In 1856, Gregor Mendel began his work on inherited traits as a Catholic monk in a monastery.
In 1859, Charles Darwin published On the Origin of Species.
In 1927, Nikolai Koltsov proposed that inherited traits would be inherited via a "giant hereditary molecule".
In 1953, the first transistor computer became operational.
In 1958, Francis Crick stated the central dogma of molecular biology.
In the 1990s began the open source software revolution.
In the 2000s began the social media revolution with the web.
In 2015, a revolution began in genetic engineering with CRISPR/Cas9 related technologies.
In 2017, a women received a bionic hand with sense of touch.
In 2018, the open source hardware revolution might have begun.
In 2018, paper jam in printers is still a problem.
Some problems are more difficult than others.
Some solutions are more profitable than others.
Some efforts are more supported than others.
DNA scientist James Watson stripped of honors over views on race (2019-1-13).
“Dr Watson’s statements are reprehensible, unsupported by science, and in no way represent the views of CSHL, its trustees, faculty, staff, or students. The laboratory condemns the misuse of science to justify prejudice.”

What Bodies Think About: Bioelectric Computation Outside the Nervous System - NeurIPS 2018 (2018-12-05).
The following estimated timeline corresponds to what I think is possible if the timeline was the goal of all societies on Earth.
I expect the timeline to be 5 to 25 years too early.
automation and machine abilities.
Change of best practices and expected practices:
Increase of observation by machines.
Increase of knowledge of any kind.
Increase of tolerance and safety.
Better ways to produce food:
- Using chemicals to produce food. Machines use basic ingredients to create food.
- Using natural and increasingly genetically modified plants, fungi, algae, bacteria and other cells.
Food will have optimal quality and optimal content of nutrients and interesting tastes and no allergens and no toxins.
Food will be produced in some kind of containers for various reasons like e.g.
- Automated work.
- Efficient provision and management of nutrients and water.
- Optimal climate.
- Less ground surface is required because of many floors in a large building.
- No pests.
- No weed.
- No interaction with the outside environment.
Various organizations become alternatives to classic companies regarding the making of goods and provision of services.
Begin of unknown lifespans for most persons: Death statistics are useless to deduce a death probability.
Increase of efforts to understand the brain and the relation between physical awareness and mental awareness.
Increase of improvements of living biological body parts:
- By chemicals.
- By genetic changes.
Increase of machine persons:
- Implantation of machine parts and robots into biological bodies.
- Replacement of biological body parts by machine body parts.
- Survival of persons by transplantation of brain parts into machines. Maybe after 2025.
- Creation or modification of persons by growing artificial brain parts and connecting them to machines or other brain parts. Maybe after 2025.
- Creation of machine persons without biological body parts. Maybe after 2025.
Increase of the human population living in large efficient cities.
Decrease of the human population living in smaller cities.
Short distances to many other persons has many personal and social and technical and practical benefits.
Wage slavery ends for all persons because of automation of most work for goods and services related to survival:
- Medical care.
- Personality care.
Use and property of land and water changes in some, many or most countries.
It has already happened in in New Zealand in 2017 although not with private property.
The end of evil privacy will happen this decade. humans might decrease from now on.
Why keep natural sex organs when genetic engineering, breeding machines and machine body parts are normal and better ?
Change in Mother’s Mental State Can Influence Her Baby’s Development Before and After Birth (2011-11-09).
In recent decades, researchers have found that the environment a fetus is growing up in—the mother’s womb—is very important.
They found something interesting: what mattered to the babies was if the environment was consistent before and after birth. That is, the babies who did best were those who either had mothers who were healthy both before and after birth, and those whose mothers were depressed before birth and stayed depressed afterward.

Boobs don't bother me too often but if I could store my uterus until needed that would be amazing.
Anti-aging procedures and most medical procedures will be surgical procedures:
Old cells will be replaced by younger cells. Maybe even individual cells can be removed or added.

Change means death of what was.
Eventually the human brain will be part of a world that is determined by knowledge, abilities and decisions of machines.
The human brain will be used as generator or trigger or processor of mental experiences.
Of course this scenario must be avoided: I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream (1967-03). machine abilities (artificial intelligence, AI) will increase and what abilities will be created.
There are different constraints:
Technical, social, biological. Engineers must create the
machines and programs.
New kinds of machines will change much.
E.g. memristor (state in 2017), atomristor, artificial brain, quantum computing.
It is probably useful to predict the increase of computation power and to assume that machine abilities increase accordingly.
- Practical. What is useful and wanted ?
- Political and ethical. What is allowed ?
Classic states protecting or stealing natural resources are not acceptable in a world with super intelligence.
The change from "my family, my country" to "one humanity, one world" is required for a good future with AI. AI will happen anyway.

'Whoever leads in AI will rule the world’: Putin to Russian children on Knowledge Day (2017-09-01).
“Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia, but for all humankind. It comes with colossal opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to predict. Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
“If we become leaders in this area, we will share this know-how with entire world, the same way we share our nuclear technologies today,” he told students from across Russia via satellite link-up, speaking from the Yaroslavl region.

U.S. Military Is Building Smarter Robots and Thinks Insects Might Be Key to New Artificial Intelligence (2019-1-14).
US Navy moves toward unleashing killer robot ships on the world’s oceans (2019-1-15).
The world’s largest navy has spent the last few years feeling like it was being put in check.
China and Russia have heavily invested in anti-access technologies aimed at holding its main force-projection assets — aircraft carriers — at risk. Now the U.S. Navy and the upper ranks of the military are preparing to take back control of the game board, and it’s looking to unmanned technologies to help.
The U.S. surface fleet has for the past few years sought to flip the script on actors such as China. The fleet aimed to move from a role of simply defending the carrier to going on the offensive.
“How do all these platforms work together?” Richardson asked an audience at a technology forum. “In the extreme, I’d want to network everything to everything.”
Army Looking at AI-Controlled Weapons to Counter Enemy Fire (2019-1-10).
The head of U.S. Army acquisitions said Thursday that allowing artificial intelligence to control some weapons systems may be the only way to defeat enemy weapons.
U.S. military has embraced AI, arguing that America cannot compete against potential adversaries such as Russia and China without the futuristic technology.
Concern over placing machines in charge of deadly weapons has prompted military officials to adopt a conservative approach to AI, one that involves a human in the decision-making process for the use of deadly force.
The purpose of AI is to make more decisions faster and better and cheaper than humans can.
3D Printing An Entire Rocket (2019-1-14).
Already SpaceX has revolutionized the aerospace industry, but just down the street there’s another company that’s pushing the manufacturing of rocket engines a bit further. Relativity Space is building rockets. They’re 3D printing rocket engines, and they’re designing what could be the first rocket engine made on Mars.
Science and machines will be available to everyone.
The end of evil privacy is required.
