Our world is evolving, it is updating itself daily with innovations, either technical or biological. Every day we are inventing something new, we always seek for new things, we try to update ourselves with the innovations, most popular of them are today’s information technology. With the help of updated technology, we remain connected with others even in this pandemic, and still, now we are on the ship. From those modern technologies, today I am going to depict the one which is recasting today’s world with its vast applications in almost every field and the advantages of using it. I guess we all are already aware of the term Cyber-Physical System or CPS, but still, it is best to start from the beginning. So let’s start with the introduction.
The internet of things is the most basic tool for the postmodern era. Any objects surrounding us if connected to the internet, are called the Internet of Things. Things as simple as the light bulb can be made smart by connecting it to your smartphone through Wi-Fi, but of course, the bulb should have a microchip integrated into it to control the functionality. This communication between various devices sums up to digital intelligence. This isn’t much astonishing because even the modern computer understands only 0s and 1s i.e. simple on and off. So let’s have a deeper introspection into the IoT.
To run the business, you may have implemented the latest technologies in your business, but will you be able to be updated in real-time? When everyone is at home and the internet is the only way to communicate with each other, you may face trouble getting real-time updates. Stopping your surroundings to use the internet may be impossible to think about, but we can improve the connectivity. Here come the roles of 5G. We all know it for its greater connectivity and significantly lower latency. Now let’s see if it can revolutionize business productivity or not.
All of this quarantine period had passed with lots of uncertainties, sudden stoppage in the global economy, months of isolation from others, and being locked down in our own house. Now things get much better, and the economy is rising and getting back to its normal condition slowly, but the risks have not been over yet. Though the workplaces are opening and getting back to its previous way of working, and the businesses are again spreading their wings, the pandemic is not over yet! We just have unlocked ourselves from our homes, not from this pandemic. And for this, the workplaces will have to maintain certain rules and regulations like physical distancing, keeping more hygienic habits, and mostly avoiding unnecessary gatherings and meetings, which let the employers ask their employees to work from home for some more months. But this is also concerning how the companies will be able to provide their services if most of the employees are working from their homes, on other hand, how can the employees be much confident to come and operate from their workplaces by avoiding gatherings and touching on the common objects? In this digital world, is it possible to solve all these problems with technologies? Let’s find out.
The world is becoming digital, and so we are. We are doing almost everything in our lives on the internet, starting from education, watching movies, reading books, and contacting friends. And when you can find everything in your hand with the help of the internet, then why should you consider going out and check out the things physically! Like the same way, the businesses are being digital with the e-commerce platform, and through this, they are reaching millions of the customers, and selling their products and services online.
The world is already being digital and we are using our lives most of this digital platform and services, and our workplaces too. The huge growth of remote services and implementations of updated technology in businesses is increasing the production of data and this affects the data sharing process. As the amount and speed of data sharing are incensed, it affects the efficiency of information shared to a data center, such as Cloud, also the cloud might not be able to handle all of this at a time due to an increased amount of data generated by numerous IoT connected devices. In this scenario, edge computing can be a solution for processing data in a faster, cheaper, and reliable way. So let’s be more elaborate about what is this edge computing and why it should matter to us!
Human augmentation is mainly a field of study that focuses on the methods and technologies that enhance the productivity and capabilities of humans. Some of us may have an idea about it. Yes, technologies and the advancements of these technologies lead to the advent of human augmentations. Even for this augmentation, we can see individuals are going out and living their normal lives instead of being limited by their disabilities either physical or cognitive. Even the physically impaired individuals are welcoming these augmentations in their lives, and all of these are being possible with the combination of modern technologies.
Both edge computing and the blockchain are part of these emerging technologies. The edge computing is an advanced and extended form of cloud computing, with collaboration to the internet of things. On the other hand, the blockchain is the main underlying technology of the currencies with the help of the internet of things. Both of these are working on the networks and share the data through the networks. Edge computing and blockchain can hold their backs in their own ways like the blockchain can provide the decentralized marketplace for edge computing whereas edge computing can provide the low latency infrastructure to the blockchain for better performance. For your convenience, I am starting with some introductory parts for both of them.
