9 HIGHLIGHT TECHNOLOGY TRENDS IN 2022
Thursday March 10th, 2022
Technology is becoming to play a vital role in modern life, especially in the complicated global epidemics. Let’s see the 9 highlight technology trends with MOR Software in 2022.
1. Artificial Intelligence (AI)
AI has become so familiar and gradually becomes an indispensable part of human life. There are countless examples around our lives such as virtual assistants on devices, self-driving cars/planes. According to MarketsandMarkets forecast, global spending on AI systems reached more than $57 billion by 2021. Experts forecast that the AI market will grow into a $190 billion industry by 2025. The application of AI is widespread across lots of fields. As a result, it will create a large number of jobs for the IT industry such as software development, programming, testing, support, and maintenance…
2. Internet connection
The Internet is an indispensable part of people’s lives. It leads to the rapid development of the digital economy. Statistics from IoT Analytics show that in 2020, there will be about 11.7 billion IoT device connections. This number is much higher than 9.5 billion in 2019. Experts say that we are at the early stage of this trend. By 2025, there are an estimated 30 billion IoT connections, which is an average of nearly 4 IoT devices per person globally.
To meet the connection needs, 5G and 6G super technologies are being researched and developed by many countries and large technology corporations. According to estimates by Ericsson, by 2024 there will be 1.5 billion users who will have access to 5G networks. By that time, next-generation mobile networks will also reach more than 40% of the world’s population.
The Metaverse is a digitized universe that links aspects of social networking, online gaming, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and cryptocurrency. This ecosystem allows users to interactivity through virtual reality. The future growth of Metaverse will directly impact many technology businesses in various fields. For example, games, jewelry accessories, VR and AR, teamwork platforms (Canva, Slack), technology products (augmented reality glasses or smart speakers), social networks, educational technology, health technology, communication technology (Zoom), cryptocurrency, and many other fields.
4. Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT)
Blockchain is a shared, immutable ledger that facilitates the process of recording transactions and tracking assets in a business network. An asset can be tangible (a house, car, cash, land) or intangible (intellectual property, patents, copyrights, branding).
All network participants have access to the distributed ledger and its immutable record of transactions. With this shared ledger, transactions are recorded only once. Since members share a single view of the truth, you can see all details of a transaction end to end with no doubt. You won’t need a third party to ensure the accuracy of information.
Virtually anything of value can be tracked and traded on a blockchain network, reducing risk and cutting costs for all involved. Therefore, experts forecast that blockchain will be applied by more and more enterprises in 2022.
NFT, short for Non-Fungible Token (or non-fungible asset) is a digital asset built on the blockchain system. The NFT itself is not a physical asset. It is a kind of cryptographic representing in code and data to verify its owner. Each “code” represents an asset, each asset will own a separate digital signature. Therefore, it is unique.
These assets can be represented online as digital real estate in a virtual world or products in video games. Or these assets can be really like a piece of land, a picture, or a ticket to a certain football… Asset verification and identity information are stored on the blockchain.
In 2021, the NFT sector grew explosively with transactions worth tens of millions of dollars. NFT has been applied most widely in digital fields such as photos, music, games, or other artistic content. Besides, the potential of NFT is limitless because of the flexibility in how it can be used. The trend of using NFT is not expected to cool down in 2022.
6. Robotics technology
The trend of automation is increasingly being promoted. Therefore, robotics technology is also focused more on improving work efficiency and cutting labor costs. The application of robotic technology in human life and manufacturing sectors will grow strongly in 2022. For example, healthcare, agriculture, automotive industry, logistics, and supply chain management.
7. Cybersecurity and security
As digital transformation is joined by both governments and businesses, cyber-attacks are happening more and more globally. In 2022, cyber security breaches are likely to occur on a larger scale across all different industries.
Cybersecurity is not an emerging technology, but it never goes out of fashion. While the technology develops, hackers also create many new tricks and threats. The proof is that the number of jobs in cybersecurity is growing three times faster than other technology jobs. Experts predict that by 2025, around 60% of organizations will use cybersecurity risk as a key determinant in making third-party business transactions and engagements (according to Gartner).
8. Cloud computing
In the last two years, cloud computing has exploded as organizations shift to online management and focus on delivering digital services. Cloud solutions specific to different industries can allow companies to automate manual tasks that set them apart from their competitors.
In 2022, more and more businesses will consider using cloud computing services. Experts predict about 70% of companies will use hybrid-cloud or multi-cloud platforms as part of their distributed IT infrastructure. At the same time, IoT will certainly be the driving force behind the stronger development of cloud computing. According to Gartner, global cloud computing service fees will increase from $314 billion (2020) to $482 billion by 2022.
9. Application of technology in Science and Life
The field of Life and Science has many different sub-branches including Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology, Environmental Sciences, Biomedical, Functional Foods, Neuroscience, Cell Biology, and Biophysics learn. The year 2021 has spurred major innovation in life science technology, in part due to increased investment in high-performance Covid-19 test and mRNA vaccine technology.
Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna are two typical examples of the application of mRNA technology in making vaccines. Or Merck’s Covid cure is also proof that the Science and Life field is thriving.
In 2022, lots of life science fields are predicted to have a strong “transformation” and be applied more and more widely in life. It includes cutting-edge research, robotics, artificial intelligence tools, and cloud technology, along with improved drug testing speed, genetic information integration, and technology use. genetic technology. This will be an opportunity for businesses, startups, and investors to make the most of technology trends in business to develop.
