Future Technology
In hundreds of years from now if humans start exploring space and found a planet with indigenous humanoids that hasn't discovered the wheel. If we went down to visit and interact with them. Would they not honor us as gods?
When we left would a not write stories about us? What if some of us stayed behind and went to different parts of that world with modern-day medicines curing diseases. Would they not call us miracle workers and maybe write Bibles about us?

A new study finds that by 2050, the dead will outnumber the living on Facebook. Here’s how the company is designing user experiences to face the billions of dead users to come.fb

By 2050, the dead will outnumber the living on Facebook. That’s a conservative estimate, according to a study published by researchers at the Oxford Internet Institute, which aimed to estimate just how many profiles on the platform will belong to people who have died, before the end of the century. Based on projections of Facebook’s number of users growing 13% every year, they calculate that by 2100, there could be more than 4.9 billion dead profiles on the platform.
For Carl Ohman, a graduate student at the Oxford Internet Institute who co-authored the study, the exactness of the numbers is besides the point—more importantly, we need to make decisions as a society, now, about how a private company should handle what will become an unprecedented compilation of human activity. Currently, Facebook says its memorialized profiles — what Facebook calls a dead user’s profile that has officially been converted into an interface for remembering his or her life — number in the hundreds of thousands.

Following his research into speech signal processing for DARPA’s RATS program, Dr. Nima Mesgarani of Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute and fellow researchers announce that a brain-computer interface (BCI) has been used to turn brainwave patterns into speech with the help of a speech synthesizer.

 

 
UK experts have helped develop the world’s most advanced bionic hand.
The hand offers a greater degree of sensitivity combined with a fully rechargeable battery, scientists say.
It is also the first of its kind to be suitable for people who have had an amputation below the elbow.
Previous bionic hands have sometimes relied on a large computer which the recipient needed to carry in a backpack.
But the latest design has all these elements incorporated into the hand.

Over the last few decades, the unprecedented pace of technological progress has allowed us to upgrade and modernize much of our infrastructure and solve many long-standing logistical problems. For example, Babylon Health’s AI-driven smartphone app is helping assess and prioritize 1.2 million patients in North London, electronic transfers allow us to instantly send money nearly anywhere in the world, and, over the last 20 years, GPS has revolutionized  how we navigate, how we track and ship goods, and how we regulate traffic.

However, exponential growth comes with its own set of hurdles that must be navigated. The foremost issue is that it’s exceedingly difficult to predict how various technologies will evolve. As a result, it becomes challenging to plan for the future and ensure that the necessary safety features are in place.
