The batteries in mobile phones will last for as long as two months with a one-time charge by 2012. Information technology will evolve into a level that one can detect coffee aromas on the internet by 2015. Robots might well conduct simple surgical operations by 2018. These predictions come from head of the Information Ministry's IT Policy Division, Yoo Pil-gye.
