Digital technology has been responsible for some incredible feats of technological advancement and digitisation since it was introduced to world. As the world we exist in continues to barrel towards complete digitisation, we subsequently are exposed to more threats and risks, including email fraud, ransomware, and phishing. While the increase of risks of digitisation are inevitable, the good news is that systems like email security companies and ransomware protective sites are ready and able to assist with all prospective threats as they come to light. Digitisation is not unique in its risks – every new revolution presents them.
Digital tech like blockchain are working to resolve the issue and provide us with a promising future of digital privacy and security. Digital technology has given us far more to be thankful for and in awe of, rather than afraid of. We have never before been in such a transitional period, in an era where such expansive and rapid technological advancement is taking place. We are seeing new innovations and entire revolutions being introduced and taking place all the time. Going into 2019, there are many digital technologies that are going to change the world, but perhaps the most innovative is artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has been such an infamous feat of technological advancement since the dawn of its reality, and it continues to soar higher and higher, exceeding all expectations. There are duelling AI that are made with the sole intention of bettering themselves, on their own. It is simpler than it sounds. Essentially, one AI will create an image as realistic as they possibly can, while the other must decide if the image is real or artificial. This is just one way that “duelling AI” can be harnessed; practically any domain can be shaped by computers, including voice and video.
We are seeing machine learning and AI become mainstream business tools, with the introduction of chatbots that assist customer inquiries online and over mobile. This is a small innovation at face value, but it is far more intricate than the majority can imagine. The chatbots of today are frustrating to deal with, for the most part, but the technology is continuously being shifted and strengthened, and going into 2019 and beyond chatbots are very much likely to become key business tools.
Through machine learning and AI in action, we have been given the humble (yet inspiring) beginnings of AI in the home. Virtual home assistants like Alexa and Google Home are providing homeowners and businesses alike with the unique and revolutionary chance of being able to have a home that does a lot of tasks for them. From opening curtains and blinds and controlling the lighting, to setting home security systems and controlling appliances throughout the home, Alexa and Google Home have already proven their value, and they are only just now beginning to take off. The future of digital technology in the home is bright, and we are only experiencing the very beginnings as we speak.
From duelling AI, to machine learning virtual assistants as part of the home, AI and machine learning are undeniably one of the biggest innovators in digital technology to date, and they will remain front runners as time moves us on. The future is propelled forward by digital technology, and AI and machine learning are sitting in the driver’s seat as the frontrunners for digital tech innovation and revolution.
