12 Technological Advances That Will Revolutionize This 2020

The new scientific discoveries contribute to the development of new technologies, all for the benefit of humanity. Do you want to know what are the latest advances that will cause a revolution this year? Know the list below:

Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence, a set of algorithms, software and sensors, will be of great importance in different market sectors.

In the retail sector, this technological advancement can provide data on purchasing patterns, effects of product promotions, perform sales simulations and define sales results under pricing, advertising, location strategies, among others.

In the digital sector, Adobe works with artificial intelligence to identify manipulated images, such as the use of RGB sequences or a noise filter that is able to analyze the trail left by the user in an image. This latest technological advance is still under development and may increase trust and authenticity in digital media.

In the financial sector, artificial intelligence will be able to detect abnormal behaviors in the manipulation of information within banks in a timely manner and prevent cyber attacks.

And at home this technological breakthrough will be revolutionary. The LG company developed robots such as the CLOi that works by voice command to help with household chores, be it shopping, or moving objects, you can even play Scrabble with an opponent thanks to an intelligent vision system.

The car of the future

The alliance between large technology companies and automotive companies to develop smart vehicles has paid off. Byton, integrated by former executives of Tesla, Google, Apple and BMW, designed an electric model that will be on sale in 2020 and its value is $ 45,000.

This vehicle is an SUV that has a 49-inch screen and a 10-inch screen on the steering wheel. It has a range of use of more than 298 miles and can be recharged by 80% in half an hour.

Electronic sticker

This technological advance applied to health helps prevent dermatological diseases. It is a 2 x 9 mm electronic sticker from La Roche - Posay that is applied to the skin to measure UV rays. It can be applied on a nail, arm or any part of the body that is exposed to the sun. You can review the information for your personal care through an application on iOS andAndroid.

3D metal printing

It is a technological invention that allows to obtain stronger, lighter and more complex metal parts at a reasonable price and faster. If this technological advance is widely replicated, it would completely change the manufacturing processes in series. Companies like Desktop Metal and Markforged already sell their 3D printer prototypes.

Artificial embryos

Is it possible to create life? This is what researchers at the University of Cambridge try to do. They managed to develop structures similar to those of an embryo without needing ovules or sperm, only stem cells.

Sensitive cities

This high-tech project by Alphabet (Google) will make an area of ​​Toronto (Canada) rebuilt from scratch, making all design, policy and technology decisions based on data from a large sensor network, able to collect air quality information even with the activities of users in the area.

Combative neural networks

Can you imagine an artificial intelligence capable of creating and not just identifying?

This could happen sooner than we think. Specialists work on a concept called generating antagonistic networks. It consists of delivering the same data to two neural networks (mathematical models that try to emulate the brain) so that they both face, learn and cooperate to create variations of data or images. In this way, they would be creating something totally new.

Immediate translation

Language would no longer be a barrier to the world. Travis, is a device similar to a remote control that connected to the Internet can translate up to 80 languages ​​and 20 offline. But he is not the only one, there is also Pilot, of the Waverly Labs company. This technological advance brings people closer regardless of their language.

Contaminant free energy

A planet free of environmental pollution could come true with the initiative proposed by Net Power. This company can recycle CO2 by subjecting it to high pressure and temperature in a power plant to help generate more electricity. This means zero CO2 emissions.

Privacy protection

Not many trust online money transactions as there could be a leak of personal information. To avoid this, specialists are working on a security protocol called a zero knowledge test. This system uses ‘blockchain’ technology, chain programming used in cryptocurrencies that allows anonymous transactions, which cannot be tracked.

Genetic predictions

Thanks to the latest technological advances it has been possible to identify what risk people have to develop certain diseases such as cancer or Alzheimer's. In fact, a new genetic editing technique was discovered last year with which it is possible to correct diseases in human cells. Researchers have used their gene editor, called Repair, to correct mutations that cause anemia and a type of diabetes in human cells.

Quantum material jump

Recently, IBM researchers managed to reproduce the electronic structure of a small molecule with a seven-cubic quantum computer. What is this for? In the future this may help develop more effective drugs and better materials to generate and distribute energy, such as batteries or solar panels.
