Forecasts of futurologists and scientists for 2020: fulfilled and unfulfilled


The year 2020 is often found in the forecasts of futurists and science fiction writers as the year of the appearance of various incredible technological innovations, including military-style novelties. In this story, Military Review will present those forecasts that were made for 2020 several years or even decades ago in different countries of the world. We are talking about those forecasts, the fate of which turned out differently: some came true, others partially came true, the third turned out to be not destined to come true by 2020.


Year 2006. From the forecast of a group of scientists at Ilon University (North Carolina, USA):

Robots and artificial intelligence in 2020 will become part of everyday life. They will not take almost all the routine physical work.

Robots and AI are really actively entering our lives, including the activities of industrial enterprises, transport, and the field of communications. Only “all the routine physical work” they have not yet exactly replaced.

2005 year. British futurologist Ian Pearson:

By 2020, a computer will be created with digital feelings, similar to the feelings that a person experiences. This computer will definitely have emotions. For example, he will tell me that he is very afraid to fly by plane - even more than me.

In 2009, the same Pearson announced the appearance by 2020 of electronic skin, which will be able to monitor signals from the nervous system. Electronic skin, according to the British futurologist, would allow a person to record experienced feelings when, for example, we hug a loved one.

Forecast from 1960: Humanity will achieve progress in medicine, which will lead to the fact that human life expectancy in 2020 will be on average 150 years.

Isn’t this forecast used to be guided by adherents of the relevance of raising the retirement age bar?

Forecast from 1969:

In 2020, spacecraft will be able to deliver to the moon anyone in just a few days. There you can spend your weekend and return to Earth. After that, people will be able to quickly get to the edge of the solar system, for example, to look at Pluto.

What would be the surprise of those forecasters if they were told in 1969 that the last manned flight to the moon (according to official NASA data) took place in December 1972. And then something went wrong ... especially with Pluto ...

Year 2004. Futurologist Ray Kurzweil:

By 2020, food consumption will be reduced, as billions of nanorobots in the human digestive tract will be able to most effectively extract the nutrients necessary for the body.

Academician Ivan Bardin (USSR) predicted the creation in the 2020st century of a technology in our country that would make it possible to obtain alloy steels without adding rare and expensive additives. The academician believed that alloying would allow a radioactive effect on the metal directly in a special bucket. In this case, the radioactive effect is described as "affordable technology for industry in XNUMX".

The end of the 1980s. In Europe, a complete rejection of nuclear weapons by 2020. This forecast was probably related to the well-known warming of relations between Washington and Moscow. It is noteworthy that in those same years, none of the European futurologists looked ahead instead of 40 years, 3-4 years, and did not predict what would happen to the USSR.

1990s. USA. Forecast: by 2020, most of the military operations will be carried out through armed robots, the use of manpower will be minimized - mainly to control operations and the use of robots.
If we consider this forecast through the prism of the modern use of drones, then it can be considered partially fulfilled.

There were predictions for obtaining what we call today genetically modified organisms, for improving communication systems to the level of transmitting information through "molecular chains", for refusing paper money. Something has come true, something is not. Or - not yet.

          Where do they come from? As long as the yachts of the second deputy mayors of not the largest Russian cities are in distress off the coast of Sardinia, there will be no money for the fleet. And what about the oligarchs say? Surpassed the Navy in terms of cost and displacement already. request

            What does it have to do with money stolen from the budgets of the regions for which small-town princes buy yachts, which are subsequently successfully flooded "off the coast", and money for an aircraft carrier fleet ?? Is Olvier fermented in the intestines or does excessive alcohol give rise to such "far-reaching" conclusions in your liberal-protest brain?

