Reading Time: 4 minutes

Covid 19 pandemic has forced many of us to work from home. We bring you the top 5 technologies to learn in 2021, so you can make the most of your time at home. Staying home can turn out to be a blessing in disguise for you so let’s get started.

Top 5 Technologies To Learn In 2021

Artificial IntelligenceArtificial-Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is a field that’s expected to see the most amount growth in the next year. AI can help interpret and understand the enormous amount of content produced. Machine Learning algorithms would become better informed and perform much more sophisticated operations. It is expected to be used to analyze interactions to determine underlying connections and insights to help predict demand for services like hospitals and enable authorities to make better decisions about resource utilization. AI will be used by businesses to detect the changing patterns of customer behavior and for detecting the various ways they can’t be satisfied. Global spending on cognitive and AI systems is expected to reach 57.6 billion dollars by 2021

Skills required to get into AI

  • Programming Languages
  • Linear Algebra
  • Probability
  • Big Data
  • Machine Learning Algorithms

Automation

With an increasing number of potential cases, initiatives towards self-driving vehicles would be a priority for civic authorities and many other organizations across the world. This ensures that the cost of human labor is reduced and handles customer demand there would also be an increase in the incorporation of robots in the care and assisted living sectors robotic devices are also expected to provide companionship to elderly people, drones are also expected to be incorporated for delivery of medicine groceries and other essential goods some of the popular companies in the field of automation are Siemens, Honeywell, ABB, Mitsubishi. 

Skills required to get into Automation

  • Programming and Scripting Skills
  • Configuration and Management Software
  • Understanding of Testing Tools.

Cloud Service

Cloud Services are expected to provide even more services that make the technology like AI and Robotics accessible to every business. Companies like Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and a number of startups and innovators are making it possible for everyone to access cutting-edge technology with little investment. Serverless computing is also something that’s being focused on as it provides its users the opportunity to work on the core product without operating and managing the servers. Hybrid cloud is also expected to show great growth thanks to its speed, ease of control, and security options. The global IAAS PAAS  and SAAS market size is supposed to grow to 81 billion dollars. 72 billion dollars and 140.6 billion US dollars respectively.  

Skills required to get into Cloud Computing

  • Understanding of the concepts like different cloud computing platforms
  • Programming Languages
  • Specialize in services belonging to Compute
  • Storage 
  • Database 
  • Domains

DARQ

Darq is an emerging technology that several major industries have their sights on. Darq is a combination of distributed ledger technology, artificial intelligence, extended reality, and quantum computing. 

Accenture introduced Darq, believes these technologies combined could have an enormous impact on technology as a whole. Darq is now primarily geared towards the healthcare industry where it is expected to lower the cost of care, improve labor productivity, and enable better experiences for consumers and partners. Due to its currently developing nature, only a few organizations have started taking advantage of this technology.

Skills required to Learn Darq 

  • DLT
  • AI
  • XR 
  • Quantum Computing

Augmented, Virtuality, and Extended Reality

In 2021 we can expect these forms of technology me further integrated into our lives usually working in tandem with some of the other technologies we’ve mentioned in the list AR and VR is expected to play a huge role in the field of healthcare by providing training simulations to help medical professionals and opticians to perform eye tests it is also to play a huge role in the educational sector greatly increasing the interactivity. The VR video and gaming market is expected to grow to 2.9 and 2 billion in 2021. Snap, Microsoft, AT&T, and Nexus Studios are some of the major companies working towards AR and VR. 

Skills required to learn Augmented, Virtuality and Extended Reality

  • Software Development
  • AR VR maintenance support 
  • Design/Graphics and Hardware engineering to work in this sector.
