5 Technologies Set to Change the Global Economy by 2025
It’s not easy to keep up with the rise of so many technologies on so many fronts. Each technological advancement is heralded as “the next big thing.” That said, not every emerging technology will change our business or consumer landscape – but some genuinely have the potential to disrupt the status quo, change the way people live and work, and shift our value pools.
The effects of technological and other advancements are shortening the shelf life of products, services, and even employee skills around the globe. The talent to manage the changes underway and develop much needed solutions to modern challenges will be scarce. Companies and organizations who want to stay ahead must act now. Brands and manufacturers all over the world are putting engaging technological skilled talent, and future-proofing their products and services portfolio, at the forefront of their growth.
Emerging Technologies with High Potential
As mobile computing devices dominate Internet connectivity, interfaces, formats, sensors, and apps will evolve at lightning speed. By 2025, a projected 4.3 billion more people will enter the mobile internet market as they gain access to mobile connectivity. That presents a huge opportunity for product and service design! ViNotion helps product designers and developers to launch products that take the ever-evolving needs of these new users into account by designing products that seamlessly integrate with their apps and devices—so that you can deliver intelligent digital experiences that work for everyone.
- Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Machine learning and user interfaces for detection, recognition, analysis, and prediction of the behavior of individuals, groups, and traffic will continue to advance. It will increase our quality of life, safety, comfort, and efficiency. It might even relieve us from some brainwork in the future. As a leading expert in artificially intelligent video analytics, ViNotion builds its Deep Learning and Computer Vision-based technology and algorithms into exciting new and updated products and services that make our daily lives, work, and play better.
- Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)
According to predictions by Goldman Sachs, the virtual and augmented reality industries will grow into an $80 billion market by 2025. Major upgrades to the technology infrastructure are underway, and an ecosystem of apps is set to emerge for both consumers and businesses. ViSense® provides highly reliable data for simulations, such as through digital twins. One use case is in the forecasting of urbanization’s consequences and traffic growth in different scenarios. These kinds of developments at the edge of VR and AR are driving the need for very accurate, flexible, and multifaceted data about things like traffic and crowds.
- Cloud technology
Cloud technology might be the biggest buzzword of the past decade, and it will continue to be of great impact in the 2020’s too. All IT services and web apps could be delivered through the cloud, with more companies and organizations adopting the public cloud. As cyber security remains critical today, ViNotion’s Intelligent Video Analytics solutions do not rely on cloud connectivity or third-party devices. As totally wireless communication bandwidth is technologically limited, we believe that processing at the edge to preserve this scarce resource is essential. ViNotion’s edge processing solutions not only save computing power but also storage and cloud data communication costs. More importantly, they eliminate the challenges of data processing governance and allow product developers to comply with companies’ and brands’ security protocols. ViSense® technology is GDPR compliant, and ViNotion is ISO27001 certified. Data streams produced by ViSense® Edge systems are rather small, contain zero personal data, and are securely routed to central servers or cloud applications. ViNotion helps product makers build smart data capture with visual sensors that give cloud applications situational awareness while protecting the privacy of data subjects like people and vehicles.
- The Internet of Things (IoT)
9 billion devices are currently connected to the internet. This number is set to increase by 50 billion, to almost 1 trillion by the end of this decade. Therefore, companies will need to develop appropriate solutions for monitoring and securing their products, systems, devices, and even people. Intelligent AI processing at the edge can be applied to physical devices (e.g., cars or road systems) with sensors or actuators connected over the Internet. By creating cyber-physical systems (CPS), with the benefit of using central intelligence to interact with the physical world, these systems are both more secure and more efficient. The devices can collaborate to form complex systems, while the cost of building and operating the equipment is reduced.
As the way we work and live changes, so too should the products and services that are available to us. ViNotion is set to leverage the latest technological advancements to bring artificially intelligent video interpretation into innovative products and services that modern businesses and consumers need and want.

- What if roadside cameras featuring Video AI technology would warn in-car systems that approach an intersection for pedestrians that are walking around the corner or for location-specific information such as obstacles on the road? It would allow such systems to warn the driver or even control the driver assist functions of a car. The navigation system could recommend alternate routes when there is something going on, such as a school running out, a broken-down car on the road, or anything else that could affect the travel experience. Enriching navigation systems with more than just floating car data would significantly increase accuracy in positioning and estimated time of arrival (ETA).
- Contemplate equipping your fleet of trucks with a few cameras that record the truck’s surroundings and combine all video feeds into a single image for total situational awareness. The capabilities of artificial intelligence could warn the truck driver about bicycles and pedestrians in blind spots. An alert signal could be sent when thieves attempt to steal cargo while the truck is parked.
- Consider lighting fixtures that function as sensor-hotels, leveraging video analytics technology. They could provide real-time street, block, and city-wide mobility data for insights into Smart Cities. Data on safety, traffic priority and distribution, crowd flow, environmental quality, and passerby info could be displayed on billboards and more.
These are just four examples of how innovative products and services with artificially intelligent video interpretation features could improve the way we live and work. Each of these three examples creates opportunities for new income streams and opens brands to new markets.
