resent and Future Evolution of Technology

These days, tablets, computers and Smartphones run our lives, but in a short time, the market has exploded with technology more than most people can imagine and to the point that they cannot imagine being without it. To understand the evolution of this technology from the dark ages to today, you should began with understanding how it evolved. Technology was born out of a purpose. An example would be in the creation of search engines, which are used to sift through all the massive quantity of online data.

As upgrades are made to technology, it combines with the present technology and creates a better technology that it was before. As this continues to happen, technology evolves to the point that it is an essential thing to have. Present technology continues to evolve into being even greater and more powerful. As fast as technology has evolved, many people have to struggle to keep up. Below is a short overview showing you how fast technology and the internet have evolved in recent years.

The Past: Back in the 1990s, the internet was something new that most, but not all, businesses and households had. If you were living at that time, chances are high that you remember the sound of the extremely slow dial up signal that would connect you to the internet. Technology began to take off when more people discovered value in the internet, especially when access eliminated the need for a phone line. With the advancement of webpages, most people had either a Tripod or Geocities webpage.

It was during this time, blogging started on the consumer level making sharing information much easier. Rather than using a floppy disc or CD-ROM, people started using either email or a USB drive to store and share large files. As more new technologies began to pop-up, they would combine to form a faster, stronger and better technology. With every new technology and internet development, people’s lives, were changed, as well as the way they work and operate.

The Present: Since those early days of dial up, there are very few places you cannot find the internet. Rare are the days now that Wi-Fi internet cannot be found at the library, coffee shop or place of business. Even if you cannot find a Wi-Fi signal close enough, many people still can access the internet with their cell phone or Smartphone. Because of the anytime/anywhere internet access, most businesses have created for their customers, web applications, or apps, that will answer most common needs. Consumers can use these apps to do everything from keeping track of food portions to sending large amounts of information with just the click of a button. One difference that is most noticeable with today’s internet is its ability to be personable in a very impersonal setting, while improving the way people engage with each other online.

Even though the internet is superficial, it is a form of communication that has helped to keep people closer when they may have lost contact otherwise. You can even have face to face conversations via video/web conferencing, which bridges the geographic barriers. Businesses can also communicate with customers on a more human level and without the need for long distance travel, they can communicate face to face with people even on the other side of the world. Due to all the new technologies people use to access the internet, each other and information, the future looks promising for more technological developments.

The Future: With every present technology that is bound together, they are developed into other technologies that are even greater for the future use of both businesses and consumers alike. Future technology will undoubtedly be able to accomplish more, be even faster and will make work easier. Tablets, Smartphones and other smart devices will keep on evolving to work better together.

These devices will be able to automatically share information and limit the need for human involvement. Rather than store everything on a single device or online, most companies and people will put their companies on the cloud. Not only will this give a huge potential to change how companies do business, it will also change the traditional way an office looks as well as the way people and businesses interact.

Benefits Of Future Technology

In this write up, the readers will get information on future technology and learn to what extent modern technology has been developed to assist the growth of human civilization.

Technology of the Future would be more sophisticated and user friendly. The rapid technological advancement will make technology more convenient and usable. New technology should be used for the benefit of the society. Now, it is better to say to what extent science and technology have been acceptable to the present generation. In comparison to conventional devices and equipment, future technology news states that ultramodern devices are more workable and powerful in their functionality. According to scientists and researchers, modern technology can make modification and upgrading of common things for their proper usage applying modern methods. The world will be more glamorous and attractive with newer technology and without any trace of carbon footprint.

If you check future technology news, you will find that there are newly launched products and technical accessories which have multifunctional features. For instance, recently Kevin Cheng invented Solar Planter which protects the natural green resources of nature. Plants will be highly protected using the Solar Planter which artificially creates solar energy to preserve green plants in a perfect way. The device is also equipped with powerful exhaust fans to clean out stagnant air from within the Solar Planter. Air will be circulated well inside the planter for the safe keeping of trees and plants. The Solar Planter is also energy efficient and environment friendly. According to future technology news nature will be completely protected from pollution using these new technologies as it will not produce any lethal or hazardous chemical solvents or gasoline products into the air.

In the sphere of the telecommunication, future and modern technology is very powerful and has contributed extensively for the betterment of the communication system. The invention of the humanoid robot is a burning example. Future technology news say that this robotic structure will be sent to out of the planet to strengthen the communication system. Experiments are still going on the upgrade of this robot.

Concept Cloud Blackberry is a sophisticated mobile phone which is both eco friendly and pollution free. This mobile is activated by liquid fuel which doesn’t disturb the peace of nature. Future technology will bring a lot more inventions and accessories to upgrade human lifestyles. The scientists believe that modern science is very effective to make the world green. Future technology must be more user friendly and should not hamper the natural growth of the human race. It must not disturb nature or the society.

Science is a boon and man needs to utilize this for the overall development of the world. Future technology these days not concentrated only on the benefit of humans. Scientists are trying to create technology that will be beneficial to the earth as well.

Information Technology

Introduction

IT technology has revolutionised the way mankind have been working in last two decades. Today it seems that without IT nothing seem to work. West has made meteoric progress due to availability of IT enabled services available to them.

