heheh. just having a little fun....
i do feel we are on the brink of the next "big thing" or, one that "makes the books" with our humanity

do you think movies like interstellar, chappie(just a few new ones to give example) are preparing us for what could be reality ?
three elements that have been and now thanks to technology are being more effectively introduced as something that can happen:

artificial intelligence,
expanding our civilizations to live on other planets/space stations
or different forms of life living amongst us(alien races)

and just for fun....
assuming we had the technology:
if you had the choice to live on another planet or on a space station- would you ? why or why not ?

I would be reluctant to live in a station, mainly because of the food and health conditions. Unless the station could replicate earth environment and produce fresh fruits and vegetables.
On a planet it would be more interesting, but it depends on the planet...

‘Minority Report’ Artificial Intelligence machine can identify 2 BILLION people in seconds
A LEADING tech company has developed an Artificial Intelligence machine that can identify two billion people in a matter of seconds.

By Rachel O'Donoghue / Published 12th December 2017

Yitu Technology has made an AI algorithm that can connect to millions of surveillance cameras and instantly recognise people.

The company – based in Shanghai, China – developed Dragonfly Eye to scan through millions of photographs that have been logged in the country’s national database.

This means it has a collection of 1.8 billion photos on file, including visitors to the country and those taken at ports and airports.

...
It is thought it could be used to identify people at ATM machines in the future, making carrying a bank card a thing of the past.

He added: “People waste time discus­sing whether it’s all hype or the real thing, but facial recogni­tion already shows how real it can get. In 2015, AI had already beaten humans in face-verification tasks.

“Our algor­ithm is more accurate than customs officials at telling whether two images show the same person. It can even find a subject among millions of others using a 25 or 30-year-old image.

“And in the past two years, the performance of machines has increased by 1,000 times.”
