Five Emerging Tech Trends
It’s time to start thinking of your artificial intelligence algorithm as a representative of your company and to make sure it upholds your company values. That is one of the key points made by the global consulting firm Accenture in a recent forecast of the five technology trends likely to unfold over the next three years.

The report points to business opportunities arising out of advances in virtual reality and augmented reality and the potential benefits of pushing artificial intelligence out into physical objects such as utility grids and industrial equipment. By tapping into emerging technologies with cloud services, says Accenture, companies can now reimagine the way we do business.
