Technology is changing at a break-neck pace, and the security marketplace is currently being bombarded by a wealth of new capabilities and innovations. But what will be the impact? Which of the currently-hyped new innovations will have a major impact, and which will fade over time? And even acknowledging the long-term significance of various technologies, what can we expect to be the more immediate effect? We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What new security technology is poised to have the greatest impact in the second half of 2017?
Our Expert Panelists provide abundant food for thought as they list a wide variety of technologies they say will have an impact in the second half of 2017, including artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning, metadata, remote communications, robotics, cloud-based access control, smart phones, and video storage. As one panelist notes, six months isn’t long – and may not be enough time for a technology to truly have an impact; but given the accelerating pace of technology adoption, who knows how different our industry’s technology landscape will be by the year’s end?
