You may have heard of the phrase Internet of Things or IoT. This concept is pretty new but already has a major impact on the future of computing. The concept is fairly simple. Basically, more and more devices are being connected to the internet in a smarter fashion.
Did you know that there are now smart thermostats? Instead of manually programming them when you’ll be out of the house, they’ll just know when you leave and turn off the air conditioning for you. And it’s not just your thermostat, many companies out there are making smarter household devices. There are fridges that can keep track of what foods you have in their, toasters that can be controlled by your smartphone, lights that can change depending on your mood, and cars that drive you instead of you driving them fitness collars for dogs are just some of the everyday “dumb items” being connected to the web as part of the Internet of Things (IoT).
The world is moving towards connecting manual devices to the internet and making them smarter. These decisions have many societal implications though, especially when it comes to cybersecurity or personal privacy. But there’s also a huge potential for IoT to completely transform the world in ways we have yet to see.
In the future, people may be shocked to learn that we had to do manual things like, make our own coffee or drive to the grocery store. While you may not experience working with an Internet of Things device, you should be aware that it will become a large part of the future of computing.
We all must have heard the term “Artificial Intelligence” in our life at some point.
But what exactly it is?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not a new word and not a new technology for researchers but it has been there since a very long time (from 1943).
AI is the well known technology that everyone talks about today that has now become a part of each and every field. Some of the scope of AI includes:
AI in Social Media: Social media platforms like Facebook use AI for face verification. Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) (subsets of AI) concepts are used to detect facial features and tag your friends. Machine learning algorithms are used to design your feed and advertising based on your interests.
LinkedIn uses AI to offer job recommendations, suggest people you might like to connect with, and serve you specific posts in your feeds.
Snapchat leverages the power of computer vision, an AI technology to track your features and overlay filters that move with your face in real-time.
Twitter is using AI to identify hate speech and terrorist language in speech. The company discovered and banned 300,000 terrorist-linked accounts, 95% of which were found by non-human, AI machines.
AI in healthcare:Knight Career Institute and Intel have made a collaborative Cancer Cloud. This cloud takes data from the medical history of cancer (and similar) patients to help doctors in making a better diagnosis. Preventing cancer from moving to higher stages is its most effective treatment at this time.
The UK’s National Health Service uses Google’s DeepMind Platform to detect health risks in people through apps. The system can analyze retinal scans and spot symptoms of sight threatening eye diseases.
Another such example is “Coala life” which is a company that has a digitalized device that can find cardiac diseases.
AI in chatbots: AI chatbots – Siri, Cortana and Amazon Alexa, Amazon Alexa(Echo) are devices that use speech recognition and Natural Language Processing(NLP) to perform an ever-growing range of tasks on commands.
AI in the autonomous industry: For a long time, self-driving cars have been buzzboard in the AI industry. The development of autonomous vehicles will definitely revolutionize the transportation system.
Waymo’s AI based self-driving car. AI collects data from the vehicle’s radar, cameras, GPS and cloud services to produce control signals that operate the vehicle. Advanced deep learning (DL) algorithms can accurately predict what objects in the vehicle’s vicinity are likely. This makes Waymo cars much more effective and safer.
Tesla self-driving cars use computer vision, image detection and deep learning to build cars that can automatically detect and drive around without human intervention.
Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, says-
“The Tesla system consists of two AI chips in order to support it for better road performance. Each of the AI chips makes a separate assessment of the traffic situation for guiding the car accordingly. The assessment of both the chips is then matched by the system and followed if the input from both is the same.”
AI in gaming: “AlphaGo” is the very first AI program that was able to beat a professional human player, “Fan Hui” in October 2015, on a full-sized board with no handicaps.
F.E.A.R (First Encounter Assault Recon) is a survival horror first-person shooter video game. “GOAP” (Goal Oriented Action Planning) technique in its AI system. Specialty of this game is that the actions taken by the opponent AI shooter are unpredictable because the game is designed in such a way that the opponents are trained throughout the game and never repeat the same mistake. So, they get better as the game gets harder.
AI in agriculture: BlueRiver Technology developed a robot called “See and Spray” which uses computer vision technology like computer vision to monitor and precisely spray weedicides on cotton plants.
Berlin-based AI startup PEAT developed a mobile application called “Plantix’‘ that identifies potential defects and nutrient defects through images captured by the user’s smartphone camera. The company claims that it achieves pattern detection with estimates of upto 95%.
AI in marketing:Amazon’s recommendation provides 35% of Amazon’s revenue. Amazon makes use of AI and ML to recommend products to their customers. Amazon looks at the products that you have been browsing and recommends very similar products to you.
These are some of the areas covered by Artificial Intelligence. How you think AI will benefit us in the future?
Holla folks! It feels so great to get nominated for such an amazing award, it’s my first Liebster on WordPress. I’m immensely grateful to Rajini Madhavan for nominating me, she has a wonderful travel blog.

There was a time when one used to visit a fortune teller to get a prediction of his future, to know his lifespan, to know how well he will live. Well, it’s still the same, but it won’t be the same for longer. How can you just randomly trust someone telling you about your future just by looking at you? But what if we tell you that in the near future, you will be able to get the prediction of your future life, that will come with a guarantee?
