3D printing, robotics: The 10 most important technology trends 2016 – CIO

Gartner speculates about the trends of the future.

Which trends Trends shape IT and technology in the coming year – this question answered now, the US market research firm Gartner in the paper “Gartner Identifies the Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2016″. This involves a lot to the development of learning machines and robots as well as to integrate the growing amount of data from a variety of sources and devices. More from IT Trends on

trends in detail:

. 1 Device mishmash: Gartner summarizes under this point, the growing amount of mobile devices together. It’s not just about smartphones and iPads, but also to wearables (about the personal health management), classical consumer devices and devices for the networked home appliances as well as in relation to the Internet of Things. Task of providers of all services and gadgets is to enable interoperability of this mishmash.

. 2 Detecting the immediate vicinity: The world is less and less what it seems – or the IT changes the perception of the world towards Augmented Reality and Virtual Worlds. But still the enjoyable user experience media breaks stand in the way. Among independent software vendors will be until 2018 that prevail, who can best kitten these media breaks.

. 3 3D printing: It has long since not only to things like spare parts for machines for 3D printing. Tinkerers are already talking of biological material such as human skin, which can be produced by 3D printing. Gartner expects in, however ambiguous text segment “3D-printable materials” by 2019, an annual growth of 64 percent.

4. Procedure in the all-embracing information: content data, such as documents, audio data, video data, data from sensors – the whole world is captured for data processing, are missing people who put these data into useful contexts. These people need semantic tools. Gartner writes “Information of Everything” already as a kind of new strategy that will tackle this issue.

. 5 Learning machine: In his “Robot fairytale” writes Polish author Stanislav Lem on Urweltmaschinen that produced the thinking machines, in turn, the clever machines produced up to the perfect machine. Gartner seems to follow a similar logic. Smart machines will be the classic computing behind and learn independently by Deep Neural Nets (DNN).

. 6 Autonomous vehicles and agents: The safe-known example of a self-propelled vehicle is probably the Google Car. But Gartner does not want to neglect, including understanding the analysts example Cortana from Microsoft or Apple Siri of the autonomous agent. In the next five years a post-app world will arise in such intelligent assistance systems play a major role. CIOs in companies should already explore how they can use it for employees and customers.

. 7 Adaptive security architectures: While CIOs are increasingly using cloud and provide open interfaces to integrate partners, suppliers and customers better, does not sleep, the hacker industry. When it comes to security, companies must demonstrate adaptive.

. 8 Adaptive system architectures: What is true of security architectures, also relates to the system architectures. Gartner writes of neuro-morphological architectures which all the hardware (stationary and mobile) and allow the data from sensors and other sources to the interaction. CIOs are increasingly operate with Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). To put it bluntly: The IT systems alike increasingly the functioning of a human brain at

. 9. App-and-services architectures: The time monolithic application designs is over. The architecture of the future is based on apps and services. It works software defined and should therefore enable greater agility and flexibility. The keywords here are Micro Services and container.

10th Platforms for the Internet of Things: The above-mentioned new architectures require new platforms, IoT controls more requirements at. CIOs need to review their current platforms, which will be no easy task, according to Gartner. Because: The supplier market for suitable platforms is difficult to understand, of standardization can not have any speech at this whole issue be. Which is not even better 2018, estimates Gartner.
