As the AI wave sweeps across every sector, many regions at a time, the indolent and unbothered do themselves disservice. As mankind prepares to step into an entirely new phase of existence and future, technology is writing the very codes that will constitute the language of that future.

30 years from now, the world will be a radically different place to live in. Cars will be driverless. Flying cars will exist. Robots will live among us. Every device on earth will be connected to through a digital ecosystem that attaches some smartness to them. Put simply, your refrigerator will acquire ‘mind’ of its own, detecting when your banana supply is short and itself place the order. Your TV will detect faults on its own and send messages to its maker while you stare at its blurring lines in wonder. The internet will connect every device, and every device will be connected together in one digital embrace.

On the positive side, things will become easier. Life will become better, as you can do from the comfort of your toilet seat, what hitherto required traveling to be achieved. While you recline peacefully on your sofa, your devices are sorting themselves out. All the research going on in this field will lead to groundbreaking discoveries and landmark inventions which will solve (once and for all) centuries-long problems related to health, poverty, inequality, crime, bad governance, lack of water, etc.

The future looms ahead, bright and glorious.

It also stares assumes a grotesque stand with a disturbingly long list of jobs to be impacted. Increased technology and civilization means that man moves to the next phase of his existence. Thousands will lose their jobs at first. Then, millions others will follow. That’s millions of jobs across many sectors. Businesses will fold up, and ventures will lock up their offices. Not even the smart will survive.

Only the prepared will.

And that’s the great part.

Preparedness is the superpower of the future.       

The future approaches. Whether we want it or not. We only do disservice to ourselves if we continue to act oblivious to the imminent.

Are you prepared?
