The Four Technology Trends That Will Shape 2021
Making predictions for 2021 is something that no one wants, especially knowing how crazy 2020 has been. In terms of innovations, however, 2020 played out as a nice year and still showed us some great new technologies, gadgets and algorithms.
It’s true that AI has already been a trend over the past few years, but it is also a technology that is getting more and more complex. In 2021, our predictions are that it will become even more valuable, especially in industries like healthcare. Machine learning algorithms will become better at what they do and the opportunities they create for us.
From Elon Musk’s Tesla to some of the biggest German car manufacturers, we saw many automotive industry experts talking about vehicle automation. The transition to self-driving cars has not been that smooth, but we already see a lot of features that allow for our vehicles to drive autonomously without any problems. Thanks to the addition of 5G and its rollout, this sphere is definitely getting many new upgrades.
5G And Improved Connectivity
The new 5G standard means more than just faster and more reliable internet. It also means that mobile connectivity got a lot better, and many potential use cases for the Internet have been uncovered. If we think about how 4G brought streaming video to music platforms as bandwidths increased, 5G will certainly help us bridge to a new digital reality.
Remote Medical Examinations And Diagnosis
The days when we walked to the doctor’s office to get a full examination are starting to become history. Thanks to the world of artificial reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), examinations are moving to the digital sphere. With more high-definition cameras stepping in and giving doctors a clear image of the patient, the world of virtual reality will likely move in this direction.
In the end, what many of us should be ready to see moving into 2021 is the effect of COVID-19 on the tech world. According to experts, the pandemic will act as a catalyst for so many changes that we already expected to see this year – but also many underlying technologies we’ve never seen before. Below, we are listing our top five technology trend predictions for next year.
