The global pandemic has forced schools around the globe to move online. But millions of students lack broadband internet and the devices necessary to access their online schoolwork. These students now fall into the homework gap and are unable to continue their education. Qualcomm supports emergency federal funding to help keep all students on track with connectivity and devices.
While we’ve been physically apart over the past few months, connectivity has kept us together in the ways that matter most. From healthcare and education to work and socializing, people across the globe are realizing the true potential for fast, secure, and reliable connectivity.
How we do almost everything is changing. The global pandemic is forcing us to reassess the way we work, learn, play, and care for ourselves, among other things. And increasingly, we’re looking to technology for solutions. Innovative technologies like XR, which were once considered “nice to haves,” are now being thrust into the spotlight. Luckily, companies like AppliedVR, a leading provider of therapeutic VR, are ready.
Staying connected is more important than ever for all of us around the world, and in both our personal and professional lives. Enter wireless technology: It’s helping us keep in touch with friends and family, as well as work and learn remotely. It’s also supporting life-saving telemedicine and is instrumental in getting people food and other immediate resources.
We believe in the technology we produce. It’s one of the reasons we’re set up in a way that allows a large portion of our workforce to work from home productively. Many small businesses, which have been particularly hard hit by this pandemic, are not as fortunate. With the need for connectivity at an all-time high, we find ourselves in a unique position to help.
Effective healthcare systems rely on a variety of testing and diagnostic tools to detect illnesses and provide the best possible outcomes for patients. One such tool is molecular diagnostics, a state-of-the-art practice that uses DNA for early diagnosis of disease infections. Traditionally, the practice of molecular diagnostics has been limited to centralized laboratories equipped with complex infrastructure, skilled lab technicians, and specialized storage.
Qualcomm is hoping to accelerate the adoption of smart city solutions through a new strategic partnership with Infinite Computer Solutions. Together, the two companies will try to provide developers with end-to-end IoT-as-a-Service (IoTaaS) technology that will make it easier bring new connected solutions to the market.
