Incredible AI technology shows what cities across UK will look like in 2050

Incredible AI technology shows what cities across UK will look like in 2050

You'll want to check out Glasgow's surprisingly futuristic update.

If you’ve ever wondered what the UK will look like in years to come, artificial intelligence (AI) technology might have provided us with an answer.

While flying cars and robots patrolling the streets are not on the horizon just yet, AI has predicted a fair few fascinating changes to the country’s major cities over the next 27 years.

Generative AI Midjourney has predicted London, Cardiff Bay and Glasgow will be subject to a number of futuristic adaptations by 2050, with the UK capital featuring a sleek 'walking only' bridge.

Londoners would no doubt love a pedestrian bridge like this.

Pictures created by the innovative AI technology shows London with a large tunnel structure built over the River Thames. People are pictured walking inside, while a glass roof appears to give pedestrians a sweeping view of the capital’s skyline.

The image also shows The Shard in the background and a rather dark and gloomy sky overhead - so not too much has changed.

Meanwhile over in Cardiff Bay, AI predicts that a beautiful marina will become the city's centrepiece.

Cardiff Bay's new marina looks suitably swanky.

The area is forecast to feature a Sydney Opera House-style building presiding over the bay, which is home to a collection of boats and yachts.

And finally, AI Midjourney takes us to Glasgow, where one of the city’s most historic landmarks has received a futuristic update.

AI anticipates the roof of the famous Glasgow Cathedral will be adapted, featuring a huge glass dome nestled between the building’s steeples.

AI has given Glasgow Cathedral a futuristic update.

It comes as AI has dominated news headlines in recent weeks. In November, the world’s first-ever major summit on AI safety took place, where political and tech leaders discussed our possible responses to the society-changing technology.

And earlier this year, tech giant and billionaire Elon Musk joined Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak and Skype co-founder, Jaan Tallinn, in signing an open letter to demand that labs training AI systems halt for at least six months.

"Recent months have seen AI labs locked in an out-of-control race to develop and deploy ever more powerful digital minds that no-one – not even their creators – can understand, predict or reliably control," the letter read.

"Powerful AI systems should be developed only once we are confident that their effects will be positive and their risks will be manageable."

While futuristic adaptations to cities around the country might not be seen anytime soon, AI is fast becoming a feature of modern-day society - but can we keep up?
