Cloud computing used to be considered as a technology of the future; however, in the modern life, with incredible growth rate, cloud computing has become the foundation for most technology startups. Recently, NashTech, a technology company specializing in software development with experience and insight into the international technology industry, has predicted some technology trends that will dominate in 2018.
1.Artificial Intelligence (AI)
AI is software that mimics the decision making abilities of humans and is based on continuous learning and subsequent refinement of the algorithms on which these decisions are made. Typically, it can access vast quantities of factual information and research, in real time, so as to potentially improve on the equivalent human activity.
No AI machine has reached perfection yet, but the ability to answer questions about diagnozable diseases, respond to customers’ inquiries about products, recognize handwriting, voice and face or even automated / driverless cars can give us hope for a perfect AI machine in the near future.
2. Big Data
Big Data is a term used to describe data sets that are large and usually taken from multiple sources. They cannot be processed using traditional techniques and technologies. When combined with other technologies, Big Data can make a huge difference to business and science.
Tasks, such as forecasting traffic and journey times at a particular time of day, personalizing media content, suggesting appropriate products and services or predicting financial trends, are all driven by the use of Big Data. Therefore, it is undoubted that Big Data will be one of the leading technology trends in 2018.
3. Internet of Things (IoT)
IoT stands for the "Internet of Things" whereby, each object or person is provided with a unique identifier, and all have the ability to transmit and exchange information, data over a single network without the need for direct people-to-people or people-to-computer interaction.
Although the idea of Internet of Things was introduced long time ago, it was not until recent years that IoT could draw great attention, after the development of smartphones, tablets and wireless connections. As a result, giants such as Google, Apple, Samsung and Microsoft have showed no intention to hide their ambition to enter the market, promising a fierce competition in the near future and bringing us closer to the era of IoT.
Having these technology trends in hands, you will surely never be a loser.
