Robert Deignan is a co-owner of a southern Florida firm, ATS Digital Services. His company offers technical support and outsourcing services. His employees can take remote control of a device to troubleshoot it or provide in-person support. He is the chief executive officer of this company.
He wrote an article identifying the five key trends in technology. The first of these was artificial intelligence. Robert Deignan says that AI isn’t actually anything new and has been around as a concept since 1950. It is a field that has exploded in the last decade, though, and is getting a lot smarter.
He wrote that how AI systems are developed hasn’t really changed over the years. The AI has access to a huge database that it accesses in order to solve problems and offer solutions. He says that this technology is being used to do many things now such as mobile banking, providing search results, for ride-sharing apps, and in-home intelligent devices.
Robert Deignan sees voice recognition replacing traditional user interfaces. It’s easier and quicker to talk out loud to find out some information then type it into a browser. This technology is being rapidly improved so that it provides useful responses to what is being asked. Google, Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft all have digital voice assistants. He sees these devices being increasingly bought by consumers.
He is excited about the promise of 5G. 5G is far faster than 4G mobile technology. It will provide a way for entirely new types of apps being developed due to its sheer speed. Depending on where a person is a 5G network is anywhere from 10 to 100 times faster than 4G. 5G networks could even replace traditional cable internet for many people.
He sees more and more things being automated in the transportation industry. Robert Deignan says that autonomous cars is just the tip of the iceberg. He sees transportation eventually becoming a service instead of a thing that people buy outright. If someone needs to get somewhere they will schedule a car to come to them and get them where they need to be.
