Over the years, technology has been very beneficial to the way things are being done today. From watching TV from a small gadget in hand while walking to the grocery store to finding directions via the use of a technical guide called GPS, there is so much that has already changed in the last couple of decades. A lot of these changes are meant to make our lives much easier at home and work too.
On the flipside, as we move into the next upcoming years, the prediction for technology does not seem as positive as before. Instead, it seems to be some grave concerns coming down the pike, and they are expected to get in the way by disrupting business in the future. In fact, instead of solving business problems, it is going to make more. With that being said, here are 3 technology trends that may not be welcomed gracefully into the business world.
With all of the different technologies that enhance how business activities are being performed today, one would think that artificial intelligence is only a member of the crowd of technologies that people depend on today. However, according to various reputable technical news resource, artificial intelligence software may be more disruptive than beneficial to an organization. For instance, one of the major hurdles for any company that incorporates this software into their business operations is the impact that it can have on societal norms. Unfortunately, because AI is much more than a simple tool that can be used to accomplish various activities, the impact can be negative instead of positive. Simply put, since AI is a like a child that must be trained to act responsibly, Citizen AI has to be programmed that way too. So, if it is in the wrong hands, it can do more damage than good.
Data Veracity: The Importance of Trust
Data is the backbone of many organizations today. In fact, data is used in making all kinds of different decisions. Therefore, the source of data that the information comes from must reliable, accurate and easy to obtain. Unfortunately, none of this description is even remotely related to what is coming down the pike with data veracity. Specifically, since data veracity is giving businesses the capability to manipulate the data that they gather and report. From the ability to generate bias data to reporting false numbers to companies outside of the business, this data is no longer accurate no reliable. Henceforth, it can make the task of gathering good data next to impossible to do without intervention.
Extended Reality: Ending Distance
Somethings can only be done and experienced close up. In fact, you have to be there in order to understand what another consumer is experiencing at that moment in time. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case with extended reality. For instance, if you want to know what it feels like to drive a BMW, it’s no longer necessary to drive to the lot to experience how this vehicle drives. Instead, you have a new option that involves a virtual experience that makes you feel like you are actually there.
