Digital Culture: How Technology is Changing the Way We Live
22 May 2023
At one point, the idea of computers interacting with one another was like a crazy dream that only a select few people with a lot of imagination could imagine. Now, fast forward to today, not only are we getting closer to discovering life elsewhere in the universe, but computers are also driving us around.
Not only are emerging technologies simplifying our daily lives, but they are also fundamentally altering our way of life. These machines are adding a new dimension to how we interact with the world today, from our cars to how we learn and build houses. And contrary to popular belief, these are actual technologies to which we already have access.
This article will look at how technology is changing how we live, from how much information we now have about the human body to how much it costs and how well we live.
1. Architecture and housing Our lives are heavily influenced by housing. With 3D delivering, draftsmen and architects currently produce their models and introductions with additional subtleties.
- Although 3D is no longer a new technology, its impact has not yet diminished. Architects had to work with cards that could only be seen in two dimensions before using 3D technology, or they had to make their presentations by hand. They would always need a lot of explanation before clients understood the specifics of their presentations, which were only average.
- “3D rendering in architecture is a complex process that produces life-like presentation of buildings in image-ready prints,” asserts Stefan Kaertner.
2. Big Data Data aids professionals in eliminating speculation and guesswork from their work.
Today, big data is having a big effect on the world. The technology behind how we generate meaningful data is just as remarkable as the advantages we derive from the availability of big data. We are witnessing a real-time data rush from IoTs to wearable devices like the Apple Watch.
- Some research indicates that by 2020, approximately 1.7 megabytes of new information will be created for each individual every second.
- Who are the individuals who stand to gain from this enormous influx of data? Big data would be required first by insurance, health, and, of course, leading technology and marketing businesses.
3. Patients with health conditions that were previously difficult to diagnose are receiving better care thanks to health and mental analysis technology. Not only are healthcare providers able to easily track a patient’s health record, but they are also able to offer treatments with ease thanks to the data that has become accessible to doctors and healthcare companies as a result of technological advancements.
4. Accessibility to the Internet For a lot of people around the world, having access to the Internet is still a luxury.
One of the goals of some of the world’s most influential technologists, like Mark Zuckerberg and Google, is to provide Internet access to some of the world’s most remote areas. Thanks to innovations like the Internet powered by balloons and unmanned solar-powered aircraft, both have been able to realize their goals.
- Not only are these technologies making it easier for people all over the world to connect to the Internet by making it available in places where it was previously unavailable, but they are also making it less expensive to use the Internet in places where it is available.
5. The way we consume content has been redefined by virtual reality. Digi-Capital, a tech M&A advisory firm, estimates that the technology-created industry could be worth as much as $30 billion by 2020.
- VR content consumption is on the rise, and in 2015 alone, over 200,000 game developers registered to create games for the Oculus Rift. The market for virtual reality hardware is certain to be enormous as virtual reality alters how people consume content. As per information from Statista, the VR equipment showcasing would be valued at $5.2 by 2020.
The way we live today is significantly influenced by technology. In just a few years, pretty much everything we do now will be done differently. Smatter cities are emerging in third-world nations as more nations adopt policies that permit drive-less automobiles to transport passengers. The way we live will continue to be shaped by technology.
