Global Immersive Virtual Reality Market Expanding Rapidly with Forecast 2025 and Top Players : Google, Oculus VR, Microsoft, Magic Leap, Samsung, Sony etc
What are the trending technologies of 2017?
Here I give trending technologies of 2017 and to know more about this technologies.
The 7 technological trends of 2017
Here we present the disruptive technologies that developed the most in the last 12 months and that in 2017 will reach a point of progress from which they will not be able to return.
The last twelve months caused the world shakes in political, economic … and technological.
But unlike the first two, the technology brought many good news that can be synthesized as follows: 2016 was a year in which the technological advance was so great, that in several aspects there will be no turning back.
Every day approximately 2.5 quintillones of bytes are created in the world, whose storage would require 10 million Blu-Ray discs.
It is so much information that 90% of the data in the history of humanity has been collected or created in the last two years.
Thus, with an optimism – called ” radical idealism ” – that was not seen since the Enlightenment, technologists have globalized the ideas of Silicon Valley and are making innovations that hope to greatly benefit the world’s population.
Thus, with the optimism that a girl who has access to the Internet in a country like Mexico, Bangladesh or Turkey has access to more information and education than George Bush when he was president, we wonder what is happening in the world and How can entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs and Mexican leaders take advantage?
What trends will influence the ventures of 2017 and the following years?
1) Mixed reality will reach the masses
During 2016, many of us lived the massification of augmented reality technologies (representation of the physical world augmented with digital information) and virtual reality (immersive simulation of a real environment), with video games such as Pokemon Go and devices such as Oculus Rift from Facebook .
But 2017 will be the year in which the mixed reality becomes popular in the market.
The mixed reality can be understood as the powerful combination of the best of two realities, the virtual and the augmented.
To create the mixed reality, a viewer superimposes interactive virtual elements on real objects, with such high precision, that the user creates the illusion that virtual objects are real. could be considered as the pioneer company of mixed reality, thanks to the development of a supposedly revolutionary mixed reality viewer that would be released this year.
With investments from giants such as Google, Qualcomm and Alibaba;
Magic Leap has become one of the most promising technology startups.
Microsoft is another important player in this arena, who recently announced that, in collaboration with its commercial partners, will launch in 2017 to the Windows Holo graphic market , its technology of mixed reality.
Note that Holographic is behind the innovative but expensive HoloLens device , which was launched to the developer community for $ 3 thousand USD.
2) Chatbots will flood instant messaging
We arrived in 2016 with the messaging platforms (Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, Slack) as the most popular type of applications in the world.
2017 will be the year in which chat bots will begin to replace many traditional mobile applications and become popular.
Chatbots or conversational bots are computer programs that use artificial intelligence to maintain a natural conversation with users through a messaging platform.
Chatbots can serve as assistants and provide us with daily tasks such as asking for a taxi, checking the news or booking an appointment with the doctor.
They have become more practical than apps , since they are used through messaging applications, so they do not need to be installed, and perform different activities only in text commands.
Among the most used chatbots are those of CNN, Uber and WholeFoods developed for Facebook Messenger, as well as the “SlackBot” of Slack.
The chatbots stores will have a huge expansion in their catalogs and will become serious rivals of conventional apps stores.
Microsoft, which in 2016 launched its Bot Framework, managed to attract approximately 67,000 developers and the Facebook Messenger platform already has more than 30,000 bots.
3) More presence of virtual assistants controlled by voice
The great advances in artificial intelligence technologies, automatic learning (“machine learning” in English) and voice processing have led to virtual assistants by voice are increasingly accurate, and therefore more used.
Apple’s Siri was the first virtual voice assistant to reach the masses, and by mid-2015 it already handled more than 1 billion weekly voice requests .
Then Amazon put Alexa on the market, followed by Microsoft with Cortana, and Google with Now and Assistant.
In 2017, voice-controlled virtual assistants will be further integrated into the smart home eco system through smart speakers such as Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot, and Google Home.
These will become housemates who will support us in routine tasks such as finding a recipe to prepare food, check the email, control the lights of the house, listen to reminders and other 3 thousand different skills.
