Human life and Mother Earth cannot survive without change. The entire life concept is devised on the habit of change. Knowing about the technologies that are becoming popular in recent times is one way to move forward in your professional and personal life as well. In this article, we focus on the popular recent technologies that are creating quite an impact on many industries.
Now let us focus on the technology of the future
In normal mode, 5G isn’t just the next 4G step. This is designed to provide a higher level of performance than the older generation types namely 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G. Those who have an internet connection will always complain about the slow downloading of videos or the slow opening of web pages. With this technology, you can expect better connectivity and performance.
Quantum computing is an emerging secret technology. Every developed or developing country wants to have a supercomputer that will envy neighboring countries. And believe the work that the computer will complete. Many heavy tasks will be completed in seconds by the computer.
Augmented Reality (AR)/Virtual Reality (VR)
AR is an interactive experience of a real-world view in which perceived real-world targets are improved by computer-generated perceptual data. Augmented Reality is a sequence of interactive digital factors like our real environment.
Internet of Things (IoT)
Home Automation, Smart Home or Internet of Things is a process by which every smart home electronic appliance in your home gets connected to the internet. The benefit if you have family members of more than sixty years in the home, they will find it difficult to move around the home. So, if they have a private room, they will find difficulty to activate the lights or fan.
With the Internet of Things, you can install smart equipment such as Led lights and smart fans. Only with voice commands, the elders can enable or disable the fan. The smart washing machine can be modified to send alerts to your mobile after washing activity.
Blockchain Technology is best explained as a distributed, no ownership ledger of records that have a connection to many computers. Every record cannot get changed without causing variations to all the blocks. This technology is mostly used for Cryptocurrency.
At present, the blockchain technology has been divided into four types by name
- Public Blockchain
- Private Blockchain
- Consortium Blockchain
- Hybrid Blockchain
The one technology which has made quite an impact in many industries. It is estimated that nearly more than fifty-one percent of companies are using AI in one way or the other. Let us focus on some examples to know about the benefits of AI.
In the customer care industry, you have the chatbots with AI applications. They can give voice responses, send an email or route the call to a human. They are well-programmed to solve simple and every day queries of the customer. The complex queries get routed to a machine learning application or to a human for giving apt responses. For example, you have a company related to TV repair in Maharashtra’s capital city. For getting maximum customers, you have entered into a liaison with a popular start-up which provides doorstep home maintenance services for electronic appliances.
But you have installed chatbots as part of the customer care service team. They handle simple queries while the complex questions are handled by humans. The chatbots do not need any leaves and can give apt responses as programmed. Your customers stay happy and satisfied forever.
In the travel industry, it is robots with AI which have become a favorite for the public. For example, the famous Hilton Group of Hotels has a robot by name, Connie. This robot can hear and answer queries related to tourist spots and flight details.
In the manufacturing industry, Robots with AI have taken the place of humans who do the same manual job again and again. Now, the same workmen can focus their energy on other important tasks.
It is a part of artificial intelligence but in a more advanced method. Remember the last paragraph when you read about the complex queries in customer care service. Now, the program has been designed in such a way that it can learn on its own.
For example, you have a smart thermostat with ML applications. You modify the settings and set the temperature. In the summer, you opt for a certain temperature. In the winter, you opt for another one. So, the change has been made, from one temperature level to another. You do not have to modify the temperature again. The thermostat can do on its own for the entire winter season to the second preferred temperature, courtesy, machine learning.
Discussed in the article are seven popular recent technologies. Among them, 5G is yet to make an entry. Out of the five mentioned, it is AI which is making hay in most industries.
