The fields of technology and technology are full of news and forums, but there are certain stages that we must stop at because it will be a defining moment in extending certain areas to shape science and work in the next year and these are the 10 most important technological areas that began
1. Drones for Agriculture:
This technology depends on building a drone with special sensors, cameras, electronics and systems so that it is cheap to help farmers increase the yield and reduce the wastage of it. It is also used in the management of water resources and better management of the agricultural cycle. Before this technology, the owners of advanced farms used to buy some images from the satellite and their analyzes to ensure the health of their plants before harvesting, but this was very expensive, and these planes have provided them with a lot in terms of renting or buying them when the price is less than 1000 dollars, and it also provides them with information More accurate and clearer images, especially as you are shooting under the clouds. In addition, it is available at any time and is easy to use.
These aircraft provide 3 types of information. The first is accurate information about areas where irrigation problems occur or problems in the soil or areas within the crop that may be infected with epidemics or fungi . Second, these planes provide a set of visual and thermal images of how healthy the plants are. Finally, the planes give you the necessary information every hour and every day, giving you the ability to develop your own farming and management of the farm
2. Autonomous Smartphones:
Certain models are built to provide insurance when working on smartphones. There is one of the companies that built a platform called Silent Circle – this company works in data encryption – they built an application that when you install it on your phone, all your phone calls, text messages or online transactions are through their servers that encrypt your data in a certain way to become protected against any intrusion It was. Many are expected to be created in the coming years, especially after warnings of hacker attacks and the expectation of major breakthroughs in the coming years
3. Brain Mapping:
After decades of working on the brain to increase the human ability to better understand the brain, by working on a map of the brain that is more detailed than before, providing neurologists with information that may be the most complex of the most complex organs of the human body.
In recent years, neuroscientists have made significant progress toward understanding how the human brain works. In the coming years, the European Human Brain Project will attempt to create a computer simulation system for the brain, while the American Brain Initiative will seek to develop a map from a comprehensive perspective of brain activities. In the coming years, these two projects will become the most important source of information about the structure of the brain and how it works.
4. Smarter Neuromorphic chips:
Tech companies want to produce electronic chips or microprocessors similar to what the brain does so that we can build smarter computers and interact with their surroundings. Qualcomm made its first step in this field when it started manufacturing some toys for children and their beds with a smart feature to take care of their children., Qualcomm began thinking about putting these smart capabilities inside an electronic chip that can manage energy efficiently. Interact with image and sound.
We’ve written before about Stephen Hawking’s fears that the rise of artificial intelligence technology might turn against humans… I think these fears are worth reckoning.
5. Gene modification:
I know very well that there is a religious controversy over gene editing, but unfortunately this is one of the growing technologies around the world. But there are some processes in gene editing that are done with the aim of preventing diseases.
These modifications are being tested on monkeys so that a tool called CRISPR is used to modify DNA in order to give them better traits, and this of course will be applied to humans at an advanced stage.
6. 3D Printing at the Micro Level:
They are manufactured with materials of different types that help to manufacture different and more complex types of products. Although 3D printing technology was a breakthrough and we were able to do a lot with it, its potential is still limited, especially since the materials it deals with are still limited to a certain group of materials. But what do you think if this technology deals with more different types of materials, including semiconductors and ink.
Scientists from Harvard University are already working on this. Research has developed so that a team from Princeton was able to manufacture an electronic ear and try to integrate electronic systems with human tissues, but this field still needs a lot of development to manufacture stable and workable systems.
7. The Age of Smartphones:
We have become in the era of smartphones that abound every day and attract many every day users and developers of their applications as well. Of course, the smart phone and tablet market needed some time to take this wide spread among people, and this allowed many developers to manufacture many applications that serve the users of this sector of electronics in order to become of greater benefit to its users. Applications have evolved to include cloud computing and storage, such as Google, Microsoft, Apple, and Dropbox.
The beautiful thing is that the quality of these applications did not stop there, but it became interesting to design applications for closed work groups and organize communication between group members, and these applications try to allow the group to review their transactions and discover what has been implemented of their plans and review their files as well. Do you see what the coming year will bring us of surprises in the smartphone sector and its applications??
8. Virtual Reality:
It took 30 years of research to be able to develop a concept or theory of virtual reality using advanced technological glasses. This technology started when you imagine playing some video games in 3D that makes you a real person inside the game. This was the idea of Palmer Lucky, who prototyped his conception in their garage at the age of 16.
At the age of 21, he founded Oculus VR, which invented the Oculus Rift, a wearable headset for virtual reality based on the dreamed game. Facebook bought the company for $2 billion in the spring.
Although the idea is good and the glasses use high-tech technology, it still needs a lot of work to be available to the public
9. Agile Robots:
Computer scientists are working on creating robots that can stand, walk, run, and move normally like a real human in whatever conditions they are in. The problem is that this technique needs a great understanding of how to link the anatomical way of walking in humans with the mechanical parts in a science called biomechanical engineering.
Meet Atlas is a robot built by Boston Dynamics before Google bought it in December 2013 that can walk on rough terrain and normal flat terrain, but it can’t balance quickly, it walks like a clumsy man, and its practical value is limited.
When these technical tools are improved, they can be used in disaster rescue operations, and they can perform routine tasks and help people improve their lives – Stephen Hawking differs – although Meet Atlas is not complete yet, but it is a strong and good start in this field .
10. Smart grids to generate energy from wind and sun:
The use of information management tools and artificial intelligence within power plants helps in raising the efficiency of power generation, especially with renewable energy plants.
Intelligent systems have been implemented at a wind farm east of Colorado. The systems pace each wind turbine every 2 seconds and every 5 minutes station data is sent to main servers 100 miles from the station. Weather and wind information is extracted using satellites in order to raise the efficiency of turbine generation, especially with low wind speed.
But the problem is that this area is still under a lot of research to put it into practice on a large scale.
11. Payment through social media:
The year 2014 is the first factor in which we hear the possibility of shopping and paying through social networking sites or that technology companies provide payment services through them. Thanks to this, it is given to applications such as PayPal’s Venom and Square’s Cash. These applications have become social networks in their own right, making Apple the first to implement something similar to these services in Apple Pay, and Facebook is already preparing at the beginning of 2015 to knock the buy button that allows users to buy And pay from any offer on Facebook with a click of a button and Twitter and SnapChat who will try to enter this market
12. The internet of things:
It is the communication of a group of smart devices with each other through the existing Internet and this revolution began to appear this year and it helps in the introduction of new systems and new devices for communication. Indeed, many technical companies have begun to work on them, such as Google, AT&T and Intel, and this technology is expected to revolutionize Too Big 2015
