The 3 technology trends that will transform the world

What distinguishes the fourth industrial revolution from previous ones is the convergence and interaction of several technological trends at the same time. Here are some of the main technological trends that that will permanently change our businesses and our lives.

Trend 1: Everything connected and smart

You’re no doubt familiar with the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT refers to the growing number of smart, connected devices and objects capable of collecting and transmitting data.

In the future, everything that can be connected will be connected. Not just devices and products – although this is certainly a key factor for businesses – but also the spaces in which we live and work. From smart, connected factories and offices to entire smart cities, the spaces around us will be increasingly equipped to track what is happening and act accordingly.

Trend 2: The datification of the world

Ubiquitous computing and IoT are bringing huge amounts of data being generated every day. But along with this machine-generated data, we humans also generate an enormous amount of data during our daily activities, a process that shows no signs of slowing down.

The good news is that companies can use this data to develop better products and services, improve business processes, make decisions and even create new revenue streams. However, companies also need to be aware of the risks associated with data, particularly data privacy and security.

Trend 3: Artificial Intelligence (AI)

All the data generated is an important tool for artificial intelligence, which has taken an incredible leap forward in recent years.

The result for businesses is that, as our interactions with machines become increasingly intelligent, customers will expect all types of products and services to have some form of AI capability.

Now, following all of these trends, we understand that we are entering an era of rapid and continuous evolution, where multiple technology trends combine and feed into each other to produce major changes. For businesses, this means that the days of incremental technology upgrades are gone forever. Continuous change is the way of the future.
