One can observe that this is an era of rapid technological change. The focus is on artificial intelligence and cloud-based computing, new developments in the internet of things, conversational platforms and other areas made the list.
One does expect a lot from the coming year and would like something far more challenging in terms of technology as compared to 2018. Consumers do expect much from those who are providing them with products to make their life more easy and comfortable.
1. Blockchain-Based Identity and Privacy
The blockchain is a natural mode of technological applications nowadays. Blockchain can also be made use of for shopping security, whether online or in person. The blockchain is indeed poised to take its important place at the center stage in the present day economy.
2. ‘Dueling AI’
One would like an AI that is smart. AI does attempt to create a realistic image, and another Artificial Intelligence tries to attempt to decide whether the image is real or artificial.
AIs are rather intended to be intelligent systems that can be unleashed on any problem domain. Rapid as well as independent “self-improvement” of AIs through dueling may indeed lead to breakthroughs in medicine, technology, transportation or other important areas of our lives. Several tech giants are dabbling in this area.
3. 3D Metal Printing
3D printing is a great example of how incremental innovation can indeed be revolutionary. One has had printers and parts manufacturing units, but plastic 3D printing has indeed been taken to the consumer.. Now, 3D metal printing is no doubt poised to be the next big wave in this present industry of ours.
3D metal printing is of course uniquely beneficial to toy and jewelry businesses. With a 3D printer, a massive factory is no longer needed to create beautiful pieces for small or medium-sized businesses — and that will change the competitive landscape.
While 3D printing is still a long way from being widely adopted by the everyday consumer for in-home use, metal 3D printing does bring it much closer. Most people will not be so keen on acquiring a 3D printer that can print only plastics or basic materials. But in case one can print electronic devices from home for a fraction of the cost and also save time and money on shipping, many will indeed do so once the price of the printer does make sense.
These or perhaps other innovations will undoubtedly change the way one does business and also will influence our life in several ways. Technological applications are meant to make our lives easier. Much is expected in terms of progress and contributions from technology in the coming future. One is looking forward to a challenging era next year as far as technology is concerned and 2018 has made its own contribution in this sphere as well.
Lifestyles are changing fast and people want to better their standard of living. They are keen to make use of various sophisticated technological applications which will facilitate their daily life existence.
