Integrated circuit, computers, internet... All of these things built on previous work, and changed the way humans interact with our environment.

What's next?

Voice recognition tech? Maybe?

Siri, Alexa, Google, and now Dish networks all rely on voice commands to accomplish tasks.

How many students today use mental math skills and or writing and spelling skills vs relying on calculators and spell check.

We know how Siri, Alexa, and Google are changing people's interaction with music and searching the internet, and voice recognition with a maps app and SMS.

I'm writing this sentence in this post in this message board using the microphone voice to text function on my phone.

Will the ability to ask answers from some voice recognition tech further reduce human abilities? Is keyboarding at risk? Conversion of text to audio and vice versa suggest reading and writing skills may further diminish?

I don't see a way to invest, because the voice recognition tech is decentralized, but I do think this is a macro economic trend.
