December 03 2019, Høvik, Norway – A new report from DNV GL, the global risk management and quality assurance company, has identified the ten technology trends, and their associated risks, that will shape industry and society in the coming decade. The rapid advancement of digitalization is behind many of the trends, profoundly challenging our personal and societal assumptions. The relationship between humans and technology is switching, with humans increasingly augmenting the decisions of artificial intelligence, rather than the other way around. For example, in the next decade there will be a greater proliferation of autonomous vehicles, whilst energy production and transmission will increasingly become the domain of algorithms rather than people.
