The Impact of Technology in 2024 and Beyond

If you’re thinking about next year’s business and technology goals, you’re not alone.

IEEE, the professional association for the global engineering and technology community, has published a fascinating look at tech trends coming in 2024. Global tech leaders weighed in with their forecast on where tech will have the biggest impacts.

AI is expected to be the most important technology in 2024, including predictive and generative AI, machine learning (ML), and natural language processing (NLP).

More technology impacts that should be top of mind for 2024:

  • Real-time cybersecurity vulnerability identification and attack prevention. The biggest concerns are data center and cloud vulnerability, security issues related to the mobile and hybrid workforce/employees using their own devices, ransomware attacks, phishing attacks, and insider threats.
  • Extended reality (XR), including metaverse, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR)
  • Leveraging 5G and emerging 6G
  • Increasing supply chain and warehouse automation efficiencies
  • Aiding and accelerating software development
  • Automating customer service
  • Speeding up candidate screening, recruiting, and hiring time
  • Accelerating disease mapping and drug discovery
  • Automating and stabilizing utility power sources
  • Development of communication satellites for mobile connectivity to bring parity to rural and developed regions.
  • Quantum computing’s significantly higher computing power – a trillion times higher than that of today’s most advanced supercomputers
