5.) Digital Assistance
Google has advanced the features of Google Now, which is the digital assistant that forces you to act based on what’s on your calendar. Apple vowed that Siri would be more intelligent, Microsoft launched Cortana, Facebook came out with M, which stands for Messenger, which doesn’t only keep track of your diary but it is also able to be demanded to purchase presents for loved ones or book reservations at restaurants and finally, Amazon debuted Echo. According to the professionals, digital assistants are intelligent but, by 2020, they will be sophisticated enough to think more like a human and consider context. A digital assistant is as of now smart enough to let you know you when you have an important meeting. A human assistant is smart enough to tell you to leave a meeting you don’t want to be in.
4.) Self-Driving Cars
In order to see into the future, specifically into how we will drive in 2020 all need to do you look back at 1957. The electricity industry in the US had an ad in the newspaper with the vow for a life of leisure in the future with a currently well-known image revealing an almost empty freeway and a family in a car with a glass bubble roof that is driving itself. When in a discussion on self-driving cars, the year 2020 doesn’t only mark an image of the future, however, it also marks a promised deadline. Nissan and Mercedes-Benz have already logged 2020 down as the time that they begin to develop and plan the introduction to cars that can direct itself through the streets of cities without the need for a driver.
This is the term that was apparently invented by somebody who didn’t have a thesaurus by his side to explain a platform of devices that are all aligned via the internet. It’s one sign that people are moving from the age of the smartphone to the revolutionary era of the smart toaster. Currently, there are 13.4 billion different artifacts that are connected to the world. This includes smartphones, smart TVs, computers, tablets, the odd fridge and the robotic vacuum. Juniper Research guesses that figures will reach up to 38.5 billion by 2020. Technology testers at Telsyte guess that the number of combined devices in the average American home will hop up from the recent figure of nine to at least 24 and the internet-enabled white good will become the usual, just like smart TVs are now usual.
2.) Wearable Devices
The wearable market has, as of currently, been a scenario full of wins and losses. Google Glass, the smart glasses that were supposed to be the next big thing, are now widely irrelevant and is worn mostly by people known generally referred to as “Glassholes”. Whether this new phrase says something about wearable technology or more about the crappy marketing strategy of providing a new product to a select elite class is open to criticism, however in the view of most people, it’s obviously the latter. Disregarding that one unfortunate fact, a recent study concluded that smart glasses will be everywhere on manufacturing shop floors, healthcare, mobile workforce and 3D modeling cases.
1.) Tablets, Smart Boards, and Multi-touch Boards and More
In modern day America, tablets and smart boards made themselves a part of the classroom in schools across the country. For tablets to have an impact, there needs to be digital content for every curriculum. Students are able to access and download things called e-books from various school websites and from there they can begin a new kind of studying experience. This is not a typical e-book, it is actually an interactive book that also contains a virtual lab, where students are able to click on hyperlinks and watch videos. They can also drag and drop certain icons in order to conduct science experiments.
