In 2017 there was incredible progress in many aspects of technology. AI’s assistant, connected life and other intelligent home systems that continue to make home automation available are particularly interesting. While considerable progress is being made in the smart home space, increasing capacity and adaptation, significant advances have also been made in industrial solutions, with Data as a Service as a big problem for many industries.
10 Technology Trends That Will Dominate 2018
The technological trends that dominate the market are growing as we get closer to what many call the modern industrial revolution in 2018. Here are some of the key technology trends designed to generate interest in the coming months:
- Intelligent artificial intelligence (AI)
Through the use of advanced analytics, cognitive interfaces in complex systems and machine learning technicians, AI will provide business users with access to powerful knowledge never before available to them. Currently, artificial intelligence is fundamentally different from ordinary human intelligence, so the AI arms race is in full swing as more and more organizations and governments increase their investments to develop artificial intelligence.
- Blockchain Applications
As Blockchain applications mature, smart contracts will continue to take off, and ICOs will continue to grow. As a result, there will also be more regulation in initial currency offerings, as blockchains range from exaggerated factors to legitimate innovative economic growth.
- New privacy solutions
The emergence of new and more advanced technologies also represents a more significant and more significant threat to privacy and security. Although these threats show no sign of slowing down, more advanced security solutions and measures will be established, including new cryptography methods such as ZKP or Zero Knowledge Proof, where the ownership of knowledge can only be demonstrated by revealing the content of this knowledge.
- GDPR or general regulation of data protection
Another new approach to data ownership. The continued development of GDPR will give control to the original creators or owners of data or content instead of the platforms where the content was created.
- Edge computing
Technological developments are also evolving into the Edge trend, which is configured to help create a faster and faster way of processing data than the cloud.
- The Internet of Things (IoT)
The very familiar technology that has undoubtedly made a special place in our family or our homes and that gave it the title of the so-called smart home is now driving a significant change, say analysts. Let’s wait and see what it means next year.
- Serverless Computing
Serverless computing, sometimes called the function as a service (FaaS), allows developers to write and implement the code in the cloud without provisioning resources. It’s not server-free, applications are still running on servers, but developers do not have to worry about servers at all. Automation supports all supplies and configuration, freeing developers to focus on code.
API stands for application programming interface. In simple terms, an API is a simple way to allow an application to interact with another application, web service or service in the cloud.
- Automatic learning
Artificial intelligence and its subset of machine learning seem to be ubiquitous in today’s technology industry. According to a recent report by Deloitte Global, “In 2018, large and medium-sized enterprises will intensify their use of machine learning.
- Security and protection
With the rapid evolution of the mobile application industry, third-party SDKs are gaining dominance and applications are collecting more and more information that increases risks, vulnerabilities and security vulnerabilities. This doubt indeed requires security and protection solutions as a great need.
