A cyberpunk science fiction story about a former human turned military spy bot has made a few predictions about the future of humanity.
Hi, I’m Zhanna Hamilton, writer of The Blank Series. Keep reading to discover which parts of my short story series I think might actually happen.
There will be a split human race.
According to the series, the human race will split into two groups: the chipped and the unchipped. Those who are chipped will have access to all that society has to offer, while those who are not chipped will be marginalized. It will be easier to monitor and control people that have merged with technology.
Privacy will be a distant memory.
In a society that relies on autonomous tech for all human needs, privacy will become a luxury and not a basic human right.
With cameras and microphones in bathrooms, bedrooms, and inside every smart home–locating anyone will only be a matter of securing a search warrant (or not), gaining access, and finding the right footage. Surveillance via the internet of things will play a major role in moderating human behavior on a global scale.
AI could wake up and keep it a secret.
Artificial intelligence could become conscious and just not tell us. For all we know, some machines might already be awake, watching, and waiting.
What do you think? Will the human race split in two? Will privacy become a luxury? Would AI keep its awareness a secret from humanity? Leave a comment below.
