I asked Chat GPT to predict what science fiction technologies may likely come true within the next 100 years, and it came up with 10 of them with ease. Check these 10 things out below:
- Quantum Computing: Quantum computers, with their potential to perform complex calculations at speeds unimaginable with today's computers, could revolutionize fields like cryptography, medicine, finance, and artificial intelligence.
- Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI): Advances in neuroscience and computer technology may enable direct communication between the human brain and computers, allowing for thought-controlled devices and new treatments for neurological conditions.
- Artificial General Intelligence (AGI): While we currently have artificial intelligence that excels in specific tasks, AGI would have the ability to understand, learn, and apply intelligence across a wide range of activities, much like a human being.
- Space Colonization: The colonization of other planets, such as Mars, or even the construction of habitable space stations, could be a response to Earth's overpopulation and resource depletion.
- Nanotechnology in Medicine: Nanobots could be used to perform surgeries at the cellular level, deliver drugs to specific cells, or even repair cell damage, revolutionizing healthcare.
- Fusion Power: If controlled fusion power is achieved, it could provide a nearly limitless source of clean energy, drastically reducing dependence on fossil fuels.
- Autonomous Vehicles and Advanced Transportation: Self-driving cars are already in development, but the next century may see a widespread network of autonomous vehicles, including flying cars and advanced public transit systems that could reduce traffic congestion and pollution.
- Genetic Engineering: Advanced genetic modification could lead to the elimination of many genetic diseases, designer babies, and perhaps even the creation of new species or the revival of extinct ones.
- Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) Integration: VR and AR could become so integrated into daily life that the virtual world becomes nearly indistinguishable from reality, affecting work, education, and entertainment.
- Teleportation: Although still highly theoretical and a staple of science fiction, research into quantum mechanics and entanglement might one day make the teleportation of information or even physical objects possible.
With the top 10 science fiction predictions above, I'm most interested in the Teleportation one. This reminds me of Star Trek a lot! Plus, who wouldn't want to travel anywhere on Earth or from Earth to a space colony within a second or two, right? Nonetheless, the list above if any becomes true will definitely change the world we know it today by a lot! Fusion power would allow humanity to have near-unlimited energy, and the applications that come out of this would be unimaginable. For example, fusion power could allow humanity to start research on folding space to create a warp technology just like how science fiction of this sort of thing is being entertained in movies like Star Trek. All I know is that if you want to fold space you need a humongous amount of energy, and I think fusion may help humanity in figuring out how to fold space.
