Top technology trends to watch for

Faster networking technologies, such as 5G, are allowing computing systems to accelerate the creation or support of real-time applications, such as video processing and analytics, self-driving cars, Artificial Intelligence and robotics. And that’s just the start.

Technology trends – Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is already known for its superiority in image and speech recognition, navigation apps, smartphone personal assistants, ride-sharing apps and much more. AI allows business owners to provide a more personalised experience to their customers. As well as analysing vast data more efficiently, AI can quickly identify patterns in the information – such as past buying history, buying preferences and other common threads.

Technology trends – Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

Like AI, RPA is another technology that is automating jobs. RPA is the use of software to automate business processes such as interpreting applications, processing transactions, dealing with data, and even replying to emails. In other words, RPA automates repetitive tasks that people used to do.

Technology trends – edge computing

Cloud computing is now mainstream, with major players Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform dominating the market. The adoption of cloud computing is still growing, as more and more businesses migrate to a cloud solution. We’re hearing more about ‘edge’ computing. At a basic level, ‘edge’ computing brings computation and data storage closer to the devices where it’s being gathered, rather than relying on a central location that can be thousands of kilometres away. This is done so that data, especially real-time data, does not suffer lag issues that can affect an application’s performance. In addition, businesses can save money by having the processes done locally, reducing the amount of data that needs to be processed in a centralised or cloud-based location.

Technology trends – Quantum computing

The revenues for the global quantum computing market are projected to surpass $2.5 billion by 2029. Quantum computing is a form of computing that takes advantage of quantum phenomena like superposition and quantum entanglement. Instead of bits, which conventional computers use, a quantum computer uses quantum bits – known as qubits. This means that a computer using qubits can store an enormous amount of information and uses less energy doing so than a regular computer.

Technology trends – Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality

Virtual Reality, or VR, immerses the user in an environment while Augmented Reality, or AR, enhances their environment. Although primarily used for gaming, we can expect these technologies to be further integrated into our lives. VR and AR have enormous potential in training, education, entertainment, marketing, and even rehabilitation following injury.
