Technology has been constantly evolving for decades now. Over the past two decades in particular, we have seen major changes to our way of life come seemingly rapid fire. The growth of these advancements isn’t slowing down anytime soon.

But what does the next decade look like? What are the biggest trends on the horizon? Here is what to expect.

Developments in AI

Artificial Intelligence is one of the hot button topics within the tech world. Just what are the capabilities? Where can we expect it to develop over the next year, five years, or 10 years? Creating AI enabled tools seems to be the next step in the development.

Some advanced AI models can create specific tools targeted to solve very specific issues. More and more businesses are looking to explore the boundaries of AI-assisted design, graphs and ontology, small data, generative AI, and more. Automation is a big part of what is to come and AI will lead the charge.

Trust in Algorithms

There is a greater importance on the protection and security of data and privacy than ever before. With big companies such as Facebook and Google constantly coming under scrutiny for violating those terms, the ball is there to be picked up by others.

Technologies that are tied to algorithmic trust include differential privacy, secure access service edge (SASE), responsible AI, explainable AI, and authenticated provenance. Each with the goal of reducing risk and loss of trust with partners, employees, and customers.

New Materials

Traditionally, silicon has been the go-to material for the tech industry. That said, we are approaching the physical limits of silicon, leading to a breakthrough in advanced materials that will make technologies both smaller and faster.

Biodegradable sensors, DNA computing, and carbon-based transistors are just a few of the materials gaining traction. After all, we are living in a world of Moore’s Law, which dictates that the number of transistors within a dense integrated circuit will double every couple of years. That means the need for better, more readily available materials.
