Technology Trends for 2018

An Article By, David Tan, Chief Technology Officer

Every year, in January, we like to put together a story about what we think will be the big emerging trends in technology for the upcoming 12 months.  It’s always fun and interesting to think about where we are going, what we need to think about, and start the planning that will shape our business and more importantly all our clients.  If you don’t plan for the large shifts in emerging technology, you will surely be passed by and more importantly left behind.  So, with that as the backdrop, let’s look into a few things I think will dominate the tech landscape in 2018.

Microsoft and Adaptive Biotechnologies announce partnership using AI to decode immune system; diagnose, treat disease

Used with Permission from Microsoft AI Blog: An Article By, Peter Lee

The human immune system is an astonishing diagnostic system, continuously adapting itself to detect any signal of disease in the body. Essentially, the state of the immune system tells a story about virtually everything affecting a person’s health. It may sound like science fiction, but what if we could “read” this story? Our scientific understanding of human health would be fundamentally advanced. And more importantly, this would provide a foundation for a new generation of precise medical diagnostic and treatment options.

Looking Back on 2017

An Article By, Evan Leonard, President

With the ending of each year we like to take a moment and look back on the past year to reflect on what has happened in business and the world of technology and what will the new year bring. We have seen technology rapidly revolutionize everyday life and the disruption it is having on businesses. The fast pace of change is adding more stress to our lives because we are expected to make the right decisions in an area that is out of your expertise.  Even in the past few weeks, the financial news has been dominated by block chain and bitcoin. It is not the easiest concept to understand and it that something you need to know, should be investing, etc.

Giving Thanks This Season

An Article By, Evan Leonard, President

With Thanksgiving almost here, it is that time of year to reflect on our lives. I always reflect on family, self and business and concentrate on the positive things to be most thankful for.  As a technologist, the most fun about my job and the company is the new and emerging technology we get to interact with every day.  Thinking about the technology that contributes to making the world a better place in both my professional and personal life. If you take a look around, and really think about how technology is improving quality of life itself, you will be amazed. This year I am reflecting on the advantages of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning.   From the healthcare industry to preparing our taxes, computers are enhancing our lives.  Make no mistake, machines plus humans equal the best results.  Tackling Big Data and making better correlations among the data in order to diagnose or inform better decision making processes has improved dramatically in a very short period of time.

A fresh wave of artificial intelligence rolling through Microsoft’s language translation technologies is bringing more accurate speech recognition to more of the world’s languages and higher quality machine-powered translations to all 60 languages supported by Microsoft’s translation technologies.

The advances were announced at Microsoft Tech Summit Sydney in Australia on November 16th.

“We’ve got a complex machine, and we’re innovating on all fronts,” said Olivier Fontana, the director of product strategy for Microsoft Translator, a platform for text and speech translation services.

Ask Amazon Alexa to find an Urgent Care Center or Emergency Room…Ask Northwell Health.

An Article By, Evan Leonard, President

With all the advancements in technology, one thing people still hate is the unknown of wasting time. How long is it going to take to get food, wait in line at DMV or an urgent care center? We are all demanding to be more efficient with our time. The technology is out there but it is our job to embrace it and make it work for us

Northwell Health is trying to service their customers better using Amazon Alexa. They realize and embrace the digital transformation wave that is happening right before or eyes. If you need to visit an Urgent Care Center or an Emergency Room, in many ways you feel as if you are in the Stone Age. Will you be waiting for an hour? Three hours? More? It can be frustrating especially when you’re in need of something as critical as medical services – when it might not be convenient or even safe for that matter to wait for an extended time.

Microsoft is using machine reading to create a ‘literate machine’

An Article By: Michael Sawh, Wearable.com 

Remember the story from a few weeks ago that the Boston Red Sox used an Apple Watch to steal pitching signals from the Yankees? Well, it sounds like it was actually a Fitbit and not an Apple’s smartwatch at the centre of the cheating scandal.

That’s according to Nick Carfardo, baseball writer at the Boston Globe, who tweeted that a Major League source has revealed there was no Apple Watch involved in the Red Sox sign stealing. It was actually a Fitbit device.
