Technology trends for 2020
We have come a long way from when people barely could perform any task digitally, be it communication or simply paying their utility bills. Within the time span of 10 years, we have service applications like Uber, Food Panda, Online Banking and others to make our daily life tasks much more feasible.
The year 2020 brings a whole new era of amazing topÂ technology trends which can drastically change the way we live. Letâ€™s shed some light on some new benefits and opportunities.
Hyper automation takes task automation to the next level, bringing together several components of process automation, integrating tools and technologies that boost the automation capability.
Hyper-automation involves advanced technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning to automate tasks in a way that is more effective than traditional automation abilities. The trend is doing well with RPA (Robotic Process Automation) but the immense potential is yet to be explored while integrating its AI, OCR, and other technologies.
Multi-experience has changed the way we interact with the digital devices today, with a shift from two-dimensional interfaces to a much more dynamic, multi-modal sort of interface which enables the user to immerse in the interacting interface.
The immersive experiences use augmented reality, virtual reality, mixed reality, and several multiple sensing technologies. Today, MR, VR, and AR are rapidly changing how people perceive the digital world, and this era is likely to see much further progress which can be a game-changer in the world of technology.
Human Enhancement (Human Augmentation)
Human augmentation involves applications of advanced technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence to drastically amplify the automation work for humans. This augmentation is the right technology to increase human capabilities both physically and cognitively.
Some companies have already put forward innovative applications such as devices that can be used in industries, or on the battlefield. We already have witnessed widespread use of smart devices, wearables. These will be further enhanced to increase everyday work productivity and human ability.
Democratization of Technology
The democratization of technology refers to the process by which access to technology becomes more accessible to more and more people. Having said that, access to advanced technology and business expertise is easier than never before regardless of oneâ€™s eligibility or occupation.
The Internet has played a key role in the democratization of knowledge, its arguably the most important innovation in the trend so far â€“ enabling to purchase high-end products and learn new developments. The latest technologies and enhanced user-experience will enable those outside the industries to make the most out of technological services and products.
Edge computing is a computing topology in which the source of information is close to the consumers of this information, which results in rapid information processing, content collection, and delivery.
This also drastically reduces latency. According to experts, edge computing will be widespread across virtually all industries as edge computing is empowered with modern computing resources and data storage capability. Various edge devices such as drones, robots, vehicles and other systems will likely benefit further from edge computing.
Many new evolving technologies such as hyper-automation, human augmentation is bringing a change in business methods. However, these technologies open gates to many possible security threats and loopholes.
Future AI securityAI security might consider incorporating the protection of AI-powered systems and machine learning models which will enhance security defense. The security systems will utilize machine learning to understand the patterns to detect threats and automate the processes of the security system â€“ anticipating incoming AI-powered attacks, identifying through algorithms and neutralize the threat.
