Predicted Science Trends For The Coming Months
Want to know what is going to be hot in science over the next few months? Here are some of the Science Trends that the experts are predicting will take over. Make sure you know all about them in case you can utilize them to your benefit in the workplace!
Artificial intelligence (often referred to as AI) has been a big theme for science fiction movies for quite some time now. Well, it could not be too long before it starts to move into our homes and workspaces. As a matter of fact, artificial intelligence has been used by some companies for quite some time. That’s because the algorithms that Google and Facebook use to decide what posts to show users are sometimes thought of as AI. But 2017 is going to be the year that this branch of science really takes off. Experts are predicting that the first chatbots, such as Amazon’s Echo, could be in the majority of households before the end of the year.
You should also expect to hear about some significant medical breakthroughs this year as well. One of the biggest breakthroughs will take place at the end of the year in December, which is when the very first human head transplant is due to take place. Of course, whether or not this will be a success is still up for debate. But, if it is a success, there is no doubt that this could be one of the biggest medical stories in living history. Not only that, though, but there are some drugs for Alzheimer’s that are about to enter the final trials. If these pass the trials, we could be one step closer to seeing the end of dementia.
If 2016 was the year of the 3D printer, 2017 is certainly going to be the year of injection molding. Injection molding is set to revolutionise how we produce plastics and various packaging in such as way that it could bring down manufacturer’s costs considerably. Many producers and manufacturers are currently enrolling employees in some injection molding training to ensure that they are able to adapt to this new way of crafting by the time it becomes mainstream.
Are you sick of websites saying that your chosen password isn’t cryptic enough? Wish that you knew an easy to remember password that no one else could ever guess? Well, there is one very simple password you could use for that, and that is your body! Over the next few months, you should expect to hear a lot more about using fingerprints and biometrics to identify who we are. It won’t be long before our laptops come with pads for us on which to scan out fingerprints!
As you can see, there are going to be some super exciting science developments over the next few months. And they are going to take life in a very interesting direction indeed. Where do you think all these fab advancements you’ll take you?!
