Technology is transforming at such a rapid pace that it can be difficult to keep up, but keeping pace with advancements in technology can broaden our horizons, make life easier and open doors. The trends in technology that seem to hold the most importance right now are:
Artificial Intelligence (AI), which mimics human intelligence to perform tasks including complex pattern and speech recognition, medical diagnosis and forecasting; and has become vital in certain career fields including data research, engineering, business development and medicine.
Similar to AI, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is used to automate daily tasks.
Data Science is useful within business performance and customer acquisition and retention capacities.
No longer limited to gaming, Virtual Reality (VR) is also used for armed forces training, as well as assisting doctors during surgery.
You’ve obviously heard of the Internet, but how about the “Internet of Things (IoT)”? IoT references connected networks that share information, such as technology including your Smart Watch that shares info with your medical professionals and the apps that enable you to remotely lock the doors or change the temperature in your home.
Blockchain is an electronic ledger that records and shares transactions and is used to verify, secure and track electronic currencies like Bitcoin.
Edge Computing can reduce the processes within long-distance communication, thereby enhancing speed. Specifically, it has enhanced The Cloud and is becoming more popular within the healthcare, retail and manufacturing industries.
Plus, Intelligence apps, including voice assistants such as Siri and Alexa, are expanding the job market.
