2022 Flashback in Technology



We live in an era when things are happening in a fast-forward fashion. Out of the several industries, the technology industry faces a swift transition every year as time goes on. It becomes very important to note the swift progress as it helps in keeping a track of everything that has taken place in a particular period. The fast changes in technology make life easy and it helps in reducing costs, improving the overall experience of the consumers, and also in increasing profits. Especially after the phase of COVID-19, the technology platform has taken a significant place in almost all operations being performed in the world. This helps in boosting up the technology transformation process. Familiarity with new technology takes a vital process in advancing progress in every other industry and in exploring newer research areas for further improvement. The most significant trends in the field of technology in 2022 are mainly Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Robotics Process Automation, Edge Computing, Quantum Computing, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, Blockchain, and so on.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence refers to the ability of computers to mimic human cognitive functioning systems like learning and problem-solving. In Artificial Intelligence, the computer uses mathematics and logical reasoning to stimulate the reasoning the people would obtain from the computers and make decisions. Machine Learning involves the use of mathematical models of data to help a computer learn without direct instruction. This helps the computer to learn and improve on its own with the help of experience. An application of Artificial Intelligence is Machine Learning. A computer performs its tasks on its own and thinks like a human using Artificial Intelligence but uses Machine Learning to develop its artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are used in almost every industry, from retail to banking and finance, from cybersecurity to sales and marketing, and so on. They help in faster decision-making, increase the efficiency of operations, and so on.

Robotics Process Automation (RPA) is a form of business process automation technology that is based on software robots (bots), artificial intelligence, or digital workers. Robotics Process Automation tools are way too similar to the graphical user interface testing tools. This ensures easy maintenance, deployment, and building of software robots to stimulate human actions interacting with digital systems and software. It ensures proper workflow thereby making the industries more flexible, profitable, and responsive. RPA helps in work satisfaction, work output or productivity, and engagement.

Edge computing involves the distribution of computing paradigms that brings computation and data storage even closer to the sources of data. This improves the timings of the responses and saves bandwidth. Edge computing is an architecture and a topology and location-sensitive type of distributed computing. Edge computing is an emerging computing paradigm that refers to a range of networks and devices close to the user. Edge involves processing data closer to where it is being generated that enables processing at high speeds and volumes which ultimately leads to greater action-led results in real-time.

Quantum Computing

Quantum Computing involves operations that can provide the phenomena involved in quantum mechanics such as superposition, interference, and entanglement. The present-day quantum computers are too small to perform these operations but larger models are expected to solve larger computation problems. The study of quantum computing comes under quantum information science. Quantum Computing uses the principles of quantum theory. Quantum Computing involves qubits. The power of quantum computers grows with an increase in the number of qubits.

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

Augmented reality and Virtual Reality are two very important terms in the growing digital world. Augmented Reality involves combining the real elements with the digital world. Best suited for desktops and mobile devices, augmented reality adds virtual elements to the real world. Augmented Reality or AR displays different digital components in the real world. Computer vision, tracking of depth, mapping, and so on are included in this process. This enables the display of digital content for the users. 

Augmented Reality offers a wide range of possible outcomes for private and business users. Special applications can embed texts, images, and videos. Virtual Reality is a computer-generated stimulation. This helps in the generation of a virtual world. By using Virtual Reality or VR, a person can interact in the virtual world. Two lenses between the user and the screen help in this stimulation. Virtual Reality plays a very important role in the field of video games. This is used widely in the military, sports, and medicine.

Blockchain is a distributed user technology that involves lists of records called blocks, that are linked with the means of cryptography. Blockchains are managed by peer-to-peer networks of computers for their usage as a publicly distributed ledger. Blockchains are distributed databases that involve sharing between the nodes of computer networks. Secured by design, blockchains display a distributed computer system occupied by high Byzantine fault tolerance. Blockchains are significant in the systems of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoins as it helps in maintaining decentralized records of transactions. Bitcoins and Ethereum are the best examples of Blockchains. They help in connecting users on a virtual platform and make transactions through them.

It can be noted that these trends are the most important trend-setters of 2022. The advancements in technology go hand in hand with the results of decreased cost and improved customer experience. These trends in the technological sectors play a vital role in impacting the other sectors that overall affect the progress and lifestyle of the human race. This indirectly leads to the dependence of human beings on technology. All these technological trends help in setting the steps for future advancements and in the exploration of new niches that would help in the smooth progress of the economy. Especially in the post-COVID-19 period, technology has taken a major turn as it now affects almost all the vital sectors and virtual platforms have become one of the most common platforms where users can meet and carry out daily work processes, economic and commercial work processes, and daily activities. Be it making daily purchases or be it investments in stocks and shares, technology has become a very significant platform that helps in the carrying out of these operations.
