The Continued Rise of Blockchain, AI and On-Demand Apps
Our London-based digital marketing agency is keenly up-to-date on current trends in mobile app development in the UK – with a particular focus on the intensifying interest in blockchain, AI or machine learning, and on-demand apps. It’s understood that the blockchain technology market is expected to reach around $20 billion by 2024 – and that milestone wouldn’t surprise us. Developers worldwide are still hoping to capitalise on the decentralised currency platform, mainly by designing the technology to be more intuitive and accessible to the layperson and potential investors.
Blockchain in conjunction with the Internet of Things (IoT) promises to streamline the way apps operate by accelerating transactions, lowering risk, and reducing costs on your development project. Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) is a technology you’ll be hearing more of, as well as Ricardian contracts (forms of legal agreement agreed and signed off by both parties involved). These contracts can be transformed into a machine-readable contract that also clearly outlines the business objectives. The good news is that it’s handy for activities around payment and financial transactions.
Thankfully, you can easily hire an expert in mobile app development in the UK to design and develop your application’s use of technologies like blockchain and IoT. Machine learning can do wonders by giving you valuable data and real-time analytics. Chatbots are certain to claim a more integral position in the deployment of AI technology; in coming years they will steadily evolve into virtual assistants that do a convincing job of making you feel like you’re talking to a real person. We still haven’t discussed the increasing popularity of mobile wallets, Augmented Reality or Virtual Reality.
After years of website designing in London, we’ve never seen such rapid progress in consumer technology – and we want to make sure you stay ahead of the curve. We’re seeing a sharply increased interest in how to develop on-demand apps (like the famous app- based taxi services). As for AI itself, research group IDC estimates that the market will stand at $40 billion next year. The healthcare and manufacturing sectors are aiming to improve efficiency using AI, thanks to the greater accuracy and ability to capture and record real- time events. Other fields need to catch up.
