Business and life after COVID-19 ( 5th MARCH 2020 )
WHERE WILL WE BE IN SIX MONTHS, A YEAR, TEN YEARS FROM NOW?
How our mindset about our work and life is going to change? How the way of doing business is going to change? How our socio-economic scenario will change? How about national or international politics? Is it the end of business travel and conferences? Will work from home will be a new reality? Will OK2GO will be the new normal for international travel? How we regard our privacy? Will cyberspace is the new normal for the future of work, play and everything in between?
Everything that could move online will move online
Education, health, shopping and entertainment will become more virtual. Collaborative tools will be cheaper, faster and with better quality. There will be better UX for conference calls, frictionless, distraction-free remote team collaboration. Thee will be better online learning techniques and tools like ZOOM will get more popularity.
Future of Work @HOME
Work from home will be new normal. People will look for dedicated home office space, maybe sound-proof, maybe with separate entrance. Productivity will be more important than just to sit on the laptop with internet connectivity. You will be more accountable. Home will be more empowered with platforms to connect, router, secure network and smart tools.
Business Travel and Conferences will lose it's cool
Companies will re-examine their employee's flying habits. Company and government will discourage to fly halfway across the earth for two days conference or work. Business Travel will not be an engine of commerce. In-person experience for all meetings will lose its cool. There may be a global agreement on the pre-screening of travellers by their home country. However, OK2GO will be standard flying norms.
We are going to face a serious recession.
The economics of collapse is fairly straightforward. Businesses exist to make a profit. If they can’t produce, they can’t sell things. This means they won’t make profits, which means they are less able to employ you. Business will keep their employee for a short period time. But, if things start to look really bad, then they won’t keep them.
AI and Robotics will play a greater role
Efforts have been intensified to harness AI technologies to discover new drugs – either vaccine or treatment. AI is proving a useful tool for dramatically reducing the time needed to identify potential drug candidates, possibly saving years of research. Companies will go for plans to speed its adoption of AI and machine learning in a vast area of business. Note that a robot will not be ill. A variety of healthcare functions have already started to be performed by robots, from diagnosis to temperature monitoring.
Ubiquitous health screening - a new normal
Now each of us will be regarded as a threat and every one of us will be treated the same. To enter any building or space, just a taking flight to another country, people will be required by law to go through automatic health scan and can be turned away if they fail. OK2GO advanced AI-based clearance system linked with standard monitoring system will be a new normal.
The Birth of the Clean Regime
People, communities, societies and government will become more responsive towards cleaning due to fear of another pandemic. Government budget and strategies will focus on societal cleanliness as a matter of public health. Diligent, humanity driven hygiene practices will become an essential element of our daily routines and a crucial requirement of combating the threat of future outbreaks￼￼.
Earth and the environment will get a chance
The coronavirus pandemic is a wake-up call to stop exceeding the planet’s limits. Like COVID-19, climate change, biodiversity loss, and financial collapses do not observe national or even physical borders. Rather than simply reacting to disasters, we can use science to design economies that will mitigate the threats of climate change, biodiversity loss, and pandemics. We must start investing in what matters, by laying the foundation for a green, circular economy that is anchored in nature-based solutions and geared toward the public good.
Privacy takes back seat
Governments around the world began instituting health monitoring policies, leveraging GPS and other data on phones and watches and fitness band to halt the spread of the coronavirus. The long-term implications of a permanent surveillance infrastructure became apparent. COVID-19 crisis, surveillance sounded sensible, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. In a post- virus age, are we finally going to see the true death of privacy?
