Latest Technology Update in 2019
By the end of 2019, 5G technology, Artificial Intelligence, and Virtual Reality will most likely change the technological dynamic by bringing a couple of massive consequential shifts in a global culture of technology. Even now, these technological advancements are producing opportunities and ventures for innovative minds who are receptive to play with it. Capital investments on projects such as startup companies managed to reach $100 billion in 2018, far beyond 2017’s $82 billion in total investments.
5G technology is capable of improving the processing speeds by increasing it over and above 10 times. This technology is also expected to bring the idea of remote surgeries in rural areas to life. Surgeries powered by Artificial Intelligence may sound too far in future to some, however, they are here to bring more accuracy in the operation theatres. My go-to telecom provider Spectrum voice is also expected to introduce 5G by the end of 2019 or early 2020.
Latest Technology Trends
Latest innovative technology trends are going to drive and bring massive change into multiple industries at fast speed all around the year. These inventions are predicted to change the shape of the technological world. Plus, in the coming future, both will be equally significant and present on the horizons of entrepreneurs and stakeholders in the business industry.
This rapid evolution of digital mesh of smart devices will soon have connected humans, almost all types of content, robotics, computing devices, and various other services – everything based on digital transformation. It comes with an alarming fact that new innovative technology leaders should also adopt the trends with the same pace to match the reality or they will be left behind to eventually be extinct.
Probably the most sought after technological launch for the year 2019, before moving on to anything else – we have to wait for 5G technology. 5G is the fundamental technology; reason being, none of the most anticipated technologies are possible to function without 5G technology. Autonomous vehicles, drones, the Internet of Things, and supercomputers are all relying on 5g technology.
Machine Learning will further develop Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Artificial Intelligence will bring more breakthroughs in the field of technology, owing to the great amount of data which new technology has been gathering to make things possible.
By 2019, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are going to be embedded in the business platform which will enable operations of the smart business. China is all set to leave the U.S. behind in the arena covered by Artificial Intelligence; it will emerge as an expert AI leader in the applications and developments.
Quantum Computing or Supercomputing Service
Quantum Computing, at the moment, is one of the most intriguing technologies upon which organizations, researchers, and governments are continuously working for decades. Quantum computing also known as Supercomputer is racing against time to become the first ever fully functional and fully operational system. IBM, however, still has and provides cloud-based quantum/supercomputing facilities. Thanks to its incredible computational power. In the future, you will see QC is going to be a cloud service rather than a machine restricted service.
Virtual Reality (VR) & Augmented Reality (AR)
Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) are going to remain the focus of attention throughout the year, thanks to their new innovative updates that are going to be more fascinating and practical for the industries and applications. All the aforementioned technologies come under R+, once present in video games, now progressing to be an integral part of industries. Industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, space, engineering designs to name a few.
Virtual Reality is predicted to help launch innovative industrial applications that will transform the way people work and team up all around the world. Augmented Reality has been growing somewhere with the support of Virtual Reality and is following the footsteps since 2018. Nevertheless, before 2019 ends, AR is going to make its mark soon.
Global Internet of Things (IoT) Security Breach
It is a known fact that hackers don’t sleep – they are always educating themselves with latest updates to comprehend and find out the loopholes for breaching their online securities. Anyone who is familiar with the cybersecurity world understands this reality. The minute you share something online, it stays in a vulnerable situation. It can be used against you if approached with a wrong intention.
You don’t always have to have a website or to be running an online business to lose something; your information shared online through social media forums is also something that can be used against you. A great deal of hacking and breaching of privacy have been taking place till the last year, 2018. Recently in the past, 2016, hackers turned to an unshielded IoT (Internet of Things) devices to disrupt the traffic and take it down from the DNS provider.
According to Gartner, it has been predicted that around 20.4 billion devices will be globally interconnected by the year 2020. It won’t be wrong to say that, with the massive connectivity across the world will give rise to the same amount of threats. Not always would situations be under control. Security won’t always cover everyone and everything – it will take time to reach to that point.
When your refrigerator, a robot, a vehicle(s), a drone, or a health tracker isn’t connected to one another and the security is not strong enough, it is likely to witness a worldwide security breach in the coming years.
After staying in the news and being the talk of the town for multiple reasons, Blockchain technology is all set to bring enterprise applications for active use. The smartest and innovative businesses in town are going to utilize Blockchain for improving their methodology of further collaborations.
Somewhere in 2019, Blockchain will introduce cryptocurrency transaction, improving financial departments. Blockchain will soon bring transparency of transactions all over the business platforms. Also, in 2019, Blockchain in expected to be an essential part of industries in the midst of business revolution.
