In the era of computer systems, time and performance is very important. To achieve that, computer scientists works hard to make CPUs better and faster. Most of the modern CPUs in present devices around the world make use of a performance feature called speculative execution. Speculative execution improves the performance of the CPU. It does that by guessing future tasks and executing the instruction. In normal cases, the task comes from the memory and it is executed by CPU, and results are stored in the storage. For better performance using speculative execution, the task is guessed by CPU and executed. When the task comes from memory, the CPU makes sure the correctness of its initial guess. If the guess was incorrect, the CPU reverts speculative execution. If the guess was correct, a significant performance gain is achieved.
Virtual reality is a truly revolutionizing concept, but who wants to be cooped up in a bulky and uncomfortable headpiece that tends to boast relatively sub-par graphics? Well, some of us do of course. It’s one of many unfortunate symptoms in consistent unveiling of new and more modern technologies, almost at an alarming rate. Similarly, as the world plunges headfirst into smartphone screens everywhere, the search for tailored and customizable application experiences has ignited a newfound inquiry into the functionality of augmented reality in marketing and advertising. Hold on there just a second, you say; what is augmented reality? Differentiated by the digitally constructed real world escapes in virtual reality, AR apps instead bring that same digital world straight to your fingertips. Similarly, augmented reality in marketing and advertising essentially intends to achieve this very same feat, yet with real world financial markets and consumer products.
In the 2010s, we have seen serious evolution when it comes to technology—both good and bad.
Hacking has become one of the biggest issues in commerce—and if you count what happened in the 2016 election, politics as well. Hackers have repeatedly been the cause of millions, if not billions, of dollars in loss year after year.
It's the new cable: more channels and no monthly bill! The next step in televised entertainment, much like how music has been revolutionized with streaming, comes a whole new way of watching movies and TV on your mobile device. While not every streaming service is free, nor does every app boast a massive list of titles to choose from, there's still no shortage of possibilities or content when it comes to the digital broadband network. While television sets themselves may not be gone for a long while, how we actually view those sets, thanks to smart applications, widgets, and the like, has slowly moved into a time that disallows for cable and harkens on the objectivity of watching whatever you want, whenever you want.
Sleep is crucial to a person's health. Studies have shown that you will die faster (and more painfully) if you're deprived of sleep than if you're deprived of food. Heck, even having a bad night's sleep can make it hard to function the next day.
About a decade ago, I guarantee there were teams and teams of scientists and engineers alike who were effectively brainstorming the very world of tech we all share today. And, while the likes of virtual reality technologies become enhanced each and everyday, in addition to the profuse updates being preformed on the smart home concept, wireless communications, and even space flight, it's safe to say that another ten years down the road will only be the more frightening if the themes from Black Mirror have to say anything about it. Of course, a fictional television series reminiscent of the Twilight Zone shouldn't be effecting how I see the future of technology, but I have to say it's truly daunting when you stop to think about it. These all new brands, products, and inventions are being unveiled over at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2018, but the question still stands: Are these sleek, modern tech toys paving the way for our future, or holistically curtailing it by limiting the possibilities of further technological advancement going into the future?
We've seen some truly memorable superheroes over the past few years, what with the Dark Knight series, which started with Batman Begins, the X-Men series, and who could forget the now astoundingly huge Marvel Cinematic Universe, boasting such heroes as Iron Man, Captain America, and now even Doctor Strange. Whether adapted from the comic books of old, or rejuvenated for a new on-screen image, we've witnessed some amazing powers over the years, but what about the trinkets?
While some people may want you to cool it with your iPhone addiction, there's much and more in store for the device's future. Augmented reality, most commonly referred to as simply AR, has paved the way for the future of how we look into our phones, and thence see reality in various new and engaging forms. It's not just used for gaming; AR has now been conformed to the areas of house designing, weather tracking, fitness, and much more. If you thought utilizing AR on any iOS device couldn't get better, well I've got some news for you. Thanks to Apple's introduction of the ARKit, more and more augmented reality apps have sprouted into existence and are creating greater AR experiences for stimulation, production, engineering, and performance unlike anything you've ever seen.
