Technology, though a single word, has brought about dramatic changes over the course of human history. Today, almost all of us, from the youngest to the oldest, are part of this great revolution, but at the same time technology has become an indispensable part of our lives.

The fact that it is an inevitable part is reflected by the impact that technology has caused on the daily activities of human life be it: the way we communicate today; the way we pay bills and transfer money; how we watch TV; how we live in and out of the home; how we stay safe and many more.

One of the most important areas for people, the field of technology that is closely related to technology, has undergone drastic changes in the development of new medical technology devices over the last 100 years, including data from the “Defishop” platform, note: electrocardiographic machines ; electron microscopy; kidney dialysis machine; CAT Scanner; AED automatic electronic defibrillators; MRI imaging, until the first robotic operation performed in the USA (2010).

Digitizing data as databases that circulate around the world today from a large number of platforms today provides the facts about the technology revolution over the years, so data speaks!

According to statistics from the scientific platform “Our World in Data” only the number of individuals who have access to the Internet in recent years has increased, regardless of the number of young population or not, only in Europe about 75% of the population considered active using the Internet, through PCs, mobile phones, gaming machines, TVs and various forms.

In addition to the widespread international use of the internet by various countries, we find almost similar statistics for the population of Kosovo. In-depth analysis of the demographic specifics of Kosovo based on Kosovo’s technology platform “STIKK”, we can talk about the fact that a very large 81% of the population of Kosovo uses the Internet every day.

And the Internet today in Kosovo is used by an overwhelming majority of 96%, while only 3% say they never use the Internet.

Specifically, the Internet is used more by students (100%) and the labor market population (96%).

Academically, the more educated people are, the more they use the Internet, 89% of primary school students, 99% of college students.

Among all the processes that can be accomplished through the Internet, the statistics from “STIKK” on the use of the Internet by the population in Kosovo turn out to be: communication 93%, music 37%, reading curiosities 35%, news 22%, personal email 19%, 18% study materials, and research and other minorities.

From such a large number of users around the world, based on Internet World Stats research, it turns out that so far the top 10 languages ​​used by mankind on the Internet are: English (25.2%), Chinese (19.3%), Spanish (7.9%), Arabic (5.2%), Portuguese (3.9%), Indonesian (3.9%), French (3.3%), Japanese (2.7%), Russian (2.5%) and German (2.1) %), 76.3% in total while the rest belong to other minorities. These figures tell us more about the extent and spread of one of the most needed forms of technology, the Internet. Technology has reduced the distances between each of us in a smaller world!

Undoubtedly among the most influenced by the ICT revolution according to data from The FutureWorkplace platform remain operating businesses, whose number has grown significantly within 10 years to about 187%. All of these businesses today deliver services remotely, ignoring the obstacles that existed before the ICT revolution, contacting partners and clients to schedule project-related appointments, the necessity of physical meetings with associates that have led to unnecessary time delays.

Therefore, with all these advantages that technology is offering today, it is not by chance that the number of young people in the field of ICT is constantly increasing. data resulting from “The FutureWorkplace”.

Not only in the field of medicine, business, and markets but also in education, the number of websites and software tools for youth education has increased, so far the total number of websites in the world has reached 1.7 billion, results in the blog “tech jury”.

Given that about 90% of the data in the world has been created in the last 2 years, what can be deduced from ICT followers is that the digital revolution with all this data is only just beginning and if growth continues of interest in ICT with this trend, a working quantum computer could arrive within the next 10 years that will enable exponential jumps in computing power.

To give direction to the conclusion of the research on the technology revolution, all these developments with this trend leave us to understand and look to the near future where artificial intelligence will surpass humans in many activities in just 10 years' future.
