As we progress into the twenty-first century, the latest technology will continue to improve. It will be more affordable for consumers and more reliable for businesses. Mobile devices, for example, will be less susceptible to bugs and crashes. Computers, meanwhile, will have more integrated chipsets and be more efficient.
3D printing is a disruptive technology that comes at a perfect time. The automotive industry is currently struggling to bring innovative electric vehicles to market. Supply chains are strained and recession and inflation loom in the distance. 3D printing has the potential to transform the age-old design and manufacturing process by offering speed to market, control over supply, and upgrades to design.
Genomics is a rapidly emerging technology that can help solve complex genetic problems. Whether you are trying to create a new crop of plants or breed an animal, genomics is a necessary step. And with the use of artificial intelligence, it’s possible to break down complicated scenarios with millions of possible combinations and figure out the most effective solution for your situation.
The Internet of Things is a technology that is already being used in homes and many other industries. Although the majority of IoT devices are consumer electronics, the applications of IoT technology extend far beyond the home. The latest projections suggest that by 2022, over 30% of US consumers will own smart speakers.
Embedded systems are a growing trend in electronics. The Embedded World trade fair, which takes place in Nuremberg, Germany, showcases the latest developments in this area. It brings together the established embedded world with the digital world.
The growth in adoption of robotic technologies has been staggering, and it’s only going to continue to accelerate. With advances in artificial intelligence, machine learning, IoT, and big data, robots are becoming more integrated into our lives. Increasingly, they’re becoming indispensable, too. In the next couple of years, the robotic revolution will continue to grow thanks to increasing customer demand and increased trust in technology.
Wearable devices will enable continuous monitoring of the human body and provide a baseline measurement of health. This continuous monitoring will reveal changes and potentially alert to problems in the human body. For example, smartwatches equipped with an EKG can diagnose atrial fibrillation with surprising accuracy. The devices have received FDA approval for this use, and they may one day help to prevent heart attacks. They could also be used to detect infection and disease.
