5 trends to look for in 2017

With the new year comes the predictions. However, this year, instead of trying to predict what will happen, we prefer to take aim at what we see will be the top major trends in the visual space. We limited ourselves at five in an effort to be succinct and we picked those that will affect people more broadly.  In no particular order, here they are: Images as a source of comprehension We can now comfortably have computers tell us what is depicted in photos or videos.
