January 4, 2016

Are you ready to step into the new tech era? Working out our production and marketing strategies for the year 2016, we we continue scraping through the piles of predictions filtering the most close to life ones to be ahead of the game on the IT market next year. Come join us!

#7 “Becoming X”: Machine Learning Security

Improving analytics services, tracking user behavior, detecting network troubles or malware — these are just a few parts of magic that machine learning works today enhancing system security. To enjoy it at full capacity, one should care to employ those open source machine learning tools along with their APIs that major clouds boast now.

#8 Sensors Are Watching You

The notorious device mesh absolutized by Gartner implies that our daily patterns increasingly lose last bits of privacy. An impressive growth in sensor-based devices development would soon enable these embedded sensors to work together on gathering comprehensive data about the users — always at hand to help, and always watching. Such an outstanding ability is cutely tagged as ambient UX, the feature that would most likely require an especially elaborate app design to ensure smooth synchronization processes.

On the other hand, some researchers emphasize that companies that deliver sensor-based devices should expect particular challenges. Now that sensors start to combine, developers must adapt them into tiny, cheap, and disposable multipurpose items.

#9 Cloud Hybridity Wins

Managing and running apps at scale — that’s the high mission of Azure Stack for Microsoft’s Windows Server. The tool generously offers its users to duplicate some necessary bits of public cloud infrastructure.

Thus, a hybrid service ecosystem would likely become more tangible after the launch of Windows Server and System Center and their integration with Azure in 2016.

#10 Clockwork Design: Just Use the Data

Retailers are luckers that are going to especially benefit from massive data generated and analyzed by machine learning algorithm platforms. Thus, Amazon employs them to prepare custom recommendations, while department stores track shoppers’ behavior and preferences through their smartphones. That’s what data driven design serves for: enriching retailers’ insights it becomes a turning point for business growth.

#11 Blockchain Starring

Turning from a mysterious talk of the town into a potentially breakthrough transactions integrator, bitcoin’s blockchain scheme is under a close look among trading front runners, contractors, warehouse keepers, and even banks that seek the safest platform for money turnover.

#12 VR Headsets, Video Games, and AI Exploring the Subconsciousness

Apart from making their way straight to the mass market, VR headsets are being thoroughly tested on the medical therapy abilities that are believed to be extraordinary. Researchers consider the VR transcendence as a trailblazing way of treatment for PTSD, chronic pain, a means of exposure therapy, and more.

That revolutionary rebirth concerns video games as well, as a recent word of mouth has been all about FDA-approvement for ADHD treatment purposes. Thus, treatment-oriented game development seems to become a welcoming and rewarding field. To top it off, AI will soon join the “medical staff” to help treat patients diagnosed with autism as being a specimen of irreproachable patience and calmness.

#13 Mission: Responsible. 3D-printing

Once started as a trendy whatnot, 3D-printing takes on increasingly responsible missions — from manufacturing artificial limbs to building engine parts and even rocket components for SpaceX. Mature and wide prospects are apparent.
