Many human beings are struggling to understand where technology fits into their lives. When it comes to time spent with technology, the tension between tech and humans is palpable. This research aims to understand where people can improve their interactions with technology – and better align those interactions with goals.

Research Advisory

iResearch Services worked with JP Morgan to develop a questionnaire addressing a set of hypotheses that shaped a clear end ‘story’. The questions investigated the extent to how HNWI’s spend their time around technology. Is technology preventing people from spending quality time with the people that matter most? Are they using technology in the most productive, rather than destructive, ways? At work? In financial life? On social media? The ultimate goal being to be able to understand where people can improve their interactions with technology - and better align those interactions with their respective goals.
