Human connectivity

Technology and services to increase the ability of people to connect and change the way people connect through new and emerging technologies, products, and services.

Overview

Human connectivity is being defined by the ideas of artificial intelligence, big data, and algorithms across industry, entertainment, and environment. These technologies have seen the growth of virtual workspaces, remote working, new forms of streaming media, social media, and communication platforms to help connect people. This can also include connected technologies to help industries, such as agriculture, change their operations to create greater sustainability and create better return on investment through their operations.

The use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and algorithms offer new ways for people to make decisions and to second question those decisions. These technologies will also change the way companies decide to engage with consumers, how the decide to design and manufacture automobiles, the way the spaces we live, work, play, and shop in, and how social media companies will develop products to help people connect.

Network connections will change as network speeds continue to improve, latency continues to drop, and the ability to connect and manipulate devices on the edge of computing environments change the way people connect to their automobiles, their personal computers, their homes, their workplaces, and the way advertisers connect with those people.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence systems are being included in almost all industries, but when it comes to human connectivity and the workplace, artificial intelligence is being used to help people be more productive, help people help other's better, and improve people's memory and writing skills.
