Technology Standards, ‘Tech Debt’ Among Issues Media Will Face After An Unusual 2020

Technology development has sped up, rather than slowed down, during 2020, as the global coronavirus pandemic has led companies to quickly implement workflows they might have only imagined before having to deploy widespread remote operations.

At the same time, the scramble to move operations off-premises has pushed technologists to focus on next steps, including the need for standards that will apply across media supply chains and to govern media’s use of artificial intelligence among other things.

That, in a nutshell, captures a conversation among four technology leaders and a pair of rising stars that is set to take place Monday, Oct. 19, at 4 p.m. ET.

All six of the technologists participating in the “Predictions for 2021,” will have just received TVNewsCheck’s 2020 Women in Technology Awards in a presentation ceremony webcast live by TVNewsCheck.

Among their predictions:

  • Media companies that have scrambled to implement solutions to support

Florida educators say pandemic “is not over and it’s not going anywhere in the near future”

CBS News is chronicling what has changed in the lives of residents of some of the biggest battleground states in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s been six weeks since Rocky Hannah, Leon County Schools superintendent in North Florida, reopened schools after abruptly closing in the spring due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The county allowed children to return to schools on August 31 in order to avoid potential financial penalties from Florida for not offering in-person options. Forty-four percent came back to in-person classrooms while 55% opted to start the school year remotely.  

“There were a lot of our parents that needed to get back to work, that needed their children in school, and by us giving families those options, I think we absolutely did the right thing,” said Hannah.  

When CBS News spoke with Hannah in July, the county had made an $11 million investment to purchase 32,500 laptops

New Technology Allows Circuits To Be Printed Directly On The Skin

Sensors printed directly on the skin have been inching closer to commercial reality in recent years. The dream of highly sensitive sensors could have a wide array of applications, from robotics to medicine, but the field has been limited by its method of circuit printing. Currently, printing circuits directly on the skin requires a lot of heat – something the skin isn’t generally fond of.

Now, researchers believe they may have solved this problem. A team from Penn State University have developed a method of fabricating high-performance circuitry directly on skin without heat, according to a study published in ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces.

While flexible sensors already exist and have applications in future physiological monitoring, applying that technology to the skin has remained an issue for scientists. If this process is viable on a large scale, it may pave the way for the technology to help patients with various

Apple looks to the future with experimental technology

As a rule, Apple doesn’t talk about its future plans. Chief executive Tim Cook dodges questions about the company’s upcoming products and new iPhones are closely guarded until they’re revealed to the world.

But Tuesday’s reveal of the iPhone 12 was a signal of Apple’s future and gave analysts a clear idea of the technologies which Apple sees as crucial to the iPhone.

The most obvious technological leap in the new iPhones was adding 5G connectivity across all of the new devices.

Apple certainly isn’t first to make a 5G smartphone but adding 5G across the range of devices shows that Apple is gambling on the improved download speeds and bandwidth of 5G to hook in customers wishing to use data-intensive apps everywhere they go.

The company is increasingly reliant on revenue from its stable of services such as its music streaming and Apple TV subscriptions. Adding 5G allows customers
