“Technology in the long-run is irrelevant”. That is what a customer of mine told me when I made a presentation to him about a new product. I had been talking about the product’s features and benefits and listed “state-of-the-art technology” or something to that effect, as one of them. That is when he made his statement. I realized later that he was correct, at least within the context of how I used “Technology” in my presentation. But I began thinking about whether he could be right in other contexts as well.
What is Technology?
Merriam-Webster defines it as:
a: the practical application of knowledge especially in a particular area: engineering 2 <medical technology>
b: a capability given by the practical application of knowledge <a car’s fuel-saving technology>
: a manner of accomplishing a task especially using technical processes, methods, or knowledge
: the specialized aspects of a particular field of endeavor <educational technology>
Wikipedia defines it as:
Technology (from Greek τÎχνη, techne, “art, skill, cunning of hand”; and -λογÎ¯α, -logia) is the making, modification, usage, and knowledge of tools, machines, techniques, crafts, systems, and methods of organization, in order to solve a problem, improve a preexisting solution
In the past few decades there has been a revolution in computing and communications, and all indications are that technological progress and use of information technology will continue at a rapid pace. Accompanying and supporting the dramatic increases in the power and use of new information technologies has been the declining cost of communications as a result of both technological improvements and increased competition. According to Moore’s law the processing power of microchips is doubling every 18 months. These advances present many significant opportunities but also pose major challenges. Today, innovations in information technology are having wide-ranging effects across numerous domains of society, and policy makers are acting on issues involving economic productivity, intellectual property rights, privacy protection, and affordability of and access to information. Choices made now will have long lasting consequences, and attention must be paid to their social and economic impacts.
One of the most significant outcomes of the progress of information technology is probably electronic commerce over the Internet, a new way of conducting business. Though only a few years old, it may radically alter economic activities and the social environment. Already, it affects such large sectors as communications, finance and retail trade and might expand
The effectiveness of technology use in the classroom has become a controversial issue. While many teachers and students feel that it’s best to use technology because it enhances teaching many others feel that it causes too many challenges and that it is a waste of time. If technology is as effective in the classroom as many teachers believe it to be; why do some students dislike it so much?
In order to objectively respond to this question, 3 articles were examined. 2 out of the 3 relate how the use of technology in the classroom frustrates students while the last one translates the thoughts of students who feel that technology in the classroom has responded to their need. So the issue is not that technology is not effective but rather that some teachers need to be mindful about technology use in the classroom and others need to be trained in order to properly use technology to teach so that students do not view technology as obstruction learning but as an enhancing tool.
After summarizing the 3 articles that have been reviewed we will be able to prove that there are 2 groups of students who claim to dislike technology in
As of late Microsoft originator Bill Gates shocked the world by expressing apply autonomy will be the biggest and most important industry internationally in only 20 years. At the present time, we’re seeing a massive uptick in the improvement and utilization of robots. These mechanical wonders are as of now assuming a significant job in the industry from the structure the modern autos to preparing lager. Soon this technology will invade homes to perform many of the tasks that now take up your evenings and days off.
Robotics combines the disciplines of electronics, engineering, mechanics, and software. This can be rather simple or incredibly complex. This presents a remarkable learning opportunity for students of all ages. There are now more than 15,000 children’s robotics teams spanning 50 countries. Similarly, most High Schools and Colleges have large clubs that do fantastic work. Their robots know no bounds and are often quite creative, accomplishing essential tasks in brilliant ways.
I’m especially looking forward to National Robotics Week on April 9-17. Each year this special week features more than 50 events and includes 46,000 people.
This year we’re seeing devices at MIT and other labs that can walk. While walking is natural to … Read more
Artificial intelligence can assist designers in architecture, engineering and construction industries. It helps with tedious, repetitive tasks and suggests possible viable outcomes for a new approach to design and development. This frees up the time of designers for more creative tasks, such as determining how to make a building more usable, sustainable, and energy-efficient.
Dynamic Software Tools That Learn And Adapt
Virtual companions are being developed for designers that not only suggest possible solutions but also learn as the designer chooses between recommended options. Static software tools are being replaced by dynamic ones that keep learning and adapting.
The system stores the actions taken by designers and creates rules about how to react in similar situations in the future. For example, if engineers were working on a proposed new bridge, AI systems could provide a case for how it should be constructed based on successful past projects.
A Circular Economy
Less variation is an important outcome of an AI-supported process. Designers may use different methods to solve challenges, and with AI, there would be fewer variations in the outcome. This would make the manufacturing of building parts more efficient and make the implementation of a circular economy possible.
It is very important to manage some time and relax amidst all the chaotic activities. All work and no play will turn any individual dumb.
