5 Technology Trends that are about to dominate 2022
The sheer volume of data that is to be analyzed at any given moment and in any given project has, over time, grown to exceed our abilities. For this reason, we rely on many tech solutions, including those related to automation and sheer data craving. As the solutions slowly grow, increase in ability and intelligence levels rise, the world is slowly entering the fourth industrial revolution. Far from a temporary fad, here are the top 5 technology trends that will dominate 2022.
Top 5 Tech Trends for 2022
The increase in computational power worldwide means that more solutions can be powered using this technology. The wake of the COVID-19 lockdown and pandemic has pinpointed the need to further expand existing technologies, provide them with more computational power and significantly increase automation, both online and in the real world. As any good technology essay can testify, the volume of change in the post-pandemic world is higher than anyone anticipated. Here are the technologies that will mark the 2022 period and more:
- AI - Artificial Intelligence,
- VR and AR - Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality,
- 5G -- 5th Generation Broadband Service,
- IoT - Internet of Things, and
- RPA - Robotic Process Automation.
AI - Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence has been around for a while. Existing as a concept for several decades (just watch any old Sci-Fi movie in which robots take over the world), in the past two decades, it has been implemented in banking solutions, especially to track and halt suspicious transactions. AI is now entering every field we know today, from arts, over social network user profiling, all the way to individualized mass production, with mixed feelings and understanding.
VR and AR - Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality
VR and AR have amazing applications in training and in any posts where real-life encounters with some situations would be dangerous, if not life-threatening. VR and AR have applications in training surgeons, pilots, and captains, as well as technicians. Further expansion in the technology could be used to improve the shopping experience, especially in the e-commerce market.
5G - 5th Generation Broadband Service
5G enables a variety of uses for your Internet connection. As 3G and 4G ushered the streaming services to our smartphones and tablets, 5G is expected to take these technologies to the next level. With Great download and upload speeds enabled by 5G, you will be able to download papers written by lord of paper in less than a second. VR and AR in wearable and smart devices are useless without technology fast enough to let them utilize their full potential, i.e., 5G.
IoT - Internet of Things
The Internet of Things - IoT - has been around as a concept for a while. Connecting different devices across the globe, IoT gives access to unprecedented amounts of information and empowers the end-user with abilities such as 24/7 health status monitoring, smart homes, and remote control over appliances and AC units. On a wider scale, the technology further supports the implementation of more renewables into the power grids of the world and a higher balancing capacity of those same grids.
RPA - Robotic Process Automation
Robotic Process Automation relies on the IoT, 5G bandwidth, and an increase in data computation speeds to ensure that some of the jobs done today can be automated. With around 5% of jobs that can be fully automated, the solutions threaten some workplaces. RPA Solutions are still praised, as they can bring about cheaper goods and services to the globe.
The only constant is change, or so it seems. The introduction of the aforementioned technologies means innovation, but at the same time, they improve on the existing technologies or bring to reality concepts that have been around for decades. With the advent of high-speed Internet and an increase in data collection and analysis volumes and speed, the possibilities technology provides in 2022 will soon be surpassed.
