9 Latest Developments In New Techs.

 9 Latest Developments In New Techs



1. Nvidia’s new RTX 2050 laptop GPU could potentially power more affordable laptops

Unlike other 20 series chips, the RTX 2050 is based on Ampere architecture



Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 2050 laptop GPUs don’t sound “new” at all, considering that the company already released the RTX 3050 and 3050 Ti GPUs for laptops earlier this year (via VideoCardz). But it’s clear that Nvidia isn’t ready to retire its 20 series GPUs just yet — Nvidia says that the RTX 2050 will be available in laptops starting in the spring of 2022.

The RTX 2050 isn’t just a piece of old hardware brought back from the dead. Unlike other 20 series chips, the RTX 2050 is based on Ampere GA107 architecture, not Turing. Ampere is the same architecture that the RTX 3050 (and all other 30 series cards) is powered by, and packaging it within a 20-series card could potentially offer some of the same ray-tracing improvements at a cheaper price. The RTX 2050 comes with the same 2,048 CUDA cores and 4GB of GDDR6 memory that the RTX 3050 has. However, it offers a 64-bit memory bus when compared to the RTX 3050’s 128-bit, potentially leading to a bit of a downgrade in performance.

While it’s possible that Nvidia is releasing a GPU that doesn’t belong to the latest and greatest 30 series due to the ongoing chip shortage, the move may also come as a way to provide a middle ground between the RTX 3050 and the RTX 1650. Nvidia might want a mid-range GPU that offers a boost in performance over the RTX 1650, but is still more affordable when compared to devices that carry the RTX 3050.

In addition to the RTX 2050, Nvidia also announced the entry-level MX550 and MX570 laptop chips, but the company hasn’t provided many details about their specs. Nvidia vaguely mentions “more CUDA Cores” and “faster memory speeds” with no solid numbers to back it up just yet. All this comes about two weeks after Nvidia released a new version of the RTX 2060 —which was originally launched in 2019 — that offers an upgrade of 12GB of video RAM when compared to the 6GB of VRAM that the standard model comes with.


2. Apple Iphone 13 Pro Max





The iPhone 13 is just a few months old, but that doesn't mean it's too soon to start talking about the iPhone 14. The biggest upgrades we're expecting to see from next year's flagship iPhone come down to the camera, design and screen size options. But it's the reported iPhone 13 pro Max that I'm most excited about, which is said to be a super-size version of Apple's standard next-gen iPhone.

Apple will ditch the iPhone Mini and instead add another 6.7-inch iPhone to the mix next year, according to Nikkei Asian Review. That means the iPhone 14 lineup may consist of two 6.1-inch models (the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro), and two 6.7-inch versions (the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max). 

Apple's iPhone 14 Max will seemingly be aimed at those who want a larger screen but don't necessarily care about the other upgrades that come with Apple's Pro line, like a triple-lens camera and Lidar sensor. It could be a great choice for iPhone fans that have been waiting for a gigantic display but don't want to splurge on the $1,099 iPhone 13 Pro Max

There are some other exciting upgrades reportedly in store for the rest of the iPhone 14 lineup that could make it feel like more of a leap than the iPhone 13. The Pro and Pro Max versions of Apple's 2022 iPhone may have a 48-megapixel wide rear camera, reports Kuo in a note reported by 9to5Mac. That's a noticeable jump from the iPhone 13 Pro's 12-megapixel camera system. 

In terms of design, 2022 might be the year Apple says goodbye to one of the iPhone's most polarizing physical traits: the notch. Kuo also notes that the iPhone 14 lineup could have a hole punch cutout for the front camera, but only on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models. That falls in line with a previous report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman which said Apple has been working on a notch-free design for future iPhones.

The iPhone 14 lineup will likely launch in September, as is usually the case with Apple's major smartphone releases. 

3. A new era of computing

By 2025, quantum computing will have outgrown its infancy, and a first generation of commercial devices will be able tackle meaningful, real-world problems. One major application of this new kind of computer will be the simulation of complex chemical reactions, a powerful tool that opens up new avenues in drug development. Quantum chemistry calculations will also aid the design of novel materials with desired properties, for instance better catalysts for the automotive industry that curb emissions and help fight climate change. Right now, the development of pharmaceuticals and performance materials relies massively on trial and error, which means it is an iterative, time-consuming and terribly expensive process. Quantum computers may soon be able to change this. They will significantly shorten product development cycles and reduce the costs for R&D.




4. 5G will enhance the global economy and save lives

Overnight, we’ve experienced a sharp increase in delivery services with a need for “day-of” goods from providers like Amazon and Instacart - but it has been limited. With 5G networks in place, tied directly into autonomous bots, goods would be delivered safely within hours.

