With a regular diet of new iPhone and Android launches boasting the most progressive advancements in technology, it’s certain that the USA is a global leader in the technological marketplace. All of the emerging technology flowing out of the USA makes one wonder if Canada is getting left behind in the digital marketplace.
Growing In AI and VR
Google, Amazon, Facebook, and several other companies are driving researching and developing the Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning and Machine Learning technologies. Facebook is funding VR expansion through Oculus Rift which could change the future of ecommerce. Imagine toggling on a setting that allows you to see products in 3D, to even walk around them! Amazon is exploring several elements of AI, with their Alexa interface. From speech recognition to doing tasks for you, Alexa is quickly becoming the personal assistant of the future.
