Are you into gadgets and love them way too much? Are you the person who always searches for new technological developments on YouTube and Google? In other words, are you a futurist?
If your answer is yes to any of these questions, then let me tell you – you have landed at the right place! Technology has developed and transformed humongous in the past few decades; the fun part is that it’s still evolving. Have we ever thought that from a stereo recorder, we could transcend to AirPods or Bluetooth earbuds, from talking on a landline phone to owning a multi-purpose smartphone that can do anything you name? We have come a long way – thanks to technology, and there is still a long way to go.
So, to feed your increasing curiosity, today, we will discuss the trending technologies set to conquer 2023!
The AI Dominance
In 2023, artificial intelligence will become the real deal in organizations. No-code AI, with its easy drag-and-drop interfaces, will help businesses to leverage its power to create more intelligent products and services. It will change the dynamics of the e-commerce business as contactless autonomous shopping and delivery will take over the market. Several retailers will use AI to manage and automate the complex inventory management processes that will set the bar high for other industries and verticals.
Parts of the Metaverse Will Become Real
Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) will continue to advance, and collaborative platforms will emerge for digital projects. Metaverse will revolutionise the internet by creating learning spaces where one can work, play, and socialise on a persistent platform. A leading corporate company has already created its metaverse to virtually carry out HR-related tasks, such as onboarding, training, etc.
Progress in Web3
As organisations focus on making more decentralised products and services, blockchain technology will also advance significantly in 2023. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) will become more usable and practical, giving you access to backstage experiences for your concert tickets. This will also help us decentralise data storage and encrypt that data using blockchain technology.
The Unification of the Digital and Physical World
We will be witnessing an emerging bridge between the digital and physical worlds in 2023. There are two components of this unification, i.e., digital twin technology and 3D printing. Digital twins are virtual simulations of real-world processes, products, or operations that can be used to test new ideas in a safe digital environment. After testing in the virtual world, engineers can modify and edit components, then create them in the real world using 3D printing technology.
Quantum computing is the concept of using subatomic particles to create new ways of processing and storing information. Currently, the trend around us is to develop quantum computing at a large scale. This step is expected to bring us computers capable of operating a trillion times faster than the fastest traditional processors available today. Although there is a drawback that quantum computing at scale has the potential to break the encryption of other nations, businesses, security systems, and more, still several countries are investing billions of dollars into this idea.
Adoption of Green Technology
Despite all forms of progress and growth, we are facing a climate crisis due to increased carbon emissions in the past few decades. 2023 can bring hope for the planet as we develop green hydrogen, a new clean-burning energy source that produces close to zero greenhouse gas emissions. We will also see progress in developing decentralised power grids that distribute power worldwide with reduced carbon emissions.
Robots Will Become More Human
In 2023, we will see robots becoming more human-like in appearance and capability. These robots will be used in the real world as event greeters, bartenders, concierges, and companions for older adults. They will also perform complex tasks in factories and warehouses as they work alongside humans in manufacturing and logistics.
Wrapping it Up
We have heard that time and tide wait for none, and it will not wait for us to cope with the emerging new technology. With so much AI and machine learning penetrating the environment around us, we must stay updated with the current trends to utilise the services to the optimum potential and secure the best future for us in the coming days.