It’s been years of studies and research on DNA and it would have taken more without the help of latest computer technologies. The latest technologies have made it possible for scientists to study a huge number of people’s gene information. Scientists have finally found what is the most common thing in most people suffering from the health issues that are kind of similar. They figured out that most of the common diseases are the result of a group of genes acting together in a particular manner.Here they are up with an most extraordinary technology “Genetic Fortune Telling Technology” – Know your future from birth.
Yes, Genetic Fortune Telling is a technology that will help in predicting your future, by studying your genetics, and that all at the time of your birth.
Genetic Fortune Telling is a technology that studies DNA of an individual, in terms of predicting chances of getting heart attacks, cancer,of getting hooked on tobacco, and of being smarter than average, other major diseases in future, in the form of a DNA report card at the time of your birth. It can even predict the level of smartness a new-born will have when grown-up just by studying your Genome. It’s also being called as “Genome-Wide Score”.
Genetic Fortune Telling is surely a thing of future, but with the recent developments, it’s right at our doorsteps. Now, it depends upon us, that how well we handle this technology that might change our lives or ruin it.
Do you think it will revolutionize the world in the right way? Or it will add up to the urban mess that we already are?
The importance of mobile phones in our everyday life and activities is undeniably unending. This is so because there is ongoing tremendous transformation in that mobile phones are no longer the ordinary communication device it used to be.

Isn’t it interesting to know what our life would be like without the Internet? Although you can’t even imagine it, that time existed kind of like the 90’s, sort of when there was no internet…
There are lots of people who have been bought up without internet but these days it’s hard to imagine life without the internet. But thankfully, internet has came into our life. But what would it be like tolive without the Internet? Would you dare to live such a terrible scenario if it suddenly collapse or went off-line?
Banking, ATM’s, communication of all types, TV and Media World, websites, online transactions, etc. will be hanged and almost life will come to a standstill. Bussiness would be highly effected , access to information and resources cut. No WordPress😳
What if you want to buy a USB and you have to get off the couch, get dressed and go out on the cold street. And on top of that, you have to do it only during opening hours..
As every coin have two sides. Lets focus on the different perspective of this situation.
Well, apart from teenager screaming because they cannot log in to Facebook or Instagram. It comes down to how much we personally use the internet and for what? Some of us hardly use internet where other pretty live there live around it.
Some of the things that would happen if the internet was not in our life. A person who is sad , would be talking to family instead of posting feeling sad on Facebook and Instagram. Most of the relationship would be caring rather than being possessive. People would be watching TV with family rather than surfing on YouTube. Newspaper would have been the source of news and not Twitter. People would write words from heart to express their feeling rather than writing some prescripted line from those fifty sites. Photos would make more meaning than just for the sake of getting likes on Instagram. Everyone will have a social life instead of a social networking life.
Well , I agree without internet everything would be harder, boring and more uncomfortable. But ,are we using it wisely or we have created our own second life which includes only you and your virtual world(internet).
Whether in person or on the internet, being stalked is a terrifying and isolating experience.
Social media is a tool, like anything else. You can use it to keep tabs on your friends, but you can also use it to make someone’s life miserable.
With the inception of social media, this landscape of word “stalking” has drastically changed from harmless to harmful as the evil inside the human is becoming dominating.
Social media enables an unprecedented amount of access to people’s photos, whereabouts. With sites like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter, you are made aware of someone’s every move – whether they intend for you to know or not.
One of the biggest problems with social media today is the amount of passive information that is available.
Like…if I post a photo to my Instagram account, even with privacy settings intact, I am at the mercy of how my followers interact with my post.
When there is a gap between the information you have and the information you want, uncertainty is born.
Complaints of cyber bullying have increased by 19 per cent compared to the period between February 23 and March 24 and women have been complaining of vulgarity, stalking and misbehaviour on cyberspace. We’re sharing too much of our personal data online, even when we think we’re playing it safe. Case in point: Californian police arresteda 21-year-old man last September after he broke into the house and bedroom of a 13-year-old girl, whose address he’d discovered by studying her posts on Instagram.
last October,Japanese policecharged a man with assault after he used his victim’s Instagram selfies–and in particular the reflection in her eyes–to pinpoint her local train station. This is an incredible and alarming story.
Young men and women absolutely need to know how to make good decisions with the information they put on the internet. Unfortunately, anything you post that’s publicly visible or anything you send privately via text or message app can be used against you.
There has never been a better time in history to be self-isolating..
We seem to have a lot of free time on our hands as we are all stuck indoors, and I wonder what you are doing?..like some making videos while singing from balconies …offering a virtual cocktail hour, the group video catch-ups on Zoom or Skype… building the old bonds again via WhatsApp, Facebook or Instagram. You know that ,whats the most amazing part?? It is that the children to whom parents use to keep away from phones and laptops now willingly make them use it for online classes.
People are more busy discovering there hidden interests…being cooking your favorite dishes and enjoying it peacefully..some people are currently learning a language that they’ve always wanted to learn and that’s great for them ….writing blogs or contents, reading books that grab your interest…playing instruments, dancing, singing , painting, gardening and moreover getting time for physical fitness ...
Streaming on YouTube, Amazon Prime and Netflix that they need to throttel their stream to preserve the bandwidth needed for remote working.
Text messaging still flows freely. WhatsApp becomes so essential that some countries try to nationalise it. Chat groups are created to assist self-isolating neighbours.New groups are constantly created that nobody remembers which group is for what?
Countries and States have closed their borders and travel is impossible, yet somehow the world feels more connected than ever.
