Leveraging disruptive technology to better our world

24 Jul

Who says disruptive technologies have to be used individually? What about pairing them up to enjoy a plethora of benefits?

There are 3 technologies that can be leveraged to make the world a better place for all. These three technologies are:

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • Virtual Reality (VR)
  • Internet of Things (IoT)

How can these technologies be leveraged?

Well, if you think of how IoT works, it makes things a little simpler to understand. The technology is designed on an “if this, then that” model. AI requires data in order to function and that’s exactly what IoT generates. VR can sweeten the deal by providing immersive visuals of the data which creates an enhanced experience for the user. Put all of this together and you have a system that provides exceptional benefits!

IoT, VR and AI Preps Cyclists for the Tour de France

A great and on topic example of how IoT, VR and AI can be used together for the greater good can be seen in the preparation of cyclists for this year’s Tour de France. While each technology individually could provide a degree of benefits to cyclists, when used together, the result is phenomenal.

Prior to the race, cameras are used to film the route. VR is then used to expose cyclists to the route and allow them to race it, virtually of course. Together, AI, VR, and IoT allows the cyclists to prepare themselves for racing in different weather conditions and GPS data collected provides information on the bike. When you think about it, it’s all quite impressive!

It’s not just the TdeF cyclists who benefit from dispruptive technology

These 3 disruptive technologies can be leveraged in many industries to assist with design, maintenance and logistics, and all 3 of the technologies are used in our homes. Think how smart home systems can control everything from the temperature of the home to the entertainment presented in each room and the amount of light you let in.

Industries that really want to leverage the benefits of latest tech will find that using these 3 technologies together will present the best possible outcomes.

Of course, there’s the safety and security of data to consider during the process and we strongly recommend that if you plan to use technology to boost your business success and home comforts, that you do so responsibly and take security seriously.
