Every other day, we see something new in the field of technology. It is not possible to guess which new gadget will become the next coolest thing for young people. Also, it’s hard to guess which new website will become a top new social media platform. The advent of smartphones, technologies like 4G-LTE, artificial intelligence (AI), online banking and other similar services are already making people’s lives easier than ever. Here, we’ll cover five new technologies that are already making headlines in 2018:
AI is one of the few technologies that excites people in 2018. Google Home was released in 2016 and is now gaining popularity among fans of the latest technology. Nowadays, people prefer to use smart personal assistants like Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri to perform simple tasks like checking the time, scheduling appointments, etc. Tech giants are also working to integrate these services into the devices we use in our daily routine. For example, we can now use Google Home to adjust our room temperature or turn off the lights. This is just the beginning. In the coming months, AI technology will attract more and more people.
Self-driving cars will typically hit the roads by 2022, according to technology analysts. Technology companies such as Google, Apple, Intel and many others are working on the development of this technology. Automakers are also working hard to make the dream of self-driving cars a reality. Human error is the main cause of most traffic accidents. But, with the introduction of self-driving cars, the number of road accidents will decrease, experts say. The reason is obvious: a computer doesn’t drink alcohol, talk to friends, or do other such things.
Companies like LG, Samsung, OPPO, and ZTE are working on foldable smartphones. It is very likely that this new type of smartphone will attract a lot of users. Samsung has already announced that its foldable phones will hit the market this year. The company has been working on this technology for several years. For some people, it will be uncomfortable to use a foldable smartphone. But for many, these phones will offer cool things like a better display, extra screen size, and not having to worry about screens cracking.
New OLED TVs promise a better gaming experience. The user enjoys extra high definition color while watching a movie on an OLED screen. These types of TVs are making headlines in 2018. Over the next few years, a number of large companies are expected to bring their OLED TVs to the market. Let’s see where this technology takes us in the future.
Reports suggest that 5G (fifth generation of mobile technologies) networks will become a reality this year. Many telecommunications companies have reportedly already tested this service in many parts of the world. 5G will offer a speed of 10 Gbps, according to experts. The technology will use low power and allow many users to connect to a single device at the same time. But, the cost of using 5G service will be higher than that of 4G-LTE service. We have to wait and see how this technology will change the way we communicate.
