We are living in a post-digital world now. Tech items will be used more than ever in the coming days. The business of digital services and related products will be booming in the years to come. The global annual spending on technologies and services is about to hit $2.3 trillion soon. Today, we will discuss the top four technology for the future.
The future is all about artificial intelligence, and there is no end to the usages of AI products. AI products make life more accessible than ever. During the outbreak of Covid-19, we see situations where one person cannot meet another, but AI robots can. Besides, we are familiar with AlterEgo that can read minds, and we have witnessed Sophia that can act like a human. These are just the beginning, and the best is yet to come. Companies like Amazon, Domino, Doordash, etc., are already experimenting with delivery via robots and drones. Still, some people are concerned with their safety with these robots. However, AI robots are not that powerful yet to feel threatened by them.
Autonomous driving is the future of driving. Humans make mistakes, but AI (Artificial Intelligence) does not. Every year huge people die in road accidents around the world. No matter how safely you drive, you cannot control other drivers. Thus, the idea of automation came into the driving arena. That is why companies like Tesla, Waymo, Alphabet, etc., are into this. Their objective is the same right now, i.e., to craft impeccable autonomous vehicles.
These automated cars are a blessing for humans as they are full of valuable features like automatic braking, automatic lane changing, and so on. Similarly, there are certain situations when it is tough to make quick decisions in the blink of an eye. Automated cars can make the right decision in those complex situations as well. However, these cars are not legal everywhere yet. Authorities are considering a lot of things before giving the final signal. Over that, significant tweaks are required in our current infrastructure to make it perfect for automated cars.
Edge computing is the bridge between data storage and computation.Most organizations’ prime concern is to deal with the laggy approach that affects the whole management of the operations. Experts tried many things to bring efficiency and fasten the process of computing. Finally, edge computing comes as a rescuer. Edge computing brings data storage and computation closer to the business to save bandwidth and response time.
For example, automated vehicles need faster processing of data as for every millisecond matters. The data processing time can be significantly improvedby confining data analysis to the edge. Currently, edge computing is fueled by IoT (Internet of Things) devices such as indoor cameras, wireless smoke detector, smart coffeemakers, etc. Experts believe that edge computing will create an unstructured architecture over a set of distributed cloud services soon. One such example is the Amazon package delivery system done by drones.
Doing personal profiling becomes so accessible nowadays, thanks to social media platforms. There was a time when profiling someone was a very costly and time-consuming task. However, those days are gone away, and third-party data can help us to grow business in a short time. There is a saying that Google knows us better than we know about ourselves.
Nowadays, we do not have to search for our target audience; ad platforms will do it for us. All we have to do is push our products to the audience. Now, if we see the whole thing from a consumer’s point of view, it is not pleasant at all.
Finally, these technology trends will rule the future for sure. It does not matter whether we like it or not; we have to live with them anyway.
