At present, the development of technology continues to occur at a fairly rapid rate. Where every year some discoveries and technologies exist and are being improved to facilitate the activities of daily human life. In addition, the development process is also carried out by spending a lot of time on each process.
Unsurprisingly, there were already predictions about the occurrence of this technology trend before the official launch. As we enter the second quarter of 2022 itself, there are several technology trends forecast to be busy, some of which are already emerging. What are the technology trends? Come on, see the explanation below.
Augmented reality to fulfill online shopping activities
The first technology trend expected to increase is the use of augmented reality or AR for online shopping needs. In recent years, online shopping activities have continued to grow and become something that many people do, especially during the pandemic. Where everyone can buy clothes, gadgets, and other items without leaving home or just through a smartphone used.
Augmented reality itself is motivated by the weakness of online shopping, which makes it impossible for potential buyers to see or feel the goods to be bought, so it often encounters problems that do not match the appearance in online stores. AR technology allows potential buyers to see the appearance of goods in 3D to ensure they match those in online stores.
Use of virtual reality for everyone
Of course, the trend of AR technology is also followed by the development of VR or virtual reality technology, which is expected to be widely used by people this year. Whereas VR technology itself is currently only focused on supporting entertainment activities like watching movies or playing games. Of course, in 2022 the possibility of activities with VR devices will begin to be used.
For example, to support online meeting activities via Zoom or Google Meet when working from home. Whereby the appearance of the online meeting will appear more real and interesting.
AI technology is everywhere
Technological sophistication is certainly inseparable from systems that support computer activities for various activities. The presence of AI or artificial intelligence makes the system implemented by a device smarter and more efficient. This has had a major impact on the future viability of the technology industry in recent years.
No wonder the popularity of AI is expected to skyrocket in 2022, especially with the multiple uses of gadgets, applications, websites, and other things. For example, content recommendations that appear on each user’s social media screen are handled by AI.
Authentication without a password
The next technological trend will be to remove the role of passwords or passwords commonly used as security authentication methods. This is thanks to the increasing sophistication of AI, which makes it easier to crack passwords, including long passwords that contain a combination of letters and numbers.
Whereby this password authentication method is replaced by biometric authentication, which does not need to be updated every time and is more secure when there is an attack from irresponsible parties.
5G network goes mainstream
Sophisticated devices and technical systems will certainly not work without internet support with a stable and fast network. Therefore, this is inseparable from the role of the 5G network, where which will become a technological trend in 2022. Coupled with a large amount of YouTube content and other streaming services that already present video resolutions up to 4K, fast internet is required to support the smooth running of the streaming process.
This assumes that the 5G network itself has speeds above 4G by producing an average speed of 100 Mbit/s and a maximum of 20 Gbit/s.
Less programming activities when creating software
Someone must create software or applications that are easy to make. Technological trends will make it easier to design applications and software using fewer coding techniques. Although coding techniques still exist, these techniques will be able to reduce the development time of software.
In addition, it will make technology more accessible to everyone by allowing individuals to design software more easily.
What would happen if advanced technology had to sacrifice the environment? However, this is indeed reflected in the development of devices such as smartphones and laptops, which are made of certain materials or are less environmentally friendly. Therefore, in 2022, the technology trend begins to shift by giving priority to the concept of environmental friendliness.
For example, they would rather repair or use old equipment than have to replace it. If you are forced to replace a new product, these latest devices are also expected to come with better materials to increase durability so that they can be used for years.
