Taking A Look At The Top Tech Advancements On The Horizon For 2020

Love it or hate, technological progress is absolutely inevitable. Nothing stands in the way of the massive machine that is technology advancements.

In this article, we’ll take a look at the top tech advancements that you can expect to see dominating the headlines in 2020.

Artificial Intelligence

Advancements in artificial intelligence continue to make headlines as foremost technology advancements. Machine learning is applicable to a wide array of use cases. In manufacturing, machine learning can be used to identify what manufacturing processes and assembly line movements result in the greatest efficiency and productivity. In software, AI can be used to make recommendations on optimal use cases for the software.

In other, more media-centric applications, AI will be used to govern robot behavior. Never fear — Skynet taking over the world is still nothing more than a movie writer’s imagination. However, in 2020 there’s no doubt that you’ll see the use of artificial intelligence in robots that learn about and adapt to their environment.

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things, or IoT for short, essentially has to do with the interconnectivity of, well, everything. When something participates in the IoT, it is able to network with other systems around it.

This enables one to see the big picture of several different systems working together in unison. Indeed, the IoT actually will serve as a fundamental basis for many of the other top tech advancements on this list.

5G 

It’s been advertised pretty much everywhere already. In 2020, expect to see it take form. 5G will be the next advancement in cellular technology, promising far greater coverage, reliability, and speed that hasn’t yet been seen before in the industry so you can load your travel blog on the go.

2020 is the year of 5G. T-Mobile is already making significant advancements and other telecom companies are clearly following suit.

Self-Driving Vehicles

Anyone who’s even remotely in touch with the technological landscape knows that self-driving cars are indeed the future. The craze started with Elon Musk’s Tesla, a company that produces electric sedans and SUVs. More recently, the company has announced the addition of a truck to its lineup.

The cars that Tesla produces come with an autopilot feature, which allows the car to steer and accelerate/brake itself without inputs from the driver. This kicked off the self-driving trend, and now Google, Apple, and a myriad of other companies are developing self-driving automotive technology.

You’ll definitely be seeing more of the same in the near future. Some say that soon self-driving cars will prove to be so safe that no human-driven cars will be allowed on the road. While that is certainly still a far way off, it’s something that we will begin moving towards in 2020.

One thing is for sure: with these top tech advancements in store, 2020 is set to be an exciting year. Be sure that you keep abreast of technology news so that you don’t find yourself behind the curve this year.
