Gartner, an information technology research company. It was revealed the prediction of technology that will be the trend in 2017. You know, Artificial Intelligence aka artificial intelligence (AI) and Advance Machine Learning topped the top.
As you can see, technology giants like Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Apple and Amazon are competing to develop artificial intelligence based algorithms. The most recent example is a Google Pixel phone with Google Assistant. The following 10 industry technology trends 2017 according to Gartner’s prediction:
1. AI and Advanced Machine Learning
Machine Learning is an advanced branch of Artificial Intelligence (AI) which includes more sophisticated systems. Such as being able to understand, study, predict, adapt, and potentially operate independently. Machine learning is will be change future behavior, which leads to the creation of devices and programs more intelligent. Gartner predicts that will use AI and Machine Learning more is on robots, independent vehicles, consumer electronics, virtual personal assistants, and smart advisors.
2. Intelligent Apps
An example of Intelligent Apps is a virtual assistant that will make our lives easier. Even Gartner estimates that future assistants have the potential to change the state of the office with the ability to help with daily tasks. Within the next 10 years, every application and service will use several types of AI.
3. Intelligent Things
Generally will be applied to devices like drones, standalone vehicles, and smart appliances. Like Intelligent Apps, Intelligent Things also relies on AI and Advanced Machine Learning. Various intelligent devices and equipment will continue to emerge and increasingly popular.
4. VR and AR
Today, VR and AR technology is just born. So naturally, if experience using the technology of Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality is not maximal yet. Gartner estimates that both technologies will continue to grow and peak in 2021.
5. Digital Twin
Digital Twin refers to software that is more dynamic, both from the physical and the system. Digital Twin will use the data provided by the sensor to understand the situation, respond to changes, and add value. Humans will use it for service planning and repair equipment for plant operations. They will replace a combination of skilled human resources.
Blockchain is a great book. It shows all the transaction data that ever happened inside the Bitcoin network. In the future it will combine a variety of processes, including middleware, database, security, AI, monetary management, and identity.
7. Conversational System
In the future, Chatbot will be increasingly adopted. Chatbot itself is a computer program designed to simulate an interactive conversation or communication to the user (human) through text, sound, and visual form.
8. Mesh App and Service Architecture
The application team should create a new, modern architecture to deliver agile, flexible, and dynamic application performance for a better user experience. In this case, the Mesh App and Service Architecture exists to balance the demand and stability of the service.
9. Digital Technology Platforms
Digital Technology Platforms is like a building foundation in the digital business. Each organization must have five main focuses, namely information systems, customer experience, analytics and intelligence, IoT, and business ecosystems. Companies need to identify how industry platforms will evolve and plan ways to grow their platforms to meet the challenges of digital business.
10. Adaptive Security Architecture
The development of IoT of course ust be balanced with new security systems. Security in the IoT environment is a big challenge. The security team must create solutions because all things will relate to each other.
That’s 10 industry technology trends 2017 according to Gartner’s prediction that brings a strategic impact for the company. What do you think is the coolest number?
