The Technology has the power to retrieve the almost any information and communicate in thousands of different ways using a device that fits in our pocket. There are five major trending technologies in store.
Artificial Intelligence (AI), from SIRI to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence is progressing rapidly. The science fiction often portrays AI as robots with human-like characteristics. AI can encompass anything from Google’s search algorithms to autonomous weapons. Artificial intelligence and advanced machine learning are composed of many technologies and techniques (e.g., deep learning, neural networks, natural-language processing [NLP]).
The more advanced techniques move beyond traditional rule-based algorithms to create systems that understand, learn, predict, adapt and potentially operate autonomously.
Machine learning has taken some massive strides forward in the past few years, even emerging to assist and enhance Google’s core search engine algorithm. We can see machine learning updates emerge across the board, entering almost any type of consumer application you can think of, from offering better recommended products based on prior purchase history to gradually improving the user experience of an analytics app.
Internet of Things:
We’ve been hearing about the forthcoming revolution of the Internet-of-Things (IoT) there are tons of individual appliances and apps on the market, but few solutions to tie everything together into a single, seamless user experience. Now that bigger company already well-versed in uniform user experiences (like Google, Amazon, and Apple) is getting involved.
AR and VR:
Augmented Reality(AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) capabilities will merge with the digital mesh to form a more seamless system of devices capable of orchestrating a flow of information that comes to the user as hyper personalized and relevant apps and services. We’ve already got some early-stage devices and tech for these applications.
Humanized Big Data:
Big data has been a big topic for the past five years or so, when it started making headlines as a buzzword. The idea is that mass quantities of gathered data, which we now have access to can help us in everything from planning better medical treatments to executing better marketing campaigns. But big data’s greatest strength is its quantitative, numerical foundation.
There’s always something new on the horizon, and we can’t help but wait and wonder what technological marvels are coming next.
