Emerging Information Technologies in the 21st Century
Engineering and technology play an essential role in the economy of a nation and it had contributed immensely in enhancing and advancing the overall wellbeing of humanity. It is the bedrock for innovation and creativity in entrepreneurship and local content development. This study is aimed at investigating some of the core emerging technologies in information engineering in the twenty first century. In this research work, a concise review of these cutting edge technologies were investigated to aid researchers who are interested in these fields to ascertain how these technologies works: blockchain, the internet of things (IoT), machine learning (ML), big data analytic (BDA), embedded system, mechatronics and robotics, cloud computing, and cyber-physical systems (CPS) are presented along with their respective features with some sample implementation to demonstrate how some of the technology works. This would aid researchers in this area of study.
