Imagine a world with excess of 10 billion people within the next 50 years…

Imagine a world with excess of 10 billion people within the next 50 years. China and India already have populations of  1.3 Billion people each (roughly). If you assume 40% of those populations form a highly skilled/highly educated workforce you are talking about in excess of 560 Million people – or roughly just under two times the entire population of the U.S.A.
These are highly skilled, qualified individuals with Math, Sciences, Engineering type qualifications. Where do you think we are going to harvest these skills from?
Deep learning, machine learning, Nano Technology, Robotics are already here and either beta testing or in production. Check out advanced Robots that Boston Dynamics has already been demonstrating. Yes indeed…the writing is on the wall.Unfortunately most of the population growth will happen in the less developed regions. We in the  Western world needs to realize that ‘American Idol’ and  ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ does nothing for our competitive edge!
