Every other day we see something new in technology. It’s not possible to guess which new gadget will be the next coolest thing for the youth. It’s also hard to guess which new site will become a new leading social media platform. The advent of smartphones, technologies such as 4G-LTE, artificial intelligence (AI), online banking and other such services are already making people easier than ever. Here we will discuss five new technologies that are already making the headlines in 2018:
AI is one of the few technologies that is exciting to the people of 2018. Google Home was released in 2016 and now it is gaining more popularity among fans of the latest technologies. Today, people prefer to use intelligent personal assistants like Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri to perform simple tasks like checking time, setting appointments, etc. The technology 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 the temperature of our room or turn off the lights. That’s just the beginning. In the coming months, AI technology will attract more and more people.
The self-driving cars often run on the roads in 2022, according to technology analysts. Tech companies including Google, Apple, Intel and many others are working to develop this technology. Car makers are also working hard to make the dream of autonomous cars come true. A human error is mainly the cause of most traffic accidents. But with the introduction of autonomous cars, the number of road accidents will fall, experts say. The reason is obvious: a computer does not consume 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 kind of smartphones will attract many users. Samsung has already said its foldable phones will hit the market this year. The company has been working with this technology for the past few years. For some people, using a flexible smartphone will be uncomfortable. But for many, these phones will offer cool things like better screen, extra screen size and not having to worry about the screens getting cracked.
The new OLED TVs promise better gaming experience. The user enjoys extra high-resolution colors while watching a movie on an OLED screen. These kinds of TVs will be heading into the year 2018. In the next few years, a number of leading companies are expected to introduce their OLED TVs into the market. Let’s see where this technology brings us in the future.
The reports suggest that the 5G network (fifth generation of mobile technologies) will become a reality this year. Many telecommunications companies are already reportedly testing this service in many parts of the world. 5G will offer 10 Gbps of speed, according to the experts. The technology uses low power and allows many users to connect to a single device at the same time. But the cost of using 5G service will be higher than the cost of 4G-LTE service. We have to wait to see how this technology will change our way of communicating.
