KEY TOPICS

The nuances of context offer special challenges in building smart strategies for healthy technology use and in shifting our interactions with technology from toxic to measured and beneficial. [4] In engaging with technology, we should actively and consciously lean toward the contexts and uses in which we find the technology behavior to be largely beneficial and satisfying. [4] In almost every case with regard to our use of technology, the context matters. [4]

Does our interaction or use of the technology make us happy or unhappy? There are many derivatives of this question: Does it make us tense or relaxed? Does it make us anxious or calm? The answer may be “both,” and that is OK, but we should consider whether, on balance, an interaction leaves us with good or bad feelings. [4] We can efficiently analyze our interactions with technology, and evaluate their effects, through six questions. [4] With these negative influences in mind, we can propose a simple set of questions to ask ourselves in deciding how to create a more mindful and conscious engagement with our technology. [4] Regardless of the category, Block’s enumeration of the phenomenon’s negative influences is relevant to nearly any form of addiction or technology pathology. [4] Though simple, it’s an approach that any of us can make work, simply by asking ourselves relevant questions–and being honest about the feelings and other effects the technology raises in us. [4]

This example shows the importance of consciously designing the style of our engagement even with a technology application whose use is, by and large, positive. [4] On the left-hand side, list all the positive things and benefits that you feel this technology or technology-driven behavior brings you. [4]

You would be totally cut off from technology if you traveled to the Amazon, provided you came in without any technology of your own. 99% of the people who live in the Amazon are cut off from technology: everything from medical to communication technology. [1] I have spent months at a time with no technology whatsoever, sleeping in hammocks in the Amazon, and that’s still possible today. [1] In 1977, I went out to the middle of the Amazon, and the only technology I had was a cassette recorder. [1]

Where might one go, then, to get away from all that technology? People climbing the world’s highest peaks carry high-tech oxygen tanks and dress in ultra-fancy textiles; people navigating the furthest oceans travel in ships that talk to satellites soaring in the sky. [1] Ironically, the furthest one can get away from technology is not necessarily based on where they are but who they are–the result of conscious choices they or the societies/families they are within make. [1] Getting away from technology can be done safely and easily, just about anywhere one chooses, be it in the privacy of one’s home or in a quiet part of a public park. [1]

Though when we think of technology today, we often assume the Internet, social media, or mobile telephony, technologies are far more pervasive and universal than that–writing is a technology, the wheel is a technology. [1] One way to address the overall question of how a technology affects you is to go through the following exercise. [4] Our relationships with technology are similar: Each of us relates to technology in a unique, highly personal way. [4]

Everyone, from time to time–or at every single moment of every single day–wishes they could somehow escape technology. [1] If you?re living in the industrial world and want to get to a location where you cannot easily access technology, and where the inhabitants regularly live without it, you may have to travel. [1] Over the years, technology improved–by the “90s I was able to get a satellite phone that enabled me to call anyone in the world. [1] It also depends on age and gender: A farming family I visited had sons with cell phones that they charged at their uncle’s house on the main road, but their parents? most sophisticated technology were their agricultural implements. [1] When he visited again in 2016, Vivek found that the technology landscape had changed. [4]

A working definition of internet addiction serves as a useful lens through which to view most technology pathologies. [4] There is no defined category for technology addiction, but psychiatrists have been debating whether internet addiction is a real malady. [4]

This trip was less fraught with stress and uncertainty, thanks to modern technology. [4]

The mission of MIT Technology Review is to bring about better-informed and more conscious decisions about technology through authoritative, influential, and trustworthy journalism.

Whether it’s commercializing an innovative new technology to address a challenge or designing a roadmap for saving or focusing resources, we understand the systems, technologies, and context of the ever-evolving nature of energy production and use. [7] Katabi said doctors might use the technology to keep tabs on someone with Parkinson’s disease by watching for changes in gait that might indicate a looming problem. [2] Previous versions of the technology could detect a person’s silhouette behind a wall, but Katabi said this is the first time it’s been possible to closely track and identify people. [2]

The technology, which uses artificial intelligence to interpret radio wave data, grows out of earlier work by the same group. [2] We have developed mechanisms to block the use of the technology, and it anonymizes and encrypts the data.” [2]

Illinois Tech Vice Provost and Chief Information Officer Ophir Trigalo was recently selected as the 2018 CIO of the Year award honoree by The Executives? Club of Chicago, the Association of Information Technology Professionals, and the Society for Information Management Chicago. [10] Library professionals remain hopeful that technology will help moderate inequities in areas such as access to information, educational achievement and economic opportunity. [11] Edge provides an evaluation of a library’s technology offerings and generates recommendations to better align technology to users’ needs. Critically, it also provides resources and templates to help library employees better communicate the value of the services they provide. [11] Technology can be a great help here, given the variety of data-driven mapping tools now available to help shape precise community profiles. [11]

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), together with the grid operator TenneT, now studies the use of superconductor technology as an alternative. [12] Application of Science is a term defined current-day by the United States’ National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine as: “. any use of scientific knowledge for a specific purpose, whether to do more science; to design a product, process, or medical treatment; to develop a new technology; or to predict the impacts of human actions.” [5] The simplest form of technology is the development and use of basic tools. [5] Philosophical debates have arisen over the use of technology, with disagreements over whether technology improves the human condition or worsens it. [5]

[5] We will announce the fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy tech companies on November 15, 2018. [13] Technology (“science of craft”, from Greek ?????, techne, “art, skill, cunning of hand”; and -?????, -logia ) is first robustly defined by Jacob Bigelow in 1829 as: “. principles, processes, and nomenclatures of the more conspicuous arts, particularly those which involve applications of science, and which may be considered useful, by promoting the benefit of society, together with the emolument of those who pursue them”. [5]

Neo-Luddism, anarcho-primitivism, and similar reactionary movements criticize the pervasiveness of technology, arguing that it harms the environment and alienates people; proponents of ideologies such as transhumanism and techno-progressivism view continued technological progress as beneficial to society and the human condition. [5] Innovations have always influenced the values of a society and raised new questions of the ethics of technology. [5] If you are looking for fast-growing technology companies releasing new, emerging technologies, you have come to the right place! Representing industries from software to biotech, Fast 500 companies play in the SaaS, cloud computing, data analytics, and mobile sectors. [13] The Deloitte 2017 North America Technology Fast 500 winners underscore the impact of technological innovation and world-class customer service in driving growth in a fiercely competitive environment.
