New Start-Up Tech You Should Know About
Every brand is a digital company now, which is exactly why you should stop thinking of them all the same way.
From 3D printing to virtual reality, all companies are adapting to new technology.
Why shouldn’t you?
2016 has been the year of 3D revelations. With the dwindling perfection of virtual reality and 3D printing alike, their applications will and have continued to revolutionize markets all across the globe.
A. Artificial Intelligence:
In the latest attempt to fulfill sci-fi movie fantasies, tech firms have been lining up to provide you with a virtual assistant. From well-known voice-powered AIs such as Apple’s Siri to upstarts like Viv or Alexa by Amazon, the goal is to quicken the actions you already take on your phone and other devices, growing ever-more efficient at the job by learning from your behavior. But like any hired help, each of these AI assistants has different skills, blind spots, and quirks.
B. Financial Tech:
also known as FinTech, is an economic industry composed of companies that use technology to make financial services more efficient. Financial technology companies are generally startups trying to disintermediate current financial systems and challenge traditional corporations that are less reliant on software. The innovations we’re seeing aren’t necessarily in the creation of new tools like the smartphone, but the creation of powerful new uses and applications for these tools.
C. Virtual Reality:
Using 3D and virtual reality environments as part of your training methodology allows your workforce to experience an entirely new side of training. Use e-learning to impart the theoretical understanding and knowledge then virtual reality scenarios to test the information learned in a life-like situation to give your users the complete package. The virtual reality enables you to view the competency of your learners, see the decisions they make and how they then react to the consequences.
D. 3D Printing:
PROTOTYPING! 3D printing process allows the creation of parts and/or tools through additive manufacturing at rates much lower than traditional machining.
These trends can help you in the long run when you have too many people to train, equipment is scarce or expensive.
