How the Future IT Enabled World Will Look Like?
We all knew that a couple of decades from 2015 to 2035 were going to be very happening technologically. While we have already seen some great changes, some elements are beyond recognition. We are yet to witness these amazing changes. Don’t you remember how in 1995, we saw the birth of the internet? Back then, computers used to be chunky, powered by the Windows 95. We used the dial-up internet in cubicles. There were no fancy, touch-screen smartphones.
The TVs were flat screen and there was no concept of surfing hundreds of channels. Look at the world today. You get access to tons of entertainment channels with your Xfinity Basic Cable. You have an iPhone XS Max, and you have a curved, slim LED in your living room. If not all, you must have some of these amazing things! These are the changes, which we are talking about.
So, how the world is going to change technologically in another 20 years from now? What does the future have for our homes? Will we have flying cars everywhere we gaze? Will the world around us transform completely? Let’s see which innovations are going to knock us sideways!
We are already at the turning point of 3D bio-printing organ tissues. The process includes depositing bio-ink of cells in layers. We are looking forward to having a functional living tissue to be used in labs. The tissues can be great predictors in drug functions as compared to animal models. In the future, we are expecting this technology to be capable of printing complete human organs. It has the potential to do that. Imagine having critical human organs printed such as heart, liver, and kidney. This technology can save thousands of lives. We expect that by 2020, the said technology will be ready to be used by pharmaceutical companies. This can further refine it and identify safe and better candidates. It will also ensure fewer failures during clinical trials.
19th-Century Grid Ends
Do you that by 2020 we expect global electrification? People in Europe and the United States take electricity for granted. Every country out there has the privilege to use this amenity as much. In many parts of Africa, Latin America, and Asia, electricity is a rare commodity. Around 1.3 billion people are still not connected to the grid. Can you imagine that? Do you know that around 1.5 billion people don’t even have a regular access to electricity? If they use oil lamps as a backup, that’s a safety hazard. In many countries, power blackouts are a huge problem in a number of mega cities. Problems like power theft is also a common thing in countries like India, South Africa, and Brazil. A reliable, regular, and safe power supply will have a revolutionary effect on such countries. There will be greater productivity and long-term huge leaps in the educational sector, healthcare, and overall quality of life. The grids of the 19th century are clearly too expensive.
Internet of Everywhere
We are almost on the verge of the phenomenon called “internet of everywhere”. The idea is to make it accessible to everyone out there, rich and poor. It wouldn’t be wrong to call it the democratic age of the internet. The excitement related to the internet of things will just be a tiny footnote in history. Imagine having internet-enabled, solar powered, ultra-cheap HDTV screens wherever you go. Shopping centers, bus stops, restaurant tables, all operated on a central advertising model. Picturing this reminds us of an old Tom Cruise movie called Minority Report. Looks like it is going to be a reality sometime soon.
The End for Cancer
The debilitating reign of complex, critical diseases is going to end soon enough! Thanks to the emergence of accurate, real-time diagnostics. They will have the ability to precisely monitor the dynamics of the immune system, cancer spread, intestinal flora, pre-diabetes and many other conditions in real-time. This is will completely change the nature of medication and usher in a brand new era of healthcare. Except to witness fundamental shifts the healthcare sector. The time when we could really see the end of cancer is close!
Healthcare with Data-driven Technology
We are already aware of the fact that the data in the world has an exponential growth. In order to stay on top of the market competition, analyzing massive chunks of data is mandatory. Analytics are going to have a dramatic shift from reporting to prescriptive and predictive practices. This will dramatically improve the abilities of healthcare providers. They will be able to provide the best help to the injured and ill. Moreover, the data-driven technology will provide a personalized healthcare experience. This will also help in recording the impacts of genetics, behaviors, and environmental factors.
I really think all these changes are incredible. On a lighter note, I can’t wait to see my Spectrum Select Channel Lineup work with AR and VR technology! Imagine having a screen every time you attend a call and you see the person talking to you.
Welcome to a more automatic and smarter world!