Wifi can’t scale to meet higher capacity demands. Sheltering-in-place has moved businesses and classrooms to video conferencing, highlighting poor-quality networks. Low latency 5G networks would resolve this lack of network reliability and even allow for more high-capacity services like telehealth, telesurgery and ER services. Businesses can offset the high cost of mobility with economy-boosting activities including smart factories, real-time monitoring, and content-intensive, real-time edge-compute services. 5G private networks make this possible and changes the mobile services economy.

The roll-out of 5G creates markets that we only imagine - like self-driving bots, along with a mobility-as-a-service economy - and others we can’t imagine, enabling next generations to invent thriving markets and prosperous causes.


5G also offers appealing speeds and reasonable, straightforward pricing for home internet connections

It's no secret that many of us are tired of being tied to internet service providers with cumbersome contracts, insufficient speeds, restrictive terms and rising fees. All too often, though, we have very few options or alternatives

Could 5G be the answer? The technology that's powering our newest phones also wants to tackle our home broadband needs. The earliest 5G home internet plans, available from names like Starry, T-Mobile and Verizon, offer respectable speeds at a straightforward price -- but availability is limited to select cities and regions. Let's dig in and see how it works, how fast it gets, what it costs and where it's available right now.

What is 5G again?

Simply put, 5G stands for fifth generation. Fifth generation of what, you ask? The fifth generation of wireless data networks. You're probably most familiar with hearing 5G used to describe better mobile communications and speedier phones. You're not wrong. 5G networks, which use different radio frequencies than previous generations, aim to provide faster data speeds with much less lag or delay than we had with 4G.

Millimeter-wave technology uses much higher frequencies than previous generations and subsequently provides much faster speeds and connections. But with those higher, gigabit speeds come a price -- the data doesn't travel the same distance as 4G and has trouble with obstructions. To combat that, midband technology, which offers speeds averaging between 300 and 400 megabits per second, increases the coverage area offered by millimeter wave. Finally, low-band 5G offers a range similar to 4G, but with a speed that tops out between 100 and 200Mbps.

Is 5GHz the same thing as 5G home internet?

Nope. One common mistake is to see the "5GHz" setting on your Wi-Fi router and assume you have access to 5G. Wi-Fi routers also use short-range radio frequencies - typically either 2.4 or 5 gigahertz -- to transmit your internet signal to connected devices within your home. So 5GHz is one of the band options for your home's Wi-Fi system, but it's not the same thing as 5G, which is a cellular technology that uses higher-frequency waves.


Cable, fiber and DSL home internet plans require wires that connect your home to the provider's grid. With a fixed wireless service like 5G, your home connects to the provider's network over the air.


How is 5G home internet different from fiber or cable internet?

Most ISPs deliver home internet service via phone lines or cables that connect your home to a larger network. That includes common internet connection types, like digital subscriber line, coaxial cable and fiber-optic internet -- those are all wired connections from your provider to your home.

5G home internet, on the other hand, is a type of fixed wireless internet service, which means that the connection between your provider and your home is a wireless one. With 5G, your provider will need to install an indoor or outdoor 5G receiver at your home to pick up the signal. It's similar to satellite internet, but instead of beaming in a signal from satellites orbiting in the night sky, it's relaying information from a much closer wireless hub. Even though you're using the same 5G network as your mobile phone, your gateway is specific to your location and cannot be used elsewhere.

Latest 5G Phones

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G 

The Galaxy S21 Ultra gets a fresh design and sports a gorgeous black finish.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, unveiled alongside Samsung's Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus phones, proves that sometimes you have to do something twice to get it right. While just as bold as last year's Galaxy S20 Ultra, the S21 Ultra is a refined second take on the concept. There's still the 100x Space Zoom, but it's easier to use. There is still the "big for the sake of being big" design, but it looks more appealing. And there's still a high price, but at $1,200 (£1,149, AU$1,849) it costs $200 less than the S20 Ultra in the US

If you want the absolute best specs and features, the S21 Ultra is undoubtedly appealing. The phone will also attract camera nerds, thanks to the improvements. The addition of S-Pen support -- it's the first Galaxy S phone to support the stylus -- will likely catch the eye of Galaxy Note users looking for a different option.

Last year's Ultra model seemed like it came out of nowhere. It was a phone all about excess that, by sheer fate, was launched at the beginning of a global pandemic and recession. Its bold, behemoth take on the Galaxy S line was undercut by its $1,400 (£1,199, AU$1,999) price and issues with its nearly domino-size camera system.

