8 things that next-generation won’t experience because of technology
If you were born in 1988 you would not be able to understand what life would be like without personal computer. Children who were born a decade later can’t understand what life is like without the Internet. The children born in 2008 have seen a world filled with smart phones. So, in the eyes of the children born this year, what will the world be when they reach the age of 18? According to Digital Trends, the following eight things will almost disappear in 2036:
Apple CEO, Tim Cook shared the expectation of living in a world where paper money does not exist. Possibly, the paper money will disappear as the way the dinosaurs have gone extinct. The development of NFC, Blockchain, and electronic payment technology will make the experience such as checks or money pockets of parents become out of date.
With the overwhelming concern of some parents, personal safety, and limited time with friends, the generation of the 1990s now has no rush to test driver license as before. This trend will continue to increase as auto-car technology becomes more popular.
By 2036, most cars on the street will be self-propelled vehicles. Despite the possibility that traditional cars will continue to "survive" in the premium segment, high insurance costs will make them much more expensive.
In 1980, 70 percent of teens worked in the United States during the summer vacation. Today, that number is only 40 percent - and is declining. In just 18 years, automation technology will eliminate basic services in the service industry. Why do they have to hire and train to serve, cook and answer the call while businesses can use unmanned aircrafts, robots or artificial intelligence at lower cost, more efficiently and without distraction at work?
The ability to speak another language becomes necessary as globalization brings states closer together. Fortunately, technology is a powerful aid for us. The ability to translate technology has become much more impressive than expected in just a few years.
Being restricted in one place
Several dozen years ago, most of us usually did not travel too far, but just turned around in a small area. By 2038, tourism activity will change beyond the present. Interstate missiles, as Elon Musk suggests, can allow us to move to any planet on less than an hour.
Passing away before the age of 100
Artificial intelligence is contributing a lot in creating new drugs, or bracelets that warn you about the health status, and the promising capabilities of the body in 3D. There are many ways in which medical technology extends human life in the future (not to mention the technology of self-propelled cars or robots that replace dangerous jobs).
The prediction is quite pessimistic: there is no privacy for each of us. Although the scandal that Facebook is facing will have a major impact on how businesses use user information, the impact of technology on privacy will not change much.
Hope that 18 more years, we will end up poverty. Innovations in new foods, such as meats made in the laboratory and genetically modified foods to provide a growing population of people around the globe.
New approaches to medical diagnosis and treatment will also remove many of the world's emerging diseases, including HIV and malaria. At the same time, thanks to the connectivity and online learning tools, people around the world will get higher education.
By 2036, smart cities will analyze every action we take, while smart devices equipped with AI technology will do the same thing in our homes.
