The rise of the metaverse and artificial intelligence (AI) have changed the way individuals and businesses experience all kinds of content. Who wouldn’t want to live in a world where robots can vacuum and mop your floor, control your lights, or even start your vehicle. The future has undoubtedly arrived and will continue to change our lives. The team at Uwannawat IT Mornington outline the top IT trends for 2023.
Artificial intelligence – or AI – will continue to evolve
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, believes that artificial intelligence (AI) will surpass the abilities of human brains within a few years.
“We are headed toward a situation where AI is vastly smarter than humans. I think that time frame is less than five years from now,” said Musk in a recent interview for the New York Times.
AI is the imitation of human skills such as learning and problem solving by a computer. We use smart algorithms every time we search the internet, shop online, navigate as we travel, choose how we entertain ourselves, manage our schedules and carry out countless tasks. Love it or loathe it, AI has entered our everyday lives in the form of facial ID recognition, chat bots in websites, recommendations in entertainment apps like Spotify or YouTube, and so on. The technology is being used by many businesses in a variety of ways – from customer service chatbots to automatic ad buying to maximise marketing returns. AI is expected to become even more important in 2023 with businesses of all sizes using it to improve efficiency and better understand and serve customers.
The metaverse can be described as “a more immersive digital world.” Mark Zuckerberg believes the future of the metaverse will feature virtual and augmented reality (VR / AR), while creators of web3 platforms like Decentraland think it will be also about decentralisation and blockchains. A blockchain is a system in which a record of transactions made in bitcoin or another cryptocurrency is maintained across several computers that are linked in a peer-to-peer network. In 2023, we will begin to see the metaverse in both mobile and post-mobile. We will still interface with it from wherever we are in the world and on whatever devices we like, however the default won’t always be a smartphone. New ways we access, experience and interact with content will include headsets and smart glasses.
Ever-evolving digitally editable world
Today, we can edit things in the digital world in a way that influences the real world.Take digital twins for example. Racing teams in Formula 1 create digital twins of the race car and use the digital world to test the car in virtual wind tunnels and via digital simulations. This allows them to change components of the car in the digital world until they are optimised before they 3D print these components for the real-world vehicle. The pinnacle of this technology is the manipulation of living organisms – editing the genetic information responsible for the development and functioning of plants, animals or humans. In the future, children could be made immune to illnesses that their parents are susceptible to. Crops that are resistant to pests and diseases could be developed.
In 2023, the focus will continue to grow on enabling more efficient and complex machine-to-machine interactions. Today, we are accustomed to filling our workspaces with smart tools and applications but we often run into problems when machines have difficulty communicating. This is often due to different platforms and operating systems. In 2023, we will see further work on the development of global standards and protocols that devices can use to talk to each other. This means that they will work more effectively and be capable of assisting us with a broader range of tasks.
