As 2022 starts, it’s time to ponder how our lives will change in the years ahead, thanks to the multitude of technologies available to us. Here’s a look at how the world of technology might change the way we live in the year 2022.
Every year, technology advances at a breakneck pace, bringing new ideas and ground-breaking projects to the front line. Scientists, engineers, and some highly bright brains are working on the next piece of future technology that will revolutionize our life at any given time. Although scientific progress may be stable, we have had a time of tremendous technological advancement in the last half-century.
There are innovations taking place right now that look like they sprang straight out of a science-fiction novel. There are thousands of ideas for fintech startups in science and technology. Technology has advanced further with improved inventions to assist humans in daily tasks, and emerging technologies allow us to progress and better our currently constrained human situation.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) models and techniques have improved to the point where we see glimpses of new application cases that we previously only envisioned in movies and comic books. We’re entering a period in which data is abundant, access to it is nearly instantaneous, and our capacity to make sense of it in new and nuanced ways is almost automatic.
However, modern technology does not replace humans; rather, it enhances how we interact with the world. Technology will move us all and our planet in 2022, making it an exciting year. Let’s discuss some of the compelling future predictions of technology in 2022.
Tech That Will Change the Way We Live
Here I have discussed some of the ongoing and future predicted technologies that can change how we live.
1. Augmented Reality (AR) will become more common.
Augmented reality (AR) is projected to impact 2022 substantially. “Augmented reality will continue to find new applications.” In 2022, when the reality of hybrid work as the new normal has changed how we interact and learn, expect to see it integrated even more into sales and training areas. As prospects for the expansion of AR come themselves, decision-makers must know what problem they want to tackle rather than merely hoping that trendy technology will work for them. The difference between AR success and failure will be thoughtful implementation (including sufficient education and training).”
5G networks will make it easier to pull programs and interactions from anywhere in the world in a fraction of a second. The AR meeting will showcase holographic projection videos in a room without attending, and AR will be a more common part of daily life.
2. A new wave of connectivity will lead to a new class of applications.
A new wave of connectivity will bring balance opportunities for everyone worldwide from the same platform. It is for the equal development of the world. Blockchain, Edge computing, Quantum computing, IoT, Augmented reality will change the whole world to the next level. 5G technology will bound the world in a single thread providing the same access for users.
More than 20,000 satellites will be launched into low-Earth orbit (LEO) above our globe in some years to come. The low-earth-orbit satellite (LEO) will soon provide affordable broadband to every corner of the world. As teachers, students, small businesses, and nearly anybody gain access to the internet, their lives will be transformed.
With ubiquitous connection, we can begin to unleash previously unthinkable use cases. Large organizations with remote assets will optimize their use and maintenance. Data streams sent to the cloud will be available to transportation corporations with trucks, planes, and vessels on the move. The ubiquitous connection will lead us from intelligent spaces to intelligent cities, intelligent countries, and, ultimately, an intelligent world.
Also, Data Science becomes more crucial in practically every firm, so does the potential to improve and enhance various applications. AI/ML influences almost every element of modern business, from boosting customer interactions to making better data decisions to modeling driverless vehicles. Kubernetes provides the ideal platform features for AI/ML, including scalability, GPU access, workload mobility, and much more. Hence, we can anticipate that the next generation of apps will transform industries.
3. Demand for AI-enabled software development
Software development is transforming thanks to artificial intelligence. AI is gently but surely upping its game and supporting us in creating a brand new paradigm for developing technology, from the code to the deployment. According to Roy Morejon, President and Co-Founder at Enventys Partners, “accurate software development, testing, and deployment make AI-enabled software development more demanding and will grow in the future”.
Software engineers must use AI to streamline processes, decrease waste, and delegate repetitive manual tasks to computers. Several methods, most notably software testing, can be shortened by machine learning or deep learning. Developers can focus their expertise on specific jobs and learn to work together with AI. Data can assist in making wise and informed judgments based on historical behavior and analytics.
The use of AI technology will eradicate the challenges of software engineers and increase the speed and scale of development. It will be easier to debug codes and automatically test codes for the effectiveness of code, reducing time, money, and precision.
4. Hybridization For Open-Standards-Based Storage
Cloud standards will enable IT to achieve a completely new degree of portability and interoperability. The promise is that you would deploy complex applications within minutes.
Applications in this new hybrid IT environment must be portable, independent of the underlying operating system and storage architecture, and interoperable with almost anything else. To create an “open” IT ecosystem, vendors must commit to open standards, and Software-defined services can integrate with other services using open industry standards seamlessly. Customers don’t want vendor lock-in; they want adaptive solutions from various vendors.