Overall, the S21 Ultra is a major update both in terms of hardware and software over the S20 Ultra. And when you factor in a lower price, it all kind of makes sense. And that's why the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra earned a popular choice. The whole Galaxy S21 lineup is available to purchase -- here's how you can buy one

5. A New Normal in Managing Cancer

Technology drives data, data catalyzes knowledge, and knowledge enables empowerment. In tomorrow’s world, cancer will be managed like any chronic health condition —we will be able to precisely identify what we may be facing and be empowered to overcome it.

In other words, a new normal will emerge in how we can manage cancer. We will see more early and proactive screening with improved diagnostics innovation, such as in better genome sequencing technology or in liquid biopsy, that promises higher ease of testing, higher accuracy and ideally at an affordable cost. Early detection and intervention in common cancer types will not only save lives but reduce the financial and emotional burden of late discovery.

We will also see a revolution in treatment propelled by technology. Gene editing and immunotherapy that bring fewer side effects will have made greater headway. With advances in early screening and treatment going hand in hand, cancer will no longer be the cursed 'C' word that inspires such fear among people.


6. Robotic Retail

Historically, robotics has turned around many industries, while a few select sectors - such as grocery retail - have remained largely untouched . With the use of a new robotics application called 'microfulfillment', Grocery retailing will no longer look the same. The use of robotics downstream at a 'hyper local' level (as opposed to the traditional upstream application in the supply chain) will disrupt this 100-year-old, $5 trillion industry and all its stakeholders will experience significant change.

Retailers will operate at a higher order of magnitude on productivity, which will in turn result in positive and enticing returns in the online grocery business (unheard of at the moment). This technology also unlocks broader access to food and a better customer proposition to consumers at large: speed, product availability and cost. Microfulfillment centers are located in existing (and typically less productive) real estate at the store level and can operate 5-10% more cheaply than a brick and mortar store. We predict that value will be equally captured by retailers and consumers as online.


7. A new era in medicine

Medicine has always been on a quest to gather more knowledge and understanding of human biology for better clinical decision-making. AI is that new tool that will enable us to extract more insights at an unprecedented level from all the medical 'big data' that has never really been fully taken advantage of in the past. It will shift the world of medicine and how it is practiced.

Can you believe how the accessibility of healthcare information has changed in the past decade? When you visit your Health Doctor, your files are stored in a laptop instead of an overstuffed manila folder. Lab results are available online with your username and password. You now get a text or email to remind you of an upcoming appointment. Electronic records, patient portals and the ability to schedule and change appointments online have taken medicine into the virtual world.

There are many specific advantages of improved technology in healthcare, but here are three distinct categorical benefits:

Better and More Accessible Treatment

Improved technology means more accessibility of treatment and personal choice. You can research eye care professionals in your area and select your doctor based on your specific criteria. Your ability to explore options makes healthcare more driven and effective, and medical professionals are held to even higher standards of excellence.

Improved Care and Efficiency

Patient care is more reliable when using patient portals. Medical professionals are now using hand-held computers to record real-time patient data and updating medical history. Having one central location to record vital signs and enter lab results is more efficient for both doctors and patients.

Usable Data Helps Control Disease

Data collection is much more efficient and accessible for scientists who are studying medical trends and disease. Medical breakthroughs can happen much more rapidly with vast online resources that exist today

Talk to your Health care professional at your next Visit and find out how you can use technology to be a more active participant in your own healthcare. You may find that you enjoy the ease, convenience and efficiency of medicine in the digital age.

8. The Future of Construction Has Already Begun

The amount of disruption that construction faced in 2020 was staggering. Amid the lockdowns, delays and restrictions caused by COVID-19, construction stakeholders demonstrated their resilience by adapting to the challenges and changing standards. When considering these obstacles, it is impressive what construction workers accomplished and the speed at which adjustments were made in the face of struggle. In 2021, many will build on lessons learned, potentially in these 3 ways. 


1. EXPANDING DIGITAL TWIN ADOPTION

Digital twins inform the preconstruction and design process to prevent costly rework and mistakes. While extremely useful, the technology was underutilized over the past decade. In 2016, the technology had little market share, holding a small 20%. In 2018 this percentage grew to 57%. 

In spite of construction starts falling, digital twin adoption continued this trend of growth as remote capabilities were no longer a “nice to have” but an essential component to preconstruction strategies. Data from Juniper Research projects that the overall market will grow by 17% in 2021. Many unfamiliar with digital twins will continue to realize its value, and as COVID-19 continues to loom over the industry, digital twin adoption will likely increase.

2. DIGITAL CONSTRUCTION GROWS

COVID-19 forced an industry-wide digital transformation. Like the digital twin market growth, digital construction practices including CAD, BIM and VDC received an increase in interest due to the global pandemic. In a recent forecast from ResearchAndMarkets.com, this will grow the industry’s value to 8.8 billion by 2025.

