2016 Technology Trends you need to know about
January 19, 2016 by Keith De Alwis in Blog entries
As one of the leading app development agencies in england we often get asked our opinions on what the main technology trends are, as well as what the hottest areas of tech are. We spoken with many vendors, manufactures, agencies and mobile operators at CES 2016 and concluded what we think are the top 10 2016 technology trends.

1. Information of other nutritional foods (IOE)

With tech moving towards interconnectivity where all things in your household will be attached to the internet, the main challenge to the industry will be how and who are able to harness the massive quantity of data that will become available. Which has a predicted 25 billion devices by 2020, data will likely be generated and mined across almost every topic and niche out there. The real trick will be who can harness this data and the way it can be turned into meaningful insight.

2. Autonomous agents

Just about the most exciting start ups we saw at CES was the Autonomous one man drone which won Better off Beat product of 2016. The rather un-catchy named EHANG 184 carries a top speed of 60 MPH as well as a maximum altitude of 11,000 feet and is programmed to fly from specific GPS locations. First autonomous cars and today autonomous drones. This is an part of massive development with the ability for robots to be aware of and surpass individuals their ability to perform human tasks. The true challenge for governments and regulating authorities is usually to control the transfer of autonomous vehicles from controlled environments to uncontrolled environments (Like airspace).

3. 3D Printing materials

Another sector that is maintaining growth at pace in 3D printing. However some technologists are already calling 3D printing old hat, to be able to print car engine parts (like Tesla have begun doing) and printing rocket parts which have historically been exorbitantly expensive for create, suddenly industries are able produce material and significantly lower costs. Take this technology forward ten years and we can see 3D printing extend to biological material, including food.

4. The product “Mesh”

Another key 2016 key technology trend may be the device Mesh. As devices gets smarter and more relevant, the ability to start tracking patterns from sensor arrays has become much more prevalent. These device sensors increase in number so when grouped together can begin to start out gathering data on the daily patterns.The results will ultimately lead to sustained insights about our daily patterns.

5. Advanced Machine Learning (AML)

With trends such as the device mesh, technologies can collect meaningful patterns of knowledge but with advanced Machine understanding the technology will not only have the ability to collect the data, but study on in as well. Were really seeing very early advanced Artificial intelligence (AI) where most of the initial analysis typically that will require a human, will be replicated by technology thereby elevating the analysis in the process. Anyone else have SkyNet jump to mind?

6. Personal Home computer to personal home helper

Mark Zuckerburg recently posted one among his new resolutions ended up being to personally research and code a private home helper that may do everything from set the temperature of his house to get his groceries. He cited Jarvis from Batman as the ultimate in home helper and from that which you saw at CES there are several companies far down the road in this field of tech as well as be a key 2016 technology trend.

Another key 2016 key technology trend will be the device Mesh. As devices gets smarter plus more relevant, the ability to start tracking patterns from sensor arrays is now much more prevalent

7. Smart Security also called Adaptive Security Architecture

One seriously hot section of tech right now is the adaptive security architecture. Ask any FTSE 100 CTO what his/her biggest concern of 2016 was and i also guarantee they will say security. By incorporating massive companies being hit in 2015 and this trend likely to continue plenty of R&D has gone into smart security where predictive modelling allows systems & infrastructure to detect and launch automated counter measures on attacks. Not only will they defend themselves from attacks Like DoS (Denial and services information) they will attack back.

8. Mesh Apps

This is one we have seen coming for some time. Rather than building apps to pay for all parts of a given product/service, Mesh Apps are plugging together several technologies in to a single app. This process can massively increase deliver times and also making scalability much easier to manage.

9. Ambiant UE (Consumer experience)

The device mesh produces the foundation for a new continuous and ambient buyer experience. Immersive environments delivering augmented and virtual reality hold significant potential however are only one aspect of the experience. The ambient user experience preserves continuity across boundaries of device mesh, time and space. The experience seamlessly flows across a shifting pair of devices and interaction channels blending physical, virtual and electronic environment because the user moves in one place to another.

10. Next Generation Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality Headsets were fully force throughout CES. Modern-day virtual reality (VR) varies, but for the most part it involves a headset which has a 360-degree virtual view, operated by a gaming computer and handheld controllers that allow the wearer to change position and interact with the digital world they see.  Big players in this subject were HTC making use of their vive headset and of course the Facebook owned Oculus Rift.

However, despite so many high-end devices on the verge of launching - as well as Samsung’s more smartphone-centric Gear VR already around the market- many are predicting that low-cost virtual reality will garner essentially the most interest at this year’s CES. Options to Google Cardboard - these devices made of said material, and then for which building instructions can be downloaded free online - are going to be widespread, because the public’s growing understanding of virtual reality fuels new interest.
