A leading cryptocurrency and blockchain expert has given more insight into the amazing future that awaits everyone, all thanks to rapidly advancing and evolving technology.
These technologies are currently being developed with many already reaching concept and even beta deployment stages. We’ll examine some of these technologies in this post.
Virtual Reality to Trigger a Revolution
For most of us, our interaction with the internet has been largely limited to just two dimensions. In fact, it’s just currently limited to the interactions we have with our phones, laptops and tablets.
But, with the incredible technology of virtual reality, we’re on the cusp of a new mode of interaction that will be amazing. This innovative technology and its current advancements will play a significant role in how we move forward henceforth. According to Rafal Szymanski, Founder and CEO of Global Tech Makers,
“The development of virtual and augmented reality applications is going to trigger a monumental change in the way we shop, surf, and, in general, experience the internet”,
Even more, he believes that the virtual reality tech will dominate the app development scene for a long time in the near future, considering that its usage will be more widespread than the currently limiting perspective of retails, ecommerce and gaming.
“What we are about to witness, and what’s already beginning to happen, is VR spreading its potential across an entirely new domain of industries, including education, healthcare, sports, recreation, and many more.”– He says.
In fact, it appears that the tech is already gaining momentum and widespread usage as evidenced by a study published by the American Society of Anesthesiologists in a journal.
The studies reached the conclusion that VR can help ease children’s pain and anxiety immediately before and after surgical operations.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) to Usher in a New Era of Transformation
We’re living in truly exciting times right now. Artificial Intelligence, which used to be the stuff of science fiction is fast becoming real. Japan now has a robot newscaster as well as a world recognized robot called Sophie, all thanks to the rapidly advancing frontier that’s called AI.
This technology has gone from being a buzzword to a real life creation. While it’s still in its infancy, we can expect increased growth and advancement in this arm of technology. The only problem is people are getting worried about out readiness for this era of tech or the lack of it.
The scarier part though it is seeming unlimited capabilities and potential. There’s almost nothing artificial intelligence can’t play a key role in. from processing big data to powering a robot.
AI has proven to be more than just a high-tech buzzword. In fact, it’s amongst the future technologies which have long caused controversy amongst industry experts.
While some are particularly positive about its rapid development, others express concerns on whether or not we’re entirely ready for its yet untapped and virtually unlimited potential. While these concerns may be legitimate, the reality is that the tech isn’t going anywhere soon.
In fact, we’re more than likely to see this tech play a big role in the new era of marketing. Digital marketing is growing in leaps and bounds right now, and AI can help it go even further in its reach, and results. Szymanski believes this is what every seasoned marketer desires:
“AI can help us redefine the way we treat and read information,” he explained. “One of the biggest issues in the field, as it is in almost all other industries, is the human error factor. AI takes that away. Not only does it solve it completely, but it does so by speeding up processes and producing precise, detailed, and spot-on conclusions which allow marketing specialists to properly segment and target their audience to achieve the necessary results at a much lower cost.”
Even with this, he still understands that it is capable of so much more:
“Of course, that’s not to say that marketing is the only industry to benefit from AI technology. In fact, there are plenty of recent examples of how the technology is transforming multiple fields. As an owner of an IT company, I can say with absolute certainty that more and more of our clients are showing increased interest in AI.”
The current buzzword for 2017 and 2018 is blockchain. In fact, this is the most hyped technology this year, and looks poised to be the same, come 2019. This is not surprising considering the huge potential that this technology has for transforming our lives.
With its distributed ledger technology, cryptocurrency ecosystem, smart contracts platform and so much more, this is the third technology whose impact we’ll be feeling in the near future. In fact, now that big tech companies like IBM, Oracle and Microsoft have gotten into the sector, it’s bound to blow up in even bigger ways.
Even though cryptocurrencies have performed very poorly this year, the technology powering it hasn’t slowed down. If anything, it’s grown in leaps and bounds with every sector and industry trying to get in on it.
The sector alone has seen an increase of 4000 percent in job vacancies over the last 12 months, with many companies willing to pay over $110k in annual salaries.
Rafal Szymanski, who is currently invested in blockchain projects -including a blockchain social network called FutureNet– through his company, Global Tech Makers, believes the benefits of the technology are numerous. According to him:
“Blockchain removes the need of an intermediary. In a world where everything is delivered by a middleman, this is truly fundamental. It has the potential to disrupt virtually any industry.”
Regarding FutureNet, and its role in coming blockchain economy, he says,
“In turn, FutureNet helps us in the development of our products such as 24bas or EviGuard. So, you see that we are good friends and partners with FutureNet founders. At the same time, I’m not presented in the company as a head or a member of the board, but I am a chairman of FutureNet Foundation council. It’s an NGO that tends to change people’s lives for the best. It’s an honor for me to be a part of the foundation since its very start. We’ve already helped many people and constantly publish the information on the official website of the foundation https://futurenetfoundation.org/ and on Facebook. FutureNet Foundation unites those who are not indifferent to people in need of help in all parts of our planet. Quite often I recall to the words Roman Ziemian (FutureNet founder) once said: “If we help at least one little kid to fight for his life, it means that we can leave this world knowing that we’ve lived for a reason.”
These technologies are here to stay and spawn a new era of technological advancements, while helping man make even more giant strides.
