The digital world is in a constant state of evolution and keeping with the pace is absolutely critical. It is important to ensure a firm grip over all the trends that are shaping the industry so that our competitors do not dump us in the commercial dust.
Let’s have a look at top 6 definitive IT & technology buzzwords that will shape the industry in 2022. These essential buzzwords will also give a deeper insight into where to invest your efforts so that we do not fall behind the curve.
1. Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Artificial intelligence is going to dominate all the technology talks in 2022. It refers to the intelligent machines or software that have a human-like ability to make decisions and improve over a period of time by learning from experience. Currently, popular approaches include statistical methods, computational intelligence, and traditional symbolic AI.
There are a large number of tools used in AI, including versions of search and mathematical optimization, logic, methods based on probability and economics, and many others. An important part of artificial intelligence comprises machine learning, and more specifically deep learning – that trend promises more powerful and fast machine learning. This year we will experience more AI in combination with big data in healthcare.
2. Everything as a service (XaaS)
XaaS is a branch of cloud computing. At its core, XaaS is an extension of SaaS.
It is a rather intangible concept with immense potential. It will be used extensively this year to deliver various computer-centric services and applications to users digitally via the World Wide Web. Everything as a service involves providing services and apps on-demand, empowering consumers to drive down the costs of buying services directly from a provider.
The XaaS market is set to make waves in 2022, and beyond, with a projected market growth of 25.5% by 2026.
Hyperautomation is definitely going to be the most disruptive of 2022 buzzwords. It is an innovation that results in the creation of a ‘digital twin’: a self-sufficient bot that can conduct a range of sophisticated human tasks. It is expected to explode in 2022. The invention of digital twins will help businesses to improve existing processes.
4. Extended Reality (XR)
Extended reality (XR) is one of the most impactful and highly anticipated computer science buzzwords that will create waves in 2022. Its practical potential is enormous, as it utilizes the best elements of AR and VR, using headsets and specialist tools or equipment to simulate face-to-face interaction for indefinite periods of time. It also allows people to conduct experiments, provide services, and perform testing in a safe, secure environment from anywhere on the planet.
5. Voice-as-User Interface (VUI)
As voice-as-user interface or VUI adoption increases, this is a tech buzzword that will dominate 2022. The rise of voice technology has increased the consumption of VUI. Consumer voice technology has exploded, with Amazon Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant being the most disruptive applications in recent years.
VUIs are equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities, which means that these interfaces learn and improve from continual human interaction.
