Trends! 2030

Trends! 2030

New technologies are bringing major changes our way: robots, drones, Internet of Things, big data, 3D/4D printing, and cybercrime. These will change people, organizations and business models. Are you ready for it?

Company of the Future

Company of the Future

The world around us is changing rapidly. We see new technology left, right and centre and smart start-ups popping up all over the place. How does one, as an organization, deal with this rapidly changing world, dominated by exponential technology and ‘disruption’?

Construction

Construction

Construction was always a focus of mankind, from building simple shelters to skyscrapers. In future we will see spider drones flying and building bridges, workers connected with smart gloves and Google Glass, as well as robots doing the heavy lifting! Everything is fine while we can construct on Earth, but what when we start to colonize Space?

Healthcare

Healthcare

Technology in healthcare has proven to be one of the most progressive ones, even though it is a very sensitive sector. In future we will be able to be remotely diagnosed by a doctor through telemedicine applications, organs for transplantation will be 3D printed, and robots will operate our surgeries!

Retail

Retail

Shopping and retail has a huge effect on our lives and the way we function. Every change in technologies that impact the way we buy and sell, shows itself on humanity as a whole. In future retail is going to be based on Virtual buying and selling of products that we never saw in person.

Finance

Finance

Finance is one of the sectors that will be majorly influenced by future technologies. Your bank manager might be a robot, and when you enter a bank you might not see people in it, but only screens and virtual presence devices! Virtual currencies, sensors telling us if an accident will happen will all affect both banks and insurance companies.

Education

Education

Going forward, we might not have to take our kids to schools, as they will telecommute with their teachers; and use their laptops, tablets or other gadgets to digitally connect, do their homework, learn to write, and ultimately, pass examinations.

Energy

Energy

Future of energy will blow your mind away completely. Solar space farms will not be science fiction anymore, trees that light our parks such as lanterns and powering whole cities with a smart grid system, connecting all possible things and their electricity in one network!

Agriculture

Agriculture

Food is something the life forms of the entire world need in order to keep growing and sustain themselves. Agriculture is something that every man is accustomed with. Today, agriculture is run by machines, robots, and even drones! Robots can harvest, pick fruits or plant seeds.

Smart Cities

Smart Cities

Urban environment is what most people strive for these days – better jobs, better life, and opportunities. Smart cities are going to be a brand new world, connecting all devices with the Internet of Things (IoT), managing traffic, residential buildings and offices, as well as retail spaces and even schools!
