6 Hot IoT Technologies To Watch For In 2019
It’s the new year, and that means there’s definitely a lot for us to look forward to, especially with technological developments. Here, we’re continually monitoring trends, especially in the construction industry, and other sectors. That said, allow us to present the 6 hot IoT technologies to watch out for in 2019.
1. Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
For the past few years, there has been a lot of developments in AR, VR, and MR. This would keep on going, and 2019 will open doors to more exciting and practical applications for industries. Back in the days, R+ was only present in video games, but times have changed. It’s now becoming a handy tool in several sectors, such as manufacturing, design, healthcare, and even space exploration. In 2019, VR will also open up better applications that would change how people work and collaborate with each other.
2. Machine Learning Will Improve AI Even More
Recently, there has been a lot of developments regarding artificial intelligence, and there are no signs that it’s going to stop any time soon. As a matter of fact, experts profoundly believe that in 2019, machine learning, as well as AI will be integrated into the business platform resulting in better and smarter business innovations.
In the AI space, China is one of the growing leaders regarding development and applications, that it even leaves the US behind. There will be remarkable advances in machine learning and algorithm training which would lead to more advanced AI. Robotics and autonomous vehicles are the two major industries that would significantly experience these remarkable changes.
Furthermore, there will also be a convergence of machine learning and deep learning in business applications. As artificial intelligence technologies work hand in hand, it will lead to better results, especially in safety and accuracy.
To date, humans have only developed narrow artificial intelligence, and a superior AI is probably something we can look forward to a few years from now.
3. Global IoT Security Breach
Hackers — they are always lurking around. As a matter of fact, it seems like they don’t even sleep at all. That’s why cybersecurity is something that shouldn’t be ignored. Keep in mind, as you connect something to the Internet, it makes it vulnerable to attacks, and that’s why it’s essential that you do everything to ensure your data stays safe.
For the past few years, hackers have tried to breach IoT technology. Although it did work at a time, it also made experts think of ways on how to secure the information uploaded online. Manufacturers now implement a high level of security that keeps hackers at bay.
4. Quantum Computing
Quantum computing, also known as supercomputing is really new, but definitely one of the most intriguing types of technology being developed. Organizations, researches, and governments have been working on this for centuries, and they aim to be able to build a fully-functional, and fully-working computer– that would be known as a “supercomputer.”
Since quantum computers will definitely have impressive computational power, this would most likely be a part of a cloud service, instead of an on-premise machine. IBM is already presenting cloud-based computing services, which would give you an idea of what you can expect from a quantum computer.
It’s also believed that the first quantum computer will have a remarkable advantage over other computational devices.
5. Connected Vehicles
The advances happening in the world of technology are transforming the industry for the better– it changes how transport is used. Vehicles can now be powered with electricity, and this increases the connectivity capabilities as cars can now effectively communicate with everything around them. This includes road signs, road flares, construction cones, and other traffic indicators.
4G, and eventually 5G networks will offer better speed communication, that would facilitate better control over these vehicles. To ensure it would run security measures smoothly should also be improved.
6. Smart Communities
As smart cities continue to evolve steadily, data streaming from thousands of IoT devices are also being digitally analyzed and utilized to improve the quality of life for the inhabitants. This has been made possible due to constant monitoring and enhancing for everything, including air quality, better traffic management systems, and so on. The success of smart cities would lead to a more productive environment later on.
