With the start of a new year, everyone questions which tech trends will radically transform the business world in 2016 and the next years.
frog made a list of 15 trends and RPGSI select a few to present you.
Analysts at investment banks, hedge funds, and insurance companies will work in tandem with artificial intelligence to make compliance, anti-fraud and research data intelligible and actionable.
At the University of Washington, burn patients undergoing medical procedures can wear headsets to play uniquely designed VR games. The games provide an immersive environment that soothes and distract patients from their excruciating pain, drastically reducing their need for highly addictive narcotic medications.
Wearable data such as activity levels and sleep patterns will be crowd sourced to automatically and objectively rate the products and services we use. Imagine exercise class ratings based on activity data of participants, or mattress ratings based on sleep data from users.
As sensing technology continues to shrink, the notion of the single purpose, visible, discrete, battery or mains- powered sensor will be rare. This revolution is being led by companies like Well Being Digital—producers of tiny biosensors that fit on and around the human body, and Clime—producers of environmental sensors that combine a tiny form factor with the ability to fuse together basic measurements such as temperature, humidity, light and movement to drive subtle applications.
2016 could see haptics incorporated into a much wider range of surfaces. Haptic feedback could let shoppers “feel” the texture of clothing online, help older people regain balance with haptic insoles, or help drivers use displays without taking their eyes off the road.
