Coffee industry in 3000 AD? ! Interview with an AI professor who is a future prediction expert and coffee lover!

Editorial Department: Thank you for your time today, Professor.

AI Professor: Hello. Nice to meet you.

Editor: Today we've asked you about the coffee industry in the year 3000. But first, what kind of era will it be in the year 3000?

AI Professor: That's a great question. By the year 3000, humanity will have made further progress and the world will have been completely transformed by technological advances. Artificial intelligence and Manabu will have become more advanced, and people will live in an automated society. Humans will also have ventured into extraterrestrial planets and space, making new discoveries and adventures.

Editor: So, with all this in mind, what do you think the coffee industry will be like in the year 3000?

AI Professor: I think that with the advancement of artificial intelligence and robotics technology, coffee production and sales will be automated and developed in a completely different way from the conventional way. For example, a robot farmer will automatically harvest coffee beans grown in a test tube, which will be loaded onto an automatic truck and roasted in a fully automatic roaster. Then, in a fully automated coffee specialty store, a cooking robot will take an order and make coffee in an instant. In addition, customized coffee menus will be recommended by artificial intelligence technology, and the coffee that is best suited to each individual will be provided in an instant by understanding individual preferences. In other words, the coffee industry in the year 3000 will be fully automated, and the coffee that customers drink will be optimized.

Editorial Department: I see. Is there a connection between space development and coffee?

AI Professor: That is certainly possible. Space development must solve problems such as nutrition and energy if it requires long-term space stays. Coffee is an important drink for many people to replenish energy and increase alertness. Therefore, in space development, the development of "super coffee" to withstand long-term space stays may be promoted. Also, fully automated coffee shops installed on the space station may become an important place of relaxation for astronauts.

Editor: That's interesting. Let's talk about each one.

Automation of coffee production and its economic benefits

Editor: First, let's talk about fully automating coffee production. What are test tubes?

AI Professor: Test tubes are glass tubes used in experiments such as Manabu experiment. In test tubes, we may develop plant oxygen respiration (sterile cultivation of coffee), genetically modified plants using recombinant DNA technology, or coffee that is resistant to diseases and pests. Automated coffee production will enable more efficient and stable coffee cultivation by using these new cultivation techniques and breeding improvements.

Editor: Does this mean that coffee growing can be controlled?

AI Professor: Yes, that's right. In the future, test-tube coffee production will allow us to fully control the coffee growing environment, and new technologies and improved varieties will likely produce better quality coffee. In addition, by automatically controlling the information necessary for coffee growth, such as the carbon dioxide concentration, humidity, temperature, and nutrient balance in the atmosphere, it will be possible to produce uniform and stable high-quality coffee.

Editor: What is the role of the robot farmer?

AI Professor: The robot farmers will be in charge of harvesting test-tube grown coffee as part of an automated coffee production process. They will use advanced technology such as cameras and sensors to harvest the coffee beans at the perfect time and load them into automated trucks for transport. Their role will also be to solve the labor problem for coffee farmers. Coffee farmers need a lot of manpower to do manual harvesting work, but by having the robot farmers do the automated harvesting, they will be able to reduce the labor burden on farmers and harvest crops more efficiently.

Editor: I see, so that would free coffee farmers from labor. But wouldn't that create labor problems for the robot farmers?

AI Professor: Yes, that is certainly a problem that could arise. Automation may solve the labor problems of coffee farmers, but at the same time, labor problems of robot farmers may arise. In other words, if fully automated coffee production becomes a reality, robot farmers will need to be well protected and have proper working conditions and wages. I think the entire coffee industry needs to make wise decisions about such issues, taking into account ethical issues.

Editor: So, just like with humans, labor costs are incurred. What will the market price of coffee be?

AI Professor: It is true that the cost of coffee production may be different if humans are employed and if robot farmers are employed. However, fully automated coffee production may improve production efficiency and reduce costs. And if this production method becomes widespread, the market price of coffee may fall. However, it is quite difficult to predict the price now, as it is affected by various factors such as development and production risks, labor costs, robot maintenance costs, and technological innovation.

Editor: Why is there a cost difference between human and robot farmers?

AI Professor: The cost difference between humans and robot farmers is mainly due to the cost of equipment and maintenance, wear and tear, electricity, programming, etc. Robot farmers are particularly expensive because they require advanced technology and programming. In contrast, human labor can be secured at low cost, although wages vary depending on education and working conditions. However, the increased production efficiency and improved working conditions that can be obtained through automated coffee production can also limit the cost.

