10 Ways Technology is Changing the Way We Live
At one point of time, the idea of computers interacting with one another was like a wild dream only a few highly imaginative folks could entertain. Lets fast forward to today, not only are we closer to exploring life outside of earth, we’re now driven around by computers and technology.
New technologies are not only contributing toward our daily lives and making things easier, they’re practically changing the way we live. From our bikes to how we learn and how houses are been built, these machines are bringing a brand new dimension to the way we interact with the world today. And no, they are not sci-fi’s, these are the real technologies we already have access to.
This blog-post will explore and unravel how technology is changing the way we live, from the impact they have on the cost and standard of living to how much information and data about the human body we now have access to.
- Architecture and Housing
Housing is a magnificent and huge aspect of our lives. With 3D rendering, architects and designers now produce their models and prototypes with more explicit detail.
3-Dimensional is no longer a new technology, but its impact is yet to completely fizzle out. Before the 3D technology, architects had to work with cards that could only be visualized in 2D or create their presentations by hand. Their presentations were only average and would almost always require and need a lot of explaining before the clients got what details were involved.
Stefan Kaertner quoted, “3D rendering in architecture is a complex process that produces life-like presentation of buildings in image-ready prints.”
“With 3D rendering, clients can take a virtual tour of their buildings before actually commissioning it, which lets them have a first-hand experience of what their buildings would be like. This was impossible before the advent of 3D technology,” says Kaertner.
- Big Data
Data and information helps us to remove the speculations and guess work from what professionals do.
Big data is making a huge impact in the world today. It’s not just the benefits and advantages we derive from the availability of big data that is astonishing and surprising, but the technology behind how we generate and create meaningful data as well. From wearable’s such as the Apple watch to IoTs, we’re witnessing data rush in the real-time.
The growth of data is now so terrifically high, some research is pointing that by the year 2020, about 1.7 megabytes of new information will be developed for each person every second.
Who are the people that are benefiting from the massive inflow of data? Industries like the insurance, health and of course leading technology and the marketing companies would lead in the need for big data.
- Mental Analysis and Health
Technology is bringing better treatment of the patients with health conditions that were previously extremely difficult to diagnose. With the data now available to the doctors and healthcare companies through the advancement and betterment in technology, not only are healthcare providers able to easily track the patient health record, they now easily proffer the treatments.
- Internet Accessibility
To a huge amount of the world’s population, access to the Internet is still considered to be a luxury.
Bringing Internet access to some of the world’s most remote areas is one of the goals of the world’s leading tech leaders such as Mark Zuckerberg and Sundar Pichai. Both have been able to see their dreams come to life thanks to the technologies like unmanned solar-powered aircraft and balloon powered Internet.
Not only are these new technologies helping and enabling the world get connected to the Internet by bringing accessibility and usability to the areas that never had them, but the cost to access the Internet in areas that have them are been lowered and reduced as a result.
- Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality or VR has redefined how we consume the content. The industry created by this technology has potentials to be worth as much as around $30 billion by the year 2020 according to tech M&A advisory firm Digi-Capital.
Content usage and consumption through the VR is constantly on the rise and over 2,00,000 developers have already registered to build games for the Oculus Rift in the year 2015 alone. With virtual reality VR changing the way people consume content, the market that caters for its hardware is definitely going to be massive. According to the data from Statista, the VR hardware marketing would be worth over $5.2 by the year 2020.
Technology is contributing and attributing immensely to how we live in today’s day. Pretty much everything that we do today will be done very differently in just a couple of years that are to come. As more and more countries create policies that allow and enable drive-less cars to carry passengers, smarter cities are developed in the third-world countries. Technology will continue to change and define how we live.
