Technology at the time of the coronavirus: a sudden evolution that led to a break from the past. Digital world expert, Maurizio Sala, tells us how this will also revolutionise our daily lives.
It is through everyone’s eyes that we are experiencing an epochal transformation, which affects our way of living, working, buying: artificial intelligence, avatars and blockchains will completely change our world.
Maurizio Sala, expert in Digital brand strategy and User Experience Design, describes the situation in an interview with Genio & Impresa, explaining how digital will prove vital for all sectors. But he also warns that, alongside technological innovation, a training course will be needed to prepare people for the use of the new tools.
We are already experiencing the first and most important change and it concerns the world of work with smart working. “There are experiments at a very advanced stage for systems capable of enabling cloud meetings in virtual 3D rooms, where participants remotely correspond to avatars connected in real time with the original natural person.” The world of industry, on the other hand, will also be able to take advantage of the IoT to prevent interruptions in the supply chain, through the use of sensors integrated with tracking platforms; in addition, thanks to the integration of AR / VR systems (Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality) it will be possible to follow the operation of the machinery and carry out remote maintenance of the production plants.
Again, according to the expert, the blockchain– a decentralised and inviolable platform, will be an effective and safe tool for the circulation of documents of the Public Administration. In healthcare then, “technology is ideal for the circulation of medical data and medical records, for the management of services and the rapid delivery of reimbursements” adds Sala. We close with fashion, a sector hit hard by lockdown, which will be able to count on the technology to design and present 3D garments, promote online fashion shows and virtual fitting rooms with digital human (photorealistic avatars of the person) and start the 3D prototyping of clothes.
In short, Maurizio Sala sees important changes on the horizon, which will soon become reality. First of all, a farewell to touch technology, especially on devices for public use, in favour of voice technology.
We just have to wait.
