Bill Gates's 7 Predictions For Our Future

Here are a selection of some of Bill Gates’ most amazing predictions about future technology.

Bill Gates has been proved nearly prophetic in his predictions. His correct prediction about the rise of smartphones and social media and a wealth of evidence recommends his other future predictions could be on the right track, too.
In last few years, in interviews and annual letters, he has made many other predictions. Here is a selection of some of Bill Gates’ most amazing predictions about future technology.
1. In the next 15 years, Bioterrorism could wipe out 33 million people.
At the Munich Security Conference, Gates noted that “epidemiologists say a fast-moving airborne pathogen could kill more than 30 million people in less than a year.”. Mutation, accident, or terrorist intent could be the reason he believes.
This is why Gates and his foundation have formed extensive vaccination one of their top priorities around the globe.
2. Africa will become entirely self-sufficient in terms of food production.
He believes Africa will achieve the goal because of a number of innovation and structural changes.
"In the next 15 years, however, innovations in farming will erase these brutal ironies," Gates said in his 2015 Annual Letter "The world has already developed better fertilizer and crops that are more productive, nutritious, and drought- and disease-resistant; with access to these and other existing technologies, African farmers could theoretically double their yields".
3. Mobile banking is going to transform the lives of the poor.
Electronic banking systems will help the poor in storing and protecting their money digitally, “by 2030, 2 billion people who don’t have a bank account today will be storing money and making payment with their phones,..And by then, mobile money providers will be offering the full range of financial services, from interest-bearing savings accounts to credit to insurance." he exclaimed in his 2015 Annual Letter.
4. By 2035, there will be no poor country.
Gates beleives that continued foreign aid can help to take it to a level when there will be almost no more poor countries(by 2035)."Almost all countries will be what we now call lower-middle income or richer," Gates wrote in his 2014 Annual Letter"Countries will learn from their most productive neighbors and benefit from innovations like new vaccines, better seeds, and the digital revolution."
5. By 2030, the world will have found a clean-energy breakthrough to power our world.
In a slightly more recent prediction, made in 2016, Gates does not name any existing method of renewable energy as the panacea, but he believes the key is investment in young people. He has already invested $2 billion in innovative alternative technologies.
6. Countless jobs will be lost to automation.
Bill Gates envisages, a world in which humans are put out of work by robots. To resolve the problem he thinks of essentially taxing the robots who perform this labor, to preserve the income tax you'd otherwise get from a human.
7. Polio might be eliminated worldwide by 2019.
Gates pointed-out data indicating that the prevalence of polio has been reduced from impacting millions of people in hundreds of countries to now being active in only three countries worldwide. "The global polio community is now finalizing a detailed plan that I believe should allow us to finish the job of polio eradication within the next six years," he wrote in his 2013 Annual Letter.
