In my view as a futurist, I foresee the most important digital developments that will affect the next few months each year. What excites me most about business and society in 2022 is all the fresh ideas and discoveries that will be made.
The following are the top 10 I.T. trends for the upcoming year, as determined by our research and discussions with clients and colleagues:
- The output of the CPU
In 2022, computing power will soar. Many firms are moving to the cloud now that it has more infrastructure.
5G and 6G networks are now being installed, while the latter is expected in the future. As a result, our mobile devices, automobiles, and wearable tech will have greater power.
- Superior Science and Engineering
The ability to process more data allows for more intelligent gadgets. Autonomous vehicles, intelligent televisions, and more sophisticated robots are all now available to help people with a wide range of chores.
Intelligent household robots, for example, will become increasingly commonplace in 2022. Read more about Humanoid Robots.
- Both Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
Nowadays, businesses and academics pool their data and computer resources in an effort to improve artificial intelligence.
Machine vision is a major trend in artificial intelligence. Objects in photographs and films may now be distinguished by computers. Additionally, robots can now understand and respond to human speech thanks to advances in language processing. More details on A.I. and M.L.

Our mobile devices’ augmented reality (A.R.) capabilities have increased, and virtual reality (V.R.) is becoming more popular (V.R.). By 2022, we’ll be using glasses-like gadgets that link to our phones and provide us with better V.R. experiences while we’re on the road rather than bulky equipment that needs constant WiFi connections.
- Choice in the digital workplace boosts productivity and happiness.
The workplace has changed. People used to be very interested in new technical developments. Both at work and for fun, people are frequently surrounded by technology. Individuals’ definitions of “hybrid working” vary. Not that employees must spend equal time at work and at home, but that they are free to choose their own work-life balance is meant to convey.
- The pace of technological change necessitates a cultural shift.
Low-code/no-code platforms have grown in popularity in recent months. As a result, the time and costs involved with software development are reduced for new users who can quickly prototype, iterate, and modify programs. It’s also possible to speed up large-scale digital transformation initiatives. Today’s app developers are members of the so-called “iGeneration,” a group of young, tech-savvy professionals who aren’t afraid to go out and create new kinds of digital products.
- So much more power than ever before
As the last point, there are new energy options available. Future developments in car batteries and nuclear energy, as well as green hydrogen, are expected. We will be able to supply electricity to ships, aircraft, trains, and the general public using these new technologies.
For developing a method of genome editing, Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer A. Doudna will share the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. There will be a lot of focus on genomics and gene editing in 2022. They allow us to change crops, treat and eradicate illnesses, manufacture new vaccines like COVID-19, and more.
- Metaverse real estate concepts from physical to virtual
Avatars allow users to engage with one another and their surroundings in a virtual realm called the metaverse. Non-fungible virtual assets can be owned and traded on the blockchain in a few countries (NFTs). Organizations expect a dramatic shift once the metaverse’s technology is in place. To understand the metaverse, leaders must first understand it as a new notion. However, it should not be dismissed as science fiction garbage.
- Transparency in the user interface
For see-through transparent display, LCD and LED are the two main options. Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are a relatively recent technology. While this may be the case, transparent OLED panels are becoming more common in the consumer electronics industry nonetheless.
Technology has the potential to revolutionize and reinvent business in an increasingly linked world. Rising digital trends may help us deal with difficult business issues and build a more egalitarian and resilient society as we prepare for a post-pandemic future.
