Future technology prediction is what every one has eyes on.Innovations are too quick just like rapid fire session.
Just go with the flow, as technology gurus aka CEOs of Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, Google, Tesla, Telenor & Qualcomm have already envisioned for us. Every one is agreed on the this perfect combination:
Intelligent Embedded System, 5G, IoT and AI
Smart yet powerful processors based on embedded systems will enable 5G & IoT. Then of course Internet of Things will boost AI via 5G.IoT is AI enabler and going to change the current business scenario altogether. There are going to be new opportunities after applying this combination of cutting edge tech.
Even Elon Musk stepped further in AI application by directly connecting human brain with Neural AI based machine.After that bold initiative by Elon, Microsoft has decided to invest $1 billion in this artificial intelligence venture that plans to replicate the human brain using computers. So Future technologies are revolving around IoT and AI.
Bill Gates has picked a detailed list of emerging technologies that will rule by 2020.
The founder of the American company Microsoft Bill Gates compiled a list of ten breakthrough technologies in 2019 for the publication of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT Technology Review.
Since 2001, the publication annually compiles a list of ten key technologies that should provide a technological breakthrough. As a rule, the top 10 technologies are determined by the editors, but this year Bill Gates was invited to compile the list.
“It was difficult to reduce the list to 10 positions. I tried to choose not only the technologies that will appear in the news headlines, but also those that will make 2019 a year in the history of technology development, ”Gates said.
The Microsoft founder identified the following key areas:
1. Creating robots that can more cleverly interact with the outside world.
In order for robotics to be used in mass production, it is necessary to increase the accuracy with which robots interact with the environment. The development of these technologies will lead to the fact that the robot can be used not only in industry (for example, when assembling electronic devices), but also in everyday life.
2. A new stage in the development of nuclear energy.
This year, several new generation IV nuclear reactors will be launched. Commercial use of such nuclear reactors will begin no earlier than 2020, but they will make nuclear power engineering safer and cheaper. There is also progress in the field of thermonuclear fusion, such work is carried out by General Fusion and Commonwealth Fusion Systems, but no one expects industrial application of controlled thermonuclear fusion before 2030.
3. Genetic tests that determine the risk of preterm birth.
Several companies are working on genetic tests that will identify the risk of preterm birth. For example, the startup Akna Dx expects to offer a blood test technology, testing at which will cost $ 10. These tests will help doctors identify groups of women in need of special monitoring of the progress of pregnancy.
4. Intestinal probe in tablet form.
Small devices that can replace gastrointestinal probes, providing the same accuracy of verification as well as the possibility of a tissue biopsy, have already been developed in the Tearney laboratory. It is planned that in 2019 these capsules will be reduced even more, which will allow their use even in the study of infants.
5. Individual cancer vaccines.
This technology is jointly developed by BioNTech and Genentech. The new technology will allow you to create individual vaccines for each patient, based on data obtained from a biopsy of a cancer.
6. Growing artificial meat.
People are unlikely to give up meat in the near future, so one of the promising areas is the development of technology for growing artificial muscle tissue of animals in bioreactors. Such studies are engaged, for example, scientists from the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands.
7. Carbon dioxide trap.
Methods of capturing carbon dioxide in the air are complex from an engineering point of view, but can be a real solution to the problem of global warming.
8. “Smart watch” with ECG support.
Wearable electronic devices that provide continuous monitoring of the cardiovascular system achieve the accuracy of medical devices.
9. New type of treatment facilities that do not require a sewage system.
Autonomous treatment facilities can be used in regions of the world with an underdeveloped communal infrastructure. Now engineers and scientists are working to reduce the cost of these technologies.
10. Digital intelligent assistants.
The development of artificial intelligence technologies will significantly expand the range of tasks that digital assistants can solve. For example, voice assistants are beginning to better recognize natural speech, which will make it possible to use their automation for a number of daily tasks, such as searching for information and making purchases.
