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.
