Strate­gic tech­nol­ogy trends for 2019

The smart rev­o­lu­tion will con­tinue to change the way we live and work

Aug­mented an­a­lyt­ics fo­cuses on a spe­cific area of aug­mented in­tel­li­gence, us­ing ma­chine learn­ing to trans­form how an­a­lyt­ics con­tent is de­vel­oped, con­sumed and shared. Aug­mented an­a­lyt­ics ca­pa­bil­i­ties will ad­vance rapidly to main­stream adop­tion, as a key fea­ture of data man­age­ment, process min­ing and data science plat­forms.

A dig­i­tal twin refers to the dig­i­tal rep­re­sen­ta­tion of a real-world en­tity or sys­tem. By 2020, Gart­ner es­ti­mates there will be more than 20 bil­lion sen­sors and end­points, with dig­i­tal twins ex­ist­ing for po­ten­tially bil­lions of things. Or­gan­i­sa­tions will im­ple­ment dig­i­tal twins and these will im­prove their abil­ity to col­lect and vi­su­alise the right data.

Con­ver­sa­tional plat­forms are chang­ing the way in which peo­ple in­ter­act with the dig­i­tal world. Vir­tual re­al­ity (VR), aug­mented re­al­ity (AR), and mixed re­al­ity (MR) are chang­ing the way in which peo­ple per­ceive the dig­i­tal world. This com­bined shift in per­cep­tion and in­ter­ac­tion mod­els will lead to the fu­ture im­mer­sive user ex­pe­ri­ence.

A smart space is a phys­i­cal or dig­i­tal en­vi­ron­ment in which hu­mans and tech­nol­o­gyen­abled sys­tems in­ter­act in in­creas­ingly open, con­nected and in­tel­li­gent ecosys­tems. Mul­ti­ple el­e­ments will come to­gether in a smart space to cre­ate a more im­mer­sive, in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ence for a tar­get set of peo­ple and in­dus­try.

Au­ton­o­mous tech­nol­ogy such as ro­bots, drones and au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles, use AI to do func­tions pre­vi­ously per­formed by hu­mans. Their de­ci­sions will go be­yond the au­to­ma­tion pro­vided by pro­gram­ming mod­els and will ex­ploit AI to de­liver ad­vanced be­hav­iours that in­ter­act with their sur­round­ings.
