5 Core Technologies that will Transform Humanity and Human Digital Experiences

1. Embracing the Future with Voice Technology

  • Reading back books, email, web pages and voicemails
  • GPS navigation systems
  • People with disabilities benefit by:
  • Using voice to give commands to mobile phones, digital devices or smart assistants
  • Controlling aircraft flight displays
  • Real-time translation by speaking into any digital device and translating a language
  • Facebook can translate a post in your native language and Google can translate entire websites
  • Hands-free voice-based automotive experiences include commands for playing music, unlocking your car or making a phone call

2. Seeing is Believing: Image Recognition

  • Pattern recognition, object detection and classification to differentiate between people or objects
  • Image recognition software is used to read, analyze and accurately evaluate human emotions; Expedia’s site, Discover Your Aloha, uses custom-built facial recognition software to identify reactions so offers can be made to match the reaction
  • Finding location based on images — By default, smartphones embed GPS coordinates stored as metadata in each photo. Using deep learning techniques, Google’s PlaNet solution can recognize locations based on details in a picture, such as landmarks, random roads, and houses
  • Autonomous and Connected cars Image recognition is in navigation and guidance systems; Recognizing and differentiating between objects, such as traffic lights, a person, and even snow and rain to avoid accidents

3. High-tech Biometric Methods

4. Mixed Reality

  • Google Cardboard or Google Daydream VR transports users to different virtual worlds
  • Sports fans feel as if they’re part of a professional sports team through Oculus Rift’s game, VR Sport Challenge
  • The viral game, Pokemon Go, uses AR to allow players to use their smartphone cameras to find game characters in a physical world
  • Microsoft’s Hololens brings the physical and digital worlds together and lets users engage with digital content and interact with holograms in mixed reality
  • London’s luxury hotel, One Aldwych, has a bar that virtually transports customers to the distillery where one of its whiskeys is made

5. Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence

  • User behavior analytics — Detecting patterns of suspicious behavior for detecting credit card fraud. This could come from Image, Voice or Biometrics
  • Linguistics — used for Natural Language Processing and Natural Language Understanding
  • Marketing — Mainly for analyzing data, efficiently target audiences, forecasting
  • Insurance — Machine learning for computer-generated insurance information, automating the claims process
  • Search engines — For ranking, understanding search queries, understanding documents such as classifying pages and detecting spam
  • Healthcare — Technology for medical diagnosis, identifying diseases, personalizing treatments based on predictive analytics, collecting records, sending and receiving real-time data from wearable devices, sorting patient queries via email, transforming handwritten text into digitized text
  • Filtering spam — Artificial Intelligence for email spam filtering
  • Drones — powered by AI, drones, especially military drones, can make decisions and operate automatically
  • Self-driving cars — AI for autonomous vehicles includes technology for making accurate decisions and for computer vision, automatic speech recognition, object detection
  • Games — To generate responsive interactions, like the Deep Blue chess-playing computer
