Over the coming year, we can expect to see many exciting software developments, including the acceleration of Blockchain technology to protect healthcare data, real-world quantum computing use cases, and NFTs. more practical.
Health blockchains in 2022
Protecting and limiting patient health data is rightly the number one concern and the biggest obstacle to bringing AI-powered health products to market. In 2022, blockchains will begin to play an important role in ensuring data privacy in healthcare, for the creation of machine learning models and AI inferences.
While powerful quantum gate computers are still far from commercially available, in 2022 quantum annealing will solve many real-world optimization use cases. Although they provide rough solutions, quantum annealers are superior at solving some NP-difficult optimization problems that take the exponential time of conventional computers.
Building the metaverse
With Facebook renaming itself as Meta and starting to build the Metaverse, in 2022 and beyond, we’ll see big investments and innovation in virtual world-based online games, social media, and reality-based products. virtual like virtual conference platforms. Expect new apps that allow encounters with virtual world characters replacing the corresponding human entities. The concept of renting / buying virtual real estate will also take off.
Last year we saw a boom in NFTs (non-fungible tokens) in the form of digital art, songs and collectibles flooding the market. In 2022, we will see NFTs expand into more practical applications such as decentralized finance and digital twins that represent a digitized, connected version of real physical entities.
Serverless clouds spur innovation
Serverless architectures promise a true pay-per-use service where the infrastructure evolves invisibly when an application demands it and the user does not have to be involved in setups and technical details. In 2022 and beyond, serverless will enable new user experiences and impact the broader trend across the cloud and the entire tech landscape by creating experiences that make innovation more accessible.
After the initial success, AutoML solutions from organizations such as Google and AWS will make it easier to test different approaches, reducing time to market and improving prediction accuracy.
Poly Clouds prevail over Multi-Cloud
We will see companies adopt more Poly Cloud to take advantage of the best offerings from cloud service providers for specific parts of the workload instead of Multi-Cloud, where the same workloads run on multiple cloud platforms. . Poly Cloud makes it easy to connect and collaborate with partners who are not running on the same IT stack and helps prevent vendor lock-in.
Distributed technologies will merge
Cloud computing technologies have emerged as a paradigm shift in software development methodologies, but they still follow a centralized approach. Over the past few years, decentralized technologies such as Edge Computing, Tiny ML, Blockchain, and 5G technologies have emerged and are now becoming mature. The amalgamation of these distributed technologies will uncover exciting real-world use cases in the near future.
