Technology is growing rapidly with speeds that will have you grasping for air. And it isn’t stopping now unless there’s some sort of unforeseen global meltdown which can impact all future technological breakthroughs. 2017 Will have so much more to offer than previous years whether it is in the medical, technical, wearable or even artificial field you can be sure 2017 will break some records never seen before.
1.Wearable technology like smart devices:
Smart devices like wearable tech had made some serious strides during the previous years. Some of these devices like Google Glass, VR Headsets, Health and Fitness WristBands like the Muse Brain Sensing is about to gain new grounds in the foreseen future. An on-the-go Smart device that keeps people connected is not just a luxury but essential for socializing, business and health.
2. Artificial Intelligence:
Artificial Intelligence (AI) will probably be the most anticipated technology trends that can be expected moving forward in 2017 and beyond, machinery that will adapt chance and learn, performing manual work previously done by humans. Robotics is already seen in millions of factories around the globe replacing humans in various industries.
Even though this can be seen as a negative impact on job creation the flip side of the coin shows that machines can perform various tasks at once while producing more products at a faster rate than human beings. Whether we like it or not Artificial Intelligence is here so we should learn to embrace it.
3. The Internet of Things:
The IoT or Internet of Things refers to devices that can collect and send information over the internet. The most popular device we currently use is the cell phone. Newer devices that’s been introduced into the Internet of Things are coffee makers, printers and washing machines.
These household products or office products automatically transmit data to manufactures ordering new supplies when used supplies have run out. Almost any device that has a on/off switch can be part of the Internet of Things as long as it is connected to the internet. With the growing network of Internet of Things devices will connect to other devices while these devices also connect to people. An average of 26 billion connected devices will be part of the IoT within the near future.
4. Impact of Mobile devices
Mobile devices completely supersede the markets in every aspect. Manufactures is competing on a daily basis against each other trying to dominate the cell phone industry. Billions of dollars gets invested into better Smartphone’s with features like top of the range processing power, better and more powerful mega pixels, more ram and crystal clear displays.
Study’s has shown that four out of five Smartphone users has done one or another online transaction using their cell phone. Not only do consumers use their Smartphone’s for online shopping but it’s also been used for work from home purposes and even surveillance of homes and properties.
5. Cyber Security
Corporate Companies spend millions of dollars each year combating cyber hacking. What’s noticeable is that each year there is an upward trend in stealing digital information. What’s also very clear is that data is valuable to hackers. Various methods have also been installed to prevent hackers from hacking personal and company information.
Some agencies have even gone so far to recruit hackers into identifying weak spots in their security systems. In future years we will see companies progressively implement new strategies like Artificial Intelligence to help indentify security breaches and problem solving tactics.
6. Everything on-Demand
People are getting more used to getting everything on-Demand. Everything on-demand like Uber, who delivers services through mobile apps like takeaways, scheduling appointments, parking, courier services and movie tickets, just to name a few.
Should there not be services readily available. than someone somewhere is working on one. With longer working hours people is always looking for solutions to fit most of their daily activities into a time space available to them.
