The recent fifty-year-old footage of the Apollo 11 moon landings offered a window in a world that seems as alien as the surface of the satellite. But what will life be like in another 50 years, when we’re looking back at news footage of Trump et al?
According to forex trading experts IG by 2069:
- Thought-powered technology will allow traders to make decisions with their minds
- AI assistants will overtake human beings and provide instant analysis to fuel trades
- Cryptocurrencies will dominate – replacing fiat currencies – and blockchain networks will replace exchanges
- 3D ‘trading rooms’ will be launched by traders on smartphone
IG’s Future of Trading guide looks at current technological trends and scientific research to look at what looks possible in 50 years.
The guide states: “It might sound like the stuff of science fiction, but thought-powered trading, hardware-induced neural stimulation and brain-to-brain communication have already been subject to extensive research by academics and commercial entities.”
It also adds: “Though volumetric technology is still in the very early stages of development, the interest in holography and 3D viewing is not new. Researchers the world over are constantly working on new developments, which have generally been received positively by the public. Improvements in this field are helping to turn the potential of holography and augmented reality (AR) into marketable products.”
The research shows that IG’s futuristic vision isn’t at all far fetched. If we can put a man on the moon, who’d bet against thought-powered technology?
