Eliseo Delgado is a computer engineer who has dedicated more than a decade to consumer product reviews, covering topics such as robotics, A.I., and the IoT. Here, he shares his insight into 5G network upgrades and explains how it will revolutionize existing technology.
Eliseo Delgado has made it a point to consistently try out new technology, research what emerging tech is in the works, and pen thoughtful reviews of consumer products. Recently, he’s covered the ongoing conversation around 5G networks and helps readers understand how they will affect consumer lifestyle.
“In the past, our smartphones have been dependent on carriers to provide 3G and 4G network connections for faster communication and browsing speed,” says Eliseo Delgado. “Upgrading to 5G doesn’t just mean you have access to the latest and greatest tech––it means unparalleled speeds for a range of technologies and new potential for the Internet of Things (IoT) and beyond.”
In wireless communication, 5G stands for the “fifth generation” and describes the connection speed of the network carriers. Consider that 1G connections that have been around for decades offer a connection speed of 2.4 Kbps, whereas the more recent 4G offers 100 Mbps – 1 Gbps. Each new generation allows people to work with technology, use the internet, and communicate with other devices faster than ever before.
“5G isn’t a simple upgrade from 4G,” says Eliseo Delgado. “This new capability is still under development, but it is expected to provide a maximum connection speed of 35.46 Gbps, which is 35 times faster and more powerful than the last generation.”
With consumer smartphones having access to a 5G network, they will be able to cut down the time it takes to send and receive messages, download apps or videos, and surf the web. On a 5G network, a 90-minute video that would today take around four minutes to download would be available in full in as little as ten seconds. Considering that mobile streaming is such an integral part in the daily lives of millions around the world, this upgrade in connection speed would mean tremendous improvements in convenience and efficiency.
A faster network also signals improvements for growing technologies such as augmented reality and the IoT. Both augmented and virtual reality technologies are making a huge appearance in consumer tech (like video games) and in professional tech (like medical or educational equipment). In augmented and virtual reality, latency is a vital factor as too much of it tends to give users nausea as a result. 5G connections ensure smooth, continuous video and create a positively immersive experience for users.
For the IoT, 5G connections mean extremely more reliable communication between devices and the ability to add more devices to a single network. The strength of a connection is usually determined by the finite number of devices allowed onto the network, and 5G makes it possible for ten times the amount of hardware to effectively use a shared IoT network (compared to 4G connections).
“The possibilities are essentially endless with 5G, as it improves nearly every aspect of our interconnected technology––whether that’s our smartphones, our streaming websites, or our ability to create truly smart homes of the future,” says Eliseo Delgado.
An online reviewer of emerging technologies, Eliseo Delgado Jr. stays up-to-date on the latest consumer products taking the world by storm. Here, he reviews the newest addition to luxurious living and the Internet of Things (IoT), the ShadeCraft Robotics’ solar-powered SUNFLOWER that enhances time spent outdoors.
One of the most impactful advances in consumer technology, IoT products connect to the internet and to each other to provide consumers with a highly-convenient method of interacting with many home appliances. Through the IoT, Eliseo Delgado Jr. tells us consumers can control home light levels through their smartphones, preheat ovens on a regular schedule, keep up an active grocery list based on monitored refrigerator items, and more. ShadeCraft products take the power of the IoT to the next level to provide consumers with outdoor products that prove to be just as intuitive as the smart thermostat or the DVR.
“All ShadeCraft products use smart technology to boost comfort and convenience while outside,” says Eliseo Delgado Jr., “and the SUNFLOWER is the ultimate smart parasol with a variety of tech-savvy outdoor features.”
ShadeCraft Robotics is based out of Los Angeles and strives to improve human life outdoors through robotic technology and industrial design. Their latest product, the SUNFLOWER, combines all the advanced features of their previous products into one smart parasol that delivers comfort and convenience to decks, pool sides, gardens and more.
The SUNFLOWER is wireless and provides many Bluetooth, WiFi, and cellular capabilities to connect with other smart devices without interruption. Integrated solar panels on the parasol’s umbrella generate renewable energy to power and operate the device throughout sunny and shady days alike. It can be controlled from a smartphone as well as take instructions through voice interaction. The voice-activated command system allows for hands-free control while taking a dip in the pool or lounging in a chair under its shade. The device even comes with built-in speakers to stream premium audio from smart devices.
“This product delivers everything you’d need to relax and enjoy the outdoors to the fullest,” says Eliseo Delgado Jr. “And what’s more, it moves on its own with help from sophisticated cameras and sensors to deliver continuous cover from the sun without having to readjust the parasol.”
It’s an intuitive product that thinks for itself––”waking up” in the morning and tracking the sun to receive optimal boosts of energy. It never needs to be adjusted and will automatically open and close with the rising and setting of the sun (unless instructed to do otherwise). The product also delivers ambient lighting that can be automated or controlled throughout the day or night with adjustments in brightness and color.
“The SUNFLOWER is the new staple of luxurious outdoor living and connects seamlessly within the IoT,” says Eliseo Delgado Jr. “While it may not be the first smart device people think of, ShadeCraft’s latest product is sure to soon find its way into tech-savvy homes around the world.”
Computer engineer Eliseo Delgado has spent the past ten years reviewing consumer products and reporting on the latest advances in technology. He shares his savviness and insight with readers on the latest advances in artificial intelligence and how they affect the modern workplace.
A graduate from the New York University Tandon School of Engineering, computer engineer Eliseo Delgado has worked with a range of tech advances in his career and is an authoritative voice on topics like artificial intelligence, cryptocurrency, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Below, he helps readers understand some of the recent advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning and how it’s affecting contemporary employees.
“We’ve worked alongside machines since the Industrial Revolution, but only in the last couple of decades have we introduced machine learning to the workplace,” says Eliseo Delgado. “This new element ultimately helps researchers, engineers, clinicians and other professionals perform work more efficiently and enhance their output.”
Artificial intelligence allows professionals to do things like process massive amounts of data quickly and expedite services, which in turn enables them to provide answers or assemble information much more quickly. While engineers aren’t giving machines the total cognitive representation of the human mind, they allow them to think and act like humans under certain conditions, especially by using tools and problem-solving skills to improve processes.
“Through artificial intelligence, we can teach machines to perform a range of cognitive tasks as well as task advanced machinery with increasingly difficult manual tasks,” says Eliseo Delgado. “These enhancements will help propel a lot of careers to be more productive, but it will also have adverse effects on certain positions or job fields.”
Increased productivity and lowered costs thanks to advances in artificial intelligence will benefit society overall but may impact individual workers or specific fields in negative ways. Industries like commercial truck driving are likely to replace human workers with AI self-driving vehicles. Many factory positions have already seen their workers replaced by more efficient machines that can provide seemingly unlimited output.
However, machine learning has improved other industries such as education and medicine in dramatic ways. In education, artificial intelligence can be used to improve curriculum, automate basic activities like grading, and provide students with support and tutoring. In medicine, improved algorithms and artificial intelligence can help diagnose diseases and conditions more accurately as well as assist during procedures, freeing up time for doctors and surgeons.
“AI has the potential to replace certain roles, but it can also assist those with specialized positions who may not have other human candidates in the field to turn to,” says Eliseo Delgado.
Artificial intelligence empowers the workplace in new ways and helps accomplish feats that would otherwise be unattainable, and it’s proving to be a necessary tool for progress.
