How will Artificial Intelligence Change the Evolution of Technology?

How will Artificial Intelligence Change the Evolution of Technology?

Artificial Intelligence and robotics have become the overnight sensations every company wants to lay their hands. With decades of building and scores of changes within their implementation, the two have almost come to be used interchangeably. As the application of Artificial Intelligence takes precedence over manual intervention, technology has become the thing of the future.

With repetitive tasks no longer seeing the light of day, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics are giving way to adaptive technology and intelligent applications. As Artificial Intelligence takes over the usual mundane chores, it will soon surpass human knowledge and make decisions we were never capable. In the coming years, this will result in paradigm shifts, which will only translate into better success rates for companies making use of these smart, evolving technologies.

With this said and done, it is difficult to overlook the fact that Microsoft and Oracle have already progressed on the path of smarter robotics, which has led to the development of cognitive, connected factories. At the same time, Artificial Intelligence-infused robots will aim at transforming industries with their innovative level of intelligence; this will further lead to enhanced areas of production in the fields of safety, service, transportation, and even habitation.

Artificial Intelligence and robotics have come a long way, and they are the promise towards ushering in a better tomorrow. Broadly speaking, these are technologies which work well within the domains of law enforcement, rescue operations, and many other fields. Slowly and steadily, these technologies will become an integral part of our lives, and become inseparable from our day to day jobs. What is yet to be seen is how these technologies can reduce the interdependency between humans and machines, and recreate the evolution for a better tomorrow.

The Growth Spurts Within the Artificial Intelligence Industry

The next four years will see a massive shift in the growth of Artificial Intelligence and robotics. Artificial Intelligence revenues are expected to grow by 20%, in 5 years (2015-2020). In the year 2015, the Artificial Intelligence industry was staggering at a revenue model of $5 billion. However, by 2020, this industry is likely to operate at a revenue model of $12.5 billion.

With the evolution of the Artificial Intelligence industry, software companies are rapidly taking up the evolution mantle and charging ahead at full throttle. This way, they can push the boundaries of automation and enhance the realms of social media. As the Artificial Intelligence industry continues to push forward, very soon Artificial Intelligence will begin powering automation in the automotive sector, thereby creating scores of jobs in business operations.

As an example, virtual assistants and chat-bots have already become widespread. Smart robots are slowly and steadily taking over the advice columns in the fields of finance, insurance, media, legal, and journalism; this has lead to a revolutionary change in the way information is processed and passed on, thereby plugging multiple gaps within the information processing cycles. Some other benefits within the Artificial Intelligence industry include, but are not limited to, progressing standalone R&D projects, reducing time to market products and services, optimizing supply chain networks, etc. While these are an ongoing series of services, they are going to be enhanced manifold in the many years to come.

Are We Going to be Replaced by Machines?

Hollywood movies have already projected the future of the human race in many films. With the launch of Artificial Intelligence and robotics, there is an excellent chance that all manual jobs will eventually be handled by robots and automation, which will lead to a massive shift in the unemployment cycle. Despite the fear of losing jobs, it is necessary to note that Artificial Intelligence will be aimed at reducing tasks, and not jobs.

At the same time, the fear of replacement is justified. Simply stated, technological unemployment and displacement is a result of technological progress. As companies begin to see the benefits of Artificial Intelligence and robotics within their growing operations, these technologies are rapidly becoming popular in the market. All unrest is put to ease when one concentrates on the fact that Artificial Intelligence as a technology is being used in niche industries, as development within this domain is yet to be funded and finalized. Despite the ongoing concerns, it’s important to note that everything is not black and white, and the grey areas are what needs to be seen as time progresses.

