Check out some of the amazing technology that can change the world in coming years. | Future technology
There is significant growth in the world of technology and is still rising rapidly. Robots, computers, AI, IoT devices are everywhere making our life easy day by day. From medicine, agriculture to space, and almost every field is utilizing technology to the fullest.
There are so many emerging technologies that are evolving and have great potential in changing the globe. Here are a few of my picks on some impressive technology that can change the world and its living.
Artificial Intelligence and Advanced robots
AI has become a trend in the tech world as it has made several machines possible to think and learn on their own. A computer programmed robots that can catch data, analyze it, and learn from it. It keeps on learning and implementing it. Some of the popular AI software robots you might be familiar with and use on smart devices are Google Assistant, Alexa, Siri. These AI programs learn and analyze your behavior and give you suggestions on what you might be interested in.
Many other AI bots are also used in marketing, advertisements, and other data analysis sites. Not only software, but there are also physical forms of AI machines like the robots that work in factories for evaluation and building products, precision surgery robots used in the medical field, and also humanoid robots like Sophia – A robot that learns and acts just like a human, First AI robot to get a citizenship in Saudi Arabia.

By looking at these various applications, just imagine How much AI would have developed in the future. We might see all kinds of robots in our house assisting us and doing our boring jobs. Presently, AI is now combining with almost all other future technology. Everything is pointing to automation and it would surely be one of the most interesting technologies that can change the world. At some point, Artificial Intelligence might also become stronger than our brain.

Some of the advanced robots should be taken into consideration. These are robots built from tissue rather than some metallic compound. Scientists are building micro-organism bots known as living robots, the fascinating part about these bots are, their property to breathe and also self-heal. It can be widely used in the medical industry.
Augmented reality and Virtual reality
Augmented Reality (AR)- An interface where you can place a virtual object into the real world. Just like the game Pokémon Go where you used to catch Pokémon by roaming around your neighborhood. This is just the beginning, there are many more amusing uses of AR.
On the other hand, Virtual Reality (VR)- An interface for a real object like humans to see and experience a virtual world.
The boundaries of Augmented and virtual reality are growing. Many new applications are popping out. With the help of AI, the software can analyze the problem and show you visually the procedure of what you need to do. For example, Just wear a contact lens, and it will automatically point out the product price, rating, and quality you are looking at, or just by looking at the city, it can show a direction to the nearby restaurant in a visual format.
This can become a game changing technology that can change the world.
With the help of VR and AR, Sports and Gaming can also be taken to a whole new level. By using bodysuits that enhance haptic feedback, you can not only see but experience and feel the virtual world as though it’s real. And using AR, you can bring the virtual world and combine it with the real-world objects to give a better experience.
Many more uses will be there in the future, like Virtual advertisements, online shopping (Wearing a virtual dress), etc.
Brain to Computer Interface
Imagine being able to control your smartphones or a computer just by thinking about it. Want to send a mail to your friend, just think about it and the computer does it. just imagine how would it be like if you were listening to music not through some headphones or speakers, but directly streamed into your brain. Downloading and watching a movie in your mind. Looks like an impossible thing to do right? But you might be shocked by knowing that it is already being developed and is going to have fully-fledged applications soon.
Leading the way is, Elon musk’s company called Neuralink which is working to create a Brain-to-machine interface. The idea is to implant a chip into your brain which can be used to communicate with computers using your thoughts.
The approach of Neuralink is to help humans compete with highly intelligent robots in the future (AI robots) and also aims in creating a process to cure disorders like blindness, Memory loss, paralysis, and many more. It can lead to a very powerful technology that can change the world in the future.

Self-driving vehicles are already in the market and the biggest player is Tesla. But this is just the beginning, as the progress of autonomous vehicles increase, other companies would just adopt it. The goal of Self-driving cars is level 5 i.e, no pedals and no steering wheels. In the future, there could be more number of people with fewer cars, where the passenger would enter the location and it delivers them to their destination.
This can result in fewer accidents, free up space, and also reduce pollution that’s increasing due to the manufacturing of more and more number of automobiles.
There are many other vehicles like Self-driven drones that can be used in the movie industry and for delivery purposes. Amazon planning on drone delivery in the future.

Advanced 3D printing
3D printing has become an old technology at present and mostly used in producing those 3D printed objects, accessories, and vehicle parts. So, How can 3D printing play a vital role in a technology that can change the world? And the answer is 3D printed organs, rockets, and a whole building/infrastructure. It can be printed in so little time and would save a large number of casualties and also time. Now, you can see its potential right? You can have many more important applications of 3D printing and it can also save an enormous amount of time.
Combining AI with 3D printing machines can have a tremendous impact on the production of machines and space shuttle. AI can detect faults in the design and improve on them accordingly.
