The main trend that seems to be overtaking the future of technology is the rise of robotics and artificial intelligence. In the future, we can expect to see increasing levels of automation.
It's predicted that in 10 years time, we'll be able to control machines using eye movements, whilst also being able to ingest nano-sized robots to repair injuries within our bodies. In 20 years, predictive AI will have become the norm, analyzing elections, weather, geopolitical events, and other dynamic systems in real-time.
An energy revolution is also in the air for the future of technology. New carbon-breathing batteries that turn CO2 into generating electricity and diamond-based 'nuclear batteries' that run off of nuclear waste will be introduced onto the market.
Solar power will also become cheaper as cells operate at near 100% efficiency, and commercial fusion power will be available by 2044. New technologies to combat climate change will emerge. Techniques such as geoengineering with calcite aerosols and carbon sequestration will become popular.
