IEEE Computer Society Grades its 2016 Technology Predictions – Gets a B+
Capability-based Security Lags Behind 2016 Predictions
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., December 7, 2016 – At the end of 2015, the IEEE Computer Society released its technology predictions for 2016, bullish on the future of 5G, virtual and augmented reality, nonvolatile memory, cyber physical systems, data science, capability-based security, and more. Today, the Computer Society graded itself on its future view and came out looking pretty good.
According to Dejan Milojicic, past president, IEEE Computer Society, “Everyone loves to predict the future of technology but we seldom get the chance to hold them accountable. We decided to change that and rate our own 2016 predictions in preparation for the new 2017 predictions coming out next week. We failed in one 2016 case – capability-based security has lagged substantially behind our expectations – but we succeeded with varying degrees of accuracy in all the other categories. The chart we put together shows our successes and misses.”
Watch for IEEE Computer Society’s 2017 technology predictions coming December 14.
