5 Types of Businesses That Are Changing the World


Various businesses and industries are responsible for shaping the modern era in which we live. While technology and lives have changed drastically over the past few decades, a few businesses are looking to once again revolutionize lives for the masses. 5 types of businesses, in particular, are changing the world in which we live. From bringing artificial intelligence into the home, providing new ways to connect with others, and doctors at the push of a button, these industries are breaking the mold. Ideas once thought to be fiction are beginning to look like the face of the future.


  1. Artificial Intelligence

There's little doubt about how AI companies are changing the world. Once thought a figment of science-fiction, artificial intelligence is a component of many “smart” devices today. From phones, speakers, to cars, artificial intelligence affects nearly everyone. In addition, AI companies are also improving healthcare, education fields, and military techniques. Artificial intelligence is consistently changing the world by turning fiction into reality.


  1. Clean Energy

Cleaner and more sustainable energy have long been hailed as the path of the future. However, the switch to clean energy from fossil fuels has not always been a clear path. But with the recent development of new energy-storing technology, this may no longer be the case. With the improvements made in the industry, energy derived from more sustainable sources may now be stored longer than what was once possible. This new ability can drastically cut down on the amount of infrastructure necessary to produce clean energy. Leaving many to wonder, why are we waiting? The final switch to sustainable energy would be transformative and hopefully not so far away.


  1. Social Media

Social media is often characterized as a villain or a viable way of connecting with others. No matter your stance, social media platforms have revolutionized the way we connect. Various social media moguls are also changing the way that many people learn information, remain updated on current events, and even how companies select job candidates. For better or for worse, social media is changing how the world interacts.


  1. Streaming Services

Streaming services are changing not only the entertainment industry but the world. Content is more accessible than ever. Whether used for pure entertainment, to learn a new language, or to find a variety of viewpoints on current events, streaming services have taken the world by storm. Many traditional entertainment providers have been blindsided by the wild success of streaming services. Other providers have looked to adapt to the new age of streaming and are attempting to provide their own competitive services.


  1. Virtual Healthcare

Medicinal practices have improved drastically over the years. Practices today are significantly more advanced than the medical practices of the 1980s or even 90s. However, until recently, one facet of medicine has failed to evolve with the times, how patients are evaluated. For years, if a patient is sick, he or she must make the dreaded trip into a doctor’s office to be evaluated and treated. However, with advancements in technology, the telemedicine industry is beginning to limit the number of in-patient visits to doctor’s offices. From remote test kits for various conditions to video conferences with doctors for minor illnesses and checkups, virtual healthcare is changing how the world approaches medicine.


These five industries are changing the world at a rapid rate. From emerging solutions in healthcare to more viable energy sources, each industry is transformative in different ways. Only one question remains, what will tomorrow be like?
