Another year has passed and once again it’s high time we listed software predictions for the coming one. Most of you probably wonder – what more can technology bring? Is there anything left? Well, 2016 is surely about to surprise you and answer these questions.

First and foremost, 2016 is said to be all about the rise of the machines. However scary that sounds, we don’t need to worry because it’s all intended to make our lives better. Since connections between us and machines became closer and closer, we can expect this year to introduce new, mutual benefits of this relationship.

  • Machine learning

Have you ever paid attention to your typical work day? Coffee, filing papers, performing tasks – how about doing all that plus collaborating with a robot? Sounds pretty sci-fi, doesn’t it?

Well, soon it may become our everyday reality. Co-working with robots, operating self-driving cars and asking Siri what to eat for dinner is not as far away as you’d think. Greater interest in robots is to emerge due to their faster, more unbiased, and transparent thinking. In result, they may free us from performing lots of daily tasks, which will result in far fewer mistakes, if any.

This is just the beginning because machines are planned to enter other aspects of business as well. Robo-bosses and robo-agents are just a few examples. However, this phenomenon is bound to evolve even more in the following years.

  • Sensors, sensors everywhere…

Internet of Things opened quite a lot of doors for sensor-based devices. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the concept – sensors are to collect valuable data, improving efficiency of machines, indispensable for critical purposes.

This year the device mesh will expand, giving sensors far more opportunities to flourish. Smart buildings, medical equipment, and environmental devices are just a start. Sensors are to bring more real-life connection to the cyber side of technology. Entering another dimensions is just around the corner.

  • Increased security

We are all connected – there is no denying that. However this blessing in disguise is what makes us vulnerable.

Previous year brought plenty of security issues. This is why, CEOs are going an extra mile to protect themselves, giving others an opportunity to display their skills. 2016 is to bring more thorough detection of threats especially on very early stages. This will lead to quicker responding and blocking hazardous actions.

Additionally, most applications are to be equipped with their own protection system, as well as user behaviour analytics, helping with security architecture.

As you can see, 2016 is the year which is bound to show us whether we are actually ready to cooperate with brass-made creatures. The era of sci-fi living is ahead of us. What more can we expect? Well, let’s just wait and see.
