Discover the 10 best technological trends of 2022

New technological innovations will help transform business and society in 2022. Here are the main trends that will be observed in the coming months.

№1: Computing power

In 2022, computing power will continue to grow. We now have a significantly improved cloud infrastructure, and many companies are moving to cloud computing.

We are also seeing a push for better networks – 5G is unfolding and 6G is on the horizon. This means even more power in our phones, in our cars and in our portable devices.

№2: Smarter devices

Increasing computer performance allows us to create smarter devices. We now have smart TVs, self-driving cars and smarter robots that can work with people to do more tasks.

In 2022, the explosion of smart devices will continue, including the introduction of smart home robots.

No. 3: Quantum calculations

The trend towards quantum computing – the processing of information represented by special quantum states – allows machines to process information in a fundamentally different way than traditional computers. Quantum computing has the potential to give us a trillion times more computing power than today’s advanced supercomputers.

In 2022, quantum computers may well change our approach to issues such as logistics, portfolio management and drug innovation.

№ 4: Danification

Data is a key factor in all these trends. Digitizing the world today means we have vast amounts of data that have become the number one business asset for every organization. We can use data to better understand our customers, research key trends, and gain insight into what works in our organizations.

No. 5: Artificial intelligence and machine learning

Organizations and researchers are now using all their data and computing power to present to the world the advanced capabilities of artificial intelligence.

One of the main trends in the world of AI is computer vision. We now have computers that can see and recognize objects in video or photos. Language processing is also very successful, so machines can understand our voices and respond to us.

“Low code” or “no code” will also be a big trend this year. We will be able to create our AI using graphical drag-and-drop interfaces, which will allow us to develop extraordinary programs without limiting our coding skills.

No. 6: Augmented reality

Our devices (especially our phones and tablets) now have more augmented reality (AR) capabilities, and we are seeing an even bigger boost in virtual reality (VR). In 2022, we will see new, lighter and more mobile VR devices. Instead of having bulky headsets that require a Wi-Fi connection, we will have more glasses-like devices that connect to our phones and provide a great virtual reality experience in terms of mobility.

These advances in augmented reality pave the way for incredible experiences in the metaverse, a permanent shared virtual world that users can access on a variety of devices and platforms.

№ 7: Digital trust

Blockchain technology, distributed registries and fixed tokens (NFT) are transforming our world, and we will continue to see progress in this technology in 2022. These innovations go beyond bitcoin, such as smart contracts that allow us to prove ownership through NFT. . This year we will see more companies and individuals who improve physical objects with blockchain technology and fixed tokens.

No. 8: 3D printing

Now, with 3D printing, we can create things we didn’t even dream of decades ago. In 2022, we will see transformations in manufacturing and beyond, from technological innovations to 3D printing, including mass production of custom parts, concrete for the home, printed food, metal and composite materials. .

No. 9: Genomics

The 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to two scientists, Emmanuel Charpentier and Jennifer A. Dudna, for their work on developing a method of genome editing. Genomics, gene editing, and synthetic biology are major trends in 2022, as these advances can help us modify crops, treat and eradicate diseases, develop new vaccines, such as Covid-19 vaccines, and achieve other medical and biological breakthroughs.

Nanotechnology will also allow us to give materials new attributes by manipulating them at the subatomic level, so this year we will be able to create sophisticated displays, better batteries, water-repellent and self-cleaning fabrics and even self-healing paints.

No. 10: New energy solutions

The last extremely important trend is new energy solutions. As part of the fight against climate change, we will see constant progress in the batteries used in our cars, as well as innovations in nuclear energy and green hydrogen. These new trends will allow us to power our ships, our planes, our trains and produce energy for the general public.
