If the Universe Has the Answers – What Are the Questions?

In Elon Musk’s words, “…if we expand the scope and scale of consciousness, then we are better able to understand what questions to ask”. In all predictions of what technology will bring us in 2021 and beyond, one must ask the right questions and not just focus on the shiny new things.

The right questions often lead to complicated explanations as we live in a world of such advanced technologies that to people from as recently as a hundred years ago, we are practically magicians. I have always believed that technology will transform society for all the good that can bring. However, as ever in life, good always brings bad, but the choices remain ours.

The critical question we must ask regarding technology, ‘is it making things better for society? And the answer, while complicated, is a resounding yes.

The past years’ broad trends leading to all sorts of world-changing innovations remain communication, data, and digital transformation. The lens through which one must ask questions and solve problems is, for the most part, focused on the role of these trends.
