This is the right time to think about what awaits humanity in 2023. The tech world continues to develop at a rapid pace, and the impact of innovations on various industries is very significant. Let’s see which directions will be vital for the world.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML)
In 2022, OpenAI’s Dall-E and ChatGPT products allowed people to see the application of artificial intelligence in the real world. Although the industry continues to grow, humanity will only realize its value with the advent of consumer-oriented programs.
In particular, ChatGPT has impressed users with its ability to output detailed responses to queries, not just answering questions but actually providing useful content. In 2022, many people experimented with it, taking it as a toy. But others see this technology as a new way to speed up work processes.
If you work in IT and write Powershell scripts for standard admin tasks, ChatGPT can be very useful. If you’re into fitness and need help planning your meals for the week, ChatGPT is what you need. If you need help writing your resume, ChatGPT is also your friend. If you are a screenwriter and need new ideas, ChatGPT will be your friend here as well.
This is a true revolution in search and perhaps the first serious threat to Google’s dominance in many years. Currently, ChatGPT is limited to text only. But that’s not difficult to predict a future where text will be followed by images (Dall-E2).
There are also many third-party services based on the use of artificial intelligence. Some of them are starting to focus on the challenge of creating content for social networks, saving you time. It is likely that 2023 will be the first year in which we will see serious gains from artificial intelligence.
In 2023, the world of robots will undergo drastic changes. Many of us already have robot vacuum cleaners at home, and some have robot lawnmowers. But in 2023, we will see a boom in humanoid robots. With the arrival of the Tesla Bot, we can predict real competition in the field of humanoid robots for use in the workplace.
We’ve also seen Boston Dynamics working on this problem for over a decade. However, the combination of the economic depression and the difficulty in finding workers should significantly increase the development of humanoid robots this year. This could be very useful, particularly for work in areas associated with increased danger.
Despite the fact that we will have to wait a few more years until we can buy such a robot assistant for doing household chores, soon we will hear about the first cases of serious use of robots in factories.
Internet of Things (IoT)
Smart lighting is a very good thing. But the Internet of Things is really just getting started. We are moving towards a world in which devices connected to the network and able to exchange data with it will have major advantages. In some cases, it will also make sense to have the ability to remotely control and monitor. However, this comes with obvious security issues.
The 5G standard is currently already supported by many smartphones and not only flagship models.
In 2023, we should expect an increase in the number of devices with the option of connecting to mobile networks that will support the 5G standard. In particular, we are talking about laptops.
The deployment of 5G networks in 2022 has significantly accelerated. However, there are still many places in the world where 4G is the best connection option.
Cyber security and protection of confidential data
Last year was the worst in history in terms of cyber security. The reality is that attacks are increasing, and international political uncertainty is contributing to this. And while companies should learn from the well-known mistakes of the past, it’s likely that cybersecurity and data privacy news will continue to make headlines this year.
You can’t name a company that didn’t face an issue of a data leak. All tech bigwigs appear in this mire.
