In this episode of the Life in 2030 podcast, we explore the emerging field of Brain-Computer Interfaces, or BCI for short. It’s a field that’s already allowing amputees to control their prosthetic arms simply through the use of their thoughts, but in a few decades, its ability to make thoughts and data interchangeable opens up a world of opportunities, from surfing the web Matrix-style, to tech-enabled telepathy, and in particular to this episode, convicting criminals of hard-to-prove crimes.

LISTENER FEEDBACK

In this episode of the Life in 2030 podcast, we explore the growing field of laser weaponry. As crazy as it sounds, this tech is set to have a massive impact on global peace and geopolitics. On one hand, lasers will spur an arms race and yet on another, it will lead to a drastic decline in the civilian casualties of future wars.

LISTENER FEEDBACK

What do you think? Will the advance of laser weapons give the US a critical advantage on the battlefield? Will it help reduce the risk of nuclear war? Do you think it could save more lives than it harms?

In this episode of the Life in 2030 podcast, we explore how the technologies we’re currently working on could one day lead to our next evolutionary jump from man to machine.

LISTENER FEEDBACK

But what do you think? In what ways do you think we’ll end up using technologies like VR, AR, BCI? In trying to create an AI, are we really trying to create a god? Will the Metaverse ever become a reality?
