Top 8 Technology Trends to Watch in 2023: More advanced technologies ‘enabling better devices’

With “Big Tech” firms dominating our world and economy, the reality of technology is constantly changing; and scientists, engineers, and innovators are trying to design newer and better devices using more advanced technologies. 

Some are focusing on developing augmented reality and immersive technologies to create a copy of our real world. With technologies such as the digital immune system, 6G, metaverse and other innovations, these ideas can sooner become a reality.

With this in mind, Distrelec has compiled a list of the top 8 technology trends to watch as we near the halfway point of 2023.

The Top 8 Technology Trends to Watch in 2023

  1. Digital Immune System
  2. 5G and 6G
  3. Metaverse
  4. Adaptive AI
  5. Sustainable Technology
  6. EV Adoption
  7. Cloud Computing
  8. Platform Engineering

Security concerns have been a major focus for many companies throughout 2021 and 2022, especially during the pandemic when people were working from home.

As time has moved on, companies are now focusing on the term “digital immune system” that combines multiple software engineering strategies to protect against risk.

Also included under this umbrella are AI in cybersecurity, and blockchain and homomorphic encryption.

Following is 5G; regarded as one of the most crucial technological fields, 2023 is witnessing a fresh viewpoint on connectivity, given the rise in satellite numbers in recent years.

Therefore, this year has seen more interconnecting thanks to innovations in 5G and cloud computing, alongside tech companies working on 6G which is expected to arrive in 2030.

Referred to as an immersive digital network of 3D interactive worlds, some sources describe the Metaverse more as a combinatorial breakthrough rather than a single technology that combines several technological trends into a common virtual setting where individuals may enhance the world around them with the help of VR and AR devices.

As mentioned earlier when describing AI in cybersecurity, the new implementations can adapt to specific environments – here’s where Adaptive AI comes in.

Especially for tech, engineering, and manufacturing industries, more things and machines become interconnected, so this becomes more and more crucial.

Also included within the top 8 trends are sustainable technology, EV adoption, cloud computing, and platform engineering.
