Technology as we knew it even 10 years ago is evolving much differently than any of us would have imagined. Our smart phones have more computing power than many of the devices we owned when we were younger.
While computers themselves don’t look at that different from they did a few years ago, they are becoming more powerful taking on more of the features we love in our smart phones. Everything is changing. The Super Computers to tomorrow will be using Quantum processors. The power of those devices are something the original computer developers could have only dreamed of. And no one ever saw The Cloud coming.
If you would like a glimpse of the future of tech, each year Gartner produces one of the most comprehensive lists of the trends that entrepreneurs and business executives should be paying attention to. Here’s what’s on tap for 2019.
- Autonomous things
Gartner believes that by the year 2021, 10% of new vehicles will have autonomous driving capabilities, up from 1% in 2017. Major automobile manufacturers are all predicting they will reach level four autonomous driving by 2021. “Level four autonomy basically means the car is driving itself.”
- 2. Augmented analytics
The prediction is that through 2020, the number of citizen data scientists will grow five times faster than the number of expert data scientists, he noted. “We are moving towards augmented analytics where AI will assist a variety of things.”3. AI-driven development
Gartner expects that by 2022, at least 40% of new application development projects will have artificial intelligence co-developers on their teams.
4. Digital twin
The research firm describes the digital twin as a digital representation of a physical object. By 2021,half of large industrial companies will use digital twins, giving 10% improvement and effectiveness. “Digital twins are going to be a big deal.”
5. Empowered edge
Storage, computing and advanced AI and analytics capabilities will expand capabilities of edge devices through 2028, reveals Gartner.
6. Immersive experience
Number six on Gartner’s strategic technology trends list is the immersive experience. Burke stated that 70% of enterprises will be experimenting with immersive technologies for consumer and enterprise use by 2022. However, only 25% will have been deployed to production.
According to Gartner, blockchain will create $3.1 trillion in business value by 2030.
8. Privacy and ethics
By 2021, organisations that bought compliance risk and are caught lacking in privacy protection will pay 100% more in compliance costs than best-practice-adhering competitors.
9. Smart spaces
Gartner defines smart spaces as physical or digital environments populated by humans and enabled by technology, which are increasingly connected, intelligent and autonomous.
10. Quantum computing
By 2023, Gartner predicts 20% of organisations will be budgeting for quantum computing projects compared to less than 1% today.
