6 Technologies That Will Change the Way We Work in the 2020s
5. Mobile Translation
Translations have gotten more automated throughout the 2010s. We have Google Translate, DARPA, automatic translations for social media posts, etc. These are likely to become more prolific and more automated in the 2020s. We will likely see these perfected automatic translations extend to text messaging.
Think of the impact this will have on international business relations. This would reduce the need for human translators. Human translation involves delayed communication. This technology would speed up communication and make international meetings far more efficient.
6. 3D Printing
Businesses use 3D printing to create test products instead of using real materials. This saves a lot of money. Major upgrades are expected for 3D printing in the 2020s. Printing speed should increase by 50 to 100 times what it is now. This will boost efficiency and save businesses an unimaginable amount of time.
Better yet, 3D printers will go “smart.” Combining with AI technology, products will be printed using voice commands. There are plans to make these customizable by industry, so every business will likely benefit from 3D printing innovations in the 2020s.
There’s no way to know for sure what 2029 will look like in the workplace. The above speculations only come from prototypes and predictions. What we can be certain of is that the workplace will greatly benefit from any new technologies that appear in the 2020s.
