Technology is constantly adapting, and it is constantly improving. Here is a list of several emerging technologies that are going to change the world:
1: INJECTABLE TISSUE ENGINEERING
An engineer at Johns Hopkins University, Jennifer Elisseeff, is trying to change the need for joint replacement surgery. She and her team are working on injectable tissue engineering. This would replace the need for surgery if someone needed a joint replacement.
2: NANO SOLAR CELLS
Paul Alivisatos, who is a chemist at the University of California, has an idea that would use nanotechnology. This technology would produce a material that could reduce the cost of solar energy. Not only this but the material could also be used in buildings.
Mechatronics is aimed at improving everything about an automobile. This would include the performance, the fuel economy, and many other factors. This would integrate new electrical components and software into vehicles.
4: GRID COMPUTING
The idea of grid computing is to link practically all types of data. Data such as databases, visualization tools, simulation, etc. Ian Foster and Carl Kesselman, from the University of Southern California, are the one’s who pioneered this idea.
5: SOFTWARE ASSURANCE
This is one of my favorite new technologies that will soon take over the world. Nancy Lynch and Stephen Garland are trying to develop tools that would prevent software from crashing. This is almost impossible, but error-free software would be amazing!
James Paulson is currently leading a development, named glycomics, that would turn sugar into a drug. This is being done so it can help minimize the damage of those who experience heart attacks and surgery.
7: QUANTUM CRYPTOGRAPHY
The need to worry about hackers may soon be over! Nicolas Gisin, from the University of Geneva, is currently working on a tool that would detect whenever someone is trying to eavesdrop.
