Abstract
In current times, mobile technologies are ubiquitous and the complexity of problems is continuously increasing. In the context of advancement of engineering, we explore in this paper possible reasons that could cause a saturation in technology evolution – namely the ability of problem solving based on previous results and the ability of expressing solutions in a more efficient way, concluding that ‘thinking outside of brain’ – as in solving engineering problems that are expressed in a virtual media due to their complexity – would benefit from mobile technology augmentation. This could be the necessary evolutionary step that would provide the efficiency required to solve new complex problems (addressing the ‘running out of time’ issue) and remove the communication of results barrier (addressing the human ‘perception/expression imbalance’ issue). Some consequences are discussed, as in this context the artificial intelligence becomes an automation tool aid instead of a necessary next evolutionary step. The paper concludes that research in modeling as problem solving aid and data visualization as perception aid augmented with mobile technologies could be the path to an evolutionary step in advancing engineering.
