COVID-19 has changed many aspects of the world we live in these days. Some of those changes were expected and some are surprising. The pandemic has catalyzed the evolution of many industries and emerging technologies in India and around the world.¬†Quartz India brought this interesting news to our attention in their article, “The Covid-19 pandemic is accelerating the adoption of emerging technologies in India.”

Maybe sheltering-in-place and extended quarantines have given people the time to seek new answers to problems? Encumbered by an extended lockdown, people are seeking new solutions to routine activities, such as worship services, medical consultations or education.

Now, it is not only having its moment in the sun, but is in great demand.
