While debates regarding the impact of technology have been here for years, and some say that it will damage our society, we cannot imagine our lives without tech advancements. Since 2019, most daily activities now related to technology and the market haven’t stopped. That is why it is best to know how technology has changed our world since 2019 and how it can power up our lives now.
1. Internet of Things (IoT)
Internet of Things (IoT) technology integrates sensors, software and other tech tools. This technology can ease communication, connectivity and data exchange within various servers. For example, let’s take smartwatches as IoT devices. In addition, smart homes are also made up of IoT devices, like wi-fi, smart fire extinguishers, AI home appliances and so on. And all these technologies make our life twice easier.
2. Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Artificial Intelligence has become increasingly popular during the last few years. It has a vital meaning in various others, including healthcare. It is used to understand human behaviour and actions, so technology can provide relevant responses and support communication through chatbots and other tools.
AI is also a part of self-driving cars, maps, facial recognition apps, as well as autocorrect features. AI helps people to perform daily tasks easier and faster while also helping companies reduce operational costs and assist employees.
Even though drones have long been used only for playing and video making, now they have become a vital part of many industries. Drones are now used by the military during war and in natural calamities. Rescue teams also use drones to better view the location and know where suppliers need to be provided.
One of the interesting ways of using drones in 2023 is by farmers who monitor their crops and agricultural lands remotely. Drones can also be effective in geo-mapping, surveying land, as well as monitoring forest reserves.
4. Apps for Electric Cars
While the popularity of electric cars is snowballing, the ecosystem for EVs still requires changes and improvements. Luckily, the tech market has already developed an electric app. This allows users to easily find nearby EV charging points and pay from their phones. This can greatly improve the EC market and help owners drive safely with no worries.
5. Virtual Reality (VR)
Alongside the growth and development of Artificial Intelligence, virtual reality is another trending technology that has already significantly impacted society. Doctors use virtual reality to practice before surgery to improve outcomes and set accurate diagnoses.
VR is also used in e-learning space, making it easier for teachers and students to provide and get information in a more effective and understandable format. EdTech startups build products powered by virtual reality to explain practical concepts to students.
