10-Yr Scientific forecast!
Here you will find a 10-years science and technology forecast! While scientific sites and databases focus mostly on the past, alternativehypotheses is the only website to provide, thanks to its statistical engine, an estimation of future knowledge! This panoptic panorama on our future will help future studies by adding more comprehensive predictions and innovative assumptions. In our view, combining many forecasts may improve accuracy and even creativity of "future thinkers".
|An ancient american tongue Voynich: The Voynich manuscript secret will be uncovered. The source language is: (Le 06/10/2025 00h09)|
Only a few words have been deciphered by a careful analysis of the numerous illustrations of the manuscript. for example the word Chiron a Centaur has been identified. said BG. See this reference A Preliminary Analysis of the Botany, Zoology, and Mineralogy of the Voynich Manuscript by Arthur O. Tucker, Rexford H. Talbert HerbalGram. 2013; American Botanical Council. Here one of their illustration for a plant that could be "Caulanthus Heterophyllus". It is native to California and Baja California, say the authors. said BG.
|False EmDrive thruster: propulsion systems that donÃ¢â¬â¢t need propellant as the EmDrive (electromagnetic drive) is possible (Le 01/01/2027 11h51)|
EmDrive is one of the spaceship equipment that would allow interstellar travels. The problem is that no proof of feasability or even theoretical arguments demonstrate that this system could be designed (picture: White et al. via AIAA) said BG.
|No Ray Kurzweil predicts that by the 2030s, nanotechnology will eliminate disease (Le 01/09/2030 14h49)|
Ray Kurzweil proposes a positive view on the future. Despite the interest of AI and nanotechs to improve medicine, I propose that malicious events and people (or machines) could interfere in order keep a selection pressure and their political power on people. said BG.
|Analytical intelligence #covid19 : covid19 will generate a darwinian positive selection pressure over humans, selecting some psychological traits. Which ones ? (Le 01/05/2025 11h27)|
I would vote for analytical intelligence because vaccination will be accepted by people with better anticipation and benefit/risk understanding. Those people will benefit higher survival rates and will survive darwinian selection. People with lower skills to anticipate risks will be vaccinated later, or not at all. They will face higher death rates. Covid-19 may become one of the strongest selection challenge humans have faced since centuries. said BG. An interesting account with several evolution theory insights on covid19 : The abstracts says: Humans and viruses have been coevolving for millennia. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19) has been particularly successful in evading our evolved defenses. The outcome has been tragicÃ¢â¬âacross the globe, millions have been sickened and hundreds of thousands have died. Moreover, the quarantine has radically changed the structure of our lives, with devastating social and economic consequences that are likely to unfold for years. An evolutionary perspective can help us understand the progression and consequences of the pandemic. Here, a diverse group of scientists, with expertise from evolutionary medicine to cultural evolution, provide insights about the pandemic and its aftermath. said BG.
