Summary / Abstract:

ENThe digitalization of the world as a result of the introduction of computers, chips, and modern information and communication technologies has undoubtedly been the most important technological development of the past few decades. Since computers were introduced in the 1960s, the emergence of automation in the 1970s, the development of the Internet in the 1980s and 1990s, and the current innovations in the field of (mobile) telecommunications, the widespread use of PCs has caused fears concerning job security, and that a segment of the population would miss the new opportunities, creating a (digital) division of society. These fears have caused some social and economic problems in Lithuania. [Publisher annotation]
