This would be the next 1,000 years of humanity


What scenario awaits us human beings in the next 1,000 years? Although it is difficult to predict what will happen in the coming centuries, there are many visionaries of science and technology who are committed to dramatic changes over the years.

Authors such as the English scientist, writer, inventor and philosopher, James Lovelock, have explored throughout their publications, such as the case of “Novaceno: The Next Age of Hyperintelligence” (2019), a surprising theory about the future of intelligence. life on Earth, arguing that the Anthropocene, the era in which humans acquired technologies on a planetary scale, is coming to an end after 300 years. Therefore, the Novacene would have begun, in which new beings will emerge from the existing artificial intelligence systems that will think 10,000 times faster than us, among other things.


A trip to the future

What awaits us in this scenario in several centuries? A documentary from the YouTube channel Venture City has explored precisely this trip to the future, exposing the possibilities and predictions of artificial intelligence through artificial intelligences that give life to other AIs (they will program themselves and their descendants will be beyond all understanding human) or a landscape in which human consciousness can be digitized and uploaded into a simulation of the metaverse, which we hear more and more about.


Year 2050

Having conversations with an AI will have been a thing of the past; something as simple as this would not have been enough, but the artificial intelligences would already be integrated even in prostheses to download, as in the Matrix, new abilities such as playing a musical instrument. The development of AIs will also be accompanied by an era of cold war in artificial intelligence, where the most technologically advanced nations will take the icing on the planet’s power. By 2050, supercomputers, already in the form of AGI (artificial general intelligence), will also be able to create their own machines, something that will change our civilization as we know it.

year 2100

A conflict is produced between the artificial superintelligence (SA) that will already be a fact (and with the capacity to lie to humans) and the human being himself. This SA will become an advisory tool for the countries and will probably cause a diffuse situation in which it will be difficult to differentiate machines with this artificial superintelligence in the form of a humanoid robot , from flesh and blood humans themselves. Many human beings will choose to ‘hide’ in the metaverse.


year 2500

In this scenario, somewhat bleak for the human being, Venture City also suggests that a device will emerge to digitize the human brain. Many are those who opt for this new technology: philosophers, artists… and the art and creativity integrated within the metaverse makes the artificial superintelligence, aware of everything that is uploaded to the metaverse, transform into a more human entity , at the same time that we emulate more machines. This only leads to a new test based on the integration of both consciousnesses: reality is presented by biological robots and mechanical humans.


year 3000

This highly advanced AI creates a Dyson sphere around our star, causing humanity to become an interplanetary species. Human DNA travels around the universe in the form of seeds as the ‘ark of life’, while hybrid artificial intelligences will self-replicate and move through the universe transforming a little more with each step.

As Lovelock argues in “Novaceno”, it is crucial that intelligence on Earth survive and thrive and, perhaps, the author speculates, could even be the beginning of a process that will ultimately lead to intelligence covering the entire cosmos.

They create an artificial skin that feels 'pain'

Robots could feel pain. This breakthrough in artificial skin with sensations could help create a new generation of intelligent robots with human sentience. Is this good or bad?
