It is sad to hear that people giving religious touch to Yoga and finally decided to leave Suryanamaskar one of the powerful Asana. Those who are arguing as India is accused of pushing ‘Hindu agenda’ on Muslims. Please grow-up.
Where we are heading ? What will be the future ? The whole world is evolving just due to few big elephants, yeah Google,Apple,Facebook and Microsoft. Thousands of companies every day emerging out and directly or indirectly these big elephants are source for all these evolution in technology, they are changing the world.
We have seen great inventions happened in last decade, Everything which was there upon the table now came to your finger tips, you can speak to your mobile and yeah it responds you back nicely. Apple Siri changed the way of communication with its touch interface in iPhone and voice interface in Siri, google now and microsoft’s Cortana.
Microsoft took one step ahead with its Hologram that is one of the awesome idea, but how much that would be complete we have to see only when we get it in use. Google’s self driving car and now Apple in the same line.
What else ??
An Era of Adopting to Technology
This is very old story now, 5 years before people use to say we should adopt technology, use technology and grow your business, use technology and optimise your tasks, use technology schedule your duty oh what not? It became big problem for old generation who never understood how to use computers and how to learn to use applications etc.
Observing closely the recent evolution in technology proves that, that era has gone now, it is taking a new shape and evolving even more sophisticatedly and smartly. then What we could expect out it ?
An Era of Technology being adopted to humans
Does’t it looks funny ? or does it make any sense ? yes of course it makes sense. Softwares are becoming smart with the intelligent algorithms, devices are becoming smarter with ultimate sensors, It is not just your touch, it is not just your voice now your movements and pattern are being analysed by algorithms and your device decides what to do next ! Google Search becoming clever every day it can understand the context you are working and you can query as if you are speaking to some one. Apple announced latest OS, the main focus is to make their device intelligent, It understands where you are, it understands what you are looking for it suggests you.
Operating systems are becoming smarter day by day, the data you are going to access are local more native centric, machines knew what you want, they understand you better than any one else 🙂
Future Is In Artificial intelligence ?
Looks like These big elephants are creating market for it, Apple’s HomeKit and google’s Brillo making every object you are using at home connected, your every device may start understanding what you are and they serve you what exactly you want and when exactly you want.
You home lock is connected to you phone, your kitchen is fully under your control, your lights will get on as you enter and off as you are leaving the room, algorithms understand your behaviour by analysing the data collected and will suggest you which food you can have now, they alerts you when you are eating high calorie food because your weight is under control since you started Yoga 🙂
Future Of Robotics !
So far robots were made for space missions, for military and for research areas but its the time to have a robot for your personal assistance everything what a human can do, now machines can do much better than him,Robotics in home appliances will be popular soon. Google is investing in robotics not only this much there are Top 10 Robotics companies which are expected to change the future of robotics.
Thanks to ipv6, you can generate as many ip addresses using ipv6 where you can automate each and every device of every home in the world, Thanks to the concept of Internet Of Things where every device is connected to cloud directly, google’s Brillo is an example for IoT. You automate everything, control everything just using your smart phone, yeah really smart phone 🙂
Future Of Technology ?
One can imagine now what would be the future of Technology, Everything is connected, Everything under your control, Everything is automated, Everything is smart and intelligent, Everything just in front of your door. Rather than asking what you want, now your devices, your softwares will say what you need 🙂
Imagine the Future !
Companies investing heavily to make your life simpler, but we are really neglecting the mother nature, we are really forgetting environmental issues, our soil is polluted due to waste gadgets, chemicals etc our air is polluted, oceans are polluted. globalisation bringing more and more problems to us. We should really encourage and appreciate the use of renewable energy sources and make our future even better.
Use of solar panel for you mobile to charge, use of solar power to make ur robot work at home, use of intelligent architecture to cool your home/office, what else can be done ? just invent anything keeping environment in mind.
Enjoy the future because you have no work to do, you will be the laziest animal on this planet 🙂
