The technology trends of 2017 were big and impactful, with artificial intelligence (AI) topping the charts, along with on-demand workforce platforms and designing for the human experience.
In 2018, technology is set to shift an even bigger focus on the internet of things (IoT), AI and machine learning. To find out what technologies helped shape 2017 and what tech trends to expect in 2018, I asked a panel of entrepreneurs from YEC the following question: In your opinion, what technology trend has shaped 2017 and what tech trend do you predict will make waves in 2018?
Their best answers are below: 1. Intelligent Apps. There are many social media channels these days, and I foresee an increase in apps that will make it easy to repurpose content across multiple platforms.
In 2017, we have already seen many apps perfect the photo editing process with filters and sophisticated features. In 2018, I think video editing will become a lot easier through the phone, simplifying the process of creating advanced videos.
