London (January 4, 2018) - from networking to cloud computing, and artificial intelligence, the technology industry is experiencing a wave of new wave, may change and greatly affect the world around us. The world's leading information service provider IHS Markit (NASDAQ: INFO) is the latest issue of the white paper entitled "the eight major trends in global technology 2018". I'll help you understand how these technologies are gathered in a brand new and powerful way, fundamentally changing the business, promoting innovation and subverting the industry, creating opportunities while threatening.
The eight transformational technologies in the 2018 global market, described in the IHS Markit white paper, are summarized as follows:
Trend one: artificial intelligence (AI)
Artificial intelligence has grown to a certain extent and has become a competitive advantage in several industries, especially smart phones, cars and medical markets. In addition, the optimization of mobile devices and cloud based solutions are becoming the focus. Artificial intelligence based on cloud computing adopts deep learning algorithm, which has stronger computing power for data analysis, but there are some problems such as privacy, delay and stability. The artificial intelligence of mobile devices is, to some extent, helping to offset these dangers. For example, if smart phone users deploy built-in artificial intelligence on their phones, they can store data locally and protect their privacy.
Trend two: the Internet of things (IoT)
IHS Markit predicts that the installation base of the global Internet of things equipment will increase to 73 billion in 2025. The integration of enhanced connectivity options and edge computing and cloud analysis will bring about the four stage evolution of Internet of things in 2018 and the "connection, collection, computation and creation".
The enhanced connectivity of the Internet of things, such as low power wireless access (LPWA), will boost growth. In addition, the technology related to the Internet of things will become more and more mature. Machine video and ubiquitous video will support new types of visual analysis. Artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and virtualization will help to produce critical judgments derived from the so-called "edge" data of the so-called computer network. AI is applied to data, which will save cost, improve efficiency and service mode, transform from product centered to service centered, and promote profitability.
Trend three: cloud computing and virtualization
Cloud services will pave the way for technically less mature enterprises to apply machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence, fundamentally changing their use and understanding of data.
Trend four: connectedness
Connectivity will be the focus as the first batch of 5G commercial deployments appear. However, the path to 5G's comprehensive application and deployment is rather complex. For mobile Internet operators, technology providers, device manufacturers and end users, new opportunities and challenges are coexisting. 5G represents the rapid expansion of traditional cellular technology, besides mobile voice and broadband, as well as the integration of a large number of Internet of things and various key application systems.
Trend five: ubiquitous video
Screens and cameras are widely applied to various devices of consumers and enterprises, plus the increasingly advanced broadcast, fixed and mobile data networks, which are triggering big explosions in video consumption, creation, publishing and data traffic. More importantly, video content is gradually extending from entertainment to medical, educational, security, remote control and digital signage applications.
Trend six: Computer Vision
The importance of computer vision is increasing with each passing day, which is closely related to the digital trend of industry, enterprises and consumer sectors. The diversification of image sensors, coupled with the improvement of image processing and analysis, is fueling the wider application of industrial robots, UAVs, intelligent transportation systems, high quality detection, medical treatment and automobiles.
Trend seven: robots and UAVs
In 2018, the global market for robots and UAVs will grow to $3 billion 900 million. However, the deeper meaning is that robots and UAVs may subvert the long term business models of manufacturing and industry, and affect key areas such as logistics, warehousing, sorting, autonomous navigation and distribution.
Trend eight: block chain
The block chain promotes the spread of transaction, which is the basic technology of digital currencies such as bitcoin and Ethernet. Block chain applications outside financial services have been developed and deployed in 2018 will continue to expand, including: to improve advertising evaluation and combat advertising fraud using block chain; music copyright protection platform block chain and order tracking and management of electronic products supply chain solutions based on.
