In the year 2525…

So what then, will the year 2025 look like? Stay tuned - it is almost here. My only advice is this - read the tech blogs. There is much to learn there. The future is not yet here, but is coming at breakneck speed. Will our future be good or bad? I don't know. Let me ask Alexa or Siri.

Who of my age does not remember this song by Zager and Evans? "In the year 2525, if man is still alive, if woman can survive, they may find..." I can sing this song in my head. Yes, I am a child of the 60's, but not a victim. I made it through that period, and then grew up. But, the year 2525 is now not the issue. It is the year 2025. And it is coming fast.
What does all this mean? Read the Chinese plan for the future. Especially in regards to AI. They are going to try an capture this world market. It will happen in three stages. First, get positioned in the AI field. Second, in 2025, be prepared for a HUGE breakthrough. Third, by 2030, they will be in the driver's seat for this huge new technology.
I have addressed this before. 2025 is the year most technologists and futurists believe will be a "bell weather" event. It seems as if the Chinese believe this date also. Why then, is this year so relevant? Futurists like Elon Musk, who understand AI, is scared to death by the rapid advancement of this technology. Why? He like others, believe that AI does not "think" like humans do. To protect us from a futuristic "hell", Musk wants the US to put restrictions on the development of AI. Why? To control it before it is 1,000,000 times (or mores), smarter than humans are. But what about the Chinese?
What do we do to not only develop this new technology which will change the world? Contain it so it changes the world, and does not control the world. The nexus is coming - and coming fast. It will be the joining of new developments in nanotechnology, robotics, AI, and others yet discovered. They will make our world look like something much different than we see today.
In the old days, we could say - "Whatever - our kids can take care of that." Today we can't say that. 2025 is only 7 years away. Lord be willing the creek don't rise, most of use will still be here in 2025. And we need to understand what is coming.
For example, Putin informed us that he now has missiles so fast, so stealthy, they can escape counter measures. Big whoop. By 2025, all missiles (if we still use them) will be hyper-sonic. And we will have airborne lasers which will shoot down anything in the sky, hyper-sonic or otherwise. In other words, by 2025 nuclear war via ICBM might be obsolete.
So what then, will the year 2025 look like? Stay tuned - it is almost here. My only advice is this - read the tech blogs. There is much to learn there. The future is not yet here, but is coming at breakneck speed. Will our future be good or bad? I don't know. Let me ask Alexa or Siri.
