With every advancing day, we are moving closer to a future that is going to be completely automated. Right from automatic self-driven cars to cryptocurrency, there will be technologies that we could only once imagine. In the year 2019 and 2020, many innovative and technologically advanced systems will be launched, and we surely need to be aware of them. So, here is a small insight about these technologies that you should know about.
The world is looking forward to automatic machines that will make our lives a little hassle free. Amazon’s automated grocery store is the first step towards automation that has completely eliminated the need for paid cashiers in the system. Another automatic and innovative technology that we will soon see is the use of self-driving cars. In 2019, General Motors and also Tesla’s self-driving cars will achieve great importance. After a thorough and intensive research and testing that lasted for several years, Tesla, Uber, General Motors ad Google’s Waymo have already developed prototypes of the automatic self-drive cars.
If you thought internet was an essentiality in today’s life, then Blockchain is the future which will be significant in the coming years. Blockchain is a systematically decentralized unit that manages and holds on to all other technologies such as applications, cryptocurrencies, etc. In simpler words, it is like a global online database that can be accessed by anyone from anyplace. It does not belong to anyone and with its extensive network, cheating, fake transactions and other cyber crime is almost impossible. With millions of users, corrupting the system is almost next to impossible.
Are you aware of Bitcoins? Well, after its massive price increase in the year 2017, cryptocurrencies have gained the attention of many investors and tech guru’s. There are many smaller companies that are in the process of developing Stablecoins that will attempt to also include the advantages of crytocurrency transactions, without letting the users suffer from the price fluctuations which have otherwise barred the exchange system. Once these coins begin to get into the market and the price fluctuations get evened out due to the coin exchanges, cryptocurrency will become one of the main payment methods followed by 2020.
Once believed to be a fictional thought simply pulled off of novels, Artificial intelligence is today a part of our lives. With the steady increase in the use of Internet of Things, cybersecurity and IT, experts are now adopting artificial neural networks to monitor and help prevent DDoS attacks on servers and databases. Companies like Google and Amazon are now using AI to simplify the searching and shopping process for their customers. By 2020, AI will be deeply incorporated into our regular lives.
The Internet of Things
IoT has been one of the most highly discussed topics amidst tech guru’s in the recent times. It is considered as one of the next biggest technologies to have been made in the home technology sector. We are all aware of Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Home systems that have already carved a niche in our lives. These technologies will continue to upgrade and slowly integrate better and more important aspects of our home with the help of internet and voice command. You will soon be able to control everything in your house through the IoT such as home security, air conditioning, refrigerators etc. Imagine it to be your ideal personal assistant at home.
