It is not only technology trends and top technologies that are evolving, a lot more has changed this year due to the outbreak of COVID-19 making IT professionals realize that their role will not stay the same in the contactless world of tomorrow. 

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, has already received a lot of buzz in the past decade, but it continues to be one of the new technology trends to watch because of its notable effects on how we live, work and play.

But it is only in the early stages. AI is already known for its superiority in image and speech recognition, navigation apps, smartphone personal assistants, ride-sharing apps and so much more.

Other than that AI will be used further to analyze interactions to determine underlying connections and insights, to help predict demand for services like hospitals enabling authorities to make better decisions about resource utilization, and to detect the changing patterns of customer behaviour by analyzing data in near real-time, driving revenues and enhancing personalized experiences.

The AI market is estimated to grow to an almost $200 billion industry by 2025 with global spending on cognitive and AI systems reaching over $50 billion in 2021 alone.  With AI spreading its wings across sectors, new jobs will be created in development, programming, testing, support and maintenance, to name a few. 

Machine Learning, the subset of AI, is also being deployed in all kinds of industries, creating a huge demand for skilled professionals. The focus of the field is learning, that is, acquiring skills or knowledge from experience. Most commonly, this means synthesizing useful concepts from historical data.

With all of these advancements who knows where the future will take us?
