More than we admit technology is playing a major role in our life. In the last two decade technology has been trying to find its way to our day to day life and it has been very successful.

We treat technology as a family member-even if that is a little co-dependent. it’s certainly made aspects of our lives easier: We’re no longer forced to send letters through the postal service, book vacations through travel agents, shop in stores, visit the library for research material, or wait for our photos to be developed. Thanks to technology, all of these activities can be performed either digitally or online.

At the same time, though, technology can make life more convoluted-especially when something doesn’t work right or doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do. It’s not always easy to understand how a product or service works, with more technology it gets more sophisticated, complex and harder to understand or work with it.

In the next decade the focus of technology providers will be intelligence. Good examples are cars with no drivers, computers that works with voice command and do not require keyboards, and many more.

Scientist needs to work side by side with engineers to make this happen. Would it not be much more convenient for high tech companies to pick out intelligence engines from a shelf to make their products more intelligence rather than try to develop them themselves?
