This page is intended to reflect the impact of technology on people and society. Tools that people use gradually change their behavior; Man gradually adapts to the instrument and reinvents it. Technological evolution is related to human evolution.
Thanks to these evolutions, our society is developing. It is interesting to compare the world as it is today, with the world as it will be in 30 years. Since technology has always changed our use and our daily lives, what can we imagine for the future? What innovations will underlie new changes in our society? Will we be ready to accept them?
In an attempt to answer these questions, we will summarize our relationship with technology. We will see that technology goes through several stages of adoption: it all starts when a person presents technology; it remains pure for his imagination, therefore it is not real. We will explain how we move from this first stage of imagination to the stage of naturalization, which relates to technologies that are no longer regarded as technologies, but as natural elements (for example, ink or letters).
Technological tools have revolutionized our daily tasks so much that we could hardly go back. So, are we dependent on these tools? Man is the inventor of these tools, but is he not overwhelmed by his inventions? We will analyze this idea about the interdependence of man and technology, about the symbiosis between the inventor and the invention. Given that what separates a person from a machine becomes more and more confused, it is increasingly difficult to distinguish what was done by a person from what was done by a machine. We conducted a survey for you about the craziest technologies created today. We introduced you to these inventions and their incredible use in order to collect your opinion on the problem: what will be the technologies of tomorrow and how will we use them?
Benefits of technological innovations. Technology and its development, defined as an instrument, has been a part of our life for several decades and allows people to improve their lifestyle and ease their daily tasks.
Understanding and using the tool allowed people to think about a new use. Take the wheel example. This system was invented after an icon was discovered which depicts a carriage on 4 wheels, which facilitates its transportation. Making the wheel revolutionized the world. This is a circular part that rotates around an axis passing through its center, which facilitates the advancement of plows. This significantly changed vehicles and allowed the development of new methods and technologies, such as windmills or windmills.
The wheel for transporting plows has been improved, recycled, suitable for cars, trains. Since then, new vehicles have been created using the same wheel system: bicycle, skateboard, roller skates, chairs, lawn mowers and even more recently, hoverboards. The technology is developing, the wheel is no longer made of wood, its size and material differ depending on the innovations, but the principle remains the same. It is important to emphasize the fact that one wheel is used today in many different devices and applications.
Tools that changed our behavior and our daily lives Our daily lives were shocked by technology; The implementation of our daily activities and tasks is different between yesterday and today. Some are even “suppressed,” that is, we don’t need to worry about this, since they are completely made by robotic machines.
Technological outbreak. For many years, we took time to shop in supermarkets. Now we can optimize it using automatic cash registers that have been installed in our supermarkets since 2004. When they left, some customers were immune, but today these boxes are democratized and used daily. However, many of us still prefer the classic cash register to give preference to human contact.
The automotive sector, which has been constantly evolving since its inception (and before that since the creation of the wheel), is in full swing with the invention of autonomous cars that are currently in production. It is unthinkable a few years ago, and yet we are here: machines lead a Man from point A to point B, combining a number of rules and complex algorithms that allow for complete control. Some difficulties were quickly identified at the stages of field testing, such as environmental diversity. The roads are heterogeneous, especially outside the freeways, and require concentration and adaptability, accessible to humans, but they are difficult to reproduce in an automated program.
