2017 has witnessed a number of ingenious technologies emerge and become the topics of discussion around boardroom tables all over the world. We kept hearing terms like Artificial Intelligence, cloud, NLP and blockchain in 2017. Considering all this, questions emerge – will 2018 be an exciting year? Yes—ish. The truth is, we’re right in the midst of a revolution. Sounds exhilarating, right? .So, what are the top three technology trends we’ll be witnessing in this year? Here’s the answer
Internet of Things(IoT) will grow to be bigger and better
Many organizations are already incorporating IoT technologies into their products, processes and workflows, but 2018 is shaping up to be a breakout year for IoT deployments.
Internet of Things won’t be limited to just one field because of the coherent integration of technology in daily life instead we will undoubtedly continue seeing more potential for Internet of Things as long as we are still in the digital era.
Even the common people will connect their physical devices, automobiles, home appliances and other items with the network of IoT.
Growing use of artificial intelligence and machine learning
Artificial intelligence (AI), along with the machine learning, isn’t just getting better, it’s being incorporated into a more diverse range of applications. Rather than being restricted to one field, like gaming or transforming human communication, AI has started to make an appearance in almost every new platform, app, or device, and this fashion will only accelerate in 2018. Sheryl Sandberg-Chief Operating Officer of Facebook says,”Artificial Internet & especially Deep Learning, the ‘magic’ that is bringing us driverless cars and facial recognition, has been sitting solidly atop the hype curve over the last few years. “We believe 2018 will be the year when deep learning moves beyond the hype and will find new markets outside of the Internet giants.” We shall watch many things are being automated beyond imagination by using AI.
Enterprise blockchain ready to go live in 2018
This year we may see blockchain technology struggle to break out of its cryptocurrency stereotype. The blockchain is best known as the technology behind Bitcoin. Many new businesses are turning to blockchain for transparency and accountability, but more traditional industries are expected to follow suit. In 2017, several aid agencies, including the United Nations’ World Food Programme, started exploring blockchains for aid payments. In 2018, blockchain could be adopted for several other uses, including health insurance, medical aids, casting vote, enabling refugees to own their digital identity, helping the homeless- the list seems to go on.
