The world of tomorrow …

What would the world of tomorrow look like?

It’s an age old question people have asked over the years. Till recently, the¬†answers were typical. But the emergence of AI, Virtual reality, and ubiquitous computing has changed everything.

 

Which leads me to ponder, what will the world look like in 50 years? 20 years? 10 years? 5 years??

 

It’s impossible to predict, give the rapid progress of technology. In the 1960s, could anyone have predicted the rise of the Internet and the emergence of mobile computing? Sure, our favorite Star Trek episodes showed mobile phone communicators, or tablets, but did anyone think this will be possible within a mere 50 years?

The rise of AI changes many things. Till recently, our imagination was limited only by our experiences, but the brave new world is nothing like we have experienced. With autonomous cars zipping by, our lives ruled by apps, machine learning, how can we predict the world of, even 5 years from now?
