  1. 1. COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY LANDSCAPE in 2024 AD Communication 303-50 Andrea Jenkins
  2. 2. The dependency on communication technology will be overwhelming by 2024. First and foremost the ability to connect to one another will improve drastically with better wireless internet for everyone. The United States lacks in its ability to provide everyone with the access to the Internet and this will change by 2024. Instead of depending upon a carrier or a service provide you Internet capabilities, the access to the Internet will be a “right”. The Internet will available anywhere, for anyone to use as their forum to communicate with others.
  3. 3. According to William Kennard, the Chair of the FCC, "In a society where increasingly we are defined by access to information and what we earn is what we learn, if you don't have access to technology, you're going to be left in the digital dark ages. That's what the digital divide is all about." To provide free internet and the high-capacity fiber networks to reach American homes and business will be a great economic boost as well.
  4. 4. Regardless of where you are…
  5. 5. According to scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC): “When the number of committed opinion holders is below 10 percent, there is no visible progress in the spread of ideas. It would literally take the amount of time comparable to the age of the universe for this size group to reach the majority. Once that number grows above 10 percent, the idea spreads like flame.” People will begin the process of adapting to the new Google Glass technology over the next several years. This process of adapting will occur until it is fully accepted by society as the normal way of communicating. This follows the Diffusion of Innovation Theory which shows that as a product gains momentum it begins to spread through a social system and population. The product is accepted through 5 different groups of people with the end result being the product is adopted by society as a whole.
  6. 6. With today’s technology we are able to connect to one another from anywhere in the world. The touch of a button, the punch of your fingers, and at the request of Suri enables anyone to find the information they need without a second to spare. In 2024, Google Glass will become an everyday item people use to manage their lives. Instead of dialing or typing on a screen, the automated computer attached to a pair of glasses on your face will comprehend your every voice command and learn to anticipate your every need based on daily use, your set lifestyle and your occupation.
  7. 7. Google Glass will also affect more immediate needs such as the health care industry. “Google Glass changes our vision of healthcare and shortens this distance between the patient and caregiver. And it’s in that shortened distance and immediacy of response that awaits the potential opportunity to vastly improve care, and in the final analysis, save lives.”
  8. 8. The technology landscape of 2024 will include complete dependency upon Google Glass. This dependency correlates with the Media Systems Dependency Theory. This theory states that the more people depend upon media for everyday needs and the more important this media becomes, then the more effects the media will have on that person’s life.
  9. 9. Lastly, the Social media in the future will be effortless and everywhere. In ten years from now, filling out information once and then transferring it easily from place to place will be commonplace. Allowing immediate access to social media, internet and personal applications without reentering a password or answering multiple questions when the passwords are forgotten. OpenID is an open authentication protocol that lets users use a single set of login credentials for every site they visit. Along with OpenID technology each user will be implanted with a chip such as an RFID tag that will coincide with the OpenID technology to become the central authority to specifically identify each user. These RFID tags would be smart labels to hold all of your personal information and provide immediate identification regardless of the technology used.
  10. 10. This dependency upon immediate access with a OpenID/RFID technology correlates with the Uses and Gratification Theory. The Uses and Gratification Theory tries to understand why people seek media products for gratification. The theory states people seek technology to enhance knowledge, for social interaction and for diversion.
