Top 10 Tech Trends for 2021
You may not know this but I have an alter ego of a techie nerd. Don’t know lots of stuff about it but I love it all. Here is one of my blog posts found on This Great City this week.
Happy New Year! Let’s start the year off with high expectations for the marvels of technology and the titillating discoveries to come. With the help of a few reputable tech contributors, I have collected the top ten trends for 2021. I’m only including the top 5 this time because your mind will be spinning with giddiness, so enjoy!
- Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Over the last 4 years approx. 37% of business has AI framework It is believed that AI will create 58 billion occupational opportunities to people. Researchers believe if
AI will touch every field from healthcare, finance, agriculture to education. Think of AI in human resources marketing and space exploration. Google uses it for travel to let you know “what is near you”.
- Machine Learning (ML)
Machine Learning (ML) is a part of the AI realm, think of it as the finishing end of AI. ML detects credit card fraud, predicts future traffic patterns from historical data as well as predicting future weather.
Ernst and Young report a “talent crisis” on the horizon. Some predict that a ML expert may earn upwards of $112, 000 yearly. Of course, that will require schooling with the right education. Post-secondary institutions must start diverting IT’s to ML now.
- 5G Technology
Which is just starting to come to a network near you, maybe. While we go through the growing pains remember the gains. It is predicted to have 99% availability, 100% coverage and only a milli second of latency. Hope it come true!
Blockchain is one of the most secure digital records. The reason is that it becomes almost impossible to alter enough transaction blocks to corrupt the whole chain. Typically, we are familiar with this term in crypto currency world. Yet global companies such as FedEx and IBM found a need for this secure blockchain.
- Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
Augmented reality and virtual reality are different in many ways, yet they come from the same family. I guess you could call them cousins! Augmented reality applies a virtual layer of items into you real world. Where virtual reality takes you away from your location and doesn’t allow you to interact.
