AI is going to be a disruptive technology that will change the face of virtually infinite industries and services. In the last few years, scientists have made breakthroughs in “machine learning” using neural networks, this is a type of “deep learning” allows machines to process information for themselves on a very sophisticated level.
GITEX is also keen on giving its two cents on AI. With many conferences and discussion panels specially dedicated to AI, GITEX is driving this year’s theme with AI having one of the largest pieces of the pie.
The most established and naturally immersive experience of this technology comes from Virtual Reality (VR) integration. The user needs to wear a special headgear, which gives you a feel similar to a personal movie theatre in which you can watch videos and play VR integrated games. Moving a step ahead, comes Augmented Reality (AR); this technology uses real-world environments and adds digital objects into them, which can be viewed from your mobile devices.
Next comes, Mixed Reality (MR), just as the name suggests this technology is a mixture of AR and VR. Many people confuse MR with AR but there is a very large and amazing difference between the two. For instance, if AR can show you an artificial jumping dog (let’s call the dog “Oreo”) then Oreo can only stand on table tops and on the floor where we can see its entire body. Whereas in Mixed Reality (MR), Oreo can interact with objects of the real world in a more advanced way like hiding behind the sofa, or peeking from beneath your work table. In other words, the image or object can be seen in partial sections because the digital objects (in this case “Oreo”) are more aware of what exists in the real world, hence able to represent true mixed reality.
GITEX Dubai 2018 will witness a very high rise in apps that are built using AR, VR, and MR. This app craze began with Pokémon Go in 2016 and it’s still going strong, but besides gaming apps, this technology is a great help in educational apps from kindergarten to college, even medical students can study human anatomy with just a smartphone, without a live model or any other set up. This technology will make education remote and portable so that it can reach every child in the world.
Blockchain could be the strongest weapon against corruption. With an uncompromisable ledger, blockchain can be used to improve government efficiency, preventing voter frauds by creating an unhackable electronic vote-counting system. It would work in the same way as it works as a public ledger for cryptocurrencies.
The 38th GITEX Technology Week wants its visitors to “Experience Future Urbanism”. So it’s obvious that the future is incomplete without discovering the infinite possibilities of blockchain. There are going to be conferences and sessions especially to discuss the usability of blockchain in various industries.
IoT for Smart homes and Offices
It all seems like a dream but absolutely possible. All of this is possible because of IoT (Internet of Things). These gadgets are still to become conventional, but it won’t take long. After GITEX Technology week 2018, these smart home and office trends will become a coveted luxury for the majority of people. You can observe your home from anywhere with security systems that can be connected to your phones through an app. The same goes for offices, with voice-enabled IoT devices like Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and Apple HomePod; the future assistants are more efficient than ever. You can set up meetings, ask for company stats, place reminders, buy office supplies, and do many other things just with a single voice command.
