Security Trends to Watch in 2023 and Beyond

In the future, surveillance will be a thing of the past. We will have automated physical security systems, drones, and facial recognition technology that will make it possible to track our every move. But while the technology seems like it’s here already, there’s still much work ahead before we see anything like this becoming commonplace in our lives–especially considering that most people don’t know what they’re missing out on right now! Here are some predictions about how surveillance might evolve over the next 5 years:

What is the Changing Landscape of Surveillance?

Surveillance is a broad term that refers to the collection, analysis, and use of information about people. It can be used for a range of purposes, including crime-fighting and national security. Surveillance technologies are also growing in popularity as they become cheaper and easier to use.

In 2016 alone there were over 13 billion hours of video content recorded by various surveillance technologies around the world—and that’s just one year! The rate at which surveillance technology is becoming mainstream has been accelerating for years now: from 2012 through 2017 alone you can see how much faster it grew than in previous years (see graph below).


How AI Will Change the Surveillance?

AI is already changing the field of surveillance in significant ways, and it is expected to continue doing so in the future. Here are some of the ways AI is likely to change surveillance:

  1. Improved Accuracy
  2. Automation
  3. Facial Recognition
  4. Predictive Analytics
  5. Real-Time Monitoring

1.    Improved Accuracy

AI-powered surveillance systems can process vast amounts of data and identify patterns and anomalies that would be difficult or impossible for humans to detect. This can help law enforcement and security professionals to detect potential threats more quickly and accurately.

2.    Automation

AI can automate many surveillance tasks that previously required human intervention, such as monitoring camera feeds or flagging suspicious activities. This can free up human resources and improve efficiency.

3.    Facial Recognition

AI can be used to identify individuals from surveillance footage using facial recognition technology. While this has the potential to improve security, it also raises concerns about privacy and civil liberties.

4.    Predictive Analytics

AI can be used to analyze surveillance data to make predictions about future events. For example, it could analyze patterns of behavior to identify potential threats before they occur.

5.    Real-Time Monitoring

AI-powered surveillance systems can monitor large areas in real-time, identifying potential threats as they occur and providing early warning to law enforcement.

While these advancements in AI-powered surveillance technology have the potential to improve security and public safety, they also raise concerns about privacy, civil liberties, and the potential for abuse. It is important to strike a balance between security and individual rights and to use these technologies responsibly and ethically.

How Drones Will Change Our Lives?

A drone is a flying vehicle that can be controlled remotely. Drones are used in many different industries, including agriculture, entertainment, and military purposes.

In 2023 and beyond it’s expected that drones will become even more popular as they become easier to use and cheaper. For example, you may not need a pilot’s license any more because after 2023 you’ll be able to control your drone using an app on your phone instead of having someone else do it for you.

There are many ways that drones can be used in the future of surveillance. Drone surveillance can be used to monitor traffic, wildlife, crops, and the environment. It’s also possible for drones to monitor military operations and other government agencies. You may want to use drone surveillance if you work for an organization that needs help monitoring its assets or property.

How Will Facial Recognition Technology Evolve Over the Next 5 Years?

Facial recognition technology is already being used in many countries, including the UK and France. In the field of security, it’s used to help identify criminals or unauthorized people (e.g., protesters). Facial recognition can also be used for education purposes by tracking students’ movements throughout their school day so that teachers can give them individualized instructions based on where they are at any given time.

Facial recognition has also been applied to healthcare as an alternative way for doctors and nurses to diagnose patients during medical checkups by scanning their faces using cameras that detect differences between people’s features such as skin tone or hair color etcetera.

How Will Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) Change the Way We Interact With Machines?

AR and VR will be used to help people with disabilities interact with machines. For example, AR can be used to show a person how to use an ATM machine or how to do their taxes using an online portal. In addition, it can be used in healthcare settings so that patients can learn about new treatments before they undergo surgery or receive treatment from doctors.

VR will also change the way we interact with each other by creating new ways of communicating through video conferencing technology that allows us all access through our laptops or phones when we don’t want anyone else around (e.g., parents who are away at work). This means that instead of having just one person speak at a time while everyone else listens silently on speakerphone like in the olden days when phones were first invented; now we have multiple participants talking simultaneously while everyone else watches them live-streamed right into their computer screens – just like watching TV shows today!

A Lot of Ground Has Been Made in the Field of Surveillance

Surveillance is a broad term that encompasses the use of technology to monitor and track people. It can include any type of data collection, including video footage and audio recordings.

In the future, we’ll see more surveillance devices deployed as part of daily life: smart meters for utilities; cameras for traffic control; facial recognition software on smartphones (and maybe even your computer); biometric sensors embedded in our clothing…the list goes on!

AI is changing all this by making it possible to automate many tasks associated with surveillance—like detecting suspicious activity using machine learning algorithms. As AI takes over more fields across society including health care and education so too does it become more important for law enforcement agencies like police departments who must have access to all data available from multiple sources without having additional human assistance when reviewing that information during investigations or other matters involving criminal activity.


As surveillance technologies continue to evolve and become more advanced, the ability of law enforcement agencies and governments to monitor their citizens will likely increase. But just because we can’t avoid seeing cameras everywhere doesn’t mean we should ignore them.

The fact is that these devices can be used for good or bad purposes, depending on how they are deployed—and there are plenty of ways in which they can be used for both. It’s up to us as individuals whether or not we want our lives watched by those who wish us harm or simply want only our best interests at heart
