Emerging Technology
By Stephen Brock In Lifestyle, Photography Posted May 24th, 2013 12 Comments

Emerging technology is a relative term, because someone may see a technology as emerging and others may not see it the same way. Emerging technology is a new technology that is currently being developed, or will be developed within the next five to ten years. The new technology will substantially alter the business and social environment; the technology will include information technology, wireless data communications, man-machine communications, on-demand printing, bio- technologies, and advanced robotics.

What truly defines emerging technology is that the majority views its usefulness as dubious and it may not be embraced by most. I would consider cloud computing as emerging technology, since there are some questions as to how reliable and secure it truly is. I think anything making use of AI (Artificial Intelligence) would be considered as emerging technology, but I think movies have really scared people from anything employing AI!

I know some may mention iPads, and perhaps as business tools they would be considered as emerging technology, though I find that anything that is second generation or more is more likely moved into the realm of Pacing Technology.

In today’s world we are currently using some emerging technologies from our recent past, notably the global positioning system (GPS). It is in every part of our lives today. When we get into our cars, or in an aircraft, or even in the local commuter train, GPS plays an important role in not only getting us where we want to go but by providing information to keep us safe by tracking the movements of other vehicles and providing accurate time and distance information.

The MP3 is another of these technologies. We all use it almost every day of the year, from the small player in our pockets to the largest radio stations. MP3s are the choice of a technology driven society. By using MP3s we no longer need to store vast amounts of physical media in our homes. I know that my family is very happy with this bonus.

Another formerly emerging technology is the new medical prosthetics in use for our returning wounded service men and women. With advancements in miniaturization and lighter weight materials the new technology has become much easier to produce and much cheaper to purchase.

HTML (the Hypertext Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) are two of the core technologies for building Web pages. HTML provides the structure of the page, CSS the (visual and aural) layout, for a variety of devices.
CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed on screen, paper, or in other media. CSS saves a lot of work. It can control the layout of multiple web pages all at once. External stylesheets are stored in CSS files.
The style sheet with the highest priority controls the content display. Declarations not set in the highest priority source are passed on to a source of lower priority, such as the user agent style. This process is called cascading. One of the goals of CSS is to allow users greater control over presentation.

Saas/Cloud Computing
Software as a service (SaaS; pronounced /sæs/) is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. ... SaaS is typically accessed by users using a thin client via a web browser.
You can say that SaaS applications are running "in the cloud," and you would be correct. But SaaS applications are not the Cloud. In other words, Cloud Computing is for software developers, application vendors, savvy computer users, and corporate IT departments, not for people who use computer applications
