On the other hand AR helps to relay essential information to the users about what is happening in front of them. Virtual reality or VR is used in various famous gaming trends such Pokemon Go, Facebook’s Oculus Rift and PubG in recent years. VR is also used to treat phobias and anxiety disorders by the use of biosensors that monitors the heart rates and perspirations of the patient. VR also helps to treat autism by developing social and communicative skills and also helps to diagnose visual or cognitive impairments by the monitoring their eye movement. The surgeons rely on AR to prevent risks and hazards while they are working in hazardous environment. The potential uses for these technologies in healthcare industry further suggests that XR will have a great impact in 2020 due to the transition from trials and pilots into general use.

5. Automation

The most common and trendy forms of automation are robots, drones, autonomous vehicles or ships, and appliances. The automation exploits Artificial Intelligence to deliver advanced behaviors that interact more naturally with their surroundings and with people. Last year it was reported by a third of businesses about the cyber security breaches. The biggest data breaches are a result of compromised codes. Automation serves business organizations to monitor the vulnerabilities and breaches without the help of developers. Therefore it is expected that Automation is on its path to become the new tech trend in 2020.

6. Blockchain

Blockchain is one of the top 10 technology in 2020 as it serves as a digital data storage distributed and decentralized ledger to store data of monetary transactions. Blockchain serves to make calculated investments which helps to make smarter decisions in investing and trading. Various big industry sectors apart from the banking industry can be affected by Blockchain such as supermarkets, healthcare, government and the public, media and entertainment and many more. Transactions are secure, private and efficient which makes Blockchain a go to technology for every organization. Blockchain also serves a secure voting. Voting via blockchain is considered to be absolutely secure and prevent frauds and tamper as each and every vote is stored in the block of the chain. The blockchain is quite accurate thereby reducing the human involvement. This serves the good reason for this technology being absolutely cost-efficient.

7. Big Data

Big data has been a big hype in 2019 last year as it served as a life saver technology for corporate companies. Big Data Technology is a Software-Utility field to analyze as well as extract from data sets that are too complex to be dealt with traditional data processing software. It was predicted by SNS Research that combined revenue from big data related hardware, software, and professional services would fetch vendors over $57 billion by the end of 2017. However, it will leap beyond $76 billion at a CAGR of 10 percent in 2020. According to IDC revenues from big data and business analytics will surpass $210 billion at a CAGR of 11.9% in two years. The big data market will boost a size of $123.2 billion by 2025 as reported by Grand View Research. Big Data is a cost efficient technology that identifies and eliminates invoice-processing errors and automated service schedules. This is why many companies are relied on Big Data.

8. Machine Learning

Machine Learning is a subset of Artificial Intelligence that includes abstruse statistical techniques that enable machines to improve at tasks with experience. Machine learning is a computer science course which includes algorithms, mathematics and statistics. Computers use machine learning to perform task with instructions. The corporate companies will be benefiting from Machine Learning/Deep Learning’s real-time financial applications such as fraud/anomaly detection, self-auditing systems and suggestions based on past orders/transactions in 2020. Machine Learning is widely adopted by companies creating handsome demand of employment for the professionals. It is expected that by 2022, the machine learning market will grow up to 8.81 billion dollars.

9. Cyber Security
