Hi. I've been a long time reader of this website, though I practically never participate in the forums.
Some introductions: I'm a chemical engineer that started my career in the electronics manufacturing industry about a year and a half ago. I'm currently also going for my masters in manufacturing engineering and trying to focus my electives on electronics fabrication (semiconductor, MEMs, etc.)
I was originally inspired to go into engineering by reading a couple of books about the future as well as by reading the content on this website. I wanted to help bring about these technologies, and although I'm not great at math and science, I thought I could contribute by working hard and possibly becoming a decent engineer.
Question: How does one actually prepare for the future? Almost everyone reading this will know about 5G, the Internet of Things, increased automation, self driving cars, Blockchain, etc. These more near-future technologies could radically transform the world. This is not even including technologies such as artificial general intelligence. How do you even prepare for something like that? And if overall technological development keeps up its current pace, things such as AGI might be here sooner rather than later.
