What innovations in mobile technology are expected by 2020?
Here I explained innovation in mobile technology in 2020 and to know more about mobile technology visit this site.
Internet of everything
It will no longer be just the internet of things.
It will be the "internet of everything" and "everywhere".
This is what Yobie Benjamin believes, chosen as the technological pioneer of 2015 by the World Economic Forum: " The emotion of the internet of things will be a small footnote to our reality".
The industry of operators and suppliers faces the challenge of developing the next generation of
mobile telecommunications , which will succeed the current 4G.
The arrival of the new standard will have an important impact on the entire sector, transforming it forever.
According to Cisco forecasts, it is expected that by 2020 there will be more users in the world with mobile devices(5,400 million) than people with access to electricity (5,300 million), drinking water (3,500 million) or vehicles (2,800 million).
And why does the world need 5G? The 5G mobile networks will be about 250 times faster than the 4G.
If the 4G now reaches average speeds of 100 or 200 megabits per second in the most advanced networks, with the 5G it is expected to reach
5 gigabits and even 10 gigabits , well above, even, of what now offer the best fixed fiber optic networks.
Five gigabits per second is equivalent to transmit a complete DVD in 15 seconds.
South Korea promises 5G services at the Winter Games (2018) and Tokyo at the Olympic Games two years later.
This will not only optimize the connection of smartphones, but also interact with robots, drones and cars at a distance , improve streaming music and video, favoring wearables and even smart sensors installed in cities to control traffic or pollution levels.
In addition, this technology will make the definitive leap for holographic multimedia , distance education and platforms for telemedicine.
In short, this evolution is essential for other revolutions.
A smart watch is no longer strange.
But how about a pill to unlock connected devices?
Motorola (today Lenovo) began its development in 2013. This smart pill will allow access to them without the need to enter a password.
We also work on electronic tattoos or even on chips to insert into the brain.
Some examples will seem ridiculous and others frightening, but many projects of this type foresee to be available in 2020.
For that year, the dominant trend will be that of personal safety devices and smart clothes .
A report by Ericsson ConsumerLab predicts that one in three users will use at least five wearables by that date to monitor vital health data, open doors, authenticate transactions and identity and a thousand other uses.
Spare parts
The members of the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC), an American society of young entrepreneurs, made a list of 12 industries, products and services that will not exist by 2020 : conventional taxis, mail (courier, not parcel service), paper, mobile phones, credit cards, movie theaters, physical storage devices (USB, DVD, etc.), health insurance agencies, cable television, the manufacture of wallets and workers in food restaurants fast
All will be replaced by a technological solution.
Some programmed obsolescence is clearer than others.
Services like Uber and Netflix and electronic means of payment are already doing their part.
Regarding the disappearance of smartphones, the YEC specifies that there will be no distinction between mobile data and telephone line.
Internet will dominate everything .
Technological advances have long revolutionized the world of work, and advances in artificial intelligence arouse growing fears that machines will replace an increasing number of workers, even those with skilled jobs.
A study in 2013 of the University of Oxford applied to 700 professions in the United States concluded that 47% were at high risk of becoming automated trades.
The data was corroborated by a study by the McKinsey Institute, according to which "about half" of the activities in the world of work "could potentially be automated if current technologies are adapted."
But 2020 is still too soon.
The fearsOf course, there will be a price to pay for greater connectivity .
Privacy and cybersecurity concerns are already a problem for individuals, businesses and governments alike.
When the number of connected devices is tripled, security threats will be a very important issue.
According to the consultant Gartner, in 2020 people will have more
conversations with virtual assistants than with their respective partners.
American Life Project, a report by the Pew Research Center on the impact of technology on humans in 2020, revealed that 42% of respondents were downright pessimistic about the ability of humans to control technology .
The document also speaks of the emergence of a new social group called refuseniks .
The term, typical of the Cold War, was used for those Soviet Jews (though not exclusively) who were denied permission to leave the USSR;
then it happened to be used with irony to point out any type of protester.
In 2020, the new refuseniks will choose to live outside the network .
It is expected that some will demonstrate silently, but others will commit acts of terrorism "against technological change".
There is no doubt that the world will look very different in three years.
In technological times it is, in reality, an incredibly long time.
2020 represents a chronological end point for projects that have gained momentum in the last 10 years.
But innovation happens daily, so, while 2020 seems exciting, so will 2017, 2018 and 2019.
Fully autonomous cars
There are so many companies fighting to be the first to have a car without a driver that you do not have to wait three years for things to get interesting.
In 2017 more manufacturers will offer automatic pilots, like the one that has already, with time constraints, Tesla .
In 2018 the automatic overtaking and lane change function will be added.
However, 2020 has been marked as the year of the arrival of totally autonomous vehicles.
Google, Uber, Nissan and Mercedes Benz , just to name four competitors, are planning to launch their models in which neither the pedals nor the steering wheel are necessary.
The technology is expected to reach maturity between
2025 and 2030 .
Artificial intelligence has more and more human features and there is no better example than robots.
The ability of automata to carry out complex tasks, previously assigned to people, has led to the belief that many jobs have their days numbered.
Robots will have a significant impact on business and people's lives, and it will not be long before they change the paradigm in which we operate as a society.
Last year, the research firm International Data Corp announced its main predictions for global robotics for the coming years.
By 2020, the growth of this industry will lead to an increase in the number of jobs related to robotics by 35% , while the average salary will rise by 60%.
By then, robotics is expected to face regulation by governments in order to preserve jobs and address security and privacy concerns.
In 2020, the Olympic Games in Japan (the country with the most patents in artificial intelligence) will offer an exceptional opportunity for a
broad deployment of robotics , exposing this technology to its full potential.
3d print
3D printing, by which a three-dimensional object is created by superimposing layers of material, is a growing technology that has opened a new door of possibilities in different industries, and health is one of the most outstanding in allowing printing of organs and prostheses.
As the inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil told CNN, 2020 will be a year of takeoff for 3D printers , which will be the next technological revolution.
This new manufacturing system will bring great changes in current business models.
According to an analysis by technology consulting firm Gartner, it is expected that 6.7 million 3D printers will be sold in 2020.
The IDC company also predicts that the sector will generate US $ 35,000 million in income for that date.
The revolutionary means of transport devised in 2012 by the founder and CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk , was labeled by many as a fantasy. However, the invention is closer and closer to being a reality. In theory, Hyperloop would propel a vehicle through a reduced pressure tube reaching high speed .
According to Musk, you could travel from Los Angeles to San Francisco in just 30 minutes (a trip that takes an hour by plane and six hours by car).
In recent years several interdisciplinary teams have been created whose task is to advance in the necessary technology to make the concept thought by Musk the transport of the future.
According to the company TransPod, one of the companies that works in the development of this means of transport, 2020 could be the year in which the first operational and commercially viable Hyperloop is inaugurated.
There is talk of Dubai (United Arab Emirates) as its possible location.
There have also been talks about possible routes in China and Russia .
Quantum computers
According to the IBM technology company , the construction of a functional computer based on the principles of quantum mechanics will be a reality in a few years. Quantum computing is based on cubits and has a higher processing speed than an ordinary computer .
A quantum computer works in parallel, solving an exponential number of tasks simultaneously, while a normal PC does it sequentially, one at a time.
The practical applications of quantum computing are endless and their impact on the pharmaceutical industry and artificial intelligence promises to revolutionize these industries, improving the quality of life of human beings.
In addition, it will facilitate the understanding of the fundamentals of modern physics.
