Digital people, underground cities and virtual schools: what life on Earth will be like in 2100
By the end of this century, life on planet Earth may change radically. In particular, people will move to underground cities, and artificial intelligence will play a crucial role.
This is reported by DailyMail with reference to industry experts. They believe that by 2100, people's lives will not only be intertwined with technology, but will be guided, shaped, and mentored by it.
AI robots, which in those days will probably be called digital humans, will live alongside us and play extremely important roles in social life. They will not be just assistants, but will be smart enough to be companions for people, work as teachers, or perform highly complex surgical operations.
Such digital people will be completely independent and will become part of everyday life.
Experts warn that only the ability of people to adapt to the new realities of life with humanoid robots will allow humanity not to turn into an isolated race that is self-absorbed.
Experts believe that in addition to digital people, there will be "mentors" - artificial intelligence that will accompany each person, helping them to make decisions, including what profession to choose.
AI mentors will be so powerful that they will process the infinite possibilities of each choice in an instant. So their recommendations will always be based on a huge amount of data.
Experts predict that by 2100, there will be a lack of space on the Earth's surface, so underground cities will appear that will be dug by robots.
Augmented reality will be used to design these cities, and millions of robots no more than a meter long will do the rest of the work. All of them, of course, will be controlled by artificial intelligence.
It's worth noting that Mexico is already trying to implement something similar. They are developing the Earthscraper project, a 65-story inverted pyramid inspired by the Aztec pyramids that should help solve the problem of lack of space in the center of Mexico City.
The global temperature rise will also contribute to the resettlement of people underground, as OBOZ.UA has already reported earlier.
Cameras will protect video from dipfakes
Manufacturers of cameras and video cameras (and other recording devices) will start adding digital watermarks to help people trust what they see. This will be necessary as fakes become more common and impossible to distinguish from the real thing. This will apply to photos, videos, and voice recordings of people.
Virtual schools with avatars for children
It is expected that children's education will be provided by artificial intelligence "tutors", just like adults. They will conduct lessons in virtual reality, where children will travel not only in space but also in time.
Children will take virtual space elevators to learn about astrophysics, travel through time in live history lessons, and communicate with artificial intelligence to get a personalized learning experience.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, scientists have shown what a woman of the future living in 3000 will look like.
