In just a few months, 2019 is coming to a close. So far, this year has welcomed a lot of new technologies and devices. What is there to look forward in 2020? Which technologies will dominate and define the upcoming year?
Internet of Things (IoT) is quickly getting attention over the recent years. By 2020, it is expected that this technology will become even more mainstream. This, if anything, is to be expected. IoT will be making physical objects we are interacting with smarter than ever before.
Through an array of sensors and devices, daily objects we are interacting with can communicate with each other and respond to the surroundings as needed. For us, this means more convenient and productive lives.
5G is starting to roll out on devices. The infrastructure necessary for its wide-scale application is already in the works. Soon, 5G will let you connect to the internet at blazing speeds. 5G will also be the key feature that will empower much of the upcoming 2020 tech.
Blockchain is an extremely secure and fast way to conduct financial transactions. By 2020, the blockchain framework will be more than just for currency purposes. According to Forbes, it will also be used in food safety, real estate management, and even intellectual properties.
With the strong AI foundations and the emergence of 5G, Everything as a service (XaaS) is the inevitable end result. By 2020, customers and companies alike will be relying more on the cloud to access services such as software, infrastructure, storage, marketing, and healthcare — just to name a few.
5. Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is yet another technology that is already very much present in 2019. All of the other entries on this list have some sort of an AI or machine learning system in its DNA. The versatility and power of AI is undeniable. For 2020, it will continue to dominate and flourish in the tech world.
