Quite a lot happens in the world of technology every day. The creative minds out there keep coming with new gadgets that can bring a considerable change in life.
Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and others which looked magical, are now in the mainstream.
But not every idea flies off (or gets the required earth). So, let’s find out what are the top tech trends that we can expect in the near future.
1. Artificial Intelligence
The world is going automated. There is less of human intervention, the computers are scaling up the productivity, and the credit goes to the AI – Artificial Intelligence. From residing in the factories, robots are now coming to help us at home, all thanks to AI.
The technology still needs to grow, and from repetitive tasks like in assembling, you can see more automation in the complex working scenario. Automated systems for making food and in driverless cars and drones are already getting tested.
2. Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality (VR) along with Augmented Reality (AR) is already changing the way we get entertained. We have a number of accessories helping you get into a virtual-real world, and people are accepting the technology.
You remember Pokémon Go, right? Whether you played it or not, you probably heard about this Android game based on AR, through the news.
Although still in the early stages, VR/AR have found their usage in entertainment, health, sports and also in aviation industries. And there are more to come.
Blockchain became the talk of the town (world?) after the Bitcoin boom in 2017. It is the technology which supports Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies. However, this distributed ledger system of maintaining records proved its capability in finance too.
But because of its secured distributed technology, tech blogs around the world predict different implementation of blockchain in the real world.
Blockchain can help to keep records in the transport industry, healthcare and may also see its use for recording votes.
4. Machine Learning
A part of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning is a tech helping machines ‘learn’ the way it needs to do the things. There are some applications like the virtual assistants and also in AI, which uses machine learning. Companies like Google and Microsoft are trying to incorporate it into more of its services with the view to improve the user experience.
5. Internet of Things
Internet of Things (IoT) is the interconnection of household tech with the help of the Internet. There are a large number of appliances that you can connect and control through your mobile. But there isn’t a platform to enjoy the seamless experience now.
With companies like Amazon, Apple and Amazon coming into play, we may see some integrated IoT user experience soon.
6. Voice Control
You voice control a lot of tasks on your mobile, isn’t it? Siri can help you get some jobs done, Google Assistant finds nearby restaurants for you, and then there also is Cortana.
But wouldn’t it be amazing if you can lock your home remotely or switch on the air-conditioning a few minutes before you come home?
With some centralized IoT user interface development, it will soon be possible.
