Powerful new AI & computer stuff that will impact us all more than you could imagine: Big Tech Innovations from IBM (USA)
- Artifical Intelligence (AI) -powered robot microscopes will help clean up the world’s water supplies. Problem solved 😊
- Crypto-anchors and blockchains to fight illegal copying / fraud
- AI bias will explode, but only unbiased AI will survive
- Quantum computing will move from the labs into the real world
Near-future predictions by Sam (Mogstad AS) based on
technology observations here & now
Mogstad AS predicts the following mega-trends which will soon change the world in which we live in and as we know it in almost-impossible-to-predict and in disruptive ways.
To business executives: Mind your cash flows, because their sources and sinks may change overnight in what we term disruptive ways and wipe your business off the map in less than a year
To government officials: Prepare for an old, shrinking, well-educated population living in the cities
To you as a consumer and fellow citizen: Take great care to stay relatively debt-free, understand and remind yourself that a housing mortgage isn’t a safe long investment but in reality a risky option written to you by the debt-issuer ,and it only has value for you as you are in the money, ie value of the house exceeds your debt-level / “gearing-ratio”.
Take an education, learn something useful for society, and make sure you can perform real work and contribute with something relatively unique in order to compete in the job market.
Regarding things you own, be it life necessities or luxury goods, make sure the book value in your family’s balance sheet ≈ economic value in real terms, measured by the net present value of the expected future cash-flows generated by the asset. Preferably, it should be owned by yourself
so that you can take control of the money.
ENERGY IS THE ONE SINGLE COMFORT ITEM WHICH IS MOST CLOSELY LINKED AND CO-RELATED TO HUMAN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN A BROAD SENSE. WITHOUT ENERGY NO CIVILIZATION. IE, CHEAP, GREEN AND AVAILABLE ENERGY IN UBIQUITOUS FASHION WILL HAVE A MAJOR IMPACT
ELECTRICITY FROM SOLAR WILL REPLACE ALL OTHER SOURCES AND OIL WIL SIMPLY VANISH. THAT IS ALSO TRUE FOR THE (STUPID, EXPENSIVE) WINDMILLS WE PUT UP IN NORWAY THESE DAYS
ELECTRICITY WILL BE SO AVAILABLE AND CHEAP THAT IT IS ABUNDANT AND YOU CAN STORE IT AT VIRTUALLY NO COST IN YOU GARAGE OR UNDER THE KITCHEN SINK IN A BATTERY, MUCH LIKE WHAT WE DO TODAY WITH DATA ON HARD-DISKS OR IN THE CLOUD. AT VIRTUALLY NO COST. A HUGE LEAP FORWARD FOR MANKIND AND ESPECIALLY WOMEN IN DEVELOPING SUBURBAN COUNTRY-SIDES
CLEAN AVAILABLE WATER IS KEY. TAKE A MASTER OR PHD IN CHEMISTRY AND WATER SCIENCES, SOLVE THE PUZZLE, AND YOU WILL NOT ONLY BE RICH, BUT YOU WILL SOLVE ONE OF SOCIETY’S MOST PRESSING CHALLENGES.
PEACE, EDUCATION, SOLID INSTITUTIONS AND DEMOCRACY IS FUNDAMENTAL TO HUMAN DEVELOPMENT. NORWAY IS BUSY SAVING THE WORLD. LET US HOPE THE CORONA CRISIS STOPS MORE NORWEGIAN INITIATIVES, BECAUSE THEY SIMPLY DON’T WORK AND ONLY MAKE MATTERS WORSE, REF EG AFGHANISTAN
UBIQUITOUS COMPUTING AND NETWORKING ACROSS THE GLOBE
CHEAP GREEN AND COMFORTABLE TRANSPORTATION IN CITIES
THE WORLD POPULATION WILL PEAK AT APPROXIMATELY 9 BN AND MOST PEOPLE WILL LIVE IN CITIES. WE WILL GO FROM 200 COUNTRIES TODAY TO 600 MEGA CITIES TOMORROW. KEEPING THEM NICE, TIDY, CLEAN AND NOT TOO CROWDED WHILE AT THE SAME TIME OFFERING PEOPLE A DECENT STANDARD OF LIVING IS KEY. A COLLAPSE IN KWH PER CAPITA WILL FOLLOW AUTOMATICALLY
BIO AND COMPUTERS WILL MERGE AND THE LAST 100% BIO HUMAN GENERATION WILL BE BORN IN LESS THAN 100 YEARS FROM NOW. AVERAGE AGE HAS THE POTENTIAL TO QUADRUPLE AS OUR BODIES ARE MAINLY SILICON WHICH DOES NOT DEGRADE AS HUMAN BIO TISSUE DOES
ROTOTS WHICH MOVE LIKE SUPER-HUMANS WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ULTRA BRAINS WILL NOT OVERTAKE HUMANS, AS THEY BY DEF ARE DETERMINISTIC AND DOES NOT HAVE FEELINGS, BUT THE AI ROBOTS WILL TAKE OVER MOST OF HUMAN PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES
INSIGHTS INTO GENES AND BIO WILL TURN THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY UP SIDE DOWN
TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS WILL SIMPLY NEVER HAPPEN BECAUSE OF NEW CAR AND TRANSPORTATION TECHNOLOGIES
QUEUES AND TRAFFIC JAMS WILL VANISH DUE TO NEW TECH WHICH KEEPS A CONSTANT SPEED AND A FIXED DISTANCE TO OTHER CARS AROUND THE VEHICLE YOUR ARE DRIVING
MENTAL DISTURBANCES AND ILLNESSES LIKE MOGSTAD AS’ EMPLOYEES’ DR NAPPY’S (schizophrenia) AND SAM’S (BIPOLAR DISORDER TYPE #1) WILL BE ABOLISHED
AND SO WILL MOST HUMAN ILLNESSES, CANCER AND HEART DECEASES INCLUDED
YOUNG PEOPLE FLOCK AROUND THE CITIES AND WANT CITY THINGS FOR THEIR
URBAN CITY LIFESTYLES.
THAT DOES AUTOMATICALLY EXCLUDE PRIVATE CAR OWNERSHIP, WHICH WILL SIMPLY GO AWAY DUE TO EXCESSIVE COSTS, JUST LIKE SPOTIFY REPLACED PRIVATE RECORD COLLECTIONS IN A FEW YEARS DURING THE 2010s
THE REUSE ECONOMY WILL THRIVE AS “THINGS” GET SO AVAILABLE, ABUNDANT AND
AFFORDABLE/ CHEAP THAT THEY SIMPLY LOOSE INTEREST
STATUS WILL BE LINKED TO EDUCATION, SOCIAL STATUS, CULTURE, MUSIC AND ARTS,
LIKE THE OLD-SCHOOL HOUSE OF HABSBURG*
URBAN FARMING WILL ALLOW US TO GROW FOOD ON FACADES AND BUILDING IN THE CITIES
And so on ……v 😊
- The House of Habsburg; alternatively spelled Hapsburg in English), also officially called the House of Austria (Haus Österreich in German, Casa de Austria in Spanish),|] was one of the most influential and distinguished royal houses of Europe. The throne of the Holy Roman Empire was continuously occupied by the Habsburgs from 1438 until their extinction in the male line in 1740. The house also produced kings of Bohemia, Hungary, Croatia, Galicia, Portugal and Spain with their respective colonies, as well as rulers of several principalities in the Netherlands and Italy. From the 16th century, following the reign of Charles V, the dynasty was split between its Austrian and Spanish branches. Although they ruled distinct territories, they nevertheless maintained close relations and frequently intermarried.
