What technologies will be in 2023? This question is of interest to all people who want to keep abreast of events taking place in the world and keep up with modern trends. Below is a detailed description of everything that awaits us in the near future.
Today, it is impossible to imagine the life of modern people without the Internet: through the worldwide network, you can make purchases, pay for services, exchange information, learn the latest news, track events.
Firstly, last year, as part of the Starlink program developed by Elon Musk, sixty satellites were launched into the orbit of the planet, and in the future their total number is planned to increase to 12 thousand! This will make the Internet available in any even the most remote corners of the world, and without wires, but through portable receivers. By the way, the United States and Russia have similar projects, but it is not yet clear whether they will be implemented by 2023.
Secondly, in the foreseeable future, it will be possible to connect to the Internet not only electronic devices, but also various other things used in everyday life: goods in stores, clothes, personal hygiene items, household appliances, and so on. As a result, homes and even roads can be equipped with sensors connected to the worldwide network. This will make it possible to create a unified information and communication infrastructure for obtaining information about locations and the environment with almost all of its components.
Thirdly, for sure, from 2023, fifth-generation networks – 5G – will become the standard for Internet connection. Their pilot versions have already been launched in many large countries such as Switzerland, South Korea, and Russia. Huge sums have been invested in development, so a full and widespread implementation is likely to take place in the coming years (probably even in 2023). As a result, Internet users will receive high connection speeds up to 2Gbps, minimal delays (no longer than a millisecond), and reliable transmission.
Self-driving, driverless vehicles could become available as early as 2023. Today, many large companies are engaged in the development of such mechanisms, both specializing in the auto industry and those that have nothing to do with cars. These are Audi, General Motors, Toyota, Volkswagen, Tesla, as well as Hubert and Google. And even KamAZ has already presented the first prototype of a car with a serial truck base.
Self-driving cars may eventually replace standard human-driven vehicles over time. And they will undoubtedly affect the situation on the roads and road safety. Such machines are quite capable of ceasing to be just transport units: they will actively communicate and interact with each other, transmitting data on the movement parameters of neighboring cars and exchanging information.
Neurocomputer technologies are practically artificial intelligence synchronized with the human body. The so-called neural networks involve the introduction into the brain and the establishment of permanent and continuous connections with the outside world. Such an implantable human brain-computer interface will allow, first of all, to improve the functioning of the body, even in the presence of limited capabilities.
Neural networks can control prostheses using signals transmitted by the brain, as well as information received from external visual, auditory and sensory sensors. Such interfaces, which are used everywhere, are able to establish a contactless transmission of information from brain to brain. In addition, neurocomputer technologies will provide a smart quick search for any information without any additional devices, as well as all sorts of tips to simplify and optimize life.
New drugs and medical technologies
Developments in the field of pharmaceuticals and medicine are kept secret, but they are actively conducted in many countries. It is being developed by German scientists who have learned to recognize differences in the DNA of healthy and cancer cells, isolate “spoiled” proteins and report such markers to the immune system so that it launches a reaction to fight “enemies”. This innovative biotechnology is called “BioNTech”. And the first stages of trials involving people suffering from melanoma are already showing positive results: eight out of 13 people have improvements. Further studies are planned, covering already 1500 patients with different types of tumor neoplasms.
Interesting fact! In the United States, the first robotic pharmacists may appear as early as 2023, replacing conventional pharmacists in pharmacy chains.
Genetic engineering is also actively used in medicine, which will obviously change the world and the idea of many diseases of mankind. For example, in the UK, scientists have already received permission to precisely edit the DNA of embryos. It is proposed to isolate defective genes and make adjustments to the genome. As a result, only healthy, viable and hardy people should be born. And in China, experiments on genetic modification of embryos were carried out within the framework of the CRISPR/Cas9 technology: researchers have discovered the natural mechanism of DNA editing and are learning how to use it in practice.
Improvement of devices and technology
Every year, conventional devices become thinner and lighter. Today, ultra-thin and ultra-light TVs, tablets and smartphones are already on sale. But in the future, it is planned to develop TV screens that can be bent and even rolled into rolls. And, probably, phones that are worn on the arm and are thin and almost imperceptible bracelets will also become available very soon. While the configuration and interface are unknown, but perhaps with a single click, a hologram with a control menu will be created.
Quanta are the smallest indivisible particles that make up almost everything on our planet. And if the digital technology of quantum computing becomes available, it will significantly change lives. For example, modern methods of information encryption will become untenable and inefficient, the time for conducting large-scale research (including the genome of living beings and various complex phenomena) will be reduced, the management of complex mechanisms and processes will be simplified, depreciation and collapse of cryptocurrencies will occur.
Developments in the field of quantum technologies have been actively conducted for several years and have already borne fruit. So, Chinese scientists launched the first satellite with quantum communication, capable of transmitting data from orbit to Earth without intercepting the keys. And at the end of 2019, the two giants IBM and Google announced the successful completion of quantum computing. But so far there is no exact information about the creation of computers, although with a high probability they may appear just in 2023.
