Technology and the Future
There have been many changes in the technology scene of late. This gives us pause for thought on the future. There is a lot of good yet scary things to come from technology. Here are some of the things we expect to see in the coming months.
Seeing as social media has led to some great evils in society, the government may be forced to step in and watch how it is used. Their reason for doing so shall be to make sure society does not degrade to something truly uglier.
We also expect to see more space exploration runs. We managed as humanity to go deeper into space than we had ever done before. In our quest to learn more about how our solar system was formed, such expeditions shall increase in due course.
We can also say that solar power usage shall increase this time. There have been found ways of making solar panels that are not costly. This means that as the costly manufacturing process of solar panels reduces, more and more places shall adopt the use of this free and clean source of energy.
There shall also be more attention paid to the issue of climate change. At the moment, our relationship with nature is at its worst. The efforts people put in this regard have not made an impact, but that will change soon.
There have also been technological advancement in the field of prosthetics, which should lead to better integration of these artificial limbs with the patients. There has been the development of brain-implanted electrodes that shall make controlling these limbs much easier and even possible for most people.
We will also finally manage to minimize the time we spend in front of our smartphone screens. As these gadgets get better at their functions, so have we gotten more and more addicted to using them. But there is a new trend of hands-free technology that shall see our need to stare at the screens less and less. Technology shall finally get to a more useful and less intrusive level.
There is also the hope that with the recent discovery of the influence of DNA on the spread of some diseases, we shall manage these deadly conditions much better. Early detection of the probability of catching some of those diseases through the study of DNA shall make for better preparedness and treatment of those conditions.
There is also the realization that we can discover more areas in which science and technology can play a major role in making our lives much better than they were before. You can read more about it on this site.
