2016 Technology Trends that you need to know about
January 19, 2016 by Keith De Alwis in Blog entries
As among the leading app development agencies in england we often get asked our opinions on what the main technology trends are, along with what the hottest areas of tech are. We spoken with many vendors, manufactures, service providers and mobile operators at CES 2016 and concluded what we think are the top 10 2016 technology trends.
1. Information of all things (IOE)
With tech moving towards interconnectivity where everything in your household will be coupled to the internet, the main challenge to the industry will be how and who can harness the massive quantity of data that will become available. Having a predicted 25 billion devices by 2020, data is going to be generated and mined across nearly every topic and niche around. The real trick is going to be who can harness this data and how it can be turned into meaningful insight.
2. Autonomous agents
The most exciting start ups we got at CES was the Autonomous one man drone which won Best off Beat product of 2016. The rather un-catchy named EHANG 184 includes a top speed of 60 MPH plus a maximum altitude of 11,000 feet and could be programmed to fly from specific GPS locations. First autonomous cars and now autonomous drones. This is an area of massive development with the ability for robots to know and surpass individuals their ability to perform human tasks. The actual challenge for governments and regulating authorities would be to control the change in 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 started doing) and printing rocket parts which may have historically been exorbitantly expensive to create, suddenly industries are able produce material and significantly lower costs. Take fractional laser treatments forward ten years and that we can see 3D printing include biological material, including food.
4. The product “Mesh”
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 starting to become much more prevalent. These device sensors increase in number 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 much like the device mesh, technologies can collect meaningful patterns of information but with advanced Machine learning the technology will not only have the ability to collect the data, but study from in as well. Were really seeing very early advanced Artificial intelligence (AI) where much of the initial analysis typically that needs a human, will be replicated by technology thereby elevating your analysis in the process. Anyone else have SkyNet jump under consideration?
6. Personal Desktop computer to personal home helper
Mark Zuckerburg recently posted among his new resolutions ended up being to personally research and code your own home helper that could do everything from set the temperature of his house to acquire his groceries. He cited Jarvis from Iron Man as the ultimate in home helper and from what we saw at CES there are lots of companies far in the future in this field of tech and will also be a key 2016 technology trend.

7. Smart Security often known as Adaptive Security Architecture
One seriously hot division of tech right now will be the adaptive security architecture. Ask any FTSE 100 CTO what his/her biggest concern of 2016 was and I guarantee they will say security. With some massive companies being hit in 2015 and also this trend likely to continue a lot of R&D has gone into smart security where predictive modelling will allow systems & infrastructure to identify 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 really is one we have seen coming for a time. Rather than building apps to pay for all parts of a given product/service, Mesh Apps are plugging together several technologies in a single app. This strategy can massively increase deliver times and also making scalability much easier to manage.
9. Ambiant UE (Buyer)
The device mesh produces the foundation for a new continuous and ambient buyer experience. Immersive environments delivering augmented and virtual reality hold significant potential but are only one aspect of the experience. The ambient buyer experience preserves continuity across boundaries of device mesh, space and time. The experience seamlessly flows across a shifting pair of devices and interaction channels blending physical, virtual and electronic environment as the user moves derived from one of place to another.
10. Next Generation Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality Headsets were completely force throughout CES. Modern day virtual reality (VR) varies, and also for the most part it involves a headset having a 360-degree virtual view, powered by a gaming computer and handheld controllers that allow the wearer to relocate and interact with a digital world they see. Big players of this type were HTC using 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 about the market- many are predicting that low-cost virtual reality will garner one of the most interest at this year’s CES. Alternatives to Google Cardboard - the device made of said material, as well as for which building instructions obtainable free online - will be widespread, because the public’s growing understanding of virtual reality fuels new interest.
