2016 Technology Trends you'll want to know about
January 19, 2016 by Keith De Alwis in Blog entries
As one of the leading app development agencies in england we often get asked our opinions on which the main technology trends are, and just what the hottest areas of tech are. We spoken with many vendors, manufactures, agencies and mobile operators at CES 2016 and concluded what we think are the top 10 2016 technology trends.
1. Information of other nutritional foods (IOE)
With tech moving towards interconnectivity where everything in your household will be linked to the internet, the main challenge for that industry will be how and that can harness the massive amount of data that will become available. Having a predicted 25 billion devices by 2020, data is going to be generated and mined across almost every topic and niche around. The real trick is going to be who can harness this data and just 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 has a top speed of 60 MPH along with a maximum altitude of 11,000 feet and can be programmed to fly back and forth from specific GPS locations. First autonomous cars and today autonomous drones. This is an section of massive development using the ability for robots to understand and surpass people their ability to perform human tasks. The true challenge for governments and regulating authorities is to control the transfer of 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, the ability to print car engine parts (like Tesla have begun doing) and printing rocket parts that have historically been exorbitantly expensive for create, suddenly industries can afford produce material and significantly lower costs. Take this technology forward ten years and we can see 3D printing extend to biological material, including food.
4. The Device “Mesh”
Another key 2016 key technology trend would be the device Mesh. As devices gets smarter and more relevant, the ability to start tracking patterns from sensor arrays has become much more prevalent. These device sensors increase in number and when grouped together can begin to start gathering data on the daily patterns.The final results will ultimately lead to even greater insights about our daily patterns.
5. Advanced Machine Learning (AML)
With trends such as the device mesh, technologies can collect meaningful patterns of information but with advanced Machine learning the technology will not only manage to collect the data, but study from in as well. We're really seeing very early advanced Artificial intelligence (AI) where much of the initial analysis typically that will require a human, will be replicated by technology thereby elevating the learning in the process. Anyone else have SkyNet jump under consideration?
6. Personal Home computer to personal home helper
Mark Zuckerburg recently posted among his new resolutions was to personally research and code your own home helper that may do everything from set the high temperature of his house to acquire his groceries. He cited Jarvis from Ironman as the ultimate in home helper and from what we should saw at CES there are many companies far down the line in this field of tech and this will be a key 2016 technology trend.

7. Smart Security also called Adaptive Security Architecture
One seriously hot division of tech right now could 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 this trend likely to continue a huge amount of R&D has gone into smart security where predictive modelling will permit systems & infrastructure to detect and launch automated counter measures on attacks. Not simply will they defend themselves from attacks Like DoS (Denial of Service) they will attack back.
8. Mesh Apps
This can be one we have seen coming for some time. Rather than building apps to pay for all parts of a given product/service, Mesh Apps are plugging together several technologies in to a single app. This strategy can massively quicken deliver times in addition to making scalability much easier to manage.
9. Ambiant UE (Buyer)
The device mesh creates the foundation for a new continuous and ambient user experience. Immersive environments delivering augmented and virtual reality hold significant potential but you are only one aspect of the experience. The ambient consumer experience preserves continuity across boundaries of device mesh, time and space. The experience seamlessly flows across a shifting group of devices and interaction channels blending physical, virtual and electronic environment since the user moves in one place to another.
10. Next Generation Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality Headsets were entirely force throughout CES. Present day virtual reality (VR) varies, but for the most part it involves a headset which has a 360-degree virtual view, operated by a gaming computer and handheld controllers that enable the wearer to move around and interact with the digital world they see. Big players in this field were HTC using vive headset and of course the Facebook owned Oculus Rift.
However, despite numerous high-end devices on the verge of launching - and also 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 is available free online - will be widespread, because the public’s growing understanding of virtual reality fuels new interest.
