Many folks engaged in the digital revolution from the beginning still find it wondrous at times. The experience must be truly mind-bending and useful though. Young techies in their twenties cannot exactly relate to folks in their thirties or forties with the experience of a much less ‘technical’ reality. The differences of growing up in an era when mobile phones seemed rather an improbable science-fiction idea, the pace of latest developments can feel rather wondrous at times. Things that were seen only in movies like star wars coming to mundane everyday reality (not all of it of course till now) provides a great kind of immersion.
Visualizing the future
Modern advances in artificial intelligence, 3D printing, digital text cultivation, and virtual reality simulations are some of the neatest areas of wondrous advancements, besides the overall internet obviously. These technologies are still in their rather nascent phases, but they hold immense potential to revolutionize the future into a deeper (emotional) interaction between man and machine.
Immersive data visualization refers to the evolutionary system of viewing Big Data in 3D surrounding, with the ability to interact with the viewer. Several top tech services globally are exploring the various aspects of fielding the unending stream of dynamic data into a virtual 3D experience. Numerous issues still wait figuring out for the system to be perfect, but the rate of progress is good.
Work in progress
The issues include developing real time dynamic sorting algorithm, instant archive access to static data, filtering, and to design a perfect corporate technology to this end. This technology aspect not only includes the software and the hardware aspects, but also in delivering an aesthetic, fluent user experience. Furthermore, with the incredible demand for virtual gaming recreation from a multibillion dollar global industry, there is also a need of segregating the recreational from the official on the same platform, or probably, combing the elements of both. High-tech centers such as Tokyo regularly serve as conference venues for AI related discussions.
Moreover, serving its roles as a digital archive of accessible data, the internet is a rich source of figuring out the developments and keeping pace with latest news. Things are in the process of going somewhere, and anyone involved with data mining recognize the refreshing value of working in virtual ambience of numbers, signs, and alphabets simulated in space! However, for all practical purposes, the 3D technology is yet to be as assertive and perfectionist as one would benefit from the granular analytics at a computer screen. The immersive data visualization resources currently available might feel great, but are still insufficient for realistic execution of complex business algorithms fluently.
A New Perspective
A very noteworthy trend here is that the application of this Virtual Reality technology for artistic executions along with corporate and gaming related purposes. Renowned international artists like Bjork have already perfected the available technology to deliver truly mind-expanding experiences to viewers. In all the purviews, the world can definitely look up to a nearby future that combines artistry, business, and adrenaline (as in gaming) into a harmonic symphony of accessible technology for a truly twenty first century world.
