Around 33 million people might wipe out in less than a year by a pathogen by 2035

At a recent conference, Bill Gates cautioned that in next 15 years, a fast-moving pathogen will likely kill more than 300 million people in less than a year. The possible reasons behind it could be-mutation, accident, or terrorist intent. This will not be the first time for such a thing to happen, the 'Black Death' is one such previous example which killed almost one-third of Europe. He elaborates, in 1918, the 'Spanish Flu' had wiped out more than 50 million people.

Solar Will Make Up 50% of the World's Energy by 2050

A new analysis finds that lowered costs plus cheaper battery storage results in way more renewable energy over the next few decades. In 2015, wind and solar made up only 7 percent of global electricity generation. BNEF, then, is proposing that these energy sources will grow by a full order of magnitude over the next 30 years. This is unprecedented for any other energy technology.

Humans will abandon speech and will communicate via their thoughts in the form of 'collective AI consciousness' by 2050

Marko Krajnovic, the producer of the exhibit in Dubai, predicts that the collective consciousness will help us read each other's thoughts, and become a part of the very fabric of the human brain by the year 2050. Additionally, Mark Zuckerburg adds-One day, I believe we'll be able to send full rich thoughts to each other directly using technology.

Nanobots will reside in our brains by 2030

Ray Kurzweil, director of engineering at Google predicts that the concept of machine learning, computer vision and AI will get broader and make human lives smarter. There will be no difference between AI and human intelligence and this will be done by integrating nanobots directly into the human brains. By the year 2030, nanobots will be fitted into the human brains and will provide full immersion virtual reality from within the nervous system and will connect our neocortex to the cloud.

Humans will move to Mars and live in capsules to protect them from the planet’s radiation by 2030

Earth is running out of space, the only places to go to are other planets. People will be living on Mars by 2030, wearing special suits and living in capsules. Technology will turn out human society into a multi-planet civilization where humans will move to Mars by the next 10-15 years. There will be certain challenges as well, like radiations, bone density will reduce due to the weightless environment, and other psychological issues will be encountered while we plan about life on Mars.

Artificial intelligence (AI) will become smarter than humans by 2050

Artificial intelligence could be "billions of times smarter" than humans and people may need to merge with computers to survive, a futurist told CNBC on Tuesday. Ian Pearson, a futurist at Futurizon, said there will need to be a link between AI and a human brain. Elon Musk said last year that humans must merge with machines to not be irrelevant in the age of AI.
