Trend 8: Another family tree
Virtual humans, both physical (robots) and online avatars will be added to the workforce. “Already, animated characters can recognize speech, convert text to speech, and have knowledge of previous encounters,” says Evans.

By 2020, robots will be physically superior to humans. IBM’s Blue Brain project, for instance, is a 10-year mission to create a human brain using hardware and software. “They believe that within a decade they’ll start to see consciousness emerge with this brain,” Evans says.

By 2025, the robot population will surpass the number of humans in the developed world. By 2032, robots will be mentally superior to humans. And by 2035, robots could completely replace humans in the workforce.

Note: Get ready for more riots for the unemployed humans.
