Future Proofing

Matrics2 is entering the “Next Industrial Revolution” with game changing technology that will transform the short term and long-term future. 

Welcome to the Future

Technologies that will be mainstreamed by 2025:

1. Internet of Things (IoT)

Anything that interfaces wirelessly to a network of “things” must be authenticated and verified to be secure. Today there is not a total secure world conductivity, maybe a bit here a bit there, but not the total sum of the world. There is nothing to communicate or monitor all connected objects or things via any state-of-the-art computing system(s). Until this happens, it won’t be possible to hear the vision of the real-time heartbeat of the World. When this does happen, it will impact every human interaction within the globe as profoundly as the Internet has revolutionized communication. By 2020, there will be 50 billion devices connected to the Internet. How will our world do this? The IoT represents the next evolution.

Matrics2’s vision is to make the IoT a reality - through a patented process for assigning a random number to everything / anything in the world - making it accessible through the internet. This is done by enhancing and then eventually replacing barcode technology with an ecosystem of NFC Touch Access Points. A simple single tap of a Smart Phone to any Matrics2 tag allows users to trace and track a product’s life cycle, curtail counterfeiting and theft, enable direct, and targeted marketing.

2. Automation

The store of the future is automated checkout. However, the technology will never reach its full potential until each individual item has a unique, non-reproducible ID. A 12-ounce bag of potato chips has the same bar code as every other 12-ounce bag of chips, and they are not unique. The same is true in Apparel, Pharma, CPG, Food and Beverage and most retail. Unique, economic, chipped labels will expand track and trace capabilities while increasing security of the data.

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a subset of IoT. IIoT is a leading trend transforming industrial businesses today and into the future. IIoT is a network of intelligent devices, sensors, and actuators where massive amounts of data are constantly collected, monitored, exchanged and analyzed to measure the productivity variation with feedback to make corrections or adjustments without human intervention. This same technology applies to devices controlling appliances and environments in the home, school, and stores.

3. Cryptocurrency

Bitcoin had a meteoric price jump in 2017. Major technology companies, as well as, government regulators are watching this new financial market.

As these coins begin to work themselves out and exchanges even out the fluctuations in prices, expect these assets to be mainstream methods of payment by 2020. Until each coin and transaction can be verified and authenticated via blockchain the cryptocurrency markets will be as unstable as they are today.

4. Block Chain

Block Chain is an electronic ledger which provides an authoritative record of data or events, such as monetary transactions, property records, and other valued assets in a decentralized and distributed manner. It creates linear lists of transactions cryptographically joined in sequential chains of blocks that are replicated across peer-to-peer computer networks. Its authority is derived from consensus. The record cannot be changed after the fact without changing all subsequent blocks and without the consensus of the network.

5. Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Most people have no idea what’s coming in AI.

There are three factors enabling the emergence of AI.

1. Superfast computer chips.

2. All of the world’s data is available on the internet.

3. Deep learning.

China has established its #1 national priority as the goal of achieving world domination in AI in the next 10 years. One half of the capital invested in AI is in China. China has four times as many people as the U.S. with 50 million using social media.

The more data that you have, the better the AI. Matrics2’s patented technology will become the de facto standard for data security assuring Matrics2’s long-term relevance in all of these emerging technologies.
