A Review of 2018 Durable Energy Trends
Durable energy trends, such as rapid advances in technology and evolving customer expectations and goals, shaped the energy landscape in 2018 and will continue to do so in 2019.
There are many solutions that have entered the energy market that are based on some level of AI or that are enhanced by AI. At our parent company Exelon, our generation facilities are leveraging AI to better predict failure and optimize when to schedule maintenance.
This is important because the transportation sector is one of the largest contributors to carbon emissions, accounting for almost 30% of total emissions in the United States.1 The benefits of electrification include zero tailpipe emissions, reduced dependence on fossil fuels and lower maintenance costs.
In addition, the ability to store energy within batteries and transfer that energy for use in an emergency or market event offers significant benefit in terms of resiliency.
Tax incentives and subsidies have helped propel much of the industry to date, but for mainstream adoption to occur, technological improvements must continue, especially as it relates to expensive batteries.

Top 4 enterprise tech trends to watch in 2019
If 2018 was the year of the data breach, the thinking among IT pros is that this will be the year companies take concrete steps to prevent future breaches.
In fact, a recent @IDGTechTalk poll found privacy and security to be the top enterprise tech issue for 2019 (45 percent), followed by artificial intelligence (30 percent), cloud computing (16 percent), and blockchain (9 percent).
“2018 was the year of, ‘Oh, God, data breach is everywhere!’ 2019 will hopefully be the year of, ‘Well, this is what we're going to do about it!’ Brent Kirkpatrick, founder of Intrepid Net Computing and a computer security researcher, agreed, saying that in 2018 business people finally started to realize anyone can be hacked.
“Though these aren’t new technology trends — blockchain and the cloud led conversations throughout 2018 — how businesses utilize these tech tools for their operational security will likely transition dramatically,” she wrote.
For me, 2019 will be the year all these trends converge.” Kirkpatrick added that data privacy regulations are also important — with HIPPA perhaps evolving due to the GDPR regulations that went into effect in 2018.
Climer, however, sees the biggest advances coming from AI-enabled chips that will “increase the speed by which AI can execute programs, enabling improved workload management and predictive analytics,” she wrote in her 2019 technology trends article.
Companies that do implement AI will “get a dose of reality on what AI and machine learning can easily do versus what takes long term, ongoing investment,” said Isaac Sacolick, president and founder of StarCIO and participant in the Twitter chat, in a recent article about tech trends.
In fact, a cloud computing study conducted by IDG Communications in August 2018 found nine out of 10 companies will have some part of their applications or infrastructure in the cloud by 2019;
“Instead of a network manager handling bugs, patching servers, updating software, or monitoring performance, they could instead focus on more strategic technology initiatives;

The coordination of spatial patterning cues and cellular proliferation underlies diverse processes from cancerous growth to reproductive development.
Our transcriptomics study cannot determine if the nodes that we have identified are directly or indirectly regulated by SEU or ANT activity, However, even if these genes are indirectly controlled by SEU and ANT activity, their expression within the developing CMM suggests they may still play a critical functional role during CMM development.
Furthermore, having now identified a set of genes that are enriched for CMM expression we are in a position to study the cis-regulatory elements that support gene expression within the CMM and medial gynoecial domain.
Additionally, we expect that by elucidating the molecular mechanisms of the synergistic action of SEU and ANT upon key transcriptional nodes, we will engender a greater understanding of the molecular underpinnings of non-additivity within transcriptional networks and the complexity of developmental programs.
