The future
[FONT=&quot] [FONT=&quot]The FUTURE is approaching faster than one can handle....![FONT=&quot]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]
What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10 years and, most people won't see it coming. [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]
Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on film again?[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore's law. So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a time, before it became way superior and became mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen again with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3Dprinting, agriculture and jobs. Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution. Welcome to the Exponential Age . [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Software[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Uber [/FONT][FONT=&quot]is just a software tool, they don't own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Airbnb[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don't own any properties. [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Artificial Intelligence[/FONT][FONT=&quot]: Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world . This year, a computer beat the best Go-player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected. [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]In the US , young lawyers already don't get jobs. Because of IBM's Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]So if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% less lawyers in the future, only specialists will remain.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Watson[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, its 4 times more accurate than human nurses.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Facebook [/FONT][FONT=&quot]now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans. (NEVER!/Albert)[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Autonomous cars[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]: In 2018 the first self-driving cars will appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted. You don't want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Our kids will never get a driver's licence and will never own a car. [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that. We can transform former parking spaces into parks.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]1.2[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now have one accident every 60,000 miles (100,000 km), with autonomous driving that will drop to 1 accident in 6million miles (10 million km). That will save a million lives each year.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Most car companies will probably become bankrupt[/FONT][FONT=&quot]. Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; are completely terrified of Tesla.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Insurance companies[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]will have massive trouble because without accidents, the insurance will become 100x cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Real estate[/FONT][FONT=&quot] will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Electric cars will become mainstream about 2020 Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean[/FONT][FONT=&quot]: Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30years, but you can now see the burgeoning impact.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil. Energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar installations, but that can't last. Technology will take care of that strategy.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water. Desalination of salt water now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter (@ 0.25 cents). We don't have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water. Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year. There are companies who will build a medical device (called the "Tricorder" from Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample and you breathe into it.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]It then analyses 54 bio-markers that will identify nearly any disease.. It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class medical analysis, nearly for free Goodbye, medical establishment.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]3[/FONT][FONT=&quot]D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it became 100 times faster. All major shoe companies have already started 3D printing shoes.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Some spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports. The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]At the end of this year, new smart phones will have 3D scanning possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]In China, they already 3D printed and built a complete 6-story office building. By 2027, 10% of everything that's being produced will be 3D printed. [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Business opportunities[/FONT][FONT=&quot]: If you think of a niche you want to go in, first ask yourself: "In the future, do I think we will have that?" and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner? [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]If it doesn't work with your phone, forget the idea. And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st century.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Work[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough new jobs in such a short time. This will require a rethink on wealth distribution. [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]

[FONT=&quot] Well roger me senseless with a USB stick....

Beg's a very serious question, which I & no doubt many other's have been asking ourselves for a while now.....

Just because we have found the technology to do X,Y or Z, shouldn't mean that we automatically do it, just because we can, does it?

A bit like the Ethical dilemmas facing Genetics ... just because we can ,do we ?

We used to do "Hey Joe" (not that hard to play really ) and the drummer wanted us to do "Stone free" the reverse ....it took me more than 6 weeks to learn as you sing differently than your guitar strokes (like patting your head and rubbing your tummy then reversing it quickly)
Anyway we practised it twice fully then he changed his mind and didn't want us to play it

John Parker the bass player asked me one day if we could do "The wind cries Mary"...I said yes, I'll learn it , he then said sheepishly "Err....can I play lead and sing". I had never associated him with lead guitar , but we swapped guitars and he aready knew the lead bit so taught me the bass part .......I used to announce that song with "And now I'd like you to meet our Other lead guitarist"

A very good prog on 5 last night regarding Adele Atkins , her voice and her music structure.

Amazingly her chord structures and progressions often include a d flat and the harmonically compatible a flat.

She obviously writes for her voice that carries a very strong melody.

I was amazed at the complexity of her music and the contrapuntal rhythms involved.

clearly a voice for today and the future , if she so chooses.

I can see her going off on a jazz bent , and think she would be amazing.

As for Hendrix , the man invented pyrotechnics alloyed with soul.

Ha Ha ,very good. Going back farther to 1960 ,my Buddy ( now a famous guitarist ) spent all week learning the lead in Living Doll .When we went to record it. ,it turns out he learnt it in E ( song is in A ) .We had to go ahead in the lower key ,which sounded awful.I still remind him now and then.

Why do I get the funny feeling that the future gets closer every day


I didn't know where to post this one but this is probably as good a place as any...

It makes you wonder how patents will hold up when you can scan and 3D print objects which are patented.

Agree with all you say, and yet i cannot take to her voice, talented Lady that she is.
Jimi ? top top man, now and future.
