Technology has come a long way in the past few decades. These days, the gadgets most of us use daily look like something right out of a 90’s sci-fi movie, and we can’t help but be glad we get to enjoy them. While it’s safe to say that technology has reached a new peak this decade, it’s also quite clear that we still have a long way to go before making the most out of its potential. Popular tech has a lot more uses than we give it usually give it credit for, and if you’re interested in finding out what some of those uses are, then keep on reading.

Artificial Intelligence in Video Games

AI is one of the most talked-about technologies of our time, and while most of us know that it’s used to power our virtual assistants and help computers learn more intuitively, a lot of people are unaware that it’s very commonly used in Video games. This incredibly versatile tech has found its use in video games to make NPC’s learn and build upon the player’s gameplay, so they know how to respond appropriately when they finally meet. While a much more simplified form of AI is used for this purpose, it’s exactly what makes video games so fun, unpredictable, and realistic.

Live Streaming in Online Casinos

Powered by this top-notch technology, platforms like Twitch, YouTube, and some social media dish out a ton of content that we consume for our viewing pleasure. These platforms are most often known for streaming gaming content, but what you might not have known is that you can also find live streaming tech used in another part of gaming – online casino gaming. Online casinos like might be best known for their excellent collection of slot games but they also host another smash hit players love – Live Casino games.

With Live Casino games, players can interact with a dealer in real-time when playing popular table games like Roulette, Baccarat, Blackjack, and more! This enhanced gaming experience makes players feel closer to a traditional casino environment while still enjoying all of the great benefits of playing from the comfort of their own home. Of course, these websites also provide other casino games that you can play solo. The interactive experience isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, which is why slot games and other less immersive casino classics are a pretty popular option as well.

VR in Recruitment and Training

It seems that the most popular tech has found its way into the gaming industry today, which is what VR is most commonly known for. Here, however, we’re going to look at a less-known use for it – recruitment and training. By using VR to simulate a real test situation for the potential workers being tested, recruiters cut down on costs, time, and can perform tests for risky jobs in a much safer environment. As you might have guessed, the biggest emphasis here is put on worker safety.

A similar pattern can be seen with training, especially when it comes to physical work that comes with many safety risks. This implementation of the tech works better for both trainers and trainees, benefiting them both. VR is also sometimes used to test and promote the development of in-demand soft skills, but there’s still a lot to work on in that process. Soft skills often require dialogue to truly shine through, so VR isn’t always the best option when they come into play.
