GUEST POST from Art Inteligencia
Artificial Intelligence is constantly scanning the Internet to identify the technology trends that are the most interesting and potentially the most impactful. At present, according to artificial intelligence, the Top Five Technology Trends being tracked for futurology are:
1. Artificial Intelligence (AI): Artificial Intelligence is the development of computer systems that can perform tasks typically requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. AI research is highly technical and specialized, and is deeply divided into subfields that often fail to communicate with each other.
2. Autonomous Vehicles: Autonomous vehicles are vehicles that can navigate without human input, relying instead on sensors, GPS, and computer technology to determine their location and trajectory. Autonomous vehicles are used in a variety of applications, from consumer transportation to military drones.
3. Virtual Reality (VR): Virtual reality is a computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional environment that can be interacted with in a seemingly real or physical way by a person using special electronic equipment. VR uses technologies such as gesture control and stereoscopic displays to create immersive experiences for the user.
4. Augmented Reality (AR): Augmented reality is a technology that superimposes computer-generated content onto the real world to enhance or supplement a user’s physical experience. AR is used in a variety of contexts, from gaming to industrial design.
5. Internet of Things (IoT): The Internet of Things is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and connectivity that enable these objects to connect and exchange data. The IoT has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of our lives, from manufacturing and transportation to healthcare and energy management.
It’s obviously amusing that artificial intelligence considers artificial intelligence to be the number one technology trend at present in its futurology work. I would personally rank it number one, but I would rank autonomous vehicles and virtual reality lower. I would put augmented reality and IoT number two and number three respectively, but what do I know …
