The AI is one of the few technologies that are exciting the people in 2018. Google Home was released in 2016 and now it is gaining more popularity among the fans of latest technologies. Nowadays, people prefer to use intelligent personal assistants like Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri to carry out simple tasks like checking the time, setting the appointments etc. The technology giants are also working to integrate these services into the devices we use in our everyday routine. For example, we can now use Google Home to adjust the temperature of our room or turn off the lights. It is just the beginning. In the coming months, AI technology will attract more and more people.
The self-driving cars will be commonly running on the roads by 2022, according to the technology analysts. Tech companies including Google, Apple, Intel and many others are working for the development of this technology. The automotive manufacturers are also working hard to make the dream of autonomous cars come true. A human error is mostly the cause of most of the road accidents. But, with the introduction of autonomous cars, the number of road accidents will decrease, the experts say. The reason is obvious: a computer does not consume alcohol, talk to friends, or do other such things.
The companies like LG, Samsung, OPPO, and ZTE are working on foldable smartphones. It is very likely that this new kind of smartphones will attract a lot of users. Samsung has already said that its foldable phones will hit the market this year. The company has been working on this technology for the past few years.

But for many, these phones will offer cool things like better display, extra screen size, and not having to worry about the screens getting cracked.
The new OLED TVs promise better gaming experience. The user enjoys extra high-definition colors while watching a movie on an OLED screen. These kinds of TVs are making the headlines in the year 2018. In the next few years, a number of leading companies are expected to introduce their OLED TVs in the market. Let's see where this technology takes us in the future.
The reports suggest that the 5G (fifth generation of mobile technologies) networks will become a reality this year. Many telecommunication companies are already reportedly testing this service in many parts of the world. 5G will offer 10Gbps speed, according to the experts. The technology will use low power and allow many users to connect to a single device at the same time. But, the cost of using 5G service will be higher than that of the 4G-LTE service.
