Requirements for Paradigm Shifts: New Communication Tools + New Energy Source

The requirement for paradigm shifts (revolutionary periods) to occur is the combination of 2 or more novel technological advances.
Communication Tool + Energy Source = Paradigm Shift
Examples from the 20th century are as follows.
・Combustion Engine + Petrol = Cars
・Radio Waves + Camera = TV
In the 21st century, we will see changes happen at an exponential speed.
Development of environmentally-friendly transportation
・5G + Renewable Energy = EV Cars
Overcoming Diseases that Prevent Longer Life
・AI Analysis + Gene Editing = Cures for Cancer
Dramatic Change in Goods Distribution
・Drones + Sensors = Package Deliveries
Education Personalized for Individual Capabilities and Interests
・Deep Learning + VR = STEM
Food Technology to Eliminate Hunger Due to Population Growth
・3D Printers + Cultivation Technology = Artificial Meat
In the future, the “speed” itself will accelerate. Things that took 100 years to evolve will become reality in just a few years. I am optimistic that solutions to the biggest problems of humanity, such as climate change, population growth, hunger, and disease, will come sooner than you think.
