As we have already seen in the past year, technology continues to advance at increasing paces. As technology continues to see more evolution from innovation, it will be important to keep track of all of the newest advances. With that in mind, what are the top technology trends to watch out for in 2019?

Autonomous Technology
While it seemed like fantasy not too many years ago, autonomous technology is now a quickly evolving field. Autonomous things include robots, drones, and self-driving cars, and can function through the use of artificial intelligence. We have already seen the first robots, and autonomous cars begin to show up, and that trend is only going to continue in the future, making it an important area of technology to know about.

Immersive Technologies
Certain areas of technology have taken off in popularity in recent years, with those including augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR) and virtual reality (VR). These technologies allow users to see the world in a different perception through the use of immersive technology. According to Gartner, nearly 70% of enterprises will experiment with immersive technologies as part of their consumer strategy by 2020, indicating that these technologies are going to get more popular.

As more technology is created to breach data of companies, so is the technology to help prevent them from happening. Cybersecurity is a quickly evolving field, as the need for safer, more secure forms of protection are needed, especially with the continued growth of the well-known black market. To protect the privacy of everyone online, cybersecurity will be unrolling new ways to protect confidential information. This could include hardware authentication, cloud technology, and deep learning.

Although these are some of the bigger trends to look out for as we approach the new year, there is still an immense amount of technology to keep an eye on. From artificial intelligence to blockchain technology, we see a new era of technology that will bring new, innovative opportunities.
