The only constant is change. This applies even to your personal life. Nowadays, up-skilling yourself is a must, and the explanation is pretty clear, technology is changing quickly. Technology is growing at such a quick pace that annual trend forecasts may appear out-of-date. As technology progresses, it encourages more considerable change and growth, causing the rate of change to increase until it is exponential at last. This means staying up to date with technological advances. It indicates holding your sights on the future and understanding what skills you need to learn.
Artificial Intelligence, or AI, has been getting a lot of buzz over the past few years, but it’s still a phenomenon to watch because its impact on how we live, function, and play is still in the early stages. In addition, there are other forms of AIs, including Machine Learning. AI applies to computer programs for imitating human intelligence and carrying out tasks such as recognizing images, voice or patterns, and decision-making. AI can do these tasks more efficiently and with greater precision than humans.
A branch of AI is Machine Learning. With Machine Learning, computers are trained to learn how to do what they are not prepared to do: learn by extracting patterns and insights from the data. Typically there are two modes of learning, which are supervised and uncontrolled. Machine learning is used in all sorts of sectors, generating tremendous demand for trained professionals. Frameworks for machine learning are used in data processing, data mining, and pattern recognition.
Another technology is robot process automation or RPA that automates work, Including Machine Learning and AI. RPA makes use of tools to simplify business processes, including system analysis, processing of transactions, data handling, and even email responses. They are not just a low-paid worker’s menial tasks: up to 45 percent of the things we do can be automated, including financial administrators, doctors, and CEOs.
Virtual Reality (VR) features an intuitive in an environment while Augment Reality (AR) reinforces the setting. Though VR has been used mainly for gaming, it has also been used for training U.S. Captains of the Navy, Army, and Coast Guard. A typical example of AR is the Pokémon Go. Both VR and AR have tremendous potential for sports, entertainment, education, marketing, and even after injury recovery. Perhaps it could be used to train doctors to do surgery, give a more profound experience for museum-goers, boost theme parks, or even improve marketing.
Cyber security may not seem like new technology, considering it’s been around for a while, but it’s developing just like other technologies. That’s partly because threats are ever-new. The evil hackers attempting to access data illegally will not give up anytime soon and will try to find ways to get past even the strictest security measures. As long as we have hackers, we will have a cyber defense as a new technology, as it will continuously evolve to protect against those hackers.
