If we think we have seen technology advancements recently, it is about to get even crazier. The increase of innovation has been astounding with machine learning, artificial intelligence, robotics, self-driving cars, and more leading the charge. It seems like because of the current climate a lot of technological advancements that were maybe years away had to be done in a matter of months as so many aspects of our world went virtual. With that being said, we are going to talk about some technologies that are predicted to be at the forefront of innovation.
Bitcoin has exploded with its low-cost, trustless, and no-middle-man process. Investors ranging from big hedge funds to Elon Musk have been viciously investing in the cryptocurrency. Currently, the cryptocurrency market is capping at about $1T and is now viewed as a true asset. Get ready for this one because it’s going to be big!
1000+ kph Trains and Urban Mobility Revolution
Could trains become more popular than commercial aircraft? Korea achieved the Hyper-Tube, a 1000 kph train, back in December. Other countries have been trying to become a part of the high-speed train industry, but have yet to fully achieve it. Further high-speed rail tests will continue through 2021 as popularity and demand increases.
We have heard all about the successes and failures of self-driving cars. Elon Musk has been at the forefront of this innovation with Tesla potentially having fully autonomous capabilities by the end of the year. Towards the end of last year, impressive technology had Tesla users excited to see what’s on the horizon. Other companies are also in the race to get their self-driving cars on the road. Be on the lookout for what’s coming next!
No-Code AI Applications
Needless to say, artificial intelligence has exploded in our society with companies understanding that it’s something we can’t ignore. The future of AI will be moving from AI-powered code to no-code AI. Companies will be able to export data, train sophisticated machine learning algorithms and create applications quicker than ever before.
Drone Operating in Urban Areas
The FAA changed the guidelines in 2020 for drones to be able to operate in urban areas at night and over crowds. Users are also mandated to use remote ID broadcast tech for small unmanned aerial systems. With improved cybersecurity and commercial developments, it may not be so out of the norm to see a drone fly over your house this year.
The future of 5G when deployed at full capacity promises to change human-to-human communication. Advancements include smooth, high-resolution video, lifelike video conferencing, and virtual reality capabilities for gaming. The widespread use of 5G ties in with autonomous cars and drones with its potential to enable reliable, low-latency control. US carriers have only given 5G capabilities to about one percent of their network, but that is expected to increase quickly!
This is just scraping the surface of what is to come for technology innovation. The possibilities are endless and it’s going to be a race to the top!
