I believe technology will be a fundamental pillar in our near future, as it allows us to bring innovation and benefits in almost every area of our lives. Assuming the adoption trend of emerging technologies in the companies will be increasingly growing in the coming years, there are some of them that will have a predominant role over others. If I had to choose three major technologies, I would opt for the following ones:
– Artificial Intelligence, given its versatility to be applied in many fields providing multiple advantages;
– Internet of Things, since we are moving towards a world where people, objects and everything around us are interconnected;
– 5G, a catalyst to enhance broadband connectivity and to facilitate data exchange.

2025 is a long way out and for many their plans for digital transformation stretched out to 2025 with phases of change between now and t hen.  COVID has already changed the landscape for timelines and receptiveness to change.  The pain experienced recently has removed previously perceived barriers as the impact on businesses and customers has been felt. We have seen a first phase of tactical change to get to business as unusual. The longer term now is a more dramatic acceptance of new technologies that support remote working and agility, these will include an increase in automation, self serve and tools to enable staff and agents to serve customers without being tied to physically binding old technologies and processes.  We shall see telephony move mainstream into the cloud, cloud video conference technologies become mainstream and enhance their functionality greatly and a breadth of legacy on premise applications move to more elastic cloud based platforms.

Already we can see that big data infrastructure has to be in place and promoted to allow any type of new technology to take place. As everything is based on data, the strategy needs to be around storing, organizing, analyzing and creating value for all data. Once this is in place, we can think about many new technologies to implement. Obviously, AI and AI as a service will play a major role. Extended Reality (XR) will also be present everywhere to train employees, to engage customers and to prepare new products. Finally, IoT (Internet of things) will then be largely used to allow robots and connected objects to be traced and delivered. Customer experience will be enhanced. I also see 3d printing and computer vision to be present and play a major role.

There are 10 technology trends I see influenced by COVID: Online shopping with robot deliveries; Digital and contactless payment, Hybrid working environment; Distance learning with immersive education; Growing demand of telehealth; More on-line entertainment; Supply chain reform with big data, cloud computing and IoT; 3D printing breakthrough; Robotics and drones; and 5G. By 2025, I believe that AI, IoT and AR/VR will play a major role in multiplying our capacity to work better, smarter and helping us adapt to the new normal.

I believe 3 major technologies that will play a major role in 2025 are: AI, AR/VR, and 5G Network.

1. AI

AI is the battleground on which the long-term business success will be decided. AI-powered organizations are getting ahead. AI can develop your business models, relationships with customers, and marketing. 84% of brands say AI will enable them to reach a competitive advantage. AI will not only improve productivity, but also transform how we create growth.

2. AR/VR

Augmented reality allows customers to preview products or experience services in their normal lives before buying. 61% of online shoppers prefer to make purchases on sites that offer augmented reality technology, 30% say they would make them shop online more often. Worldwide spending on AR/VR will reach $18.8 billion in 2020, AR/VR will have 216 million users by 2025. Retailers expect to add AR/VR to enhanced product experience in the next 5 years. If you’re among top retailers integrating AR/VR to your business, you’re about to experience a growth in your sales. 70% of Snapchat’s users activate AR lenses daily. Instagram is bringing AR to its audience of 1 billion users. 9/10 of brands are expected to use AR in their campaigns.

3. 5G Network

5G is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices. 5G will be ”100X faster than 4G”. 7% of CSPs worldwide have deployed 5G infrastructure in the networks. Worldwide 5G infrastructure revenue will reach $4.2 trillion in 2020 – an increase from 2019.

There will be 340 million 5G connections in 2021 and 2.7 billion in 2025. 5G could change the customer’s data price point. 5G means richer content for brands and customers. Users 5G will benefit from unprecedented speeds and virtually unlimited connectivity to support an ever-growing IoT. 5G will drive economic growth – $12.3 trillion output of industry goods and services enabled by 5G and 22 million jobs will be created.

With the spread of 5G networks, many disruptive technologies will be unlocked and become affordable for everyone both at the company and consumer level.
Definitely we will see considerable growth in the adoption of Artificial Intelligence. This technology will be very different from how we know it today, it will be like an effective coworker that can deal with many tasks for you.
The second technology that will play a major role in 2025 will be the augmented reality. This technology is mainly for fun now, but thanks to the development of wearable devices, it will have a serious future.
Adoption of AR by 2015:
* Gaming
* Healthcare
* Engineering
* Live Events
* Video Entertainment
* Real Estate
* Retail
* Military
* Education
Last but not least, I think drones have the potential to improve urban air mobility by moving people and cargo faster, at a lower cost and in a sustainable way. In term of technology, a reliable network based on the blockchain could prevent that blocks of information, exchanged by unmanned aircraft in the global airspace, could be intercepted and altered by somebody else.

In a nutshell: AI, AR and IoT

The COVID‐19 pandemic has provided an in‐depth lesson in just how susceptible our human ecosystem is fragile today. This scenario has had predict the first global collaboration driven by technology.

5G, Robotic and Machine Learning (ML) & Artificial Intelligence (AI) joined to most important FinTech tools will contribute to better manage data protection and corporations’ operational transparency, speed and computing power e.g. for improving access to and quality in Healthcare, but on top for giving more efficiency in every highest levels of government of public and private sectors.

From now on, contactless is the word.

Any technology that allows us to carry out a task remotely or independently of the physical place where we are, is going to have a boom.

In this way, the IoT (which although more than a technology per se, is a concept that includes several) will allow us to have in control of our work and personal spaces on a permanent basis. Within this scheme robots and artificial intelligence will be extremely useful in what I would call augmented human presence. For the same reason, augmented reality will become part of our lives permanently.

Finally, we can intuit that the technology of autonomous cars (and auto-disinfectants) will extend to all activity that requires mobility, and in that sense we will have forklifts, tractors, cranes, airplanes, buses, and cruise ships. Although I see that these last three, and the decrease in costs that will have, will tend to evolve from mass transport to reduced and even individual to have greater control of contact between people.

The challenge for individual businesses is to determine which technologies will profoundly impact their market and business model. On a general level, rather than specific technologies, I believe clusters of technologies will come to the fore:
1. IoT, 5G and Edge-computing: we will see an acceleration in connectivity which will change customer experiences, underpin Industry 4.0. and lead to new products and services.
2. Big Data, AI, and Machine Learning: the ability to make informed decisions based on real-time information will become mainstream. The challenge for leaders is to address bias, really understand the basis for algorithmic-driven outcomes and minimise the potential for conduct risk at scale.
3. Virtual & Contactless Technologies: we have seen a huge shift in both organisational and consumer behaviours in recent months. We are likely to see many of these new behaviours become permanent features of then market with further innovation over the coming years.
