There are all sort of things to be excited about with respect to the future when it comes to technology and energy. In fact, much of the future is going to revolve around the progress that is made in those two fields. So the better job that people do of connecting the dots now, the easier the eventual transitions are going to be.
So what are some of the ways that you can see these connections in place right now? Check out different variations of industrial support, robotics of the future, self-driving cars, rumors of fusion, and what role artificial intelligence will have in the long run.
The big ideas are great of course. The space ships, the aircraft carriers, the machines that build roads and skyscrapers. But behind all of those big things, and especially the big things that deal with energy (like hydroelectric plants, or nuclear reactors) there are the small things that make it work. There are companies that specialize in industrial support of these huge tasks, and learning about them will help you (and society at large) understand how everything is connected.
Robotics Of the Future
Have you read about robotics lately? There are huge advance in processing and energy management on a micro scale that are allowing the robots of the future to be made today. Hyper-efficient and able to do things faster, better, and stronger, the machines of the future will be able to help humans do their work in a way that wasn’t even imaginable in the past. Reading the latest news will help you stay abreast of this situation.
And can you imagine how much energy will be saved when self-driving cars hit the road? The technology that’s coming into play will mean no more pressing too hard on the gas, then pressing too hard on the brakes. Traffic jams will be preventable by algorithms shared across seas of cars on the road. It will be a wonderful things, brought to you by the engineers in the tech fields.
Rumors of Fusion
Hard-core physicists will tell you that they’re closer than ever to finding a way to make fusion work for the world at large. It still might be a decade away from being efficient, but when that wave hits, it will free the world from a lot of energy constraints.
What Role Artificial Intelligence Will Play
Artificial intelligence will allow a non-judgmental system of processing to figure out how best to use energy in every possible application. Humans, for better or worse, get tired and cranky, or have a predisposition toward certain solutions to energy problems. Artificial intelligence will solve that energy in a flexible manner.
