Everyone from hip hop artists to fitness buffs is using the Internet to record a workout. Starting in 2020, devices in the background can help ensure that the audience continues to enjoy the workout even when there is no live speaker communication.
One of the Internet’s hottest emerging trends is taking years to develop in the next 10 years. One of the fastest-growing digital products over the past decade is virtual reality.
About a third of Fortune 1000 companies have confirmed the use of VR technologies or made plans to test them in their facilities.

But even among industries — like internet infrastructure — fundamental building blocks and foundations that have been creating the Internet since the 1980s are still ubiquitous.

And in the next 10 years, equipment that can handle and centralize data and content will continue to appear in the new technologies to allow data to be collected, analyzed and visualized. At least that’s the direction that 5G networks, which provide faster speed, are likely to take in 2020.

And many of the world’s largest corporations are already moving to be virtual machines. Moreover, a new era of AI, or artificial intelligence, computing is set to emerge in 2020. There are major implications for companies that lack expertise in computer architecture, design and related disciplines, including mobile apps development, artificial intelligence, machine learning and analytics, virtual reality, augmented reality and cybersecurity.
