Global advertising and digital agency Dentsu Inc. (dentsu) predicts that technology will upgrade the lives of humans in the next decade, including brain chips and exoskeletons.
It looks at the ways the world could change in the next ten years and how these changes will impact brands. Their report, entitled “Revolution of Rising Expectations,” says that the trends from overcoming a seismic year will provide brands a roadmap for the next decade.
They looked into the continous rise of the synthetic society of people as humans increasingly incorporate the latest technology in their lives, suggesting that brain chips could someday be used to aid memory and exoskeletons to make people stronger and faster.
Timeline of Dentsu Prediction of Major Technological Events
According to MailOnline, the advertising company released a timeline of their prediction in the next decade that will significantly impact how humans live.
First, they predicted that in 2021, exoskeletons will be introduced to people with physical disabilities. While governments will begin punishing and fining social media firms that do not curb misinformation.
Then by 2021, Dentsu predicts that technology firms will start moving their workforce to a four-day working week. Additionally, the European Union will also roll out a tax on meat across all member states.
The year 2023 will be the year when virtual reality rehab clinics will open for the first time in Tokyo. Then by 2024, Elon Musk’s Neuralink will be the first brain-computer interface in a human. Then human-only skulls, like crafts and design, will become compulsory subjects in the school curriculum.
That year will also be the year when online retailer launches a global test, trace, and vaccination kit for future pandemics. In 2025, the extinction rebellion will become a trans-national mainstream political party.
By 2026, class-A drugs like MDMA and ketamine will be used widely to treat severe illnesses.
