Deep tech trends for 2018

Distinguishing Deep Tech innovations is crucial for investors as the business potential is much greater as the underlying technology has been carefully scrutinized and has been tested for considerably longer than just your average tech, therefore, providing a higher quality investment.

Deep Tech looks to solve real-world problems, eg medical devices, AI, drugs that cure diseases and any form of revolutionary technology that has been researched for years.

Deep Tech Trends for 2018:

AI 

Advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) elements will extend this analytical approach to security, as these capabilities become mainstream, adaptive security architecture will become more common as vendors integrate different security functions into single platforms powered by embedded analytics and AI.

This is the perfect area for investment as it can include data preparation integration, algorithm, and training methodology selections & model creation.

Digital Twin

This is a trend that will grow and become deeply rooted in the evolution of the intelligent digital age and mesh the digital technology platforms and application architectures mean that security has to become fluid and adaptive. Security in the IoT environment is particularly challenging. Security teams need to work with application, solution and enterprise architects to consider security early in the design of applications or IoT solutions.  Multilayered security and use of user and entity behavior analytics will become a requirement for virtually every enterprise.

“For every physical asset in the world, we have a virtual copy running in the cloud that gets richer with every second of operational data,” says Ganesh Bell, chief digital officer and general manager of Software & Analytics at GE Power & Water.

Blockchain 

It is predicted that by 2018 the adoption of blockchain into commercial banks will have been implemented by one third. Thailand's future of adopting the blockchain technology by 2018 is being reinforced.

“The adoption of blockchain technology is expected to be widely seen here by 2018, thanks to its capability of transferring valued assets with trustworthiness, transparency, and security.” Bhume Bhumiratana, Bangkok Post.

Adaptive security Architecture

A useful framework to help organizations classify and potential security to ensure that there is a balanced approach to security investments.

Adaptive security architecture provides a deep understanding of engineering systems at a level intended for research on complex engineering systems. It provides a review and extension of what is known about system architecture and complexity from a theoretical point of view while examining the origins of and recent developments in the field. The class considers how and where the theory has been applied and uses key analytical methods proposed.

"The evolution of the intelligent digital mesh and digital technology platforms and application architectures means that security has to become fluid and adaptive. Security in the IoT environment is particularly challenging. Security teams need to work with application, solution and enterprise architects to consider security early in the design of applications or IoT solutions. Multilayered security and use of user and entity behavior analytics will become a requirement for virtually every enterprise." David Cearley is vice president and Gartner Fellow in Gartner Research and is a leading authority on information technology. Mr. Cearley analyzes emerging and strategic business and technology trends and explores how these trends shape the way individuals and companies derive value from technology.

Cloud edge computing 2018

"Edge computing" is a new paradigm in the context of IIoT, 'edge' refers to the computing infrastructure that exists close to the sources of data, for example, industrial machines (e.g. wind turbine, magnetic resonance (MR) scanner, undersea blowout preventers), industrial controllers such as SCADA systems, and time series databases aggregating data from a variety of equipment and sensors. These devices typically reside away from the centralized computing available in the cloud.

One particular Thai startup that is developing a deep tech innovation is 'Juice Innov8'.

JuiceInnov8 is a food biotechnology startup. The company develops a sugar reduction technology with autochthonous non-GM microbes that help create a better & healthier 100% juice with less sugar & lower calories.

JuiceInnov8's biotechnology company gathers microbes from multiple sources which seek to create juices with a significant drop in sugar content. The technology 'SugarDrop' adapted from wine and beer production can conduct the drop in sugar levels without adding water. This innovative Thai tech startup has won a CU Innovation Hub pitching competition this year while also being selected as a member of San Francisco based food and agricultural accelerator Terra. This simple, yet effective food tech creation, with significant global recognition, is a leading example of a successful investment.

If you are intrigued by deep tech, startups and the technology community as a whole, we have the answer:

The Techsauce Global Summit between the 22-23rd of June 2018  is specifically focusing on Deep Tech this year. It is one of the largest gatherings of tech startups both Thai and International, displaying the best in technology inventions and innovations. It's the perfect chance to hear talks from influential, industry speakers while mingling with innovative business owners, creating and driving tech forward.
