Dear Reader, 

5G will bridge our hyperconnected world to the future of digital transformation as the next generation of wireless data networks. It brings new bandwidth available at rates two to ten times faster than 4G, resulting in a huge expansion of the information superhighway.

As compared with 4G, 5G delivers three major benefits: the ability to send and receive (much) more data, the ability to send data (much) faster, and the ability to perform well under heavy load.

In 2022, 5G could reach 1 billion users after just 3.5 years, compared to 4 years for 4G and 12 years for 3G, according to a Statista report. As of June 2022, a Global Mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) report states that around 70 countries have 5G networks, up from just 38 in mid-2020 with China and the United States being countries with the most 5G cities.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi joined the elite club on October 1 by launching the 5G telephonic services, which would usher an era of ultra-high-speed internet on mobile phones. In the first phase, the services have been rolled out for 13 major Indian cities and the technology will be introduced across the entire country in the next two years.

5G would have umpteen applications across industries and BFSI is one sector which has the potential to improve at 5G speed by combining technology and security to provide a fine tuned customer experience.

With 5G, data management could be faster and shall open doors for AI, persona based customer experience to give a very personalized banking experience to customers which is directly proportional to an increased customer acquisition. Banks and fintechs will have to take the first mover advantage to stand by leveraging the 5G technology by shaking hands with trusted partners for a collaborative deployment of 5G based solutions.

Voice Payments: The future of Payment technology

Voice payments is a process of paying, transferring and receiving money from individuals using voice command where you speak to a AI powered device such as speaker or smartphone for making payments. The process of setting up a voice payment account is very similar to that of paying through any online wallet. Once the payment app is opened on the device, the device will recognize your request, process the payment and respond with confirmation. This technology comes from the advancements made in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) where it utilizes Natural language processing (NLP), a branch of AI that allows computers to learn, understand, respond, and produce content in human languages. It works closely with voice recognition engines where human speech is converted from analog to digital form which is being used in Google Assistant, Amazon’s Alexa or Apple’s Siri.

The future of Buildings - Self Repairing Houses

Home ownership can be a drag. It's expensive and maintenance is time consuming. Today we rely on concrete and steel to build our world, but these materials are difficult to produce, transport, and assemble, and they eventually wear out or break down.
