Self-healing is already happening, so we are talking about self-thinking, sentient and even self-coding systems in Cyber by 2040. Days will continue to be 24hrs long but productivity and efficiency from that 24hrs will have grown multi-fold. You will be able to do more with less.
Today it’s Industry v4.0 and we are marching to 5.0 by 2030 and 6.0 by early next decade. Industry 5.0 refers to people working alongside robots and smart machines. It’s about robots helping humans work better and faster by leveraging advanced technologies. While the cloud will make all this revolution possible, highly integrated systems will become vulnerable to systemic risks such as total collapse. Hyper-connectivity creates new social and political structures. If left unchecked, they might lead to authoritarian governance too. CyberSecurity will evolve at a similar scale to tackle things like FireSale in Cyber.
