I had written an earlier blog in 2012 about how future will look like in 2015. (https://giridevanur.com/innovation/tech-predictions-for-2015)
I got some accurately right and some wrong!
Now am sticking out my top 10 predictions for 2020.
- Self driving cars will still not be a reality.
- Amazon Drones will not deliver your gifts for sure.
- Desktop computers will still be around. Microsoft surface will be a winner.
- Apple would have succeeded in phone8. They would have sold more than 1 billion iphones.
- Google will still be the king of search. So will the facebook as social media giant with 2Billion users.
- Chinese handset makes Xiaomi will have replaced Samsung as the largest smartphone manufacturer.
- There will be no real internet of things. One would still goto a store to pick tooth brush etc.
- VR goggles of various companies will be a big hit. 100s of millions will be sold by 2020.
- Cellphones with 100GB download speeds would have arrived.
- Cloud technologies would have displaced traditional technology players.
Its going to be interesting 5 years, with another 3-4Billion people coming on to internet.
Lets wait and watch!!
Wish you a very happy new year!!
