The arrival of new technologies can disrupt and significantly change the shape of entire industries. We look at Information Technology Trends to define 2020!
Below, we will discuss the top 5 information technology trends we can expect in 2020, and what we should do to prepare ahead.
#1 Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), and its many different applications from machine learning to computer vision to robotics, have been the popular buzzwords in the past couple of years or so, and not without its reasons.
The fact is, A.I. technologies have developed at an amazing — or alarming — rate for the past few years. On the one hand, it opens up many new opportunities. On the other hand, many people fear that A.I. will bring negative effects, especially on the issue of employment and the workforce.
In 2020 and onwards, we can expect this trend to continue, if not to grow even bigger than before, probably with the release of more mass-reaching A.I. applications.
While there can be various different implementations of A.I., in general, we can divide them into two big categories:
Here, the A.I. is implemented to collect and analyze data, including changes in real-time. As a result, A.I. can analyze data far faster than humans ever could, and then can take the necessary decision based on this data, or provide suggestions for human users.
A.I. is able to take automated actions based on its data analytics process and has the ability to reprogram itself — what we know as “machine learning”. This opens up many different automation applications that are previously unavailable, for example, A.I. can analyze the trends on social media networks and automatically generate an appropriate post to capitalize on the trend. A.I. is also powering some of the marketing automation tools that help businesses streamline their marketing.
As a result, A.I.-related IT careers are increasing in demand, and employees with properly equipped skills will be very valuable in 2020 and onwards.
