WHAT IS IT?
Digital transformation accelerated by the pandemic has seen many disruptive technologies deployed across industries. We look at the most common types

WHY IMPORTANT
Disruptive technology is an advancement that changes the way consumers, industries, or businesses operate. Disruptive techs have the potential to replace age-old practices. Few areas of business are seeing more such changes than supply chains. These are evolving to become digital networks that are on-demand and always-on. As such, they have the potential to deliver massive economic and environmental rewards, boosting productivity and sustainability, driving new markets, and encouraging innovation as digital transformation continues.

WHAT IS IT?
With hyper-automation, organizations can process data intelligently by using the right technology- Machine Learning (ML), Optical Character Recognition (OCR), NLP and ensure that their people achieve the right work-life balance which is crucial to retaining valuable human resources.

WHY IMPORTANT
It is humanly impossible to process data of such mammoth proportions without any errors. A single error can have an avalanche effect on the entire process and cost the organization dearly.

It is this pain point that hyper-automation seeks to address with the aid of Artificial Intelligent and Robotic process automation. Any industry which involves manual and repetitive processes with unstructured data stand to benefit the most from hyper-automation

WHAT IS IT?
A created shock-absorbing material that protects like a metal but is lighter, stronger, reusable.

WHY IMPORTANT

The new foam-like material could be a game-changer for helmets, body armor, and automobile and aerospace parts. Being lighter could reduce fuel consumption and the environmental impact of vehicles

WHAT IS IT?

A synopsis of each regional market, inclusive of their projected growth rate during the forecast duration is enclosed in the document.

WHY IMPORTANT

An economy-wide database of the regional studies the impact of COVID-19 pandemic l and draws attention to the popular tactics adopted by major players to adapt to the uncertainties in the industry.

WHAT IS IT?
Computer vision neural network-powered “Choose My Model” try-on feature, now in beta, which will now allow Walmart customers to select a model that better matches their own appearance and body type. Online shoppers will be able to choose from among 50 different models to find one who best reflects their own skin tone, height and body shape so they can get a better idea of how clothing would look on them.

WHY IMPORTANT
One of the most frustrating aspects of shopping for clothes online is understanding how an item will actually look on you. Also, helping to cut down on the number of returns of clothes that don’t work when tried on at home.

WHAT IS IT?
Predictive analysis focuses on determining outcomes based on performance and demographic data. The concept behind this method is that, by acknowledging how many students will be earning a degree for that year, higher education institutions can make better decisions.

WHY IMORTANT
One of the most significant advantages of using predictive analytics in higher education is that it can positively affect the ratio of caseload vs. full-time advisors at colleges.

Certain students need more individualized attention, which is why using predictive analysis to determine who they are and thus increase their chances of getting a degree is something colleges are starting to do.

WHAT IS IT?
A major theoretical and experimental breakthrough that allows scientists to predict, with an unprecedented precision, when a soft material will crack and fail.

WHY IMPORTANT
The findings have immediate implications for the engineering and manufacture of a wide range of polymers. They also provide insights into how natural soft materials -- such as the connective tissues in our bodies and even our brains -- break down. This advance provides a missing link between chemistry and materials science and engineering for polymer networks to understand the mechanics of cavitation or the sudden, unstable crack-causing expansions within soft materials and tissues.

WHAT IS IT?

A DAO is an organization that is focused on a specific mission, and its members work in coordination according to a shared set of rules encoded on a blockchain. The major purpose of the decentralized autonomous organization is to help eradicate a significant problem in many conventional organizations — the principal-agent problem.

WHY IMPORTANT

The DAO is one major invention that is challenging current systems of governance. Utilizing NFTs, DAOs are changing our perspective of how organizations and systems should be run, and they put further credence to the idea that the optimal form of governance does not have to do with hierarchical structures.