The year 2022 could mark a tipping point for open-standards-based storage, resulting in a more open ecosystem. Containerization, which entails packaging more lightweight and portable applications, is a trend that aligns with this streamlining. Apps and workflows could be running alongside or even on top of the storage solution.
Some of the key predictions for Open-Standard-Based storage areas:
- Growth of Hyperconverged Storage
- Running Container Environments
- High flexibility Through Digital Change
- Advanced Artificial Intelligence for Storage Security
- Shift to Managed Services
5. The Ecosystem Of Software-Defined Storage
SDS (software-defined storage) is a storage architecture in which storage software and hardware are separated. Unlike traditional NAS or SAN systems, SDS is generally designed to run on any industry-standard system, removing the software’s reliance on proprietary hardware. This enables the management of multiple pools of physical storage resources as a single logical device.
SDS is a component of a larger ecosystem known as hyper-converged infrastructure, in which all software and hardware are separated. This division allows you to pick and choose which hardware to buy and how much storage you require.
As storage goes up the chain, expect it to evolve faster and replace other aspects of the IT ecosystem. The distinction between storage and software will become increasingly blurred, resulting in next-generation data management software. Interoperability between storage solutions and other parts of the ecosystem is required; open standards are needed.
We can anticipate that software-defined ideas will drive the design of next-generation storage systems.
Users will increasingly look to software-defined platforms as a cost-effective way to store data, significantly as data volumes grow larger. As a result of the expansion of SDS platforms, datacenters of the future will continue to evolve:
- Persistent data storage will become commoditized:
Data storage options will range from computation layers to disk storage mechanisms to local open object interfaces to cloud-based services. Users will initially migrate non-mission-critical and non-business-critical workloads to such platforms, and they will progressively migrate more workloads to such platforms.
- Infrastructure as a service:
Businesses will be able to provide resources from several locations, both locally and remotely, while maintaining a consistent presentation layer regardless of the device or place they access those resources.
6. Work-from-home becomes work-from-anywhere
Working from home has made headlines since Covid-19, with promises of a “revolution” in working patterns. This coverage may give the idea that working in an office is a thing of the past. Thousands of companies will build permanent work-from-home scenarios and will be upgraded to work from anywhere in 2022.
The trends of hiring employees from the global platforms will increase, and innovations will be based on upgrading the efficiency of remote working. There will be thousands of freelancing sites and job portals (think web creators and content writers). You can already think about developing a website to provide HR services. If you doubt your own abilities, there is an opportunity to hire a dedicated remote development team that will do it qualitatively, inexpensively and quickly. Hence, tech professionals can work from anywhere in the world using a common platform.
Here are some of the technology we wait for in 2022:
- More products, solutions, and services will be developed to improve the experience of remote workers.
- Artificial intelligence will be used to reduce background disturbances from video calls, such as barking dogs.
- Augmented reality will aid in the creation of more immersive work environments.
- Virtual reality, NLP, spatial audio, sensors, and world-facing cameras will change employees’ interactions with technology.
- Companies will increase their investments in IT infrastructure, such as managed services and device-as-a-service providers.
7. Transparency, governance, and accountability
Civil society has worked on participation, transparency, accountability, and governance issues for years. For technology to function, we humans must be able to trust it. We are already seeing strong resistance to many current uses of technology that are regarded as intrusive, hazardous, or irresponsible. AI, in an instance, is commonly depicted as a “black box,” which means humans can’t peek inside to understand how it works. In 2022, society will begin to look at AI for decision-making.
The growing use of technology for decision-making and the accuracy of decisions makes it more trustworthy. 2022 will be the year that brings more transparency, accountability, and accuracy in strategic decision-making. Hence, it gets more transparency and accountability to digital data.
We can expect that in 2022, IT leaders will be requested to explore sensitive topics such as secret computing. The demand for AI trained to describe itself in a language that the typical human can understand will grow. Companies will need to assure trustworthy AI as AI becomes more important in understanding and capitalizing on data.
Even if the COVID-19 epidemic ultimately recedes to become endemic in 2022, the changes sweeping the globe will not slow down. Aside from the seven major themes indicated above, the year ahead will cover a wide range of innovations.
We will see lots of new technology and findings in a distributed database, 5G service, datacentric AI, remote medicine, biomedical technologies, cybersecurity, Metaverse, and many more. Let’s trust technology and use it to make our life easier and more intelligent.
