The top ICT innovations for 2019
What are the hottest, newest technological innovations in the world of tech in 2019… and beyond? Here are 5 recent top ICT innovations.
1. Artificial Intelligence (AI)
AI continues to be a trend to watch because its effect on how we live is still in the early stages. Many tech experts believe AI will really ‘come of age’ within the next few years. AI is a hot topic because of potential job loss. However, automation is creating jobs as well as eliminating them, especially in the field of AI.
2. Internet of Things (IoT)
Many devices are now built with WiFi connectivity, meaning they can be connected to the Internet. The Internet of Things has already enabled home appliances, cars and much more to be connected to and exchange data over the Internet. We can switch on the heating at home remotely from the office at the touch of a button or order a cab through an app on our phone. This kind of thing is set to increase in the future.
3. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)
Advances in AR and VR continue to be at the forefront of attention with some new practical applications for industries. It is no longer just found in video gaming, which is where it started but has become useful tool in industries such as engineering design, manufacturing, healthcare, space exploration and so on.
4. Quantum Computing (Supercomputing)
The race toward building the first fully-functional, fully-working quantum computer (supercomputer) is on. The first quantum computer is going to have a great advantage over the others. For this reason, in the near future, the competence to achieve supercomputer supremacy will intensify.
5G networks will improve our ability to move, manipulate, and analyse data across wireless platforms. The development and deployment of 5G is going to enable business impact at a very high level.
