Technology is like God, the knowledge of techniques and the skills related to it, the methods and processes can be used in the production of goods or services or in scientific research and thus technology is showing us the way ahead. It is the branch of knowledge that is used in engineering or applied science. Today it has become the most important part of our daily lives. Without it, we will surely be helpless, like losing our own hands. Well, this is the era of technology and 2019 is going to be a far-reaching year.
In this article, we will be discussing the top 5 Tech trends that can change the future.
1. Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence innovations will continue more scientific breakthroughs. Self-driving cars are seen today. In the future, they will exist in the mainstream as they are a lot safer than human-driven cars and the number of accidents will happen less. In this year the AI and machine learning will be embedded to the business platform and this will start smart business operations. Advanced machine learning and new algorithm training will result in smarter AI.
Artificial intelligence helps in covering and protecting various aspects like,
- Data security
- Financial trading
- Marketing personalization
- Healthcare and insurance
- Fraud detection and security
- Smart cars (as mentioned above)
- Sales forecasting and predictive sales
- Data visualization and manufacturing analytics
- Robotics and automation system
- Natural language processing and others
2. Virtual and Augmented Reality
Virtual and augmented realities have become a major part nowadays. The computer processors are becoming fast enough to power the virtual and augmented reality experiences. Companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft are investing billions of dollars to make VR and AR more comfortable, immersive and affordable.AR and VR are not used only for gaming, they can be used in other sorts of activities too, such as- 3D objects manipulation.
3. Drones and Flying Cars
Drones started as a military technology but nowadays they are being used as commercial and consumer applications. Inspection of critical infrastructure like power lines, bridges, to survey areas of natural disasters drones are now being used everywhere. The leading multinational companies are making drones to deliver household items. Flying cars use the same technology as drone only large enough to carry more people. And the advanced materials, software, batteries, flying cars will be significantly more affordable and suitable than today’s airplane and helicopters.
4. Blockchain Technology
Blockchain is going to be a big part in the future of business, it is going to be the most important technological change or this era. Many protocols that were developed decades back are still being used these days. By using blockchain technology and cryptocurrency we can get a new business model for internet protocols. So the blockchain can make millions of dollars by the innovative blockchain based protocols. Studies predict that 30% of global customers will stick to Blockchain technology in order to manage their commercial activities.
5. Internet Of Things
It is an extension of internet connectivity into day to day physical devices and objects, also known as IoT this is going to be the foundation of new digital mesh and new business will thrive with the help of these devices. These devices can be monitored remotely and thus it can communicate with others over the internet. Generally, the internet of things consists of multiple technological aspects; it includes real-time analytics, machine learning, wireless sensor networks, control systems, etc.
The last but not the least is:
A new space age
Since the beginning of the space age, the majority of space funding has come from governments and the funding has been in decline. But nowadays private space companies have started filling the gap. These companies provide a wide range of products, services, rocket launchers, scientific researches and communications and other things. The most famous private space company is Elon Musk’s SpaceX. SpaceX successfully sent rocket (Falcon Heavy) into space that can return home and can be reused. Planetary Resources is the most intriguing private space company which is trying to pioneer a new industry: mining minerals from asteroids. This can be a whole new level if it becomes successful.
Wrap it up
We tried to discuss the top 5 tech trends and about their impacts on our daily lives. Technology can be both Boon and curse, so it is up to us how we use it. Hope 2019 will bring more new innovations and technologies; it is the best time to start up. Because as we know Science never stops and the best thing we can do it to be prepared!!
