What great changes has “digital technology” brought to life?

1. Digital technology during the epidemic?

In January 2020, the whole country entered a state of joint anti-epidemic, and we all stayed at home without leaving home. If someone is infected, we need to find out the people who have contacted him, where he has been, what neighborhood he lives in, etc.

So, the question arises, how to find it?

At this time, we use big data (that is, a manifestation of digital technology). During the epidemic, we traveled through big data analysis to find close contacts, which can quickly query close contacts. In this way, we can quickly target and carry out isolation treatment.

Last night, I saw an article published by the official account of Shanghai Cancer Hospital, saying that the hospital’s doctors had been infected with the novel coronavirus, and the hospital began to stop seeing doctors.

In this way, patients can choose to change to another hospital after seeing it, because those who follow the official account of this hospital are either patients or their families.

In addition to what I mentioned above, the role of digital technology in the epidemic has also played a vital role in other aspects, such as online classes for students during the epidemic, video calls with their families, etc. These are all the benefits brought to us by digital technology.

2. Application and analysis of big data?

Next, let’s talk about big data.

Take two examples:

1. Beijing Bus Superpass generates 40 million card swipe records every day. Analyzing these card swipe records can clearly understand the travel rules of Beijing citizens and effectively improve urban traffic.

2. In the past, “medical poverty alleviation” was to send doctors from developed areas to remote areas with backward medical conditions to provide local medical assistance.

The first thing the doctor does when the doctor arrives at the destination after going through the boat is not to train other doctors first, but to adapt to the local environment first, so that the time for medical poverty alleviation will be greatly reduced.

With digital technology, doctors just need to talk to doctors in remote areas online, and even communicate with patients there. We store all these big data and analyze them.

From the above two examples, we can see that we have applied digital technology to all aspects of our lives.

In addition, there is also a real-time data of shared bicycles, taxis and online car-hailing, so that these drivers can know how many people in a region have needs, how many taxis and how many online car-hailing in this area are clear at a glance, and drivers can go to places with fewer vehicles when they see more vehicles in a certain area.

3. The future development of digital technology?

In the future, digital technology will provide computing, services and applications to the public as a public facility through cloud computing.
Although digital technology has brought us many benefits, digital technology also has some disadvantages, such as data security, big data killing, etc.
Don’t worry too much. Before turning cloud computing into a public facility, the country will certainly issue corresponding laws and regulations to standardize the use of this public facility and protect the security of these data.
