If you are very interested in this issue, I recommend reading the book by Yuval Noah Harari "A Brief History of the Future". The subject is disassembled to pieces, the book is considered a bestseller in certain circles.

A bit of spoilers: you can already see where everything will go. Universal automation + artificial intelligence = almost complete replacement of leather bags with robots, mechanisms, neural networks and algorithms. Little people have an unconditional basic income. Based on your interaction with gadgets, the latter will collect more and more information about you. No personal space and secrets will remain. Infa from all requests to Google, from charges from the map, from GPS and street cameras is analyzed and systematized. Virtual assistants will know more about you than you yourself and will give sensible advice on everything - up to the choice in your personal life. Progress will reach not only loaders and drivers, by that time the neural network algorithms will give a huge head start to any psychotherapist or surgeon - after all, considering the case of this particular person, they can instantly operate with the entire array of data on all similar cases, throughout medical practice.

It is logical that (sadly enough) the natural human sex will be less and less - AI will come up with more and more sophisticated substitutes

Well, in general, something like this. If earlier, of course, some Trump or Poo does not accidentally throw a felt boot on a nuclear remote control

I have already written an answer to a question that is close in meaning.

In fact, we have no idea how life will change in connection with technical progress, since we cannot even imagine which direction it will turn and what it will offer us. Let me give you a couple of examples from the conclusions of analysts of the past.

Mid-90s of the last century. Boom in stereos and quality sound. All major market players are starting to chase sound quality. Hi-Fi is already just consumer goods. Hi-end also does not suit many. They promote the transition from stereo to multi-channel sound. And what do we see today? People listen to 99% of music in digital recording, not even in stereo, but through a single speaker of the phone in mono sound.

Mid-2000s. A similar situation with the clarity of the image on TVs. We pass from simple CRTs to flat ones. From them with super black. Further to HD 720 formats, then HD1080 and 4K and huge screens. And what is in reality? Most films are generally watched on smartphones.

With more or less some certainty, we can only talk about trends that last thousands of years. That is, the gradual smooth humanization of society. The increase in life expectancy due to the development of medicine. Increasing population mobility. Increasing control over each individual.

Scientific and technological progress will contribute to these phenomena, and how and in which direction it will turn seems to me absolutely unknown.
