Christmas giveaway and what do the digital experts predict for 2019?
We’ve had a look at some of the developments in digital technology that experts think we might see becoming more widespread next year
Chatbots: Using natural language processing (NLP) and sentiment analytics is likely to improve and if it does it could be much more widely adopted by the service industry.
This is about about all the services that could be provided without humans—fast food lines, loan processors, job recruiters!
NLP allows companies to gather insights and improve their service and an estimated 40% of large businesses have or will adopt it by the end of 2019.
Connected Clouds (Public, Private, Hybrid): going completely public cloud, private cloud, or data centre isn’t always the best option. Sometimes, companies need a mix of all or both and connected clouds are continuing to develop to meet companies’ changing needs—whether they want to cloud-source storage, networking, security, or app deployment.
GDPR: the start of a more global trend that will hold companies accountable for how they treat privacy and personal data.
Augment Reality (AR) enhances environments. Expect to see more AR use in enterprise workforce training.
Cube satellites: tiny satellites are being developed that could drastically reduce the cost of launching and using them in space for all sorts of things from running telecommunication systems or keeping space missions on track.
Digital editing tools: face swaps, lip syncing or even puppetry could be used to produce realistic videos that could have you believing something when it isn’t necessarily true – think fake news!
Information about our bodies – and everything wrong with them: has become far easier to collect, using wearable technology. It could revolutionise healthcare in 2019.
