The world wide web is no longer about people, it's 42% of the time about computers talking to computers.
Sometimes the data of big players like Cloudflare is interesting: According to the Internet Radar dashboard about 42% of the traffic they see is automated, as not requested by a browser. From my own experience with ecommerce you usually have 60%+ of automated traffic. Though you've to be a bit careful with those numbers. For example Cloudflare classifies MITM devices intercepting TLS 1.3 as bots. While technically it's correct, it's not a browser connecting, there is still a human with a browser behind it. But in general the amount of stupid automated traffic heating up our planet is crazy. And this is still counting without DoS attack traffic.
