Before I start with the Top 10 technologies to trend in 2020. You know technology is growing immensely since the 21st century. Thus, you will be checking all time to know what is new in the tech industries even though you can’t afford to buy some gadgets, but still, you want to see them, get the information.
Usually, when they say technology, most times our mind goes straight to top tech giants like Facebook, Google, Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, Honda and the rest of them, maybe you mention them in the comment box.
In this case, I will show you the top 10 technologies that is going to change the world from 2020 henceforth.
10. Cloud computing
Microsoft defined cloud computing as the delivery of computing services – servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, intelligence and moreover the Internet (“the cloud”) to offer faster innovation, flexible resources and economies of scale.
Cloud computing and its similarity edge computing is dominating the world of online activities like sending off an email, playing games, editing documents, watching movies, listening to music, or storing pictures. It is preferred over a hard drive.
So now, how is data stored and protected? All of these are done on cloud computing. You can easily create apps and services, stream videos online.
9. Internet of Things
In addition to the top 10 technologies on my list is the Internet of Things. By the way, some of our devices have a network connection, such as, cars, phones, including our home appliances that have inbuilt software that can interact and exchange data.
Apart from the popular devices that can access the internet like phones, laptops, tablets. There are some of the other IoT devices that can also be used to monitor and control mechanical, electrical and electronic systems used in various types of buildings.
In public and private, industries, institutions, or residential, our home appliances have this technology embedded in them making it be controlled remotely and monitored. This technology trend can help in our current education system.
Robotics involves the branches of engineering like computer science, mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, information engineering applying the concept of design, manufacture and operation of robotics. This can also be said to be mechatronics.
In most tech industries, there’s a huge application of robots. These machines are made to substitute humans in some heavy duties and dangerous environments where there’s a high risk of accidents. Robots make work easier and faster.
Many of these robots replicate humans by walking, lifting and sometimes talking. Some are made to carry out giants task which humans may not perform perfectly on their power. For instance, drones, design of body parts of cars, jets, computer hardware. Higher robots that perform move car parts to their production units.
Cryptocurrency is becoming rampant, it is used to record transactions, most people now know what is bitcoin.
It is now trusted by many because of how our data is securely stored in the database.
Blockchain is now considered a type of payment rail which bitcoin adopts.
Blockchain technology is used to create a permanent, public, transparent ledger system for compiling data on sales, tracking digital use and payments to content creators, such as wireless users.
6. Virtual Reality
This is a very complex technology that lets you experience things in virtual form, making it look real.
Students adopt this technology in some practical classes where there’s enough space, maybe to operate a medical surgery on a living creature. This environment is usually controlled or projected to generate realistic images.
Virtual reality is applied in gaming, robots, medical laboratories which is very effective on a 5G network connection
Augmented Reality is a type of virtual reality technology that blends what the user sees in their real surroundings with digital content generated by computer software. The additional software-generated images with the virtual scene typically enhance how the real surroundings look in some way.
5. Quantum computing
Quantum computing is in the top 10 because it’s a superior computing system which uses qubits which can be zero and one at the same time.
There are a number of physical objects that can be used as qubits, a single photon and nucleus or an electron.
How does this work? or what is this quantum computing?
As we all know that normal computers use bits for processing. But in terms of qubits, computing is smooth and easy.
Computers don’t really know how to reprogram themselves, they will have trials to see what’s better but still end up error. But quantum computers have the ability to reprogram itself, it finds the best possible program to make itself the best.
4. Self-driving technologies
Vehicles made it to the top 10 technologies!
Over the years, automobile industries like Google, Uber, Tesla, Nissan, and other major automakers, researchers, and technology companies are showing how good they are in the business hence, using the internal map of surroundings, beams, high powers, sonar, lasers, radars as part of this success.
This car uses high definition navigation systems to ensure they follow the right route always without hitting itself on walls, passing vehicles.
3. Big data
Data is increasing, industries need modified data processing software compared to the old types. The complexity of data sets such as data storage, analytics, sharing, visualizing is too large to deal with.
Many industries rely on big data so as to get an insight into their customers, marketing campaigns.
IDC has made predictions that by 2025, there will be 163 zettabytes of data.
That’s too huge. But who will have the big data?
2. Smart cities
A digitalized environment in which human Data are collected.
Maybe from mobile devices, hospitals, schools come together in a smart space to create a more immersive, interactive and automated experience for a target set of people and industry scenarios.
Traffic and transportation systems can give information, power plants, water supply networks monitor water leaks, shortage of water in the environment, waste management can detect when refuse bins are full.
Information network, schools, libraries, hospitals, and other community services can be monitored by state officials. Others sensors can detect when an accident occurs when there’s pollution whether air or noise and river level to avoid a flood.
Smart connected cities is a big technology that needs to be in the top 10 technologies to trend in 2019 because it understands human environment using data collection systems, therefore, providing a free flow of an environment.
This is the number one technology in my list of top 10 technologies that will trend the world in 2020.
Artificial intelligence has changed the world with its predictive technology. AI is found in our smartphones especially the camera, in our cars, smartwatches, even in some companies.
Machines now replicate humans, it can do what we do, at the same time, it thinks. Detects changes in the environment and takes any possible action to achieve its aim.
AI will be one of the technologies to dominate 2020, there will be an advanced change in technology in most of our industries, hospitals, banking, manufacturing. Series of ideas and researches that were made but doubted are now becoming real.
AI is relevant to any task. Playing games like chess, autonomous vehicles (such as drones, self-driving cars), search engines, online assistants.
