IT Trends Coming In 2018

IT Trends Coming In 2018

As the year comes to a close, all the analysts are making their predictions for which tech trends will take off in the new year. I’ve read several, and while they differ slightly, everyone seems to agree on the following three: Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Augmented Reality (AR).

With the recent peak of bitcoin, many think the blockchain will be adapted to more than just financial transactions in the coming year. Likewise, AI should see an sharp uptick. Especially wiht major players like Intel getting on board. Whether bots, digital assistants, or robots, analysts predict a major increase in the way we use AI. On to AR… Pokemon Go was a great example of how augmented reality makes its way into our everyday lives. Expect more apps and devices to utilize this type of technology in 2018.
