In my opinion, Today’s technologies are aiming in improving the lives of people take for eg: Siri, Cortana, OK Google, Alexa instead doing / performing tasks we are asking these functions do for us. This in a way reducing the amount of time to search from our palms.
The real problems aren’t solved for me anything to do with life saving. For eg: we are facing epidemic fake medical products which are manufactured in India and other South asian countries and sold in across the globe online. Here technology is a bane. People who have consumed fake medicines have lost lifes.
I hope new generation of IoT companies will also focus on solutions which can save lives.
