Future Of Computing And AI

By Harshil Barot @Harshil_Barot

Computers were invented between 1833 and 1871. As it is commonly known, the Analytical Engine was invented by Charles Babbage, who worked on it for about 40 years. Since the analytical engine was powerful enough to perform simple calculations, it qualified to be the first computer.

And as a result, high tech platforms like the money transfer app Prillionares came up. Since then, computers have evolved steadily from one generation to the other. Over the years, as we move from one generation to the other, windows of possibilities are being opened wider than we could imagine.

Future of Computing and Artificial Intelligence

Today computers are found almost everywhere. It is almost impossible to mention a place that has not yet adopted computers. From schools, hospitals, workplaces, hotels, airports name them. Contemporary society is so dependent on computers that many functionalities come to a halt when the computers suffer a breakdown.

This is enough proof to suggest that computers are essentials in our day-to-day activities. Whether work-related or just for entertainment, many would agree that our world today depends on computers.

Therefore, as we move forward into a more digitalised world, we must be aware of what to expect from future computers. Today's computers weigh less, are relatively cheaper, and are significantly cheaper than computers of the 20 th century.

In addition, they come in all sizes, from desktop computers to handheld smartphones and even smartwatches. Furthermore, what makes today's computers even better is their ability to communicate either physically or wirelessly with another computer all over the globe, forming the famous globe village.

This property has brought more convenience to our lives as we have a firmer grasp on time than we had a few decades ago.

However, it doesn't stop there as scientists have promised even faster and convenient computers in the future. With the introduction of features like artificial intelligence, neural networks, and natural language processing, computers of the future will be a lot more involved in our daily activities than we might even imagine.

Even though some of these features have already been involved in a few cutting-edge technologies, scientists agree that they haven't fully utilised them. In this article, we will be looking at what to expect from future computing devices.

The first and probably the most interesting feature s the wearable computer. Even in today's computers, hardware has been sized down to attain the required portability. Try picturing a computer that handles a system and has a data processor that is supported by the wearer's body instead of the exterior surface.

It sounds like a scene from your favourite science fiction scene, right? However, this is one of the futuristic computers, with different components cooperating to deliver technology and science to environmental and situational problems.

The most noticeable advantage of such a computer is that users may use their hands to complete another task. This will give the word multitasking a whole new meaning.

In the mid-1990s, a biologist mathematician, Leonard Adelman, became the first person to link genetics to technology. A DNA-oriented computer would depend on data located in patterns of molecules in a synthetic DNA strand.

It means that, unlike conventional computers that store data in silicon chips andconvert them into 0s and 1s, DNA-based computers will be able to process all possible outcomes simultaneously.

Such computers will be heavily relied on, especially in institutions that require decoding strategic information, such as the military and banks.

For those who love entertainment, future computers also have something in the store, something in the name of virtual reality. Virtual reality means that a user is immersed in a virtual environment and gets to interact with the "environment" as one would do naturally.

Today the virtual reality is very costly and is only used for modelling in big firms. However, future computers promise to exploit this field of virtual reality to teach, entertain, and even design. Governments will be able to use this feature to experiment with their service delivery and improve where necessary.

Also, VR will be adopted in schools to enable students, through virtual classrooms experiment, to explore ideas and come up with knowledge structures.

Medical personnel will also benefit from this futuristic character of computers. It will enable them to analyse three-dimensional images of internal organs and thus develop better images of organs within the body.

Computers have already established their place in our world; however, future computers promise to be more be involved in our lives than ever before. My advice, sit back and enjoy the ride.
