About Technology

Technology is synonymous with development. Over time, we see ourselves getting familiar with the invention of even bolder and better technologies. We are in the year 2020 and we can only expect more functionalities that will better our lives. 

Here are some of the technology trends we see in 2020:

Internet of Things (IoT)

We are all familiar with the Internet at this stage. But with IoT, everything has leveled up. Imagine everything being connected to the WiFi and the Internet, making everything else possibly connected and functional. With IoT, devices, appliances, and many others are enabled through the use of the Internet. This is the future and we are already living it right before our very eyes. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Remember those days when we can only watch AI from movies? Today, it’s different. We encounter AI in our daily life. Our world is dominated by it. Who is not familiar with Siri? Or Alexa? Or a Google Assistant? We know them by heart and in one way or another have interacted with them and we were satisfied. AI used to be just a dream but because of technology, we live and breathe it daily and there seems to be no stopping it. 

Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR)

VR is the immersion of a user in an environment while AR is the enhancement of an environment. Both of these are particularly used in gaming but they are also effective in entertainment, training, education, and marketing. Seeing and being in a different world seems impossible if you think of it. But with VR and AR, you get to see a different view than what you actually have. 

VR and AR are not just for the world of entertainment. These technologies can also do great things for training in the medical field. There is a lot of potential awaiting more access in the field of VR and AR and we shall reap them sooner than we expect.
