The year 2017 saw an immense bout of growth and advancement in technological performances. For instance, several organisations responsible for the social media apps online added new features to their platforms. Again, the Apple company pushed into the market new iPhone versions- iPhone 8, 8+ and iPhone 10. This is not to talk of the embrace of cryptocurrencies last year.
Also, Artificial intelligence took a new turn with Google’s proposed establishment of their first AI research centre in China. China is also progressively active in the development of AI-related technology. So that they have been able to develop self-driving trains, buses and cars. Indeed, 2017 saw the beginning of great things.
We should get down to knowing what technological developments to expect this year.
1. Data Accuracy
Innovations, which in many ways, will make data compilation and extraction is going to happen this year. And of course, the presence of accurate data will do a lot to help various sectors like the health and security sectors. Also, biologists aim at developing an accurate data system that will help them with determining more about organisms and embryos. The field of synthetic biology has more to do with this.
2. Quantum Mechanics
Several discoveries with regards to the outer world are already in the works. But this year, several dark layers will receive more light. For one, scientists predict that quantum mechanics is likely to rub off on spacetime. So that the quantum nature of spacetime itself is put on a clear board.
3. Biological Gene Editing
Imagine being able to edit genes and get rid of rare diseases in the body. Well, this technological development has been going on for a while. And it is just about to explode this year.
4. Artificial Intelligence (AI)
No doubt, Artificial Intelligence is bound to soar this year. And by soar, we mean that AI machines will be trained personnel that can multitask without the need for a manual reset. They will be in every aspect of human life; politics, gaming, science, sports, everywhere.
5. Weather Forecast
If there is any one thing to admit, it is that weather forecasting is mostly seen as a joke by many. But this is not to say they have not been major breakthroughs in this regard. Technologists now say that weather forecasting will be better this year.
6. Einstein’s Relativity
Einstein’s relativity goes beyond the theoretical body it entails. It has led to a mass of discoveries. And this year, it will yet lead to many more.
7. Virtual currency
So, it is already becoming clear to most people that cryptocurrencies are set to rule the world. And 2018 is going to be one epic year for the crypto revolutionary change that is to come.
