The study conducted by Chinese technology giant Lenovo, shows a growing relationship between technological innovation and wellbeing.

"In India, we are seeing increasing adoption of AI-enabled smart home devices ushering in a new era of smart living. We have recently introduced our smart home portfolio with the launch of innovative products like Smart Clock and Smart Display with Google Assistant," said Rahul Agarwal, CEO & MD, Lenovo India.

"It's a huge step forward for Lenovo in India as it marks our foray into the IoT and new age devices," he added.

The research, which surveyed over 15,000 individuals from around the globe, including the US, Mexico, Brazil, China, India, Japan, UK, Germany, France and Italy, found that 40 percent of global respondents feel "a lot" or "somewhat" more youthful thanks to technology.

The survey probed respondents on how they view the role of technology in their lives and in society, both today and in the future.

In India, where most of the workforce stays away from family and close relatives, 85 percent respondents feel that technology is improving their ability to stay in touch with family and friends who live far away, as compared to 75 percent global respondents.

The study also found that 66 percent of the Indian respondents said technology made them feel more youthful.

Similarly, 81 percent of respondents in India agreed that smart devices, such as computers and smart home devices like smart displays and smart clocks, are making them more productive and efficient.

The research generally revealed that many older generations think using technology helps them to connect better with younger people as well as feel livelier and more knowledgeable.

It is also helping to build connections between generations, especially those who might have once felt disconnected from tech-savvy youngsters.

While 67 percent of the global respondents believe that technology has a positive impact on the ability to improve their overall health, in India, as high as 91 percent of the respondents feel technology has had a positive impact, helping them live a healthier lifestyle, the study said.
