Upcoming technologies are nothing but the technologies of the future. These technologies are going to shape our lives for the better! As a result, it is important for us to focus on them!
Think about what technologies came in the past. And how it impacted. The email was one such invention, for instance.
If we take the last one hundred years, the last ten-twenty years was when we made huge technological advances. But what the next ten years hold for us is something unimaginable.
It’s empowering when we tell ourselves: “Innovate & Grow”.
Tech has invaded our lives and careers so much that we sometimes wonder how on earth did we manage so far without these technologies.
The future of work is shaped by a few technologies.
It is essential for anyone working in IT [Information Technology] to get into one of these technologies that match their passion & skills to further grow in their careers.
Now, let us take a look at these upcoming technologies. I know that you have heard about them all. I am just collating ideas and presenting them in a fashion that is easily consumable.
- Artificial Intelligence
- Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality
- Cyber Security
- Retail technology
Generally, technology is used to reduce costs, improve efficiencies, remove redundancies, make lives simpler, easier, better & worth living.
Technology helps us lead a better life.
At the beginning of my sales career, I sold Desktop Publishing Solutions, mostly software, high-res printers & high-res scanners.
Occasionally, when customers preferred buying a complete DTP solution, I had sold computers too. Those days, I sold AT386 machines with 4 MB RAM and 40 MB HDD, 3.5″ & 5.25″ Floppy Drives [what’s that?].
Today, we have 8 GB RAM & 1 TB HDD. We have come a long way. Yes or No? It’s just an example of technological advances.
Talking about technological advances, Steve Jobs imagined more than any human being did. He did more than anyone else as well. We have supercomputers in our pockets because of his work.
Today, people are uploading 500 hrs of video to YouTube every minute and 1.2 billion photos to Google Photos every day. [Source: Wikipedia].
What do we do with such huge data and technology?
If we can use tech for the following, the world will be a much better place:
- Predict & cure diseases.
- Address climate change.
- Solve air pollution problem.
- Make food available to everyone everywhere.
- Provide employment to everyone in the world.
- Make education accessible to everyone.
- Democratize almost everything.
- Preserve our natural resources.
Enough of dreaming, now let’s get back to work and make these dreams come true. 🙂
At least a few of them, to start with!
