A small part of everything we used to call "artificial intelligence." However, the neural network does the lion’s share of the work. The above mentioned copyright protection is achieved thanks to this technology.
The principle of operation is to search for matches and dependent relationships, as well as monitoring the weights (if the action is successful, the scales go in his direction, using this experience in the future and vice versa).
The first implementation of the technology in the project is the zero point. A small flaw in the neural network is that it needs time for “self-learning”. In other words, it must perform the actions to remember the correct ones and use them in the future. But such a principle gradually eliminates the possibility of an error.
How to implement a neural network in the field of web development? One option is to “show” thousands of finished projects and feedback about them. Thus, it will understand what is good and what is bad and will be able to create its own website. According to this principle, the neural network:
- wrote the music, listening to world bestsellers;
- painted a picture, analyzing the masterpieces of fine art;
- wins professionals in challenging games like Dota 2 and GO.
If you follow the trend of using AI, you should first of all turn to the neural network. It will be the basis for most web development solutions.
Internet of things
An extensive concept that is undeniably applicable in web development. The Internet has a huge impact on all areas of life. Almost everyone depends on the Internet in one way or another. Business organizations, service providers and other corporations cannot exist without it at all today.
The idea that the use of the intellectual potential of devices and their sensors will bring “business” to a new level is gaining more and more popularity.
Continuous interaction of technology and applications will play a key role in service delivery and web development.
As seen in the Statista infographic, by 2020 almost 31 billion devices will be connected to the Internet. This has a huge impact on further trends in web development. Indeed, with the growth of this indicator, the efficiency of device synchronization increases.
Today, there are not so many websites, smartphones and applications that have IoT integration. Among them are Google Home and Uber. For example, you can call the car through the application, and confirm the completion of the trip with voice commands on arrival home.
But the concept remains the center of attention. Web development is moving into a “new dimension”, of which the Internet of things will be a part.
Single Page Applications (SPA)
Not a new trend that is not losing popularity yet. Typically, this technology is used to create websites that interact with the user by dynamically rewriting the entire page, instead of fully loading new pages from the server.
Somehow this principle can be compared with the development of computer games. The computer has at once all the information about the gaming environment. However, only the part in which the camera is turned is displayed on the screen. All that "outside the lens" has no appearance. But when transferring the camera, some textures are loaded, while others are cleared from memory.
In the case of sites, the common code will be permanently extracted, displaying key elements of the service (navigation bar, background, registration window, etc.), and the rest will be loaded and added to the page as necessary (in response to user actions).
To understand the technology, I propose to read the Hacker Rank report on the development of developer skills and upcoming programming trends.
This approach will avoid interrupting user interaction between consecutive pages. SPA spared from difficult navigation and swirling menus. They perfectly adapt to any device. That’s why they will be relevant in 2020.
Static site generators
Motion design is rapidly developing web development. It increases the interactivity factor, providing the user with a more comfortable way to get information. But despite its effectiveness, it is not always appropriate. That’s why I want to draw attention to the static site generators.
Development of such sites from scratch takes time that programmers can spend on learning new technologies and designers new trends. But in some cases it’s preferable to make static web pages:
- postal services;
- news portals;
- second-hand stores;
- government sites.
In all these cases, the user needs the highest speed of loading text data. Adding dynamics will slow performance. Moreover, the Motion design of such sites will not bring special benefits.
Therefore, statics comes to counterbalance animation trends. Developers are easier to use generators like Hugo and Jekyll, making the necessary edits after generation. This saves time by allowing you to create a website in 24 hours.
This technology has been added to most applications and sites for a very long time. But its quality left much to be desired. Many bots could give incorrect or not at all relevant answers.
Already mentioned neural network has made its own adjustments. Now chat bots are not limited to the preloaded base. They can learn by remembering the most unusual treatment. This makes it much easier for users to work with the site and with the application.
Some bots can not just answer questions, but even perform some functions. For example, the bot of a mobile bank can change the credit limit or create a template for paying utility bills (if requested by the user). Thus, the work of applications
becomes much more efficient and faster.
Their popularity is due to such advantages:
- highest performance;
- easy integration of toolboxes;
- high safety of end products.
Among the shortcomings, as a rule, there is only the difficulty in studying. Although Python is characterized by low efficiency for developing mobile applications.
