There are few trends which I discussed early here I just want to point best available site giving trend information.
1. Electronic signature will grow this point is very valid also came in market reserach.
2 Companies will focus on being remarkable: This point I found wonderful: I want to qualify this point further Leadership will be most important thing for next atleast 5 yrs..Every company will look out for Steave Jobs, bill gates,jack walsh and warren buffet.
As the competition increase it cycles becoming short..the effect of vision of visionary leader is seen in company in just 5 yrs span. Earlier it was 50 yrs then became 25 yrs..now its range is 5 yrs…i will say actually 3 yrs..So this point is very important.
3. Democratization of Education: increasingly educational resources are now available to everyone and poor through youtube, thorough other sites…Future even PHD student will be working and simultaneously doing PHD work at night..or free time…may take 7 -10 yrs but these PHD will change face of world as they will be more practical and dedicated.
Gartner Hype cycle for emerging technology predicts few unknown trends..
3. Biggest trend to me in authentication mechanism will open up new padora box as Iris technology is now considered unstable:
“Their research involved taking iris codes that had been created from real eye scans as well as synthetic iris images created wholly by computers and modifying the latter until the synthetic images matched real iris images. The researchers used a genetic algorithm to achieve their results.”
it takes about 5-10 minutes to produce an iris image that matches an iris code.
It will definitely change bio metric market since iris is considered most accurate technology. Will iris technology stand up to this technology only time will tell.. still its most secure technology but its broken..it need to adjust…if it cannot then with this attack its almost use less. anyone wear lens can fool technology then to impersonate another person.
