Technology has in recent years evolved quite rapidly, and the rate is likely to increase in the coming years. Growing technology results in faster progress and changes, such that even staying current with the trends is becoming a challenge. However, it also makes it a lot easier to get a glance at the feature and predict the trends to expect. Below are some of the top technology trends that are likely to redefine the future.
AI has been around for many years now but has recently been causing a buzz. It directly affects a variety of sectors positively, the reason as to why it has been and will continue to be a trend even in the future. Artificial intelligence is currently used to perform tasks such as speech and facial recognition as well as decision making. Its applications will be a lot more thanks to the developments in some of its branches such as Machine Learning. There is also the possibility of intelligent augmentation coming up, which refers to the next generation of artificial intelligence. It augments the capability of humans to work smarter.
5G refers to the 5th generation of wireless network technology. It will be an upgrade to the existing 4G, which will bring with it numerous benefits. For example, it will allow throughput that is up to a hundred times better, more extensive data volumes, longer battery life, and more reliability. 5G will be critical to a majority of the significant technological innovations that are being envisioned. This is because the innovations will require lower latency and massive data process power.
Zero Trust Cyber Security
Zero Trust refers to a new cybersecurity approach which encompasses a wide range of protocols, technologies, and privacy practices. The models of Zero Trust approve and constrain each connection, user, and data packet independently, enabling better cloud and mobile applications security. The trend will be brought about by the widespread adoption of cloud and mobile computing, which require enterprises to improve cybersecurity.
Quantum computers make use of quantum mechanic for problem-solving, allowing them to solve various problems that today’s computers cannot solve. Unlike the current computers which use binary bits, quantum computers use qubits which can also work as binary bits at the same time. Qubits can offer computing power that is exponentially greater by harnessing the quantum properties of entanglement and superposition.
