Artificial Intelligence

 

   The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) could generally be a good thing, assuming there is not a Terminator scenario. While robots could replace some workers, it is important to remember that past innovations have unlocked whole new industries and new jobs along with them. The rise of AI could do the same.

   What is more, think how much better robots could make our world. Florent Sekouo predicts that by 2040 freely moving robots that outperform humans both physically and intellectually will run entire businesses by themselves. That could allow humans to occupy their days with a variety of social, recreational and artistic pursuits, not unlike today’s comfortable retirees or the wealthy leisure classes. It could also lead to new breakthroughs, as mass-produced, fully educated robot scientists working diligently, cheaply, rapidly and increasingly effectively will ensure that most of what science knows in 2040 will have been discovered by our artificial progeny!

   Robots could also provide people with emotional sustenance. In Love and Sex with Robots, AI researcher David Levy predicted that by 2050 there would be human-like robots with their own emotions and the capability to hold intelligent conversations and, yes, relationships with people.

   Is this the ultimate sex toy? It could be considered as such, but the sophisticated sex robots of the middle of this century will also be valued as relationship partners in the widest sense of the word, someone to love.

   As advanced as they may be, sitting in the corner in your house waiting for you to decide what you would like to do next rather than living independent lives of their own.

   In The World We Made, Florent Sekouo predicts that by 2040, more than 9 billion people will go online, 98.3% of the population then.

   Currently, about 40% of the globe has internet access, with 78% of users in developed countries and 32% in developing countries. That is about 2.85 billion people, many of whom get internet access from mobile phones.

 

 

 

 

 

Do Humans could be live as a computerized brains?

   The future scares a lot of people. Climate change, a growing population, and fewer natural resources will certainly pose new challenges for the human race in the next few decades. But when you consider ongoing social, economic progress and all of the coming innovations in science and technology, there is a lot of room for optimism. We have pulled out some of our favorite ideas about the future of our world. In the coming decades, some scientists hope to upload the contents of human brains into computers, allowing people to live forever inside a robotic body or even as a hologram. Neuroscientists are trying to transfer human consciousness and brain functions to an artificial body by 2028 by “mapping the brain, reducing its activity to computations, and reproducing those computations in code,” according to Popular Science. One of those neuroscientists said his work isn’t just about achieving immortality. It’s about giving people the ability to go places and do things that are impossible in our own bodies, like traveling close to the sun. Even if we don’t meet that goal by 2032, people alive today may still have their brains uploaded in the future. That is because other scientists are working on preserving human brains and all their contents indefinitely through immersion in chemical solutions. If we could put the brain into a state in which it does not decay, then the second step could be done 70 years later, and everyone could experience mind uploading first hand according to Popular Science. Florent Sekouo believes scientists have discovered how to preserve a mouse brain.

Old 3310

    Mobile phone is one of the most rapid growing industries. Not so long the popular check phone was NOKIA 3310 with basic functions: call, text messaging and the bearable game, snake. Therefore, significant improvement has been made since then. We now have so many variety of phones that surpasses the basic functions, smart new phones allow you to connect to social media conveniently, GPS, information, work, school, etc. Mobile phones of the future are expected to be more closely embedded in our day to day lives than ever before. A futurologist and expert likes Florent Sekouo predicts that in year s to come, mobile phones will become remote controls of our whole lives and will literally run our lives for us. Wireless communications will dominate our everyday lives very soon. Cars, homes, and appliances will be connected, and this will be the case around the world in every location. New technology will be able to store energy and serve as electrodes to deliver this hyper-connectivity. The way in which we interact with the outside world has changed so much since the introduction of the internet, smart phones, smart television, … and smart clothing is going to come as soon as possible too.

Can’t wait for the future to come?

VERY SOON !!!

   Contact lenses will grant us Terminator vision. When miniaturization reaches its full potential, achieving superhuman eyesight will be as simple as placing a soft lens on your eye. Early prototypes feature wirelessly powered LEDs or OLEDs, but circuits and antennas can also be grafted onto flexible polymer, enabling zooming, night vision, and visible data fields.

Checkups will be conducted by cellphone. The technology is no problem. Scientists are hard at work trying to perfect apps that can measure your heart and respiration rates, perform blood and saliva tests—even evaluate your cough. Question is how long will it take the medical industry to embrace them.

