Tech trends in 2023 will blow our minds, with a few catches. Ready to be amazed by the latest and greatest tech that will take the world by storm in 2023? It’s the kind of stuff that makes us humans both delighted and outright scared out of our minds.
From cars that fly to virtual reality products that transport you to distant worlds, these products are sure to fascinate even the most jaded tech enthusiasts. So sit back, relax and let us take you on a journey through the future of technology.
Flying cars in 2023
It’s the transport we have all dreamed of our whole lives — flying cars. They will be here in a real sense in 2023. A tech company called Alef Aeronautics, has their electric flying ready for pre-order. All you have to do is pay US$300,000.
The Alef “Model A” car offers street driving and vertical take-off. It can drive for 200 miles/320km, or fly for 110 miles/170km.
Another company called Aeromobil will also have a flying car ready for purchase in 2023. Enjoy your flight! Maybe also pack a parachute.
AI solving traffic jams in 2023
Traffic jams. How we hate them. When we get caught in them, we start to think of crazy things like moving off the grid, living with dirty feet, eating homegrown kohlrabi and never speaking to another human being again.
While just about every country in the world is building more roads, the solution in 2023 will be to use AI to manage traffic to stop jams before they start.
AI can potentially be used to solve traffic problems in several ways. One way is to optimise traffic flow by using sensors and algorithms to monitor traffic patterns and adjusting traffic signals in real-time to reduce congestion. Another way is using AI to improve public transportation; for example by implementing systems that can predict demand and adjust routes and schedules accordingly.
AI can also be used to develop intelligent vehicles that can communicate with each other and with traffic infrastructure. This technology, known as V2X (vehicle-to-everything) communication, could help to reduce accidents and improve traffic flow.
So don’t move onto a muddy mountain just yet, everything will be okay.
Crypto will go mainstream
This is the breakthrough crypto enthusiasts have all been waiting for. Mainstream institutions are adopting blockchain projects and cryptocurrencies. And the signs are there that they will continue to do so in 2023. Take for example, BlackRock.
It is the world’s largest asset manager and has US$10 trillion of assets under their control. Undoubtedly, it is diving into crypto and not looking back, especially after signing a deal with Coinbase earlier this year – an astonishing move that places traditional finance in bed with everything blockchain.
JPMorgan is also at it. JPMorgan Chase is the world’s largest bank by market capitalisation, and in terms of assets, the fifth largest bank in the world.
In 2022, the bank officially registered a trademark for crypto wallets. They also plan to offer crypto payment processing.
Traditional banks just can’t stop, and won’t stop, on the crypto front.
One of the most exciting parts of mass crypto adoption is the benefits it could bring to impoverished people around the world who don’t have access to traditional banks.
Cryptocurrencies could also potentially increase financial inclusion, as they can be used by anyone with access to the internet, regardless of their location or banking status. All they need is a smart phone and they can use a crypto wallet.
They can pay other people, get loans in crypto and receive crypto from abroad without having money transfer services taking a large portion of it on the way through. If you don’t understand crypto at the moment, read up on The Chainsaw, because crypto is not going anywhere in 2023 … except mainstream.
AI doctor may cure you
A medical AI beat 15 of the best doctors in China when it came to correctly diagnosing sick patients. It is called ‘Bio Mind’ and it diagnosed 83% of cases in three minutes, compared to human doctors who only diagnosed 63% in 20 minutes.
To do this, it was trained on thousands of images of diseased nervous systems. It is now better than doctors with years of experience.
At the moment, it is being used as a tool to help doctors. In 2023, we could see a situation whereby the AI becomes so advanced that the doctor isn’t needed. Hypochondriacs are in trouble.
AI farming in 2023
Our food will soon be sewn, grown, fertilised, weeded, and harvested by bots. And if you think that is very much in the future, you will be surprised to learn that this is already happening across the world.
Bots are already mapping entire fields and remembering where every plant is, so when weeds arrive, the bots just shoot them with their laser eyes.
Google has already been knee-deep in the AI farming game for years. They have a company called the Moonshot Factory.
Google realised that if farmers are going to map every plant in a field, then they will have a big data problem. And who are the best people at data? Google, of course.
