Kaspersky Lab experts have decided to mark the anniversary by projecting into the future to try to imagine how computer technology could evolve and continue to change our lives through the new digital realities of 2045, that is, ie within 30 years.
Robots in our daily
In a not so distant future, it is likely that the global population will billions of human beings, but also robots , the latter being responsible for almost all of the heavy and repetitive tasks. Humans work to improve software robots and IT companies develop programs for them as they do today for applications to be downloaded and installed by users.
To some extent, the boundaries between robots and humans will fade. The surgical implantation of artificial organs and electronically controlled prostheses become commonplace. Nano-robots will travel in the human body to deliver drugs to diseased cells or perform acts of microsurgery. Specially installed sensors monitor the health of individuals and transmit their measurements to a storage space in the cloud, accessible to the general practitioner. All this should lead to a considerable increase in life expectancy.
In addition, smart homes become their comfort elements being for Most fully automated. The automation software will take care of managing the consumption and supply of energy, water, food and other supplies. Occupants will only have to ensure that their bank account are sufficient funds for the settlement of bills.
We finally will see the emergence of real digital alter egos, in a unified global infrastructure, with a capacity for self-regulation and participating in the management of life on the planet. The system will run a bit like TOR Today, the most active and effective users being promoted to moderators. It will be for distribution of resources among the population, the prevention of armed conflicts and other humanitarian activities.
3D printing, rapid and economical
The grunt work will not be the only ones to be relegated to the history books: the production of certain items no longer needed. Indeed, 3D printers will design and produce those we need, whether crockery, linen or bricks for a future home.
The end computers
Although it may have been the cause of the rise of the computer, the PC, in 2045, probably will not be visible in museums. To be more precise, we will not need a single tool for data processing, which is basically the work of a computer. This will be replaced by an even wider range of intelligent devices, many gadgets that gradually fulfill the functions of the current PC. For example, the financial analysis will be performed by a server run by the company concerned, through electronic documents, and a book on his personal computer.
However, not all will welcome enthusiastically this “brave new world” robotic. It is likely that the neo-Luddites will stand against the development of smart homes, automation in everyday life and robots. These opponents IT developments will refrain from use of systems, sophisticated devices or robots certain types of tasks and they refuse to have a digital identity.
Due to the current rate of development of information technology, it is difficult to give accurate predictions about its state in several decades. It is nonetheless clear that each year our technologies will further gain in intelligence for their users with the obligation not to be outdone. There is no doubt that cybercriminals will continue to make every effort to exploit every new computer progress for their own malicious aims. Yet, regardless of the state of our world in 30 years, we must start now to improve our comfort, our safety and well-being. Technology is only a tool and it is up to us to make it a good or bad use.
