7 Massive Ideas That Could Change the World

7 Massive Ideas That Could Change the World | Technology of the Future | Scoop.it
From electric planes to power generated from deserts and asteroid-killing tech, here are seven world-changing ideas.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas

Hayley Regalado's curator insight, March 21, 2013 10:37 PM

This article by Wired.com discusses conceptual ideas for the future.

The first item discussed is the idea to make planes rechargeable. With global warming on the rise and concerns for environmental health increasing, it comes with no surprise that this idea was created. There have been some break throughs in the automotive industry in environmentally efficient design. There are developments for electrical or rechargeable cars but there is no product readily available for the mainstream consumer. Evidently, if environmentally friendly cars are still in development it may be some time before rechargeable technology is available to aircrafts. With the above statements there is the need to continue to research further into this topic to gain a better understanding on the possibilities of airline and automotive technology.

Big idea 2 – Fuel the Planet with Micromachines is about using man made molecules for energy. This idea is quite far from development. A micro scale battery will be required for these molecules. This is bigger thinking for a bigger future and not much can be said at this point but I feel to understand the possibility of this technology I should do more research. In my opinion this technology is something to expect in the distant future.

Big idea 3 – Spray Wi-Fi hot spots on everything is an idea about preparing for widespread WiFi. According to Wired, the WiFi and 4G network industry will contribute several trillions of dollars on a global scale by 2020. To keep up with demand Chamtech Enterprises has developed a spray containing millions of nano-capacitors which is more conductive of signals than the standard antennae rod. Personally, I am not sure how I feel about this kind of technology. This research is very useful to my essay by supporting the claim that technology needs to be updated for the purpose of keeping up with high demand.

Big idea 4 – Turn Deserts into Power Plants is not a new idea but many questions have been asked; how do we harness the energy? What is the most optimal way of channelling this energy? and what is the most cost effective way of directing energy to the required destination? With the power of technology there is always an answer.

Big idea 5 – Put Digital Displays in Your Eyes and this article is not talking about the “Google Glass” kind.

Big idea 6 – Declare War on Incoming Asteroids, do we have the technology for this? Are we prepared enough?

Big idea 7 – Build Skyscrapers from Diamonds, as the title suggests the proposition is to consider alternative materials for construction. Diamonds are formed from Carbon, the hardest element known to mankind. Imagine this near indestructible material used for construction the security and aesthetic appeal would be phenomenal. There is technology readily available to manufacture man made diamonds (small diamonds). However, the creation of diamond is a lengthy process and the costs to manufacture diamond on bigger scale would be unbelievably expensive.  This is a great concept, highly ambitious but not currently plausible.

The Man Behind the Google Brain: Andrew Ng and the Quest for the New AI

The Man Behind the Google Brain: Andrew Ng and the Quest for the New AI | Technology of the Future | Scoop.it

There’s a theory that human intelligence stems from a single algorithm.
The idea arises from experiments suggesting that the portion of your brain dedicated to processing sound from your ears could also handle sight for your eyes. This is possible only while your brain is in the earliest stages of development, but it implies that the brain is — at its core — a general-purpose machine that can be tuned to specific tasks.
About seven years ago, Stanford computer science professor Andrew Ng stumbled across this theory, and it changed the course of his career, reigniting a passion for artificial intelligence, or AI. “For the first time in my life,” Ng says, “it made me feel like it might be possible to make some progress on a small part of the AI dream within our lifetime.”

The Future Of Web 2.0 Websites (Possibly Web 3.0)

The Future Of Web 2.0 Websites (Possibly Web 3.0) | Technology of the Future | Scoop.it
Web 2.0 is the terminology assigned to define websites that have been refurbished from an earlier version of the internet.

 

Since most Web 2.0 features are free, websites such as Facebook, Wikipedia, etc. have developed remarkably fast and, as these sites grow, more innovative features are being added using new technologies. In fact, Web 2.0 will continue to grow in the future. 

 

The simultaneous growth of these new trends is outside the scope of Web 2.0’s definition and this is where the next generation of the internet will begin. The third generation of the internet – the Web 3.0 – will completely alter social networking.

 

‘Web 3.0’ is a network of information that can be routed both directly or indirectly using computers and includes television quality video, three dimensional reproductions of images, enhanced reality, man-made semantic barometers, and the all-encompassing sensors – wireless and broadband.

Liveti Liiveti's curator insight, March 14, 2013 10:30 PM

With the evergrowing usage of social networking and video sharing mediums by contemporary society, it was inevitable that such an idea as Web 3.0 would be brought up. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. have some form of impact on everyone's daily lives. I myself constantly check my Facebook news feed, sadly even once every 5 minutes. This article states that the idea of Web 3.0 'will completely alter social networking', this is something that I will anxiously await to see. How will the general public react to such alterations? Will it be too much of a jump?

 

Facebook changes, such as the conversion from profile views to timelines (http://mashable.com/2012/02/07/dislike-facebook-timeline/) and the introduction of Graph Search (http://maximizesocialmedia.com/social-media-agencygraph-it-facebooks-graph-search-the-future-of-social-media), have been met with some very negative reviews. Many have panned these changes as they have been so accustomed to previous versions.

 

Web 3.0 will completely alter social networking, but is that a good thing?

 

 

Adam Woodbridge's curator insight, March 27, 2:55 AM

As computers and software progress, so does the internet. Millions of people use the internet everyday and it has to be improved constantly. Web 3.0 is the next level of internet which will be a greater tool than Web 2.0 is at gathering and producing information, and connecting people. 

Derek Phillips's curator insight, March 28, 6:44 AM

Due to the web rapidly grows in both users and content, it has, for many people, become a part of everyday life, whether it be in the workplace or for personal use. As a result of this, it is essential to improve the capability and resources available publicly through the web. This is being done within Web 3.0.

10 Ways Artificial Intelligence Can Reinvent Education

10 Ways Artificial Intelligence Can Reinvent Education | Technology of the Future | Scoop.it

For decades, science fiction authors, futurists, and movie makers alike have been predicting the amazing (and sometimes catastrophic) changes that will arise with the advent of widespread artificial intelligence. So far, AI hasn’t made any such crazy waves, and in many ways has quietly become ubiquitous in numerous aspects of our daily lives. From the intelligent sensors that help us take perfect pictures, to the automatic parking features in cars, to the sometimes frustrating personal assistants in smartphones, artificial intelligence of one kind of another is all around us, all the time.

This is a very interesting article that briefly explains what all the compnents look like. There is a a short video at the end showing the new technology and several things it can do. 

Hayley Regalado's curator insight, March 21, 2013 6:42 PM

This article discusses technology that can project a touch screen on any given surface. The technology is called 'OmniTouch' and is similar to the X-box Kinect technology. This technology is not going to be a major technology in future because it is close to being available now. The prototype for this product is complete and is currently undergoing tests. The advantage of OmniTouch technology is the ability to increase the size of projection. According to the article, OmniTouch has the capability of choosing optimised display settings for every new surface. The current issue with the prototype is the cumbersome size and shape. This problem is being addressed in future prototypes.

 

In my opinion this new technology can be perceived in two ways… Either it will seem intriguing to users but will decrease in popularity as technology enters an era predominantly surrounded by voice control and gesture control; or the technology will bring great success to mobile computing and portability. This article will contribute to my research into projected touch technologies such as the Ericson’s Company spider device.
