There are still a couple of months left for 2021 to end, but depending on how this year is going, we can outline what some of the technological trends could be for 2022, so we have made a list of the main ones that we consider could mark a before and after. then in our way of interacting, working and communicating.
Although we have heard, seen in documentaries or have read about some of the trends on the list and we see that they are usually presented as such every year, it might sound repetitive, but considering that technological progress is so dizzying from one year to another , we could understand that they are technologies in constant evolution and perhaps recently, in 2022, their approach could be massive.
- Artificial Intelligence: From the voice recognition that our smartphones have incorporated to taxi applications, we currently live surrounded by artificial intelligence and it has been promoting the automation of processes, but by 2022 greater automation is expected that will allow the creation of code of software.
- Augmented Reality: Currently there are different types of articles that have augmented reality, such as the latest generation iPhone or applications such as the one from IKEA that allows you to scan part of its catalog in 3D or the Converses app that allows you to see how you fit some sneakers . Advances allow this technology to cover many sectors of the market with great projection, such as entertainment, health, retail, among others.
- Holograms: Perhaps the first time that many of us saw or understood that it was a hologram was when we saw “Star Wars” when Princess Leia appeared projected through R2-D2 to give a hopeful message. A closer event was the presentation of a life-size elephant in the German Roncalli circus, which is undoubtedly something amazing, and perhaps the possibility of having a holographic transmission in real time, and massive, through smartphones, is not very far away. something that ZTE and Orange already did in a presentation this year thanks to the 5G network.
- Blockchain: Although it is nothing new, as we discussed in our previous blog, the block chain is a technology that will revolutionize the internet and is establishing itself as a platform for cryptocurrencies, being a large accounting book where all the transactions that are encrypted and practically immutable, and perhaps the most important thing about it, is that it will not have a central server for the records, but rather any node or computer that is connected to the network can act as a server and will have a copy of the transactions.
- M-Commerce: Also known as mobile commerce, it is part of electronic commerce, but with the feasibility that allows it to reach many more customers because the vast majority of them have a smartphone and can make purchases at any time from the app. a store, responsive web or social networks, the latter is something that is growing rapidly. It is also expected that online transmissions will be deepened through streaming to show products from a store, something that emerged during this pandemic.
- Robotics: Robots endowed with artificial intelligence will undoubtedly give a lot to talk about next year as they are beginning to gain more relevance due to their multiple qualities for different tasks. For example, last June the company Boston Dynamics put up for sale “Spot” its first robot dog that is used for primary use in the industrial sector, as well as to serve as support in emergency situations; or “Scout” from Amazon, which is a kind of portable refrigerator that aims to make short deliveries. There is also the case of “Sophia”, a humanoid robot from Hanson Robotics Limited that starred in a campaign to promote bottled water for a Spanish company.
- Total Experience (TX): It is considered as a comprehensive business strategy or multiple experiences such as customer (CX), user (UX) and employee (EX) with the aim of not only optimizing customer service, but also providing a better environment for employees and users through trust and communication.
- Remote and hybrid work: Although remote work is not new, with COVID19 we have taken it for granted, but for 2022 (post-pandemic period) there is a model that is taking shape: Hybrid model, which combines remote days as in the office. This modality will allow entrepreneurs who want to create their own #starup to continue generating opportunities, being able to have face-to-face days of coordination, directory or presentation with clients, but internally it has different collaborative work platforms to continue connected from anywhere such as: Google Drive , Trello, Miro, Figma, Zoom, among others.
In general, 2022 is presented as a year of maturity and massive exposure for some technologies, without taking away how disruptive they may be or precisely, now that they are beginning to have a greater scope, is when the change will be most noticeable, which is a great benefits for many sectors as well as the staff.
