Chinese technology giant Huawei has been hitting news headlines across the globe for both good and bad reasons. The negative press, which, for the most part, continues to be unsubstantiated, has not eclipsed the corporation’s contribution to the mobile space and telecommunication installations. Its is among very few companies that have an edge in the roll-out of 5G technology – but what does the future really hold in terms of megatrends, say before 2025? Here are some of its predictions based on its Global Industry Vision (GIV) report.
Living with bots
Bots have been particularly useful in many fields such as customer care handling, and have since grown thanks to advances in material science, neural networks, and artificial intelligence. The technologies are powering the uptake of robots for home products and services, as well as in enterprise setups. The aforementioned report predicts a 14 percent global penetration rate of home robots – and their availability cannot be understated based on voice assistants and smart home devices that solely rely on the power of bots.
Working with bots
As mentioned, bots are here to stay thanks to their potential in revolutionizing industries further. Smart automation will take on more hazardous, repetitive, and high-precision tasks – a boon for safety and productivity. GIV predicts that there will be 103 robots in the industry for every 10,000 employees.
Rapid 5G rollout
4G LTE is plenty fast, but it can also get very speedy thanks to 5G developments. At the moment, only a few countries in the world have the service, including the U.K., USA, and South Korea. While local carriers have not discussed its availability, we can only guess that they will start its development in no time. Huawei says 5G adoption will increase and at a faster rate than previous wireless generation than any other wireless generation thanks to the technology’s massive potential for people, businesses and the society. The report predicts that 58 percent of the world’s population will have access to 5G by 2025.
Services and products are being equipped with notable aspects of AI that entail the use of sensors and data-driven modules that can foretell our needs, allowing information to find us.
“Future searches will be button-free, personal social networks will be created effortlessly, and the industry will benefit from ‘zero-search maintenance.’ GIV predicts that 90% of smart device owners will use intelligent personal assistants,” predicts Huawei.
“Advancements in digital tech must be balanced by shared data standards and principles for data use,” reads a statement from Huawei.
GIV predicts that the annual volume of global data will the 180 ZB mark (1 ZB = 1 trillion GB),
