Abstract: Human society is now directly linked to digitized technologies, creating a “robotic effect†for the future of society. People and technology are connected directly and permanently. Scientific discoveries have influenced society and progress over the years, and examples include the discovery of fire, the invention and development of vaccines and antibiotics that have allowed people to reduce their mortality rates significantly in the eighteenth century. Another example of scientific progress is the use of fossil fuels, electricity, fertilizers, etc. These discoveries / researches / inventions have changed the way people live. More at this moment, we are witnessing technological breakthroughs (blockchain technology) in the virtual space with implications for everything that exists, from education, industry, services, finance, research and continuing at the societal level.
