What will the next year be like? Predicting the future is not easy, and 2020 has made sure of this. But our world does not stand still, technologies are constantly developing and changing our world. Read in my article what the brightest innovations await us on the threshold of 2021.
This technology is firmly entrenched in the financial community. Blockchain can transform almost any industry – finance, retail, shipping, and even agriculture. It is a decentralized database that cannot be tampered with or altered. Blockchain can be used for financial transactions, user identification, creation of cybersecurity technologies, etc.
The blockchain builds trust through shared access to a record containing valid information. Data that everyone can trust will enable new technologies to be implemented to dramatically improve efficiency.
In 2020, the power of artificial intelligence is already being used by e-commerce, social media and deepfake creators.
Very soon, AI will be able to recognize human emotions, so the program will be able to better understand chat requests, offer appropriate ads and improve the quality of customer service.
3.Cloud platforms / DaaS / PaaS
Data as a service (data as a service) and platform as a service (platform as a service) are currently only available to large companies, but in the future, even small businesses will be able to optimize processes.
This technology improves the speed of data transfer and the quality of the Internet connection. In the future, this will allow unmanned vehicles and aircraft to be connected to the Internet, as well as expand the capabilities of the Internet of Things.
There are five levels of autonomous driving from “no automation” to “full automation”. Tesla cars are now at levels 3 and 4. Perhaps we will be able to reach level 5 by 2025.
In theory, quantum computers are much faster and more efficient than conventional computers, but they can have an information loss. The technology could lead to medicine breakthroughs and will be beneficial for pharmaceutical companies.
By 2022, it is planned to create an experimental prototype of a quantum computer with cloud access.
In the future, there will be popularity of genetic analyzes in patients. Such tests can predict the risks of getting a variety of diseases, such as heart disease or breast cancer. It could also lead to the growth of personalized medicine.
8.Microchips and biochips
Now microchips are mainly planned to be used for medical purposes. In the long term, they can save us from the need to carry a wallet with us. Elon Musk believes that the chips will send music directly to the brain and allow us to compete with artificial intelligence.
This category includes a variety of technologies, from artificial photosynthesis to carbon capture. Sustainable startups attract the interest of the venture capital market and big business. Green technologies allow solving the following tasks: promoting sustainable development, preventing the depletion of resources, producing goods that can later be recycled, recovered or reused, reducing environmental pollution by increasing resource efficiency of production.