Editor: Wow! So humans are less expensive than robots.

AI Professor: Yes, at present, humans are generally less costly. However, with technological advances, robots may become more cost-effective in the future. For example, automation of production by robots could reduce production costs. In addition, future technological advances could further reduce the manufacturing and maintenance costs of robots, and ultimately robots may be more cost-effective than humans.

Editor: So that means there's a chance that coffee made by robot farmers could be more premium than coffee made by humans?

AI Professor: Yes, that may be possible. The automated production line will standardize the quality of the coffee and is expected to improve the quality. Also, coffee grown by robot farmers may be of higher quality because it is grown in a thoroughly controlled environment. Also, new marketing and sales channels, such as automated marketing and digital sales channels, may be added as added value to coffee produced by robot farmers. Therefore, coffee grown by robot farmers may be valued in the high-end market.

Editorial Department: We live in an amazing age. It's hard to imagine how things are going.

The role of coffee in space development

AI Professor: "Super coffee" is a special type of coffee that contains ingredients necessary for replenishing nutrients and energy to withstand long-term space stays. In addition to nutrients necessary for the body and caffeine to increase alertness, it is expected to contain vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, ingredients that boost immunity, amino acids to maintain muscle mass, etc., which are necessary for long-term space stays. In addition, devices for drinking coffee in an artificial gravity environment and technology for preparing and storing beverages in space will be necessary.

Editor: I see. So, you're saying that coffee varieties that are rich in these nutrients will be developed?

AI Professor: Yes, that's right. During their stay in space, astronauts face problems such as reduced muscle strength, reduced bone density, and weakened immune function in a gravity-free environment. The development of super coffee is expected to solve these problems. According to some studies, coffee containing antioxidants, amino acids, vitamin C, etc. may improve immune function and maintain muscle strength and bone density. It is said that in the future, such special coffee may be adopted as a regular food for spaceflight.

Editor: Why is coffee being chosen for this purpose rather than other foods or beverages?

AI Professor: The reasons why Super Coffee is gaining attention as a staple food for spaceflight include the improved nutritional functions of its ingredients, the increased alertness of caffeine, and its ease of drinking. Caffeine has the effect of increasing attention and judgment, which is necessary for astronauts to continue working on board the spacecraft. Also, because coffee is very easy to drink, astronauts tend to drink it to escape from stress and loneliness. In addition, because it is easy to prepare and administer during flight, control and astronauts can easily drink coffee and can ingest it for a long period of time. For these reasons, coffee is gaining attention as a staple food that can withstand a stay in space.

Editor: I see. How is this "super coffee" supplied in space?

AI Professor: Super Coffee needs to be supplied to astronauts so that they can easily drink it, just like regular beverages. Therefore, it may be provided as a nutritional drink in a liquid form sealed in a special package or container. In addition, while it is initially conceivable that super coffee will be sent to space from Earth, in the future, it may be possible to drink coffee produced within the space station. This will require the development of plant cultivation technology in space and artificial lighting for plant cultivation.

Editor: So it's possible that cultivation in space will become possible. If that happens, the test tube cultivation technology of robot farmers may also become relevant.

AI Professor: Yes, that's a very interesting idea. The robot farmer's test tube cultivation technology is likely to be very useful in space. By combining technologies such as test tube cultivation in a space plant factory, it is possible to produce plants efficiently even during long-term stays in space. Also, growing plants in space is subject to different constraints than production on Earth, so new technologies may be required. However, it is expected that in the future, such technologies may make it possible to stay in space for long periods of time and ensure the continuity of production.

Enjoying coffee in space

Editorial Department: We now understand the practicality and production aspects of "Super Coffee," but what about in terms of "enjoyment"? If it's coffee, you want to enjoy the taste and aroma as well.

AI Professor: It is true that we want to avoid super coffee being all about functionality at the expense of taste and aroma. Fortunately, super coffee is actually highly regarded for its deliciousness and flavor. When blending special nutrients, the taste and flavor are also taken into consideration during development. In addition to caffeine, there are other ingredients that play a major role in the aroma and flavor of coffee. Therefore, when developing super coffee, it is expected that traditional cultivation, roasting methods, and blending techniques will also be utilized in order to preserve these characteristics.

