In this dynamic world, change is the only thing that’s constant. When it comes to technology, it becomes even more evident as it has become a compulsion for companies to shift towards modern emerging technologies in the present day.
Despite being a hard time for the global economy due to pandemic, technology is still moving in an upward trajectory. If you want to see your position in the future market, you have to learn these technologies in order to cope with the trends.
Here are the 5 Emerging Technologies everyone should be looking for in 2021:
Blockchain is basically a digital ledger of transactions that is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of the computer system. The Blockchain system makes it difficult or impossible to hack or manipulate the system.
In the current times, blockchain is the backbone behind the concept of cryptocurrencies. It was originally designed to support cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. But in current times, it is also being used in several industries because of its enhanced security and transparency.
Internet of things(IoT) is the network of physical things or objects that are embedded with sensors, software and other technologies. The network of different physical objects is combined together in order to connect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the Internet.
Without any doubts, IoT would grasp the market in the years to come. We have already seen exponential advancements in this sector with the passage of time.
Consumer-focused technologies like Smart Home System and other solution-based technologies are vital to the success of IoT. There are various sectors where IoT could be implemented in order to comfort human lives.
AI and Machine Learning:
AI basically means the intelligence displayed by machines. AI is used to perform the task more easily and efficiently with the help of computational capability in order to minimize human efforts.
While Machine learning is a subset of AI. It gives the system the ability to learn and optimize process without the need of being continuously programmed.
AI has been dominating and will continue to dominate the IT sector for the coming years. Each and every possible sector are directly/indirectly using AI in the current times. It has and will continue to make human lives more practical and efficient, to say the least.
Virtual and Augmented Reality:
Virtual reality(VR) is a computer-generated simulation of a 3D image that could be similar or different from the real world. While Augmented Reality(AR) is an enhanced version of the real physical world.
VR requires you to wear a proprietary headset while AR content might be projected on your smartphone or on the vehicle’s windshield showing various information like current speed, navigation etc.
It is estimated that this market would reach total worth of $209.2 billion by 2022.
Quantum computing is the process of performing computation through incorporating quantum phenomena such as quantum entanglement and superposition. They are capable of performing tasks that normal computers are incapable of doing.
This technology is still in it’s primitive stage but it is estimated that by 2029, it’s revenue would reach $2.5 billion.
So, these were some of the emerging technologies to look out for in 2021. There are many other technologies that well could have made the list like; smart vehicles, 5G technology, 3D printing etc. The technology is ever-changing and we will continue to see much more advanced stuff making their break-through in coming times.