Cloud Computing: Propagating Environmental Friendly Infrastructure

Cloud Computing: Propagating Environmental Friendly Infrastructure
The rapid industrial expansion has put natural resources at risk to the level that environmental sustainability has become one of the primary concerns of companies and governments. As the entire world is also well aware of their contribution to the environmental degradation, people have started to take measures in whichever circle possible to tackle natural resource crisis. Most of their efforts include a focused reduction of carbon footprints. By going green, people are realizing that contribution of each person is necessary to overcome such a situation. From reducing paper use to efficient electricity consumption, people have found ways for significant contribution. Cloud Computing is also one such platform that provides both the firm and their consumers to follow the same path. Environmental Benefits of Cloud Computing include:

Energy Efficient
At surface it may seem that cloud server consumes a lot of electricity due to its distributed servers, however, the reality is not so. The likes of Hybrid Cloud, Integrated cloud and so on have redefined the efficiency measures in cloud computing. They use a flexible cloud stretch that takes the space according to the need of the storage. In this way, no server sits idle consuming electricity. The amount of energy needed is exactly equal to the amount of energy used. This contributes to not just saving the energy but also cuts down on business expenditure. It requires fewer machines and makes optimum use of those in executing the tasks. The cloud space does not sit idle and this results in a better allocation of resources, contributing thereby to environmental wellbeing.

Infrastructural Advancement
The deployment of energy efficient systems that use minimized resourced has a twofold advantage. Beside reducing electric consumption, the cloud system takes shape of a well-organized infrastructure. Public cloud data centers are usually established in close vicinity to the facilities which results in prevention of loss of energy during heavy data transmission. They use less wattage for smooth run of their data centers and are designed at scale and built for efficiency across infrastructure to achieve optimal utilization.

Reduction in Climate Impact
There are several other ways in which firms impact the climate. Apart from deforestation, industrialization has also led to an increased emission of carbonic particles. The climate impact is greatly reduced by the cloud deployment as a result of fewer carbon emissions. Even AWS holds that the average corporate data center has a dirtier power mix than the typical large scale cloud provider. AWS and its partnered cloud providers use 28% lesser carbon-intense power mix. For that, these cloud providers use perfect temperature for their cloud servers that lets systems run at peak performance level without further expanses. The cloud infrastructure eliminates the wasteful spending of energy because of the use of energy efficient equipment and fewer carbon emissions.

The Paperless Option for Businesses
Going paperless is one of the highly praised steps in conserving the environment. It helps in minimizing the deforestation at a significant level. Firms usually keep forms and files that contain company data. Cloud computing allows the company to deal in electronic data. Moving the data to cloud is like making the data available at a centralized location which can be accessed by the authorized personnels. By eliminating the need of paper material, cloud computing enables the firms to invest in on going environmental contribution.

According to the Guardian, companies can cut their carbon emission to half by switching their data to cloud servers. With such a massive potential for sustainability and propagation of environmental resources, cloud computing is definitely a thumbs up.

Cloud computing has played a vital role in securing and strengthening the environmental ecosystem. When embarking to cloud, numerous quantifiable benefits follow. The instances of energy reduction, increased efficiency and computing capabilities, going paper-less and so on, all closely denote these benefits.

The green and eco-friendly aspect of cloud is mostly overlooked alongside other multifaceted advantages of cloud computing. It has impacts far beyond just the conservation of energy. It, in a way, redefines the modern computing. The firms no longer have to worry about inefficient space nor should they worry about wastage of energy and money. Cloud computing also immunes the companies against carbon credits. They cannot afford to be a threat to the environment while being passionate of catering to the needs of its customers. The contradiction of natural wellbeing and environmental threats in industrial agenda is eradicated through the deployment of cloud computing.

Life as an IT contractor | Network World

Independence, job variability, earning potential, skills development. But is it worth it?

The upside of life as an IT contractor is alluring. You get to be your own boss, accept only the jobs you want, and work flexible hours. With each assignment comes the opportunity to learn new skills and gain exposure to different environments.

But there are obvious sacrifices – job security and paid vacations, for starters. As an IT contractor, you’re also often responsible for your own benefits (healthcare, retirement), paying taxes, and marketing yourself for the next gig.

Tech pros who successfully balance the pros and cons of contracting play an important role in the IT world. They provide manpower when workloads spike and can bring key expertise or niche skills to a team. In recent years, companies have increasingly relied on a contingent workforce to augment their full-time staff. According to new survey data from IT staffing and services firm TEKsystems, 26% of IT hiring managers expect to increase headcount for contingent workers in the second half of 2017 (another 46% report that headcount will remain the same for temporary workers, and 13% say it will decrease).
