Once a thing only conceptualized in works of science-fiction, technology in any form is what more than half of the world’s populace are dependent on. This is most expressly true for the technology industry.
These are the top 8 trends that techpreneurs, engineers and tech experts discovered which will surely dominate the 2020 technology sphere.
Hyperautomation revolves around the application of cutting-edge technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), to progressively and swiftly automate processes and enhance human skill.
Multiexperience may replace technology-literate people with people-literate Industrial Technology and the traditional idea of a computer evolves from a single point of interaction to include multisensory and multitouchpoint interfaces like wearables and advanced computer sensors.
Democratization of Industrial Technology signifies offering people with easy access to practical business know-how without extensive and costly training. It revolves around 4 key pillars—application development, data and analytics, design and knowledge.
