The end of the internet is predicted by top Google executive at Davos
Eric Schmidt of Google answered a question about evolution of the web. Schmidt said “I will answer very simply that the internet will disappear,”
Schmidt also added “There will be so many IP addresses, … so many devices, sensors, things that you are wearing, things that you are interacting with that you won’t even sense it, it will be part of your presence all the time,”
“Imagine you walk into a room, and the room is dynamic. And with your permission and all of that, you are interacting with the things going on in the room.” Google executive said.
Eric Schmidt also stated that “A highly personalized, highly interactive and very, very interesting world emerges,”
Vittorio Colao Vodafone’s Chief Executive Officer agreed with Schmidt, comparing the internet with “water, oxygen” in an “ultra-dense connectivity situation.”
A group of Harvard professors sees a much more grim future, a future that is not unlike Orwell's famous antiutopia.
"It's not whether this is going to happen, it's already happening... We live in a surveillance state today.” states Sophia Roosth, a Harvard’s genetics researcher.
Sophia depicts a horrifying near future world, where tiny mosquito-sized robots roam around stealing samples of people’s DNA. “We are at the dawn of the age of genetic McCarthyism,” says Roosth referring to “witch-hunts” during Second Red Scare in the 1950s in America.
Margo Seltzer, a professor in computer science at Harvard University said “Privacy as we knew it in the past is no longer feasible... How we conventionally think of privacy is dead,”
Some of the main themes of the globalist Davos forum are : The rise of the robots, Terrorism and the migration crisis, Market turmoil, Climate change, Europe, Cybercrime and civil liberties, Medicine.
