Big data, Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain

The rise of technology is accelerating, and it’s challenging how we think about everything. It’s a thrilling time to be alive, and yet an unsettling one. With advances in big data, artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies, machines are now capable of replicating tasks that were once exclusively done by humans. Take driving as an example. Nearly 2 million people are employed as professional drivers around the world – but with Tesla’s release of their driverless car feature last year, these jobs may soon be replaced by computers. Other industries may also see a massive shift as artificial intelligence helps machines process information and solve problems faster than humans can ever hope to match. And it goes beyond employment – what will happen when AI becomes better at making financial decisions than investors?

Mobile Technology, Smartphones and Tablets

These devices seem to be pretty ubiquitous. It seems that just about everyone you meet these days is holding their cell phone, texting with both thumbs. New phones are getting smarter and more powerful by the day, but it also seems like they are just as prone to failure as any other electronic device. Smartphones and tablets also give us access to a whole host of news apps which provide up-to-the-minute updates on current events. If you are interested in learning more about technology, or if you want to know about all of the most recent technological advances, then keep reading for some great ideas on how to stay informed and smart about your tech.

Wearables, Fitness, IoT and Connected Objects

Connected objects are a new wave of products that will be able to connect to different devices and allow users to communicate with these devices using apps. In terms of fitness, there are wearable products such as Fitbit, Nike FuelBand, Jawbone UP and others that can track your physical activity throughout each day. With IoT you will be able to see information about your car or other objects through online apps. Apple Watch is a perfect example of wearables and connected objects: they can collect data from many fitness tracking applications on your iPhone and present it all on a small wrist device. As more companies like Apple enter into smart watches or jewelry (Google is also working on Android Wear) an even larger market for wearable technology is expected to grow rapidly in 2015.

Cars, Trucks, Planes, Boats, Trains, Bikes and Scooters

A look at what is trending around transportation. In today’s world, efficient and convenient transportation is a necessity. It is important to focus on safety when operating any type of vehicle or machinery. Follow these tips to ensure you are being safe on your next trip: Go over all parts of your vehicle with a fine-tooth comb before taking off and be sure you know where all parts are. Take note of things that may seem out of place or unfamiliar, as it could be cause for concern later down the road. Before going on long trips it is a good idea to check tire pressure, oil levels and any other fluids that might need maintenance done. Not only will proper maintenance help prevent breakdowns, but it also ensures proper handling and maximum performance while on the road.

Google vs. Apple … again

While Apple (AAPL) vs. Google (GOOG) may sound like a familiar scenario, it’s actually a reboot of sorts for tech giants going toe-to-toe. The rivalry between Apple and Google started before either company was even public. In 2005, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs announced that he would open up iTunes for other music players and Google responded by saying it would not allow its search function to be embedded into any third party sites – clearly aimed at Apple’s then plans to launch its own phone. And, so far, neither company has backed down from their initial stance on these issues or others – but that could change now that both companies are publicly traded and have to consider how their decisions affect investors’ views of them as stocks.
