2016 came and went. Some trends were left in the dust just like how the year passed by. Now that a new year has come, new technologies are expected to emerge.
Here are some of the technology predictions for this 2017.
1. Automation is becoming a common thing
When it comes to business, automation isn’t new. Customer service systems are automated and almost everybody is forced to call whenever help is needed. This year, automation will be commonplace almost to the extent that wherever we turn our heads we can click one button and do a lot of things.
Technology keeps on getting better and better and so does automation. Jobs and smart devices will take automation a step higher. But what’s the downside? The lack of interpersonal communication has always been the biggest issue. Furthermore, automation can result in jobs moving away from humans and towards robots instead.
Why hire a lot of people when the computer can do more compared to the sum of them all? A leading example would be some of the McDonald’s chains now that are completely automated and run by machines.
