We live in an exciting time where everything is rapidly becoming more technologically advanced.
With advancements in AI and the way that machines communicate with each other, we’re rapidly approaching a future that looks like a thing of science-fiction dreams.
But what does the present hold in terms of technology?
In this article, we’ll look at five types of advanced technology that are changing the world.
1. The Internet of Things
The Internet of Things has been with us for a few years and is sneaking its way further into our collective psyche without us really noticing. The Internet of Things is finding its way into everything in our homes from our fridges through to our vacuum cleaners.
The Internet of Things is built up of devices that talk to each other via the internet. It has applications in industry and in the home. Many people refer to the Internet of Things in the industry as being the fourth industrial revolution.
2. Edge Computing
What is edge computing? Edge cloud computing brings data storage closer to where it’s needed. It is an open IT architecture that includes decentralized computing which enables the Internet of Things and the use of mobile devices.
In edge computing, data is processed locally rather than getting sent to a distant data center. This article gives a helpful edge computing definition.
3. 5G Networks
5G may seem like a minor development in terms of advanced technology. After all, it’s just an improved mobile data network, the likes of which we’ve had for the last couple of decades now.
But the fifth-generation data networks promise to unlock much of the new technology that’s on the horizon. Autonomous cars, drones, remote surgery, and improved home broadband are all areas that will be greatly enhanced through the use of 5G internet.
4. Artificial Intelligence
Once the dream of science fiction, artificial intelligence has been a big part of our lives for the last few years and you probably don’t even notice it at work. AI is used everywhere these days. From the virtual assistant in your smartphone or smart speaker, to autonomous cars.
AI is rapidly developing. It helps us make smarter decisions and helps make life easier for us.
5. Autonomous Vehicles
Driverless vehicles will be with us very soon. Trials have been underway for the last few years, and the first vehicles will start hitting the tarmac in the coming years.
Driverless vehicles have numerous benefits. These include the fact that they are safer than conventional vehicles as they remove driver error. They are more environmentally friendly because journeys will be better planned, and driving styles can be adapted to suit traffic needs.
In terms of logistics, autonomous vehicles can get to the final location quicker. There is no need for drivers to take breaks and complex maneuvers can be carried out effortlessly.
There has never been a more exciting time in terms of advanced technology. Many of the innovations on the horizon will take us to Mars and take our use of the internet to the next level.
