Have you ever wondered what kind of world the futurist Ray Kurzweil predicted until 2099, with so many precise foresight? Here are the developments expected to happen in our world until 2099.
Have you heard of Ray Kurzweil before? Kurzweil, an inventor, futurist, and writer, is generally known for his proprietary technology prophecies. Kurzweil has many different prophecies about the future, and some of them have even happened; The disintegration of the Soviet Union, the defeat of the world’s best chess player by a computer, virtual assistants such as Siri, Bixby, virtual reality and enhanced reality.
Ray Kurzweil published a report on estimates he made in 1990, 1999 and 2005. Of the 147 predictions he made, 115 were fully realized. 12 is correct in the whole, 17 is partially correct, 3 is completely wrong. So we can say that Kurzweil has a correct prefix of 86%. Let’s take a look at Ray Kurzweil’s foresight of the 21st century:
Humanity will suffer diseases that cause 95% of people in developed countries to die.
The aging process will slow down first, then the cycle will reverse.
Computers will be even smaller. After that, the shapes will change and become part of our clothes.
A new world government will emerge and represent the whole humanity.
From 2020, nanotechnology-based ‘human body v2.0’ will emerge.
Advertisements will be published individually by individual voice channels.
Automobiles and flying vehicles will be completely autonomous.
Nanotechnology will emerge that will allow us to understand how the human brain works.
It will be possible to create a perfect computer model of the human brain. It will create an artificial intelligence that can be raced with the complexity and power of the human brain until the end of the 2020s.
Artificial intelligence is going to prove that you have a human consciousness, passing the Turing Test. Until the late 2020s, virtual reality will undergo incredible development, and it will be very difficult to distinguish it from physical reality.
Nanomachines will be widely used in medicine.
Nanotechnology production will increase as world economy changes.
Nanorobots will be able to populate the cells to feed the cells and remove the wastes, traditional feeding methods will be unnecessary.
Consciousness will be possible. People will be able to internate themselves to live in both a virtual and a physical reality.
Virtual reality equipment will be gone. Nanorobots will be inserted into the brain to interact directly with brain cells.
The nanomachines in the human brain will develop our sensory and conceptual abilities, including memory.
People telepatically communicate via wireless networks.
It will be possible to change human personality and memory.
Say hello to human body v3.0.
It will be possible to change shapes in the new body as we want.
Artificial intelligence will be billions of times better than biological intelligence.
People will spend most of their time in a Matrix-like virtual world.
Nanorobots will be widely used to form all shapes and surfaces.
Raised or ‘loaded’ people will become ordinary.
Computers that are billions of times smarter than humans can be picked up for charges like $ 1,000.
Artificial intelligence will overtake itself; It will be the dominant life on earth.
The overcoming of artificial intelligence will completely change the history of humanity.
Since there is not much difference between the machines and people, it is almost impossible to technically disappear humanity. Of course, the humanity that exists today will not be one.
The world will turn into a giant computer.
People who want to protect their natural bodies will live in areas that are specially reserved for them.
Humanity will exceed the limits of light speed.
Artificial intelligence will first spread to the Solar System and then to the entire galaxy.
Planets, meteors, stars will make life supportive.
By 2099, machines will be able to build computers on a planetary scale.
There are not many predictions anymore, Cinsten. But Ray Kurzweil is a futurist and we can easily say that you see the future we can not see. What do you think about Kurzweil’s foresight? You can share your opinions and your different predictions with us in comments.
