Technology and society

The same has happened with Virtual Reality, VR, which allow immersive experiences thanks to video games. Projects such as Oculus Rift led the way. The company Oculus has already launched several models of VR glasses for players to immerse themselves in the worlds that developers create, and that they can explore with total freedom. But this is just the beginning. There is still much room for improvement in gameplay.

The development and implementation of 5G has a strong impact on online video game development technology, especially competitive ones. Your users need fast and reliable connections. If latency is too high, actions slow down and the experience suffers. It is normal to play with a delay of about 30-40 milliseconds. In fact, reaching the second is synonymous with the connection may have a problem.

5G offers latencies down to a single millisecond, allowing real-time gaming. Thus, video games on the cell phone could gain in users, especially those that rely on live streaming services. Companies such as Microsoft and Nvidia have platforms dedicated to this activity that allow access to computer and video console games anywhere, with only a quality connection and a conventional terminal.

Positive Technology examples

Positive Technology is a new field that combines technological advances with the contributions of Positive Psychology. Positive Psychology illuminates how ICTs can be applied to foster positive emotions, promote personal growth and contribute to social development. Positive Technology aims to improve the characteristics of personal experiences with the objective of enhancing well-being and fostering the development of strengths in individuals, organizations and societies. This paper briefly describes Martin Seligman's theory of Happiness and makes a theoretical review of the existing literature on Positive Technology, identifying its fundamental characteristics and objectives as well as the most recent developments of this emerging discipline.

Negative influence of technology

Today, more than 60% of the population has access to the web, 3 billion people own a smartphone and more than 2.14 billion made at least one purchase online in 2021. These are just three examples that demonstrate how far the development of modern technology has come and how it has changed the way we live.

Another advantage of technology is that it is very easy to access all kinds of multimedia content related to entertainment. Today, streaming video and audio account for 70% of web traffic, a fact that proves that the web is one of the main sources of entertainment in the 21st century.

Modern technology increases the productivity and efficiency of human activities, as it allows us to perform tasks in less time. In addition, thanks to the large amount of information available, it is possible to make better decisions and reduce human errors.

The future of humanity seems to be heading towards what many movies have predicted: a society where artificial intelligence (AI) and robots will play a very important role. How far will these new technologies go? Will they be able to think or have feelings? Will they replace human beings? These are some of the ethical dilemmas we will face in the coming decades.

Sociology of technology

In Latin America, personal relationships are fundamental in the lives of 74% of individuals, above all, based on trust and supported by technology to build and maintain quality connections and closeness with others (78%).

In Mexico, 82% consider that technology is a facilitator to achieve quality relationships, especially via social networks, since for 72% it is an indispensable tool to connect with others.

Talking about connections usually leads us to think of technology, but now that life is more digital, we know that people are the ones who give meaning to technology and that the most important connections are human, said Alfonso Gómez Palacios, CEO of Telefónica Hispanoamérica.
