Stereotypes don’t last long in technology, least of all those about digital natives. If you thought millennials (those between 18 and 24 years) can’t have enough of technology, think again. A global online survey by Penn Schoen Berland, and commissioned by chipmaker Intel Corp, has found that millennials are the least enthusiastic about technology today, even though they are optimistic about a more personalised digital experience in future. WOMEN CARRY THE TORCH
- Globally, women more than 45 are more likely than younger women to advocate technology, say we don’t use it enough and believe it contributes to a country’s well-being.
- 77% percent of Indian women (the highest among those surveyed) think technology makes us more human, compared to 45% of respondents globally.
- 67% of Indian women over 45 agree with the statement “I like to keep up with technological advancements and always have the newest devices” compared to 9% of French women and 11% of American women.
- Women in India believe technology will drive better education (54%), transportation (50%), work (42%) and health care (42%).
