Improving lives

Technology for good

Connectivity improves lives every day – from using our smartphone to navigate across town, to providing financial services to those without traditional banking. But in the future, it will mean so much more – from democratized access to healthcare and wearables that avoid illness; to connectivity for all schools and experiential learning in virtual worlds; and even the augmentation of human abilities. Ericsson, working with others, will make this happen!
