If you think that self-driving cars are a technology for the future, think again. We are currently living through a technological age that delineates the future.
The Age Of Information and The Future
Technology is the single human discipline responsible for allowing the human race to evolve our world. It’s at the forefront of everything we do, with vast improvements in technology year on year, the human race has grown and evolved to adopt to an age of information.
The new age we currently find ourselves in extends far beyond blacksmiths and metal workers. Some will even argue that technology may be humanity’s downfall as we develop at such a rapid rate that there is no processing time to allow humans to assimilate into technology. This is evident in the way technology has replaced countless jobs and left many without a viable source of income.
The wondrous part about this new age of information we are currently living in is the helpful tools that we have at our disposal to change our circumstances at any one given moment. The Internet is the driving force behind all major change and people have the ability to act on the many opportunities to improve their lives.
Looking Back To Look Forward
If you think that technology has not empowered the world, think again.
In the year 1820 the average lifespan of a human was no longer than 35 years. 94 % of the global population lived in dire poverty and just under 20% of the world population was literate. Fast-forward to today’s times and there’s no denying that the human population has seen a major spike since 1820.
Today the average lifespan for humans is 70 years or older, just fewer than 10 % of the world’s people are challenged by extreme poverty, and over 80% of people are literate. These are radical changes that are a direct result of human endeavour, and our continuous relationship with technology that has brought about the age of information.
Get Geared For The Future
The rapid advances in technological industries have empowered people with an array of nifty devices, which are smaller and more compact than the computer that witnessed and played a role in man landing on the moon.
Smartphones, tablets, desktop computers, and laptops are the order of our day. Tech is getting smaller, more compact, and most of all, portable. Just think of mobile keno and you’ll soon realise how the world is getting smaller and more compact all the time. People are moving away from complicated, equipment-heavy games and activities, and steering clear of cumbersome devices that limit their movement to a static desk.
The world is online, and with devices that are capable of accessing the Internet and completing tasks on the go, we have more freedom of movement than ever before.
What about the Future of technology? These are some of the new developments set to become a reality in the very near future. They are going to challenge and change your world, but change means we are growing and progressing, which is exciting.
Cars Will Drive You
It’s an odd thought, a self-driving car designed around you. Gone are the days of being oddly perplexed at the lady in front of you doing her makeup whilst trying to shift stick. Or the guy getting his morning dose of caffeine as he boldly turns the wheel from side to side in a horrifying display of driving skill.
Oh no, cars of the future will be programmable and self-driving. Guided with GPS technology and equipped with advanced sensory systems, self-driving cars will decrease the road death toll to almost 0. That’s a lot to think about, and we may just have given air travel a run for its money.
Technology In Nature
Global climate change, rising sea levels, mass production, and the increase in population has led to a world that needs to wake up and start smelling the coffee. We can’t keep using more from the earth than we put back. If we want to live on the earth for many generations to come, we need to act now for a green way of life, not for us, but for the future of our families.
Once again technology is spearheading the fight and it’s exciting to know that new tech will eventually contribute to clean sources of energy. Solar panels are forever developing and becoming more energy efficient and smaller. New technologies set to harvest wind and water supply will also make vital contributions to a happier, healthier planet.
Information For All
The key to unlocking your potential lies within; technology has uplifted people and their personal development has soared with the new trends and advances in technology that allows for an unlimited array of information.
People can educate themselves on anything, from the comfort of their favourite armchair. With this is mind the future of all education may just be online. The future of technology aims to bridge that gap by providing all people with high quality education at a fraction of the cost of conventional methods.
