Pleased New Year 2019 – The Calendar year That Rings In The New Period Of Technological know-how

by Werner Goertz  |  January 1, 2019  |  Post a Remark

Wanting back again at 2018: laptops gross sales continue being sluggish. Cell markets are saturated. Wearables, AR/VR have failed to produce on buzz. A varied portfolio of machine types is what shoppers choose to entry cloud products and services. All these solutions competing for a single wallet.

Meanwhile, Cloud vendors space gearing up(1) to unleash new price from an AI service named Reinforcement Discovering: this enables adaptive AI programs in sensible city, enterprise, and individual systems. Assume Waze/Roomba, only better – opening up new companies in private robotics online courses, connecting the digital planet of AI with the analog, actual physical planet. Robotic helpers will autonomously learn to adapt to genuine planet environments(2) and be digital/analog helpers, Jetsons-design and style!

2019 will established the stage for a radical transformation of the tech landscape by way of 2025:

Units are relegated to intermediaries, and brands get rid of differentiation
5 of the major 10 cellular telephone companies of 2009 no longer exist in today’s Top 10. By 2024, fewer than five of today’s leaders will continue being. The gadgets landscape will be re-invented as a portfolio, glued collectively by ecosystems and platforms. There will be few, high volume/low charge components OEMs/ODMs and a lot of, a lot of casualties.

Value is designed by (Cloud) ecosystems / platforms that produce persuasive encounters
Actual money is made by those who produce, govern and monetize substantial ecosystems, managed loosely plenty of to encourage broad 3rd bash participation and tightly sufficient to produce compelling consumer activities. An explosion of AI enablers (voice, eyesight, adaptive robotics online courses) is ignited by democratization of AI parts. Voice UIs, pc eyesight, and adaptive machine learning online courses will develop into table-stakes for 3rd party units, applications and companies. Cloud AI vendors (AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft, Alibaba, Baidu,…) accelerate adoption through no-CAPEX, absolutely free developer applications, and pay out-per use.



  • Buyers whose life are offloaded of chores and enriched by meaningful experiences
  • Enterprises that benefit from productivity gains
  • Good cities that benefit from adaptive source and infrastructure administration


  • Shoppers not able to reconcile innovation with fears over technological know-how, privateness, etcetera.
  • Technological innovation vendors not able to transcend boundaries among digital and analog worlds
  • Governments with no digital / analog AI technique, monopolizing obtain to details, providers and innovation
