1. Neuronal Synaptic Connection
Neuralink, a company linked to Elon Musk, is already testing the neural synaptic connection and this means that we can eat a hamburger in the metaverse or feel anything: the wind; pleasure, smells The technology is already in the experimental phase and the applications it may have will be a matter of thinking about it.
2. The Metaverse is not a bluff, it is a reality
The metaverse, which Mark Zuckemberg is promoting so much, will continue to be a technological trend in 2024. We strongly affirm this because we have had the opportunity to experience it, both with our own educational metaverse, for the benefit of our students, creating incredible spaces for interaction and because we have experimented with Oculus, creating virtual classrooms in the metaverse as well.
3. Clones or Digital Twins
Having a replica in the metaverse or digital to carry out all the tests you want without any risk already exists, but 2024 will be the year in which we will see the development of this technology that has already been used intensively in Formula 1.
4. Artificial Intelligence invades our lives
Artificial intelligence has already invaded our lives and we haven’t noticed it. The other day someone in a forum told me that it will be necessary to see if these technologies are good or bad and the truth is that I laughed. There is already artificial intelligence in Google, Waze, in Smart Grids or the last big bombshell of the year for OpenAI with ChatGPT, which is nothing shocking or new, but it will be a before and after because it clearly shows where we are. The new electricity of our lives is AI and it will help improve our lives as much as it did with the advent of electricity.
Can you imagine that you take a pill and millions of nano cameras make a preventive diagnosis of the state of your body perfectly and in a non-intrusive way. If what we have seen in some movies is about to be real. Nanotechnology enables great innovations in health, engineering and many other functions at the level of tissues and new components that will surprise us.
6. Smart robotics
Robotics meets AI and machine learning. Its capacity to destroy employment is massive and it is possible that in this decade we will experience the first anti-robot strikes and demonstrations. But they have come to do physical or risky work that we do not want or can do and can be, if properly applied, the tool towards a world of abundance and contemplation for human beings.
7. 5G settles and 6G arrives
We had already talked about it and the importance of combining 5G with IoT in Industry 4.0. But once the 5G network is deployed, the operators have no choice but to offer more and more to their customers, so the deployment of the 6G commercial network will be one of the technology trends of this 2024.
8. Mixed Realities
If you thought the metaverse and virtual reality were going to be everything, mixing reality with the digital world creates real but enhanced worlds. At the moment, we have seen the most amazing applications in decoration with mobile phones, but with special glasses our world will become something much more wonderful.
Automating repetitive tasks or processes using software is nothing new, what will be new is that AI is integrated into this software to do things faster and better than people, learning from the environment and the wide variety of applications that will appear.
10. No Code and Low Code
You may not see this technological trend in many places and although some may overlook it, it seems to me essential for the future of organizations. And it means that developing is no longer a matter of programmers, but is open to everyone, because anyone can program. And if you doubt it, let’s talk about Bubble or Chatfuel.
11. Smart is all
AI appears again in Smart Grids, Smart Cities, Smart Companies, Smart Factories, Smart Universities. The combination of data with AI, with remote management, driving and logistics and autonomous operations and data control centers will facilitate management.
12. Technology for sustainability and energy efficiency
The world urgently needs to find an abundant and cheap source of energy and we ended the year with the great news that nuclear fusion had been achieved, and that we are 10 years away from having energy from the sun on earth. But it will be necessary to see if they are 10 years or 25 because in the meantime variants are being developed, improving renewable energies or the hydrogen cell.
On the other hand, as we mentioned before, AI once again helps to improve electrical networks, which means that we need to produce the same energy as 20 years ago, but for a consumption that almost doubles it. Any technological advance in this area has an incredible impact.
We don’t know if it will be a fad or if it will catch on in the western market because this trend coming from and consolidated in Asia consists of mobile applications that practically do everything. An example of a super app would be We Chat, which offers services such as messaging, mobile payments, online shopping, hotel reservations, financial services, and other features that are being added.
14. Biotechnology and HealthTech
Mathematics and artificial intelligence offer us a great gift in terms of health. We will see amazing things in terms of preventive medicine, improvement of the quality of life in old age, mental health, “antiaging”, cell or organ regeneration and synthetic skins with superhuman properties.
Metaverse, biotechnology or artificial intelligence – which technologies will have a significant impact on business and society in the coming years? To answer this question, analytics firms, and now tech giants from the US and China, regularly venture into the crystal ball at the start of the year.
Each year, Gartner, IDC and co publish their forecasts for the most important technology trends for the coming years. These prophecies are typically based on ongoing surveys of CEOs and CIOs, combined with their own experiences. Meanwhile, the expert analyzed millions of public documents and patent applications over the past three years and interviewed nearly a hundred scientists.
The result is ten technology trends that could have a measurable impact on both business and everyday life in the next five years.
In detail, the expert has identified the following ten technology trends 2024:
- Cloud, network and device convergence
The rapid development of new network technologies is accelerating the evolution of cloud computing towards a new computing system – the convergence of cloud, network and devices with a clear division of work. This serves as a catalyst for more demanding applications such as high-fidelity industrial simulation, as well as real-time quality assurance and mixed reality. Many use cases are expected to run on this new computer system over the next two years.
- Artificial intelligence for science
Machine learning can process huge amounts of multi-dimensional and multi-modal data as well as solve complex scientific problems. This not only accelerates scientific research, but even contributes to the discovery of new scientific laws. In the next three years, artificial intelligence will be widely used in research and some fundamental sciences.
- Photonic silicon chips
Electronic chips are reaching their physical limits in high performance computing (HPC). Silicon photonics technology, which is rapidly advancing thanks to cloud computing and artificial intelligence, offers a way out. Thus, high-speed data transmission in large data processing centers in the next three years may be partially based on photonic silicon chips.
- Artificial intelligence for renewable energy
The biggest challenges in renewable energy development continue to be grid integration, energy consumption and storage performance. In addition to improving energy efficiency at many levels, artificial intelligence supports the automation of energy systems and improves resource utilization and stability. Thus, in the next three years, this will make a significant contribution to the integration of renewable energy sources into the energy system.
- High precision medicine
With the help of artificial intelligence, doctors can more accurately and quickly diagnose, treat and predict diseases, and perhaps even prevent them.
- Secure data processing
Specialized chips, crypto algorithms and whitebox implementations provide data protection even for large amounts of data and data integration from different sources. In the next three years, we can expect dramatic improvements in productivity and the interpretability of results in relation to the private sphere.
- Augmented Reality (XR)
Mixed reality lays the foundation for a new industrial ecosystem with electronic components, operating systems and applications. It will revolutionize the way people interact with technology in private and professional environments. In the next three years, the new generation of XR glasses, which look and feel indistinguishable from traditional glasses, will enable the next generation of Internet access.
- Soft robotics
More malleable materials and advances in environmental perception and self-awareness distinguish soft robots from their “hard” cousins.
- Satellite and terrestrial computing
The integrated system combines HEO (High Elliptical Orbit) and LEO (Low Earth Orbit) satellites with terrestrial mobile networks to achieve seamless, multi-dimensional coverage. This means that sparsely populated areas such as deserts, oceans and even outer space can benefit from digital services. In the next five years, satellites and terrestrial systems will form an integrated network system to provide comprehensive communications.
- Co-evolution of artificial intelligence models on a large and small scale
Models for large-scale pre-training are central to the transition from weak to general AI. But with higher performance comes higher power consumption. This is why the future of artificial intelligence lies in the coexistence of large and small models in clouds, edges and devices.
