Technology has profoundly affected the way we perform our daily activities both at home and in our workplaces. Changes have been seen in the way we conduct business, communicate, travel and learn.
Every day that passes there is a discovery made in technology, and with the current trends and research, it is seen that 2018 will be exceptional in technology deployment.
Breakdown of 2018 Technology Predictions
This will be presented in “Intelligent Digital Mesh” model to further detail on Artificial intelligence, immersive experiences, event thinking, digital twins and continuous adaptive security.
The Intelligent Digital Mesh
This is the interlinking of people, devices, content, and services.
Intelligent: How Artificial Intelligence is utilized dynamically and potentially in almost every trending technology.
Digital: Mixing virtual and real words to generate a digital and networked environment.
Mesh: Connections between businesses, devices, people and services to give out digital results.
- Intelligent Apps and Analytics
By 2018, almost all applications and services will adopt the use of artificial intelligence at some level. Intelligent systems create intelligent intermediary between people and systems and this is the future everyone is looking upto. Analytics will use machine learning to automate data preparation and insight sharing among business users, workers and scientists.
- Digital Twins
A digital twin is a digital description of a natural entity or system. Digital twins will be mapped to real-world objects, and they will present information on the state of the correspondents, react to amendments, review operations and increase value. Digital twins will offer help in asset management and operational efficiency.
- Immersive Experience
This will be achieved by combining augmented reality, virtual reality, mixed reality and conversational platforms. In Immersive Experience, the user will interact with digital and real-world objects while still in the physical world. Mixed reality works along a spectrum and includes head-mounted displays and smartphone for Augmented Reality or Virtual Reality.
- Conversational Platforms
Conversational platforms will lead a pattern shift in translation to change from user to computer. These systems will be capable of answering both simple questions and complicated interactions. They will evolve to complex actions like witnessing crime scenes and sketching a crime scene.
The blockchain is aimed at sharing, distributing, decentralizing and tokenizing ledger to remove business friction by being independent of applications and participants. It will allow untrusted parties to exchange commercial transactions. This technology will tremendously change businesses.
- Cloud to the Edge
Edge computing ensures information processing, content collection, and delivery are kept closer to the sources of this information. Businesses should start using edge design patterns in their infrastructure to accommodate this trend on realization. Edge computing communicates with a computing platform for data collection and processing close to the edge of the networking.
- Continuous Adaptive Risk and Trust (CARTA)
Digital business leads to a complex and security risk-prone environment that requires close monitoring and management. The use of sophisticated technology tools increases the threat potential. CARTA will allow a real-time, risk and trust-based decision-making process with responses to any security affected digital business. CARTA will only be achieved once security is integrated with software development operation’s efforts to deliver continuous process and exploring deception technologies like adaptive honeypots.
