Huawei has launched its Global Industry Vision (GIV) report recently, continuing its predictions for technology and industry development up to 2025.
Drawing from Huawei’s own quantitative data and real-world use cases of how intelligent technology is permeating every industry, this year’s report identifies 10 megatrends currently shaping how we live and work. GIV also predicts technology trends up until 2025, including 5G coverage, AI deployment, home robot adoption, and smart assistant use rates.
The 10 trends and examples of GIV’s key predictions for 2025 are Living with Bots, Super Sight, Zero Search, Tailored Streets, Working with Bots, Augmented Creativity, Frictionless Communication, Symbiotic Economy, 5G’s rapid rollout and Global Digital Governance.
Advances in material science, perceptual AI, and network technologies are powering the uptake of robotics in a variety of home and personal scenarios. Thus, GIV predicts a 14% global penetration rate of home robots.
The convergence of 5G, VR/AR, machine learning, and other emerging technologies will let us see beyond distance, distortion, surface, and history, opening up new opportunities for people, business, and culture. Also, Future searches will be button-free, personal social networks will be created effortlessly, and industry will benefit from “zero-search maintenance”. Next comes the tailored streets, where intelligent transport systems will connect people, vehicles, and infrastructure, creating zero congestion, rapid emergency response, and other functions that will make life smoother.
In future it will be more working with the robots as of now. GIV predicts that there will be 103 robots in industry for every 10,000 employees. For Augmented Creativity GIV predicts that 97% of large companies will have deployed AI by 2025. AI and big data analytics will create seamless communication between companies and customers and break down language barriers, which will ensure a frictionless communication.
The companies across the planet are adopting digital tech and smart applications on unified access platforms – that means greater collaboration, resource-sharing, stronger global ecosystems, and higher productivity. Next comes the rapid rollout of 5G. GIV predicts that 58% of the world’s population will have access to 5G. Lastly, GIV predicts that the annual volume of global data will reach 180 ZB (1 ZB = 1 trillion GB) and for that Global Digital Governance should be necessary as, advancements in digital tech must be balanced by shared data standards and principles for data use.
According to the CMO of Huawei ICT Infrastructure Kevin Zhang, “Human exploration will never stop. We should set our sights beyond what we see now and look to the future, shifting from innovation to invention. We’re seeing rapid changes to life, work, and society as every industry adopts AI, 5G, cloud computing, and other emerging technologies. Huawei is committed to building digital platforms, user experiences, and intelligent technology that power ubiquitous connectivity in every scenario. It’s our mission to offer every person, home, and organization an intelligent future and the benefits of entirely new opportunities for growth.”
With the first report released in 2018, GIV @2025 is designed to analyze industry development trends and serve as a strategic guide for ICT deployment. For more information about GIV@2025, please visit www.huawei.com/minisite/giv/en
