In late 1965 co-founder of Intel Gordon Moore prediction set a pace for digital revolution. Moore’s law states that the processor speed would radically increase while decreasing the relative cost.
This perception, along with the hard work of scientists and engineers become a reason for the rapid growth of technology. This industry has quickly become a fundamental part of modern world.
Three big companies (Apple, Intel, and Microsoft) together made up many achievements in 2017. In the coming year, the investment in technology could raise up to $97 billion. And worldwide, people will spend about $3.5 trillion on digitals devices by 2020.
These are some technology trends of 2018 you should know:
In AR sounds, graphic and pictures are superimposed with the natural world which enhances the user experience. In 2016 Pokémon Go was released. It is the one the first application in which augmented reality was implemented. As the software and hardware continue to improve in 2018, we will see developers developing more application with AR.
Many of the world biggest brands investing their money of augmented reality so they can give their customers enhance the experience of both inside and outside of the store.
Blockchain originally developed for the online transaction of crypt currency such as bitcoin. Blockchain can be used for many applications such as tracking ownership, the source of digital assets, casting vote but it was brought into vogue because of bitcoin.
The blockchain is a way of securely managing and accessing information. Its main idea of blockchain is decentralization, which distributes the risk and power equally among all the users of the network.
Blockchain engineers are finding successful courses for making faster and more efficient businesses, replacing the specialists and operators with little gets that naturally check the exercises without hitting the change to make better fit new conditions with information security. Associations, for example, Game flip, Flip coin, and Sparkle coins are driving blockchain selection by enabling shoppers to buy this present reality item from online stores using related to secret computer codes money.
Automation is the use of control systems to control machinery, processes in factories, aircraft, ships, vehicles and other applications to reduce the human labor. Soon artificial intelligence and automation will be seen everywhere in the world in the coming years.
Machine automation has potential to fundamentally replace the demand of shift workers and can displace millions of jobs. The question arose that” where will everyone go when the machine does work for us? ”. This question will be an important consideration for getting our intention in 2018.
Virtual reality term is defined as a 3-dimensional computer-generated environment in which a user can experience a graphical environment seems like a real world. A person that becomes part of the Virtual world is able to manipulate and perform different actions there. In of the biggest obstacle for VR is to create enough content to draw lots of attention from the users. As the industry has learned, onboarding hard-core gamers will not be enough to sustain a long-term effort. Beyond gaming, there are numbers of VR startup that were highly appealing for the enterprises.
By 2016 there were about 230 companies that were manufacturing VR products. In 2017 Sony launched showed that they were developing a corresponding location tracking technology VIVE for PlayStations VR. VR submarine simulator and ship bridge simulator are being used by U.S navy for training purposes.
2018 will be the year in which e-commerce takes the retail once and for all. According to the report of online retail in 2017, it is stated that more than 80% of U.S adults purchased something from the Amazon this past year.
