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.
