What does 2017 hold for technology developments?
If 2016 is anything to go by as far as technology developments go, 2017 is going to be huge. While at Teledata we don’t have a handy crystal ball to peer into to see what the future holds, what we do have is internet access to see what some of the world’s top technology writers are saying. So, what can we expect to see in 2017 for technology developments? Forbes has a few idea.
2017 technology developments will be more interconnected
More interconnectedness of smart home technology should be a highlight for many in 2017, Forbes writes. Jayson DeMers writes that global tech giants like Google, Amazon, and Apple are starting to get involved with this aspect of technology in 2017, so we might see better developments there.
As sci-fi futuristic as it may seem, DeMers also writes that machine learning will take off more in 2017.
He says there could be “machine learning updates emerge across the board, entering almost any type of consumer application you can think of, from offering better-recommended products based on prior purchase history to gradually improving the user experience of an analytics app.”
People will be expecting this type of artificial intelligence as a component of every form of technology, he writes.
Writer Steve Kovach for Business Insider says 2017 will see the usual new phones and laptop releases. One point of difference could be a foldable Samsung phone, which they have been working on for years, he writes.
2017 will mark the iPhone’s 10th birthday. Like every year they will bring out a new iPhone – next year will be the 8. There’s a rumor circulating that the iPhone will have an all-glass design, Kovach writes. It will have an organic LED display for better images, no home button, new screen sizes, and more.
Technology to make virtual reality easier and more accessible for 2017
Teledata has written about virtual reality before, and 2017 should see some exciting technology developments there. Kovach writes new virtual reality headsets are to work with Windows 10. A new, free update coming to Windows 10 early next year will let just about anyone use a VR headset with their PC.
