Technology is changing month by month, weeks by weeks and days by days. In a year there is almost a revolution in the technologies as compared to previous years. With them changing aspects, technology is getting exponentially faster, smarter, more impressive and intuitive. With the changes, our lifestyles also change. By the year 2106, we were almost surrounded by virtual realities with automated robots, professional robot player, etc. This year has brought and will bring a lot more automation. So let us see have a look at top 10 technological trends of 2017.


1. Artificial Intelligence and Artificial Machine Learning:

Automation of the systems is nothing new. Our experience with automated systems primarily comes from the automated customer services when we get help on just a call. But 2017, has brought along much more with more advancement. Artificial Intelligence and Artificial Machine Learning os one of the biggest trends right now. All the major development companies including Google, Apple or Salesforce are moving forward with more than 100 startups related to AI and Machine learning. These systems are able to perform tasks like visual perception, decision-making of machines, translations, speech recognition and much more.

2. Internet of Thing or IOT:

Theoretically, Internet of Things is supposed to connect all our devices together, making then work smartly and harmoniously. A report through outlook on the future of Internet of things highlights that IOT devices connected to the Interned will be more than triple by 2020, i.e. 10 billion to 30 billion. So IOT will really be the scenario changing the concept that will connect everything that connects. On the broader scale, IOT can be applied to even things like transportation network building smart cities which will obviously help to improve efficiency and performance of energy in the environment.

3. Virtual and Augmented Reality:

The concept of Virtual Reality got a big hit in the year 2015. Augmented reality can be referred as the technology which allows navigation services like maps to direct you to a specific aisle that you were looking for. Another example of search engines allows expanding an object or thing based on the camera pointing a specific picture. In future, the virtual reality os going to progress more in the way we interact with automated systems. Rooms and spaces are going to become more active with a connection to work humorously with the immersive virtual world.

4. Digital Twin

A digital twin is a dynamic software model of a physical thing that relies on senses data to understand its state, respond to changes and improve its operability. A digital twin has the capability to make use of 3-dimensional modelling to create a digital companion for physical assets around us. There are many other applications of this concept that will flourish in upcoming days. It is being estimated that within 5 years in the future, hundreds of millions of things will be represented by digital twins. This concept will serve as that critical connection between the data and the information contained in the digital world about the physical things around us.

5. BlockChain:

Blockchain and distributive ledger concepts are flourishing because they have the potential to transform industry operating models. It is being suggested that blockchain will be the leading software platform for all the digital assets in the future. Thereby serving a new technology based financial system. Bitcoin was the very first implementation of a digital asset and is the only blockchain protocol in widespread use. The blockchain system has allowed users to transact directly without any third party intermediary much safely and securely.

6. More Smart and Intelligent Applications:

Intelligent apps like VPA’s are able to perform some of a human assistant which allows works much more easier and smarter. Over the next 10 years, the world is on a very different level with intelligent apps to increase the efficiency and productivity. Other intelligent apps like virtual customer assistant (known as VCA’s) are more specialised for tasks such as sales automation and customer service support. The nature and structure of any workplace will be much smarter and well planned with these applications.

7. Conversational Systems:

Conversational systems allow people to conduct processes, transaction and retrieve information just by speaking to the computer. Based on the integration of speech recognition, human-computer dialogue interaction and natural language processing, the conversational systems are becoming an important component of solutions such as virtual assistant and Internet of things. The conversational systems are gaining more progress as it saves money and time and improves accessibility in daily usage.

8. Mesh App:

In this concept, the mobile applications, desktop apps, web apps and IOT apps are linked to a broad mesh of back-end services to create what user see as a working application. The service architecture encapsulates services at multiple levels. The mesh apps are serving a completely new way to organise, plan and communicate with peers for any kind of group activity. The problem of massive mail chains and group texts will become much more organised and easy.

9. Digital Technology Platforms:

For any digital system, the digital technology platform is the basic building block for any digital business. The digital platforms are allowed to generate more revenues, reduce the cost and accelerates the products to the target market. This makes the organisations flourish much faster, better and cheaper.


10. Adaptive Security Architecture:

The adaptive security architecture refers to provide continuous and visible monitoring. In the automated computing environment enterprises are vulnerable to sophisticated cyber attacks. Adaptive security addresses these challenges without relying on traditional preventive measures and blocking. With the advancement in computing technology, the adaptive security architecture is becoming a necessity.