Further analysis suggests that the growth of digital construction could pull the industry out of its four-year economic slump plagued by rising costs and labor scarcity. JLL found similar potential in BIM and CAD, arguing that the pandemic caused a boost in usage, could cement the technology as a foundational component to the industry, and spark economic growth. 

In addition to the remote benefits, BIM offers contractors with a way to coordinate the entire construction lifecycle. Clashes are detected and eliminated before occurring in the field, removing the obstacle of project delays and unforeseen costs. The pandemic caused digital transformation sparked growth in this sector that will likely continue in 2021 and beyond. 

3. CONSTRUCTION INVESTIGATES AR AND VR MORE SERIOUSLY

The pandemic’s constraints and the necessity of remote capabilities have also driven interest in AR and VR technology. Using interactive experiences, construction professionals can examine trade designs and coordinate changes without visiting the site. 

While there is a lot of potential, widespread adoption will likely take time. A survey by GlobalData found stakeholders are concerned by the technology’s cost, equipment and connectivity. As sites evolve to become connected IoT ecosystems, and the free market drives headset pricing down, construction will likely consider the technology more seriously in 2021, but large-scale use will take more time.


9.blockchain


What is Blockchain?

Blockchain can be defined as a chain of blocks that contains information. The technique is intended to timestamp digital documents so that it’s not possible to backdate them or temper them. The purpose of blockchain is to solve the double records problem without the need for a central server.


The blockchain is used for the secure transfer of items like money, property, contracts, etc, without requiring a third-party intermediary like a bank or government. Once data is recorded inside a blockchain, it is very difficult to change it.


The blockchain is a software protocol (like SMTP is for email). However, Blockchains could not be run without the Internet. It is also called meta-technology as it affects other technologies. It is comprised of several pieces: a database, software application, some connected computers, etc.


Sometimes the term is used for Bitcoin Blockchain or The Ethereum Blockchain and sometimes, it’s other virtual currencies or digital tokens. However, most of them are talking about distributed ledgers.


What is Cryptocurrency?

A cryptocurrency is one medium of exchange like traditional currencies such as USD, but it is designed to exchange the digital information through a process made possible by certain principles of cryptography. A cryptocurrency is a digital currency and is classified as a subset of alternative currencies and virtual currencies.


Cryptocurrency is a bearer instrument based on digital cryptography. In this kind of cryptocurrency, the holder has of the currency has ownership. No other record kept as to the identity of the owner. In the year 1998, Wei Dai published “B-Money,” an anonymous, distributed electronical cash system.


What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin was launched in 2009 by an unknown person called Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin is a Peer-to-Peer technology which is not governed by any central authority or banks. Currently, issuing Bitcoins and managing transactions are carried out collectively in the network. It is presently the dominant cryptocurrency of the world. It is open source and designed for the general public means nobody owns the control of the Bitcoin. In fact, there are only 21 million Bitcoins issued. Currently, Bitcoin has a market cap of $12 billion.


Anyone can use bitcoin without paying any process fees. If you are handling Bitcoin, the sender and receiver transact directly without using a third party.


BlockChain and Bitcoin

he blockchain is the technology behind Bitcoin. Bitcoin is the digital token, and blockchain is the ledger that keeps track of who owns the digital tokens. You can’t have Bitcoin without blockchain, but you can have blockchain without Bitcoin.


Other prominent cryptocurrencies


  • Ethereum (ETH)
  • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
  • Ripple
  • Litecoin (LTC)
  • Cordano (ADA)
  • Polkadot (DOT)
  • Stellar (XLM)
  • Dogecoin (DOGE)
  • Binance Coin (BNB)
  • Tether (USDT)
  • Monero (XMR)

  • Need to waste electricity                         -Emerging blockchains are efficient
  • It is inherently unsalable                         -Emerging blockchains are scalable                                                   

Limitations of Blockchain technology

Now in this beginners Blockchain tutorial, we will learn about limitations of Blockchain technology:


Higher costs: Nodes seek higher rewards for completing Transactions in a business which work on the principle of Supply and Demand


Slower transactions: Nodes prioritize transactions with higher rewards, backlogs of transactions build up.


Smaller ledger: It not possible to a full copy of the Blockchain, potentially which can affect immutability, consensus, etc.


Transaction costs, network speed: The transactions cost of Bitcoin is quite high after being touted as ‘nearly free’ for the first few years.


Risk of error: There is always a risk of error, as long as the human factor is involved. In case a blockchain serves as a database, all the incoming data has to be of high quality. However, human involvement can quickly resolve the error.


Wasteful: Every node that runs the blockchain has to maintain consensus across the blockchain. This offers very low downtime and makes data stored on the blockchain forever unchangeable. However, all this is wasteful, because each node repeats a task to reach consensus.
