This year has almost gone and we are about to start a new year. In this year we have got many trends and topics of the tech world to discuss. Among them, some are the topmost topics. We think the top 3 tech trends of this year are deep learning, digital currencies, Industrial IOT. Without this 3 topics, some special mentions are Blockchain, Robotics, assisted transportation, AR/VR, Ethics, laws, and policies for privacy, security, and liability, Accelerators and 3D, Cybersecurity and AI.
Technology is now deriving at such a rapid pace that annual predictions of trends can seem out-of-date before they even go live as a published blog post or article. As technology evolves, it enables even faster change and progress, causing the acceleration of the rate of change, until eventually, it will become exponential.
Now, Let’s discuss the top 3 topics of 2018 in our opinion.1. Deep Learning (DL) are already on the peak point of revolution. In data centers they are widely adopted (Amazon making graphical processing units [GPUs] available for DL, Google running DL on tensor processing units [TPUs], Microsoft using field programmable gate arrays [FPGAs], etc.), and DL is being extensively analyzed at the edge of the network to diminish the amount of data propagated back to data centers. Applications such as videos, images and audios recognition are already being deployed for a variety of verticals. DL massively depends on accelerators and is used for a variety of serviceable functions. Deep Learning, under Machine Learning is a separate branch of IT technology, focusing on artificial intelligence. It collects data to help machines think and work like humans. The inception of neural networks has further enhanced the potentials of deep learning.
2. Digital currencies are digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank. Block chain technology has been a consequential innovation, with many in the space referring back to Internet Bubble for comparison. Despite a down month for the market at large in January, crypto currencies are still rapidly growing as technological assets and consumer products. February and March were critical months for crypto, as investors, analysts, and just about everyone else was eager to see how Crypto currencies rebound and continue to mature. A crypto-currency is a digital asset that can be exchanged. Ethereum, and newcomers Lite-coin, Dash, and Ripple have become commonly traded currencies. They will continue to become a more widely adopted means of trading. This will trigger improvement of cyber security because the stakes will be ever higher as their values rise. In addition, digital currencies will continue to enable and be enabled by other technologies, such as storage, cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), edge computing, and more.
3. Industrial IOT is empowered by DL at the edge, industrial IoT continues to be the most widely adopted use case for edge computing. It is driven by real needs and requirements. We anticipate that it will continue to be adopted with a broader set of technical offerings enabled by DL, as well as other uses of IoT. By 2020, it’s predicted there will be over 30 billion IoT devices. As the popularity of the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to rise across industries, it’s important to take note of which trends could affect your business. IoT will affect every industry, from retail to healthcare. As a marketer, you’ll want to stay informed on the upcoming trends to know which ones can help you achieve sustainable, long-term growth, and which ones are more hype than substance.
Disruptive technology regulates the trends, the way the New Year will be shaped. They will accelerate and transform many industries at a rapid pace throughout the year. They will shape the world and the future and will be present on the horizon of business owners and investors alike.
The intelligent digital mesh is going to include interconnected humans, robots, devices, content, and services all driven by digital transformation. Disruptive technology trends are going to propel the future where technology innovation leaders must evolve and change at the same pace of the trends they must embrace. Or, they could be left behind and suffer a slowly mass extinction. Perhaps the obvious technology to watch closely in 2019.
Perhaps, technology-based careers don’t change at that same speed, but they do evolve, and the savvy IT professional identifies that his or her role will not stay the same. The IT worker of the 21st century will constantly be learning, out of necessity if not desire.
What does this mean for us? We think it means staying current with technology trends. And it means keeping our eyes on the future, to know which skills we’ll need to know and what types of jobs we want to be qualified to do. In our view, that’s an almost wrap for 2018.