So they have created their own AI-run farms so they can work out how farmers will need to use this tech.
Of course, bot-run farms are already producing higher yields than normal farms, so this could potentially help tackle projected food shortages of the future.
Blockchain tech trends
Blockchain technology has the potential to improve life for humans in several ways. One of the key benefits of blockchain is that it provides a secure and transparent way to store and transfer data and value. This can be especially useful for applications such as tracking the authenticity of goods, such as food and pharmaceuticals, so fakes don’t get into the supply chain.
Take for example, wine. Genuine fine Italian, French, or Spanish wines are often stolen when they hit the shores of China. They are replaced by fakes made onshore.
Lab tests have shown that the counterfeit wines don’t have a single grape on board! The real bottles of authentic wine get sold on the black market.
Sometimes, the genuine wines do make it to restaurant tables, but after being consumed, the wine bottles can be stolen by the host. They are then refilled with a substitute and sold over and over again.
Australian wine expert Jeremy Oliver said that the average bottle of champagne at a restaurant in China has been refilled around 7 times.
Using blockchain tech, the bottles can be guaranteed to be authentic all the way to the delivery point.
For example, a sensor could be put inside a delivery crate, and can be triggered when light enters, showing tampering. This part of the transport route would be recorded onto the blockchain. All logistics companies have access to the blockchain at all stages of the journey, meaning they will know where the interference happened. This is just one example of how blockchain tech will improve our lives in 2023.
Blockchain tech is currently being used in other areas such as banking, real estate, legal documents, you name it – almost every area of life.
Robots have arrived
Robots are here. And while we want them to be our little helpers, unfortunately there are instances where they qualify as a dystopian nightmare.
But staying positive on the robot front, in 2023 we expect to see robots able to perform a wide range of tasks that are currently performed by humans, such as driving cars, cooking food, and providing companionship. Sex robots are already a thing, and this will get even more common as the tech advances.
As Elon Musk and SpaceX push towards Mars, we will see our bot slaves exploring other planets. We will also see them performing complex surgeries.
Robots will also appear more in the age-care industry, performing tasks and keeping older people company. We like these robots. The other weird scary dog ones, not so much. 2023 can go the hell away if those are the robots on offer.
Many art festivals have now merged digital/virtual and real-life experiences. The popularity of Art Basel and other art festivals like it are proof that this can only grow as an option for art lovers.
In 2023, we will see virtual reality (VR) technology used to create immersive art experiences. This will allow individuals to fully immerse themselves in a virtual environment and interact with artworks in a realistic and engaging way.
AI will also be used to analyse an individual’s art preferences and interests, and to generate custom art experiences that are tailored to their tastes.
Additionally, the use of augmented reality (AR) technology will be used as more galleries put their art online, and people can see the art in metaverse galleries in a fully realistic way.
Exciting times ahead for art lovers!
AR has the potential to improve many aspects of our lives by providing us with useful information and digital overlays on top of the real world.
Imagine going to Spain and understanding everything local people said, using AR glasses that provide subtitles.
Imagine going to a furniture store online, and then using your VR goggles to see how their furniture would look in your house, or using your glasses to get directions as you walk, displaying directions in front of your eyes. This in fact is already here.
In 2023, expect to go deep into Mongolia and be able to get the gist of the conversation.
The future of paying for things is about to get wild. Despite the challenges including crypto winter, crypto markets losing their pants, and polycules running exchanges without a single clue, cryptos are seeing widening adoption.
Currently, 90 million stores worldwide now accept crypto as payment.
If Elon Musk manages to hang on to Twitter and pay back his massive loans on the social media website, then crypto payments inside Twitter will be a thing. Yes, we will be using social media apps to pay each other and for stuff.
Twitter does not currently have a built-in feature for making payments, but there are third-party apps and services that allow you to use Twitter for sending and receiving money. For example, you can use a service like Square or PayPal to link your Twitter account to your account with that service, and then you can use Twitter to send and receive payments.
2023-style payments will be the next step up, much like the way WeChat works in China.
And there you have it folks, the top ten tech trends that will fascinate humans in 2023. We hope you enjoyed this glimpse into the future.
Until then, keep on laughing, dreaming, and embracing the never-ending possibilities of technology.
