The technology sector is booming like never before. Even if we don’t have flying cars yet, every new year brings technology changes that will affect our lives forever, from jobs to childcare to the environment. So, take notes – especially if you’re an investor – these are the biggest tech trends to watch out for in 2020!
No doubt you’ve heard about robots taking over every job imaginable. While it’s not quite that bad, robots are starting to take over many of the more menial tasks traditionally completed by humans. From simple cleaning to managing bank systems, machinery becomes more advanced with every year, and 2020 will be no different! While robots will certainly cost some labor jobs in the future, there’s no doubt that investing in them will bring in big bucks! Furthermore, robots and computers now communicate with each other, which could make even managerial jobs obsolete in the future!
3D Printing And Nano-Technology
Many of you out there probably already know a little bit about the world of 3D printing. However, its become even more incredible and easy, since its invention. Today, one can simply buy a printer, download a model online, and create anything from an innocent toy to real-life car parts! Now, scientists are working on combining nanotechnology and 3D printing, hopefully creating printable medical parts. In the next decade, doctors hope to be able to print out new pieces of skin or perhaps even limbs for patients. Not only will this create huge advances in medical science, but also big business!
Experts believe that education will become one of the things to change the most in 2020 and beyond. After all, the education world has changed drastically as a result of computer technology. Today, instead of reading an encyclopedia, children can use VR glasses to visit and learn about countries or conduct dangerous chemistry experiments. Of course, universities will also change. Today, more and more people are electing to learn online in their home rather than attending actual classes. Online classes cost less and open learning to more people who have busy schedules.
As a result of this explosion of learning, expect to see a new work economy. With more people learning, its possible we’ll see more young people enter the workforce sooner, and baby boomers re-enter the workforce.
Some think we’ve done everything we can with mobile apps, so they shouldn’t be on a top tech trends list. However, developers are currently working on the next evolution of mobile apps: apps that can control large-scale operations, like entire mine and agriculture systems. With app development now entering these massive sectors, expect to see more companies, and even banks, wade into the app-making industry.
Of course, these are just some of the tech trends to watch in 2020 and the upcoming decade. Investors know that changes can come at any time, so make sure to stay abreast of the latest news on sites like FinanceChatter!
