Top Ten Technology Trends of 2016

Technology has influenced every single living individual so far, and there is no going back as we could not imagine our lives without all the gadgets and the Internet connection anymore. What particular high-tech trends only from 2016 stand out can be checked out below.

  1. 3D Printing

The 2009 launch of the 3D printer created new demand for materials since the printer uses glass, conductive ink, carbon fibre, biological materials, etc., and its use in different industries is still growing.

  1. The Device Mesh

Forget your smartphones and PCs as the special device mesh is a highly sophisticated tool that represents an endpoints set wherefrom all apps can be accessed enabling a profound reach of information and connection. It includes wearable, electronic household devices, smartphones, etc.

  1. Advanced Machine Learning (AML)

AML is a special trend that makes machines not only automatic but also more intuitive as they are able to understand different concepts and “learn” them.

  1. Ambient User Experience

This trend represents a unique blend of the virtual, electronic, and real-life environment, which sets it apart from usual mobile apps by offering continuity beyond the device mesh and space.

  1. Autonomous Agents and Things

The use of robots and software assistants became more sophisticated and meanwhile apps in the form of agents became available that the user can speak to.

  1. Information of Everything

The digital mesh is an information producer and transmitter including context-based and sensory data enabling linkage of data from different sources in a comprehensive way.

  1. Advanced System Architecture

These systems are built on GPUs and FPGAs and work similar to a human brain recognizing patterns and they are suited for deep learning processes. The system can be transmitted to small endpoints of the Internet of Things (IoT) like cars, homes, watches, etc.

  1. Adaptive Security Architecture

It represents a highly sophisticated security measure for both, hardware and software, from the hacker community which also grew stronger over the past few years. An adaptive system will enable a smarter approach to detecting threats and unwanted intruders.

  1. IoT Architecture and Platforms

The device mesh is backed up by the IoT platform and all its technologies which communicate, manage, control, and protect its endpoints. Data are being collected behind the scenes to make the Internet of Things real-like. These platforms complement the ambient user experience and the device mesh.

  1. Mesh App and Service Architecture

These technologies account for the delivery of services to device mesh and they serve as a collection point for all the data sources, services, apps, and devices which are being transmitted to different endpoints whereby they can intervene with one another which results in a greater digital experience.
