This is what Dubai will look like in 2050
Kaspersky Lab’s multimedia project Earth 2050 project predicts the world in thirty years
Kaspersky Lab’s multimedia project, Earth 2050, has now been updated to include a panorama of Dubai.
The 360o panorama provides a futuristic image of what the world will look like in over 30 years’ time. Initially driven by content from researchers, this next stage of the project is inviting anyone to share their vision of the future, and has launched upload and sharing functions on its website to help.
The project has received 1 million page views in the past nine months, says Kaspersky Lab. The Earth 2050 project has also been awarded the Red Dot Best of the Best award.
“We are trying to get a better understanding of what users actually think is a positive and realistic vision of the future. With these new changes to the project, we are encouraging much more feedback than before, and in recent months we’ve seen that people are really interested in sharing their visions and opinions," said Vladislav Biryukov, head of consumer social media at Kaspersky Lab.
The project also now includes a feature that allows users to rate futurologist predictions on the site, and help others understand which predictions might be more realistic than others. Single predictions, panoramas, graphical works or author profiles can now be shared through social channels to make it easier for users to exchange ideas with each other.
When visiting the 2050.earth website, users will also be able to see tags showing predictions of interest. All graphical works are also collected on a special subpage entitled Art. The more an individual votes, the more information is available to them and other users.
