Technology has become an integral part of our life. From waking up in the morning to going to the bed in the night, we are surrounded by different versions of the technology. Everything is done online, even you can buy groceries online or even sell goods online. Today, we are going to talk about future trends in the field of technology by 2020.
1. Facial Recognition
Those who own smartphones, they will be aware of this new trend. Facial recognition gives a facility to unlock your phone by showing your face into the camera. But now we talked about today’s trend. By 2020, we would not just be able to unlock our phone, but will also unlock our car and house with this feature. Today, you have to remember the pin of your ATM card, but with the coming technology, you will be able to withdraw money just by your face.
Voice has played a major role in sharing ideas, thoughts, and opinions. But gone are the days when people use to talk just on mobile phones to communicate with their friends. Now, you can use voice as a major guiding tool to the newly developed IT devices like Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri. Just by providing them the general instructions, the task is done in minutes. This feature will be seen more in the upcoming years of advancement.
3. 5G Technology
It was the year 2009 when 4G was launched. It claimed as one of the highest speed networks. Soon it became popular all over the world. But most of the people are still into the technology of 4G, but little they know that 5G has made an entry into the technology world. Some of you must be aware of the fact that Shanghai has claimed that it has become the world’s first district using 5G coverage and a broadband gigabit network. By 2020 it is assumed that it will soon make a strong place in the market.
4. Artificial Intelligence
You all must be familiar with the concept of Artificial intelligence. If not so, have you seen Alexa or Siri, these are the examples of AI. The advancement in the field of science and technology has also come up with the building of robotics which will form the major part of artificial intelligence. All of the household chores will be handled by the robots by the year 2040. According to the reports of the Gartner, it is predicted that by 2020, AI will itself generate more 2.3 million jobs. More jobs would eventually generally create more revenue that would benefit into the economy at last.
5. Natural Language Processing
It is the most famous trend in technology so far. NLP stands for Natural Language Processing which is a technology that helps computer devices to understand the human language easily. As this concept is new, so there is some slackness in the model, but with the coming technology of NLP, users will be able to talk instructions in their common language of talking. We can’t wait for more for this feature to come.
6. Internet of Things (commonly known as IoT)
This technology is nothing but connecting different devices. It is often named as the new era of the smart home. IoT devices comprise of commodity sensors, control systems, automation and many more. Have you seen some of the products that connect with the internet just like our Tv microwaves and so on? It is just the beginning. It is predicted that there will be around 75 billion connected devices based on the technology.
It is another new trend in the technology world. Automation basically has two branches which are software automation and industrial automation. By the end of 2030, the whole industrial world will be substituted with the automation techniques and tools in order to increase the processing speed and lower down the labor cost. Not only this, software automation has already ruled the digital world by its marvelous creation of digital tools to handle ease the life of the general public. Imagine if you reach home, and just by pressing a button of “watch television” so, by the time you get fresh, your TV automatically turns on, the movie which you want to see starts, your room lights automatically turns off.
8. Blockchain Technology
Blockchain is a simple concept which contains a list of records which are linked using cryptography. In the world of technology, Blockchain has been listed as a topmost technology trend and comprises of digital pieces of information that have created a huge network of information among the leading knowledge providers like Wikipedia, Securities Exchange Commission, Google and many more. It is predicted that by 2020, most of the industries will work on the concept of blockchain.
9. Edge Computing
Basically, edge computing is the technology which helps in storing the information closer instead of sending it to long routes. After some years it will be the most popular trend in the business world. With the coming of IoT devices in the digital world, there has been a lot of pressure to increase the network bandwidth so that data could be transferred to its respective data centers quickly. But, it is because of edge computing that all the computerized algorithms have reached their appropriate places in just a few seconds saving the time and efforts of the human workforce. It is assumed that by 2020, 45% of the data processed by IoT devices will be stored by Edge computing.
10. Prescriptive Analysis
Prescriptive Analysis itself suggests from its name that it is a type of analysis given to a particular situation which is mostly predicted for future. By 2020, it is said that this type of technology will reduce the work of PA by 35%. Can you imagine the work which a PA of an organization used to do now will be done by prescriptive analysis? Mainly banks will use this type of technology for their different functions.
So, these were the top trends of technology that will be in demand by 2020. A day will come when we just have to give instructions and our personalized robots will do our whole work only if the pace of technology continues to grow that way.
