@razerh0 I know but this is a late answer, but I want to answer this:
For me the future of IT would be the pursuit of quantifying everything, from water temperature using IoT to targeting audience for advertisement using Machine Learning. The quantification allows us to create a better and accurate result and provide a way for robots to interact more since computer are great at calculating but not reading emotions. Companies will also face more challenges on privacy issues because some people do not want to have their data used. I also predict that our lifestyles will be get disrupted more thanks to startups. Drones will be a part of our lives more, too.

However, while I predict IT will have a better future, I am afraid that the future of sustainability will be worse. I noticed that people are getting less aware about the environment especially in developing countries.

For my personal opinion, I want to discover more about "quantifying human values." While this sounds crazy since each person has different attitude, I realized that humans have behavior patterns, but the patterns are often obscured by stereotypes and other factors, usually because of cultural difference.

@erictleung a new blog in R? Nice.
@albert2309 "quantifying human values" seems an ambitious task.

The rising of Bots

Now banks providing chat services that are becoming "intelligent". Here an example, in partnership with IBM:

For some time considered as in decline and almost neglected by companies as old-fashion or inadequate technology, (Instant) Messaging and its many mutations have enjoyed a revival and with the time have become a pervasive way of communication. It is and it will probably continue to be an important target for the application of Data Mining, Machine Learning and AI in the many days to come.

One topic I already suggested here for data scraping and analysis:

I did a first draft for analysing extinction trends precisely for amphibians (including frogs and toads):
http://evaristoc.github.io/viz_exer/endangered_amphibia/

I studied biology as first major at uni, with interest in evolution theory. If the current trends maintain I am afraid there is a big risk of mass extinctions in the next years: large groups of phyla that will disappear forever. We don't still feel the consequences of that phenomenon, but we will...

I advise to go to the zoo or go for a safari before it is too late... If you are into plants, go to an herbarium: plants are also on threat.
