Seems, future computing devices would be smarter than ever. As per a latest report generated by IBM(NYSE), the future computing devices could mimic human senses like the ability to see, smell,touch, taste and hear.
According to a latest information, IBM has unveiled the seventh annual "IBM 5 in 5", which has listed innovations that have the potential to change the way people work, live and interact during the next five years.
The IBM 5 in 5 is based on market and societal trends as well as emerging technologies from IBM’s R&D labs around the world that can make these transformations possible.
According to Ramesh Gopinath, Director – India Research Lab and Chief Technology Officer, IBM India/South Asia, “At IBM, we are continuously working towards advancing computing in a variety of fields. We have already witnessed the benefits of cognitive systems for advancing numerous aspects of the human experience from agriculture and healthcare to utility management and weather forecasting.
Gopinath further added , “We envision a day when computers make sense of the world around them just like human brain relies on interacting with the world using multiple senses”.
In next five years, it is expected that tiny sensors embedded in computers or mobile phones would be able to detect if someone is coming down with a cold or other illness. This could be achieved by analyzing odours, biomarkers and thousands of molecules in someone's breath. These tools would be able to help doctors to diagnose internal disease like liver and kidney infections, bronchial asthma, diabetes and epilepsy.
Let’s hope, to see this innovative technology in next five years.
