In terms of innovations and trends n technology, some names are quite obvious and well known while few of them are revolutionizing human life silently. This article brings a list of some trending technology innovations which are mostly researched and recently developed.
1. Artificial Intelligence
The name of artificial intelligence is on the top of the technology innovations list and it is receiving a huge amount of investments from the past few years. More than 80% of organizations are planning to integrate AI in their businesses to automate functions and increase investments.
2. High-speed Internet
The desire for faster internet is growing in this fast-paced world of technology. Ranging from individual to business, everyone is demanding faster internet speed to have quick responses. 5G is on its way to give you internet speed which will do your regular works in blinks of seconds.
3. Smart Home
More and more people are getting concerned about making their home smart for several reasons. Integration of AI and deep learning algorithms with sensors and chips in homes will help in surveillance, energy consumption control, and cover-up security breaches. One element which is more common is a flexible viewing surface. It promises to curve your home space according to change in the environment and to entertain you in any circumstances.
4. Dexterous Robots
Computers and robots are considered smarter than humans. But they are actually dumb and can’t do anything if their environment changes with respect to their programming. The field of robotics is in a continuous struggle to enhance robotics dexterity and bringing more flexible opportunities for the purpose of automation. The most common example of this revolutionized robotics is Dactyl, which can flip toys using its fingers.
5. Brain-Computer Interface
Elon Musk, a famous creator in the field of Neuralinks; is on his way to implant chips in the human brain to make them work like superhuman. This work promises that humans will be able to control computers just by thinking about actions.
6. Edible Medical devices
Diagnosis of internal diseases like gut examination is painful for infants and old aged people. Technology is bringing swallow-able devices that will capture internal organs conditions and will help in quick and accurate diagnosis. This tool will be miraculous in the diagnosis of life-threatening diseases like cancer, gut infections, etc.
7. Customized cancer vaccines
Soon it will be possible that cancer will be curable like a minor fever. Scientific developments in the medical industry are gone too far that one can use personalized medications. In the near future, there are customized medicines for cancer that are expected and they will surely make cancer a thing of the past.
Generative Adversarial Networks can be defined as “the coolest idea in machine learning in the last twenty years”. It is one of the most leading innovations in the field of neural networks that utilize machine learning with two sets of neural networks to solve complex problems. This application is able to produce artificial images, developing models, improvised computer games and so on.
Plastic is a great source of contamination and pollution in our environment. According to the survey, less than 15% of plastics are recycled, while the rest of them remains in the environment to cause pollutions and dangers to the life of other living creatures. Biodegradable plastics offer a great solution to improve the circular economy of any state by utilizing lignin or cellulose from wastes which are directly useful for enhancing material strengths.
10. Social Robots
Flexibility in robotics is continuously rising up and there are robots that can recognize your voice, face, and gestures just like an old friend. Assistants and Droid friends are becoming part of daily life routine and are greatly used for care purposes of the elderly, education, catering and performing daily life tasks of humans.
Miniaturization in medical devices is becoming a common facilitating trend these days. Physics has led to the innovation of Metalenses which are more reliable, thin, tiny and flat as compared to bulky glass lenses.
12. DNA data storage
Energy storage devices are high in power and cost consumptions and them not capable to cope up with massive data produced on a daily basis. Researchers are stepping forward to utilize DNA-based data storage which is a comparatively low-cost, high capacity solution as compared to computer hard drives. It is estimated that a square meter cube of DNA can store the world’s data for the whole year.
The quantum leap in technology is difficult, to sum up in one article. To conclude this article, there are some other common innovations of technology which must be acknowledged.
