Technologies of the future that are closer than you think

Making technology in a new way is not an easy task, so making future predictions based on what is happening on the future tech proof is so much fascinating, tech companies are unveiling some of their ambitious plan for upcoming years and months to come, many start-up tech companies are feeling the innovation in the tech industry. Technology is used in our everyday lives, each day technology is being upgraded to a higher version of itself.

As this year 2018 move on, there is a lot of new technologies you will expect to reach the public in years to come.

Making this post, about future technology is both fun and difficult because they serve as a practical purpose for a business leader and investors.

However, we are giving you from techvocast round-up today, the most undefined tech proof of the future, these are some amazing technologies to expect in the coming years.

1. Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence, automated machine, AI, also mean Machine Intelligence (MI), is an Intelligence showed by machines, in contrast to the Natural Intelligence (NI) displayed by humans and other animals.

In computer science, AI research is defined as the study of “Intelligent agents”; any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals. The term “Artificial Intelligence” is applied when a machine mimics “cognitive” functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as learning and problem solving, the artificial intelligence is something like one may have seen in Sci-Fi movies, the Artificial Intelligence is already working on, the AI is more like a robot with implemented to know a variety of things.

Big Tech companies like Google and Amazon have already applied AI technology to regular consumers (Buyer) to make shopping and searching experiences easy on their corresponding platforms. With the progress and fast raising of the AI technology the Artificial technology will be available in less than 10 years

Machines, Big And Small

The influence of robotics, artificial intelligence, and increasing levels of automation is a trend throughout the projected time and line of future technology proof.

In less than 10 years, we will set a possibility to be able to control machines based on eye movements, the next propagation of the latest AI will be at the top-rated. If will look further down the line, you can see the human brains and machines will continue to come closer, and creating all kinds of possibilities with this technology.

2. The Internet Of Things

The Internet of Things is one of the most burning topics that is still coming up and has been talked about over and over as the next big innovation of the home of tech.

These IoT will continue to put more aspects of the home into one harmonious system by using the internet, this includes allowing a user to control anything from the air conditioning to their security via voice command and a small personal assistant. IoT has begun to carve a niche for itself in everyday life with the growing adoption of systems like Google’s Home and Amazon’s Alexa.

3. The Energy Revolution Continues

If you are thinking about why I include energy in this list you are wrong, yes I know it will have a lot of mean and way to generate energy, normal the current progress in clean energy but wait until you see the technologies in the queue that will blow your mind.

The future of battery technology will include carbon-breathing batteries that turn CO2 to generate electricity, and diamond-based “nuclear batteries” that run off of nuclear waste. Meanwhile, solar power will be even cheaper as the cells operate at near 100% efficiency, and commercial fusion power will be available.

Climate change will also be tackled by interesting techniques, such as geoengineering with calcite aerosols, and carbon sequestration

4. 760Mph Trains

The 760MPH trains will be the fastest when created, Imagine that you enter a train carriage hurtling down a tunnel at the same speed as a commercial jet airliner.  That’s the dream of Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. His Hyperloop system would see train passengers travel at up to 760mph through a vacuum tube, propelled by compressed air and induction motors.

A site has been chosen with the goal of starting test runs in two years.

5. Self-Driving Car

We’ve almost got used to driverless cars before we’ve even seen one on the roads. You might well see a lot more driverless trucks, in fact, makes the world go round.

They’ll be cheaper to run than regular rigs, driving more smoothly and so using less fuel or even batteries. Computers never get tired or need comfort breaks, so they’ll run longer routes. And they could drive in convoys, nose-to-tail, to minimize wind resistance.

Companies like Telsa, Mercedes and Peloton are already exploring these possibilities, and if the promised gains materialize, freight companies could upgrade entire fleets overnight.

On the downside, it could put drivers out of work, and even staff at the truck stops set up to service them, but many companies have said the trucks will still need a human passenger to ensure their cargo is safe.

6. Flying Cars

Flying cars are one of the most wanted future tech proof needed by the public, the flying car will be out in the nearest future, the Vahana; an airbus project to develop batter powered, the Vahana is a one-seater aircraft, a design to follow predetermined routes, and to avoid collisions between object, the swiveling rotor on the wings will let it take off and land without a runway.

The flying car without a runway is way much better than the one that uses a runway, be it you can take off on a spot,

Dubai announced plans to test the autonomous air taxis to beat the UAE’s traffic jams. The Volocopter is an electric multi-copter with 18 rotors and a autonomous control system. It’s made up of a scaled-up drone with two seats. The Israel-based company wants to fulfill the dream of “an aircraft that looks like the classic vision of a flying car; doesn’t have a wing, doesn’t have an exposed rotor and can fly from point to point,” says Janina Frankel-Yoeli, Urban Aeronautics’ vice president of marketing.

To go from point to point requires vertical take-off and landing, but for decades helicopters or larger aircraft could only do that. Urban Aeronautics’ solution is to use a light but powerful engines, lightweight composite materials, and automated flight controls. Their ducted fan design–propellers housed in aerodynamic tubes – is powerful but unstable, so the Fan craft would challenge for a human to fly unaided.

Instead, computer-aided control tech takes over the tiny, split-second adjustments required to keep the car stable at speeds of 160km/hr (100mph) or more. The main problem is a sky full of flying cars is regulation. Not only will every aircraft need to pass safety tests, but a new system of air traffic control will be needed to cope with three-dimensional traffic jams above unwitting pedestrians.

NASA is already working on that–tests have shown that multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can communicate with each other to avoid collisions. In the meantime, flying cars will be reserved for emergency services and a few VIPs you know.
