8 technological innovations that will change our future
Can you imagine having a superhero view like Superman? Cure cancer with a chip? o Stop a suicide by chatting on Facebook? This in a very short time could be a reality thanks to technology.
The technology company IBM published a report in which it mentions some predictions of technological innovations that will have a great impact on humanity in the coming years.
In addition to these predictions, there are technological innovations that already surprise the world, we live with them and in the coming years they will be able to show their full potential.
Know the list of technological innovations that will change our lives in the coming years:
Artificial intelligence will help mental health
About 10% of the world population suffers from depression or anxiety and mental disorders represent 30% of the global burden of non-fatal disease, according to a study by the World Health Organization.
Can you imagine detecting these mental illnesses by analyzing our speech and writing?
In 5 years, everything we say and write will be an indicator of our mental health and physical well-being. Thanks artificial intelligence we can count on new cognitive systems capable of analyzing our speech and writing and identify patterns that could give notice of a possible mental illness in an initial phase.
Robots will replace workers
Currently there are about 25 million mobile robots worldwide and in the future their insertion in domestic and industrial environments is projected.
"In the next 15 years, it is estimated that 4 out of 10 people will be replaced by robots to perform repetitive tasks such as cutting the grass or collecting products at a supermarket cashier," says Joan Cwaik, technological innovator and coordinator of the Center of Technological Disclosure of the Faculty of Engineering of the UADE.
"Artificial intelligence in industry allows productive processes to become more efficient and precise. The productive industry in Peru must adapt to this new trend, demanding in this way more technical professionals specialized in technologies such as this. Robotics that uses artificial intelligence will take more and more prominence in Peruvian industry, "says Juan Carlos Quillas, academic head of the School of Engineering of Idat.
Virtual reality, augmented and mixed to live digital experiences
In 2016, we lived intensely the uses of augmented reality, especially with the launch of Pokemon Go that took millions of users to the streets. Virtual reality evolved and they began to sell helmets massively and not only for video games, it is also used educationally and to treat certain phobias. In the coming years, it is estimated that this technological innovation will change the cinematographic language we consume. The story would be 360 degrees and devices that incorporate sensors for touch, smell, etc. will be added.
Self-sufficient homes for energy efficiency
Home automation plays an important role as a source of innovation. In the coming years, households will be automated in opening and closing doors, air conditioning, use of electricity, etc. In this way, they encourage savings and make an efficient energy consumption.
Without a doubt, these technological innovations will have an important impact on our lives, as will the scientific advances in autonomous vehicles and drones that were shown this year.
