Can you imagine what our world would be like in thirty years? If you hesitate about it, then read our article. Below you will find out how our world will change in 2045, according to top scientists.
The world is going to be a very different place in 2045
It is actually very challenging process to forecast the future. However, when it comes to forward thinking and technological advances specialists that work at the Pentagon's research agency are the best people to ask some questions about the future of our planet.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DAPRA) started to work in 1958. Since that time they have already implemented many military innovations to the civilian market. Among the most important ones we can name global-positioning systems, advanced robotics, and the Web.
What will probably happen in 2045?
Numerous artificial intelligence and robots are likely to change plenty of contemporary industries. Drone aircrafts will carry on their dive from the military to the civilian industry. Self-driving cars will probably help your to travel a lot more manageable.
DARPA experts have still much to say about the future of the world. The top scientists have tried to forecast what they picture reality in thirty years from now.
Dr. Justin Sanchez
The director of DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office and the prominent neuroscientist, Dr. Justin Sanchez, thinks that people will be at a point where they will be able to manage things by using their mind only.
He comments his considerations in the following way:
“Imagine a world where you could just use your thoughts to control your environment. Think about controlling diverse aspects of your home just using your brain signals, or maybe communicating with both your family and your friends just using neural activity from your brain”.
Doctor Sanchez has also admitted that currently DARPA is working on neuro technologies that can allow this coming true. There are already definite examples of these types of innovative breakthroughs in action, like brain implants managing prosthetic arms.
A week ago DARPA demonstrated this amazing technology for the very first time. It allowed paralyzed man to return the sense of touch, as brain implants provide the feeling “as if his own hand were being touched”.
There are many other innovative things that wait for people in the future. The director of DARPA Defense Sciences Office and a respected geologist Stefanie Tompkins says that plenty of other stimulating things for the buildings and other objects are around us.
Stefanie Tompkins believes that people will have the opportunity to build unbelievably strong but very lightweight constructions. For example, it may be a huge skyscraper made of materials that are light as carbon fiber and at the same time strong as steel.
Former astronaut, aerospace engineer, and deputy director of DARPA's Tactical Technologies Office, Pamela Melroy added some new information to her colleagues’ thoughts:
“In 30 years, I imagine a world where we don't even distinguish the materials that surround us. I suppose in 2045 we will find out that we have a very diverse relationship with the machines around us. I think that we will begin to see a time when we're able to just chatter or even press a button to interact with a machine to get things done more brightly, instead of using rudimentary voice-recognition systems or keyboards. For instance, right now there are multiple steps that have to be taken to organize yourself for landing in an aircraft. These are navigation, get out of the cruise mode, start setting up the throttles ... put the gear down. All of these steps have to happen in the right sequence”.
Instead of this, the scientist imagines an aircraft landing to be an extremely simple process. In thirty years a pilot should just say “Prepare for landing”, and computer will make the series of compound steps it needs to do to make that occur.
Pamela Melroy made a conclusion that our future world will be full of those types of examples where we can be in touch straight our intent and have very multifaceted outcomes by working jointly.
