Top 10 Reasons Why Technology Changes the World

“Technology slowly takes over the tasks of humans with its functions. Technology is known to make everything better, faster and easier. Thanks to the people who endlessly upgrade technology. In my opinion, it changes the world in a sense that everywhere we go there are tons of technology found. In anything we do, we make use of technology. Even the simplest tasks, there is a touch of technology and even our most confidential information is kept with the use of technology. Therefore, it has been changing the world with its functions that some of us might not notice because we are too focused on its advantages.”

Robert Johnson, Founder Sawinery

Technology in Art

“The general population, libraries, and galleries are all using technologies in areas that would have been utterly impossible just thirty years ago. Technology is being used by the public to understand and engage with art. Museums also maintain multimedia collections, have online tours of their facilities, distribute special exhibit media, and sell their activities to online viewers. Galleries use the internet to not only promote their activities, but also to sell some of their pieces, find new talent, and preview an artist’s collection. Artists can advertise themselves individually, build a loyal fanbase for their work, and sell their work online without the help of a middleman agent or gallery owner. Technology may also be used by artists as a modern tool for creating art. Consumers will learn about emerging talent and stay up to date with their favorite artists’ latest and greatest achievements.”

Education

“I believe that education has changed a lot as a result of technological advancements. The reality is that it has been shifting for quite some time. Students have been able to take online classes for years, but technological advancements have made it much easier. Even younger students can benefit from online courses, and they can do so more efficiently by using resources such as video chats and captured videos that they can watch as per their convenience. It’s clear to see how education can continue to shift from the classroom to the internet in the future.”

Money

“I, in fact, all of us have noticed that money is being used in different ways nowadays. Thanks to technology, an increasing number of people no longer carry currency. Debit and credit cards are used by the majority of citizens. People can check their balance on a website or via an app without ever having to touch cash. Digital money is here to stay, and it’s quickly gaining traction. There’s also cryptocurrency, which is a non-national currency. It’s impossible to predict what will happen as a result of cryptocurrencies, but it’s intriguing enough to keep an eye on.”

Communication

“Since it has provided people the opportunity to connect with others in a variety of ways, smartphones have become the most visible technology that has changed lives. People can communicate via email or text. You obviously can still call, but you now have the option to video chat as well. When you’re speaking, you can see each other. This has made it easier for people to keep in touch with one another, which is a positive thing for all. But, you would need to connect to the internet to do so.”

Automated Systems

“When a machine or other type of technology performs a task without the help of humans, this is known as automation. You do not know how much you use automation. It may be anything as basic as a coffee maker or a thermostat. You have full control over how everything is done, but the machinery does it. When looking into the future, it is often seen as a negative. Many people believe that robots and machines will take over the world and eliminate their work. When a lawyer doesn’t have to continuously sift through data and legal questions trying to find one case, for example, they can concentrate on other facets of the case, such as coming up with imaginative ways to defend it. Artificial Intelligence can handle facts and fact-checking because there is no emotional component to it, and it can also be tedious at times. When your lawyer should be speaking with you and finding out how to win your case, the last thing you want is for them to be lost in paperwork.”

Comfort

“The need for comfort has propelled technology forward. Of course, people invest in technology for a variety of purposes, but the need for convenience is a powerful motivator. Custom electric radiant floor heating systems are a strong example of how technology can make people feel more at ease. These devices are placed underneath your home’s floors and allow you to feel the warmth radiating beneath your toes as you walk around. Imagine how toasty you’ll be on those colder days.”

Sasha Quail, Business Development Manager of Claims UK

Good Health

“Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are expected to be almost non-existent by 2025. Cancer therapies will have fewer and less debilitating side effects, and type 1 diabetes will be entirely preventable by then (due to human genome engineering). They’ve also begun to be able to predict which diseases and health conditions people are at risk for based on the results of a few simple studies. Questions about scary illnesses that have been unidentified as to what causes them and what the solution is will be addressed as technology advances in the health industry.”

Eric McGee, Senior Network Engineer, TRGDatacenters

Smartwatches

“Mobile phones and computers are no longer the only means of communication. Tablets, voice assistants, smartwatches, and other devices will also send messages. The smartwatch is a relatively new technology that combines nearly all of the features of smartphones into a wearable touch-screen watch. You can use these wearable devices to receive alerts, monitor your activity, set alarms, and even call and text. Smartwatches may also be used to communicate with first responders in an emergency. Medical warning companies have collaborated with smartwatch developers or developed patented technology to give seniors the peace of mind of a medical alert on their wrist. Many of the same features as a traditional smartwatch, such as activity monitoring and personal messaging, are included in these watches.”

Tanya Zhang, Co-founder of Nimble Made

Travel

“Technology has changed the way people travel. This has occurred on both small and large scales. For example, you can summon a car to take you wherever you want to go by pressing a few buttons. People with cars can now communicate with people who need a ride using ridesharing apps. You can also use home-sharing apps to communicate with ordinary people who are willing to rent you a room or a sofa if you’re going to be traveling a long distance. You’ll almost certainly get a good deal, particularly when compared to local hotels and motels.”

William Munir, CEO Grooming HUT

“The days of waiting in line for tickets are long gone. There will be no more bargain hunting on the phone with the travel agent. Travel has forever changed as a result of the internet. You can study your destination and obtain the details you need by going online. Every piece of travel information is available, from where to stay to what to wear. You can now track a flight, train, or car, use GPS to locate a location, book and cancel tickets online, and schedule your trip down to the minute.”

Stewart McGrenary, Director at Freedom Mobiles

Technology making the world more complex, yet also easier

“Technology truly has helped the world become a more diverse and complex place, and without it, we would have not made the advances we have in many sectors. The vaccines would not have been able to have been distributed as they are, communication between loved ones would have been lost, and so much more. Technology has also allowed for medical and technological advances to happen, that makes life just a little bit easier. We have the problems of social media, but it has helped so many people too.’

Salinder Kohli, Lead Developer Coffeeble

Technology has always been revolutionizing the world, but now more than ever. The technological advancements already on the rapid rise have been even further propelled by the COVID-19 pandemic, introducing new technologies and propagating the adoption of many technologies. How these technologies affect the world around us depends on how we choose to use them.
