Led by Intelligence Analyst Meghna Rao
Our intelligence analysts spend a major part of their jobs getting to know industries intimately. We’ve asked each of them – including healthcare, retail, artificial intelligence and 3D printing – to describe a trend in 2018 that will come to fruition.
In this briefing, we’ll deep dive into the tech trends to watch in 2018. It’s a wide, expansive coverage of some of the most interesting things happening across industries, from how 3D printing is impacting manufacturing to the brewing war that artificial intelligence has launched between chip makers.
A few of the trends covered include:
- Cars as a subscription good
- The rise of massive simultaneous online social communities
- Pay-per second cloud computing
- Holograms become a format for augmented reality
