THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY is the exclusive and eternal ownership of every student in the world. ''OneShare-Piece-Peace''

GOD WILLING : The World of 2030, will be very, very similar today, but run more seamlessly. There will be millions and billions of students on The World Students Society : all in the service of building a great world for Mankind. 

''May Almighty, God, bless your efforts with every success! And may every future endeavor be better than the starting ones. Ameen!''

WANT A BIG BUZZWORD FOR THE next decade? Try ''nematode''. The nematode worm is  primitive creature that likes to live in rotting vegetation.

Its power being harnessed NemaMetrix, a personalised medicine venture that started at the university of Oregon.

NemaMetrix's scientists take a human gene for a disease such as, say, breast cancer, epilepsy or Alzheimer's and insert it into a nematode's genome. The worm can then be used as a human proxy for testing drugs or new treatments.

NemaMetrix was recognised by the Obama administration in 2014 for developing ''revolutionary life science platform technologies''. ''In 10 years,'' says Portland Seed Fund's MD, Jenn Lynch, ''doctors won't hand you a bottle of 100mg pills and say 'take one a day'. They will be able to use your nematode proxy to give precise individualised dosages just for you.''

MEANWHILE, at Intel's 20,000 engineer campus outside Portland, Richard Uhlig, director of Intel Labs, is most hopeful for something I had not heard of : probabilistic computing, or next-gen artificial intelligence  - but actually intelligent, which, ironically, AI isn't very at the moment.

AI learns laboriously what things are. Show it 5,000 cat photos and it will finally, dimly, recognise cats. Probabilistic computing works more like a child's brain; show a probabilistic computer a cat once or twice, and it works out that cat-like things are probably cats.''

What benefits might probabilistic computing might bring by 2030? One thing would be much more natural prosthetic limbs. Uhlig explains how teaching a robot to shake hands can be tricky.

''Teaching it to apply the right pressure to a fragile hand is not easy,'' he says. It is computationally very intensive and needs to be done more naturally.

So we borrow from nature, observing how brain works, and build a computing system that look like that.'' Also on the cards if probabilistic computing takes off? Things like self-driving cars with the sense to know that if a ball rolls out into residential street, there maybe a child chasing it.

I have long been speaking with Marc Demarest, a brilliant Portland-based future thinker, since 1995. Back then he accurately predicted, for instance, everything Amazon now does. I ask him what he sees for 2030?

Interestingly, Demarest is more ''futuristic'' than the younger technologists I met. ''The hardware we have is now dead,'' he says. ''I see the meat/silicon interface - device implants - as the future as early as early as 2030. The two of us may not get to them, but we will see other people get them. The boundary between biological sciences and the technical sciences is going to collapse.''

What does Demarest mean by this? Nothing less than the Internet-connected devices being hardwired into the brain. The idea of the 2030 you starting, effectively, to be a cyborg stands far-fetched, but Demarest points to example already tested of installing tech directly into our nervous system.

As early as 2013, scientists in Gothenberg, Sweden, wired a prosthetic lower arm to an amputees nerves, muscle and bone, allowing him to experience sensations and to move the arm using his mind.

He returned to his job as a truck driver. Scientists from Stanford and Seoul National universities last year reported developing artificial nerve fibre from polymers. There are many more experiments.

It will not just be a case of manipulation actions in Dearest's 2030 scenario. ''We`will also simply  'know' the whole Internet Information will just present itself. The experience will feel like a pure meat moment. But your 5G implant-assisted brains will be searching the entire database of human knowledge to do so.''
