It also contributes to reducing poverty by increasing production, and creating new job opportunities.
Some of the major technological advances include:
AI and ML advanced machine-learning algorithms and deep learning transform business processes by accelerating data processing. They offer advanced capabilities for a range of applications. Examples include facial recognition and natural language processing text analysis and image analysis.
Robotics The rise of robotics, a form of disruptive innovation is transforming business processes by automating tasks and delivering significant cost savings. It also allows for quicker and more precise work, and enhanced human-robot interactions.
The field of agriculture technology is a prime example of an innovative technology and can help reduce hunger by boosting yields from crops. This innovation is particularly crucial for smallholder farmers in developing countries who produce up to 80 percent of the world’s food. However, the potential of technological innovation to support the growth of the economy and reduce poverty must be assessed as must the potential negative effects on society.
