Technologists can use technology to: Create new products or services. Take part in scientific research, including scientific analysis or sending a space probe to the moon. Solve global problems, including disease or food scarcity. Technologists can also use technology to improve our lives.
A good example of some of the types of technological development is the development of new tools for scientific research. New tools make it possible to collect, store and analyze data more efficiently and effectively. They also make it possible to distinguish between what is important and what isn’t. For example, new tools for space technology allow scientists to determine whether or not a satellite is being damaged or destroyed by harmful space radiation.
Technologists can solve problems by: Designing better ways to collect and transmit more accurate and up-to-date data. One example of this is the development of better information technology systems to collect, store and transmit more accurate and up-to-date data. The goal is to build better technological systems that can solve real-world problems. One example of this includes the invention of the printing press. Printing presses are now commonly used to reproduce large amounts of information. Another example includes the discovery of theneotropics, which is the study of plant life.
Neolithic man first used technological systems to gather information. He used his mind by means of pictographs, signs and arrowheads. As he discovered more complex life forms, his need for more complex technology also developed. As more sophisticated technological systems were developed, Neolithic man eventually became hunter-gatherer.
In the last two centuries, humankind has made significant technological progress. The ability to harness the power of the Sun, to drive automobile engines and to map the natural world on a computer chip technology has made real contributions to mankind’s well being. However, many problems still remain to be solved. Problems include issues of pollution, of overpopulation and of extraneous variables such as natural disasters.
Because a problem exists, a problem-solving process must occur, and the problem-solving process is dependent on three independent variables, namely, problem, demand and independent variable. If one of the independent variables decreases, then the demand for goods and services also decreases, and this will tend to reduce the overall economic activity and standard of living throughout society. When there is a surplus, i.e., when more goods and services are produced than is needed, the economy will flourish. This is the basic method of classical economics, the concept of economy, and it is an accurate reflection of the way society works.
