There will not be the single trending technology in 2019 but bunch of technologies will make their presence feel in 2019.
There may be many other new technologies which can emerge in the year 2019.
Here I am listing out some of the technologies which i think will be in trend.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Artificial Intelligence is the buzz word from the last two decades in the technology space.
The AI is developed many folds in the past few years due to the powerful machine learning and deep learning algorithms.
All companies are focusing to harness the power of AI as this is the only medium to be cutting age otherwise it takes no time to become obsolete in the technology world like Nokia and Blackberry.
The power of AI is immense and companies are much more serious about it. There are tons of stories on the internet of replacing many employees with AI-based systems and making them redundant.
The blockchain is the distributed ledger system. It is the technology behind the Bitcoin or we can say behind all the crypto-currencies. Blockchain saves all the transaction between any two parties in the cryptographically secured blocks of data which are time stamped and mined through the consensus mechanism. All the blocks are linked with each other by a hash pointer which links to the previous block.
Internet of Things (IoT)
The IOT devices are connected to the internet continuously and we can detect and collect the data remotely. By the collection of data, we can monitor and analyze the data and made efficient systems and increase productivity.
There are many predictions about the total no connected devices in the world. IHS Markit projects 30.7 billion IoT devices for 2020, and Gartner expects 20.8 billion by that time (excluding smartphones, tablets, and computers). Lastly, IDC anticipates 28.1 billion (again, not counting those devices).
Cloud computing is the way of accessing the shared computing power by the companies through the Internet. This shared computing is the availability of the storage, servers, databases, software, services and many others through the internet.
In cloud computing the cloud service providers like Microsoft, Amazon, and Google provide the shared resources services to the clients and charge according to the usage. Due to the cloud, there is no need to set up a dedicated server or IT service by the company.
Big Data / Data Scientist
Just like gold mining companies, companies require experts to get the valuable insight and meaning from the huge pile of data which is being generated every second.
These experts are called data scientist or Big Data Scientists as they know the tricks and techniques to make the data meaningful and useful for the corporations so that they can improve their efficiency, productivity, conversion ratio and eventually revenues.
Augmented Reality (AR)/ Virtual Reality (VR)
In virtual reality, with the help of computer graphics, we create a real experience. The reality is shown in the virtual world.
On the other hand, augmented reality is the implementation or overlay of the virtual world to the reality.
RPA: Robot Process Automation
The automation of the repeated clerical software tasks which are performed in organizations is the simple definition of Robot Process Automation.
Robot process automation as the name defines is the automation of the processes which are repetitive in nature. For example, the simple task of filling up the form by collecting various parameters by the customer’s ID cards can be done by RPA very efficiently and effectively.
RPA is based on the AI and Machine learning in which the software records the human workflow and then adapts it to work more efficiently than a human. It automatically learns the processes in the due course of time by deep learning and machine learning algorithms.
RPA will improve the productivity, cycle time and efficiency of the processes and systems.
Autonomous Driving (Robot Cars: ROS)
The only name comes to the mind when you listen autonomous driving isand if you don’t know about the Tesla then you are living in some deserted place.
Tesla made the electric car more stylish and more performance driven than the traditional gasoline cars. Electric cars are now more advanced than traditional gasoline cars in every feature.
With the development of AI, ML, Processing powers and advanced sensors the autonomous driving has made the integration into the electric cars.
All Tesla Models has the full autonomous driving or self-driving feature. It is capable of driving on autopilot without the instruction of driver. With safety level greater than that of a human driver.
With the advent of the AI and ML, the apps got a new makeover in terms of intelligence. Now apps can take the input from the user and make changes in the app by learning from the user and improve the user experience accordingly.
Apps technology is developed to the extent that the data collection and analysis is done on the real-time bases and product offering is also done real time based on the data analyzed.
The chat Bots are the example of the intelligent apps as the user can interact with the app and feel like he/she is interacting with the human.
The cybersecurity experts act as a guard to protect the silos of data and websites from the hacking.
There is a huge demand for the cybersecurity professionals throughout the world and it will be getting increases as hackers are also becoming more technologically advanced and powerful.
The digital marketing domain is not new but I want to include this as this domain will be increasing in the coming years and have the potential to employ and impact the major part of the human civilization.
Digital marketing is the use of internet tools and platforms to interact with prospective customers and pursue them to buy product and services.
As more and more business and people are going online there is a need for the digital marketing experts in the technology space.
