The world is rapidly changing. In other words, advancement in technology has made the world to look like a small village for human populace. In fact, advancements in technology have shown a significant growth in almost every field, may it be automobiles, communication systems, astronomy, bio-electronics, computers, security, architectural designs or business. Actually, the technological advancements have revamped almost all aspects of human life. For example, technology advancement has led to development of radio wave communication systems which are used in mobile communications, the satellite systems used in international communication, semiconductor devices which are used in calculators, supercomputers and other related high-end devices.
Lastly, computers benefit children with special needs in the school system. Computers have proven extremely beneficial to students with certain speech, audio, and motor limitations. Students with special needs can use alternative input and output devices to interact with computers and do things that they normally could not accomplish independently. What they can do through using a computer boosts their self-esteem and provides them with a greater sense of control with the world around them and their own individual lives. The Internet- or the information highway — provides them with the best of knowledge for their treatments and they can keep in touch with doctors or friends through out the world with the Internet. () Computer technology will continue to assist special needs students far into the future.
Technological advancement plays a very important role in determining the success of any company. Improvement is due not only to technology, but also to how it is integrated in the organization. A strategy needs to be prepared so as to how the work should go on. Successful businesses understand the need to continuously improve their business processes: to become more efficient and productive, and to respond to market changes faster while providing better service to customers. Technology acquisition and innovation plays a pivotal role in an organizationâs successful, competitive behaviour.
The German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk provides a second illustration. He maintains that the influence of the Enlightenment in shaping humankind has not gone far enough and actually cannot do so. Human formation needs to be augmented with technological innovation. Developments in the area of genetic manipulation make that possible, and Sloterdijk is convinced that we should move in that direction.
During the Golden Quarter, we saw a boom in public spending on research and innovation. The taxpayers of Europe, the US and elsewhere replaced the great 19th‑century venture capitalists. And so we find that nearly all the advances of this period came either from tax-funded universities or from popular movements. The first electronic computers came not from the labs of IBM but from the universities of Manchester and Pennsylvania. (Even the 19th-century analytical engine of Charles Babbage was directly funded by the British government.) The early internet came out of the University of California, not Bell or Xerox. Later on, the world wide web arose not from Apple or Microsoft but from CERN, a wholly public institution. In short, the great advances in medicine, materials, aviation and spaceflight were nearly all pump-primed by public investment. But since the 1970s, an assumption has been made that the private sector is the best place to innovate.
