Below mentioned are the top 5 trending technologies of 2020 which will blow your mind. Keep on reading the article for all the details –
The top 5 technology trends of 2020 has been presented at the Gartner/IT Symposium Expo. They predicted that the technologies of 2020 consists of two things – Human Centric and Smart Spaces.
Hyper Automation is the application of advanced technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to automate the process in such a way that are more powerful than traditional automation capabilities. It requires a combination of process to help , support and replicate pieces of where the human body is involved in the task. This already kicked off as Robotic process Automation but will eventually see growth as Artificial Intelligence, OCR, Content Intelligent and other wonderful technologies.
Human Augmentation involves how technology can be used to deliver cognitive and physical improvements as an integral part of the human experience. Companies like Boston Dynamics have already developed a wide variety of human augmenting devices that can be used in factories or on the battlefield. New applications include the use of these wearables to improve worker safety in the mining industry. In other industries, such as retail and travel, wearables could be used to increase worker productivity and increase human ability.
The Empowered Edge
Edge computing is a computing topology in which information processing and content collection and delivery are placed closer to the sources, repositories and consumers of this information. This allows for the reduction in latency, and it allows for some level of autonomy on these edge devices. Complex edge devices, including robots, drones, autonomous vehicles, and operational systems will accelerate this shift”. This will extend the role of devices as the basis for smart spaces and will move key applications and services closer to the people and devices that use them.
Cryptocurrency And Practical Blockchain
While Blockchain has been around for a few years, it’s been slow to be commercially deployed because of some of the technical and management issues in the technology. Blockchain has the potential to reshape industries by enabling trust, providing transparency and enabling value exchange across business. The report notes that another area in which blockchain has potential is identity management. Smart contracts can be programmed into the blockchain where events can trigger actions; for example, payment is released when goods are received.
As complementary technologies such as AI and the IoT begin to integrate, blockchain will see tremendous growth in the enterprise.
The Distributed Cloud
Distributed cloud is how the cloud is shifting. Most have thought of the cloud as being location independent, it’s just out there; it’s up there somewhere. The cloud now expands its territory and becomes a distributed cloud, which is the distribution of public cloud services to different locations while the originating public cloud provider assumes responsibility for the operation, governance, updates to and evolution of the services.
