For the majority of this module, we have focused on what is and what has been in regards to the internet, its regulations, the technology and the theories about its current functionality and existence. Now, I want you to think for just a moment about where the internet could be in five, maybe even ten years. Considering that most of us are around 20 years old, we have seen the development of the internet from its early stages to its current state and it has already made great strides in helping us in our daily lives. But could this reach a point where it is taken too far?
It is estimated that by the year 2020 computer chips will be assembled by using individual atoms or molecules, giving them the intellectual capability of human beings. According to developers at Intel, the keyboard and mouse will no longer be necessary as you will control your computer with you mind, after they surgically insert a brain implant into your skull.
“Imagine being able to surf the web with the power of your thoughts” said Intel researcher Dean Pomerleau.
Do you think these technological advances will go as well as planned if they ever even hit the market? Would you be for or against them? And do you see the digital era taking a different turn than what is predicted here?
