The first thing to understand about new technology is that it always seems bad at first.
This is true for two reasons. First, because new things are usually worse than old ones in the short term, and second because anything that changes society must either appeal to a fringe group or be imposed from above, and a fringe group of early adopters is not a representative sample of humanity.
To take a recent example: have you heard about our amazing new innovation? It’s revolutionary and perhaps even a little scary: it allows anyone to publish thoughts on any subject instantly and cheaply! It’s called “a blog,” and it may be changing the world. Well, actually, we don’t know if it’s changing the world. But we do know what people think of blogs: they hate them.
Why? Because they’re full of trolls and flamers who write nasty things like this article I just read in Newsweek:
Newsweek has been blogging up a storm lately (1, 2, 3), but much of their blogging is done by interns who seem to have no interest in journalism, news or even the English language in general…
And By “blogging”, I mean having someone else post your stuff on blogspot so you can get some google juice…
A while ago, a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to help him with a project. He had an idea to make a blog about futuristic technologies and every day he would write an article that would talk about some cool new technology. I agreed to help, because I am pretty interested in futuristic technologies so I thought it was a cool project.
When I entered the website called Futurism, I immediately liked what I saw. The website is pretty modern and the articles are written in a way that makes you feel like you are part of something big; almost as if you were working for NASA or some other organization that works on futuristic inventions. A lot of the articles have pictures or videos of the inventions so it is really easy to get excited about them!
For example, one of my favorite articles was about how scientists are using AI (Artificial Intelligence) to help them find planets that might be habitable for humans. It’s really fascinating stuff! Another cool invention that has made Futurism’s homepage was an app called “CellScope” which allows doctors from all over the world to connect through video calls and diagnose patients remotely without having to travel long distances. There is even more amazing articles like this on their website, so if
The world of technology is always changing. New innovations in science and engineering seem to be every day. The next big thing is always just around the corner. This blog will aim to explore the exciting new things that are coming out of the labs about future technologies. On this blog you will find information on new inventions, and even perhaps a look into what might be possible in the future.
From robots to cars that drive themselves, there are so many exciting things happening in this world of technology. See what everyone is talking about!
In a world of rapid technological change, where new products are launched every year and innovations are introduced every day, it is hard to keep up. Many people find themselves hesitant to embrace new technologies because they feel they don’t have the skills or knowledge to use them.
At Future Technology Blog, we’re here to make things easier for you. We’re passionate about new technologies and the way that they can change our lives. We’re not tech experts, but ordinary people who want to understand more about the impact that technology is having on our lives.
I thought this was a good time to share my views on the future of technology, what we are working on and how it will benefit the world. It’s been a while since I posted anything on our blog and since then there has been a lot of progress in computing, robotics and artificial intelligence. We have developed new technologies that will advance the world forward by decades, if not centuries.
Some people think the future is far away and irrelevant to them, but it isn’t true. The future is now. Technology today is advancing at an incredibly fast pace. What was science fiction a few years ago has become reality today, and in a few years from now all our lives will be completely different as a result of technological advancements.
Here are some examples of technology that will change everything around us in the near future:
I am not a techie, but I like to keep up with what’s going on in technology and how it impacts the world. And I’m pretty sure that in the future, technology will be amazing.
I have been thinking about what it will be like when we can teleport anywhere on the earth, have robots that do our work for us and communicate with one another using mind-reading devices. What kinds of things will happen as a result?
Will we still need fossil fuels? Will people become obese because they don’t have to move their bodies anymore? Will governments collapse because people are teleporting away from them? What would happen if everyone could read each other’s minds? How will this affect relationships?
I think these are all exciting questions to ponder, and I’d love to hear your thoughts!
As a society, we need to get better at designing things that are safe by default. This is particularly true of software and artificial intelligence. I want to focus on three examples of design flaws that make technology unsafe by default.
1. Software updates. Updating software should be automatic and transparent, so the user has no control over it. But this means that the security of millions of people can be compromised by a single software bug.
2. AI control systems. Self-driving cars, drones, and other robots will have to make choices in situations that their designers never anticipated. The programmers need to build into these systems a way for humans to understand why they did what they did, and maybe even get them to do something else instead.
3. Default privacy settings on social media sites. We shouldn’t have to go into an account’s setting menu and change privacy settings for each individual feature; opting out should be the default state for all features until users turn them on individually in their profile settings menu.
