A keyboard takes input from a user to exact a desired outcome. The origin of this interaction goes way back to the ancient abacus. In this case, a ONE Tech writer uses a keyboard to produce a series of pixels on a monitor which resembles letters. This develops into a string of words and from these words, meaning is derived.
By 2018, there are many bold technological developments. These developments can surprise even the smartest of developers by giving valuable insights and analytics. We are no longer at the early years of the computer age and the capacity of the digital world has transcended basic tasks.
Engineers, developers, architects, data scientists, executives, and more, can now learn from the evolving digital world, enabled by AI and IoT. The main areas of digital advancements we will explore are Digital Twin, Smart Chat Technology, Cloud Edge Computing, and Reality Immersion. Let us look at how these topics are now shaping the physical world – much like how the physical world has shaped its digital counterpart.
As a disclaimer: While there are many other impactful digital advancements, these are the digital advancements that has interesting interaction with the physical world.
What exactly is a digital twin? Simply put, it is a digital replicate or model of a real-world subject. What makes a digital twin so important is that it allows for accurate analysis of real-world objects, services, and procedures, in different and non-invasive ways.
So how does digital twin technology impact the physical world?
From Amazon’s Alexa to Apple’s Siri, there has been a meteoric rise in smart chatbots. With a surging demand for better and more intelligent virtual assistants, enterprises are responding with a push in developments of advanced conversational platforms.
So, what can you hope to get out of future AI chat experiences?
Cloud Edge Computing takes sections of data that is deemed valuable and stores it to the cloud. Usually, the cloud captures a lot of data – even seemingly useless data. Edge computing differs by funneling useful data through implementation of a cloud edge gateway, acting as a checkpoint between that which collects information and the cloud itself.
Here are the benefits to Cloud Edge computing:
Painting an immersive reality requires broader strokes than just that of virtual reality. The subcategories of reality immersion include:
With many big names (Facebook, Google, Apple, Microsoft) investing and developing exciting roadmaps for reality immersion, let us focus more on the impacts of this disruptive technology on our physical world:
