As a tech expert, I always look ahead to predict future trends that will affect our digital world. In this blog, I’ll discuss a few technologies that will impact our lives next year.

 

AI Everything

Artificial intelligence will become a vital component of organizations in 2023. With its drag-and-drop interface, no-code AI will allow them to create more effective and intelligent products.

In the retail industry, we’re already seeing the emergence of AI-based platforms that help customers find the perfect clothes. For instance, fashion startup Stitch Fix uses AI to recommend products that are appropriate for their tastes.

In the future, autonomous and contactless shopping will be a huge trend. AI will allow consumers to pay for and receive their goods and services quickly.

In addition to improving the efficiency of various business processes, AI will also help retailers automate their inventory management. This trend will allow them to focus on their core business and deliver more effective and convenient services.

 

The Metaverse Will Become Real

According to experts, the metaverse is expected to contribute around $5 trillion to global economic growth by 2030. 2023 will be the year when the metaverse’s direction is defined.

In 2023, I predict that the rise of virtual and augmented reality will continue to affect our work environment. We’ll be able to create more immersive environments where we can collaborate and talk.

Companies such as Microsoft and NVIDIA are already developing platforms that will allow them to work together on digital projects.

In the new year, we’ll also see virtual and augmented reality advancements that will allow us to create more effective and interactive avatars. With the help of motion capture, we’ll be able to make more realistic and interactive characters.

 

Progression in Web3

In 2023, blockchain technology will continue to advance as companies start creating decentralized services and products.

Currently, we store all of our data in the cloud. However, using blockchain technology to encrypt and decentralize our data will allow us to analyze and access it more safely.

In the new year, non-fungible cryptocurrencies such as NFTs will become more practical and usable. For instance, if you’re going to a concert, you should use NFTs to purchase tickets. These could be the ones that allow us to interact with the various services and digital products that we buy.

 

Robots Becoming Human-Like

In 2023, robots will become more like humans in appearance and capabilities. They’ll be able to perform various tasks in the real world, such as serving as event greeters and bartenders. They’ll also be working alongside humans in factories and warehouses.

A company led by Elon Musk is currently developing a robot that can perform various tasks in our homes. At an AI Day event in September 2022, Musk revealed two prototype robots that can perform simple tasks such as watering plants and lifting items.
