Technological forecasts for our world in 2050
The technological evolution expected in 2050 may change our lives. 2050 seems to be a long way off, but we are succeeding in predicting the future of our company and its technological advances.
Nanobots will connect our brains to the cloud
By 2050, nanobots (robots whose components are on a nanoscale) will be created and will connect our brain directly to the cloud, allowing us to fully immerse ourselves in virtual reality from the nervous system. We can do what we already do with our smartphones with our brains. We can then extend our neocortex into the cloud.
IoT will change the design of the products
By 2020, IoT (or in other words “The Internet of Things”) will be used in 95 percent of electronic components used to design new products. And by 2050, everything should be connected to the cloud and the internet.
Space tourism could be possible by 2050. Rocket companies such as Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin and Elon Musk’s SpaceX will push the limits of space travel to the point where space tourism will be possible in 2050. So we can travel to Mars and discover this planet.
The car will make driving safer through automated driving. Despite accidents involving automated cars, this area of AI could significantly reduce the number of deaths and injuries on our roads. According to a Stanford University report, self-driving cars will not only reduce the number of traffic-related deaths and injuries, but they could also lead to changes in our lifestyles. We’ll have more time for ourselves.
Prosthetics could give people new skills
We have already started to see people using advanced prostheses. James Young, a 25-year-old biologist, has a prosthetic arm with a personal drone and an integrated flashlight.
Pearson, a futurist with an accuracy rate of 85 percent, said that prostheses will continue to be increasingly advanced to the point where people will accept a fusion between technology and the body. Also, people will be able to choose to have cybernetic implants in their legs to make them stronger.
Clothing could give people superhuman skills
Mr. Pearson gave the example of the exoskeleton combination. Indeed, Hyundai has recently created an exoskeleton combination that can facilitate lifting of heavy loads.
Other types of advanced clothing may also be considered, such as leggings that make walking and running easier, or a Spiderman suit made with polymer gels to improve strength.
A hologram is an image that contains three-dimensional information. It results from an image between the waves from a photographed object and those from the laser beam used to illuminate that object. Microsoft is one of the giants that has contributed to the development of technology around the world. With Microsoft’s success in developing this method, many technology companies have also been acquired by Microsoft to help them develop future projects. One of the future predictions in the world of Microsoft technology is the hologram. The objective is to record the volume of an object in 3D and reproduce it as image from phones, computers, tablets, etc.
The sophistication of this future-oriented technology will be found on glass, but also on the walls of your home.
In 2050, robots will compete with humans: the computers that make up their artificial “brains” will execute 100,000 billion instructions per second.
We will achieve the initial objective of robotics, described so much in science fiction novels: robots will move autonomously and have the intellectual capacities of a human being.
There is also concern that robots may replace people working in the health sector. Indeed, in the field of pharmacy, the profession of medicine and nursing will be threatened by robots, due to the emergence of new technologies for diagnosing diseases.
The technology for implantable devices in the form of a chip is under development and is expected to be available in 2050. Mobile phones will be able to be implanted in the human body and this data implementation will make the functionality of the device more accurate. What we use every day as a smartphone will be under our skin.
The evolution of drones
In the depths of underground mines, some areas are inaccessible. But a company like Inkonova has started working on building drones that fly, climb and use laser technology to scan areas and create a 3D map of them. With this advanced robotics technology, we will be able to extend the human reach to any space that is not affected by artificial infrastructure.
