Earlier this year, ABI Research held its 2022 Technology Summit. The event was a gathering of the best and brightest from around the globe. They gave the crowd their due with nine presentations that focused on key technologies and market drivers. They were also on hand to provide a plethora of data-driven insights from their team of global analysts.
One of the most exciting parts of the event was the buzz around the topic of “the future.” There are a number of factors that will drive the next decade, and we can expect technology to play an ever-increasing role in our lives.
Technological Developments in the 20th Century
Throughout the 20th century, technological developments in the United States played an important role in the development of the economy. These developments ranged from new materials to more complex technologies.
During the 19th century, innovations were based on trial and error experimentation. In the twentieth century, technological developments relied on formalized knowledge and R&D. This was especially true for the development of electronics.
In the early twentieth century, the intellectual property market played an important role in the development of new technologies. In addition, public and private investments supported the creation of new knowledge and the development of higher education infrastructure.
Technological Developments in the 21st Century
Whether it’s wireless technology, artificial intelligence, or 3-D printing, technological developments in the 21st century are making our lives easier. They allow us to communicate with each other, access educational resources, and learn new ways to do things.
In the past 40 years, the evolution of digital technology has completely replaced analog technology. This has allowed us to watch television, listen to music, use the Internet, and communicate through mobile devices.
Throughout history, humans have always innovated. From building fires to creating stone-tipped arrows, we’ve always tried to find new ways to improve our lives. In the 21st century, we’ve seen new technological advances that have made living more enjoyable for millions of people around the world.
Future Trends in Technology
Almost every industry is impacted by the latest technology trends. As these technologies become more advanced, businesses will need to reskill, train and educate their employees on them to ensure that they are prepared for the future.
The next generation of employees will need training on artificial intelligence, cloud computing, Internet of Things, robotics, virtual reality and augmented reality. They will also need to learn about blockchain technology and how it can transform their businesses.
These technologies are creating amazing new possibilities for customers and businesses alike. As they evolve, we will see more and more opportunities to capture “momentary markets”. These technologies will also change advertising and customer analytics.
