The video “20 Emerging Technologies That Will Change Our World” discusses several technological innovations that have the potential to revolutionize various industries. These technologies are highlighted as game-changers that could bring about significant changes in how we live, work, and interact with each other. Two of the emerging technologies discussed are Starlink and EctoLife, which are poised to change the way we access the internet and conceive of childbirth, respectively. Quantum Computing, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Flying Whales, Cyberdog 2, Nuclear Fusion, Blockchain, Microelectronics, Cyber One, Deep Ocean Technology and Exploration, Sentinel, Metaverse, Giraffe Nap, Smart Insoles, Flexible Screen Printed Rechargeable Batteries, Robotic Technology, and Orcam Myi are also featured as potential game-changers
- 00:00:00 In this section, the speaker discusses two emerging technologies that are poised to revolutionize the world: Starlink and EctoLife. Starlink is a satellite internet constellation operated by SpaceX that provides high-speed and low-latency internet access to users worldwide. It differs from traditional satellite internet services in several ways, including the fact that its satellites orbit much closer to Earth and use a mesh network to route traffic, reducing congestion and improving reliability. Starlink is currently in beta testing and still under development. On the other hand, EctoLife is a futuristic vision of childbirth using artificial wounds to incubate babies for nine months. The EctoLife facility would be powered entirely by renewable energy and house up to 30,000 babies at a time. Parents would have the option to genetically engineer their babies before implantation using CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing. This technology allows them to eliminate genetic disorders and choose certain physical characteristics for their babies.
- 00:05:00 In this section, the excerpt discusses several emerging technologies that could change our world. It starts with Quantum Computing, which could be used to speed up machine learning processes and develop more powerful and accurate AI models. The discussion then moves on to natural language processing (NLP), specifically how Quantum Computing could improve the field. Next, Flying Whales, a French aeronautic startup developing a new type of Airship that can transport heavy loads to remote locations, is discussed. It is a hybrid Airship, using both helium and electric motors to fly, and is designed to be environmentally friendly with a low carbon footprint. It is also very versatile and can transport a wide variety of cargo. The excerpt then moves on to Cyberdog 2, a bioinspired quadruped robot that is powered by a nvidious Jetson Xavier nxai supercomputer for embedded and Edge systems. It is a significant improvement over the original Cyberdog, with a more compact and lightweight design, more powerful hardware, and a wider range of sensors. This allows it to navigate its surroundings with impressive accuracy and avoid obstacles. The excerpt ends with a discussion of nuclear fusion and its potential as a source of clean energy. While it is a complex and difficult process, there has been significant progress in recent years, and there are now several experimental Fusion reactors in operation. If practical fusion power can be achieved, it would be a major breakthrough in energy production. Finally, the excerpt discusses blockchain technology, which is a distributed Ledger system that allows for secure, transparent, and tamper-proof transactions. It could revolutionize many industries beyond cryptocurrencies, and its security and transparency make it an attractive option for many different applications.
- 00:10:00 In this section, the video discusses several emerging technologies that are likely to have a major impact on various industries. Microelectronics is highlighted as a rapidly evolving field that has made devices faster, more efficient, and more affordable, allowing everyone to have access to powerful computing devices. Another example is Cyber One, a humanoid robot developed by Xiaomi, which has various capabilities including recognizing human emotions and environmental sounds. Deep Ocean Technology and Exploration is planning to build a deep-sea underwater habitat called Sentinel, which will support crews of up to six people for up to 28 days and is powered by a microgrid architecture that integrates renewable power sources with deep satellite communications buoy. The Metaverse technology is also explained as a collection of technologies that enable the creation of a persistent shared and immersive virtual world, with examples of metaverse platforms and applications such as decentral and VR chat. Giraffe Nap, a Japanese company that develops and sells napping boxes that allow people to sleep standing up, is also discussed for its ergonomic, space-saving, and privacy features. These technologies showcase the potential for innovation and improvement in various industries and highlight the impact that technology can have on our lives.
- 00:15:00 In this section, an excerpt from a video titled “20 Emerging Technologies That Will Change Our World” is discussed. The transcript highlights various emerging technologies that are expected to have a significant impact on our lives in the future. Some of the technologies mentioned in this section include smart insoles that use AI to track and analyze walking and running forms, flexible screen-printed rechargeable batteries that have the potential to revolutionize the way electronic devices are powered, a humanoid robot developed by the robotics company Figure that is capable of performing a wide range of tasks and learning from its experiences, and the Orcam Myi smart reading feature that uses AI to help people with visual impairment read text more quickly and efficiently.
- 00:20:00 In this section of the video, the presenter discusses the use of smart reading and an airbag massage cushion as emerging technologies that will change our world. Smart reading allows for voice commands to control text playback, with functions such as pause, play, next, previous, and stop. Meanwhile, an airbag massage cushion provides a massage using airbags to apply pressure to different parts of the body, adjustable to suit individual needs. This cushion can also offer shiatsu and Swedish massages and is a safe and effective way to relieve muscle tension and pain, improve circulation, and promote relaxation.
