With all of the rumours about technology and its latest advancements, did you know that holograms and data visualization are poised to transform the shopping experience once and for all? This trend will surely prove to be a revolutionary step, and it’s not as far off as you might be thinking.
Many hospitals and healthcare facilities resort to using outdated computers and software for locating your medical history even today, which firstly, makes it hard to locate and time-consuming, and secondly, the information may not be up to date! While these systems may be one notch up from the almost obsolete paper file systems, they are yet short of the level of efficiency these systems demand.
The solution? The conversion of healthcare facilities to using electronic health records. It was estimated that 2015 was to be the year in which most providers will be using cloud services, but even now the healthcare industry lags behind and has a long way to go.

Nature has been studied and imitated by humans to better understand the methods of the natural world, and the future of our species has become heavily tied to our own inventive progress.
