Another 2050 Prediction


Another prediction for how artificial intelligence will impact 2050: People won't own cars.

Most people expect that in 35 years, cars will be fully automated and able to drive themselves. Yay! Driving will become much safer, and I won't have to worry about my grandchildren learning to drive. The time people currently spend moving from one place to another will be put to better use, and we'll all be nicer people for not having not had to deal with traffic and road rage on a daily basis.

Self-driving cars are inevitable. Their impact on our world, however, is less obvious. My guess is that by combining self-driving cars with the emerging "sharing economy," we will create a world where individuals can request a ride, get picked up immediately after their request, and be driven directly to their destination in comfort.

Self-driving cars + Uber + Zipcar = On-demand transportation

On-demand transportation will allow people to leave from wherever they are, whenever they want, and go wherever they want privately, just like personal car ownership does right now. But it will be much cheaper than car ownership because the vehicles will be used much more efficiently.

Self-driven "shared" cars will rarely be idle. Even during off hours when human demand for transportation is low, we will develop a container-style approach to the transportation of goods that will allow cars to move packages from one place to another. And when cars are not in use they can be packed in tightly to parking garages, since people will not need to navigate the garage and individual vehicles are interchangeable. Street parking will become a thing of the past, and we will use that extra space to increase the size of our sidewalks to make cities more pedestrian friendly.

  2. The first hybrid cars appeared in 1998, 17 years later, the share on the road is still minuscule. A hybrid system adds merely 4-5K on top of a regular car. There is no self-driving car yet, and the one that is kinda self-driving costs 150K (it apparently can't drive everywhere and requires massive training data collected by humans). My prognosis is that in 35 years, we will see self-driving cars only on highways (in particular trucks), but not on regular streets.

  3. As we are moving forward to the future, our effort for the work become less. The advancement in the cars in 2050, will be the more innovative. We will find a great innovation for the cars in coming years. The rates also become less. The size and models will be different. I am eager to see how the cars will be in another coming years. I also got some information : collegeresearchpapersonline blogspot. Truly the things will become easy for everyone. This will be the great achievement in the science world.

    It has a formal tone and style, but it is not complex and does not require the use of long sentences and complicated vocabulary.
    Each subject discipline will have certain writing conventions, vocabulary and types of discourse that you will become familiar with over the course of your degree. However, there are some general characteristics of academic writing that are relevant across all disciplines.

  11. Basically, the technology essay replicates the structure and the main principles of a standard essay with a few peculiarities of its own.
    We offer you to study the procedure of writing the technology essays on a concrete example. Let's suggest your topic sounds something like "Influence of Modern Technology on Society". The goal of your custom essay is to describe and discuss complicated relations between technology and society. You are to clarify how some particular technology affects people. You are free to illustrate the influence on any sphere of modern life that your technology has affected most.

    First of all, people describe technology as ever-changing. Today new innovations become obsolete fast. People have become increasingly competitive and every year, new ideas and technologies are released to challenge the ones in the market. In a few months, a piece of technology can be released to the market and almost immediately rival companies will as well release theirs. Technological ideas keep getting unleashed as the world becomes more involved in exploring and utilizing the resources nature provides. Nothing seems to survive this fast paced world and unless one maintains the pace and moves with the wave, they get left behind..Read more about technology at Transport Technology