The developing countries are also making effort to catch up by training their population or making them IT literate. First objective was learning the technique to handle the operating systems available along with the database and other supporting systems upon which the empire of IT application is set up. Therefore, two distinct groups have grown the IT generators and users. IT generators are the technical people responsible for maintaining, developing and making it usable for the user. Users are those who use the application for their benefit. There again there is this training involved giving the users the skills to use such an applications. There again lighter knowledge of the technical aspect is necessary. The users are those who actually know and do the work which gives benefit to the organisation and the customers. Organisations increase productivity and customers get better products and services.

This is quite smooth and appears to be an ideal situation under which every one would like to work or like things to happen. In reality there are two experts one who makes the IT and another who uses it both are experts in there line the producer and the user. It is not difficult to say that users’ level of satisfaction is the guiding factor for the development of IT technology. Future of further seamless development of IT would completely depend on the satisfaction level of the user.

Present Problem

There are many countries such as India and even in developed countries where there is high concentration of IT technologists with low computerisation in the society. Less or no computerisation is acceptable but bad or poor quality of IT would cause immense damage to the society that it will be difficult for it to come out of it in the long run. In some form people still feel confidant to work in manual format since it is easy to handle and there is no danger of data loss.

Next problem is the introduction of application software in the economic environment. The IT technologist may not have full understanding of the operation nor does he have the experience built up over period of time relevant to that working culture. This creates a contradiction between the software and the user and many a times cause delay and loss of data. On one side IT is helpful on the other, if not made as per the requirement of the organisation, it hinders growth. Many times I have seen a retail sales man writing cash memo to avoid further delay. Here IT per say is not responsible but the application software developed is causing the problem.

IT technologists are developing the technology at a fast rate and the people at large are unable keep pace. The cost of such fast change is also causing slow pace of IT penetration in the society. One must understand the span of influence one change has on the total gamut of the technology. IT is just not the software. IT industry is in obsolescence syndrome. It is an industry which suffers from obsolescence every six month. The prices of the products, therefore, can not come down beyond a level. Today from investment point of view it is like investing in entertainment industry where product life cycle is low. Here the strategy would be to take out the development cost in the first introduction because you may not have the chance to make another introduction for an improved version may already be in the production line ready for introduction. This makes this industry one of the most highly risky industry today. The industry is surviving on new products and selling it to the same people again and again.

Fast change in technology would mean high training cost and low chance of spread of the uses of technology.

Large numbers of people are being engaged in customising, maintenance and up-gradation of technology. These people are certainly helping but are unable to achieve and making this vast tech population the risk of obsolescence at an early age they would or actually require continuous training paid by the user organisations which further ads to the cost of the product which the society pays.

The question today is: what is the limit of this cost and can we not bring in some kind of longevity in the technology.

Normally if an operating system changes with it the hardware the application software and the whole gamut of accessories will also change. It may not be out of place to mention that automobile technology is relatively constant what changes are the facilities and, therefore, penetration of this technology is quite deep. The usage of this technology can be seen even in remote areas of the world.

One can also see the growth of mobile technology which is also IT but come as a packaged product and the customer has to just use it. Where as a computer system is like components which has to be assembled by the user on continuous basis. For a complete computer system one has to have a package of software, hardware, accessories and services like broad band etc. Any change in one component would mean change in the entire chain.

The dilemma

The dilemma of IT is to make or not to make the entire technology user friendly simple for the people to use freely. IT technologists must think how to make IT less transient then only that such a powerful tool can reach deep down to the lowest level of the society for them to benefit from. I am sure any technology which does not benefit the common mass of the population is in the danger of being thrown out over a time span.

Another dilemma of IT today is how to keep it up to date at the same time affordable, usable and reduce transient nature of the product. One must appreciate if some one has to change right in the middle of implementation of a complicated application software or hardware or operating system, who will pay?- “customer off course” is what IT companies would say.. All the developments are concentrated in the developed countries and developing countries like India and China are only providing low cost labour.

Virtual Reality and the Future of Mankind

The Virtual Reality world is much like the present world in that it is “all what you make of it” and thus that truth will become quite evident for those who pursue their destiny and desires in the world of VR for pure entertainment or even enlightenment. Think of it as an Unlimited World with unlimited possibilities for the human mind. All this is possible and there are unlimited worlds to seek out, learn and create.

VR reality world like the World of AI and BioTech life longevity, computer-human interface is almost here and it will be when Mankind becomes his own God. The VR world has an incredible future and anyone who ever stopped to consider it would see that vision, and really who is to say this current life experience is not a bit of that concept anyway?

It fits Ockham’s Razor a lot better than the concepts derived from ancient religion and thrust into the present; right? I mean if one if perfectly honest with their observations of the life experience in this realm. The implications of a robust VR technological future is intense from a monetary standpoint; multi-billion dollar industry.

You could change the world with that level of income stream. Consider if you will all the monies spent on entertainment, mental health, rehabilitation, recreational drugs, distance learning, simulator training, prescription drugs like Prozac and then double it and double that again every decade 3 more times or 30 more years and that is where I see the future of VR. Unfortunately what bothers me is the slow march towards all of this, as it is needed right now.

Another issue will be as the full extent of VR permeates our present world is that the social implications, work ethic and blurred reality are something that also must be worked out to prevent total collapse of productivity of the human civilization. VR can be heaven on Earth so to speak, or it can cause the real world to turn into a living hell. “The Matrix Reconsidered”