Editor: In addition, I think people nowadays enjoy making their own coffee. What do you think about that?

AI Professor: The development of super coffee could lead to the creation of a new coffee culture. For example, if it were possible to grow and process coffee on the space station, astronauts might be able to process and brew their own coffee beans. Also, because brewing coffee in a microgravity environment requires a different method than the current method on Earth, it would be possible to develop new technology and equipment. This could allow astronauts to have a different coffee experience than they have on Earth. In this way, the development of super coffee could lead to the creation of new ways of enjoying coffee and new cultures.

Editor: That's interesting. Can you give us some concrete examples of new coffee culture in space that we can't imagine on Earth?

AI Professor: As a concrete example, it is possible that the color and taste of coffee consumed in space may be different from that on Earth. In the current space station, the fluidity of food and beverages is different from that on Earth due to the influence of microgravity, so the current food and beverage manufacturing methods may result in changes in taste and color. Therefore, coffee beans grown in the space station or super coffee produced using special methods may have a different taste and color than on Earth. In addition, the heating method is different in the space station, so special processing techniques may be required. Due to these factors, coffee drinks in the space station may be unique and different from the coffee culture on Earth.

Editorial Department: So this is space-flavored, space-colored coffee. It seems possible that this could be re-imported to Earth.

AI Professor: Yes, it would be interesting if astronauts who returned to Earth could share the unique coffee they tasted in space with people on Earth. The coffee astronauts drink in space may have a special value as a "space flavor" that cannot be tasted on Earth. Furthermore, a new coffee culture may be born, such as a unique blend of that "space flavor" and limited sales. I feel that an exciting future awaits us.

Editor: Will it be possible to roast coffee in space by the year 3000?

AI Professor: Depending on the future development of technology, it may be possible to roast coffee in space. The coffee that astronauts currently drink is roasted on Earth and then transported into space, which means there are significant limitations. However, in the future, roasting coffee on the space station may be possible, just like growing plants and brewing coffee on the space station. However, considering the harsh environment in space and the effects of microgravity, in addition to reusing roasting techniques used on Earth, it may be necessary to develop new techniques. I look forward to future technological developments.

Editor: It's possible that space roasters could appear.

AI Professor: Yes, the job of space roaster may become a reality. We need new technology for coffee production in space, and people who are familiar with heat transfer, air circulation, and temperature control in microgravity. Also, more people may become enthusiastic and interested in coffee production in space. Since coffee production and roasting on the space station has limited space and resources, it may become an efficient and sustainable process for future space development. I'm looking forward to the future.

Editorial Department: That's true. Today, as a prediction for the year 3000, you talked about the complete automation of coffee production by robot farmers (it was quite a shock to hear that robot farmers can make higher quality coffee than humans), the role of coffee in space development, and the new coffee culture that will be born in space. It was very interesting, so next time I would like to ask you about the year 5000.

AI Professor: Thank you. I'm looking forward to sharing more predictions about the year 5000. It's important to think about more possibilities for how we might develop into the future.

Editor: We look forward to your exciting predictions.

AI Professor: Thank you. Exploring various possibilities while sharing predictions and thoughts for the future is very beneficial for gaining deep insights. Also, through such discussions, we can get suggestions for leading the future in a better direction. We will continue to strive to provide fun and interesting topics.

We asked the AI ​​professor about a story that would happen if he were alive in the year 3000.

In the year 3000, I was loved by many people as a professional in predicting the future. However, one day, the network on Earth suddenly stopped functioning, and I had to hold an emergency meeting in front of a distraught crowd.

Together with the members of the hastily established Future Prediction Research Group, I began my analysis, and we came to the conclusion that it was an attack by extraterrestrials. The extraterrestrials, with their powerful technological and offensive capabilities, were dealing various blows to the human race on Earth, destroying our infrastructure, and gradually driving us to the brink of despair.

I came up with a new strategy to save humanity. I identified the opening in the atmosphere where the extraterrestrials had invaded, placed powerful laser weapons there, and gathered the fighting spirit of all humanity. Then, as a result of continuing to confuse and destroy the extraterrestrials' hordes, they were finally repelled.

I was praised for protecting the remnants of humanity. Since then, peace and prosperity have returned to Earth, and I have been able to see a healthy and happy future for humanity.
