Artificial intelligence, robots and bicycles: a study showed which technologies will change life in 2020

Analysts also predict the heyday of audio books and podcasts.

Autonomous artificial intelligence in a smartphone, affordable satellite Internet, the heyday of audio books and podcasts, as well as a bicycle technological revolution will become a reality in 2020.

About this writes the European truth with reference to the study "Forecast of the development of high technology, media and telecommunications industries" of the world consulting company Deloitte.

 The study is designed to help businesses make strategic management decisions.

Autonomous artificial intelligence. It is noted that in 2020 the concept of “neural processor” (edge ​​AI) is forever included in the masses. This is a generation of chips that are designed to process information using AI directly on the device, without a cloud connection.

In each smartphone, tablet, TV, smart watch, fitness tracker, wireless headphones, the AI ​​will work without an Internet connection. That is, we are talking about an autonomous AI that will “live” in each user’s gadget.

Deloitte predicts that more than 750 million processors with AI or parts of chips that will perform or accelerate the machine learning task on the device, rather than in a remote data center, will be sold in 2020.

In monetary terms, this will amount to 2.6 billion dollars. For comparison, in 2017, experts predicted sales of 300 million chips. By 2024, sales will exceed 1.5 billion AI chips.

 Work. In 2020, out of the nearly 1 million robots that will be sold to enterprises, a slightly larger part of them will be professional maintenance jobs, generating more than $ 16 billion in revenue for owners, which is 30% more than in 2019.

Deloitte believes that in the future, differences between industrial and service work will gradually disappear. And the business will need to learn to evaluate in which cases the use of robots is cost-effective. The price, power and flexibility of robots in the future will be driven by the promotion of 5G and AI chips.

Affordable satellite internet. Deloitte also predicts that in 2020, the efforts of companies to provide the world with Internet access will finally bear the first fruits. In 2020, over 700 satellites will appear in low-orbit, providing global access to broadband internet. Although such a number of satellites will not be enough to connect all consumers and enterprises in the world, they can offer partial service at the end of 2020 or at the beginning of 2021, presumably starting from higher latitudes.

The heyday of audio books and podcasts. It is noted that the global market for audio books will increase by 25% to $ 3.5 billion. And audio books are not the only audio format that is gaining popularity.

The company predicts that the global podcasting market (audio or video broadcast on the Internet in the style of radio and television broadcasts. Podcasts, as a rule, have a certain theme and frequency of broadcasting, EP) will grow by 30% and reach 1.1 billion in 2020, for the first time exceeding the mark of 1 billion dollars.

Bicycle electric revolution. Analysts concluded that every year by 2022 the number of bike rides in the world will increase by 10 billion. The number of regular users of bicycles will double in many cities around the world.

The growth in the number of bike rides is based on many technological innovations: predictive analytics, mobile applications, wireless, digital urban planning tools, 3D printing, electrification.

These innovations make the bike safer, faster, more convenient and provide accurate information about speed and routes. In turn, this makes the bike more attractive in terms of first and last mile transport.

The increased use of city bicycles, Deloitte analysts write, can lead to significant social changes: reduced traffic, reduced environmental pollution, reduced load on the public transport system and improved public health.

Deloitte predicts that in 2023, 40 million electric bikes for $ 20 billion will be sold worldwide. In comparison, it is expected that only 20 million electric vehicles will be sold in 2025. And at the end of 2018, 5.1 million electric vehicles were in circulation around the world. Earlier, UNIAN reported that in China, artificial intelligence technologies are used to diagnose coronavirus.
