The world is moving fast towards full connectivity from all corners of it. This will affect the world and the way it gathers and disseminates information in all areas of life. The internet is thus ambiguous as to what position it will hold, however, it will be at the top and the importance high in our life. The media is another important factor. This will depict where we would be in 2025 and beyond that. Tech like virtual reality, holographs, and teleconferencing will be the big news in a world that has left handheld devices to tech that is smaller, wearable, and easy to carry and understand. Even then, the internet will be a major player for all tech to work; we can see that in the Google Home assistants, an experience not far on large scales. Like roads, schools, banks, etc.
The need for ISP will thus be inevitable and competition will get tough among the top companies in the USA. However, for 2021 only a few have managed to stay on top with their outclass services because service matters as experience do. One such example is CenturyLink providing outclass customer services and offerings for both home and office which make dynamic content possible to be seen and used such as 3D animation tech and computer for hardcore graphics and CGI on movie sets and using Internet of Things at home/office.
How the World Will Be Shaped By Technology
A study comprising of 2,558 experts, as well as technology builders, revealed similar results: By 2025, there are expectations amongst all that there will be major changes in the technology field. The point where they all differ is in the ramifications, which will be noted. However, there is consensus that there will be:
- An invisible and immersive network on a global scale: it will be an ambient network-based computing environment that will be built with continuous propagation of smart technology. This technology will include sensors, software, cameras, and databases, along with major data centers located all over the world. This information-gathering net will be present all over the world and be called the Internet of Things.
- “Augmented reality” improvements to the present real-world inputs will allow people to perceive their life with implantable, wearable, or portable technology.
- A major disruption to how business has been conducted in the 20thcentury (the major industries impacted will be entertainment, finance, publishers, and education).
- There will be databasing, tagging as well as intelligent analytical mapping of social as well as physical spaces.
The experts contacted expected the currently viewable positive as well as negative trends to expand and extend with the development in technology and its use. They expect this to revolutionize most of the human interactions we consider normal now: health care, work, education, entertainment as well as politics. Most believe that a higher level of connectivity will be positive, however, there are some areas of concern that are also common. Experts have reported heightened concerns about interpersonal ethics, the level of surveillance, and the use of this information for terror and crimes, which will lead societies to be forced to question the best ways to establish trust and security for their civilians while respecting their rights.
In another questionnaire, the respondents were asked to think about what they felt life would be like in the year 2025: This question was posed keeping in mind the COVID-19 pandemic along with the other crises the world faced in 2020. There were responses received from 915 movers and shakers of the world. Most of the respondents described their perception of a 2025 world as being a “tell-everything”. Simultaneously, a significant portion of the experts expressed hope that going forward, the changes brought by the COVID pandemic and the lessons learned will allow things to be better:
- Inauguration of new reforms focused on racial justice and social equities: the critiques of the currently applicable economic arrangements as well as capitalism have led to gaining of support from activists and consequently from policymakers.
- Enhancement to the quality of life experienced by workers and families: flexible work hours, work from home, and already adjusted communities to these changes.
- Producing technological enhancements concerning virtual as well as augmented realities along with AI which will allow people to be safer, live smarter, and be overall more productive in their lives. This will be possible because of “smart systems” being implemented in key areas including health care, educational institutes as well as community living.
Some of the keywords used by experts frequently included punctuated equilibrium, exponential scale, inflection point, unprecedented challenge, unthinkable scale, and massive disruption. They believe that these changes will refigure the fundamental realities, which have governed the world until now. One of the major changes they expect to see and continue includes changes to the concept of physical presence being linked to trust in people. The experts also wondered if humans could effectively deal with these changes due to their inherent nature of being interpersonal creatures.
2025 and Beyond
Some of the more beneficial changes that experts are excited to see include the Internet of Medical Things which be a revolution in sensors and medical devices allowing a new, more efficient wave of patient monitoring. This will include smart machines allowing better heart health monitoring as well as improvements in synthetic biology offerings along with advanced drug testing and targeting disease therapy. These changes will also include genetic diagnostic screenings as well as a new class of online/ telecare workers which will reduce the load on hospitals.
There have also been forecasts of social media systems in the 3D models, which will allow for a more interactive and richer human interaction – via the use of holograms and the development of interdigital agents who will take over the time-consuming tasks. There are also forecasts of “Flying Internet of Things” in which there will be an increase in drones for surveillance, exploring as well as delivery tasks; this has been termed as being a ubiquitous augmented reality. On a daily level, the experts also believe that there will be improvements seen in the speech and facial recognition systems, real-time languages translation, sensory suits, 3D glasses, all of which will be supported by broader network bandwidths. These changes will bring about a more technologically incorporated future in 2025 and beyond!
