Today, technology is now evolving at such a rapid pace that the annual predictions tend can seem out of date. As technology evolves, it enables faster change and progress. Moreover, it can cause acceleration to the rate of change and becomes more exponential.
Change is the only constant and it is applied to your professional life as well. Nowadays, you can start up-skilling yourself as technology is evolving very quickly. Here have been listed top 5 trending technologies and are expected to acquire a huge market in 2021.
Take a look at the top 6 Trending Technologies:
1: Artificial Intelligence: The term Artificial Intelligence has received a lot of buzz in the market in recent years. But now it has also continued to be a trend to watch its effects. In addition to the other branches, AI has been developed much rapidly and it includes Machine Learning. Artificial Intelligence has referred to the computer system and performs tasks like recognition of images, decision making, speech patterns, etc. AI can perform all these tasks much faster and more accurately than humans.
2: Machine learning: Machine Learning is a subset of Artificial Intelligence. With the help of machine learning, the computers are programmed to learn to do everything from the insights of data. In general, we have two types of learning and that is Supervised and Unsupervised. Machine learning is a subset of AI within the domain of deep learning. All these subsets offer you an opportunity for specializing in a career field that helps you in growing. Machine Learning is rapidly being deployed in almost all kinds of industries. It creates a huge demand for skilled professionals. It has been estimated that the machine learning market is expected to grow $8.81 billion by 2021. Besides, it helps in completing countless tasks and generates many jobs. It includes engineers, developers, researchers, and data scientists.
3: Robotic Process Automation: Like both Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, the RPA is the technology that helps in automating the jobs. It is used as the software to automate the business process like Interpreting applications, dealing with data, and replying to emails. The main objective of RPA is to automate the repetitive tasks that people used to do. All these are just not the menial tasks it includes the work for financial managers, doctors, and CEOs.
4: Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality: Virtual reality immerses the users in an environment while the Augmented Reality enhances the environment. VR has primarily been used for gaming purposes and it has also been used for training with Virtual-ship. Both VR and AR contain immense potential in training, entertainment, education, marketing, and even rehabilitation. It can be either is used to train doctors for doing surgeries. There is a wide variety of players in the VR market such as Google, Samsung, etc. While getting started in VR requires a lot of specialized knowledge. The basic programming skills and having a forward-thinking mindset can land the job.
5: Cybersecurity: Cybersecurity might not seem like emerging technology, but it has been given around for a while. It constantly threatens new upcoming technologies. The hackers who try to illegally access the data couldn’t give up any time soon. Also, it will continue to find ways to get even the toughest security measures. The new technology has been a part of adapting and enhancing security. The hackers can have cybersecurity as an emerging technology and constantly evolve to defend against hackers. Today a wide range of cybersecurity jobs has going three times faster rather than the tech jobs. Thus as a result it has been predicted that you will have 3.6 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs by 2021.
6: Block-chain: Most people think that what blockchain is. Well, it is the technology about cryptocurrencies like Bitcoins. It offers security that is useful in many other ways. The blockchain can be described as data where you can only add and not take away the changes. With blockchain, you need a trust a trusted third-party who can oversee or validate the transactions.
