Re: Outlook 2018
I agree! It’ll definitely be interesting to see what takes place in our government. Hopefully technology can continue to move in a fast pace, positive direction.

Re: For My Money...
@batye, brilliant!  I think game theory is very relevant.  It represents the moving pieces and the unknowns with new access to information and new decisions by users.

Re: For My Money...
@DHagar  could not agree more... the way I see it as technology changing parts of the game theory - also changing in some way... do you agree ???

Re: For My Money...
@freehe, great points!  Absolutely!  The judgment aspect needs to remain the domain of human intelligence.  The predictability of variables in the application and the response must be of value to the specific situation, which cannot be predicticted (ie think "game theory").

AI
AI and machine learning have pros and cons. There are risks such as security risks, lack of security standards and underground criminals that can use AI to commit crimes.

Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk are concerned about the dangers of AI.

Re: For My Money...
@DHagar, Good points. Technology can replace repetitive tasks. However, robotics and AI are not faulty proof and errors will occur. In addition, robotics and AI cannot replace human customer service. Robots and AI cannot deescalate a situation when a customer is upset and  complaining about a problem. In addition, not all situations can be coded because sometimes human also think-out-of-the-box which cannot be coded or at least not yet.

Outlook 2018
Another factor that will determine the direction of technology in 2018 will be the mid-term elections and any changes in the current presidential administration. As we saw with the EPA, CFPB, and FCC major laws that helped the country were overturned. More of the same could continue that would greatly affect technology.

I just read this article today discussing how politics will affect major technology companies.

2018
2018 will be an exciting year. Hopefully more startups will move into these areas mentioned in the article - SD-WAN, cloud, 5G and machine learning. 2018 may be the indicator for future inventions and technology.

Top Tech 2018
I would say Cloud services, 5G and SD-WAN willl be popular in 2018. Due to the new tax changes major companies will have some funds available for R&D which will allow for more trials/pilots and more resources to expand services.
