The future of telecommunications technologies

The evolution of AI-based network architectures alongside with advanced sensory digitization and revolutionary compression algorithms disrupted the telecommunications industry in the 2030s.

Humans started to engage in remote hyper-experiential connections where all five senses were accurately digitized. Till today, people are referring to it as teleportation, but the technical label, which was coined by a bunch of visionaries in the late 2010s, is ‘holographic telepresence’.

Ineluctable ego- and power-driven conflicts indeed manifested during the infant age of this technology, but the widespread empathetic response generated by such a transparent, immersive, real-time multi-sensorial communications paradigm, ultimately allowed to bridge cultural and societal gaps across continents.

In the meantime, research breakthroughs in computer- and neuro-science provided humans with sophisticated tools to assess their own psychological states aimed at improving their well-being. This technology blossomed in the late 2030s, and allowed mankind to reach a higher collective consciousness. Along these lines, the last fundamental transition before stepping into our age stems from further disruptive technological advancements that took place in the 2040s.

Lion Kimbro I don't agree. Because: (A) It took 50 years for visual VR to get from a very-limited state to a barely acceptable state that it is now, and the "five senses accurately digitized" isn't even started, really; (B) even if full-VR setup was working, the 2000-2008's optimism about collective consciousness and the Internet never materialized, and instead we discovered the mass manipulation and fear and territorialism that showed up on the Internet -- the "Dark Forest" theory of the Internet for example of what I mean. The development of collective consciousness requires something like social transformation or religious transformation, which is a wild card, rather than a thing guaranteed by a level of technological development, it seems. 29 Sep 2019

Marriette Deckard Access however will be uneven and difficult at first due to increasing economic inequality. The leveling up of the collective mind however begins to offset this as heightened empathy will likely lead to humans being more apt to make the necessary changes to address severe economic inequality. 14 Mar 2019
Petar Bojović Probably even before the 2030s. 06 Feb 2019
