By 2040, cabs will be driven by Google robots, shops will become showrooms for online outlets and call centres will be staffed by intelligent droids.
That’s the scenario depicted in recent research which suggests robots could be taking over our lives and jobs in less than 30 years.
The competition for work caused by a rise in the robots population will see us heading to surgeons for ‘additional processing power for our brains’, they claim.
We may also be requesting bionic implants for our hands that will make us able to perform tasks as fast as any machine.
Futurologists, commissioned by global job search website xpatjobs.com, say workers will have less job security and will work more unsociable hours.
Those who take these risks and innovate with their own bodies will be the biggest earners in 2040, they claim.
However, the study added that workers may be left with poor eyesight, smaller sexual organs, and constantly-furrowed brows as they struggle to keep up to life in the 21st century.
Experts expect the current 37.4 hour working week to increase by a third to 50.5 hours.

Straight through college, you likely relied largely on one pool from which to fish for your closest friends: School. Everyone was about the same age and more or less at the same life stage: Unmarried, maybe uncoupled, and few if any kids. You easily found people who liked what you liked, saw the world through a similar prism, and shared your interests. Then you hit the brick wall known as graduation and your circle of friends scattered to the four corners.
We're not going to lie. Friendship often gets trickier as you get older. Here are six things you should know.
If you’re looking for new channels to buy and sell fashion items, then Zalora has a new option for you. After announcing its plan for a marketplace for third-party merchants in January, the ecommerce company launched the platform yesterday in three countries: Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
Following its blockbuster IPO, Twitter soared north of $70 per share, topping out at $74.73. Not bad for a company that priced at $26 per share. Since that late-2013 high, Twitter has retreated, trading today just over the $40 mark. It traded under that threshold last week.
In the face of that slide, and despite a massive share-price correction — read: selloff — following its fourth-quarter earnings, Twitter is scheduled to report its first quarter earnings before May 5, the date when a large number of its shares owned by employees will unlock. Unlocked shares are available for sale on the public markets.
The one thing all humans have in common is that each of us wants to be happy, says Brother David Steindl-Rast, a monk and interfaith scholar. And happiness, he suggests, is born from gratitude. An inspiring lesson in slowing down, looking where you窶re going, and above all, being grateful.
Marie Claire found itself in the middle of a Twitter firestorm on Wednesday, after tweeting a picture of Kendall Jenner wearing her hair partially cornrowed and praising the style as being "bold" and "epic."

Life often takes us where we never thought we would go. If you were to say to me years ago on Maui one day I窶d be living in Louisiana and then the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, I would have grabbed my windsurfing equipment and guffawed.
But here I am in south Mississippi feeling incredibly grateful and happy. Oh there was a ridiculous amounts of complaining discussion and unhappiness soul-searching along the way. Now when I look back it reminds me of a bumpy car ride to an unknown destination. When you finally arrive, you get out and take it all in, forgetting the horrible road conditions along the way
A powerful blast has struck a chemical factory in central Japan, killing at least two and leaving 16 injured, reports local press.
The incident happened at a chemical plant owned by Mitsubishi in Yokkaichi, Mie Prefecture. The factory produces silicon materials for the international firm.
"There was some explosion triggered by some sort of chemical reaction during plant operations," said a police spokesman in Mie, central Japan to Australian news outlet news.com.au.
"It seems a number of people were killed or injured," he said, adding they were not sure of exact numbers.
When the Life Extension Foundation® was founded in 1980, new members would sometimes inquire if we could refer them to physicians knowledgeable in the field of "anti-aging" medicine.
The challenge back then was that there was no formal training program that would enable doctors to become anti-aging specialists. This presented a barrier for Life Extension® members seeking natural ways to balance their hormones and accessing longevity-enhancing prescription medications (like metformin and deprenyl).
In 1991, a small group of about 13 doctors met to see if there was a possibility of attracting enough licensed physicians to form a professional society that would educate and accredit medical doctors in the anti-aging field.
One wealthy Life Extension member donated access to his hotel so that this group could host annual seminars to educate doctors about scientific findings that you read about each month in Life Extension Magazine®.
Out of that meeting in 1991 was born the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, which has since grown to 26,000 physician, scientific and health practitioner members from over 120 nations.
The initial American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine education seminars were held each December and attracted only a few hundred medical professionals. Enrollment at these professional education seminars has since exploded and expanded to include major countries of the world where physicians are eager to learn how to keep their patients from aging too fast.
What should be gratifying for Life Extension members is the growing acceptance among celebrity household names of employing aggressive interventions to slow and reverse pathological aging processes.
The annual World Congress of Anti-Aging Medicine will continue its long-standing tradition of accrediting medical doctors in the specialty of anti-aging medicine. At this year's conference in Las Vegas, they will also host some of Hollywood's most recognized celebrities.
What follows is information from the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) to announce their December 2013 annual accreditation conference in Las Vegas:
When people come down with cancer, they submit to regimens of drugs and, if need be, harsh radiation treatments. But what if those patients could forego all of this and ward off their cancers with their own white blood cells? An experimental white-blood-cell-transfusion approach that Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj is developing might make that feasible.
Dr. Maharaj is a hematologist and oncologist at the South Florida Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant Institute, a cancer treatment center that applies stem-cell therapies to cancers that have not responded well to other treatments. He is working on taking white blood cells from healthy donors and fusing them into patients with cancer, so that the transfused cells can stimulate the patients’ immune systems and enable them to ward off the cancers on their own.
His concept has precedents—doctors successfully treat some other types of infections by transfusing white blood cells—and the initial experimental results are promising. He will need more time, however, and much more funding before his treatment approach is ready. Dr. Maharaj described his research to Rick Docksai, associate editor for THE FUTURIST, in the following interview.
Just as a former member of Anonymous accuses the United States government of coercing hackers to do their dirty work in America’s cyberwars, the sentencing hearing for the group’s alleged ex-ringleader has been mysteriously delayed yet again.
One day after a statement was released by convicted Anonymous member Jeremy Hammond from behind bars, news has surfaced that the hacker-turned-informant who compromised the underground movement for the FBI and helped facilitate Hammond’s arrest will remain free for now.
Hector Xavier Monsegur, a single father from New York involved with a number of high-profile hacks carried out by Anonymous and its offshoots, had been scheduled to be sentenced Friday in Manhattan. That morning, however, his sentencing hearing was revealed to be postponed until October.

Wednesday, July 31, 2013. Live stream Health edition of Social Chats with Tonya Scholz and Sandra Lopez of Delivering Image. The ladies chat with LifeExtensionist, hiphop singer/writer, Maitreya One about his RocketHub #crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to pay producers for some original tracks, mixing & mastering, artwork for the album cover, website, and making digital distribution arrangements.
The contract will provide S.C. taxpayers with credit monitoring, change-of-address monitoring, payday-loan monitoring and “Internet surveillance,” including “scanning black market or underground websites” to detect fraudulent activity. The contract also will give identity-theft insurance to every taxpayer to cover “identity-restoration costs, losses due to identity theft, lost wages and legal fees and expenses” of up to $1 million. The insurance would not have a deductible
