Impact of emerging technologies
New technologies list can change constantly since they are developed at a remarkable rate.
Readers/User need to search on the internet every six months to stay up to date.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) biometrics
Many fingerprint identification system falsely reject a person
s fingerprint, because it doesn
t found any matches on the database.
It uses dynamic profiling, a system that learns by using AI about a person`s fingerprints on every scan.
-It learns from different alignments, making it able to match fingerprints to those stored on a database.
Computerized facial recognition systems can t recognize changes in human`s faces, for example, if the person has grown facial hear, has aged, etc.
-Newer systems use AI, that learns from a number of faces and pick out the soft biometric features.
-The system can still recognize faces and relate the new attributes with the correct image stored on the database.
More IA biometric technologies are being developed in order to make security systems more reliable
Low-vision enhacement systems (LVES)
Uses video technology through a headset connected to a computer.
Images are projected inside the headset in front of the user eyes.
Makes the examinations of images (by the user) much easier because it brings the objects closer.
Night vision enhancement (NVE)
Amplifies infrared and visible light so the image can still be seen in the dark.
Dim light source is captured and passed through an image intensifier tube, which converts light into electrons.
The electron pass through another tube, there electrons are amplified, making several times the number of electrons.
A screen at the end is coated in phosphor dots that glow when electrons collide with them.
Result: An image that is clearer than the original
Robotics has been used along the years, mostly in the manufacturing industry
No human intervention is required
Examples of areas where robotics are evolving rapidly:
They are flying devices, that can make different functions depending for what they are needed.
Ex. The army could use it for reconnaissance missions, while civilians could use it for surveying landscape in 3-D, investigating whether phenomena, etc.
Robotic surgery allows surgeons to make difficult procedures with more precision, flexibility and control.
Robotics are equipped with a camera arm and several interactive mechanical arms, that works as a human wrist since it have joints that work act to them.
There are many cryptography methods, but all have a limited life as computers become faster at number crunching (calculation of numbers)
Making easier for hackers to decipher encrypted messages
It use photons (light) and their physical quantum properties to make a virtual unbreakable cryptography system.
It protects data being transmitted over fiber-optic cables
Photons move in many directions and produce a sequence of random bits (0s and 1s) across the optical network.
It is based on how current cryptography method works
Computer-assisted translation (CAT)
Online language translators have a very limited use, many word and phrases have double meaning, that the many translator can`t detect.
Is a language translator that uses specific software to help in the translation process.
-terminology databases (linguistic databases that learn from translations being carried out)
-translations memories (automatically insert translations for specific words, phrases or sentences.
CAT software needs the user to correct the errors from the translation process.
It is not perfect, but is considerably better than any online translator
3D and holographic imaging
Holography allows 3D images to be produced.
-a source of laser light
-interference of light
-light intensity recording
A hologram is produced when two light beams meet on the photographic plate
First, split a laser beam. Half of the light (object beam) is reflected off the object on to a photographic plate, while the other half (reference beam) is reflected off a mirror and on to the same plate.
-engineering design (CAD)
-architecture (can rotate design through 360º)
-medical imaging (see inside organs in 3D, etc.)
-holographic televisions (full 3D experience, without special glasses)
-holographic computer memories (optical storage-can hold up 1 TB of data)
-optical computers (will operate much faster that actual technology computer)
Is an artificial environment created by a software
In order to feel “being there” the user makes use of data goggles, sensors suits, data gloves and helmets
Areas where Virtual Reality is used:
ex. the students are in a special biome in the class of geography
ex. as a diagnostic tool
ex. many games use VR in order to make it more realistic
ex. to practice or check the parade
ex. showing monuments
ex. training courses
ex. seeing how his design will look
ex. to improve in some area the athlete could practice in VR
ex. special effect in films
ex. looking at molecular structures in chemistry
