What are some tech features that will take off during the next few years?


1) Artificial intelligence will process data and provide valuable insight.

We have a lot of data. One of the great things about the digital era is that we are able to collect data on just about everything. The problem is sifting through and making sense of this data. That's where AI systems will come into play. A number of tech companies are already working on a feature called 'deep neural networks' - a system which would enable computers to learn and make autonomous decisions. Companies like Alphabet, Microsoft and Alibaba are already using advanced computing capabilities to process data.


2) 5G networks

5G networks are already under prototype development, and experts predict the systems will be available by 2020. While 4G networking was put in place to make smartphones faster, 5G networks will allow for higher data rates (1G to 20G), will enable lower latency and data loss, and most importantly, widespread 5G network capability will allow tech with the Internet of Things (IoT) to function effectively.


3) Autonomous vehicles

The exciting development is that autonomous vehicles are already on the road. A number of invested companies, Google, Tesla, BMW, Intel, and Uber, have already invested in the autonomous industry. It's only a matter of time before wide scale adoption. In fact, Intel recently bought Mobileye, an Israeli-based company that facilitates the tech behind some already widespread autonomous features. Think about blind-spot detection and lane-change assist.


4) Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality is more or less a reality now. First generation tech such as Facebook's Oculus headset, Samsung Gear VR are already out there. Intel, along with Oculus, recently offered NCAA fans a VR experience for the final games of the March Madness. Any fan could watch the final games through a court side viewpoint.
