  4. Evolve Project | Brian Pichman 4 GARTNER HYPE CYCLE
  5. Tech moves through these five phases HYPE CYCLE A potential technology breakthrough kicks things off. Early proof-of-concept stories and media interest trigger significant publicity. Often no usable products exist and commercial viability is unproven. Innovation Trigger Peak of Inflated Expectations Early publicity produces a number of success stories — often accompanied by scores of failures. Some companies take action; many do not. Trough of Disillusionment Interest wanes as experiments and implementations fail to deliver. Producers of the technology shake out or fail. Investments continue only if the surviving providers improve their products to the satisfaction of early adopters. Slope of Enlightenment More instances of how the technology can benefit start to become more widely understood. Next generation products appear. More enterprises fund pilots; conservative companies remain cautious. Plateau of Productivity Mainstream adoption starts to take off. Criteria for assessing provider viability are more clearly defined. The technology's broad market applicability and relevance are clearly paying off. SOURCE:
  6. THEME 1: EVOLVING/EXPANDING IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES ¡ Decentralized identity (DCI) allows an entity (typically a human user) to control their own digital identity by leveraging technologies such as blockchain or other distributed ledger technologies (DLTs), along with digital wallets. ¡ Digital humans are interactive, AI-driven representations that have some of the characteristics, personality, knowledge and mindset of a human. ¡ Metaverse is a collective virtual 3D shared space, created by the convergence of virtually enhanced physical and digital reality. A metaverse is persistent, providing enhanced immersive experiences. ¡ Non-fungible token (NFT) is a unique programmable blockchain-based digital item that publicly proves ownership of digital assets, such as digital art or music, or physical assets that are tokenized, such as houses, cars or documents. ¡ Superapp is a composite mobile app built as a platform to deliver modular microapps that users can activate for personalized app experiences. ¡ Web3 is a new stack of technologies for the development of decentralized web applications that enable users to control their own identity and data.
  7. THEME 2: ACCELERATED AI AUTOMATION ¡ Causal artificial intelligence (AI) identifies and utilizes cause-and-effect relationships to go beyond correlation-based predictive models and toward AI systems that can prescribe actions more effectively and act more autonomously. ¡ Foundation models are transformer architecture-based models, such as large language models, which embody a type of deep neural network architecture that computes a numerical representation of text in the context of surrounding words, emphasizing sequences of words. ¡ Generative design AI or AI-augmented design, is the use of AI, machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) technologies to automatically generate and develop user flows, screen designs, content, and presentation-layer code for digital products. ¡ Machine learning code generation tools include cloud-hosted ML models that plug into professional developer integrated development environments (IDEs), which are extensions that provide suggested code based on either natural language descriptions or partial code fragments.
  8. THEME 3: ENGINEERING TRUST ¡ A lot of the new technologies on the horizon have a core focus on providing trust through security and reliability. ¡ Example: Smart Cities fusing information together to provide real-time incident response through a variety of sensors, videos, and communication systems.
  9. Former CIA agent Reese (Jim Caviezel) -- now presumed dead -- and billionaire software genius Finch (Michael Emerson) join forces as a vigilante crime-fighting team. Using Finch's program, which employs pattern recognition to determine individuals who will soon be involved in violent crimes, they combine Reese's covert- operations training and Finch's money and cyberskills to stop crimes before they happen.
  10. THEME 4: ACCELERATING GROWTH ¡ Many of the technologies on the horizon can help accelerate growth in organizations. ¡ Example: Digital Assistants or digital twins representation that have an opportunity to solve technical issues, recommend books, and more. These can be chatbots, robots, smart speakers, etc.
  11. A boy tries to stop his father from dating by programming their computerized house to be a surrogate mother.
  12. THEME 5: SCULPTING CHANGE ¡ Everyone's favorite word “change” is a theme for 2023. ¡ The concept is “You must anticipate and influence change to mitigate risk.”
  13. Based on a story by famed science fiction writer Philip K. Dick, "Minority Report" is an action-detective thriller set in Washington D.C. in 2054, where police utilize a psychic technology to arrest and convict murderers before they commit their crime. Tom Cruise plays the head of this Precrime unit and is himself accused of the future murder of a man he hasn't even met.
