'Privacy will end in 2013'

Abstract:
Alex Fuss, lead researcher on CSC's Digital Disruptions report*, unveils his predictions for the future How will IT change?

Information will become more transparent. I envision something like a software RFID-like tag for securities that allows the world at large to track every detail of what is going on in the financial markets, in the same manner that Wal-Mart tracks products from initial order to production, sale and re-stock.

What will happen in 2050 and beyond?

From 2025 to 2050 and beyond, nanotechnology will give us the capability to create anything, molecule by molecule, atom by atom. The technology is at very early stages but it is definitely going to happen. For example, it will be possible to create a piece of wood. But self-replication is crucial, otherwise the technology won't scale up. What's needed is nano parts that self-assemble - that way you can mass-produce anything. * www.csc.com/ee/lef
