Technology is advancing and driving development shaping the dynamics of our society and tech is also helping to shape our future. No doubt that technological advancement has improved the well-being and growth of our society, especially in this challenging period in COVID 19.
Technology is a great benefit to our world. Little or no human effort is required in some cases because technology has taken the center stage which made life easier. Since the world is barely coming out of lockdown — and social distancing is still mandatory to tackle the pandemic — technology has been helpful in a lot of ways.
With this knowledge, the lists of technologies mentioned here are not exhaustive. You have a better understanding and the benefits of these technologies on the CODIV 19 pandemic and what will be occurring during the rebuilding and after the pandemic.
These 9 technologies will survive and stand the test of time during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
- VIRTUAL REALITY
- ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
- (FIFTH GENERATION)
- SELF-DRIVING VEHICLES
- COMPUTER VISION
- AUGMENTED REALITY
- EXTENDED REALITY
- Of course — you can think of others, as well.
The VR tech is a technology that is fast growing and it used on different devices like Phones, Television, etc. it is also used for different purposes like Gaming, Entertainment, and Training.
Virtual Reality is a technological environment generated by a computer, which interacts with human beings. The person can perform several tons of action in that generated environment (artificial world). Virtual reality (VR) gives you the feels of a real-world, you are in control and can manipulate it the way you want. You are not aware of your real environment, however, exist in another world.
Virtual reality saves time and money, with little or no risk in a safe and controlled area. It is beneficial in training mode or simulation, for Pilots, medical field, firefighters, etc. It is an advanced learning tool.
So virtual reality has really helped in making life easy and made difficult work stressless.
BlockChain has been in existence for over 10 years i.e between late 2008 and early 2009, the public database contains digital information. It is the storage of specific and vital information in a secured database, that can be accessible only by the owner, with a unique user name and password to assess the information. Blockchain is so secured that unauthorized persons cannot just tamper with your information because it is protected by encrypted codes (studiodotcodedotorg).
Once you own an account or operate a Blockchain, your information is then added to other blocks of information in a secured server, which means that your Name Signature, Amount, Date, and Time are stored in a Blockchain, and you will be given a unique identifying code called HASH FUNCTION.
Harsh function secures information or data from Hackers and Cyber Threats by compressing the data or creating a fingerprint. this makes it difficult for cyber thieves to steal your information. it proves your ownership of the account or information, except you compromise.
Try this out, its benefits are numerous and if you want to know more and have a better understanding read more on BlockChain. You will find out it is worth it.
Artificial intelligence is the ability of a machine to display or perform what humans can do. This means that AI can actually display a human’s natural intelligence. It is a machine or computer that mimics the functions and activities of Human beings. We can see these examples on the phone, cars, drones, etc. Artificial intelligence has a lot of benefits which I will mention just a few of them.
One of the benefits is that AI assists in giving the right dosage of medicine and it has been proven to be very accurate in Healthcare. It has also helped in discovering the right treatment for cancer.
Artificial Intelligence has also been beneficial in the Finance world. It has helped in the prevention of Fraud, investment in stock, Property management, and proper Bookkeeping maintenance. It completes transactions. Artificial intelligence is a technology that is fast growing. Don’t fail to explore the goodies of this wonderful technology.
5G (Fifth Generation)
5G network is a technology that is fast-growing. The next-generation wireless network technology. It is able to handle more connected devices which makes it faster than its predecessor (4G network). This has made very significant improvements to technology. Downloading is easy and faster.
This means that you can download a movie in seconds compared to seven-minute with 4G LTE. 5G is actually 10 times faster. It improves performance and efficiency, it is also beneficial to the entertainment industry, Education, Transportation, Finance and Economy, Healthcare, and a lot more. Welcome to the amazing world of the 5G network.
Self-Driven vehicles and better still Autonomous driving. It is a technology in which Human is not needed to drive or control the car. These cars have sensors and software systems in them. It Navigates, prevents Collision, Changes lane, adequate Breaking, and up to date Map.
Don’t stress yourself, just sit, relax and safety is sure. This is awesome you can’t afford to miss out on this wonderful technology. It will not only adapt to the road conditions and strategy but also obey traffic laws. this makes it safe for other road users and pedestrians.
Computer Vision is a technology that obtains information through gaining a higher understanding of images, analyzing it with its components. it imitates the act of what human vision can do.
The benefit of Computer Vision is that it is never tired, unlike Human vision. It reduces the cost of training, it is accurate, it saves time and money, and it is fast and simple to use. You have it in your Cars, Healthcare, Provision stores, etc.
Augmented Reality is a technology that transforms information and virtual objects into real-world scenes in real-time. To explain more, it is the merging of a real-world scene with additional information to enhance the natural environment giving you an excellent experience.
It is different from a Virtual Reality which creates an artificial world. ”In 2013 Augmented Reality was possible through the use of Google Glass.” After then AR technology has been incorporated into Smartphones and you can enjoy it the use of these APPs, AR Emoji, ARKit, and ARCore. It has been predicted that there will be 1 billion users of Augmented Reality by 2021.
Extended Reality is simply a technology that merges the real and virtual environment. Human-machine interacting with computer technology and wearables just to give advanced human experience.
Extended reality(XR) activated the Virtual reality(VR), Augmented reality(AR), and Mixed Reality(MR) to produce a new form of reality. Giving another perspective to an object digitally and extended meaning to a real-world scene.
”The New York City study shows that drones carrying emergency Medical supplies can reach 911 callers in New York City significantly faster than ambulances, according to new research.” This is no doubt the safest and fastest means to transport medical supplies to quarantined areas.
These technologies have come to stay and will continue to build our world. Technology will take a greater phase in 2021, join the train.
These technologies have a lot of benefits that will change the world and make life easy for everyone. It has helped in tackling the pandemic and giving a positive result. It has increased the economic and social well being for all of us.
