Technology trends to watch out for in 2023
Posted on 22nd November 2022 at 15:28
Technological advances never seem to stop. The whole tech industry is like a rolling machine, unable to sleep, constantly seeking progress. Every year we seem to be able to do just a little bit more than the last. It all happens so fast that we’re barely surprised by what’s new.
Perhaps that’s because we’re taking smaller steps. They are no less significant, and our working lives are made a lot easier by these small advancements, but we seem to be more focussed on improving what exists rather than defying physics and creating something new.
That said, there are some great things in the works at the moment, and if you rely on technology, you could be in for some nice surprises next year. Here are some of the technology trends to watch out for in 2023.
More focus on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
Alan Turing’s baby is no longer the dystopian nightmare that it became in Hollywood over the 80s and 90s. In fact, we seem to forget the lessons of The Terminator and Lawnmower Man. Over the last decade, what we understand to be artificial intelligence has been reconfigured and understood to be something entirely different. We’re not talking about the rise of machines, but ways in which technology can be made more intelligent and useful.
In 2023 we expect to see a heavy investment in the areas of artificial intelligence and machine learning. It has always been more effective on the back end of technology. Machine learning has improved significantly at analysing data and making connections that humans might miss.
AI will be widely used in many sectors to analyse interactions, connections, and provide better insights to help make better decisions about resource management. Moreover, for businesses, the near-real-time data that can be analysed will help drive revenues and create personalised customer experiences.
New energy saving solutions
For various reasons, saving energy has dominated the news over recent years. From climate change activism to the cost-of-living crisis and extortionate energy price rises, there is a lot more focus on greener technology.
Every industry is looking to cut back on their energy usage as well as lessen their carbon footprint. Outside any debate, most people are unified under the idea that energy saving is the way forward.
In 2023, we expect to see heavy investment in greener technologies for the office, for the road, and anywhere you can plug a USB.
The pandemic would have been much more difficult to manage without quantum computing. Written down it seems like another terrifying science fiction trend coming to life. It’s a rapidly emerging technology that harnesses the laws of quantum mechanics to solve problems too complex for normal technology and supercomputers.
It helped us prevent the spread of coronavirus and helped to develop potential vaccines. Quantum computing can easily query, analyse, monitor, and act upon data regardless of its source.
The applications of a computing technology that can read complex data and understand patterns faster is not only critical to the healthcare industry but has wider implications in various important industries. This technology could be used in the military, traffic, or maritime industries just as well as the hospitals.
Virtual reality and augmented reality
Virtual and augmented reality investment isn’t new. In fact, with the rise of the app, came the rise of extended realities. Pokemon Go, amongst other apps, have made great and fun use of augmented reality. But militaries have started putting it into use in training software.
The possibilities are endless. In 2023 you might see it more and more in marketing. You may also see the education sectors making good use of it as it can bring museums, other cultures, and countries, or even space to life. The market for AR and VR technology has grown significantly since 2019 and doesn’t seem to be slowing down either.
