How Far Has Technology Gone in 2021?

The year 2021 has been vastly different than the world we live in today. The investments made over the next three years will dictate what the world will look like.

The technology that has come up in 2021 can be broken into various categories: 5G, Artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), and Virtual Reality (VR).

5G networks are expected to go live by 2020, and they are said to improve internet connectivity by 10-20 times. AI, IoT, and VR are predicted to become mainstream by 2020 as well. In the past, technology was built with a linear progression in mind. Today, we have seen an evolution where artificial intelligence and machine learning are being baked into the development process.

This has helped enable a new way of thinking about how to solve problems and create new innovations. This means that AI is no longer just an afterthought but instead the driving force behind innovation and creativity for many companies today.

The world population is estimated to reach 8.7 billion in 2022, which is a staggering increase from the current number of 7.9 billion people. The growth rate of the population is slowing down due to increased living standards, big families, and increasing education levels with girls.

Unique Mobile Users

Today, there are approximately 5.2 billion global mobile subscribers. This will account for the changing demographics in the world where more people are getting on board with mobile devices and how they are used for different purposes.

It will be interesting to see how these changes will affect people’s lives in the future, but it is safe to say that mobile usage is not going anywhere soon.
