The year 2020 has successfully captured a moment or two in history when it comes to technology breakthroughs. From the rise of personal assistants to self-learning in robotics, technological trends this year were rather evolutionary.
These developments are not only captivating in its own right but can be further used to guide actions on different domains and industries. Some of these succession of small steps towards development is expected to puncture into quantum leaps in the coming future:
Artificial intelligence is a term loosely thrown in every random table conversation, but the magnitude of change it can bring is still not completely known. We have been able to put AI into use in various vectors through learning, simulation, real-world combination, and curiosity-driven explorations leading to significant outcomes.
The technology shows real potential in solving real-world problems v/s building a system that should learn to solve a talk from square one.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is credited as the new technological revolution in the forthcoming years. Bringing a new ecosystem that not only collects data, but transfers it to other devices, conspicuously interprets that data, and makes real-time decisions is what IOT is all about. With the increasing use of these IoT-enabled devices, the development is expected to grow exponentially.
The Internet of Things (IoT) and advanced data analytics are generating better problem solving and building performance, with these technologies accomplishing quick movement of people through better devices, buildings, or even efficiently transporting people in vehicles.
Nestling projects and hype in the previous years, augmented reality is said to have great commercial viability. Working on the lines of Artificial Intelligence, operations of augmented reality will provide visual analytics and solutions.
Both virtual and augmented realities together worked in developing industries ranging from safety enforcement to social media platforms, etc.
Smart Sensor Technology
Looking at the nanotechnology, smart sensor technology becomes more robust through other emerging technologies such as Interne of Things (IoT). The industries that leverage its inputs are wide ranging. Smart sensor technology brings customized outputs, and provides interpretive data that significantly improves the capability and performance of the existing sensor system. The technology is expected to serve areas like medicine, consumer products, communication devices, home sensors, and transportation.
When we look forward towards the future of technology innovations and automation, the possibilities are ever expanding. With such technology trends accelerating expeditiously, they are expected to reign not just the tech-sphere but our multiple spheres. These trends will be the perfect use case for many of the next decade’s emerging technology.
