Fast forward to 2021, a time where technology assists us in overcoming some of these challenges whilst simultaneously increasing our productivity levels. Imagine a future where you leave your house full of internet connected items at home in the morning and set off for a 400-mile round journey, taking a seat in your connected autonomous vehicle or driverless car, which is programmed to your comfort temperature and automatically adjusts to combat the chill outside - no more scrapping the ice off the windscreen or sitting in a cold car!
Your virtual Bot - let's call her Siri - greets you and wishes you a beautiful day. You stretch your legs, open your screen and ask Siri to take you to your destination. Siri calculates the best route knowing that you need to be at your destination at lunchtime and that you will also need a 30 minute break during your journey, basing calculations on your preferences and the traffic alerts across the country. Whilst you complete some work and make phone calls, Siri drives towards your destination, listening to the conversations and identifying the words and emotions. Soon enough, Siri understands - thanks to the watch on your wrist monitoring the nutrients in your bloodstream - you need a caffeine hit along with some glucose as your sugar levels are low having skipped breakfast in the morning. Siri communicates with the virtual Bot at the next Starbucks drive-through, ordering you a medium Americano with 2 sugars and paying through an app in your car.
The same will be repeated for your lunch and dinner, with decisions on what you should eat and when calculated by a 'Bot' monitoring your metabolic rate, ensuring you have the right nutrients to keep your body in perfect balance. Perhaps this is one way to tackle rising obesity?
