Top 5 Technology Trends for 2020

Modern technology has been evolving at such a breakneck speed that the trends of last year become a thing of the past next year before you know it. And, we have come a long way through this evolution of technology. There was a time when 3G felt mind-blowing, and now 5G has become a reality. We have gone past being fascinated by talking robots and reached a stage where AI (artificial intelligence)and machine learning is being used in every sector. As trends come and go each year, and make our lives a little easier, let’s look at what’s trending in technology for 2020.

1. The widespread usage of artificial intelligence

Five out of six people use the AI services in some form or the other each day, be it through smartphone assistants, streaming services, or navigation apps. In 2020, we are going to see a greater adaption of this technology because it’s the basis of automation, which every industry is striving for. This widespread use of AI will also create more jobs in programming, development, testing, maintenance, and support.

2. Increase in the deployment of machine learning

Machine learning will be deployed in more number of industries this year, as the demand for deep learning, natural language processing, and neural networks are increasing. It will make greater forays in the areas of network intrusion detection, real-time ads, and web searches. In fact, within two years, the machine learning market is going to hit the $8.81 billion mark.

3. The role of Robotic Process Automation

Robotic Process Automation is another tech that is helping to automate jobs. It is a kind of software that helps to automate the business processes, like transaction processing, interpreting the applications, data handling, and even automated replying to emails.With the use of this latest technology, more than forty-five percent of work can be automated, which is exactly what business across sectors are aiming for this year.

4. The steady emergence of edge computing

Cloud computing is still getting increasingly adopted by businesses, but it cannot be called an emerging trend anymore in 2020. Instead, edge computing has come up as the answer to all that cloud computing falls short of.  The ability of edge computing to bypass the usual latency brought by cloud computing while remote processing of time-sensitive data, makes it the trend to watch out for this year and the next.

5. Implementation of blockchain by several industries

Blockchain technology is something that’s beyond cryptocurrencies. It is like a ‘chain’ of data that you can add to, but not change or take away from. 

The inability to change the earlier blocks makes blockchain such a preferred tech choice for several industries. With this technology, a business will not need a third-party to validate or oversee transactions. And that’s it! Those were the top five tech trends that we are going to see more of this year. Only time will tell what innovations these technologies to create the pathways for greater advancements in the years to come.
