Big data is a term for data sets that are so large or complex that traditional data processing application software is inadequate to deal with them. Big data challenges include capturing data, data storage, data analysis, search, sharing, transfer, visualization, querying, updating and information privacy.
Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other objects embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data.
The IoT allows objects to be controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit in addition to reduced human intervention.
IoT is still in its early developmental stages but has generated significant buzz in recent years due to the immense potential it holds for transforming the way we live and work.
3D printing is a process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process, an object is created by successively adding material layer by layer.
The 2010s saw the rise of wearable technology, with devices such as the Apple Watch and Fitbit becoming increasingly popular. This type of technology allows users to track their fitness levels, monitor their sleep, and receive notifications from their phone, among other things.
Augmented reality is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user’s view of the real world, providing a composite view.
