In 2020, you can expect to see a great many changes and advancements in the world of technology. Some of which will surely start rocking the market if they take off. For that reason, you will find that there is a lot of talk of advancement as we move into a new decade. So, with that in mind, these are five of the biggest technology trends coming in 2020:

1 – AI

Artificial Intelligence is something which has grown over recent years. But, given the way sci fi properties tend to latch onto this is one reason it is less talked about than it should be. However, in 2020 that is definitely set to change.

2 – Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality is the successor of Virtual Reality, popular in gaming and increasingly so as brand experiences. This is because Augmented Reality is a way to add to the environment around you–Pokemon Go is a good example of this.

With implementation possibility in entertainment, education and even marketing there is a world of opportunity for AR. Some of which will definitely come into fruition in 2020.

3 – IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) is something people have been talking about for many years. But, they are now coming to fruition in big ways now.

Connected devices are now large parts of our homes. Including home assistants (which require an Alexa developer), fridges, washing machines, security cameras, cars, and much, much, more. They are all connected to the internet and share data across the network. By 2020, the world will be overrun by billions of IoT devices. So this will only develop further.

However, one problem which may arise is the fact that not enough training has been given. Nor are there enough jobs moving forward for IoT in the future. So, the development of IoT may slow as the industry needs to catch up with itself in this regard.

4 – Blockchain

More associated with things like Bitcoin, blockchain is the future of data; but it is only something you can add to, not take away from or change. It becomes a chain of data, thus the name. Transactions are not needed to be validated by third-party software, as the data cannot be controlled by one entity.

5 – 5G

Number five on our list is obviously home to 5G, one of the most anticipated technologies coming to the market in 2020.

Fifth-gen mobile internet has been on the horizon for some time now. Promising faster load speed, better connectivity and more reliability. It will mean a lot of new considerations, especially in app development. The new gen of internet will mean much better connections for people up and down the country. Leading some to consider that the new age of smart cities is only one step away from this.

Final Thoughts

All in all, it’s important to consider that change is inevitable. And some of these listed technologies will be the root of change moving into the future. So, understanding and being aware of what these changes are can be a great boon to your own knowledge of future advancement. Giving you the opportunity to understand and grow alongside this change.
