Where 3G and 4G technologies have helped us to browse the web, use data-driven services, increased bandwidths for streaming on YouTube and so much more, 5G services are expected to revolutionize our way of life by services that depend on advanced technologies like AR and VR, similarly cloud-based gaming services like Google Stadia, NVidia GeForce Now and others. It is expected to be used in industries, HD cameras for improved safety and traffic management, smart grid control and smart retail, etc.
Internet of Things (IoT):
Another promising new technology trend is IoT. Many “things” are now connected to internet connectivity. This means that they can be connected to the Internet. Hence, the Internet of Things, or IoT. The Internet of Things is the future and has already enabled devices, home appliances, cars, and many other things to be connected for data exchanging over the Internet.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA):
Robotic Process Automation is a technology that is automating jobs. RPA is the use of software to automate business processes such as interpreting applications, dealing with data, processing transactions, and even replying to emails. RPA automates repetitive tasks that people used to do.
Another promising technology is quantum computing, which is a form of computing that takes advantage of quantum phenomena like superposition and quantum entanglement. This great technology trend is also involved in preventing the spread of the coronavirus, and to develop potential vaccines, thanks to its ability to easily query, monitor, analyze and act on data, regardless of the source. Similarly, quantum computing is helping in the banking and finance sector in order to manage credit risk, for high-frequency trading and fraud detection.
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality:
Another great technology trend is – Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), and Extended Reality (ER). VR immerses the user in an environment while AR improves their environment. Although this technology trend has primarily been used for gaming thus far, it has also been used for military training.
Change is the only constant. This also implements to your professional life as well. Up-skilling yourself is a need of an hour. the reason is simple, technology is changing quickly. I have listed the top trending technologies, which are expected to acquire a huge market in 2021.
