Technology is now growing rapidly that facilitates a faster innovation and growth. Throughout 2018, technology has been evolving at a rapid pace, but what's next for 2019?

In this blog, we shall discuss the latest technology trends look for in 2019 which will influence enterprises and consumers. These technologies will improve the future of the world.


Here is the list of technology trends you should watch for in 2019.


 1. Artificial Intelligence (AI)


Artificial intelligence is the advancement of computer-related devices and they do not require humans for performing tasks such as making a decision, identifying the speech, visualizing the objects etc. Artificial intelligence is the development of New Wave of Artificial Intelligence Tech in Everyday Life.

AI was a consecutive news generator in 2018 and in 2019 as well, it will become another steady trend in our digital lives, just like the internet, electricity, and combustion. Every device, app, machines have started using Artificial Intelligence since last decades. The companies like Tesla, Google, Microsoft, Apple has launched various products such as a self-driving car, spectacles,  algorithms, automotive systems etc, are using Artificial Intelligence. The developer of mobile and PC's application has recently started the artificial intelligence.


Today's AI is called weak AI or Narrow AI, used to perform a very limited task, but in future, the application shall expand largely in various types of fields and all forms of technologies. The wrong use or faulty loopholes of AI should avoid as it can cause serious casualties.


 2. Machine Learning


Machine learning is the application where machines learn and improve the performance and ability from its past experience without external programming. It is kind of application of Artificial intelligence. Over the years Machine learning made possible the various kind of technology possible such as health-care, military etc. The vast learning market in the future will cross $18 billion, according to leading sources. The daily-life applications can be found in virtual assistants, video surveillance, social media services, email spam and filtering etc.


 3. Robotic Process Automation (RPA)


The RPA is the process of configuring the computer software that interacts with digital systems and can automate the repetitive and monotonous tasks performed by humans. These systems can replace human force and reduce the cost of business operations. It is predicted that automation technologies have the potential to reach about $6.7 trillions by 2025. The robotic process automation can impact the activities of human life such as online shopping, form processing, credit card functionalities etc.  


 4. Cyber Security


Cybersecurity is the protection of systems that are connected with the internet, including hardware, software and data from cyber attacks.

As per the upgraded cybersecurity, trends are indicating that the tech world is focusing on cybersecurity and keeping up with our opponents utilising machine learning and artificial intelligence to predict and defend against attacks.


5. Quantum Computing (Supercomputing)


Quantum computing is computer technology which is developed on the basis of quantum theory. Currently, IBM, MIT, Oxford University, Los Alamos National Laboratory etc, are working towards the development of this technology.  Paul Benioff, first theorized the quantum computing theory at Argonne National Labs, in 1981. The quantum computing uses qubits instead of binary bits in classical computing. Quantum computing is extremely faster by an exponential factor than classical computing technique available today. The quantum computing is still under development.

 6. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)


The virtual reality allows the humans to interact with fully computer-generated graphics world, while augmented reality allows the computer-generated graphics to interact with the real world, thus user sees a combined view.  Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR etc products, software and games use this technology for entertainment and gaming purposes. In future, this technology can be integrated with many technologies.


 7. Global Internet of Things (IoT) security breach


IoT is the network of devices and its connectivity such as vehicles, electronic home appliances, software, which allows the things to combine and operate. These complex network between devices has left more security breaches and customer dissatisfaction in recent years. Everyday the attacks on the IoT has been expanded since the number of digital dimensions has increased in the last few decades. Despite these challenges, the market value of the global Internet of Things (IoT) security valued at $1.24 billion in 2017. This technology prevents data identity theft, data falsification, IP theft, network manipulations etc.


 8. Blockchain technology


The blockchain is a set of records known as blocks are linked with the cryptography.

A blockchain is a decentralized public distributed digital ledger that manages to record recent transactions across many computers.

In the year 2018, a Gartner survey cited the number of CIOs with real blockchain implementation at their organizations at 1% globally; 8% were experimenting, and 77% weren’t interested.


Moreover, the Gartner Hype Cycle forecasts the time for higher, focused investments in blockchain will begin in the year 2022 and large-scale, global value-add won't start until 2027.

Though this technology could not do well in 2018,  it is expected to grow in future and experts have presented two recent predictions for Blockchain in the supply chain is "Progress will happen" and "Food supply chain will be first".

Blockchain may be proven as a captivating technology in the coming years.


These technologies are worth to watch in 2019.