              It is very easy and simple, if such Tsarkov were planted, and property and money were taken in favor of the state, then at least one full-fledged aircraft carrier would be enough

          before harboring the carrier fleet, it is necessary to determine the goals and objectives, but we still do not know how to do this or do not want to
          in our company, at first we decided to build a nuclear power plant with shouts about the export of electricity, we completed the project, laid the stone, foundation pit, foundation, and then everything, for the power area are redundant and no one wanted to buy

              First you need to accurately describe the tasks for the fleet, then build ships for them, painfully expensive toys. Modern - very, the cost is comparable with cities. And not vice versa - “they have it, so we need it,” we’ll build it, but it will be visible there.
              According to your example, the Masons talked in an undertone, and the Union broke and ended. Without wars, ships and nuclear submarines.

      Progress in medical science and practical medicine is a very different concept. If you put into practice at least part of the accumulated, the average duration of 100 years will be no problem. The problem is different, the revenues of commercial medicine will then drop tenfold.

        Isaac Asimov ... Mars? (just offhand ... rustling ...

        Here is what was predicted only recently, on December 26, 2006, on the pages of the KP regarding Mars:
        Richard GOTT, Professor of Astrophysics, Princeton University:
        - If the leading countries unite and draw up a single space exploration program, then humanity will master Mars in the next fifty years. We are capable of it! Moreover, the development of the Red Planet is the most urgent task. The organization of an autonomous colony there will completely change world history. Such a settlement will become a kind of insurance for humanity. In case any cataclysm happens on Earth, such as the fall of a giant meteorite. And, judging by the discoveries of paleontologists, such troubles in the history of our planet have already occurred more than once.

        But what about AI in 2020:
        Ray KERZVEIL, head of the computer corporation "Kerzweil Technology":
        “First, computers will start to“ think ”as fast as we do. By 2020, they will be equal in speed to the human brain - they will produce approximately 10 million billion calculations per second.
        The development of the software necessary for "modeling the mind" will take another 10 years. But the result will be amazing - we will merge with the machines that we create. And we get the opportunity to analyze the gigantic arrays of accumulated data - almost all of the intellectual baggage of mankind.

      Well, not really fiction, at least in those professions that will lose demand after 2020, as indicated in 2014:
      “Professions that become obsolete in the next 20 years, they are gradually leaving Russia. From the point of view of working professions: ticketer, valet, call center operator, elevator, postman, traffic police inspector, packer, foreman, seamstress. As for the intellectual professions, these are librarians, testers, surveyors, copywriters, travel agents. After 20 years, up to 80% of accountants, legal advisers, notaries, pharmacists, secretaries, logisticians, dispatchers, system administrators are threatened, " - said Dmitry Peskov, director of the Young Professionals Agency for Strategic Initiatives, live on the Russian News Service.
      According to him, the state is obliged to start massive retraining programs, as there will be a large number of new professions that will need to be retrained.

    It seems like .. smile But I was interested to read what we thought December 31, 2018.

    “But the sanctions against Ukraine will certainly expand and grow stronger. And it was quite obvious a long time ago. In particular, I wrote about the need for such sanctions back in 2014. But not everyone believes the soothsayers, alas ...
    And so that this would be painless enough for all (except Ukraine) interested parties, in the coming year, the main work will be completed on some pipelines that will connect Russia and Europe bypassing Ukraine. There, of course, it’s still far from the final readiness to supply gas to the final consumer, but, in which case, the European authorities can already be rushed. "


    "We’ll even risk assuming that the end of the world will not happen in the coming year. The Earth will not fly on the celestial axis, the white Arap from White Arapia will not go to war with us, the planet Nibiru will not leave its orbit and will not look out from behind the Sun, and the massive invasion of humanoid metamorphs will go unnoticed and assimilated safely. "

          The higher the cost of a barrel, the more money the budget will receive, from one dollar 117 billion rubles a year, Russia’s high oil prices will always be beneficial in terms of replenishing the budget.

    The number of crematoria will definitely increase. What many call AI is called distorted reality, which means that the brain of most of the younger generation grows in illusions and self-deception. The key technological problem is the lack of a corresponding increase in energy reproduction to ensure the entire energy mix of consumers. Hence the confrontation in the form of bloody battles for resources.

