This year has been another of technological progress which continues to transform the way we live, work and communicate.
Internet of Things
The internet of things can be found in almost any industry now. Everything is becoming “smart.” Whether you are at home, in the office, in your car or shopping, there’s a big chance you’re interacting with smart technology.
Artificial intelligence continues to be at the forefront of tech discussions and development. It’s likely that we could see a major AI breakthrough in 2018 that could change how businesses evolve and interact with customers.
Machine learning has been entering all technologies. Apple also launched machine learning for iOS apps. It is being used across all platforms to make life and software more advanced and intelligent. It will take over repetitive and time-consuming tasks. It makes better drivers, better doctors and better educated students.
Blockchain, which is the distributed ledger used for cryptocurrency, is making waves in many industries, including payments, contracts, cloud storage, real estate and brokerage. It is set to do even more in 2018 as more industries start to recognise the benefits.
Cyber Security, or a lack thereof, shaped 2017. From “WannaCry” to the massive Equifax breach, the year has been consumed by negative news about companies failing consumers. As Facebook and Google testify at open congressional hearings to close out the year, the public conversation will move to privacy and a renewed focus on its importance.
