Researchers expect that emerging technology - such as Kindred technology and Vicarious – will see artificial intelligence move from homes into factories. Businesses will turn to machines with automated learning abilities because they can complete tasks more efficiently than their human counterparts. (Better not watch any of those Terminator films, eh.)
Business leaders will use AI to change their business models entirely. By developing artificial intelligence that collaborates with humans, this emerging technology has the potential to become a transformational tool that shapes the very nature of what an organisation does.
Businesses will turn to innovations in artificial intelligence to provide a better customer experience. For example new chatbots are able to give more human responses and use more natural language. These chatbots understand the context, not just the content of a conversation and make pro-active suggestions, rather than just answer a question. Organisations can use AI such as this to identify a hot topic among clients and then develop new products to meet this need.
Internet of Things
Our homes are getting more intelligent and personalised all the time thanks to the latest technology trends, like smart bulbs, smart thermostats, smart security and smart speakers. But the Internet of Things (IoT) takes it one step further allowing devices to “talk” to each other and share data. Analysts predict that by 2025, the Internet of Things market will include over 75 billion devices. As more everyday tasks become automated, you’ll be able to leave the machines to get on with your chores while you’re busy enjoying yourself. That certainly sounds good to us!
Virtual Reality (VR) allows you to interact with a simulated computer environment that looks life-like. Using electronic equipment - such as a headset with a screen or gloves with sensors - you can explore a new 3-D world from the comfort of the office or even your own home. Thanks to technological advances, VR is quickly growing far beyond its roots in gaming, with huge potential for a wide range of industries. Let’s look at some examples.
First we had 3G technology which led to the rise of the smartphone. Next came 4G which made browsing on our devices much faster and allowed us to do things like watch YouTube videos on the go. Now the fifth generation of cellular network technology is being rolled out around the globe.
5G is the latest generation of wireless mobile technology. Its unprecedented speed, responsiveness and ability to handle thousands of connected devices in a small area means it’s a hot topic in discussions about emerging tech trends. There are some big predictions about how it will change the way people live and work so let’s look at this year’s trends for 5G:
