AI, Machine Learning, 5G, and IoT Will be the Top Technologies in 2022
According to a new study (same done by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in the last year), Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, 5G, and the Internet of Things (IoT) would be the top technologies in 2022.
IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity and released the results of a survey of Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Technology Officers (CTOs) in the U.S., U.K., China, India, and Brazil regarding the most important technologies for 2021 overall, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the speed of their technology adoption and the industries expected to be most impacted by technology in the year ahead.
The technical professional organization released the results of a survey of Chief Information Officers (CIO) and Chief Technology Officers (CTO) in the US, the UK, China, India, and Brazil.
The survey was on the most important technologies for 2021, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the speed of their technology adoption, and the industries expected to be most impacted by technology. The result of that survey is the same for 2022.
Which were the top technologies in 2021? Among total respondents, nearly one-third (32%) say AI and machine learning, followed by 5G (20%) and IoT (14%).
Manufacturing (19%), healthcare (18%), financial services (15%), and education (13%) are the industries that most believe were being impacted by technology in 2021, according to CIOs and CTOS surveyed.
At the same time, more than half (52%) of CIOs and CTOs see their biggest challenge in 2021 as dealing with aspects of COVID-19 recovery in relation to business operations. These challenges include a permanent hybrid remote and office work structure (22%), office and facilities reopenings and return (17%), and managing permanent remote working (13%). However, 11% said the agility to stop and start IT initiatives as this unpredictable environment continues will be their biggest challenge. Another 11% cited online security threats, including those related to remote workers, as the biggest challenge they see in 2021.
So based on previous studies and current market trends, AI, Machine Learning, 5G, and IoT Will be the Top Technologies in 2022.
