In the next issue of Verdict Magazine, out in July, we explore how the coronavirus has impacted the rollout of 5G, both in terms of conspiracy theories about its role in the disease, and the growing demand for the technology that the lockdown has sparked. Will 5G adoption ultimately be accelerated by coronavirus, and how will the disease impact its development as a technology?
We also explore how a rapid acceleration of digitisation projects is feeding into the environment. The coronavirus took public focus off climate change for a while, but now attention is being shifted back towards it, could technology be used to prolong the historic emissions cut the pandemic caused?
Meanwhile, we also explore how the devastating blows some startup unicorns have taken in the past few months may feed into a shift in approach to funding and profit generation, as investors begin to expect a greater focus on economic sustainability earlier in the process.
