3 Predictions For The Future Of Technology

In this list, we’ll explore 3 predictions of what the future of technology will hold, regardless of whether they come true or not.

Technology seems to change and advance at breakneck speeds, but what exactly are we headed towards? What will the world look like in five years? 10 years? 50 years?

In the end, these predictions are just educated guesses; it’s impossible to know what will happen with technology in the future until it gets here. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of fun speculation to be had.

3 Predictions For The Future Of Technology

1. Technology will be more human

As tech continues to advance, people will see its real value—not just in our devices, but in each other.

Technology is becoming more human-centered, meaning we can expect to use it more and more not just as a means to an end (like making phone calls), but as an experience unto itself.

As our devices become closer to us—tailored specifically to our needs and even mimicking us in some ways—they’ll also continue getting closer to each other.

As tech becomes more human-centered, it will also start getting more social. Users have begun connecting their devices and sharing personal information, which means we will see an increase in artificial intelligence (AI) systems that work in tandem with people instead of simply replacing them.

For example, as AI becomes increasingly adept at conversing with humans, chatbots could one day become a vehicle through which users access services—like banking or customer service—by interacting with them like they would any other person.

We’re already seeing some early versions of these new forms of communication. Researchers from Facebook recently demonstrated a new form of group messaging called chatheads, where users can easily summon multiple friends onto their screen and quickly message all three at once.

2. Technology will be more personal

New devices will keep getting smaller, lighter, and more capable. We will wear them. They will be part of us. Our digital interactions will be less virtual and more human.

This trend is already visible in things like smartwatches and Google Glass. We’re already used to making video calls on our smartphones, and we know that soon we’ll have access to entertainment or computing power wherever we go; as long as we always have our smartphone with us.

But smartphones aren’t just more portable. They are also more intuitive, and allow us to do things that would have seemed like science fiction a few years ago.

Take Google Now, which is like having your own personal assistant that tracks where you are, what you need to do next, and what traffic will be like on your way there. It helps you stay up-to-date with your favorite news sources and learn about breaking news as it happens.

It can even remind you about sports events or upcoming appointments or remind you to buy tickets for them. It might seem crazy now, but these are all examples of technologies that people used to only dream about in sci-fi books—but soon they’ll be commonplace in our lives.

3. The Internet will be everything

The Internet has already become a platform that allows people to watch live video feeds from their favorite TV shows, play games with friends on opposite sides of the globe, and connect with other people with similar interests. Over time, it’s likely that more apps will utilize Internet infrastructure to create new experiences—including ones we haven’t even thought up yet.

It’s important to remember that there will be more innovation in how we use our computers and smartphones than how they work under the hood.

After all, we’re used to using Internet-connected computers—and it may take a lot more than 4K video streaming or instant downloads to get us excited about them again.

At least not anytime soon. So while some techies are busy trying to push processors past their physical limits, others are looking beyond processors to develop truly innovative computing experiences.

It’s possible that virtual reality headsets—like Facebook’s Oculus Rift or Google Cardboard (which turns your smartphone into a VR headset)—could pave the way for brand new ways of experiencing media content .

While current VR is immersive enough on its own, creating an augmented version could open up even more possibilities for inventing new apps and programs.
