4 Technology Trends to Watch Out For in 2020

Technology is evolving at a faster rate than ever before, so much so that it often feels impossible to keep up to date with what is hot and what is now, not. As these technical developments are churned out, they shape the way that we live our everyday lives.

Twenty years ago none of us had cell phones and now many of us would say we cannot live without them. Good thing or not, technology plays a massive role in our lives. Technology has been evolving every year. For instance, email is being used by people for various purposes. And, to handle the incoming email, Gmail automation is a great feature introduced to organize email inbox.

So what are the big trends that we should look forward to in 2021?

Edge Computing to Take Big Steps Forward

There is a common consensus that Cloud computing has been taken as far as it can. OAnything that can benefit from using the cloud is already using the cloud. However, a new technology is making waves in the tech industry is Edge computing. This technology is making our devices a lot smarter so that they do not have to rely on the cloud as much. THis ensures less latency, better security, and smarter applications.

The Year for Artificial Intelligence?

We have been told about the increased development of AI for many years but many are predicting 2021 to be the year when it really strikes out and makes a difference to our lives. Some have even said that they expect artificial intelligence applications to make their way to every industry in the world.

2021 Set to be a Big Year for Augmented Reality

While many of us are still trying to get our heads around virtual reality, it is little wonder that we get confused when we are now hearing about augmented reality. This technology gives us the ability to see the real world but with the addition of virtual objects. Think finding a Pokemon on Pokemon Go or adding some silly glasses when taking a selfie on Snapchat and you have augmented reality.

This technology is set to develop a lot further in 2021. Many big companies are looking to explore the benefits it can bring.

Cybersecurity Market to Enjoy Huge Growth Next Year

This might not seem like an obvious trend but the cybersecurity industry is rapidly growing. Partly due to more people working at home because of COVID but also because hackers are constantly finding new and improved ways to get access to our devices, this industry is predicted to double in size throughout the next decade. Did you know that jobs in this sector are increasing three times faster than any other in the tech industry?

Final Thoughts

So there you have it, our predictions on the technologies that will trend throughout 2021. Each will have an impact on how we run our daily lives and will have all of the biggest tech companies competing to see who can get the biggest shares of the market. The question is, are we moving too fast? Edge computing will give companies more control over our information and what we do while there are more obvious concerns about artificial intelligence.
