Can you imagine the world without electricity and light bulbs? Before these inventions, people did not have much choice. The day was over as soon as the sun was gone because they depended on natural light. Technological innovations have changed our lives in recent years - for the better.
Another great example that revolutionized the world is the wheel, at 3,500 BC Before it, imagines that transportation was limited to what each person was capable of carrying. Then came the cars, the planes, and each year it's easier to get around even greater distances in less time.
The future promises a lot of news. In fact, many of them are already part of our daily lives and some of these cutting-edge technologies will definitely change our world in future.
Technological Innovation that can change the future:
3D printing – In recent years, 3D printing has become possible thanks to 3D printers. 3D printers follow the same principle as 2D printers, but instead of printing ink on sheets of paper, the 3D printer prints objects by superimposing thin layers of materials such as plastic, clay, resin, and others. From 3D software or a 3D scanner, it is possible to model objects and then print them with the 3D printer. The printing possibilities are immense with the 3D printer; it is practically possible to print all possible forms. The only constraints are the size of the printer and the imagination of the user.
3D printing technology allows you to create lighter, stronger and more complex structures cheaper than traditional methods of working with the material. Except for the high cost, the ordinary consumer may well take advantage of the technology - for this, it is not necessary to be an engineer and to understand the intricacies of 3D printing. Desktop Metal already offers a program that will make a model for the user, ready for printing. All that is required is to indicate the characteristics of the item you need.
Blockchain – There was the bitcoin boom and a lot has been said about digital currencies. But now it seems that the blockchain is the new darling of the time. Simply put, it is a decentralized network architecture that avoids duplicate records.
In the beginning, it was created with the intention to ensure reliable transaction bitcoins between stakeholders. But because it has many applications, many people believe this is one of the technology innovations that are a big bet for the future.
Virtual Assistants – Another of the technological innovations that aim to make human life easier is virtual assistants. Through advanced technology, they are able to understand everything you say and interact with. Rather than helping out with weather forecasts, traffic, scheduling meetings, or search terms on the Internet, virtual assistants can in the future help with anything, including your health.
For example, if one day you are not feeling well, they will be able, through your symptoms, to indicate remedies and even give advice. The most famous assistants today are Alexa from Amazon and Siri from Apple.
Internet of Things – Ordinary objects become "smart", i.e. they are able to generate, analyze and exchange data with other objects. The information gained from this data is enormous. Computers can themselves reflect on whether they know something or learn something, maintenance cycles of machines, bridges, airplanes, etc. are optimized, pacemakers and glucose pumps can independently communicate and optimize with the doctor, indeed whole factories are able to interact with other factories, to control, to steer. Even today, smart forks measure our eating habits and protect us from stomach ulcers. Smart Cigarettes analyze our smoking behavior and help us get rid of the tobacco, or it signals us smart fitness trackers, not only that we have increased and moved too little, no, they also enable the virtual fitness coach directly in the ear with an individual training program.
Over the next 7 years, well over 50 billion networked objects in the "Internet of Things" will communicate and communicate with each other.
Nano Materials – As a nano-material called components with a size of less than 100nm. These materials are very special for two reasons: their quantum effect and their structure. The tiny structure has a very large surface area relative to its volume, as large as any other material. The quantum effect can be used to change material properties in terms of material thickness and electrical conductivity, optical behavior or magnetic properties.
At present, nano-materials are used in particular in regenerative medicine and diagnostics, in textiles, in IT or in cosmetics.
Smart cities – The integration of digital technologies and space planning can lead to a fundamentally new way of life in the cities of the future. The sensors and sensors that flood the cities will monitor pollution levels, noise and traffic density in real-time and shift some of the troubleshooting tasks to automated programs and robots that can take the necessary control measures at such a speed that residents will never have to stand again in traffic jam or write a complaint about noise near the apartment block.
It must be noticed that these technologies likewise pose difficult governance challenges, both domestic and cross-border. Due to the lack of administration system, incompatible licensing and tax assessment necessities, to obsolete trade agreements, we can't just expect that these innovations will naturally take root and bear fruits.
Public and private partners must work firmly together to set up the system and foster the environment for these new innovations to release their positive potential while alleviating the potential harms. Specifically, the partners should adopt the multi-partner and human-centered agile governance approach to allow space for experimentation and to assemble contributions from a diverse set of participants.
