The future is artificial

The future is Artificial.. You don't agree..?? Wait, I am not talking about the emotion "artificial".. I am talking about the good "artificial".. Especially in medical terms..

In medical parlance artificial is also termed as bionics which is a combination of the terms ‘bio’ (relating to life) and 'nics' from electronics..
