Emerging Technologies for 2018

Emerging Technologies for 2018

The world is moving into an evolutionary phase with regard to technology and digitization. Some call it the era of "Digital Darwinism" where in the rate of technologies emerging throughout the globe is extremely high and rapid. With the governments supporting this digital era, the five specific digital forces are emerging throughout the globe which are Social, mobile, Analytical, Cloud and the Internet of things. These forces are creating better and valuable sources of information in both business and social domains through data interpretations and cost-effective methodologies. Taking into consideration India, the value of digital has grown manifold as per the study of world Economic Forum. They have proposed that only four digital initiatives can potentially unlock 1.2 Trillion US dollars for the Indian industry and the society in the forth coming decade which is almost 40 percent of the total national GDP in 2015.
Following this wake of technology and digitization, a number specific technologies have risen to be dominate the global industry. The notable of these few include the following.


The rate at which E-economy has emerged in the banking sector is astounding. Only in a few years, all the banks in the Indian market have e-wallets, digital banking, mobile banking, virtual cards,etc. This has happened with the consumer's rise in exposure towards such means and mediums of transactions. Even private non-banking agencies are rapidly making their move into the E-banking and E-payments market making it a tough competition and the consequential growth in the technology.

Block-chain Technology

Block-chain Technology

Another one in the domain of digital banking and finance is the name Block-chain. The related venture investment in block chain technology has crossed billions of US dollars in the previous years and proves the economic and social impacts that blockchain can have on the world and have an extensive and widespread effect on the market and governments and how they deal with finance. Banks all over th globe are aiming to use block chain technology for various financial operations such as money transfer, record keeping, back end functions and more.


Artificial Intelligence

Probably the hottest trend in the current digital industry, Artificial Intelligence claims to provide resources and potential which cannot even be imagined in the current times. The amount of resources and time that the top organizations like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Tesla, etc. are putting in AI is a proof of its potential which is yet to be unlocked to even a small proportion. An amalgam of AI, machine learning, Deep learning, and Data sciences is here to change the entire digital industry.

Emerging Technology

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

The explosion of Internet was the last known most widespread technology that reached the masses like nothing else ever did. Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality has the potential to become the next such explosion owing to its commonality of user base and application virtually everywhere ranging from social platforms to top notch and highly sophisticated industrial applications. Augmented and Virtual Reality aims to change the face of communication, interaction, user experience, and entertainment forever and extensively.

Emerging Technology

Nano-sensors and Nano-Internet of Things

Internet of things has already become rampant in the entire industry and aims to cover the globe within the next few years. It is estimated that by 2020, more than 30billion devices will be connected across the globe. This paves the way for Nano internet of things which can possibly make this concept of connecting devices more complicated and sophisticated still. With smaller nano-sensors attached to human bodies, devices, structures and day to day objects, device to device interaction and human machine interaction will become increasingly sophisticated an widespread.

Emerging Technology

Robotics and automation

These two terms have become synonyms with technology in the past two years at an astounding rate and their culmination cannot be seen any soon. From automated testing scripts for softwares to driverless cars, Robotics and Automation is spreading out its arms far and wide, reaching out to every nook and corner of the industry. Robotics and automation currently spearheads the digital industry and aims to change it forever as we see it.

Intelligent apps

A collusion between big data and application development seems like match made in heaven an it is really happening out there. The combination results in intelligent apps which have the capability to perform much more complicated operations by combining the customer, product and operational insights. Several organizations endeavors such as Cisco's procurement of AppDynamics IPO notifies that the future is fraught with Intelligent applications.

Digital Twins

Currently named in the top ten technology trends of 2017 in the Gartner list, digital twin aims to couple with Internet of things to provide never before known capabilities to the industry and the consumers as well. In simple terms, digital twin is a simulation model of any process, product or service which allows a better analysis of data, monitoring of information and preparation of the future with reduction in downtime.

Low power wide area network

With the rise of networking and communication, low power wide area networks are the future of networking technology. Created both for machine to machine and machine to human LPWAN can tackle networking problems while operating at much lower costs and with much greater power efficiency than the current mobile networks do.

Adaptive Security

Nobody can deny the increasing importance of security infrastructures related to both network and systems. In such scenario's Adaptive security is playing a major role in revolutionizing the entire System Security domain using very sophisticated algorithms. In essence, Adaptive Security works on behavioral patterns of the risk causing agents rather simple files and programs. This allows the system to adapt and response to an environment which is constantly changing.
