Mystery is frequently associated with anticipating the “following enormous thing” – however with CES only seven days away, what’s to come is currently. The yearly global public exhibition, and other industry occasions tailing in a steady progression – including ITExpo, Gitex, Mobile World Congress and Techspo – implies there will be no deficiency of item declarations, innovation unveilings, and announcements about the tech without bounds.
Be that as it may, truly for each hit item or pattern in years past -, for example, the DVD player, iPhone or gushing media – there have been a lot of misses. As of late, 3D made a rebound of sorts, and it was proclaimed as the eventual fate of motion pictures and TVs. However couple of watchers are wearing the bulky glasses today. Who recollects DivX or the Zune? Also, whatever happened to WiMAX?
To foresee the future, one must consider what is drifting now, as well as contemplate what is absent. 3D didn’t take off in 2012 for similar reasons that it was an oddity in the 1950s, again the 1960s, and even in the 1980s.
Innovation that really is imaginative doesn’t hope to tackle an issue that isn’t there. The following huge thing – or things – will address the requests of buyers and the necessities of organizations, and improve life. Tech development could come in a wide range of structures. It is still doubtful that the machines will rise up against the human masters in 2018, but it is likely that artificial intelligence will continue to get smarter and possibly take on new roles.
“Humans will feed the machines,” said Josh Crandall, principal analyst at Netpop Research.
“There’s no stopping artificial intelligence and machine learning,” he told TechNewsWorld.
“Machine learning and artificial intelligence will penetrate further into our lives and impact a lot of the processes that are currently manual,” said Greg Sterling, vice president of strategy and insights at the Local Search Association.
“This will be especially true in online marketing and digital media,” he told TechNewsWorld.
However, hype may outpace reality in terms of what exactly computers can do, and many of AI’s advances may be evident only behind the scenes.
“AI is going to surpass robotics in the public’s eye when we discuss automation and work force policies,” suggested Purtilo.
“That is a little artificial as a distinction, since robotics has always been perceived as an AI thing, but AI’s increasing power will broaden the discussion,” he said.
“In 2018, it won’t be just entry-level workers in a fast food chain losing jobs to a burger-flipping robot,” Purtilo predicted. “It will be financial services advisors and law clerks losing jobs to deep learning algorithms.”
To get there, companies may need to rely on consumers to provide the raw data points that will be needed to improve such systems.
“It will be a frustrating year as these assistive technologies, which aren’t quite helpful yet, offer suggestions and recommendations that don’t provide the solutions we are really looking for,” said Crandall, “but don’t fret — the technologies will continue to improve and become more personalized.”
