One of the greatest agents of change in this modern world is without a doubt technology. Technological breakthroughs actually come with some sort of solutions to the most important global challenges. If this subject is interesting for you, then you must definitely have a look at the following most amazing 2015 technological breakthroughs.
Developing the artificial intelligence
As you probably already know, there are some online programs that can translate very good from a language to another. This is actually what specialists call artificial intelligence. For example, Skype Translator it doesn’t only perform real-time, but it can also mimic the tone of the specific speech so it can make sense in another language. However, this type of product doesn’t exactly mimic how human intelligence works. In 2015, Eugene Groostman which is the name of the latest computer program in this category has ”beaten” the Turing test. This actually means that there are now programs that can fool people into thinking they are actually talking to another interlocutor. Some will probably say that the future means fooling people, but it is not. The future actually means building human-like thought in silicon.
No more wires
Most of us are annoyed about having wires all over the house. A great solution to our issue could come in a short period of time, due to the fact that scientists are working to develop some sort of batteries based on a sodium-based, complex metal hydride. Applied Materials is trying to advance solid-state battery technology which will actually be able to hold a lot more power than lithium ion. Moreover, this will be possible with a far more affordable manufacturing technology. Therefore, everything could work on batteries. This is definitely one of the most amazing 2015 technological breakthroughs.
Nowadays we have plenty of robots in factories that are programmed to do lots of complicated and detailed things that a human person can’t actually do it. In 2015, Amazon was working on developing some sort of robot arms that can pick things off shelves, and mobile Kiva robots that can actually move different things on the factory floors and take them to workers. Furthermore, robots for personal use such as Pepper and Jibo were planned to make it into consumer homes. Manipulation and locomotion are the two most important categories where scientists work to develop different types of robots. However, scientists say that we should expect to see increasingly more robots in the near future.
