Future of Technology
advancements that will prove to reshape the world as
we know it.
How it all started
Before moving forward, it is necessary to look
back and see how things started off in the first
place. Although the integrated circuit was
invented in 1959, it wasn’t until 1970 when the
world’s first mainstream microprocessor was
brought to light. The creation of the Intel 4004
Microprocessor was nothing short of a miracle.
This understaffed side project was led by a team
of only 4 engineers, who while being short on
cash had their eyes set on creating something
extraordinary. No doubt the invention of the
microprocessor has revolutionized the world,
allowing man to create machines which were
previously unimaginable.
Microprocessors of Today
The microprocessors of today are cutting edge
and include billions of transistors within them,
performing billions of instructions per second.
These processors are put in to state of the art
machinery allowing them to perform incredible
feats never before known to man.

Technologies of the Future
Elon Musk, One of the greatest business magnates
of our time, has founded numerous companies
which are breaking grounds in terms of
technological advancements. Here are some just to
name a few:
The electric automobile manufacturer is one of the only
independent automakers, and quickly rose to fame as
being one of the pioneering electric car producers. Their
first mass produced car, the Tesla Model S, a sleek
luxury sedan that was steeply priced yet highly sought
after as it provided power rivaling the fastest of gas
powered sports cars. Their next car, the Tesla Model 3,
a lower priced luxury sedan was the car for the masses,
becoming extremely popular among the general public.
Its introduction opened new avenues for people to delve
into the world of electric cars, with many vowing to never
go back to a gas powered car again. Many automakers
have followed suit and come out with electric vehicles of
their own, trying to take back some of the market being
dominated by tesla. With electric cars costing less to
operate overall, it is projected that by 2040 more than
half of the new cars will be electric. Many governments
are also incentivizing electric cars by providing tax
discounts on the purchase of every car.
different medical conditions, such as
paralysis, by allowing them to control
computers and mobile devices straight from
their brains. Elon Musk even went as far as
to say it could possibly enable telepathic
communications between the brain and
artificial intelligence.
Tesla is also famous for providing an “autopilot” feature
which can drive the car for you. While still being in its
initial stages, it is expected to become to the best selfdriving system on the market, allowing you to just sit
back and relax while the car does all the work for you.
The fantasy concept of thinking about something and it
simply happening right in front of you might not be a
fantasy after all. Neuralink is developing a brain implant
consisting of small thin wires that can connect with your
brain and detect the minute electrical pulses sent
throughout it. This will be used to treat people with
A visualization of Starlink satellites around the Earth
While it is estimated that around 50% of the
world’s population is deprived of an internet
connection, with the main culprit being lack
of coverage, the dream of having internet
regardless of your location might become a
reality sooner than you think. Once Starlink
becomes fully operational, it will be have the
ability to provide internet access from virtually
anywhere around the globe. It achieves this by
the help of thousands of small satellites all
connected together in low Earth orbit that will be
able to transmit internet signals down to the
planet. This will prove very beneficial, especially
to those living in rural areas whom seldom if ever
have the chance to access the internet.
A private aerospace manufacturer founded by
Elon Musk in the year 2002. SpaceX is innovating
the very concept of space flight itself. It
introduced the concept of reusable rockets by
being the first to ever successfully land the first
stage booster of their rocket Falcon 9 on land in
December of 2015. So far they have had a total
of 64 successful landings.
Two Falcon 9 first stage boosters landing together
SpaceX’s main goal is to make the human race
interplanetary by putting people on Mars, with
Musk saying he plans to achieve this by 2025.
They have already proven their worthiness by
sending a manned spacecraft to the International
Space Station in May of 2020. The Mars mission
will be a 6 month trip on the world’s most powerful
rocket, ‘Starship’. With the goal of setting a living,
breathing colony on Mars.
Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence- The ability of a computer to
have the thought process resembling that of a
human being and being able to perform tasks
similar to that. AI has been around since the
invention of computer itself, but recently it has seen
a major boom in popularity. We can see examples
of AI in our own daily lives in the form of assistants
available in our smartphones, Google assistant for
android and Siri for IPhones. Further uses of AI can
be seen in the eCommerce sector, where it can
assist shoppers in finding products they would
most likely be interested in. Moreover, utilization of
AI can be seen in healthcare industry by taking
decisions to aid medical staff in difficult situations.
AI can gather large amounts of data, find patterns
and predict outcomes that may be too difficult for
the Human eye to spot. There are countless ways,
with these being just a few in which AI can shape
our lives in the present and the coming future.
