Rate this:
With new technologies like the Apple Watch, Fitness and Health Monitors, Smart Glasses and Virtual Reality Goggles, Smartphones and Tablets, a person living today has instant access to more information than the entire planet had access to just 50 years ago. Everyday we generate the equivalent of 80 million times the amount of information in every book ever printed throughout all of human history. There is so much data being generated by devices connected to the Internet today that humans can no longer curate that content; we need machines and algorithms just to make sense of it all. In the last 250 years technology has changed everything about our life and the world around us. But there will be more changes in the next 20 years alone than in the last 250 years combined. With supercomputer-level technology the size of a coin embedded all around us, smart sensors we wear or ingest that can tell we are sick before we even know ourselves, self-driving cars that are hundreds of times safer than human drivers, and AI-based personal super-assistants, not only will the way we live be forever altered, but also the way we work, the way we learn and the way we love. The Augmented Age is coming and it will be disruptive. Get ready for life in the smart lane!
