“There will come a time when it isn’t ‘They’re spying on me through my phone’ anymore. Eventually, it will be ‘My phone is spying on me’.” ― Philip K. Dick
Our privacy is only private for us as we keep setting privacy and security setting in the web platform, but public for computer mastermind and intelligent people. “Nothing is private in this universe since the internet started to roam around the world.” We must know the absolute reality, “We are not allowing our mobile phone or new techno gadget to lick the information, but we are only the responsible person to make it happen because we store the information not in the brain, not we think better to put down note, but we think, the demand of the time, we keep it safe in the mobile phone or new techno gadget where the data is stored on cloud storage. And, it has better access from any type of device through application which can dig deeper inside our privacy to hurt us.” That’s true— “My phone is spying on me.” So what we need to know is— “How are we perceiving our today’s world? And how was before?” We need to update ourselves on New Trends on Technology which help us to know how to deal with and use it properly without any harm physically and mentally for the living beings but for the advantage of the world.
Let me first perceive the world from my point of view!
The world what we have been observing since our childhood is the world full of excitement, happiness and enjoyment with the family, with the friends, and with the places of the time. That beautiful days are no more. When we were telling stories with friends while walking way up or down to reach school on time. Whether the stories were about superstitions, hypothetical or movies of the time. We have that thing— happiness, friendliness in that time. But the life is not as that as in this digital world.
Now, it’s totally different. The world that we have been observing since the Internet started and growing of technology and handy useful gadgets is the world full of collections of millions of devices showering the market place everywhere on the people’s head around the world where people can search happiness and excitement being alone sitting on the corner side of room. Even, we have forgotten that we’re also a member of this world, but we are working as a member of the global village.
So we cannot live without being unknown about the technology trends that are growing such as the fastest bullet train or like the high skyscrapers making them higher and higher soon ranking them differently higher. As the Forbes.com says, ” We are amidst the 4th Industrial Revolution, and technology is evolving faster than ever. Companies and individuals that don’t keep up with some of the major tech trends run the risk of being left behind. Understanding the key trends will allow people and businesses to prepare and grasp the opportunities.”
The future is always fascinating with the growth of tremendous innovative exciting developments in the coming year. Learning is a must to know the new technology trends to keep update and utilize appropriately or get benefit in time. Here are some of the Latest Trending Technologies.
5G is the fifth generation of mobile network technology. It brings a huge amount of benefits, such as high internet speed, higher capacity, and lower latency. It gives us supersonic download and upload speeds as well as more convenient stable internet connection. Year 2020 is the gateway to dive into many countries and cities to serve the internet with 5G affordable data plans with greatly improved coverage. This is widely available in most of the upcoming advanced devices like camera as well and applied in new industrial, automotive, medical and educational sectors.
2. Quantum Computing
Quantum computing is based on the principles of quantum theory. It enables industries to tackle problems they never would have attempted to solve before. And the quantum computing market will grow strongly through the next decade, according to a Tractica market report. A quantum computer can be the potential to be millions of times more powerful than today’s most powerful supercomputers.
3. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML)
Artificial intelligence is serving the world greatly by its technological development to perform task such as image recognition, speech or patterns, and decision making more quickly and accurately than a human. ML and AI are widely used which will improve the performance of marketers which relatively increase the percentage in efficiency, quality and business results. The intelligent mind of human can increase the quality in work, performs and complete the task easily just like the ability of machines to learn and act intelligently will absolutely transform our world. For example, social media platforms use machine learning to get a better understanding of how you’re connected with those in your social network. They do this by analyzing your likes, shares and comments and then prioritizing content from your closest connections, serving you that content first.
4. IoT (Internet of Things)
Now-a-days, people choose the internet as a mode of communication. Millions of people are sharing their information and communicating widely creating a global village in one place. IoT is transforming our life day by day. It will connect each object to the internet in some way or the other. Whether it’s the refrigerator door or the furniture, the sensors that would calculate and send the data to the cloud will be mounted. In other words, it would soon turn out our Mother Nature would be Smart Nature. It connects ever-growing number of “smart” devices and objects connected through internet. And such devices are helpful to gather and transmit data which will be the source for Big Data and AI. Big Data is the amount of data that is created in our world due to the connectivity of internet. Augmented analytics helps to work with enormously complex and varied streams of Data stored around the world.
This is the method of storing, authenticating and protecting data while doing business through internet. It is a decentralized digital ledger that stores transactions on thousands of computers around the globe. It increases security and speeds up the exchange of information in a manner that is cost-effective and more transparent.
6. Genomics and Gene Editing
Genome is the branch of molecular biology concerned with the structure, function, evolution, and mapping of genomes and Gene Editing is a group of technologies that give scientists the ability to change an organism’s DNA. These technologies allow genetic material to be added, removed, or altered at particular locations in the genome. Advances in computing and analytics have driven incredible leaps in our understanding of the human genome. Now, we’re progressing to altering the genetic structure of living organisms (for example, “correcting” DNA mutations that can lead to cancer).
7. 3D and 4D printing and additive manufacturing.
4D printing is the process through which a 3D printed object transforms itself into another structure over the influence of external energy input as temperature, light or other environmental stimuli. Although this may seem low-tech compared to some of the other trends, 3D and 4D printing will have very wide applications.
8. Natural language processing.
It’s also a branch of AI which deals with the interaction between computers and humans using the natural language. The ultimate objective of NLP is to read, decipher, understand, and make sense of the human languages in a manner that is valuable.
9. Cloud and edge computing.
The data centers available to many users over the Internet is cloud computing. We can store data on other computers and accessed via the internet. We can have the access of applications and data from any location worldwide and from any device with an internet connection. Edge computing – where data is processed on smart devices (like phones). It optimizes internet devices and web applications by bringing computing closer to the source of the data.
10. Extended or Crossed Reality (XR)
Extended Reality (XR) refers to all-real and virtual combined environments and human-machine interactions made by computer technology and wearables, where the ‘X’ represents a variable for any current or future spatial computing technologies. It covers several new and emerging technologies being used to create more immersive digital experiences. To the point it is a virtual, augmented, and mixed reality. Virtual reality (VR) provides a fully digitally immersive experience where you enter a computer-generated world using headsets that blend out the real world. Augmented reality (AR) overlays digital objects onto the real world via smartphone screens or displays (think Snapchat filters). Mixed reality (MR) is an extension of AR, that means users can interact with digital objects placed in the real world (think playing a holographic piano that you have placed into your room via an AR headset).
