We are amidst the 4th Industrial Revolution, and technology is evolving faster than ever. Understanding the key trends will allow people and businesses to prepare and grasp the opportunities.
Here is the list of seven most imminent technologies:
Artificial Intelligence as a Service (AIaaS) is the third-party offering of artificial intelligence (AI) outsourcing. AI as a service allows individuals and companies to experiment with AI for various purposes without large initial investment and with lower risk.
2. 5G data networks:
The 5th generation of mobile internet connectivity is going to give us super-fast download and upload speeds as well as more stable connections.
3. Autonomous Driving:
Tesla chief Elon Musk has said he expects his company to create a truly “complete” autonomous vehicle by this year. Google’s sister company Waymo has just completed a trial of autonomous taxis in California.
4. Personalized and predictive medicine:
Our ability to capture data from wearable devices such as smartwatches will give us the ability to increasingly predict and treat health issues in people even before they experience any symptoms.
5. Computer Vision:
In computer terms, “vision” involves systems that are able to identify items, places, objects, or people from visual images – those collected by a camera or sensor.
6. Extended Reality:
Extended Reality (XR) is a catch-all term that covers several new and emerging technologies being used to create more immersive digital experiences. More specifically, it refers to virtual, augmented, and mixed reality.
7. Blockchain Technology:
Blockchain is a specific type of database. It differs from a typical database in the way it stores information; blockchains store data in blocks that are then chained together. As new data comes in it is entered into a fresh block.
