If you are aspiring to start a new business, then you can try one among these! Those who are already into the business field; you can make use these new trends to improve your business!
Augmented Reality and Virtual reality
2016 has already witnessed some significant steps towards Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). Pokémon Go which is an Augmented Reality game is the best example. It was greatly welcomed by the people with millions downloading it. We can expect the AR and VR versions of a lot of applications in the near future. So, this is an area with plenty of opportunities.
Automation is slowly marking its presence in every field. Even those tasks which could be done exclusively by humans have started to get automated. Automation may increase the productivity exponentially in some areas. Some jobs may disappear altogether! So, it would be wise to expect a leap in this area in 2017 and get prepared for it.
Smart home technology
Internet of Things (IoT) and smart home technology is not something new to the world. There has been immense advancement in this area in the recent years. But this technology has not become so widespread due to competition or the lack of unification in this field. Giants like Amazon, Google and Apple, have started to get involved in this area and hence we should expect some major breakthrough!
A better accessible Big data
Big data is not a new concept. Plans have been made to make it more accessible so that it can help in better medical treatments, better marketing solutions, etc. The focus would be on the qualitative side rather than its quantitative aspects. Expect advances in the Big Data sector! More qualitative and sensible bits of data would become easily accessible in the coming months.
Integration of digital and physical features
With the advent of smartphones, technology has become inseparable from our lives. Smart phones give us easy access to a multitude of information. Online stores which let us purchase products from a faraway physical location are already popular among people. Physical and digital integration is the next level. Expect some revolutionary changes!
Machine learning is already an integral part of Google’s search engine algorithm. In the near future, we should foresee machine learning to extend its reach to a wide range of applications thereby greatly enhancing their user experience.
Anything at your reach!
We are already used to getting anything at our reach with the help of smartphone apps. Food, travel, accommodation, everything has been made so easily available by numerous apps. We should expect these apps to penetrate into even deeper areas in the future so that there is literally nothing beyond our reach.
These predictions do not mean that these are the only directions in which technology is heading this year. Surprises can come from anywhere at any time! Be prepared!
