From 2015. It's time for a bit of a check-up!

The World in 2025: 8 Predictions for the Next 10 Years

In 2025, in accordance with Moore's Law, we'll see an acceleration in the rate of change as we move closer to a world of true abundance. Here are eight areas where we'll see extraordinary transformation in the next decade...

It seems a bit conservative, but I can definitely see all this coming to pass. Actually, because I expect banks to start failing this year, I think blockchain will surge to the top sooner than anyone expects. That might even be one of my entries for the inevitable "Your 2018 Predictions" thread.

I was watching a documentary on Bitcoin and it seems like a very good thing that we are effectively removing the power from the third parties aka the banks.

Totally agree with you Yuli.  I see all of these coming true in the next five years.

Even the first one? It's saying a 10 petaflop computer for $1000. There are only 6 computers on the planet today that are that fast, we're much more than 5 years away from getting that speed for $1000.

Worse case in my mind is that AI wins in the form of a singularity, and all of the rest of you follow sheepishly where it leads you - denying your own humanity in the process.  Human beings thus become an anachronism, even as their descendants enjoy all the trends discussed in the link provided in the opening post. The tragedy being that they never learn what it is to be human being - painful as that learning process may be.


The principles of justice define an appropriate path between dogmatism and intolerance on the one side, and a reductionism which regards religion and morality as mere preferences on the other.   - John Rawls
