The relevance of the chosen topic of the article is due to globalization processes in various spheres of society, their convergence, emergence and spread of the Internet in the world, which led to a qualitatively new stage of world development – comprehensive digitalization of economy, politics, public administration, finance, education, culture, medicine and other spheres of society. The «digital transformation» took on the characteristics of the fourth industrial revolution. Technical innovations determine the pace of development of modern society. Civilizational changes in the field of digitalization are so revolutionary, profound that the world cannot be imagined without the Internet of Things, robotics, artificial intelligence, big data creation, paperless technologies, 3D printing, cloud and fog computing, unmanned, mobile, biometric technologies and others. Modern civilization and technological changes form certain features of phylogenetic human development: first, the development of technology leads to changes in human consciousness, «formed» «digital human» - Homo digitalis, with a different mindset, worldview, access to real-time knowledge, which thanks to artificial intelligence and robotics implements and solves much more complex economic, managerial, educational, aesthetic, elite, creative projects and tasks, changing the axiological foundations of life. Secondly, in digital life man not only gets new opportunities for creativity, but also faces the threats of his own existence, due to the results of his technical-rationalist activity, which ignores the basic foundations of the human race and offers constructions of a special human world – artificial virtual reality. interpersonal cognition is lost, «there is a complete separation of man from the ground» (K. Jaspers). In the digital space, man is a participant in everything that happens in the techno-united and interconnected world created by globalization. Digitalization is the development, implementation and dissemination of the latest digital technologies in all spheres of modern life in the context of globalization, characterized by the achievements of Google, Amazon, Apple, IMB, Microsoft, Facebook in the US, Alibaba and Tencent in China. Ukraine is actively implementing a digitalization policy. Its implementation will accelerate the processes of digital transformation in Ukraine, increase the level of digital skills and digital competencies in society, increase the competitiveness of employees, increase the level of accessibility to public services for citizens, significantly reduce the risks of hazards when using the Internet. Global problems have united the entire universe in front of the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The analysis of the scientific literature gives grounds to claim that various most relevant aspects of globalization, its transformation and the role of human in it are reflected in scientific articles and monographs of Ukrainian scientists – V. Lyakh, V. Voronkova, V. Lukianets, O. Kravchenko, L. Ozadovska , R. Samchuk, V. Pazenyuk, K. Raida and others, as well as the works of Western scholars such as K. Schwab, K. Skinner, E. Giddens, D. Geld and others.
