The electric vehicle will reveal the extent of its benefits
With rising energy prices and power cuts, individuals and businesses must now adopt new habits to limit their consumption. New smart applications allow drivers to determine the energy the electric vehicle needs for everyday commutes. Businesses and households can then use the rest of the battery to power machinery or to meet their home energy needs. This way of using your electric vehicle to save energy is rather little known to the general public. This is even more true for baby boomers and Generation X for whom the car still has a symbolic dimension while the younger generations consider the car as a simple tool to get from point A to point B and if possible, with minimal environmental impact. In 2023, we will see a multiplication of campaigns to inform young and old audiences of the multiple benefits of EVs for individuals but also for companies.
Quantum technology for climate change
In addition to shortening engineering design time from a quarter of a century to just a few years to complete a design cycle, quantum technology could also improve decision-making through complex modeling and prediction while ensuring emissions standards are met. This would contribute in the long term to combating global warming, predicting the intensity of future climate disasters and determining whether to order evacuations or shelter in place. As a result, loss of life from hurricanes and other weather-related natural disasters could be reduced.
The adoption of 6G in the most isolated areas, at what cost?
With the deployment of 6G, rural areas and remote industries such as rail, offshore drilling or large-scale mining would benefit from better connectivity. In addition, the ultra-low latency of the network would further accelerate the implementation of broadband which would not displease the under 25s. These people are digital natives and do not hesitate to participate in virtual groups or share everything online. In the coming years, we should expect to see more discussion about how these younger generations would use their smartphones to send money to each other. But these benefits will come at a cost, as the technology will be much more expensive than its predecessors. Disparities in adoption are therefore to be expected.
The traditional approach to test empowerment is very energy-intensive and has a high environmental cost. To solve these problems, intelligent test optimization, whose goal is to run only those tests known to help identify a problem, would now be preferred. This is because the content of digital products, including all constituent parts and third-party components, must be detailed and certified to ensure their authenticity. As products become more complex and accumulate an increasing amount of data, the control of standards will have to be ensured by a technology that will analyze and test faster and more accurately than humans. It is for this reason that AI more easily meets these requirements for systems and devices. By using AI to test AI, testing these systems would help understand responses and validate them against acceptable behavior.
When AI makes hackers' jobs easier
In 2023, the creativity of pirates will be boundless. Indeed, the progress of deep fake is pushing hackers to use images, generated audio and conversations that seem realistic to entice recipients to share personal data or other sensitive information. In addition, hackers will also be able to break into smart homes. As attacks multiply, IoT manufacturers will need to formulate their response to IoT-based extortion. Not stopping at individuals and businesses, the number of targeted attacks aimed at disabling or destroying the availability of systems with the aim of physically harming people will increase sharply. For example, ransomware attacks against vital equipment in the healthcare sector could cause many deaths.
