I was invited in the Bulgarian National Radio to talk about the technological trends in 2020. So I prepared this list and now I am sharing it with you.

What to expect in the technology world in 2020? Here is my list of the top 20 technologies for 2020 (not in any specific order):

  • 5G data networks will start to expand
  • Autonomous driving will be closer and closer to level 4
  • Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) will improve
  • Smart homes will increase popularity and will face security problems
  • Lots of jobs will be lost to automation
  • Smart cities - more and more cities will integrate the new technologies
  • Of course, we should expect improvments in the existing deep learning systems (computer vision, NLP, voice technologies)
  • Drones also will increase popularity and the need for law restrictions
  • Increasing popularity of wearables with new devices on the market
  • Cybersecurity will be a hot topic also in 2020
  • Evolution in the health care - presonalized and predictive medicine, better predicitons at the genome level
  • Fintech industry will grab huge percentage of all banking industry
  • Evolution of aerospace technologies
  • AI and robotics will become closer to humans, not only with chat bots and virtual assistants but with consumer-ready physical robots
  • Internet of things (IoT)

  • Quantum computing will become more usable and powerful
  • Blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies may experience another rise
  • It is expected that in 2020 biofuels will be cost-competitive with fossil fuels
  • Scientists will continue to work hard in the neurotechnology, expecting to have implantable brain–machine interfaces in the next decade, why not prototypes in 2020?
