Digitalization and its Impact on Society
Digitalization has taken giant leaps and the impact is seen both in the industrial development and people’s personal lives. Digitalization is seen as a beneficial development by some, but others emphasize the negative impacts of the digital world. On this site both viewpoints are discussed.
Digitalization Brings Possibilities
The fast digitalization has had many impacts on the society. The fourth industrial revolution is on the way and digitalization has already enabled the manufacturing of goods at a higher speed and at lower cost. On personal level, digitalization has provided the ability to gain knowledge almost instantly. It has brought new and faster means of communication, better security solutions and groundbreaking medical innovations.
The Negative Effects of Digitalization
Digitalization has also brought some negative side effects to people’s lives. The constant flow of information and the fast-paced communication abilities has contributed to work related stress and mental health problems. Also being constantly preoccupied by the social media leaves many with too little down time and can work against good social relationships. Digitalization has also made many tasks so easy that some skills have rendered unnecessary to learn and people have started to rely too much on digital devices.
What Does the Future Look Like?
It is estimated that the digitalization will continue to escalate, and some services will be replaced by their digital equivalents. For a while this may cause some people to be at an unequal position, but as better and cheaper methods are developed, finally all services will be affordable to everybody.
