New forms of technology are being created and implemented at a fast pace, and the 2021 year is no different than other years. There have been a number of new breakthroughs and this article will bring forth some of the most impressive technologies to come to light over the year. Some technologies in this article are already changing the lives of many, such as the mRNA vaccines, while other technologies will take effect in the very near future.
Messenger RNA Vaccines
The Messenger RNA Vaccines, also known as mRNA vaccines, is based upon research and study conducted over the course of the last two decades. Covid-19 hit the populations on earth and shut down economies worldwide, and with the help of the mRNA vaccines, the world has begun to open up again. New covid vaccines are being based upon this new technology. This new technology has never been applied to therapeutics, and only the future will show how much this technology will transform the world of medicine. This mRNA vaccine technology is easily studied, and scientists can manipulate and adjust the technology to fight against other Covid-19 variants as they arise. The mRNA vaccine is showing great promise to help combat other issues, such as HIV and sickle-cell disease. This new and exciting vaccine is even showing potential to help the body fight cancer within.
AI technology is advancing at a rapid pace. The GPT-3 is a grand step towards computers being able to speak and better understand the world, leading to better interactions. This model is the most literate AI model to date and has been trained by thousands of pieces of material online. The AI can mimic a human in its writing techniques and is the most advanced model of its kind.
Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular, yet the vehicles are plagued by a battery that just doesn’t last long enough until it needs to be charged again. This new battery technology, developed by QuantumScape, has the potential to extend the range up to 80% and also charge the battery at a much quicker rate. This battery technology will most likely hit the market in the year 2025.
