How Does Emerging Technology Affect Society?

We’re living through a period of rapid technological change that has transformed many aspects of human life and work, from communication to transportation, and promises to transform many more over the next few decades if we are more open and accepting technological advancements.

Imagine living in a world where you can have virtual patient-doctor meetings, control what you share with others and what you don’t, control what you feel and how you manage your emotions, and share memories with friends without meeting them face-to-face.

This future might sound farfetched, but it’s closer than many people realize. It could be just around the corner if we embrace emerging technologies that are already available today. And these technologies have implications for society, so understanding them is vital.

Health Benefits

Technology will provide more opportunities to be healthier and live longer. You will be able to live happily and stay fit and track your activity like people are doing with Fitbit and other activity trackers. All of this will lead to better research and a better lifestyle eventually.

Advanced Communication

The rate at which the ways of communications are emerging and advancing, soon we will be able to communicate in ways that an average person can not imagine today. We may physically feel and smell the person we are calling will change how we communicate today.

Improved Business

You’ll be able to make an informed and measured decision when doing business, and all the trends will be predicted. That way, businesses worldwide will be improved, and you’ll be able to get more money out of your investments. Technology will change business for good.

It sounds too good to be accurate, but it isn’t anymore. We already see these technologies emerge. They are not mainstream yet because they haven’t been commercialized and adopted worldwide, but soon will be.
