Five (5) Emerging Technology Trends in 2019

1. Quantum Computing

Quantum computers, also called Supercomputers refers to the next generation of computers that has impressive computational power. They excel at solving complex problems and uses a non-traditional approach to find solutions faster. With the ability to work on millions of computations at once, Quantum computing is set to transform industries such as the financial, insurance, and pharmaceutical industry.

2. Convergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Machine learning

AI and Machine learning has and continues to have a significant impact on how we live, work, and play. In 2019, both technologies will be merged and incorporated into the application development process to achieve better results. This will improve the accuracy of AI at all levels and promote new and more advanced AI.

3. Blockchain

This technology is described as a “Digital Ledger” that records transactions across a network of computers. Data can only be added but not altered or changed, and while it can be distributed it cannot be copied. Blockchain technology supports digital currencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin, among others.

4. Internet of Things (IoT)

IoT is a fast growing trend which describes the connectivity of objects/devices to the internet and to each other. With built-in WiFi and sensors, a number of objects are able to connect to each other and share data over the internet. Some of these objects include cars, watches, and home appliances (AC, oven, fridge, etc.).

5. Immersive Technologies: Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)

Due to advances in AR and VR technology, both immersive technologies are set to grow exponentially in 2019. These technologies are changing the way individuals perceive and interact with the digital world and will connect people across different geographical regions through devices such as computers, cars, consumer appliances, and wearable devices.
