The intelligent use of data enables the casinos to provide services better. The online casinos illustrate how the business models are changing due to technology as the different industries employ the internet to provide services and products.


There are times when drones were just used for recreational purposes, but now technology has been used to modify drones to be of use to various industries. Some parts in Africa drones are used to deliver medical supplies, especially if the area is not accessible by road or other means of travel.

The other industry that has decided to employ the drone is the agricultural sector. The drones monitor the farms and detect essential factors such as the presence of pests and diseased crops. Drones are of significant help when it comes to monitoring, and different industries use them.

Virtual Reality
