| January 31, 2019

Often, technology trends are difficult to predict accurately because predicting the future itself is extremely difficult. However, we can still speculate on some of the development trends of the technology industry in 2019 from some significant data indicators in 2018.Many people’s understanding of the concept of the technology industry is too specific and narrow. They only regard smartphones, drones, etc. as the technology industry, and the technical trends listed in this article also contain many more complex concepts, such as robotics. Laser transmission of the Internet, decentralized medical record systems, etc., are not the same as those that are commonplace. Even though only half of the listed technology trends are making more progress than they are now, 2018 was bound to be an exciting year.

Ericsson AI: more than a decade of industry leadership

Article | March 26, 2020

Across industries, AI is being used in all manner of ways to increase operational efficiencies, lower costs and improve customer experience. Just use a media streaming platform such as Spotify and Netflix and you can see AI in action, as the algorithms analyze your user behavior, and that of people with similar behavior, to recommend new TV shows, films, and music. But these examples, impressive as they are, solve simple use cases with simple AI algorithms. What is AI doing in more complex industries, with more complex challenges and use cases to solve, where much more is at stake? The financial sector is one that comes to mind, transportation another. But perhaps more complex than both of these: communications. Connecting everyone, connecting everything, everywhere, at any time, on demand, is an enormously complex task, with equally complex infrastructure and technology. AI helps to solve the challenges along the way, but it doesn’t do so with one broad, general brush. There is no one-size-fits-all general AI that will solve all problems.

HOW REACT NATIVE APP DEVELOPMENT WORKS UNDER THE HOOD

Article | August 10, 2020

In this article, I’ll explain how React Native works to give you an understanding of whether it is the right choice for your software product. By describing the pros, cons, and capabilities of React Native, I’ll reveal nuances of this technology that we faced during cross-platform app development.It will be nothing new if I say that React Native is a framework for building cross-platform apps. The uniqueness of React Native is a single JavaScript codebase used for both platforms. React Native compiles the JavaScript code to native components, thus, using platform-specific APIs and modules. By using such native components as Images, Text, and View as building blocks, software developers can create new ones.

Article | August 11, 2020

The revolution of the public cloud has irrevocably changed the role of the CISO in the modern enterprise. The cloud is the biggest enabler in a generation and is a massive opportunity for enterprises to start innovating at speed and scale. But only if they bring their security with them on the journey! But the pace of change in the new world can feel unsettling, so it is not uncommon for CISOs and security teams to want to stick to older models and to double down on familiar ways of working.
