Technologies you need to know today!

“The future is closer than you think. You can pay attention now or watch the transformation happen right in front of your eyes”
― Nicky Verd

Did you know that the computer was not created for entertainment or email but out of a need to solve a serious number-crunching crisis? Imagine taking five to ten years to tabulate the population of a country.this activity would be hectic and tiresome most of all time consuming, well this was once the case in the US. It led to the development of a system that would solve these mathematical problems in a fast manner with less manual labor. Today the amount of time to tabulate the population has reduced to weeks or several months depending on the population and the machinery used.

What is technology

According to the Miriam Webster dictionary technology is “a manner of accomplishing a task especially using technical processes, methods, or knowledge” I say technology is the development of a system that will perform a task in a better and more efficient manner.

Artificial intelligence

Artificial Intelligence or AI is the intelligence that is showed by a machine. A computer system/robot that can display behavior that is associated with intelligent beings.

Quantum Computing

Quantum — This is a minimum amount of any physical entity. The smallest possible unit of anything.

Computer vision

The thought of a computer having a computer or a machine that can see is startling, then comes to a technology called computer vision.

Nano technology

It is the study and use of matter in the scale of 1 nanometer to 100 nanometers in size. It is a technology that plays around with the size of a material by reducing the size which in turn reduces the surface area.

Blockchain technology

Blockchain technology it is a decentralized, distributed ledger that records the provenance of a digital asset. In simple terms, this is a technology that consists of a chain of blocks not necessarily the common kind of blocks rather it is digital pieces of information that are stored in the form of blocks.

Virtual reality (VR) and Augmented reality

According to Wikipedia a Virtual reality “is a simulated experience that can be similar to or completely different from the real world. Applications of virtual reality can include entertainment ( video games) and educational purposes such as medical or military training.” Virtual reality means experiencing things that do not exist in reality but exist in the virtual world.

Internet of things(IOT)

It is a network of physical devices, digital machines, and other objects that allows for a smooth transfer of data over a network without any real-time interaction. It includes a wide variety of “smart” devices, from industrial machines that transmit data about the production process to sensors that track information. With IOT transformation is inevitable in the fields of medicine, Education, logistic companies just to mention.

Data science

It is an inter-discipline that utilizes scientific methods algorithms and processes to extract patterns and insights in a data structure.This field comprises analysis and preparation for analysis. It borrows from statistics, computer science, machine learning that enables the understanding, presentation, and visualization of data hence drawing meaningful conclusions.

Summary

“The future is closer than you think. You can pay attention now or watch the transformation happen right in front of your eyes” ― Nicky Verd with technology the future turns out to be one big question, and the answer is hidden in time. Today we have a chance to explore a tip of the future by learning what technology holds and will bring. The best way to predict the future is to create it.