In fact, Echo and Echo Dot, were the most sold products by Amazon in 2016.
Knowing that it is easier to talk than to type or click, technology giants want to bring their virtual assistants by voice to as many homes as possible, so they are opening their platforms for hardware manufacturers and app developers.
4) Autonomous taxis will circulate through the streets
In 2016, 70 thousand people traveled 1,255 million kilometers in the autopilot mode of Tesla semi-autonomous vehicles .
Google completed another year with 60 semi-autonomous vehicles rolling through the streets.
The balance was remarkable: an accident by company attributable to the vehicle and above all, a brutal amount of information collected to help improve the engineering and the global regulatory framework of this technology.
In addition, Uber began experimenting with cars in Pittsburgh and San Francisco.
2017 will be decisive for the industry, as we will see more alliances between software companies, chip manufacturers and automobiles.
The traditional brands of automobiles announced that they will market their vehicles between 2018 and 2021 .
At this exponential rate, it would be expected that fully autonomous cars arrive between 2022 and 2023, and that they would be around the world by 2025.
For that time, the autonomous cars will be circulating all the time and will allow to dispense with 80% of the cars, gaining the space they occupy by parking.
Moreover, the number of mishaps due to human car driving will remain in the past, which in 2016 reached 1.1 million deaths around the world and 31 million injured.
The main current concern of the technologists is to demonstrate that the technology is safe.
This will help make the regulation more friendly to their interests, knowing that most countries do not have regulation in this regard.
Other future debates will include the role of privacy, the risk of hacking and the significant drop in jobs such as taxi driver, trailer or bus.
5) New collaborations between human and machine
Artificial intelligence (AI) allows the best intellectual and reasoning attributes of human beings to be combined with the processing capacity of computers.
Thus, human and machine have been united through the AI to reach new levels in chess, in medical diagnosis, selection of content and choice of purchases.
Through machine learning and deep learning, artificial intelligence will be used in applications such as diagnosis and monitoring of diseases, the discovery and suggestion of medicines and treatments, and the improvement of lifestyle, diets and nutrition programs.
It is expected that telemedicine finally comes to light through applications such as consultations via teleconference, discussions between groups of doctors at a distance, transmission of photographs or online clinical analysis, medical concierge, and digital management of prescriptions.
These systems are migrating the “same solution for all conditions” philosophy to a more personalized one, as patients have different reactions.
The new solutions will be distributed via retail stores, one-click applications and palliative care clinics.
6) The fact-checking will enter social media and search engines
Social networks and news websites became the main sources of news, with side effects such as the rapid spread of false news.
As a result, the fact-checking and fact-checking sites have been strengthened.
During the intense US election day of 2016, voters had the option of using 47 active fact-checking sites to verify public statements of candidates.
Donald Trump was the champion of this item, because according to PolitiFact, 76% of his statements were false or had an incorrect handling of information.
In 2017, tools such as Snopes, Fact Check and Politi Fact will expand into social media, search engines and news aggregators.
Likewise, the technological giants will go to war against counterfeit news sites.
Google News in English already makes it easier for your readers to check the accuracy of the news .
In addition, Facebook announced that it will soon allow users to report deceptive content and will use external fact-checking sites to identify fake news on their network and label them as dubious truthfulness.
7) Most banks will start using blockchain
In 2016, 15% of the world’s largest banks began to experiment with blockchain, but 66% already have concrete plans to implement it.
Banks give special importance to the blockchain as it is a secure transaction log database shared by all nodes of a computer network.
As you register and store all network transactions, you no longer require “trusted” third parties to validate them.
“In 2017, the average person will begin to understand that blockchains are tools
for re-architecting the financial, political and social systems,” because their implementation will force banks, accountants, notaries, custodians, trustees and agents to find better value propositions that only be “trusted” transaction intermediaries.
Banks will be focusing on updating their data in real time, and reducing costs by eliminating intermediaries and accelerating electronic transactions.
Thus, areas such as consumer loans, payment to retail stores and the real-time exchange of transaction information will be the great powers of the bank.
