Bill Gates, who authored such predictions of the future as the dominant role of smartphones and social networks, made the next predictions for the next century. We will tell about them in this issue.
Let’s start with the bad news for low-skilled staff. In the next 20 years, its functions will be completely handed over to robots, while at the same time, it’s naturally about developing countries, not third world countries, where manual labor will remain an important part of the economy for a long time. At the same time, back in February 2017, Bill Gates proposed to take income tax from robots in order to let this money on the so-called unconditional income of people. This is a certain amount that will be paid monthly by the state to each of its residents.
Children’s spinal paralysis or polio by 2019 will be history. Back in the 80s of the last century, more than 400 children per year fell ill with it, but thanks to the development of vaccination, this figure was reduced by more than 10 times. In the near future, humanity will completely destroy this disease, as, for example, smallpox, which has been completely erased from the face of the Earth.
The most terrible milestone in the development of terrorism on the planet are biotechnology. Already, deadly microorganisms are being developed that will be transmitted by airborne droplets, including viruses of synthetic smallpox and superfluenza, which will be much stronger than many of the available vaccines among residents of third world countries.
A huge number of people on Earth still do not have full access to electricity, due to the absence of its hydrocarbon sources. But according to Gates, over the next 15 years, wind and solar sources will provide the necessary energy for most of the planet, which will give a serious impetus to the economic development of many countries.
In conclusion, in the next twenty years, it will be possible to completely eradicate poverty and hunger in most countries of the world. Every year tens of billions are sent to help poor countries, and the development of agrarian technology makes it possible to grow good crops even on those lands where it was previously impossible.
