IBM has released five predictions on technologies that will transform humanity in 2017. In the framework of the “5 in 5” IBM predicts not only the technologies that will be possible in 5 years, but the likelihood that they will be adopted on scale range.
For 2017 by the IBM predicts that machines can read people’s thoughts and can easily recognize the person they interact.
“From Houdini to Skywalker to X-Men, mind reading was a fancy present for decades in all works of fiction. Soon, however, it will become reality,” IBM researchers say.
“Scientists from IBM are among those working on 2017 Technologies the discovery of a method of connecting the human brain household devices such as computers and smart phones,” explains those from IBM. The examples given by researchers at IBM are calling the acquaintance only with the power of thought or movement of a cursor on the screen exclusively using mind.
Also passwords will disappear online, say those from IBM. Our biological composition will become key to our identity, say those from IBM. “Imagine that you could go to an ATM where you can withdraw money just by telling your name on a sensor that will identify unique patterns present in your retina,” speculates specialists from IBM. Therefore, processing of biometric data such as face identification, retina or voice to be used for identification, being more secure than traditional passwords.
Another innovation that will become prevalent in 2017 Technologies is the ability to generate electricity from all types of movement: the move from bicycles and even the water flowing through pipes. “Kinetic energy will not be wasted,” says IBM.
Also, IBM experts say that mobile phones will help remove eliminate “digital barrier” that exists today between rich and poor. “In today’s global society, the smooth running of economies is becoming more decided the level of access to information. In five years, the gulf yawning between those with access to information and those who do not will be reduced significantly, thanks progress that mobile technologies will know. in five years, 5.6 billion people will own a mobile phone, ie 80% of the world population. for example, in India, the peasants who could not read and write can already use mobile phones with voice recognition to find out where the market can get the best price for their grain or to find out weather, so having the opportunity to plant the best time. ”
The 5th prediction made by the IBM is the disappearance of spam. Specialists say that the American company allows personalization technology, so that only the truly interesting will reach every person.
