Our previous article spoke about the three technologies that people should fear and beware of. However, there is always another side of the coin. In this article, let us delve into technologies that people should be excited about.
By “excited” we mean that they have the capability to affect people’s lives for the better. Without further ado, here are three technologies that you should watch out for and be excited about.
DNA Fortune Telling
As an expecting parent, what if you could know what lay in the future of your child to be? Not everything in the future as if you were Nostradamus. Just what their traits would be like and what diseases they would susceptible.
Now, scientists and doctors are able to look at certain genetics and make out what diseases they would more likely be susceptible to. This is made possible by the thousands upon thousands of DNA genetic studies that have been done.
All these pieces of information allow for scientists to make predictions on these genetics and advise parents at an early stage. When people know what lay in their genetics, they will be able to adjust their lifestyles according to them.
This is a huge step forward in the health sector.
Accurate Molecule Designs
Did you know that after all these years, we still don’t exactly know what a molecule looks like? Of course, we have a rough idea, and for what we use this understanding for, it seems to be enough.
However, there is a need to understand the design of a molecule better.
Let’s start with the problem. Why haven’t we been able to understand, visualize, and design precise molecules? The problem lay in the computers that we use. Currently our computers are storing and processing data with 1’s and 0’s if you will. This is just not enough to map out a molecule.
Enter quantum computers. Instead of binary, quantum computers use qubits. These qubits will be enough to precisely model a molecule.
So why is this important? Well, the precise designing of a molecule can allow chemists to create drugs that will be far more effective than what we have now.
Perfect Online Privacy
Right now, privacy is a big concern.
First of all, social media already takes away the idea of privacy. Then, we also have these companies that squander people’s own privacy for personal gain.
Don’t worry though, scientists are on the case. Currently, scientists are creating a cryptographic tool that allows for people to prove something online without revealing any sensitive pieces of information.
It is called Perfect Online Privacy. This is particularly useful for when you need to disclose something online, but don’t want to expose your identity totally.
