The most futuristic developments we can expect in the next 10 years
As we know, the end of a decade is approaching, therefore it is suggested that it is time for us to set our sights on the next. In this way, one could say that the 2020s promise to be anything but boring. From the revolution of automation to the geohacking of the planet and the radical advances in biotechnology, these are the most futuristic developments that can be expected in the next 10 years.
The 2020s or abbreviated 20s will be the next decade of the 21st century. It will also be the third decade of the third millennium and the 21st century. It will begin on January 1, 2020, and end on December 31, 2029.
Certainly making predictions is easy; Now, get it right, if it’s hard. That said, some tangible trends are emerging that should allow us to make some informed assumptions about what the future will hold in the next 10 years.
It is important to note that the following decade has been defined as: “The International Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development and The United Nations International Decade on the Restoration of Ecosystems”.
Thus, it is likely that the 2020s present a volatile mixture of the very good, the very bad and the very strange. And it is that artificial intelligence will become more frightening during the 2020s, but so will climate change.
There is a very good chance that the nations of the world will continue to fail to meet their climate goals and that the status quo approach to the environment will reign. In the place of binding international agreements and treaties, it is likely that we will embark on our first awkward efforts to solve the environment through other means, namely the futuristic and potentially risky geo-engineering perspective.
Likewise, the next decade will see a dramatic increase in our understanding of the cosmos and possibly even extraterrestrial life. Next-generation telescopes, such as the James Webb Space Telescope and the European Extremely Large Telescope, are prepared to redefine our knowledge of the galaxy.
