10. In Store 3D Fabricator - This job involves 3D printing objects on demand in a retail environment.  Current service bureau approaches with online ordering may be more likely.  Many also predict that 3D printers will be ubiquitious, and everyone will own them.  It may even be posible to 3D print all, or most of the 3D printer itself.  Arguably this job already exists.

9. Domestic Robotician - Someone who supplies and maintains domestic robos in the future may have this job.  Robot repairman at your service!

8. AI Trainer - Paging Dr. Chandra.  This occupation involves preparing 'young' artificial intelligence systems for real-world work in a decided field, and to become sentient.

7. Transhumanist Surgeon - This occupation involves extending people's bodies beyond current biological limits.  This may involve all of medicine, so it is not necessarily clear this would be just one profession.

6. Nanobot Immune System Augmenter - For this job, closely related to number 7, the practice involves using nanobots to cure disease or otherwise augment patients.

5. Human DNA Programmer - Also similar to the previous two items, the DNA progammer cures disease and augments people by re-programming their DNA.

4. Cosmetic Bioprinter - Plastic surgery of the future may involve this cosmetic 3D printer that makes people look younger, or otherwise upgrades their appearance.

Vertical Farming

3. Vertical Farmer - For future food production, farmers in high-rise structures may grow crops and raises animals to support an ever-increasing population.

2. Space Elevator Attendant - For many this technology for bringing people and cargo to orbit cannot come fast enough.

1. Climate Engineer - Why be a weather reporter, when you can actually cause the weather.  Geoengineering, according to Barnatt can be used to control global warming.

The Story of the Chessboard


The classic parable of how the inventor of the game of chess used his knowledge of exponential growth to trick an emperor is commonly used to explain the staggering and accelerating growth of technology. The 33rd square on the chessboards represents the first step into the second half of the chessboard, where exponential growth takes off.

33rd Square explores technological progress in AI, robotics, genomics, neuroscience, nanotechnology, art, design and the future as humanity encroaches on The Singularity.
