Views on the future of advertising from Mediassociates

Like all great inventions, SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas, has gone through its Gartner Hype Cycle. First came the buzzing hyperbole. In 2007, a startup called Twitter took SXSW by storm, and one year later, Mark Zuckerberg was grilled in a interview (deemed either disastrous or sexist)  by journalist Sarah Lacy, generating wild enthusiasm for Facebook as the new, big media platform. Were you there? Did you hear Zuck speak? If you worked in media, SXSW Interactive each March — a thought-leadership series far different than the concurrent music and film SXSW carnivals — was the place to be.

And then the buzz collapsed. Big brands crept in, taking over entire buildings with “activations” and with their slickness eroding SXSW’s cool. Some of this was positive: The 9:1 male-female ratio of the conference’s early days became more 50:50, and the exaggerated hoopla over every little app launch (Foursquare, Gowalla, Color,

Tech companies rang in the start of the new year by unveiling some of their ambitious plans for the coming months. Startups and multinational companies alike are beginning to feel the ripple effects of innovation in the industry, with technology becoming more intertwined in everyday lives each year.

As 2018 progresses, here are 5 future technologies you can expect to reach the public in the next couple of years.

1. The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things has long been talked about amongst tech insiders as the next big innovation in home technology. In recent years, IoT has begun carve a niche for itself in everyday life with the growing adoption of systems like Google’s Home and Amazon’s Alexa. These devices will continue to integrate more aspects of the home into one harmonious system by utilizing the internet, allowing a user to control anything from the

Scientists have developed what they call living concrete by using sand, gel and bacteria.

Researchers said this building material has structural load-bearing function, is capable of self-healing and is more environmentally friendly than concrete – which is the second most-consumed material on Earth after water.

The team from the University of Colorado Boulder believe their work paves the way for future building structures that could “heal their own cracks, suck up dangerous toxins from the air or even glow on command”.

Tiny hybrid robots made using stem cells from frog embryos could one day be used to swim around human bodies to specific areas requiring medicine, or to gather microplastic in the oceans.

“These are novel living machines,” said Joshua Bongard, a computer scientist and robotics expert

Technology: Past, Present, and Future

Technology: Past, Present, and Future

Purpose

To broaden students’ awareness of technology by examining inventions of the past and present and by learning how inventions inspire and lead to the development of other inventions.


Context

In this lesson, students examine a number of technological innovations that have occurred since the beginning of humanity. As they become familiar with these needs-based inventions, they are prompted to consider how they helped change the way people lived and how societies worked. As students gain an understanding of this ongoing social process, they should come to see how earlier innovations inspired and contributed to later and more modern ones.

As long as there have been people, there has been technology. On the whole, technology has been a powerful force in the development of civilization, all the more so as its link with science has been forged. Technology is an intrinsic part of a cultural system and it both shapes

Modern Industrial Design Ideas and Future Technology



Eather One is a conceptual plane powered by electric motor, it’s a vision of the future, where planes were all electric. This project is an attempt to revolutionize flying, what if Airbus created an electric plane, what would it look like? The main problem of an electric plane lies in the weight of the battery, […]







Eather One Electric Plane Concept Generates Its Power from Air Friction



With a rise in accidents involving cyclists in London is it time to incorporate safety into the new low/zero emission target of England’s capital? With the popularity of the ‘Barclays Bike Hire’ scheme (now sponsored by Santander) this vehicle is designed as an alternative to work alongside the scheme allowing users to hire the small […]

The future of programming – O'Reilly Radar

Programming is changing. The PC era is coming to an end, and software developers now work with an explosion of devices, job functions, and problems that need different approaches from the single machine era. In our age of exploding data, the ability to do some kind of programming is increasingly important to every job, and programming is no longer the sole preserve of an engineering priesthood.

Over the course of the next few months, I’m looking to chart the ways in which programming is evolving, and the factors that are affecting it. This article captures a few of those forces, and I welcome comment and collaboration on how you think things are changing.

Where am I headed with this line of inquiry? The goal is to be able to describe the essential skills that programmers need for the

H+ME Technology | The Future of Homebuilding, Today.

It’s not just a house.

It’s a H+ME.


Imagine an entirely new approach to
homebuilding – where every system and
component within the structure is designed
to perform in perfect harmony with the
others. Where all of the framing is
manufactured to the most stringent
specifications in a single, state-of-the-art
plant. And where every step of your home’s
construction, and everything used in its
construction, is precisely planned,
produced, measured, tested and
accounted for.

Better,
by design.

Adapted from technology first developed in Germany and Sweden, the H+ME approach applies thoroughly modern solutions to traditional construction challenges.

The Evolution of Technology: Past, Present and Future

MySpace, YourSpace, BookFace: The Social Media Awakening

We’ve watched texting evolve from sending text-only messages (literally texting) to the addition of imagery, thanks to the viral spread of gifs, memes, emojies and bitmojies. In fact, with the spike in video-sharing, actual text is shrinking (meet SnapChat, Instagram Stories, Facebook Stories, Periscope, Vine, etc. and shorthand abbreviations). SMH.

Social networks continue to change the way people engage with one another. Ironically, the constant connection and way people interact with one another seems to morph to a more superficial setting online. Although superficial at times, this form of communication helps people stay closer to each other when they would have otherwise lost contact.

Face to Face (Virtually, Speaking)

Face-to-face conversations via technology are resurfacing, though, and even strengthening, thanks to higher-quality video and streaming capabilities (enter: Skype, Google Hangouts, Zoom, FaceTime, live streaming, etc.). With more people engaging in web/video conferencing online,

Website Growth Trends Of The Future

Websites are internet actual-estate by which you should invest your money and time to generate excellent outcomes sooner or later. The website options movies from the global know-how, entertainment, and design conferences hosted by the Sapling Foundation. Most websites offer you common bands which can be “vaguely” related, but this website would not discriminate and gives an equal spot to indie and pop.

Specially “BrightKite” and “” are improbable microblogging site to be part of. Making pals and exploring completely different features is kind of ENJOYABLE in both these sites. And they present a podcast treasure of brief videos, most created in Alabama, in several topics.

The site has rapidly grown into some of the well-liked video-streaming websites for anime fans since its launch. MySpace even gives Facebook integration now and all of the features that you’d count on from an internet 2.zero social networking website: customizable profiles, blogs, and … Read More
