Alan Kay, a brilliant polymath who has worked at Atari, Xerox, Apple, and Disney, came up with as good a definition of technology as I’ve heard. Theoretical research within technology has come to be often indistinguishable from theoretical research in science, making engineering science largely continuous with ‘ordinary’ or ‘pure’ science. It is experience-based and involves the application of mathematics and science concepts in such techological systems as, but not limited to; construction, manufacturing, communications, transportation, biotechnology, and power and energy.
Considering the definition of health technology, as the application of organized knowledge and skills in the form of medicines, medical devices, vaccines, procedures and systems developed to solve a health problem and improve quality of life. A good example is, mobile phones companies like Apple & Samsung , these two electronics companies, use high end technology to create new smartphones and other electronic devices to stay competitive. There are at least five differentiating aspects of technology entrepreneurship in the definition proposed above. Entertainment Technology: This is a process of using various technological components to create an entertainment experience. Of necessity, the banking industry has developed its own definition of a blockchain, one that’s also suitable for enterprises generally.
Accordingly this necessitates a focus upon the interrelations between human-machine (Suchmann 2007), between technologies (Wallace 2010), between technological artefacts and working culture (Hasse 2011), and between sensing and technology (Søndergaard 2009).
The issue of how to allocate technology development resources among reference and alternative scenarios is a policy decision that should be explicitly addressed by DOE. A probing interview seeded with examples of technology may have garnered richer insight into the depths of student understanding. According to Bunge, theories in technology come in two types: substantive theories, which provide knowledge about the object of action, and operative theories, which are concerned with action itself.
A typical approach to technology assessment would be to consult with experts in a particular field to survey similar activities and experience. This adult gorilla uses a branch as a walking stick to gauge the water’s depth, an example of technology usage by non-human primates.
