New technology trends of 2022
«BIG DATA» DEVIENT «MASSIVE DATA»
“Big data” refers to all the means of analysis, systematic extraction of information and other forms of processing of databases that are too large or too complex to be handled by traditional software. This sector brings together a host of professions and its annual growth rate is estimated at more than 30% per year. Materials Zone is a start-up that offers tools to collect, interpret, communicate and exchange scientific data. Bigeye offers a service to “clean up” and identify problems in databases such as outliers and unexplained values. Many listed companies are also active in “Big Data”. Among them: IBM, Salesforce, Alphabet (Google) and Oracle, also one of the biggest data has been coming from youtube, there are many people on youtube who decided that maintaining a youtube channel can replace their daily job, and even though some buy youtube views that is just one other way to promote their content to bigger audience.
HEALTH: THE TELEMEDICINE BOOM
The Covid-19 epidemic has given an unprecedented boost to telemedicine, favoring the boom in teleconsultations. Very few practitioners had experienced these before confinement, but start-ups like Doctolib have enabled millions of patients to consult their doctor remotely in recent months. Tytocare goes even further with the development of a portable examination kit allowing patients to undergo medical examinations from home. Teladoc Health is also part of the universe of active titles in this field.
WILL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) OVERTAKE HUMANS?
Human-machine (HMI) and machine-machine interactions will soon be easier and more efficient than human-to-human interactions. According to Elon Musk, AI will surpass human capabilities by 2025. There are many AI start-ups – among them Moveworks, which works on solving IT solutions, Grammarly which allows you to write clear and error-free texts or Alphasense which helps you find relevant information more quickly in a text. The main companies listed and active in this field are Nvidia, Baidu, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft and Alphabet.
ENERGY: SUSTAINABILITY IS NO LONGER A CHOICE
We need energy more and more, but on condition that the resources used are respectful of the climate, the environment and biodiversity. There are many “start-ups” working on sustainable energy production. These include Fervo Energy, which harvests geothermal energy, Oxford Photovoltaics, which develops next-generation solar panels, and Kite Power Systems, which supplies wind energy generated by kites. Many listed stocks also focus on these solutions, such as Brookfield Renewable Partners, First Solar or NextEra Energy.
QUANTUM COMPUTING OR THE PROMISE OF THE IMPOSSIBLE
A quantum computer is the equivalent of classical computers but which would carry out its calculations by directly using the laws of quantum physics and, basically, that of the superposition of quantum states. So these are “supercomputers” that help accelerate progress in areas like cybersecurity, drug development, financial modeling, and more. The Spanish start-up Multiverse Computing provides quantum software for the financial sector. Riverlane has developed an operating system that makes it easier to use quantum computers. Among the listed companies that have the greatest activity in quantum computing: Alphabet, NVIDIA, Applied Materials and Advanced Micro Devices.
