Technology is always changing all around us. The pace at which it changes is incredibly fast and only getting faster. This is why many are excited to look ahead to the future and try to guess where it will go next. There are some saying that the next ten years are going to bring a lot of exciting changes to the technology realm. Network World has detailed some of these potential futures.
The Technology Industry Will Become More Diverse
One thing that some are very excited about is that it is expected that the technology industry itself will become more diverse. Right now it is primarily dominated by white men, but that is finally starting to change.
Silicon Valley has had to come to grips with the issue that there are not enough women and minorities in their ranks. It means that they are missing out on particular perspectives and they are not able to serve as broad of a market as they possibly could.
One tech company (Intel) even recently put out its diversity numbers and vowed to make them more accurately reflect the American public by 2020. That is a promising sign for us all.
Cloud Computing Will Be Everywhere
You could still confuse some people with the term “the cloud” in recent years, but that is starting to change. Cloud computing is already taking up an increasing amount of our technology life, but it is going to become exactly what we do with most things in the technology realm ten years from now if not sooner.
Cloud computing will make our lives easier because it will help to automate a lot of the processing that we have to do manually today. This is highly important because even a few seconds saved can make a big difference in the lives of the average person. This is an exciting element of the future that seems almost guaranteed to happen in technology.
