A question which is increasingly being asked across the world is the overall influence of technology on society in general and the wider ramification’s overall. This is because the development of the smartphone as well as the computer has had a significant overall influence on society as a whole.
Why Is Technology Important?
There are a variety of different reasons as to why technology can be considered important overall. One of the main reasons why technology is so important is the way in which it can influence how we operate in society. Generally speaking technology in the past has been created with a clear purpose in mind and it has had a significant positive impact in most areas in which it has been developed.
For example the innovation of train and rail travel in the 19th Century Allowed goods to be moved significantly larger distances overall which was far more effective overall than older technology or transport methods such as horse and cart. Without this new technology being developed transport would be a lot more difficult overall for many people across the world. Trains provide a form of transport for billions of people around the world.
How Is Technology Changing Society?
There are many different ways through which technology is changing society overall. One of the main ways through which technology is changing society overall is the way in which it operates overall. For example increasingly society is finding solutions to common problems through the use of technology overall.
One of the most recent innovations that has been seen in the technology sector that is positively influencing society is electric vehicles also know as EV’s. This technology has been around for many years. However it has not been widely adopted up until this point.
There has been a surge in demand for electric vehicles across the world being driven by a drive to fight climate change overall. As a result companies such as Tesla have seen a significant overall boost in profits and sales overall as a result of this shift in attitudes overall.
What Kind Of Technology Is Being Developed?
There is a range of different types of technology that is being developed overall. One major area in which technology is moving rapidly is that of comfort and convenience. Increasingly, consumers around the world are looking for more and more convenient technology such as buttons that can order food online and features on cars such as cruise control . heated seats and artificial intelligence technology such as google assistant.
This has unfortunately led to less overall innovation in arguably more important areas such as transport or research into new forms of computing / AI. Overall it can be stated that there has been a sizeable shift in attitude in recent years from innovation in transport and medical research to catering for more convenience based features.
Overall in the future it can be concluded that we might once again see a resurgence in overall useful and productive technologies that benefit the wider world overall.
