Top Themes: TMT Industry
Artificial Intelligence (AI): AI, or software-based systems that use data inputs to make decisions on their own, is pervasive in our everyday lives. It is integrated into every technology involving large amounts of real-time data.
As AI is increasingly involved in life-changing decisions, the inability to see and explain the decision-making processes of AI systems is eroding public confidence in this technology. Deploying explainable AI (XAI) will go some way to helping restore that confidence. Companies will invest more in XAI practices, like automated machine learning (AutoML) and synthetic data training, to automate time-consuming iterative tasks and circumvent the data problem using artificially created data.
Also, more governments will enact AI regulations seeking higher technical and ethical standards, using machine learning techniques supporting data privacy and access rights like federated learning.

The Metaverse: Cooling interest, economic obstacles, and the immaturity of enabling technologies will lead to a metaverse winter in 2023.
Chinese investments in metaverse-related technology will highlight the value of the metaverse compared to existing one-off experiences such as social media, gaming, or ecommerce. Subsequently, live events and enterprise collaboration will also gain traction as the theme develops and the underlying technologies mature.
In 2023, digital twins will be the first foray into the metaverse for many businesses, especially industrials. The focus will be on collaboration, enterprise design, data visualization, product simulation, and process optimization.

Cybersecurity: The rising rates of cybercrime and growing media coverage both put immense pressure on cybersecurity teams. The ongoing cyber skills crisis makes it even more challenging to attract and retain cybersecurity professionals to help keep businesses secure. In 2023, cyber teams’ mental and physical well-being will be threatened by their workload.
The rise in cyberattacks has catalyzed the growing adoption of AI-based security technologies for defensive purposes. AI can swiftly analyze millions of datasets and identify various cyber threats. However, AI will also increasingly become a malicious tool to create advanced cyber threats with hackers launching increasingly sophisticated attacks.
