As far as my memory goes, whenever a movie tried to depict 2020s and the 2030s, it was always as an ultra futuristic lifestyle. 3 shells anyone?
And while people make jokes about teens eating Tide pods, we are sure we are moving in giant leaps towards the future we all occasionally dream off. Technology helps our lives allows us
Today, we want to specifically look at the question that we have been hearing more often lately – will we live to see and enjoy the top of the human potential in technology?
Will You Live to 100 Years?
In our daily lives, we tend to think of technology in terms of entertainment mostly. Social media, playing on casino app, etc. But technology has an impact that’s is transforming humanity as we know it.
Technology heals. For example, if you had been in an accident and lost a limb, now you have a chance like never before to walk again or to use your hands.
But that’s just the top of it. On a deeper level, we have stem cell research, 3D printers, and other technologies. Despite being so diverse, they all have potential of changing our lives by helping each person live up to be over 100 years old.
Technology that Protects
Who knows, maybe many more of us would live to be 100 years old if we only died of natural causes. Technology helps with that too. Just imagine – 1.3 million people die in road accidents every year. The same goes to various accidents that happen primarily due to human error. All of it, or most, could be prevented by technology.
It can be something simple as more advanced fire and gas alarms. And also things, that are much more complex, like AI, self-driving cars, etc.
Humanity on a Chip
We are all excited if technology managed to keep us relatively healthy but there are another possibility. Elon Musk recently started working in biotech with a goal to connect the human brain to AI.
Inevitably, people start exploring the possibilities of how we could live forever coexisting with AI. Although, for clarity sake, it is worth mentioning that for the large part, this is pseudo-science with a long way to even appear sensical.
In any case, the world is going to change a lot in the next 20 to 30 years. People will live longer. It is estimated that the average life expectancy will rise to 90 years old. We just hope we will be there too see it.
