Microsoft Predicts 2016

Microsofts predictions for 2016. Worth a read. Lots about machine learning, big-data and encryption. All very optimistic including one guy (Lucas Joppa) who expects the human race to wake up to technology being the saviour to our impending doom. Unfortunately I fear the human race is all too desperate for a saviour – real or imagined – and that desperation can lead to a belief in false gods little better than the devil we know today. But still, there’s a huge amount that can be done to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of technology in general and so vast room for improvement. Lets hope Mr Joppa is right…

… oh, and yes, environmental impact is a non-functional characteristic.
