Changing customer expectations, digital transformation and a focus on social issues like diversity, inclusion and mental health are each having profound impacts on the way we live, learn, work and play. The exponential opportunity for technological advancement to accelerate that change is evidenced by the rapid deployment of the COVID-19 vaccines, the expanded use of genomics in day-to-day healthcare, and our increasing shift to a carbon neutral future. The first half of 2021 has seen some incredible innovations and shifts in our lives.
