Technology is the fastest growing sector in human history, there is no doubt about it. The pace of innovation and progress is so fast that it is almost scary. This is brought about by the nature of how Silicon Valley works. Yes, the famous ‘move fast break things’ mantra and this, while it has yielded great results, is still a questionable ideology even today.
Now the problem is that technology is everywhere and it is changing too fast everywhere. So it can be hard to keep up with the changing times. I have made a list of the top technological sectors to watch out for in the year 2019. It is going to be a significant year for these innovations and make sure you don’t lose track of it.
Artificial intelligence is the defining technology of our generation. Yeah, let that sink in. After decades of prepping for computers that can think for themselves, we have finally reached a stage where, we are there. While the technology itself is in its stage of infancy, it already has a ton of applications. This year, you will see it go everywhere. From your phones to the living room and even in your bathroom. AI will be ubiquitous.
Machine learning has had a field day ever since the thing was put into practical use. You see, it is the basic principle of how AI works. So, you can imagine, how important that technology is. You will see companies invest more in machine learning and deep learning. It’s applications will go beyond just AI into many other streams like Nvidia’s graphic rendering system.
Internet of Things
This is going to be a big year for Internet of Things. 5G is just around the corner and that brings a whole new cart of possibilities in the field of IoTs. You see, the main problem with IoT development is that it is too heavily dependent on the connection and 5G is going to bring a different ball game to the table. The speeds and low latency mean that you can deploy a vast array of IoT devices and maintain them much better during real-time.
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality
Now this is a piece of technology that me be a deceiving to look at. While it may look like we are nearly there with its development, we are not actually. We are far from it. The applications of VR is so vast that we just beginning to understand it. It may someday even replace the internet. This year will see more money going into VR. Make sure you do check on what Facebook and Oculus are doing this in this regard. They have billion dollar bet on this technology with their project.
