Technology is constantly changing. Certain trends disappear while others gain traction as big brands invest in or industries integrate them. The pace of change is breath-taking and it is essential for businesses to keep abreast of the latest trends in technology to ensure they can benefit from them and avoid getting left behind.
Artificial intelligence is a booming technology trend. It is being used in a wide range of business applications, including speech and image recognition, navigation apps, smart assistants, and automation. This trend will see greater use in the future as advances in technology and programming enable it to be more widely accessible and affordable to implement.
The next technology trend to be watched is blockchains and distributed ledgers. This super-secure way of storing and Authenticating data could transform many business processes. For instance, it’s being embraced by the healthcare sector for its ability to facilitate secure transactions.
Biotechnology is another area that is in the midst of disruption. It is being powered by AI as well as automation and DNA sequencing. Gene-therapies, hyperpersonalized medications and genetically-based suggestions on exercise and food are all possible. Businesses must evaluate their bQ or biological quotient and decide if they should incorporate these new technologies into their existing R&D or collaborate with science-based start-ups.
Drones and unmanned aircrafts (UAV) is another trend you should be aware of. These devices enable businesses to collect data and information in remote or inaccessible areas and can help cut down on the amount of downtime and expenses.
