What will the World be like in 100 years?
The world in 100 years? Well, changes will certainly have occurred. No doubt we will be communicating using highly developed technologies. The Internet was only the beginning. Wireless technologies will have matured to the point where we only need to think a thought, and it will be transmitted to the recipient.
The pervasive use of cellphones will have merged into personal communication devices that require no tactile input from the wearer. Video, pictures, audio, music will all be instantly available through a world-wide database of information.
Transportation will have matured to the point of being able to reach any point on the planet within 4 hours or less. High speed rail, aircraft, and ground transportation will all have reached critical mass, and the entire transportation sub-systems will be synchronized so that accidents have been totally eliminated.
Sensors in all moving vehicles, buses, trains, airplanes, cars, and even bicycles and motorcycles will no longer be subject to crashes, due to this accident-avoidence system. People will have even more free time to talke walks, read books, and socialize.
Food production will have matured to the point of massive abundance, enough to share with developing countries, and at a price that is afordable for all. The poorest to the richest will have sufficient healthy fresh produce, grain and beef to sustain them for their entire lives.
Work as we know it will evolve even further, with robots doing ever more manual labor, cleaning, garbage collection, home building, manufacturing and distribution will be automated to the point where only a few key individuals will be required to run society.
Advances in health and medicine will have found cures for lukemia, cancer, and heart attack and stroke. Doctors will be assisted by robotic nurses who can service over 50 patients per hour. No longer will people suffer in recovery from surgery, as the tools and electronics used in surgery will have evolved to the point of minimal invasive cutting and sewing up of human tissues.
All of the above changes can only occur, if we are diligent today, in the way we are treating our planet. Pollution will need to be eliminated. Re-processing of all organic or industrial waaste will require technologies still being invented.
The world in 100 years? Expect many more changes than I have discussed above. If I am still around to see these changes, you can tell me if my predictions were accurate!
