MUMBAI: Isobar, a leading global digital agency from Dentsu Aegis Network, today releases ‘Augmented Humanity: Isobar Trends Report 2019, an exploration of five digital trends for 2019. The report explores the extent to which humanity will work in harmony with technology to expand and enrich life in 2019, and is available to download at isobar.com.

Written by the innovation and strategy experts across Isobar’s 85 offices in 45 markets, the report builds on the concept of Augmented Humanity, developed by Isobar in 2018.   The 2019 trends report explores the changing nature of the human relationship with technology: from how we work and play, to how we travel, shop, spend our leisure time and engage with brands.

The report is centered around a belief that technology augments our experience of the world, allowing us to work more efficiently, to live healthier lifestyles, to make better human decisions and to expand our creativity.  It explains why Isobar believes that this is an important moment in human history, outlines some of the myriad opportunities that these technological developments open up and shines a light on some of the challenges posed by digital disruption.

Isobar’s five key trends for 2019 are:

1) The evolving interface - How the intersection between humans and technology is changing

2) The human algorithm - How data can help us to better understand ourselves and enable better decisions

3) The fluid vs the collective self - How the digital world enhances personal and collective experiences

4) The trust paradox - How technology can help – or hinder – our understanding of the increasingly complex world around us

5) The transformed experience - How Augmented Humanity enables us to feel and experience the world differently and in deeper ways

The annual report provides guidance on navigating this new landscape to keep businesses and brands ahead of the curve for 2019 and beyond. Each chapter outlines why these developments are important, key examples of the trends in action, why businesses need to be aware of them, and how they can take advantage of their positive potential.  

Jean Lin, Isobar’s Global CEO, said, “Technology today plays a key role in driving relevance, scale, and elevating human experiences. It is our job to harness its wonderful power and the potential for businesses and brands, in serving people better in the age of Augmented Humanity.”

Commenting on the launch, Shamsuddin Jasani, Group Managing Director, Isobar South Asia states, “We need to embrace the power of technology. Today, we are on the edge of an augmented age where technology is redefining the possibilities of what a human can truly be capable of. This next phase of transformational technological advances, wearable and embedded devices will unlock human potential by tapping into almost all our day to day activities. In 2019, we shall see how digital is going to be omnipresent and VOICE will be the biggest game changer in the field of marketing.”
