Weather of Arabia - the8log - Every year, technology jumps us towards new levels of progress and contributes to changing aspects and aspects of life as we know it, and 2021 is no exception, as the world witnessed during the first half of this year technological innovations that will change the basic sectors as we know them.
Experts consider 2021 a golden year for technological innovations, especially after the rapid digital transformation that has occurred in the world as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, as these innovations are expected to contribute to accelerating the pace of digital transformation in the coming years.
From self-driving cars to robots that do household chores, to machine learning and 5G networks, through virtual reality and artificial intelligence, they are all technologies that will be more reality than speculation for the remainder of this year and the years to come.
It is expected that these innovations will have an impact on key sectors, especially health and financial services, transportation, and other vital sectors.
According to experts, 2021 is the year of digital transformation par excellence, as the most prominent technological trends that will shape the title for this year are artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, fifth generation data networks, automation, and the development of technologies for space.
Artificial intelligence will be an integral part of the various manufacturing processes, as brands have already begun to employ these technologies in their manufacturing and distribution processes, such as the famous clothing brand GAP.
Regarding the latest updates regarding the employment of Internet of Things and the fifth generation technologies, Amazon has worked to establish the Amazon Go system, which is designed to improve the experience of customers to purchase their home needs, whether through stores or through the website. As the name indicates, all the customer has to do is choose his needs from one of the Amazon stores dedicated to this, which does not require human intervention at all, in addition to the fact that the payment process is done automatically through the application. Customers can also choose their needs through the Amazon Go website without the need to take any additional steps, as the purchase process will be completed automatically without the need to put the needs in the shopping cart or enter credit card information.
Automation is constantly gaining ground as consulting software companies, manufacturing, and financial institutions increasingly employ automation technologies.
A number of companies operating in the space field are moving forward in the field of employing technology, such as Blue Origin and Space X, where the latter worked to launch the rocket spacecraft.
The question that resurfaces in this field is what changes will be experienced by different sectors such as health care, financial services and transportation in light of these accelerating technological innovations?
The Covid-19 pandemic has contributed to achieving unprecedented leaps in the world of health care thanks to technology, in this context, and in light of focusing on the health of the elderly as a priority, technology such as radar techniques and radar frequencies have been used to monitor the health of the elderly in an accurate manner.
These technologies have contributed to monitoring daily activities, sleep patterns, emergencies, and others in a regular and innovative way, in addition to monitoring breath and heart rate without the need for direct contact with patients.
The success of these technologies opens the door and prospects for emerging companies working in the field of healthcare in the Middle East.
In the field of financial transactions, IoT technologies will contribute to linking borrowers with payment systems that will enable them to obtain loans in order to purchase cars and obtain approval from financial institutions in a digital and automatic way.
This technology uses information about drivers' behavior on the road, which will form the basis for the approval of financial institutions to grant loans to them.
In the event that the driver is late in paying the ensuing dues, the device based on IoT technologies will disable the car engine until the payments are made.
Alternative data to support loan assessments will also contribute to creating financial opportunities for low-income individuals and financial institutions alike.
Two major technologies emerging in the field of communications and entertainment are the Crew in a Box and the Verizon SuperStadium 5 G Experience.
Video production enthusiasts will have a unique experience through Crew in a Box technology that specializes in remote video production, providing the best lighting equipment, cameras and telemetry equipment.
This technology can be used for various purposes such as interviews, commercials, video discussions, and other purposes.
The Verizon SuperStadium 5G Experience technology will allow football fans in the stadium to get unprecedented internet speed thanks to the 5G technologies on their phones, which will double the experience of watching matches in the stadium.
In the stadium, fans will be able to watch matches from 7 different camera angles as well as the ability to replay footage using augmented reality technologies, enabling fans to see their favorite players closer than ever before.
