Breakthrough Technologies in 2018

Technology never fails to amaze us, right? And the most amusing part is that there’s always something new on the block! This ever-evolving trait of technology is something that keeps us hooked to it. Something invented last year can become completely obsolete this year, just because someone created something new or someone else came up with a better version of what already existed. So what happens? The “Old” technology is goes into the bin, and we all look towards the new one with gleamy eyes! With the same gleamy eyes, let’s have a look at the breakthroughs in technology in 2018!

Zero-carbon Natural gas:
Carbon emissions are a significant issue threatening our natural cover. But thanks to Net Power, a Houston based company, this issue is on the verge of being resolved! They are taking efforts towards converting the dream of zero-emission fuel into reality. Though natural gas has provided to be a much better alternative to coal, it still is not completely clean, which is precisely what led this company into coming up with this fuel that guarantees zero emissions. The scene of pollution caused by fuel emissions is about to change, people!

Crypto-anchors and Blockchain technology:
2017 saw the sudden rise of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. This spurt in usage also witnessed a lot of security issues relating to the usage of cryptocurrencies. Scandals of counterfeiting in cryptocurrencies came up, and something had to be done to keep this new form of currency safe. This has brought Crypto-anchors and Blockchain technology into the picture. Counterfeiting in cryptocurrencies can be tackled with the help of Crypto-anchors and Blockchain technology. The combination is going to resist all sorts of malpractices in cryptocurrencies and in the next five years, all efforts directed towards increasing the security of Cryptocurrencies will surely see success and combating frauds and protection of consumers will be a lot easier.

3D Metal printing:
What’s new? It’s just 3D Printing, right? Wait, this is different! This is 3D Metal printing. The regular 3D printing facilitated printing of only plastic, but the introduction of 3D metal printing is revolutionary! Imagine the innumerable things that can be printed in bulk quantities, saving a lot of time as well as energy! 3D printing itself was impactful in its way, but the metal printing aspect has given it a different dimension altogether.

Artificial Intelligence, anywhere and everywhere:
Until now, usage of Artificial Intelligence was restricted to only those who could afford it. The expensive technology was not within everyone’s reach. But not anymore! AI is now for everyone! Google and Microsoft are coming up with their machine based learning tools to make understanding and implementation of AI a lot easier for everyone. Considering the expected increase in the utilisation of AI, this widespread availability of AI will indeed prove to be beneficial.

Genetic fortune telling:
A lot of research and clinical trials are being conducted to achieve this as soon as possible. All the probable diseases that a baby may be prone to in his future are known at the time of birth itself. Being at initial stages, this theory is facing some difficulties in the reliability of these predictions. But with the efforts being directed in making the Genetic Fortune Telling a reality will surely make it a reliable technology one day.

Managed to amuse you again, right?

5 ways Artificial Intelligence will change the world:

Though at the nascent stage, Artificial intelligence has already started catching up! In a lot of sectors – industrial, medical, entertainment, transport, hospitality – artificial intelligence has begun making its presence felt. And this fast spreading impact of Artificial intelligence is definitely going to affect the entire world. We have to be prepared, and some things which we need to know are:

Artificial intelligence and love:
You no longer need a human to experience the beautiful emotion of love. Apparently, there is a Companion robot, which emotes the complicated feeling of love. It sounds really weird, but people, brace yourselves, it’s happening. It will probably be a solution to all those lonely depressed souls out there. Still strange, whether you will opt for these robots or not, but it’s good to at least keep up to date with recent trends right?

Automated transportation:
Yes, you heard that right! And that’s a pretty good defense to not learning to drive! The brighter side of automated transportation is, of course, hassle-free driving for physically disabled people, hand-on mothers amongst others. Though there have been quite some issues with driverless cars and trucks, the future definitely seems to be bright for this technology.

Improved care for the elderly:
Most of the times, it is not possible to be around the senior citizens in your home. But don’t worry, AI has a solution for this too! Artificial Intelligence has come up with “Home” robots which perform all everyday tasks for seniors and makes their lives easier. Staying alone is no longer troublesome with these Home robots around. You need not worry about the safety of the elders in your absence anymore.

Robo-Warriors:
These robots will be soon inducted in defence establishments all around the world. Already a part of the US military, these Robo-warriors will help the army in a variety of ways. The Agency which developed Robo-warriors is also working on the development of robots that will be useful in disaster management. Good use of AI must say!

AI – an excellent career option:
AI is developing, and it is also emerging as a unique career opportunity. The number of AI researchers that are getting hired to develop AI is staggeringly increasing by the day. AI is not only impacting various other sectors, but it is also proving to be excellent employment and career opportunity. Those interested can have a great career ahead.
