Everything in everyday life is now linked to its smartphone, from the richest neighborhoods of the world on the 5th Avenue in Manhattan to the world’s most deprived areas. Any business that wants to stay alive takes this into account. The smarphone was once a “startup” that became omnipotent. Today it dominates everywhere and changes the world, forming the basis for creating thousands of new startups on the market, as a mobile communications executive found in Paris for the presentation of Huawei’s new smartphones.
The enormous interest in the developments in the smart mobile market and the international competition that is under way is also confirmed by the large number of press representatives found in Paris – more than 2,000 from every corner of the world – to attend the presentation of its new models Huawei.
But from this huge “power” the smartphone can radically change the world we have known to date and bring about strenuous changes, many of which are already visible in everyday life as well as in our business world and in our country?
Typically, there are some aggregated official figures that have seen the spotlight on mobile penetration and its applications to the global population, as well as the potential of new technologies that show only a small picture of developments and enormous dynamics has the smartphone:
Mobile phone subscribers will grow to 5.8 billion in 2025, from 5.1 billion last year at international level, according to estimates by GSMA Intelligence representing the digital communications industry. The highest penetration rate will be in Europe where almost all of its residents, nine out of ten citizens, will be subscribers to mobile telephony, with eight out of ten having access to the internet from their mobile phone, meaning smart phones
Five billion people will make use of the Internet from their mobile phone by 2025, a figure that exceeds 60% of the world’s population, according to GSMA analysts’ estimates released at the latest Mobile WorldCongress in Barcelona. Today, around three billion people already use the internet through their mobile phone.
Smartphone owners will communicate through their mobile phones 65 times a day in 2023, which means that this percentage will be increased by 20% compared to today (Deloitte study)
50% of TV and video watching will be on mobile monitor screens, such as tablets, smartphones and laptops, an increase of 85% compared to 2010, while only smartphones will account for a quarter of this tracking (an increase of 160 % compared to 2010), according to a Consumer Lab report released by Ericsson
The Internet of Things – Internet and Things – will connect more than 50 billion devices to the Internet and the mobile phone by 2020, creating the conditions for radical changes in our everyday life and business. Thus, the terms “smart” car, “smart” home, “smart” city and hundreds of more are being heard, offering more and more applications, most of which are technological startups.
The pervasiveness IoT connected critically when time is ready for commercial application on a large scale to 5G, the new generation of mobile communications networks, which have surprising possibilities with respect to the current networks: 10-100 fold increased data rate, handling up to 1,000 times more data volume, servicing 100 times more low cost devices, battery life of connected devices of 10 years and over, and significantly improved 20db coverage. These amazing performances will allow the interconnection, in real time, of hundreds of millions of machines, not just to each other, but also to mobile telephony.
The contribution to global GNP of the mobile ecosystem is 4.6% today ($ 3.9 trillion) and will increase further to 4.8 trillion. dollars. The direct jobs that the ecosystem gives is 14 million and an additional 17 million indirect jobs.
We are now in the age when mobile is rapidly becoming a digital partner of a human being. With the incorporation of new technologies, mobile gradually learns the owner’s daily schedule and habits, even the secrets that perhaps not even the closest people know, with the result not only of reminding him but also of the ability to make suggestions to it, pointed out typical executives who are involved in technological developments.
The fact of developing the Internet of Things (IoT) plays a decisive role in the emergence of the mobile phone in an all-powerful device. From the mobile phone, it is now possible to control from a distance of billions of devices of any size and to carry out hundreds of tasks and transactions that until now required a purely physical presence.
But how does the cell phone become a partner of its owner?
By incorporating Artificial Intelligence (artificial intelligence) or AI (artificial intelligence) technology into operation. Artificial intelligence algorithms are and will be found almost everywhere, from buying a product, watching a movie and digital personal assistants, up to robots, stand-alone vehicles, and diagnoses of diseases and illnesses. As stated in the White Paper “Mobile AI and the Future of Intelligent Devices,” developed by IDC analyst firm and funded by Huawei, artificial intelligence “will become a symbol, just as the locomotive at the start of the Industrial Revolution.”
The platform that will benefit most from artificial intelligence penetration is smartphones as it already greatly improves personal helper applications, thus enhancing the overall smartphone experience.
Digital personal assistants have the ability, for example, to recognize the title of the movie appearing in a photograph of an outdoor advertisement, find the movies being played and close tickets based on the user’s calendar, asking the latter for an approval .
A possible combination of systems, facial recognition and machine learning based on artificial intelligence could, for example, enable stores to recognize their customers, offer them advice and ideas when shopping, and give them facilitating payment and receipt of their orders with fully automated, autonomous functions without the slightest human intervention, such as a mobile phone.
This new generation of applications will be able to leverage e-commerce, dramatically boosting consumer experience.
However, this rapid growth in mobile penetration, along with the growth of IoT that creates the interconnected world, radically changes the way we have done our day-to-day transactions, many more business and business in general.
For example, in the field of trade, as stated by a Visa Europe executive officer, Bill Gajda, already in cities like London, one can make all its daily payments, digitally via its mobile phone, without the use of no cash or even plastic money.
Control devices from mobile
Everything is already affected and gradually connected to the mobile phone, from refrigerators, washing machines, kitchens, air conditioners, cafes, fire protection systems, alarm systems, heating, water and electricity meters, drones, etc., all being “smart”.
Everything can be controlled by the mobile phone, from the crops in the field of the farmer, which can be monitored and organized by the mobile phone, the orders, the handling and in general the transport of the products of every kind of business in the industry, in retail, in shipping, up to traffic on the streets, at ports in airports.
The era where the mobile phone will develop into an omnipotent means has already begun and is now irreversibly changing the lifestyle we knew until a few years ago.
So they change everything and very fast, focusing on the mobile phone. They change professions, abolish some, come new, change the education system, radically change the business, change human communication, human behaviors even more.
The feeling remains.
Will it be implemented to protect it?
