1. Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) and Deep Learning
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning are probably the most happening fields in computer science engineering and every other technology today. Deep learning is an integral part of AI, which imitates how humans think and learn, using deep neural networks that can be trained to understand patterns in data by performing complex mathematical operations. With this technology, machines can make decisions on their own as well as do human-like tasks.
Deep Learning for NLP
Voice-driven smart assistants are becoming increasingly popular with Siri, Cortana, Alexa and Google Home gaining momentum. This trend will only grow by 2022 with Deep Learning paving the way for the development of more sophisticated voice-based systems that will have a wider application than just being digital assistants. Machines will be able to conduct conversations much like humans do!
Deep Learning for Computer Vision
With the rise of autonomous vehicles, video surveillance systems etc., computers must be able to interpret what they see as you or I would so that they can take appropriate actions accordingly. Thanks to Deep Learning algorithms computers can be made smarter to recognize objects in images/videos which is a huge breakthrough in this field. With these abilities at their disposal, computers can help doctors diagnose diseases based on medical images or assist drivers by detecting pedestrians or road blocks ahead or even help self driving cars navigate the roads safely!
2. Autonomous Cars
This technology trend is huge: autonomous cars use a combination of sensors, cameras, and artificial intelligence to navigate the world around them. As you might suspect, these self-driving vehicles will have a huge impact on the future of transportation.
Autonomous cars do not require human drivers or passengers—they are fully driverless and can be used as either transportation or delivery services. The first autonomous vehicle was developed in the 1980s by Carnegie Mellon University’s Navlab project, but it wasn’t until 2009 that the first commercial car featuring driver assistance technology became available to consumers (in the form of adaptive cruise control).
Since then, we’ve seen rapid progress in automotive autonomy, with more and more manufacturers releasing cars with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as lane departure correction and blind spot warning.
3. DNA Data Storage System
A DNA data storage system is an emerging technology trend for 2022. You may be familiar with the conventional forms of data storage, such as hard disks or solid-state drives (SSDs). These kinds of data storage systems are not efficient in terms of their cost and the amount of information they store.
The DNA data storage system is a promising technology that can store massive amounts of information in an extremely small space. The DNA molecules are used to store the digital information in a more efficient way than current technologies, such as magnetic tapes and SSDs. A single gram of DNA can store about 455 exabytes (EB) – that’s about 100 million times more than what’s found on a Blu-ray disc!
4. Quantum Computing
Quantum computing is a new and emerging field of computer science. It’s based on the idea that data can be represented as tiny particles called quantum bits, or qubits, that can process information. Quantum computers are so powerful that they can solve problems that are impossible for today’s computers because they use the properties of atoms and molecules to store information.
In 2022, we expect to see organizations using supercomputers powered by quantum technology in fields such as drug discovery and research, financial services and material science. The hype around this technology has been building for a long time, so it will be exciting to see how it takes off in 2022.
5. Robotic Process Automation
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a form of technology that helps to automate the work of humans. It can be used by companies to perform tasks which would normally need human beings to do. Software robots make decisions in the same way as humans, and are able to work with technology like databases and spreadsheets in exactly the same way as people. They are able to complete repetitive tasks, such as entering data into a database or spreadsheet, much more efficiently than people.
6. Flying Cars
As the pace of technological development continues to accelerate, new breakthroughs are coming at us faster than ever. Flying cars have always been a sci-fi staple—and now, they’re finally starting to become a reality. While flying cars still face many challenges in terms of safety and cost, the potential for them is huge. If flying cars can overcome their obstacles and be widely adopted, here are six ways that they could impact our daily lives:
- Flying cars will help battle traffic congestion. Your commute was already an hour long when you had to leave two hours early just to account for traffic. Now you’ve got access to an autonomous flying car instead of that old clunker, so your trip into work only takes 15 minutes!
- Flying cars will save lives. By eliminating or greatly reducing human error in driving, faster transportation options (like flying) will lead to fewer accidents and deaths on the roadways.
- You’ll be able to travel much longer distances in less time. Instead of having to take three different flights with multiple layovers just to get from Chicago to Portland, you can book one flight directly there?in a matter of minutes! The possibilities are endless!
7. Bit-Coin and Cryptocurrency
- Bitcoin is the first successful implementation of a distributed crypto-currency, described in part in 1998 by Wei Dai on the cypherpunks mailing list. Building upon the notion that money is any object, or any sort of record, accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts in a given country or socio-economic context, Bitcoin is designed around the idea of using cryptography to control the creation and transfer of money, rather than relying on central authorities.
- Cryptocurrencies use decentralized control as opposed to centralized digital currency and central banking systems. The decentralized control of each cryptocurrency works through distributed ledger technology, typically a blockchain that serves as a public financial transaction database.
The first decentralized cryptocurrency, bitcoin was created in 2009 by pseudonymous developer Satoshi Nakamoto. It used SHA-256, a cryptographic hash function, as its proof-of-work scheme. In April 2011, Namecoin was created as an attempt at forming a decentralized DNS, which would make internet censorship very difficult. Today there are other cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin (which uses scrypt instead)
8. Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services over the Internet (“the cloud”). It’s quickly becoming mainstream: if you use an online service to send email, edit documents, watch movies or TV, listen to music, play games, or store pictures and other files, it’s likely that cloud computing is making it all possible behind the scenes. Cloud computing is all about storing, managing and processing data on a network of remote servers hosted on the internet rather than on your computer’s hard drive. The cloud is like a central data bank where information can be stored and accessed by multiple users simultaneously.
As an emerging trend for 2022, cloud computing will become increasingly prominent in business thanks to its ability to enhance teamwork and collaboration. Cloud-based projects are accessible anytime from anywhere via any device with internet connectivity and can be worked on collaboratively by team members simultaneously. These advantages make cloud-based options attractive for companies that want to improve communication between employees working remotely from different locations as well as for those who have temporary staff such as freelancers who only need limited access to tools and apps for short periods of time.
Autonomous cars are a great example of artificial intelligence, which is one example of the emerging trends and technologies for 2022.