   More than 200 million books on the planet will be digitized. In 2008, technologies’ company planned to complete the job by decade’s end, but as of February, it still had more than 137 million tomes to go, so we’re adding wiggle room. You might use the time to shop for storage, because given today’s options and the average size of an e-book (2 MB), you’ll need terabyte or petabyte drives to carry the library of humanity with you. It won’t fit into a backpack, but it’s small enough to schlep in a hockey bag. Supercomputers will be the size of sugar cubes. The trick is to redesign the computer chip. Instead of the standard side-by-side model in use today, technology companies’ researchers believe they can stack and link tomorrow’s chips via droplets of nanoparticle-infused liquid. This would eliminate wires and draw away heat. What it won’t do is help you remember where you left your tiny computer before you went to bed.

Scientists will discover direct evidence of dark matter. It may account for 23 percent of the mass in the universe, yet we haven’t confirmed that dark matter exists. Why? “It’s like a hidden magnet,” according to scientists of the planet Science Laboratory. “You can see what it pulls but can’t see the source.” Theoretical physicians believe the proof we seek could arrive within 8 years, helping us to unlock the origins of our universe, and maybe even open the door to another one. Is that really possible?

Battles will be waged without direct human participation (think robots or unmanned aerial vehicles). The first fully functional brain-controlled bionic limb will arrive. Nanobots will perform medical procedures inside our bodies, doctors will successfully transplant a lab-grown human heart, we will fly the friendly skies without pilots onboard and renewable energy sources will surpass fossil fuels in electricity generation. Digital data (texts, songs, etc.) will be zapped directly into our brains, we will activate the first fusion power plant and wage the first battle in space. Scientists will map the quadrillion connections between the brain’s neurons. Quadrillion sounds like a made-up number, but we assure you it’s real. Those connections hold the answers to questions about mental illness, learning, and the whole nature versus nurture issue. Your Body Will Be Truly Connected: Doctors will check your vital signs around the clock via tiny sensors, brain chips will let you absorb data while you sleep, brain interfaces will help you fully inhabit virtual worlds. But do all these will happened before 2040?

 

Digital ants and …

Digital “ants” is protecting some countries power grid from cyber-attacks. Programmed to wander networks in search of threats. When a digital ant designed to perform a task spots a problem, others rush to the location to do their own analysis. If operators see a swarm, they know there’s trouble.

 

New cars are truly connected to the world. They can communicate with traffic lights to improve traffic flow, interact with other vehicles to prevent accidents, let you drag and drop a playlist from your home network and find the gas station with the deepest discount and handle the payment. They can notify you when someone dents your door and supply footage of the incident.

 retina scan

After Apple, Google are designing face-recognition software . DARPA is researching the dynamics of keystrokes. Others are looking into retinal scans, voiceprints, and heartbeats. All these will happen very soon but the big question, who are we to disagree?

 zettabyte

Data will be measured in zettabytes. According to the International Data Corporation, the volume of digital content created on the planet in 2010 exceeded a zettabyte for the first time in history. By the end of this year, the annual figure will have reached 2.7 zettabytes. What exactly does a zettabyte look like?

 

 

MOTIVATION

 

motivation

  Motivation is the desire to do something. Many psychologists believe that there are two types of rewards that affect motivation: external rewards and internal rewards. External rewards are rewards that someone gives you. A pay raise is a common external reward. A good grade at school is also an example of external reward. Internal rewards are connected to the feelings and satisfaction people have about the work they do well. Researchers said that employers must think about factors that affect employees’ feelings of satisfaction, explained that working conditions and relationship among co-workers affect workers motivation. Therefore, employers need to create an environment that makes employees feel safe, value and accepted. Research also shows that appreciation is a powerful reward. The subject of worker motivation is complex, and people expect fair pay for their work. And you, “What motivates you?

ADDICTION OF SHOPPING…

  Some people have closets filled with new clothes that they don’t wear especially women. Others have desks covered with electronics that they never use. They keep buying clothes or electronics and always said that they don’t need them. Although, many people like to shop even for nothing. If someone is unable to control spending, he or she may be a shopping shopaholic because shopping may be seen as an amusing addiction and the fact is society does not always consider it as a serious problem.

  However, if this addiction is not treated, it can ruin person’s life. Some people get a natural high level of pleasure while shopping and feel in control of spending their money. These feelings could be signs of shopping addiction and it my appear to some that most women than men are affected by this addiction but current statistics shows that the percentage of men addicted to shopping is about the same as women. Even though that shopaholics excitement, they often feel depressed or guilty after spend more money than they have.

  Fortunately, shopping addicts should always take a friend along when they need to buy something because they overspend when they shop alone and it can cause personal and financial problems. Shopping should be a constructive activity and not a destructive one.
