Technological Trends Set to "Change Our Lives" in 2024 | Al-Hurra

Introduction

During 2023, artificial intelligence dominated the technology industry, witnessing intense competition in its development by major players in Silicon Valley. As we step into 2024, significant changes are anticipated, focusing on generative AI, advancements in electric vehicles, and enhanced regulations for social media networks.

The AI Challenge in 2024

The internet's biggest challenge in 2024 will be distinguishing between content generated by artificial intelligence and real content. Leading companies like "OpenAI," "Adobe," and "Microsoft" promise to provide users with tools to verify the authenticity of images and videos. Expect the development of more digital tools to detect artificially created content.

Electric Vehicles: A Shift in Gear


While the electric vehicle market might not experience a revolutionary surge in 2024, it is expected to witness a slowdown in growth. This slowdown could be a crucial turning point, prompting owners to evaluate the cost and charging advantages of their electric vehicles. In the United States, competition against Tesla will drive the expansion of electric vehicle charging stations, supported by a national infrastructure program.

Clean Technology Leap

Anticipate a leap in clean technology in 2024, supporting low-carbon renewable energy sources. The growth of wind, sea, solar, and even geothermal energy generation sectors is expected. Emerging companies aim to develop smaller and safer nuclear reactors.

AI-Powered Devices

Computer manufacturers aim to bring AI capabilities to devices even when offline. The concept of "on-device AI" will enhance the performance of various devices, such as computers, smartphones, and tablets, without the need for internet connectivity. Devices will gain the ability to understand written texts, summarize information, and create diverse content independently.

Extended Lifespan of Electronics

Foresee the emergence of electronic devices designed to operate for more extended periods. Manufacturers are moving towards providing software support for devices for at least 8 to 10 years. By extending the lifespan of devices, companies aim to reduce approximately 7 million tons of electronic waste generated annually.

Apple's 3D Glasses and Other Changes

Technology enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating the release of Apple's "Vision Pro" glasses in early 2024, priced at $3500. These glasses will enable users to navigate digital interfaces through hand movements or finger taps. Apple is relying on software developers to create applications compatible with these glasses, justifying their premium price.

Apple's Ongoing Adaptations

Following the EU regulations forcing Apple to change its charging port in 2023, additional European regulations will compel the American company to make further adjustments. New regulations will push Apple to stop restricting the side-loading of applications outside the Apple store.

Strengthened Passwords

In 2023, some tech companies introduced solutions to enhance password protection. Microsoft is set to introduce a similar feature for businesses in 2024. Passwords on certain devices will receive additional protection through biometric features such as facial or fingerprint recognition.

Self-Driving Cars on the Horizon

Companies working on electric vehicles face significant challenges concerning the effectiveness of self-driving features. Despite skepticism, some companies plan to release cars with fully autonomous driving systems in 2024 and 2025, limited to roads compatible with this feature.

Enhanced Social Media Regulations

Social media networks are facing massive lawsuits, and hefty fines are expected in 2024. Regulatory authorities are imposing new restrictions on these platforms. Meta, the owner of Facebook, is currently facing lawsuits from more than 40 public prosecutors in the United States, aiming to compel changes that safeguard teenagers.
