About the Survey
“Generation AI 2020: Health, Wellness and Technology in a Post-COVID World” surveyed 2,000 parents, aged 24–39 years-old, with at least one child under 11 years old — 400 each in the United States, United Kingdom, India, China and Brazil. The surveys were conducted September 25 – October 6, 2020.
In truth the COVID-19 pandemic has forced many to endure a world where limited physical interaction has been necessary, which in turn has seen society turn to communicating and interacting via the Internet as the substitution for the various ways that we physically interact with each other. This affected our lives in so many ways, and many came to count on the Internet to help maintain some semblance of life as we have known it. Family gatherings were replaced with online get togethers. Streaming services provided relief to those individuals who couldn’t go out for social or entertainment purposes.Paul Nikolich