  14. Top Strategic Tech Themes
  15. Data Fabric • Data is incredibly valuable • Data is used to make decisions • Data is used to make predictions • Data is unfortunately siloed between application • Data Fabric allows you to pull data from across a variety of sources therefore making it useable wherever its needed
  16. How It's Used Today: The Finnish city of Turku found its innovation held back by gaps in its data. By integrating fragmented data assets, it was able to reuse data, reduce time to market by two-thirds, and create a monetizable data fabric.
  17. Cybersecurity Mesh • Just as Data is important, Security is even more important • That Data is scattered across a variety of platforms so its important to keep those safe from tampering (removal, edits, etc). How It's Used Today: An organization in the technology space was struggling to create value from its threat intelligence program. Using a cybersecurity mesh approach, they integrated multiple data feeds from distinct security products to better identify and respond more quickly to incidents.
  18. Privacy-Enhancing Computation • Continuing on with our theme of “data” – data is also being used for AI Models, building analytics, and insight. But data also has privacy concerns attached to it. • As data is transmitted, shared, or used – the concept of encrypting or splitting out sensitive data is a trend so that data can still be used as informal without compromising confidentiality.
  19. How It's Used Today: DeliverFund is a U.S.-based nonprofit with a mission to tackle human trafficking. Its platforms use homomorphic encryption so partners can conduct data searches against its extremely sensitive data, with both the search and the results being encrypted. In this way, partners can submit sensitive queries without having to expose personal or regulated data at any point.
  20. Cloud-Native Platforms • As more things are being moved to the “cloud” (or off premise) but not all applications can simply be moved in such manner. How It's Used Today: A major Indian bank built a cloud-native platform to create a portfolio of new digital financial services. The bank was able to reduce the time to open an account to just 6 minutes and add instant digital payments. Deployment of a new microservices architecture enabled the integration of savings, virtual debit card and credit card services, allowing the system to easily scale to over 3.5 million transactions in two months.
  21. Sculpting Change Themes Composable Applications • How It's Used Today: Ally Bank has created PBCs representing repeatable capabilities such as fraud alerting, which its fusion teams can assemble in low-code environments, saving over 200,000 hours of manual effort. Hyperautomation • How It's Used Today: A global oil and gas company has 14 concurrent hyperautomation initiatives. These initiatives include targeted task automation, industrializing over 90 different areas including intelligent document processing, and automation of geoscience and offshore oil drilling operations. Decisions on what to automate are made strategically and are premised on targeted business outcomes for either quality, time to market, business agility or innovation for new business models.
  22. Sculpting Change Themes Decision Intelligence • How It's Used Today: Product- centric organizations can create a competitive edge in strategic product decisions by using decision intelligence to analyze competitor strategies and evaluate historic decisions. AI Engineering • How It's Used Today: Unity Health Hospital in Toronto recognizes that AI credibility is critical for acceptance by its physicians. Its fusion teams work to build trust by showing physicians the reliability of AI results — and the gaps.
  23. Distributed Enterprise Thanks a lot COVID! • Employees needed to rapidly shift to working remotely and needed different tools and increased flexibility. Consumers Want Easier Access • Consumers aren’t as available via the traditional physical methods and also want things delivered to them quickly, remotely, and at their leisure.
  24. Total Experience • How It's Used Today: Fidelity Spire uses a total experience approach in its financial services. Analytics and AI learn client behaviors to proactively respond to a client’s next action and to create realistic training simulations for staff. Unified identity services help clients move easily through self-service onboarding and provide integration to the advisor’s view, across multiple touchpoints.
  25. Generative AI • We commonly understand AI as something to produce an answer, conclusion, or recommendation. • Generative AI takes sample data and makes new, original, and realistic outputs. How It's Used Today: The U.K. Financial Conduct Authority has used generative AI to create synthetic payment data, from 5 million records of real payment data. The synthetic dataset will be used to create new fraud models without revealing individuals’ data.
