Digital connectivity is not only enhancing our lives, but reshaping society as we know it.
In March 2015, the Global Agenda Council on the Future of Software and Society surveyed more than 800 experts in information and communication technology about the “tipping points” or “moments when specific technological shifts [will] hit mainstream society.” The report summarizes when the respondents think these tipping points will become part of everyday life and details the positive and negative prospects that these trends pose. getAbstract recommends these accessible findings to anyone interested in how their lives will look by 2025.
