Technology made large populations possible; large populations now make technology indispensable. - Joseph Krutch (Writer)
Technology is often a consequence of science and engineering, aimed to exploit natural phenomena for practical human purposes, transforming matter, energy or information. scientific knowledge as we know it today has given birth to all modern technology with its:
- basic tools
- technology systems
which are used for practical purposes, the production of goods or services, scientific investigation, defense and security or space exploration.
“Technology and robotics are advancing and will reduce the need for workers in the future.” -Jan C. Ting ( Professor of Law - Temple University in Philadelphia)
Technology is anything that wasn’t around when you were born. - Alan Kay (Computer Scientist)
Modern technology can be broken down as follows:
- Communication-or Bio-technologies
“The internet is no longer a web that we connect to. Instead, it’s a computerized, networked, and interconnected world that we live in. This is the future, and what we’re calling the Internet of Things.” -Bruce Schneier (Security technologist and Author)
Any sufficiently advanced technology is equivalent to magic. - Arthur C. Clarke (Author)
And there are general-purpose technologies as
- The internet
- Steam Engine
- Language Writing
- Digital Technologies
- emerging technologies
- All are topped by machine intelligence, or real AI, Robotics and Intelligent Automation.
Real AI is emerging as a fundamental GPT, drastically changing societies through its disruptive impact on pre-existing political, economic and social structures, being the basis for 4–6 Industrial Revolutions.
“Some people call this artificial intelligence, but the reality is this technology will enhance us. So instead of artificial intelligence, I think we’ll augment our intelligence. “ - Ginni Rometty - (CEO of IBM)

Technology is the perfect leverage.-Leverage: To use something to maximize my advantage over others.
The technology of war may be divided into five categories. Offensive arms harm the enemy and Defensive weapons ward off offensive blows.
Five Categories of Technology of war:
- Transportation technology
- moves soldiers and weaponry
- communications coordinate
- The movements of armed forces
- sensors detect forces and guide weaponry.
The development of weapons-nuclear weapons
Manufacturing of cars-automobiles
Technology is created with the purpose to disrupt others advantage over you and eventually win the game.
This is our human nature and instinct of survival. Whether it’s in war, business, our jobs or our everyday lives.
In today’s world, if you have zero leverage you are at the bottom of the food chain and sadly the consequence is poverty.
“The AI does not hate you, nor does it love you, but you are made out of atoms which it can use for something else.” Eliezer Yudkowsky- (Co- Founder -Machine Intelligence Research Institute)
The future of modern warfare: How technology is transforming conflict | DW Analysis
Technology affects almost every aspect of 21st century life
from transport efficiency and safety, to access to food and healthcare, socialization and productivity
Technology has had a huge impact on all our daily lives, from social media to work - we look at the areas most hit.
- The water supply that provides households with the means to flush toilets
- The electric appliances used in the kitchens
- The network that feeds data into mobile phones
- The traffic lights.
- The morning newspaper is an epitome of information technology
"I do not fear computers. I fear lack of them." — Isaac Asimov
Technology is easily accessible , in the Era of technology there is no excuse for remaining ignorant. Information is at the tip of our figures. People move around with entire libraries. Technology has made it relatively easy for people to learn anything they want, anytime they want .
“If you control the code, you control the world. This is the future that awaits us.” Marc Goodman- ( Global Security Advisor & Futurist)
5 Technology Impacts in Your Daily Life | Impact of Technology in our Daily Life
There are many advantages to learning technology, and some of the most notable include:
The significance of technology in communication:
Much of the routine work in offices such as
- recording information
- writing and sending Messages
- gathering and analysing data has been taken over by machines.
These functions can now be performed more quickly, more accurately and more efficiently and the time thus saved can be used for more challenging and simulating tasks.
Every second the networks formed by
- telex printers
- radio stations
- and satellite
- links transmit millions of messages from one place to another.
We have to stop optimizing for programmers and start optimizing for users." — Jeff Atwood
The main advantages of technology in communication processes are:-
- Manual writing or traditional type writing has been replaced by devices capable of producing neater and more legible document at a faster pace.
- Automation has reduced the incidence of error and the chances of fraud which has led to an increase in output.
- The routine in clerical work in handling and manipulating data has been considerably diminished.
- In case of speeches and dialogues, the new technologies of speakers and microphones have added the reach to tremendous civilians.
Has increased the reach pace of the information to audience.
War is the ultimate realization of modern technology.-Don DeLillo
