Top 5 technology trends in the next 5 years

Updated: Aug 24, 2023

The world is changing rapidly. We are entering a new age of technology, and it's only going to get more exciting. This article will look at the top 5 trends you should know about in the coming years.


6G is 5,000 times faster than today's average 4G connection speed. It will also be able to handle 5G's 1,000 times more traffic than its predecessor did. This means that you will be able to enjoy even better sound quality on your favourite songs or videos without any lag time between when you press play and when they start playing.

The report predicts that 6G will be so much faster than 5G that it will potentially reach one terabit per second with low latency and high reliability. It is believed that such data rates could support new wireless applications in virtual and augmented reality and will likely encourage researchers to seek more spectrum in higher frequency bands.

 6G can be used to support connected autonomous systems ranging from autonomous vehicles and drones to advanced robotics, augmented reality (AR) and hptic communications.

Applied Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the most critical technology trend in the next 5 years. It will transform the way we live and work. AI is already being used in many ways, including self-driving cars, smart home appliances, and digital assistants like Alexa or Siri.

The next big step for artificial intelligence is applied AI, which means using artificial intelligence to solve problems or make decisions based on data instead of just relying on logic or rules. For example, suppose you wanted to sell your house but had no idea how much it was worth because it wasn't listed yet. In that case, you could use an app that analyses previous sales in your neighbourhood with similar homes to determine their value today, so you could make an offer without having access directly to MLS listings. This would be an example of applied artificial intelligence because it uses existing algorithms or data sets as input rather than creating new ones from scratch whenever something new needs to be done, which consumes resources.

Behavioural Internet

The Internet of Behaviour is a future technology that will allow you to interact with objects around you using your body. It's one way to interact with the internet and one step closer to a world where we don't need screens or keyboards.

The Internet of Behaviour works like this:

When you're using an object such as a fridge, some sensors can detect your body movements and tell when they've been made (like when someone opens their hand). This allows for more natural interactions between people and objects. For example, instead of pressing buttons on an old-fashioned remote control system for TV shows or movies, users could use gestures instead. As well as being more convenient than typing in commands on a computer screen, which could have led us down another path towards virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift. It also means that companies won't necessarily have access to information about what people are doing when interacting with their products. So hopefully, those companies won't be able to sell stuff based on user activity history data either.

Brain-Computer Interface (BCI)

Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are the next step in human-computer interaction. These systems allow people to control external devices like computers or prosthetic limbs using only their brain activity.

BCIs have already been used for decades, but these new technologies will be more advanced than ever before. They'll help us control our appliances with just a thought and give us access to new forms of entertainment and even therapeutic applications like assisting patients to recover from traumatic brain injuries.

The idea of people interacting with devices is a pillar of BCIs, as BCI technology enables direct communication between the brain and external devices. In years to come, we may only be able to control our PowerPoint presentations with our brains. There have been some prototypes developed that can convert and translate brain activity into text or instructions for a computer. And as technology improves, we will see people using BCIs to write memos or reports at work.

Wireless Electricity

Wireless electricity is a form of energy transfer over a distance without the use of electrical cables. The technology is based on electromagnetic induction, which converts mechanical energy into electrical power.

This type of wireless power transfer can be used in any location where there is an access point, which can be building roof tops or towers, and a device that requires power, for example, electric cars, drones, and robots.

Think of the revolutionary impact of the wireless phone. Now imagine the same effect on power supplies. The future is one where power can be disconnected entirely and installed anywhere at a fraction of the cost. This will lead to an enormous disruption of the power distributors' monopoly.

Over the next five years, we will see fundamental changes in the way we power our homes, businesses, and infrastructure. Today, most things are physically connected to the electrical grid, which works like a main outlet. This is notoriously inefficient because 50% or more of the cost you pay for electricity goes to the grid, power cord, and distribution grid. Installation is costly, and ongoing maintenance costs are increasing every year.

We hope you enjoyed this list of five technologies that are sure to change our world. The fact is, there are so many other projects being developed right now, and we can't wait to see how they turn out. We know that every one of these developments will help us make our lives better in some way or another, whether it's saving time on repetitive tasks, creating new ways for people to interact with each other online, or just making life more convenient overall.

At Irish Taylor, we create and develop custom applications that perform tasks and add value to our customers. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have taken automation to the next level. We will assist clients in decision-making to either ‘Build’ or ‘Buy’ applications. we have also been active in updating software programmes.
