It is a digital world more than ever
Needless to reiterate how the pandemic changed the entire world, while it did indeed disrupt the flow of some industries, advancement in technologies were needed now more than ever, where those advancements were the solution to counteract the effects of social distancing, from online meetings to Virtual Reality and Cryptocurrency.
In 2021, digital transformation will continue to be a major goal for many sectors, contactless and handless mechanisms in consumer-employee interaction will therefore gain more adoption.
The world of technology is in constant change, and it is safe to say that this will permanently affect our lifestyle and dependence on technology, smart phones are becoming smart homes and soon to be smart cities.
Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning:
There is no doubt that there have been some noticeable recession marks on some businesses, that is when the opportunity of embracing AI and ML offers a passage of regrowth.
Collaboration between human and machine has been an optimal way of ideal performance and it will continue to be so in 2021.
Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality:
2020 was a year full of surprises, and 2021 is likely to top that, technology advancements took place constantly and yet they are much more in demand, from ordering a meal to online meeting or any number of other tools, we relied heavily on technology to continue what the pandemic has paused.
VR and AR, offered a potential alternative solution, from ordering a meal or checking out furniture to their uses in education, medicine and so, it is unlikely that the world will take a step back on that regard, VR and AR are to replace major aspects of reality and become involved more and more in 2021.
In 2020 dependence on internet services took an undeniable shift, and it is going to be even more so in 2021. As people unprecedently flocked to use apps for video chatting or digital remittance, they were forced to improve quickly, we will probably see more of these apps extend more deeply to include other sectors like virtual fitness classes for instance. The focus in 2021 will be mainly on the capabilities we gain through software and their services.
Implementations of 5G:
Although the arrival of 5G took more than we anticipated, 2021 might be the mark for 5G evolution, which in its turn will speed up the evolution and incorporation of technologies such as the Internet of Things (IOT), autonomous vehicles, VR and AR. We will see a substantial increase in 5G trial initiatives by enterprises over the next few months.
Online& mobile banking:
From retail and mobile banking to neobank startups, technology has a major role to play in pretty much every aspect in the banking industry, not only in improving customer experience but also to reduce costs.
