Imagine that a person's brain could be scanned in great detail and recreated in a computer simulation. The person's mind and memories, emotions and personality would be duplicated. In effect, a new and equally valid version of that person would now exist, in a potentially immortal, digital form. This futuristic possibility is called mind uploading. The science of the brain and of consciousness increasingly suggests that mind uploading is possible – there are no laws of physics to prevent it.

This 2019 Radiation activist are warning that the New 5G networks are a'massive health experiment' and a'Global catastrophe' waiting to happen. The New 5G Network in the foreground of controversy, promises lightning-fast speeds and the ability to power new technologies like self-driving cars and advanced augmented and virtual reality experiences. But an undercurrent to all of the things we can do with 5G is concern about what 5G can do to us. There are concerns that the very high-frequency spectrum known as millimeter wavelengths used in early deployments to make 5G a reality could pose adverse health effects for the public. A leading activist on the issue of electromagnetic radiation and its negative impacts on public health has described the rollout of 5G as a "massive health experiment" which could "become a global catastrophe."
The term "Industry 4.0" refers to the transformation of the manufacturing sector by digital technologies, such as the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, robotics, 3-D printing, visualization, virtual/augmented reality and analytics. Automated management of assembly lines, inventories and even downtime for preventive maintenance has improved flexibility, throughput and productivity. The use of robotics in complex processes has helped enhance reliability and quality while reducing occupational risks. This transformation has thus far largely been limited to shop floors. Yet, there are three pillars that support the business of manufacturing companies: sales, production and service.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has not been getting preference for the consumer market since it directly does not touch personal lives. Virtual reality (VR) on other hand is getting mass attention. But one can expect AI to come out to the mainstream as many companies are leveraging their version of artificial intelligence (AI) soon. Many people are already using AI routinely. Crystal, an AI application attempts to teach users about crafting emails based on recipient's likes and dislikes.
A KPMG report has said that 5G technology has the potential to add 0.35-0.5 per cent to India's gross domestic product (GDP) by 2025. The report further said that India Inc has the potential to unlock $48.69 billion (Rs 3,408 billion) in four years through the deployment of 5G. The government has set a target of becoming a $5 trillion economy by 2024-25. In 2018-19, the Indian economy stood at $2.72 trillion. "We estimate that the 5G contribution to annual GDP will likely be in the range of 0.35-0.5 per cent by 2025. The absolute value unlocked is expected to be highest in the retail sector, followed by finance and then the technology sector," said the report released at the India Mobile Congress 2019.
Written by Dr. Kirk Borne In the world of digital transformation, there is no lack of "hot topics" to discuss. Emerging technologies are truly emerging everywhere. What is most exciting -- and what demonstrates their greatest promise -- is that these new technologies are converging. Among the hottest technologies that have been (or soon will be) converging are Big Data, Machine Learning (ML), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), drones, Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), immersive mixed reality environments, digital twins, Blockchain, and (soon) 5G (fifth-generation cellular wireless technology). We will focus here on only a few of those.
Editor's Note: In today's fast-paced news cycle, we know it's difficult to keep up with the latest and greatest HR trends and stories. To make sure you're updated, we're recapping the most popular trends, events and conversations every month in our "In Case You Missed It" series. Each year, the HR Tech Conference gathers HR experts and professionals to discuss how companies can use technology to drive more successful programs and improve the talent experience. At this year's conference, speakers placed more focus on artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analytics, and how these emerging technologies can optimize HR, recruiting and diversity programs. The conference also touched upon more recent trends like virtual reality and revealed how this technology can be used to train and engage today's workforce.
Intelligent vision systems for viewing and artificial intelligence (AI) can be implemented using the low power 0.3Mpixel image sensor announced by ON Semiconductor. The ARX3A0 digital image sensor has 0.3Mpixel resolution in a 1:1 aspect ratio. It can perform like a global shutter in many conditions, with up to 360 frames per second (fps) capture rate, yet with the size, performance and response levels that relate to being a back-side illuminated (BSI) rolling shutter sensor, explains ON Semiconductor. It has a small size, square format and high frame rate, making it particularly suitable for emerging machine vision, AI and augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) applications, as well as small supplemental security cameras. To meet the demands of applications that provide still or streaming images, the ARX3A0 is designed to deliver flexible, high-performance image capture with minimal power.
There are a lot of on-going controversies on the impact of Artificial Intelligence on designing and development. While, designing is a bit of a complex process; as the humans only have the capability to set the context and create what the user's really are looking for. But researchers and designers are constantly working on the technology in an attempt to find out how AI will affect the future of designing industry. Futurists consider AI is capable of critical thinking and performing highly productive and complex jobs in the industry. AI will help in making designing much more manageable and help achieve higher and better outputs.
