Year 2050–What will the world be like when I am 100? Big Think

Big Think Answers In 2050–Will you be healthier?  Wealthier?  Wiser?

What will the world be like when I am 100

By 2050,  the planet will house 9 billion people, who will consume  ever more precious resources all the while  leading even greater  technologically complicated existences.  What will we eat?  What will out towns and cities be like?  Will the climate crisis still exist or will we still exist?  BIG THINK asked top thinkers across the country these and other questions to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Smithsonian magazine.   The outcome  is Big Think’s special series which discusses  Life in 2050 .  Summary of the findings:


  • Dramatic demographic shifts expected.  Average age rates will increase and most people will live in urban areas.


  • Real time pricing for energy will be the result  of  “smart grids”  that all our appliances will be linked to.


  • Media will continue to be radically transformed destroying the traditional model for a news organization and replacing it with  “individuals and small alliances of individuals” reporting and publishing on niche topics.  (Like this really awesome BLOG!)
  • No surprise will come that technological threats such as viruses and terrorism could compromise most of the  openness and freedoms that we currently enjoy online.

The Environment

  • Freshwater will certainly be a bigger issue along with out-of-control rises in sea levels and enormous crop shortfalls.  

Financial Markets

  • Financial products of today, will be determined illegal due to their non-beneficial nature to consumers (eg. over-the-counter derivatives).


  • While we may not radically extend life beyond 120, it is certain that we will continue to improve the quality of life as people age.
  • It is believed that  HIV/AIDS will still exist but our knowledge of the virus and therapies to treat will be more extensive.
  • Food supplies will be more localized  with smaller slaughterhouses , creameries, and increased regional food operations .  Big Think feels we will be healthier due to this trend.


  • Processed foods will be out of vogue and food eaten will be from more local sources.  


  • Race issues will  not be such a significant issue, but class issues may be.  It is even possible that we will see a black pope.
  • Prison Population in the US will decrease by 2050. 

Big Think represents  a worldwide  forum of  today’s top minds and influential experts .  1500 thought leaders worldwide have had their ideas showcased via BIG THINK.

What do you think?  What other changes to our world could/should happen in the next 40 Years?

See what you will look like in 30 years!

Want a Peek into the Future? Simulate an Older You for Free with

Chief Blonde aged 30 years

Chief blonde age 24 and 54

Chief Blonde at 47 aged to 77

First Online Application to Show Real Photos 20, 30 Years into the Future

Ever wonder what you will look like in 20 years? How about 30? Luxand Inc., developer of and, is launching, a new free website that simulates the effects of time on the photo subject’s face, prompting the tagline “See You…In 20 Years!” When the user uploads a photo, the application automatically recognizes and transforms facial structures to make the subject of the photo appear to be 20 or 30 years older, depending on the user’s choice.

In the pictures above the Chief Blonde has aged herself 30 years!  I took a picture of my self when I was 24 (1/2 a lifetime ago) and aged myself to 54.  I took another of myself at 47 and aged myself to 77.  Ha!  I am not getting older, I am getting better.  Wanna try it on yourself?  Your husband?

To see what he/she will look like in the future, the user simply selects a few parameters (including gender and how many years into the future) and uploads a photo of his/her face. Click the link to see the results—a fully aged version of the photo the user uploaded. The application requires no registration and is available for free.

“We’re all curious about our futures, so why not start with something today’s technology can loosely predict?” said Alex Konoplev, CEO of Luxand. “In20Years is a fun application that lets us visualize how we might look in the future and share these pictures with our friends.”

For a little extra fun, Luxand includes a “drug addict” option, which combines the effects of aging and years of drug use to offer a truly frightening look into the future.  (ALthough you may find it hard to believe the Chief Blonde did not use the “Years of Drug Use option”!)

Based on Luxand face detection and morphing technologies, the In20Years engine automatically detects facial features in a photo and then runs algorithms to transform each feature to appear as it might in 15 or 30 years. It is compatible with any size photo at any resolution.

Still Blonde imageChief Blonde Remarks:  Fun application.  Try it out and send me copies, I promise not to post.  You don’t have to sign up to try it.  Some of their other applications you do though, so take note of that.
