Quantum computers are an exciting new technology which can allow for complex problems to be solved that today’s most powerful super computers cannot solve, and probably never will. They work by harnessing the phenomena of quantum mechanics, and deliver a huge leap forward in computation to solve the complex problems, which the super computers cannot.
In the previous decade companies in every industry put a huge emphasis on using Cloud based data collection and computing. The advantage to this was that their systems were centralised and accessible, allowing increased levels of security and collaboration. Although, at the start of the 2020s, we are beginning to witness a shift from Cloud
Over the next few years we will start to see Fifth Generation mobile internet (5G) become more mainstream in everyday life and business, from the world of retail to farming and factories. What is 5G? Through a greater use of the radio spectrum, 5G will allow more devices to access the internet at
Blockchain: Speeding up transactions, building trust and guaranteeing provenance to grease the wheels of commerce. Blockchain works when someone asserts a transaction i.e. ‘I want to pay you X for something’. This transaction is then broadcast to all connected computers that are participating in that blockchain. Participants assess the transaction and then approve or deny
Artificial Intelligence: Super-fast data crunching, pricing insurance policies and potentially curing cancer. The real question is – what problems can’t AI help with? Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the hot trend that’s on every tech evangelists’ lips right now. We see AI doing the more mundane computer-based tasks which are better off done by computer so
Augmented Reality (AR): Improve R&D and maintenance operations Build emotional engagement with products in an AR-enabled, ‘visualise before you buy’ world. Augmented Reality (AR) is a visual or audio ‘overlay’ on the physical world that uses contextualised digital information to augment the user’s real-world view. The power of bringing information to the point of action
