The Technologies of the Future and How They Affect the Workplace

The advancement of technology is changing the world at an accelerated pace. From smartphones to robots, we are constantly connected and able to stay connected at all times. Communication is no longer just face-to-face or written in handwriting, but instant and immediate via a multitude of channels including voice assistants, text, and video calls.

The advancements in technology have improved the quality of our lives from generation to generation. But it’s not without its risks, especially when it concerns jobs. Many fear that new technologies could replace human jobs, and this may occur to a certain extent. We know from the past however that the creation of new jobs can be able to offset the loss of some jobs.

We are already seeing this in the workplace, thanks to advances in artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and robotics. We are also witnessing the impact of drones and 5G networks, blockchains, and quantum computing.

These technologies will revolutionise business processes, bringing greater levels of connectivity, automation, and security. Blockchains, for instance, are reshaping supply chains by making them more secure, and offering unalterable transaction histories. 5G will allow companies to process data closer to the source (ultra-low latency) and achieve data sovereignty, and increase privacy of data through lowering the cost of transmission.

Virtual reality and augmented reality are changing the ways we interact with digital devices and information. They offer immersive experiences that feel and look like real life. We’re also seeing significant progress in areas such as gene editing, which will decrease the incidence of genetic disorders ranging from hereditary diseases, such as cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy and may even extend our lifespans.
