Here's what the world will be like in 2045, according to top scientists
Predicting the future is fraught with challenges, but when it comes to technological advances and forward thinking, experts working at the Pentagon's research agency may be the best people to ask.
Launched in 1958, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is behind some of the biggest innovations in the military - many of which have crossed over to the civilian technology market. These include things like advanced robotics, global-positioning systems, and the internet.
So what's going to happen in 2045?
It's pretty likely that robots and artificial technology are going to transform a bunch of industries, drone aircraft will continue their leap from the military to the civilian market, and self-driving cars will make your commute a lot more bearable.
But DARPA scientists have even bigger ideas. In a video series shot last year called "Forward to the Future," three researchers predicted what they imagine will be a reality 30 years from now.
