THE TECHNOLOGICAL PROJECTS THAT WILL MARK 2023

2023 is coming up with a wealth of innovative projects that promise to be exciting in all fields.

The world of technology continues to advance by leaps and bounds. The most anticipated and ambitious projects of the technological revolution are in full swing and promise to transform the way we live, work and interact.   

In our post, we'll introduce you to the most prominent projects of 2023, from innovations in artificial intelligence and robotics, to new advances in renewable energy and transportation. We'll bring you up to date with the latest news and show you how these projects could impact our daily lives.  

Read on to find out what the future holds! 

The year of projects - 2023  

Green energies  

Interest in renewable energies continues to grow, and technological advances are increasingly enabling the development of transformative projects that help increase the production of green energy. Among the most popular projects is the development of the world's largest wind farm, capable of generating more than 7 GW of clean, renewable energy for 8.5 million homes. 

Offshore facilities are an increasingly popular development project due to their ability to generate clean, green, renewable energy through wind (a natural resource). In addition, offshore wind farms are also an efficient way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to meeting decarbonization targets.  

Iberdrola, a Spanish power company, takes the accolade for the most sensational project this 2023 by announcing a €22.5 billion investment in the development of 7,000 megawatts (7GW) of offshore wind power in Scotland. The project is expected to provide clean energy to more than 8 million UK homes and will begin development in 2030.   

The company won the right to build these projects in an auction conducted by Crown Estate Scotland, the largest in the country's history. With this investment, Iberdrola adds 37,000 megawatts between capacity already in operation, in the pipeline and projects under development, making it one of the world leaders in the offshore wind energy sector.  

The current energy crisis, largely caused by high gas prices, has been a key factor in accelerating the development of wind technologies worldwide. Iberdrola's investment in these offshore wind projects in Scotland will contribute to the transition to a greener and more sustainable economy. 

Artificial intelligence - AI  

Artificial intelligence (AI) will continue to be the area of greatest interest in 2023, with major projects already under development.   

In healthcare, AI is expected to be used to improve accuracy in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, as well as in the management of chronic patients. In addition, AI technologies are being developed to improve patient care in hospitals and clinics.  

In the automotive field, AI is expected to continue to play an important part in the development of autonomous vehicles and the optimization of vehicle energy efficiency.  

In the industrial field, AI is being used to improve manufacturing efficiency and production optimization, as well as in the automation of repetitive tasks.  

In the field of cybersecurity, AI is being used to detect and prevent cyber attacks by automating threat detection and incident response.  

In addition, artificial intelligence is expected to remain a key technology in innovation in different areas such as ethics, security, information, data...   

  • Machine learning: Machine learning based on neural networks has been one of the most active areas of research in AI in recent years. Systems based on deep machine learning have achieved impressive performance in tasks such as speech recognition, natural language processing and computer vision.  

  • Ethical AI and safety: With the increased adoption of AI systems, there is a growing concern to ensure that these systems operate in an ethical and safe manner. This includes developing AI systems that are transparent and explainable, as well as avoiding issues such as discrimination and privacy.  

  • Distributed AI: Distributed AI refers to the use of multiple connected devices or systems to process large amounts of data in a decentralized manner. This allows AI systems to process large amounts of data faster and with greater accuracy.  

  • AI in robotics: AI is increasingly being used in robotics to enable robots to perform more complex tasks and learn from experience. 

Drone deliveries - transportation  

One of the most ambitious projects related to transportation, and which will finally come to life in 2023, is that of autonomous flying vehicles or delivery drones.  

Amazon Prime Air is a project developed by the multinational Amazon that seeks to implement in its logistics a package delivery system using drones. The goal is to be able to deliver packages to customers within 30 minutes or less from the time the order is placed. In this way, package delivery is carried out quickly and efficiently, reducing waiting time and improving the customer/user experience.   

In December 2013, the American giant announced its intention to start using drones to deliver packages soon. Since then, it has conducted several tests and obtained various regulatory approvals to operate its delivery drones in several countries.  

The system would consist of six-propeller hexagonal drones, which would be able to fly autonomously and deliver packages weighing up to 2.3 kg.  Amazon is currently working on several types of delivery drones, including an eight-propeller hexagonal drone with a range of 24 km and a delivery speed of 112 km/h (70 mph). The drone is capable of detecting and avoiding obstacles and has an automatic landing system.    

However, there are still several technical and regulatory challenges to be overcome before this project becomes a reality. These challenges include safety, integration into existing airspace, and regulation and compliance with UAV safety standards. Despite these challenges, the autonomous flying vehicle project is expected to have a major impact on the way deliveries and transportation in general are conducted in the near future. 

Workability of the field  

The need to carry out efficient and effective projects in a variety of industries is undoubtedly one of the main reasons. Global economic growth is facilitating the incorporation of project managers into the job market, who are becoming necessary elements of project planning and execution processes.   

In general, the skills needed to be a successful project manager this 2023 include leadership and communication skills, and analytical and problem-solving skills.

The increase in demand for project managers is closely linked to the advancement and adoption of new technologies. Projects related to software development, applications, mobile technology, cybersecurity and other technology fields require experienced and skilled leaders to guide their planning, execution and oversight. The profile of a project manager is essential to ensure success in these projects.  

In conclusion, 2023 promises to be a year full of exciting projects in different fields, from renewable energy, transportation and artificial intelligence. These projects not only have the potential to significantly improve our quality of life, but also open new opportunities for economic development and scientific advancement.  

In the next post, we will talk about digital twins; a virtual representation system of a physical process that analyzes the behavior of a system before it is built or implemented in the real world, allowing better management of risks and potential problems by improving the efficiency and effectiveness of projects.
