Title: Technology Predictions
Abstract: IEEE Computer Society (IEEE CS) has unveiled its annual Technology Predictions, addressing the long-lasting influence of the pandemic on tech advancements, new technology fundamentals, and anticipated trends shaping the industry for 2022 and beyond. No one can say with 100% certainty what path the future of technology will take, but IEEE CS experts in the field offer useful insights and predictions into some of the most influential possibilities. The top three tech trends that are anticipated to dominate in 2022 are datacentric AI, remote medicine, and health, safety, and wearable biomedical technologies.
Converging technologies increasingly play crucial roles in disruption and are becoming essential for our survival. Predicting technologies helps address pandemic impacts and concerns; it goes well beyond hypothetical exercise. The 2022 Technology Predictions provides a deep dive into each prediction with analysis of specific problems and current demands; the opportunities for the technology; the impact the technology will have on the public, products, services, and related technologies; and the sustainable solutions and business opportunities that it could potentially inhibit and/or enable.
