What Would Technology Be Like in 2050?

It seems like it ages from now when we think about 2050, and we imagine a completely different world, but in reality, it’s only 30 years from now, and we can already know what it’s going to be possible to have by that time. We have many environmental, social, and technological problems, and let us see how technology can resolve them by 2050. Today’s article is about future technology!

Half of the current jobs in the world are unlikely to exist in 2050

The world is changing more quickly than we think and it should change the way we learn things and what we learn. By empowering their employees to take ownership of their professional development, employers should create an engaging learning culture at work.

Drone solution for discovering untouched places

Some zones are inaccessible deep in underground mines. But businesses like Inkonova have begun to work on building drones that fly, drive and climb and use laser technology to scan zones and create a 3D map of them. We will be able to push human reach to any space untouched by man-made infrastructure with this advanced aerial robotics technology.

EU will face a shortage of 800,000 IT workers by 2020

The demand for developers in Europe is enormous, yet most IT education is only available in English. It’s no surprise that non-native English speakers prefer to learn in their own language, with 24 official languages spoken in Europe alone. However, many coding academies, schools, and universities can begin to focus only on training junior developers for the demand of specific companies, whether it is a language, a practice, etc. Even though this problem won’t be solved by 2020, we can fix the situation by 2050 with these new IT universities and academies.

Ocean Thermal Energy can take us to 100% renewable-energy

Thermal energy from the oceans is a largely untapped resource and one of the largest sources of renewable energy in the world. Right now, for example, Bluerise is working on generating an energy breakthrough by generating electricity on a utility-scale through the conversion of ocean thermal energy. Fossil fuel-based generation and other renewables that require storage and grid balancing will be able to outcompete. It will play a critical role in being one of the very few constant energy sources available day and night, year-round, in the future energy mix.

Charge your iphone with the power of a plant

Were you aware that you can charge a plant power for your iPhone? Forests can become future energy stations. For example, it is now becoming possible for Bioo to be a clean-tech company capable of generating electricity from the photosynthesis of plants.

Self-driving cars will make driving safer

This area of AI can dramatically reduce the deaths and injuries on our roads, despite crashes involving self-driving cars in the headlines of those years. Stanford University’s report not only reduces road deaths and injuries by self-driving cars but can lead to changes in our lifestyles. For ourselves, we’ll have more time.

Increased comfort and reduced cognitive burden can also affect where people choose to live with self-driving cars and shared transport.

Space tourism: a week in orbit

Space tourism could be feasible in 2050, but likely only for the very affluent, according to Business Insider. The space tourism package is supplied by Rocket companies such as Jeff Bezo’s Blue Origin and Elon Musk’s SpaceX to make tourism viable by 2050. “Anyone who would allow himself to pay 100 million can spend a week in orbit but that’s just for wealthy people by 2050,” he said. “At any time soon, it will not be something that is cheap.”

AI will become a positive net job motivator

Many people are worried about AI in our lives because they believe that people will be replaced by robots in the end and we won’t have jobs.  In 2020, AI will become a positive net job motivator, creating 2.3 million jobs while eliminating only 1.8 million jobs, according to Forbes. And we’re talking about 2020, just 2 years from now, so let’s see what opportunities 30 years from now can bring us.

People reincarnation through AI

Sounds frightening, I know! But Kurzweil says that we can ‘bring back’ our relatives with artificial intelligence, probably most religions will be very against it.

He says that we will be able to send nanobots into the brains of people to extract memories of loved ones by 2050. Increase that with a deceased DNA sample, and it will be possible to create a compelling virtual version of someone who has passed on.

Nanobots will plug our brains straight into the cloud

Nanobots, the technology of the future. He believes that by 2050, nanobots will directly plug our brains into the cloud and give us complete immersion of the virtual reality from the nervous system. Just as we know from our smartphones, we’re going to be able to do it with our brains, and we’re going to be able to expand our cloud neocortex. And forget memory issues, proof issues, etc.

These are the technologies and innovations that I have found most interesting. There are a lot more of them, I am sure, please feel free to share them in the comments section below! I will be pleased to discuss what, in your opinion, is the technology of the future.
