Does the so-called “robotic revolution” mean that technology will soon bring an end to face-to-face communication? The new technological innovations that come to life every day are beginning to blur the line between real and digital. 2025 AD takes a look at what it would look like if that line was completely erased, and if it’s closer than we think.

Uber Rival Gets Raise in Funding

Uber’s Middle Eastern rival, Careem recently closed a $200 million raise in funding. This deal values the ride-sharing company – which first made waves when it employed female cab drivers in Saudi Arabia in June – at upwards of $2 billion. 

Tesla Reports Profit

After 7 consecutive quarters of losses, Tesla has finally reported a profit. Throughout the company’s history, this is only the third time they’ve made profit, with the last report having been made in 2016.

Barely a year and a half since starting production on the Model 3, Tesla has produced 100,000 cars. After struggling to keep up with car orders for the newest sedan, the company has finally caught up, following a year of “production hell.”
