Top Tech Trends in 2019 that will Create Jobs for you
Technology is now emerging at such a rapid pace that predictions of trends can look out-of-date before they are published as articles or blog posts. As technology evolves, it enables every sector to grow even faster by accelerating of the rate of change. If we talk about technology-based careers, they too do evolve but not at the same pace. However, IT professionals of the 21st century must realize that his or her role will never stay the same.
1. Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been the buzzword for quite some time now and still continues to trend because its effects on our lives and work are in the early stages and are expected to change the world to a great extent in the coming days. It refers to computer systems that replicate human intelligence and perform tasks without human interventions. Automation is creating jobs as well as eliminating them, especially in the AI field. As per reports, jobs in AI will number 23 million by 2020. The employment will be created in programming, development, testing, support and maintenance etc.
2. Machine Learning
Machine Learning (ML), a branch of AI helps in programming computers to learn to do something they are not programmed to do. ML applications are used for data mining, data analytics and pattern recognition. Nowadays, all types of industries are deploying ML creating an enormous demand for skilled professionals. By 2022, the ML market is expected to grow to $8.81 billion.
3. Robotic Process Automation
Similar to AI and ML, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is another technology that automates tasks. It refers to the use of software to automate business processes like processing transactions, interpreting applications, dealing with data, and replying to emails etc. This technology will be one of the most evolving technologies for the current year. While altering existing jobs, RPA is creating new jobs in the industry.
There is a wrong notion of people that blockchain technology is related to only crypto currencies like Bitcoin, but this technology offers security that is useful in many other ways. We can better describe it as data you can only add to, not take away from or change. Only developers are not in demand in the blockchain space, companies are also looking for software engineers, project managers and consultants.
5. Cyber security
Cyber security has been around for a while and might not sound an emerging technology, but it is evolving. This technology is developing day by day as new threats are constantly coming. It is also in high demand because the new technology is being adapted to enhanced security. As long as hackers are there, cyber security will be an emerging technology because it needs to evolve constantly to crush the hackers. Industry experts have predicted that we will have 3.5 million unfilled cyber security jobs by 2021.
6. Internet of Things
Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the emerging technology trends of the current year and the future. Many things are now interconnected with the help of WiFi. IoT enables devices, home appliances, vehicles and much more to exchange data over the Internet. Today, we are only in the initial stages of it. The number of IoT devices touched 8.4 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach 30 billion by 2020.
Conclusion: There are many technologies evolving all around us, but these discussed technologies are envisaged to rule over many sectors and offer promising career potential in this year as well as the coming ones. So, staying current with technology trends is the key to make a rewarding career. Keeping in view the trends you should upgrade your skills to best fit in with the growing market’s requirements.
