Future Tech – We work less time, yet we do more things. We own fewer goods yet we share more. We hate system as yet, we are creating a new sharing economy, maximising availability and usage of temporary spaces for living, working, storage, and parking.

Here is just a personal view of what’s coming.

1. The A.I. Revolution

By 2020, the A.I. is self-learning, self-sustainable., ex. Coseer, top 10 major languages, at 99% accuracy. 2025, the A.I. is a part of you, implanted, augmenting your brain.

By 2030, the machine programs its own emotional algorithms. Of , if you like, the sky is the limit as the A.I. can think out of box.

2. New Superpowers

Technology: India, Singapore, South Korea. China to lose 400 million people by 2100, from an estimated peak of 1.4 billion at the end of this decade. Asia, to become the “home” of generation Alpha.

3. The New Consumer

future tech top 15, generation Z and generation Alpha are changing the world.
Technology accelerates and changes everything we know and generations Z and Alpha are not the same as X and Y.

This new type of consumer, Z & Alpha is not only tech-savvy but also more complex to deal with. Expect massive cultural differences as Alpha’s leading force originates from Asia, where Baby Boomers, X, and Millennials originate mostly from “western culture.”

4. Delhi Or New York?

In the future of tech, Delhi is not yet New York. Gasoline remains more valuable than connectivity, however, its value decreases as the urbanisation and the technological advances take over.

5. Need vs Demand

future tech top 15, need comes before demand
“There is more certainty in reselling the past than inventing the future” is no longer relevant. Your business must put the accent on what the consumer needs rather than the existing demand. Innovation comes first in future tech.

6. Faking The Fakes

If it can be faked, it is going to be faked. China remains the lowest trust consumer society in the world for the next five years. Craftsmanship and heritage are not what it seems.

7. Power Shift

The power of connectivity increases in future tech. Ex: cutting off the Internet would affect Iran’s regime ability to control the masses more than it would hinder its opposition.

8. Future Tech – True Industrial Revolution

Cars, buildings, devices, clothes and even human replacement organs are going to be made of graphene. It is the powerhouse of the future tech. With Graphene, everything “tastes” better.

9. The Internet

these days we use internet for everything
Shopping, news, job interviews, bills, social media, are already a big part of the internet world. The Internet is no longer just a big part of our daily life, the Internet is our daily life.

10. The Internet o Things

Seeing the tip of the iceberg as we have just scratched the surface, with 99% of the physical world, yet to be connected.

11. Tech In Fashion – Fashiontech

the future of fashion is fashiontech and fashion tech. future tech
A beautiful paradox: We tend to define tech-infused garments and accessories as FashionTech, thinking that it develops into a new industry running in parallel to fashion. In fact, the more technology the Fashion Industry is going to adopt and use, the more mainstream is going to become.

Fashion always comes first and if your masterpiece is not fashionable it won’t sell. The mantra is AUGMENT, not REINVENT.

12. Generation Alpha

online fashion

Generation Alpha; post-2013-2015, this generation is not going to use technology, but become THE technology.

13. Future Tech – Future Jobs

future tech, the jobs of the future
Although current jobs will be destroyed, better jobs will be created as economies adapt.

14. Time

We have more time at our disposal as we work less, we work smarter, we work “digital.”

15. Singularity

Billions of people, units of information, meta-patterns, interconnections. We are our own creation; we have become data.

    Super. So I agree with everything apart from China leading the world of fakes for another 5 years. I think Nigeria takes over, India then some Middle Eastern countries.

    Loving the simplicity yet the deepness of the message. Superb job. Would love your share on how artificial intelligence changes the world, some sort of 10 industries if you can.
    Once again, exceptional work.
