2022 is the year where you will see an endless emergence of disruptive technologies.
Despite the past two years that put an abrupt halt to almost everything, we’re pleased to see that the world did not stop charging into the future. Technology has been upgrading our lives with disruptive introductions time and again and it is continuing to do so even today- for our betterment of course.
In case you didn’t know, disruptive innovation is what we refer to as the progress of digital transformation. The latter phrase is a reference for all the companies who have been striving to mold, upgrade and transform their business operations and model to stay relevant. We all know the present age is a completely digitized one and if you wish to be successful in times like these, you have to be as digitally innovative as possible.
We can define exponentially growing disruptive technologies as those that are bringing accelerated changes. Perhaps the facility of cost reductions and phenomenal progress in data storage, bandwidth, and computing power areas has made the rapid transformation of a digital world possible.
Like we said, to stay relevant in this age, you need to evolve digitally as fast as possible. Keeping up with this, it is important to stay ahead of the disruptive technologies that are growing exponentially today. Are you ready to take notes of what they are? Let’s begin!
1. Machine Learning and AI
Artificial Intelligence has been governing major parts of our lives for a while now but it has grown even more in its potential recently. Although it still has a great road to cover, which it is already doing, it has, however, made significant inroads in the customer services business today.
Businesses are currently relying heavily on AI for predicting the future changes in human nature, their behaviors, and the next hot item they’ll demand. This is why AI developers are rapidly creating stellar algorithms to equip marketers even better and stay ahead of the trend.
Machine learning is right now exploding into a multi-trillion dollar business and will take over the world soon.
This disruptive technology has also been around a while now and currently, it is making minimal human assistance even more and more common. Don’t get it? It’s simple: automation is any and every process where human beings will have the least to zero part to play.
Automation is well on the path leading to a time where a significant number of jobs will disappear while many new ones will take over, which will feature activities that are still in the invention phase.
3. 3D Printing
The world does not have the matter replicators we watch on Star Trek yet but it won’t be long before that too becomes available. If you don’t believe it, take a look at the start 3D printing has taken and see the raw materials, software, and equipment we now have to print various objects.
How is 3D technology disruptive? Well, if we keep printing what we need in-house, it won’t be long before technology could completely eliminate the need for mass-production and manufacturing and resultantly transportation of goods too.
4. Virtual Assistants
These software agents have been providing information, assistance, and automating tasks for users. Soon we’ll be using them as the primary sources for services, products, and information.
5. Improved Connectivity with 5G
5G has been here for a long, perhaps the reason you’re able to stream videos so quickly and qualitatively. With increased connectivity, remote working will become the norm because more video capacity, bandwidth, higher compatibility with older protocols, stricter security checks, and more will make it possible.
We cannot say what that will do for physical companies but we can foresee countless opportunities developing in this field itself.
We know of cyborgs in the medical world but this technology has expanded to the extent where bionic implants will soon replicate and even increase the original functions of our body organs and parts. While they’re only a supplement for lost body parts right now, they’re quickly progressing to more.
“Oh, they’re nothing new and we’ve seen all that bots can do.” You may have seen robots in the manufacturing sector, with self-driving trucks and drones, etc. but this has only just started.
Robotics is a sheer disruptive technology for they’re going to have a major impact on the workforce. It won’t be long before they’ll be replacing humans at cheaper prices. It doesn’t take much to foresee the massive unemployment that machines will create, isn’t it?
8. Big Data
These are overly complex and large-scale data sets that process only through non-traditional PC applications. We can no longer distinguish between AI projects and big data, thanks to the increasingly popular technologies for large data handling.
9. Cyber Security Progress
Cybercriminals are at their most active selves, what with the ever-expanding online congregation these days. But cyber security has thankfully improvised advances to strengthen security against those. We now have better tools for intrusion detection and firewalls.
The combination of engineering and science applications will create products that slow down aging processes, eliminate diseases from genomes, replace our defected tissues and organs and build new human parts too.
11. Edge Computing
We have moved from model to model of computers. From giants to clouds, the evolution has been incredible. A new one is currently in the pipeline, a disruptive technology that will automatically provide you cloud-like power and improved latency.
What’s more, it will boost security while increasing bandwidth.
This disruptive technology will feature an expanded record list encrypted and linked to your privacy and security. Accelerated machine learning and big data are constantly threatening our privacy and security but here is a technology that will disrupt those.
13. Headless Technology
With this technology, businesses can decouple front-end user interfaces from the back-end solutions of e-commerce data. For instance, ask Alexa to ship you the latest Batman movie; this is headless tech use simple.
14. Smart City
The primary feature here is the electronic IoT (Internet of Things). These are sensors that will basically collect your data and then use the same for smartly handling your assets and resources.
This is an exponentially growing computing model. They are the on-demand, cloud-based platforms that will revolutionize the IT world. Cloud solutions have become attractive and accessible because of these platforms, such as Zoom and Cloud subscriptions, etc.
This technology is another computing model that employs mechanical quantum phenomena. It does so to manipulate the information using qubits or quantum bits. With this tech, you will find effective solutions to problems while ruling out the ineffective ones.
17. Voice Search
The age where searchers have to type away on Google is soon coming to an end. Activated voice searches are becoming more common and soon users will be asking laptops and phones for the nearest dentists, mechanics, etc.
This technology will manipulate matter on supramolecular, molecular, and atomic scales. Hence, it will create smarter, cheaper, better, and cleaner products. Almost like a goodbye to high-end brands!
Digital camera advancements have made it possible to see three-dimensional figures with naked eyes. Accelerated convergence, high-speed internet, display technologies, advanced camera models, and more have made hologram businesses possible.
20. Computer Telepathy
No this is not a technological regression but a digital progression. This growing technology will soon be capturing thoughts and sharing them with the world, which is the BrainNet system that six scientists created at Washington State University. Their system is a direct interface collaboration of brains.
The exponential growth of disruptive technologies is happening at such a rapid speed mainly due to the accelerated convergence concept. The rapid growth has also boosted the interaction of diverse technological subgroups, who are now working on innovative, unique, and interesting opportunities.
