By 2018, people could be bidding goodbye to passwords as they will have so-called digital guardians protecting their identities online. The concept of a digital assistant is one of the innovations that IBM predicts will potentially change people’s lives in the next five years. “In five years, each of us could be protected with our own digital guardian that will become trained to focus on the people and items it is entrusted with, offering a new level of identity theft protection. Security will assimilate contextual, situational and historical data to verify a person’s identity on different devices,” it said. A digital guardian can also be trained to tell the difference between “normal or reasonable activity” and advise the owner if it senses something unusual.
