Throughout the history of mankind, man has used different ways to communicate, from communication with signs, to remote communication through advanced technological devices. The advances achieved in the area of telecommunications have allowed man to perform in a more efficient way, and it is this efficiency that has largely motivated companies to establish greater challenges among their workers. This has led to alternatives of great impact over time, such as the Internet, high-speed trains, sophisticated aerial means, communication cables, cellular telephony, cable television, and a long etcetera of state-of-the-art mechanisms.
At the beginning of the third millennium, humanity is creating a global network of instantaneous transmission of information, ideas and value judgments in science, commerce, education, entertainment, politics, art, religion, and all other fields. In this network, the feelings of humanity can be seen in real time, but at the same time it is also possible to distort, manipulate or frivolize these feelings, i.e., paradoxically, the media can also be used to separate and isolate.
The prestigious MIT in Massachusetts recently announced a series of changes in the form of advanced technologies that will change the world:
Wireless Sensor Networks: the creation of networks composed of thousands or millions of sensors. The networks will observe almost everything, including traffic, weather, seismic activity, the movements of battalions in wartime, and the condition of buildings and bridges, on a much more precise scale than ever before.
Injectable Tissue Engineering: To replace traditional organ transplants.
Nano Solar Cells: The sun may be the only source with sufficient capacity to make us independent of fossil fuels.
Mechatronics: To improve everything from fuel economy to fuel performance in its various forms.
Grid computing systems (Grid Computing): the so-called grid protocols will be able to link almost anything: databases, simulation, and visualization tools and even the enormous, enormous power of the computers themselves.
Molecular Imaging: these allow researchers to advance in the analysis of how proteins and other molecules function in the body.
Nanoimprint Lithography: These devices point to a future of ultrafast electronics and communicators.
Software Assurance: research into tools that produce error-free software.
Glycomics: A field of research that aims to understand and control the thousands of types of sugars made by the human body to design medicines that will impact major health problems. From rheumatoid osteoarthritis to the spread of cancer.
Quantum Cryptography: Gisin’s quantum cryptography tool relies on quantum physics applied to atomic dimensions and can transmit information in such a way that any attempt to decrypt or eavesdrop would be detected. This is especially relevant in a world where the Internet is increasingly being used to manage all kinds of affairs.
