Digitized people and what this can lead to in the future

We are very connected to our technology. Today I would like to talk to you about how this changes us. How it makes us digitized people.

As a designer, I am undoubtedly interested in humans and their interaction with technology.

The current situation:

Indeed new products use Artificial Intelligence. A.I. is a human-made component that perceives reality and makes decisions to maximize the chances of achieving the goals given by humans. It uses machine learning technology. The ability of the computer to learn without the need for specific programming. You program the ending objective and what to analyze. But, you don’t program what solution it will find to solve the problem.

Also, the current technology can, for the moment, recognize objects, people, and places. Communicate and move naturally. Seek information. Create plans, deep fake, create virtual reality and augmented reality. And in the future, we will talk about neural networks. A strategy in which a person is connected to the device. And we can send mentally what we want from the computer. At some point, technology will become an extension of us. We will become the new generation of digitized people without a doubt.

The power of fear:

Many are frightened by the idea of ​​changing. And I understand that fear, evolutionary speaking, protects us from things we don’t know are good or bad for us. The experiments of Ivan Pavlov and John B. Watson give us much information about this emotion and how it impacts us. But by learning from human history, we can discover some dangerous behaviors.

Fear leads us to war, genocide, and discrimination. That was the case with the women convicted of witchcraft. They burned because they used herbs to treat diseases.

Also, we tend to use technology first for evil purposes, then for good. That’s what we did with the rockets. First, we made nuclear bombs and then rockets to go into space.

Technology is neither good nor bad, it’s just a reflection of the people who create it.

Chriss Duffey, Adobe CEO.

My fear is not of technology but of people and how they plan to use this power.

How change is made?

Talking about how humanity changes, the researchers know for now that evolution is not linear. It has a rapid stage of change, then a plateau, a rapid change, and a plateau. Why is this happening? Genetics has found that our body creates duplicates in genes. And they are activated only if their first row of genes does not face the environment. Usually, this duplicate receives information from the environment and changes. These doubles are passed on to the next generations. At one point, due to the evolution of the environment, they can be activated, creating a significant change in that generation.

Currently, the digitized people are:

  • They are more isolated from the community and closer to their devices.
  • People are more stressed and depressed due to isolation.
  • More narcissistic. Because they expect quick likes and appreciation, even though, in reality, we don’t get appreciation this quickly.
  • Freer to express their opinions (even if sometimes they have stupid opinions).
  • More creative. The social hierarchies are destroyed. We can become actors, directors, singers, or artists recognized internationally in a flash. We can change our status with a minimum of technology and human interaction.
  • More impatient and lacking in commitment. Because it is easy to change your workplace, life partner, or home. Especially when you are a click away from other options.
  • Lacking the ability to interact with people.
  • Equal because online anonymity no longer creates gender, age, or nationality discrimination.
  • With a longer life. Many technologies are used in operations. Early disease detection and implantation of various artificial organs make our life longer.

Ultimately, I can conclude that every change has advantages and disadvantages. But, by putting all in front of the spotlight, we gain the power to change what we do not like.


I don’t know what awaits me in the future, but I know in witch hands it is my future.

As Ralph Abernathy says

What do you think?

Where are we going, and what can we do to improve our lives?
