As a child, The idea of mumbling orders at a computer in darkened room appealed to my little hacker fantasy. Dreams of saying things as vague as "break into the mainframe" or "bypass the firewall" are not only dashed by the knowledge that "mainframe" is really just a cooler sounding word for database but also exasperation with talking to machines. Under what circumstance would it be faster to issue a verbal command rather than pressing a button? or even just typing?
I have never been the most technologically literate individual, though I concede that it is imperative as an interdisciplinarian to engage with the digital humanities while nevertheless remaining critical of the discipline. To understand how I am able to create knowledge by using technology, I must adopt computational thinking. (Berry and Fagerjord) In my work as a content writer, I utilize search engine optimization (SEO) tools such as keywords and meta descriptions to not only effectively answer my targeted audiences' questions but to also provide them with innovative insights that reflect my credibility as an expert in that particular area. I am prioritizing relevance in public culture, and this demonstrates my adherence to algorithmic practices. (Berry and Fagerjord)
With the creativity one has to become an inventor, there is still an enormous amount of patents that never really amount to much in the marketplace. It would be a fair assessment to say that less than 10% of them are meant for future development. This may be even more exaggerated in the near future with tech companies filing more frivolous patents.
While the FCC's recent ruling on Net Neutrality raises many questions and concerns on the landscape of a future Internet, the very spirit of the World Wide Web is guided by the idea that content and information should be widely accessible and available to as many people as possible, and on many device types as possible. This includes making sure content is available to people with disabilities, as well as on non-standard device formats (such as mobile devices). This post will give an overview of the basic principles of Web Accessibility, examples of how you can make your site more accessible, as well as some resources for improving your website conversion rates (CRO)
Since childhood, we have been playing a game of spotting the lies. Mostly we have to spot a lie between the 3 statements or the stories. Out of the 3 stories or statements shared, 2 are true and one is false. In this article, you will find 3 statements out of which 2 will be truths and one will be a lie. You will have to identify which one is a lie and then we will continue exploring the true statements.
Whether it’s big corporations future-proofing their operations or startups looking to seize the opportunity, certain sectors of the tech world will see some heat in 2020. Even taking a look at a typical invention trade show, you will notice a prominence of certain trends within nearly all product types.
Software and technology continue to develop at a rapid pace. It seems as if every industry is being fundamentally changed by technology. From robots in warehouses to cryptocurrency in financial institutions technology and software are changing or eliminating long-held traditions in companies and industries. One area that continues to experience significant change as a result of changes in technology is the industry of technology itself. Developers and the companies they work for appear to be in a race to find, develop and implement the next trend in software. This drive is not only due to the marketability of new technology and the profits that result from that marketability but is also due to the ability to develop software or processes that the company can use internally to improve their own processes, products and services. The ability to improve their own processes has become a significant focus of companies and developers in recent years and is likely to continue into the future as it has proven in the past to lead to quicker turn around time and improved product offerings. Additionally, discovering new processes and technologies for internal use has allowed companies to become the testers of their own products. This is often highly beneficial to companies as it allows them to avoid the costs and difficulties of testing a market for a software or other technology related product. Many times, the most successful and beneficial products are ones that improve a process that is performed every day or is an essential function of a job. These types of products and software can provide significant time saving capabilities, while also increasing the effectiveness of a process.
We’ve finally said our goodbyes to 2019 and welcomed 2020 as the next challenge for all tech enthusiasts.
The new era of technological advancements has brought a lot of changes in the way we live and communicate with our peers. Every day, we see new technologies that bring us closer together and make our lives easier.
While the Internet itself has become better, faster, and more widespread, most people believe that the next truly transformational change will be ushered in by the Internet of Things (IoT), a technological advancement that is slated to embed itself deeply into our lives and raise the standard of man-machine interaction to unprecedented levels. Very soon, using IoT technology, virtually every device we use—TVs, kitchen appliances, security systems, cars, buildings, and virtually everything else—will be able to talk to each other. Even in industry, machinery and tools are becoming increasingly intelligent and well connected. They can generate data to drive hitherto unmatched levels of operational efficiency enabling a new reality for paradigm shifts in preventive maintenance. Experts opine that there will be nothing less than 26 million connected devices globally by the end of 2019. With IoT, the Internet is not something just for connecting computers and smartphones but virtually every intelligent device that we will be using. Some stargazing about the way IoT is headed in the next couple of years:
