Technology is constantly advancing and improving the way we work and live. Here are some critical trends that will affect the digital world in 2023.
In 2023, AI will become vital to every organization’s operations, allowing them to create more effective and efficient products and services.
In the retail industry, we’re already seeing the rise of AI in the form of fashion recommendations. For instance, fashion startup Stitch Fix uses AI to help its customers find the ideal clothes.
Another key trend that will affect the digital world is the rise of autonomous and robotic delivery. AI will allow consumers to receive and pay for goods and services without going through traditional channels.
In addition to improving the efficiency of every business process, AI will also help retailers automate their inventory management. This will allow them to focus on their core business and deliver more effective and efficient services. Some of the most common use of AI in retail are buy-online-pick-up-at-your-curbside, buy-online-return-at-store, and BOPIS.
In addition, retailers will start using AI to implement new autonomous delivery initiatives. This will require more workers to get used to working with machines.
In 2023, blockchain technology will continue to advance as more companies create decentralized services and products.
Currently, most organizations store all of their data in the cloud. However, if they decentralize their data storage and encrypt it using blockchain technology, they will gain more secure access to their information.
In the future, we will be able to make changes to plants, materials, and even ourselves using nanotechnology. This will allow us to create new and improved products.
Although the technology for gene editing has been around for a couple of years, in 2023, it will become more capable of allowing us to alter nature.
A gene-editing process is similar to a word-processing technique in that it allows us to add and remove specific parts of a gene. It can be used to improve the health of crops or correct DNA mutations.
The world is facing one of the biggest challenges in addressing the climate crisis by putting the brakes on its carbon emissions.
In addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, green hydrogen development will continue to progress in 2023. Two of Europe’s biggest energy companies, RWE and Shell, are developing a green pipeline running through the North Sea.
Through decentralized power grids, small power generators placed in residential or community areas, people can provide electricity even if the primary grid is unavailable. This model could democratize the energy system and reduce carbon emissions.
Industrial leaders will continue to progress in developing autonomous systems capable of handling various tasks, such as transporting goods.
In 2023, we’ll see the development of more self-driving ships and trucks, and delivery robots. More factories and warehouses will also start using autonomous technology.
One of the world’s largest online grocery retailers is Britain’s Ocado, which claims to have the largest warehouse of autonomous robots. Its automated systems can move thousands of items daily and handle various tasks, such as picking and transporting goods.
