STM TechTrends 2024
On 30th April 2020, STM launched its latest edition of Tech Trends with a central focus on the user.
With digi-natives entering the research labs, academia and the workforce, the time is here for Generation-Z. This generation lives and breathes within the digital environment and requires instant gratification for their information needs.
They expect easy solutions, in a personalised way, in trustworthy environments where research integrity is secured. The combination of AI and data must make things really easy for the user. In academia they require the outputs of scholarly communications to be verified, certified and adapted to their different roles, fitting seamlessly into their individual workflows. Knowledge should be presented in bite-size, on-demand, in all formats and fine-tuned to the area of their interests. The sharing of data, Open Science, transparent peer review and AI ethics are all a given.
