Average Life Expectancy in S. Korea Predicted to be 120 by 2045

The Korea Internet and Security Agency has predicted that autonomous vehicles, housekeeping robots and industrial robots will become commonplace in 2045 due to the development of artificial intelligence and robot technology.
In a book published on Wednesday, the agency said the country's conscription system will be replaced by the voluntary military system as combat robots and drones will provide national defense.
The average life expectancy is projected to increase to 120 years thanks to artificial organs and precise diagnostics.  
However, the advance in technology and increased use of robots will likely reduce the roles of humans, posing a threat to the labor market.
The book said that spreading false information on the Internet through social network service sites may emerge as a serious problem in the future.
