Study of everyday digital lifeEveryday 2030: the future of networking
In the future, we will no longer merely be networked with people, but increasingly with intelligent objects. On behalf of Swisscom, the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute (GDI) investigated how our everyday digital life will look in 15 years. After all, in a hypernetworked society, questions will arise, such as: who will have control over our data? Or: how will societal structures, processes, values and behaviours change?
According to Bettina Höchli, co-author of the study, the greatest change in business will be brought about by the use of robots and 3-D printers, as well as the sharing economy, which will greatly reduce production costs. In addition, the processing of data and management of information will become the core of every business. Thus, in the future, digitisation will radically change every industry, from agriculture to finance and from education to medicine.
