The world is constantly changing, the development of new and improving technology is making things change faster than ever before. Here is a list of some of the technology that has changed and is changing the world.
Self-driving cars are a huge development in artificial intelligence. The technological advancements of personal transportation are staggering, to say the least. Not only that but the accident avoidance features in regular cars have been a massive step forward in terms of safety. As time has gone on we have seen the progression of all this technology and it’s got no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Voice Interface Technology
Backtrack 60 odd years and people were still trying to get their heads around the Television set. Few could even imagine living in a world where you would be able to turn your TV on with nothing more than your voice. But some of the people who were alive when the TV first made its appearance into homes and have seen the progression for themselves.
Voice interface technology is not just used for TVs there is actually a speaker device specifically designed to be controlled by your voice. But whilst it’s on, it’s got to be constantly listening in order to recognise when you are trying to control it. Leading to many conspiracy theorists thinking this is just a ploy for the government to listen to us even when we’re inside our own homes.
Blockchain is the technology behind Bitcoin.
For those who don’t know what Bitcoin is, it is a virtual currency that is actually worth a lot of money today. Since its launch in 2009, no one has ever been able to counterfeit Bitcoin. This shows just how successful Blockchain technology is. Blockchain provides users with the utmost trust, security and anonymity.
3-D printers have come a long way. We’ve gone from single-purpose industrial sized machines that are costly and complex to desktop devices that are inexpensive and can be used for pretty much be used by anyone for anything. This is a huge development for people who are into DIY and crafts.
Big Data Tools
Big data tools give the ability to store ginormous amounts of data. This is especially useful for big companies that have a huge amount of data and need somewhere to store it. Consumer data, precise user targeting, machine learning and optical recognition are just some of the data that is now being stored more successfully than ever before. We’ve sure come a long way from paper documents in storage boxes.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Artificial intelligence is arguably one of the most exciting, but most terrifying aspects of developing technology. From facilitating semantic data extraction to aiding the customer experience to even an AI robot who can think, learn, talk and has even become an official citizen of Saudi Arabia. This development is frightening purely because of the horror stories of AI robots one day turning against humans, becoming uncontrollable and taking over the world.
