With the start of the fourth industrial revolution at the beginning of the 21st century, the era of the internet and digitization began at the same time.

People from all over the world can increasingly get in touch with each other, both personally and in a business sense.

Interaction in social media in particular is part of the development of Generation Z.

The use of digital media has increased significantly over the past 20 years. Especially with the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, these communication channels are often the most important, if not in many cases the only way to communicate and stay in touch with the environment.

The pandemic also proved to be a booster for the further development of digital technologies such as machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI).

Everyday helpers can recognize, interpret and develop themselves.

Examples of this can be found everywhere and are increasingly being used.

Google, Amazon, Apple - Smart Companion penetrates everyday life

Almost everyone has come into contact with Alexa & Co.

Hardly anyone can escape the fascination of digitization and thus also of a modern lifestyle.

The possibility of making everyday life easier or reducing the time required is an interesting and attractive thought for many people.

With Amazon Echo or Google Home, for the first time in many households there is a voice box in the living room that delivers news, information and music on demand, tells jokes, but can also control household devices.

Even if the initial enthusiasm has evaporated, the language assistants have become part of everyday life and for many it is impossible to imagine life without them.

How is digitization changing our communication?

First of all, digitization means: Society is changing.

Media influence makes people more inscrutable and unpredictable. Combined with new opportunities, values ​​and advantages, digitization is a modern form of communication.

Opportunities arise primarily through the support of people in being able to work more efficiently, faster and more creatively.

Information and knowledge of any kind can be easily and easily transferred and processed with just one click.
