The rising number of identity thefts and breaches, as well as the increased use of IoT/BYOD devices, are driving up demand for MFA.

Allowing for the remote monitoring of patients, up-to-date information as well as an overall better treatment plan from physicians, these devices are changing the landscape of modern-day medicine. Of course, when technology utilizes wireless features, its connectivity is what deems the product a success or failure. If the connectivity elements aren't prepared to host a large number of users, or don't have a cyber-attack plan in place, these products will not fit the bill for the various applications within the healthcare industry.

The last few years have brought riotous growth for non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The problem-solving program DENDRAL was first used in organic chemistry during this decade, paving the way for MYCIN, one of the earliest and most significant uses of AI in healthcare.

Orwell was onto something when he suggested that future cities of our planet would host an all-seeing eye that aims to track and scrutinize human interactions.
