AI and machine learning are the buzzwords in 2020. With 2021 around the corner, it’s just the right time to introspect the critical trends and hot technology areas of artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies.

I have compiled some of the new frontiers where the presence of AI and ML will be felt in 2021.


The combination of advanced technologies like AI, IoT, RPA will be widely used by enterprises and finance firms all over the world. And this is termed as Hyperautomation by Gartner and Digital Process Automation by Forrester. This will be the new norm in 2021.

“AI doesn’t have to be evil to destroy humanity — if AI has a goal and humanity just happens to come in the way, it will destroy humanity as a matter of course without even thinking about it, no hard feelings.”

Elon Musk, Technology Entrepreneur, and Investor.

Cybersecurity Applications

Security screening, crime prevention, fraudulent activity detections are some of the top areas of cyber challenges for companies. AI-based cybersecurity applications will be the new model for overcoming the aforementioned challenges.

AI/ML and IoT

The combination of AI/ML with IoT will be widely used by enterprises to make faster and accurate decisions. Already companies have started to realize the potential of this tech combo and are experiencing better results.

Workplace AI

This could be a game-changer in 2021 as the global pandemic has necessitated the significance of investing in cutting-edge technology like AI, IoT to ensure a seamless and efficient workplace. In the next 3 years, AI and IoT will eliminate many low-level jobs across the world.

To my knowledge these are some of the areas AI would dominate and digital transformation services must focus in 2021.
