SUMMARY

This report highlights key technological trends that will impact and transform industries through 2023; the technological trends range from blockchain and smart spaces, to edge computing and augmented reality (AR).

Artificial intelligence (AI) helps machines perform tasks that were traditionally performed by humans. AI can be applied in different scenarios, such as operating a farming robot in a field or controlling the spacing between cars while humans are in the driver’s seat. Although there are many possibilities of AI-managed objects, AI does not have the same human decision-making skills. AI is best used for specific objectives.

As the digital ecosystem expands to include machines and objects, spaces are continuously becoming more connected. Smart spaces are physical or digital environments where human and technology-assisted systems communicate. Smart spaces emerge as individual technologies collaborate and interact. To securely store and access data shared in digital/physical systems, edge computing will maintain local traffic in endpoint devices, including phones, car sensors, and industrial machines.

Technologies such as blockchain help improve consistent and secure data transactions. However, data security and privacy are major concerns as Internet-connected things and people fluidly connect. A digital twin is a tool that digitally represents real-life objects, systems, and processes. While the idea of digital twins is old, today’s digital doppelgangers are far more robust due to AI development. Digital twins of systems can control and monitor in real-time, and evaluate hypothetical situations with the aid of augmented analytics.

This report demonstrates the potential of emerging technological trends. These trends improve data collection, information processing, and systems collaboration.
