In addition to their Top 10 Technology Trends for 2019, say the researchers, this year they also review additional technologies that have not yet reached broad adoption and which will be revisited next year, as well as some technologies that have already achieved broad adoption.
"The Computer Society's predictions, based on an in-depth analysis by a team of leading technology experts, identify top technologies that have substantial potential to disrupt the market in the year 2019," says Hironori Kasahara, IEEE Computer Society President. "The technical community depends on the Computer Society as the source of technology IP, trends, and information. IEEE-CS predictions represent our commitment to keeping our community prepared for the technological landscape of the future."
Dejan Milojicic, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Distinguished Technologist and IEEE Computer Society past president (2014), adds, "In 2019 we expect to see ever-increasing adoption of deep learning accelerators in the areas of transportation, advanced security, and technologies for humanity. Fueled by advanced materials, adoption of virtual reality and the Internet of Bodies will stretch the future to new unknowns. We are excited about our predictions and the bets we have made for 2019's technology trends."
The organization's top 10 technology trends for 2019 are:
