The rapid advancement in technology has provided people with new tech to assist us in every aspect of our lives. For example, the idea of ‘Siri’, a virtual assistant that you can speak to would be unheard of in the early 2000's.
So, what's next in terms of new tech? This is a difficult question to answer, but here are some predictions of tech that could be developed by 2030.
AR (Augmented Reality)
Today, Augmented Reality has been used by stores such as Argos & IKEA to showcase their products in your home, in real time. By 2030, this will advance further and customers will rely on AR for online shopping. AR will provide a more immersive and realistic experience for users.
AI (Artificial Intelligence)
From the use of Alexa, Chat GPT and even a simple Google Search, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has a secured itself a spot in everyday life. By 2030, it is predicted that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning will be an even more prominent part of society. AI Robots will become more able and versatile, allowing them to perform a wider range of tasks in human-like ways, including healthcare procedures, waiting staff and self-driving cars.
Significant advances of the Metaverse are predicted to occur by 2030. Avatars in the Metaverse will become more realistic and you will be able to connect with others in a more human-like way. The introduction of 5G networks will allow for high-speed communication and therefore the metaverse will become more accessible to users. It will be used by more people and businesses, even helping to provide services such as retail, healthcare, work and education. It is predicted that in 2030, the Metaverse will become fundamental in how we live our everyday lives.
As the world continues to adapt to advancements in tech, careers in tech will need to adapt alongside it. For example, there may be an increased demand for skills in Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality and Machine Learning. As the Metaverse and Virtual Reality become more realistic, there will be a growing requirement for people skilled in 3D modelling, animation and development. Furthermore, there will be a constant demand for Cyber Security jobs to protect businesses from cyber attacks and IT Systems Analyst jobs to make sure that all devices are working correctly.
