The potential of deep tech is being realized and there is likely to be the fourth wave of innovation driven by this technology. In this article, let’s take a look at what this technology is and its future.
What is deep tech?
Deep tech is simply a term used for pioneering technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), AR/VR (Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality), Blockchain, etc. It is applied to solve problems in many areas of life.
This technology also refers to startups based on substantive scientific or technological innovation. It converges around three main disciplines: Matter and Energy, Computing and Perception, and Sensing and Motion.
Therefore, it can be said that it is the result of the development of science and technology in countries, so we must attach to the role of basic research as the foundation for its development later.
Why deep tech is important?
These tech businesses have an important role in key areas of life such as science, agriculture or energy production, etc. These businesses are making great contributions to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Besides economic growth, pressing global concerns are also concerned and addressed by businesses.
In addition, in the medical field, new inventions such as biotechnology also make human treatment more likely to succeed. Or in the area of energy production, the innovation of these businesses helps open the door to solar energy adoption.
Barriers to innovation are being removed through the use of this technology. In addition, the innovation thanks to the technology also helps to ensure the safety of the environment, stabilize the human ecosystem and improve the quality of life.
Deep tech is enabling a new era of advances
Deep tech is considered a new technology with many outstanding advantages compared to current technology. They require in-depth research to develop into practical and commercialized applications. These technologies will shape the way problems are solved globally. They have the potential to create markets of their own or disrupt existing industries. At the same time, it also can have good intellectual property protection, which is difficult to copy and imitate, creating competitive advantages and barriers to competitors.
Technology is at the heart of the future wave of information and industrial revolution and it will be the key that corporations and venture capitalists are looking for. It focuses on areas such as quantum computers, optoelectronics, robotics and drones, blockchain technology, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, and advanced materials. Along with three typical characteristics from a business perspective, which are of great influence, it takes a long time to apply in practice and requires a huge financial resource to invest, therefore, it is creating a new era of advances.
Deep technology is changing the way we understand the technology and is shaping the world in new ways. Currently, the trend of start-ups and investments based on these technologies is increasingly receiving the attention of the startup community and investors around the world.
