Future Tech – We work less time, yet we do more things. We own fewer goods yet we share more. We hate system as yet, we are creating a new sharing economy, maximising availability and usage of temporary spaces for living, working, storage, and parking.
Here is just a personal view of what’s coming.
1. The A.I. Revolution
By 2020, the A.I. is self-learning, self-sustainable., ex. Coseer, top 10 major languages, at 99% accuracy. 2025, the A.I. is a part of you, implanted, augmenting your brain.
By 2030, the machine programs its own emotional algorithms. Of , if you like, the sky is the limit as the A.I. can think out of box.
2. New Superpowers
Technology: India, Singapore, South Korea. China to lose 400 million people by 2100, from an estimated peak of 1.4 billion at the end of this decade. Asia, to become the “home” of generation Alpha.
3. The New Consumer
Technology accelerates and changes everything we know and generations Z and Alpha are not the same as X and Y.
This new type of consumer, Z & Alpha is not only tech-savvy but also more complex to deal with. Expect massive cultural differences as Alpha’s leading force originates from Asia, where Baby Boomers, X, and Millennials originate mostly from “western culture.”
4. Delhi Or New York?
In the future of tech, Delhi is not yet New York. Gasoline remains more valuable than connectivity, however, its value decreases as the urbanisation and the technological advances take over.
5. Need vs Demand
“There is more certainty in reselling the past than inventing the future” is no longer relevant. Your business must put the accent on what the consumer needs rather than the existing demand. Innovation comes first in future tech.
6. Faking The Fakes
If it can be faked, it is going to be faked. China remains the lowest trust consumer society in the world for the next five years. Craftsmanship and heritage are not what it seems.
7. Power Shift
The power of connectivity increases in future tech. Ex: cutting off the Internet would affect Iran’s regime ability to control the masses more than it would hinder its opposition.
8. Future Tech – True Industrial Revolution
Cars, buildings, devices, clothes and even human replacement organs are going to be made of graphene. It is the powerhouse of the future tech. With Graphene, everything “tastes” better.
9. The Internet
Shopping, news, job interviews, bills, social media, are already a big part of the internet world. The Internet is no longer just a big part of our daily life, the Internet is our daily life.
10. The Internet o Things
Seeing the tip of the iceberg as we have just scratched the surface, with 99% of the physical world, yet to be connected.
11. Tech In Fashion – Fashiontech
A beautiful paradox: We tend to define tech-infused garments and accessories as FashionTech, thinking that it develops into a new industry running in parallel to fashion. In fact, the more technology the Fashion Industry is going to adopt and use, the more mainstream is going to become.
Fashion always comes first and if your masterpiece is not fashionable it won’t sell. The mantra is AUGMENT, not REINVENT.
12. Generation Alpha
Generation Alpha; post-2013-2015, this generation is not going to use technology, but become THE technology.
13. Future Tech – Future Jobs
Although current jobs will be destroyed, better jobs will be created as economies adapt.
We have more time at our disposal as we work less, we work smarter, we work “digital.”
Billions of people, units of information, meta-patterns, interconnections. We are our own creation; we have become data.
