Watch this footage from London in 1918. It's a pretty good representation of 1918 technology and society.
Now watch this footage from 1950 London.
My point is that the additional multiplier of exponentially improving computer processing and capacity, mixed with new types of computer architecture to include AI dedicated and quantum computers will make London of the year 2050 look more like the difference between 1318 and 1950.
I seriously don't think climate change is going to be our biggest concern in the year 2050.
Global warming must not exceed 1.5C, warns landmark UN report. Carbon pollution would have to be cut by 45% by 2030 – compared with a 20% cut under the 2C pathway – and come down to zero by 2050, compared with 2075 for 2C.