            It should be noted separately that sooner or later Gazprom will burst like a soap bubble. So you need to understand what are the causes of such a collapse. Therefore, the question is whether the leadership of this organization understands what timeliness is and what the process of diversification of funds means and where these vectors should be directed and concentrated. At the moment, it is obvious that such questions are not even indicated, and there are also parameters for the dynamics of the development of processes that sometimes remain hidden from the eyes of ordinary people. But the bell was already stirring, then to ring!

Europe has already passed laws to abolish mining subsidies. What does it mean? That they will be one step ahead in the development of technologies that do not use gas. That ultimately does not cancel the application and its use, but it is definitely not its owners who will regulate the price. And all this will affect the growth of people's living standards.

      I don’t drink it, but I smoke, and cheap Belarusian muck, 50 rubles per pack. After coughing, the nasty taste of polyethylene remains in my mouth.
      And this is what the law has prepared for me for the next three years.
      Excise tax on cigarettes:
      2020, for a thousand pieces - 14,5% of the estimated cost - 1966 rubles;
      2021 --- 2045 rubles,
      2022 - 2127 rubles.
      That is, this year more than 60 rubles per pack will be taken from me for poison.

      And here is what the law has prepared for you, a colleague.
      Vodka 0,5 L - 230 rubles (it used to be 215)
      Cognac - 433 rubles (previously 388)
      Starting January 1, the new wine excise system. Rates become the same for Russian and imported wines.
      2020 --31 ruble per liter
      2021 - 32

        Even with “partners” it is impossible. Technical progress has hit the nail on the head! No one knows how to send a man to the moon. A quantum computer is only in formulas (everything else about it is a scam). Wars cannot physically grow to another plane after 1991 (Desert Storm), all laser-masers are only a dream. Robots and robotic platforms cannot replace operators and taxi drivers. Films and series are the same. The writers' works are different variations of Chekhov, Dostoevsky and Galsworthy. Poets are generally in the ass! Music is one and the same. Only ecofascists collect points! For it is not progress, but regression ...

          any tipping points are very painful and palpable. But most importantly, they are not perceived stereotypically. On the contrary, they are perceptibly imperceptible. It will be a shock since it will be incomprehensible. But it will be a reality because everything is obvious.

        Development of what? Techniques - definitely not. Scientific thought? So it’s still not clear: does the universe inflation, or vice versa? There are theories, but the evidence is zero. Even this collider has not and will not prove anything. Philosophy? That's where there is no development, exactly in this area. Visualization? There is development, but already at the limit (just watch the last episode of "Star Wars"). In religion? But for this, the rabbis can even “tear their heads off,” and the pope simply remains silent. Where is the development?

    The end of the 1980s. In Europe, a complete rejection of nuclear weapons is forecasted by 2020. This forecast was probably related to the well-known warming of relations between Washington and Moscow. It is noteworthy that in those same years, none of the European futurologists looked ahead instead of 40 years, 3-4 years, and did not predict what would happen to the USSR.

    I understood that the party and Soviet apparatus was decaying, but I did not know that it was so much so that the Union collapsed. At the lower levels, both the Communists and Soviet power were sane and for the most part popular. I took this out of one deputy term, although degradation would be visible to the naked eye.

      Precisely that the power was popular! Only general tasks are incomprehensible. The construction of communism or developed socialism? One could simply move away from the ideology of Trotskyism and build "developed socialism" with one party dominating. Now the dominance of one party is transforming the remainder of the USSR into an authoritarian-capitalist system, or rather has already transformed it. Moreover, this batch of EP is a purely artificial chimera, which, except for Tel Yavivzor, ​​is not authoritative anywhere. Like other parties. In the USSR, power was precisely people's! I caught her sunset at the age of 18, but even then I recall the system as the most thoughtful in relation to all people living in the USSR.

          Well, the fact that in the late 80s the top of the traitors became a mafia, you can not argue with that. And nevertheless, pindyu - the ss recognized in 89 of the USSR at the peak of economic power. The main problem of the loss of the USSR is not in the field of economics.

            The main problem of the USSR was precisely in the economy due to which 120 countries of the world were fed a huge army and country, and ultimately the country’s money ran out in the 80s.
