The Internet of Things has been on everyone’s mind lately, but the reality is that we are only at the tip of the iceberg in terms of what will become possible when all the connected devices out there start working together seamlessly. In 2022, IoT technology will be at the peak of its powers, and the changes it will bring to our lives will be unimaginable compared to today’s standards. This article examines just some of those possibilities and offers our own vision of what life might look like in 2022 in a world where everything and everyone is connected to each other.
5 Reasons Why Our Lives Will Be Different in 2022
Thanks to consumer technology’s continued growth and development, here are five reasons why our lives will be different in 2022:
Music of All Kinds Accessible Everywhere:
With music-streaming companies like Spotify, Pandora, and Amazon Prime streaming available on every platform imaginable (and plenty more besides), it’s a safe bet that if you want to listen to your favorite song or genre of music, you’ll be able to do so wherever you want – whether that’s your home computer, your car radio/streaming audio system, or maybe even through a new device we haven’t heard about yet.
Our Bodies Will Be Smarter Than We Are:
We’re not just talking wearable fitness trackers, either; these days smart clothing is already here and starting to catch on with consumers. As people start becoming more comfortable with things like smart fabrics and intelligent clothing, we can expect everything from basic items like clothes, gloves, socks, shoes—to high-tech accessories such as watches—to become smarter than ever before.
It Will Be Easier To Find Anything You Need Or Want:
Whether you need groceries delivered right to your door or wish there was an app for [insert anything here], chances are good that someone out there has already thought of it – and made it happen!
Virtual Reality Has Finally Come Into Its Own:
While virtual reality headsets have been around for years now, they have never really taken off because they were too bulky and expensive. However, since then they have gotten smaller and cheaper – which means that by 2022 we should see VR headsets available at most major electronics stores.
We Won’t Have To Worry About Getting Lost Anymore:
One of the biggest issues with smartphones is that they don’t always work where you need them to work – especially when traveling outside your home country or region. Fortunately, thanks to advances in both smartphone software and location tracking technology. It won’t matter where you are anymore because your phone will know exactly where you are at all times…which means no more getting lost!
More Data Input Options
As we get further into 2020, people will become more accustomed to machine-to-machine communication. Devices that offer biometric and behavioral data as inputs to AI systems will only become more prevalent. For example, smartwatches could track your heart rate and blood pressure at all times, feeding information into a device like Amazon Echo, which then would be able to send you notifications based on any spikes in these measurements—for example, it could let you know when your blood pressure is high so you can take your medicine. And then there’s always self-driving cars.
Devices Will Function As ‘Living’ Things
Humans in future will live with a huge amount of connected devices. The Internet of Things (IoT) will be common in most homes and offices, meaning we’ll interact with an increasing number of smart technologies that can sense our emotions, learn about our daily routines, make suggestions on what to do or buy next – like a living thing in their own right. Scientists are already researching ways to make smart devices more aware of people’s emotions by analyzing voice commands and facial expressions. Machine learning algorithms are also use to study human movement patterns to anticipate behavior. Certain tasks like adjusting a thermostat or adding groceries to a shopping list. These all are done without having to consult an app or say anything out loud.
Self-Learning Systems And Artificial Intelligence (AI)
From self-learning systems to artificial intelligence, there are countless emerging technologies in the IoT space that may make smart devices significantly more capable than they already are. Researchers have been working on developing ways for machines to learn how best to execute a task. Through exposure to feedback and data, rather than program step-by-step. This has huge implications for what we might expect from our automated technology in five years—and beyond. Many experts predict AI will take center stage in 2022 and continue growing rapidly into 2027. When many anticipate AI could finally surpass human capabilities. Though it’s unclear whether these predictions will hold true, researchers continue their work with new advances being made daily.
Increased Connectivity Means Increased Security, And Continued Growth Of Cloud Computing
According to Gartner, more than half of IoT devices will connect to cloud services by 2017. This means that in just a few years, everything from your Fitbit to your car will have a connection. To put it simply, your internet-connect refrigerator is as likely to hack as your company’s payroll program. As we continue moving towards an age of increased connectivity, there are security concerns. These concerns need to be addressed—and new technologies on which companies can build solutions. These technologies will continue developing over time; but by 2018 or 2019, advanced security solutions should begin filtering down into consumer markets and making them safer.
Health Monitoring And Diagnostics Will Become Wireless
Imagine being able to sit down with your doctor once a year. Walk him through a few simple health monitoring tests. Then, collect a bunch of data and use it to recommend healthy changes to your lifestyle. With wireless health monitoring, you can have all of that. In addition to helping create better healthcare solutions, wireless health monitoring will help people take responsibility for their own well-being. This shift from reactive treatment of disease to proactive care. This is an important part of our approach to curing disease worldwide. Wireless healthcare is another great reason why we’re heading towards an even more connected world.
This brief introduction is just a taste of what Internet of Things will bring us. There are so many possibilities and opportunities that we can’t wait to see what other entrepreneurs will do with it. One thing is certain, we’re living in exciting times. If you have any questions or comments about IoT technology, feel free to leave them below. We would love to hear from you!
