It’s almost the end of the decade and the once futuresque year 2020 is rapidly approaching. What do you hope to see created, developed or implemented in this new decade?

2020 is a special milestone for me. My New Years and New Decades resolution is to QUIT futurism. This obsession/interest was always present and its earliest iteration came from my fascination with the gadgets in Spy Kids.

In 2011, I really kicked it into gear and it became my main squeeze alongside Star Wars. In 2016, it started distracting me for life. I need to quit it. I have read everything I can about futurism and sci fi. It should be over.

So as we ring in the 20’s, I ask for your final thoughts on what you want

1. Anti-aging, anti-aging, anti-aging!

2. Enhanced intelligence gene therapy

3. Cure for cancer

4. Cure for heart disease

 

Pretty much more life and higher standards of living while alive.

I hope human level Ai will occur in 2029 like ray predicted and quickly bring in utopia for all in the following years.

 

I mostly doubt this although I am counting down the seconds to jan 1st 2030 regardless (we have less than 318 million seconds to go)

 

 

 

What I must say is good is this coming decade will be the first decade where AI is considered feasible in all previous decades including this one no one relevant really thought Ai had a chance of occurring but in this decade most people think its actually possible.

An end to our current, self-destructive, moronic culture and politics, and the return of intelligent, grown-up debates, with more focus on truth and facts.

I, too, dream of marrying an elven princess and taming a unicorn.

While I do believe that in 10 years time AI will have taken some monumental steps forward, I hold massive concerns on how utopian the things to come will be. Do bear in mind that some multi-billion dollar corporation or the Chinese are the most likely to come up with AGI, because let's be honest here, they're the only ones with the resources and drive to actually accomplish something. And as far as I know, the Chinese government is pouring much more effort into AI than anyone else, and we all know what's happening in China right now.

 

Under capitalism and the current trend of the growing divide between the rich and the poor, there are fewer ways this can result in utopia, and far more possibilities of dystopian proportions. We can only hope things go well.

I think there’s a chance that popular support for the monarchy in Britain may face a gradual decline, especially after this fiasco with Prince Andrew and because of Brexit, there will be increasing resentment towards people with wealth and power from the common folk.

Also, I hope that the blue line will start rising again, like in the 50s or 60s.

supermarkets without cashiers, no standing in lines, no waiting - yes.

 

AGI is the wrong concept, so it never happens. 
IQ rates are dropping in many developed countries and the trend will continue.
Fertility rate is in steady decline and the trend will continue.

The next economic crisis will be epic.
We will not deliver people to Mars in 2029.
No Moon base in 2029.

Futuretimeline will survive.  :umnik:

Agree

 

 

 

AGI is the wrong concept, so it never happens. 

I agree that we won't invent an AGI during the 2020s. 

 

 

 

IQ rates are dropping in many developed countries and the trend will continue.

True, but as countries like China and India improve, more of their high-IQ people who would otherwise be wasting their talents working in factories or landfills will have opportunities to work in tech companies and labs, which in turn will help the whole world. This will more than compensate for any IQ decrease in the West (which I'm dubious of anyway). 

 

 

 

Fertility rate is in steady decline and the trend will continue.

Agree, and there are upsides to this. 

 

 

 

The next economic crisis will be epic.

Who can say? Who in 2007 knew that the next recession was going to be so epic? 

 

 

 

We will not deliver people to Mars in 2029.

Agree

 

 

 

No Moon base in 2029.

67% chance this is right. 

 

 

 

Futuretimeline will survive.  

I hope so.

funk, a reduction in technological breakthroughs may be due to the gradual aging of generation X.
Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, Larry Ellison, Googler's  and others are loosing steam. Elon Musk still has a decade at best.

Where are the new leaders and breakthrough companies?

All are focused on data manipulation. Some of them are just scammers. Do we have a global vision for the future? Singularity? Nobody talks about it anymore.

 

No visionaries, no geniuses means a bleak future. China and India hardly able to produce people who dare to change the world. Especially when it comes to communist China.

Somehow, people think that technological progress is automaticThis is far from the truth.

"What do you hope to see in this decade?"

 

Only one thing, to be honest. I hope to see the victorious end of the current cold war. I hope to personally withness the triumph of justice. I want to experience the same feeling our grandfathers felt in May 1945. And anyone who harmed us, anyone who was spreading lies and slander, anyone who dared to spit in the face of my people - I want them all lying in the mud, broken and humiliated, bleeding and begging for mercy.

 

That's my biggest desire. Compared to this all the rest, like faster computers and new shiny gadgets, is irrelevant... and if Russia will lose the cold war and will be destroyed by triumphant "world community" (that is, alas, quite possible) then the matters like global warming will be, too, completely irrelevant in my eyes.

Nobody is spitting in the face of Russians.  They do, however, roll their eyes at Oligarch and Kremlin-led hacking, assassinations, invasions, election interference, and so on. 

 

Russia's recent financial troubles appear to mostly be due to sanctions (Crimea) and fracking.  U.S. fracking posed a threat to OPEC, so in 2014 Saudi Arabia urged other OPEC countries to increase production to smother it (send fracking companies into financial ruin)  At the same time, oil consumption fell; and the result was a dramatic fall in the price of oil.  This had a huge effect on oil-producing countries like Russia and Venezuela.  

 

Oil may rise again to super-high price levels, which would push the Russian economy way, way up... well, so long as the wealth isn't only held by a very few Russians (Oligarchs) and invested exclusively outside Russia.

It would be great if in 2020 people would think about how the accumulated scientific potential could be used for the constructive development of mankind, not for the creation of weapons. I would like to see a peaceful and prosperous society where technology development serves the people.
