Do-it-yourself security systems will cause some shifts in the residential security market as more than two million broadband homes will have a self-monitored system by year's end. According to research by Parks Associates, 23% of the self-monitored systems are fee-based with an average cost this year of $9 per month while 22% also include home control. By 2024, the average monthly fees will slide down to $8.50 while 34% will have home control add-on services. Home security systems seemed cutting edge when they were first introduced, but now the market is flooded with options that are available from the likes of ADT, AT&T, Ring, Comcast, and even chain hardware stores. In order to better cash-in on home security services, Parks said the industry needs to find new drivers for the homes that currently don't have such services.

Billions of dollars have gone into the development of Autonomous Vehicle (AV) technology, with some manufacturers slowly introducing more sophisticated cruise control, braking and stability systems, driver alerts and other features, and others who are "going the extra mile" with full-on automation of vehicles including delivery trucks and shuttles within confined geographies (college campuses for example). The forecasts for truly autonomous vehicles interacting on public roads and highways range greatly, and public opinion varies; while drivers understand the benefits, they are also wary of letting go of the wheel, or others letting go of the wheel. Stories in the media, including those about fatal collisions, are not helping. There are no fully autonomous cars and trucks on public roads without at least a human overseer on board, which is prudent given the early nature of the evolution of AVs. Despite what some may perceive as constraints to innovation, an enormous amount of energy, attention and investment is underway in the United States of America, and where public agencies work with the AV "ecosystem," we can expect to see real progress as we head into 2020 making the next decade spurred along by the roll out of 5G networks, more lit fiber and other infrastructure improvements.
For many organizations, automating hundreds or thousands of manual tasks has become a competitive necessity. However the same attributes that make automation so effective also open up organizations to new risks. The reason: Because AI enables a company to remotely manage machines and make them interact with other machines, bad actors could take control of the technology and wreak havoc. Consider the common threats to a computer network: malignant software such as viruses and phishing emails for tricking people into revealing valuable information. If a worker clicks on a malware link and damages his computer on the network, the virus can spread to others.
The fight against financial crime is changing and banks are struggling to keep up. Financial institutions are already losing ground in the adoption of open banking initiatives like PSD2. Coupled with the increasing market demands for compliance and transparency brought on by regulations like the GDPR, it's clear that banks have a lot to deal with. The financial industry is quickly shifting towards real-time payments and instant services, two key aspects of a frictionless customer experience. However, these frameworks present serious challenges to the security side of things – particularly where financial crime is concerned.
