It’s safe to say that when you look back 30 years ago, technology has drastically evolved, and with technical experts continually pushing the boundaries, we are now at a stage of life where we are reaching a new era of digital technology!
As it stands IoT (Internet of Things) and AI are taking the digital world by storm, and we are physically benefitting from smart devices in all aspects of our lives. The most commonly used smart devices for the last 10 years have been mobile phones, but now we are seeing smart devices within our homes. Devices like the Amazon Echo can perform simple tasks all with voice recognition, whilst applications like the iPhone Home App allows you to control all Homekit accessories, such as turning off the lights and seeing who’s at the door. As for AI we already have an established presence of “dumb AI” as the experts would call it, like robots that are limited with cognitive experience on human interaction.
However with the succession of such smart devices, the IoT and AI market is now booming, with thousands of organisations competing to bring us the next big thing! Some companies such as IBM, have gone as far as to actually making specific predictions on just how far AI will go.

So as you can see, there are some really exciting ventures that lie in the future for all mankind, and it will be interesting to see how other areas of technology will drastically change again, by the time we get to 2022!
