The Year 2300

Technowize Magazine - - Coverstory -

The en­tire So­lar Sys­tem is now trans­formed by an ever-ex­pand­ing orb of in­flu­ence by ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence. Ev­ery as­pect of world af­fairs on Earth is now con­trolled by an al­liance of su­per-in­tel­li­gent be­ings. global is­sues such as cli­mate change and never-end­ing wars can now be re­solved on timescales mea­sured in days, hours and even min­utes or less.

War, con­flict, poverty and deadly ill­nesses are now history. Knowl­edge is free to ev­ery­one – thus, fos­ter­ing a cul­ture of trust and co­op­er­a­tion be­tween men. Mean­while, tech­nol­ogy has made tra­di­tional forms of

em­ploy­ment ob­so­lete – leav­ing cit­i­zens of the world to pur­sue art, mu­sic, travel and other leisurely in­ter­ests, with­out need­ing to work.

Sci­en­tists and re­searchers will send a wide va­ri­ety of probes to neigh­bor­ing star sys­tems. The fastest probes will achieve a mea­gre of speed of light, re­quir­ing only a few years of travel time. Mean­while, Voy­ager mis­sions will take as many as thou­sands of years to reach the stars.

After jour­ney­ing for bil­lions of miles, the probes will suc­cess­fully reach their des­ti­na­tion. They’ll re­turn a trove of data and in­for­ma­tion on plan­ets and stars, pro­vid­ing a new per­spec­tive of hu­man­ity and its place in the uni­verse.

Plas­tics, tin cans and waste prod­ucts will have de­com­posed now. This will cause sig­nif­i­cant dam­age to the en­vi­ron­ment and Earth’s soil – in­clud­ing in­jur­ing mil­lions of fish, birds and other an­i­mals.

The planet will have a new­found

sense of clean­li­ness and or­der. The air on the planet would smell fresh and pure, as if they were in coun­try­side. Roads would be made of self-clean­ing, self-heal­ing ma­te­ri­als. Build­ing sur­faces, win­dows and roofs would be re­sis­tant to dirt, bac­te­ria, as well as van­dal­ism. Ev­ery­thing will look im­mac­u­late at all times. cities would fea­ture lush, greener­ies, and spec­tac­u­lar forms of sculp­tures.

Signs, Lamp posts, and other vis­ual clut­ter will have dis­ap­peared. Elec­tric­ity will be passed, wire­lessly, from one build­ing to an­other. Room tem­per­a­ture su­per­con­duc­tors will be im­planted into the ground. All ve­hi­cles on the planet, in­clud­ing fly­ing cars will drift silently.

Peo­ple would live in quiet ar­eas, like in ear­lier times. A lot of places will have ro­bots tend­ing to man­ual hu­man tasks and might at some point out­num­ber hu­mans. This might partly help us re­duce the world’s pop­u­la­tion. A lot of peo­ple will spend a ma­jor­ity of their time in vir­tual en­vi­ron­ments. Vir­tual re­al­ity will serve as man’s best friend, of­fer­ing knowl­edge, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and in­ter­ac­tion.

More and more peo­ple will ven­ture out­side and travel to dif­fer­ent parts of the world. All kinds of ser­vices will be avail­able on-de­mand – food, medicines, even body parts. So­cial gath­er­ings will have spe­cial seats re­served for peo­ple

us­ing vir­tual re­al­ity to at­tend the func­tions. crime will be al­most non-ex­is­tent, mean­while sur­veil­lance will be ev­ery­where record­ing ev­ery foot­step in de­tail. If ever a crime hap­pens, po­lice will be sum­moned in­stantly, with robotic po­lice of­fi­cers ap­pear­ing out of nowhere.
