Flying cars, robot butlers, internet for everyone?

There are innumerable futuristic technologies like these that promise to change the world as we know it, in the coming years. The future of technology comprises of anything and everything that we can imagine, brought to life by innovation, to fulfill our needs, comforts, and wishes, which determine our future choices. Today, technology is present in every facet of our lives – from the moment we wake up till the time we go to bed, it assists, supports and makes our lives easier.

Over time, our evolving needs have led technological innovators to push further and introduce ground-breaking innovations that meet the demand.

With the increasing use of data, more and more devices can now be connected. In the months ahead, there is not doubt that technologies like AI (artificial intelligence), AR (augmented reality), VR (virtual reality) etc will continue to redefine user experience.

A recent report mentioned that any individual looks at their phones for more than 2.5 hours and makes about 35,000 decisions on an average, in a single day. While that sounds like a mammoth task, AI or artificial intelligence is one of the technologies that helps us do this efficiently and effectively.

From digital assistants recognising voices and operating various smart devices as per instructions to simple object recognition and information search, AI is intricately woven into our technological lives. AI even powers the security features like face recognition, voice recognition and fingerprint technology.

What’s even more exciting is how the combination of this technology with augmented reality is giving rise to a whole new dimension! This has digitally amalgamated the physical and virtual world, thus transforming the user experience.
