What will life be like in 2022 is projected to IBM experts
IBM's experts have made some bold predictions for 2022. Recently, they presented a list called "5 in 5", where they described the five most important technological developments which, in their opinion, will appear in our lives over the next five years. First place in this list of artificial intelligence (AI).
AI is considered a harbinger of the future scientific breakthrough. At the moment, we have a "dispassionate" AI which can beat a man in a game of chess and other games, but one day mankind will create "passionate AI", which will be able to understand the diverse world of emotions, will be interesting to talk to, and it is almost impossible It is distinguished from the man.
IBM predicts that AI will soon be able to analyze speech and writing, and thus track changes in our mental condition. Application on smart phones capable of normal speech will notice signs of depression and warn in advance about the development of this disease, leaving plenty of time for early treatment.
Over the next five years, as predicted by the IBM, experimental systems will be improved and accessible, allowing anyone to keep track of important changes in speech.
IBM also predicts that in 2022 the AI will allow people to have a vision of the superhero. Already, we have lenses and glasses, which allow us to see the world in a different light, in the literal sense of the word - from infrared rays to microwaves. The Company expects that the AI will make the lens more powerful that will give us new opportunities - people will see much better than ever.
For example, if you drive a car in the fog, AI recognizes the difficult natural conditions and switches to the light waves that pierce the mist and allowing you to see through it.
Their third forecast for the "macroscopic", which will allow to see everything in great detail.
Today, thousands of satellites are orbiting the Earth. In real time, they transmit data on air temperature, monitor criminal activity, the movement of troops, the harvest and so on.
IBM specialists suggest that by 2022, all of the data from the satellites can be combined and then the analysis of related phenomena, such as climate change, to become more efficient and accurate.
Lab on a chip
And we are waiting for medical diagnostics using miniature devices - "labs on a chip", smaller devices that can fit in the palm of your hand, allowing any self-diagnose their health. Already there are several prototypes of such "laboratories". These devices can be a bit of a fitness bracelet that will let you know whether you have health problems. Of course, these devices can not replace physicians, and in 2022 their work will remain very important. But IBM predicts that tiny biochemical laboratories become so commonplace that your health data will be displayed on the screen of your smartphone. Imagine if these "lab on a chip" connected to the health care system, then your local doctor will monitor your health, and in case of severe symptoms, come to your aid or even save your life.
The smart sensors
And finally, the "smart sensors". These tiny devices that detect gas leaks, temperature change or pollution, already exist, but they often require human intervention for troubleshooting.
As predicted, the newer versions of these devices are not just connected to the Internet, they can also detect faults literally in real time and to correct some of the problems yourself.
What do you think, will it all a reality in the near future?
