Next Revolution is Here and It Will Target Every Human Being

The world is changing at an ever faster pace. This wasn’t always the case. Major discoveries (and life-changing ones at that) were well and far off at the dawn of the last century.

We take a look at some of those revolutionary discoveries below.

Major Discoveries From The Industrial Revolution

The first major change was steam engines. We embedded them in all sorts of different things and improved different industries as a result. This was back in 1800’s.

This was followed by electricity which revolutionized energy production and distribution. This change occurred in late 19th century to early 20th century.

Next big change was the invention of the computer and communication systems (internet). The computer systems were invented for a singular purpose which they outgrew and eventually became the backbone of the modern world today.

What has that got to do with us? Everything. We are at the stage where instead of changing how we do things, we will change ourselves.

Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of World Economic Forum adds,

One of the features of this fourth industrial revolution is that it doesn’t change what we’re doing but it changes us.

The above discoveries changed the course of human history as we knew it. And now its time that another revolution is on the horizon that promises to change how things are done.

Whats Next? Automation?

Automation is the name of the game. Robots are expected to enter mainstream industries in the coming years. It will not be just limited to them, it will change us as well with body augmentations designed to change the way we do things.

So what do you think? Which discovery had the biggest impact in our lives and why? What do you think will be the biggest game-changer in the future to come. Sound off in the comments below.

  • What do I think? I think it’s total bullocks. For one, automation is nothing new. It’s been an essential part in numerous industries and manufacturing processes for the past decade at least.

    Secondly, we’re still quite a ways off from actual human augmentation. And not just from a technical aspect, but social as well (think Deus Ex: Mankind Divided).

    What do I think is actually going to revolutionize our lives next? Artificial Intelligence. Or Machine Learning to be more specific. The tech has been in incubation for quite a while now, and we may soon start seeing it in practical applications such as self driving cars, medical diagnosis, stock market predictions etc.

    Seriously though, human augmentation? Where’d you come up with that crap? Sounds like some child’s fantasy at this point.

  • We’re living in the best century I think considering the availability of jobs and opportunities and growth of economical sectors, all around the world. Somebody may not agree but this is the best we can get out of it. We have to consider each and everything happening around in order to calculate the future of this technological world.

    • I agree with you. Probably in next century majority of people in the world will live in apocalyptic conditions. No jobs, water crises, less crops, super high inflation and more wars. I can see a steep decline in world population in next century because of more diseases and less fertility rate and a lot of wars.

      • I don’t know about the others but I look forward to less fertility rate. Something must be done to improve the traffic in Lahore.
