Internet of Things
The booming technology is connecting the devices in a meaningful way to get the value out of it by making them communicate and then listening to them. IoT is all set to digitize the physical world by creating a network of sensors and actuators from smartphones to smart cars, smart transportation, smart healthcare and smart cities. The increased number of sensors on the devices and their decreased cost has fuelled the connected devices across the globe.
The tech giant, Google is working on the IoT OS- Nest and Brillo to fulfill the home automation needs. The communication technology such as RFID, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and EnOcean are powering the IoT concept. Amazon Echo is another release of home automation devices by Amazon where all the home devices are connected and controlled over Wi-Fi network by a voice command.
Taking a step further, the increasing convergence and interconnectivity between the devices are gearing up the businesses to adopt the technology trend despite what their domain is. However, the risk exists, but the immense opportunities outweigh them.

For the better management of the smart devices, the growth in the mobile app development embracing futuristic technology is certain.
The AI technology with machine learning intelligence is reinventing the tech world by turning the table of user experience. Be it the voice assistant Siri or Google Now, photo editing in the Facebook app, walkie-talkie mode in Apple watch, chatbots integration in Messenger app, Google Lens, intelligent Google Maps and smart composer in Gmail are the best instances of it.
Even, in the recent Goole I/O conference and WWDC event 2018, most of the announcements made were about AI integration into the various offerings of the tech giants. It indicates the leading players are heavily investing in the intelligent technologies to gain the customers’ data and rich insights to lock-in the customers in their ecosystem.
Apart from the tech giants’ investment, the retailers and online businesses are implementing AI technology empowering businesses to a whole new level. The recommendation engine, personalized experience development, behavioral targeting, intelligent assistants that guide the customers throughout the journey, and chatbots integration for the customer support had made M-commerce apps exciting and stimulating the conversion rate.
