1000年后的世界

World In 1,000 Years From Now

It is unlikely that anyone now can answer the question,
目前为止很难有人能回答这个问题:
What will the world be like in a thousand years?
一千年后的世界会是什么样子?
it is impossible to predict the future even one hundred years from now,
一百年后的世界都是很难预测的
but despite this,
但是尽管如此
Scientists and futurists can still make assumptions,
科学家和未来学家们依然能够做出一些预想
and seriously consider various options for the future of our civilization,
来推测我们文明所面临的各种选择——
even for millennia ahead.
甚至是数千年之后的
And these hypothesis do not necessarily exclude
并且这些假设并不一定互相对立
but rather complement each other.
还有可能是相互补充
Lets see what they’ve dreamed up here.
下面让我们来看看他们设想的未来远景
The extension of human life in the future is one of those tasks,
在未来 如何延长生命将会是绕不开的话题
the work on which is unlikely to ever cease.
人类对此的努力将永不会停止
One solution is medical nano-robots that purify and protect the body.
一种解决方案就是使用能够净化和保护身体的医疗纳米机器人
Together with our own natural leukocytes,
这种机器人与我们自身的白细胞一起工作
slowing down aging and of course healing cancer and other diseases.

And this brings us to the next subject,
这就将我们引入到接下来的话题
immortality in the future is an ideal that an overwhelming majority of people are counting on,

whether its achieved through bio-technology, nano-technology,
不管它是通过生物技术 纳米技术
or the merging of people with machines, is not so important.
还是人与机器的混合来实现 都不太重要
Average life expectancy was just 37 years in the 1800,
1800年 人的平均寿命只有37岁
now,
而现在
average life expectancy has reached an amazing 79 years.

但是我们必须永生吗?
And do we want to?
我们真的想要永生吗?
A future with unlimited energy and a clean environment,
一个没有能源限制和整洁环境的未来
can also be achieved through the wonders of advanced nano-robots.
也可以通过先进的纳米机器人技术实现
They would purify water and air while meeting the needs of humanity like collecting solar energy.
它们在满足人类各种需求(比如收集太阳能)的同时 还可以净化水和空气
Given the current problems on our planet earth.
鉴于地球当前面临的种种问题
I would like to see such a step as soon as possible,
我希望能早点看到这一天
a future of the earth is a bit sad but not the worst option.

But the end of our singular loneliness in the universe would definitely be worth it,
但如果能在宇宙中给孤独的人类找个伴 一切都将值得
wouldn’t it?
不是吗?
A future with intelligent machines is a logical continuation from our present point,
目前来看 智能机器将会是世界的发展趋势
if your not lucky enough to meet aliens
如果我们无法邂逅外星人
our future neighbors might be intelligent robots created by us.
创造智能机器人来相伴也不错
Considering how much artificial intelligence will develop over the next thousand years,
想象下在接下来的千百年里 人工智能将会发展到何种地步
it will certainly not be boring.
这绝不会让你失望
Our technological future implies not only the development of technology,
科技的未来并不仅仅是科技本身的进步
but also our literal fusion with it.

And space travel in the future, which we would like to see,
另外在未来 我们希望
will likely become as simple as moving around on the earth.

it will be necessary to take into account not only the various technological difficulties
我们不仅要考虑到各种各样的技术难题
but also the negative impact that such environments have on the human body.

Perhaps the problem can be solved by modification of our DNA.
也许这个问题可以通过编辑我们的DNA来解决
A future without the problem of over-population.
