Adaptive Technology

. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. I think it’s impacted the workplace rather positively since technology is designed to make work easier to conduct. A few examples. . + Typing on a computer instead of typing on a typewriter. + My company uses software that allows records to stay stashed on a computer allievating the need for file cabinets and print-outs. + Research via the net instead of having the company keep a library or several different sets of encyclopedias.


Aerospace Technology

Hi yar. . This is sarath,now doing Aerospace technology in anna university(MIT-Campus). this semester we ve two specialization to proceed further 1) Launching technology (specially for Mech stream) 2) Satellite technology (specially for electronic stream) syllabus are formed with ISRO guidance syllabus as follows: satellite tech- (Elements of satellite, satellite communication,spacecraft power system, Rocketry&space mech, spacecraft navigation systems, mathematical modelling & simulation) launching tech- ( CFD, Launch vehicle Aerodynamic , missile guidance &control, finite element method, composite material & struct. Rocketry & space launch vehicle) we are from electronic stream in UG(B. E. ECE). Kindly suggest us which specialization we can take. For future point of view & can electronics students study launching tech . which one has more scope, regards -sarathkumar. From what I can tell… Satellite technology is good for you and transition smooth from UG (with ECE). It will be an uphill task if you choose Launching tecnology. With Sat. Tech. Your range of employment will be broad and unrestricted like in Launch Tech. Nowadays all communication is Satcom. The advances in communication technology became so much that it needs a course in itself. You’ll crack it at MIT. You’ll find yourself more useful there. With Launch technology either you have to go to ISRO (or NASA if you really make a mark) or DRDO’s DRDL cluster where Dr. Abdul Kalam was director during 1990s. I feel the choice is not as much as it is with the former. No point taking up a course in space vehicle launch and not able to go anywhere near it. Whereas with Satcom degree you’ll find more opportunity as this subject has permeated all Communications field.

6th Sense Technology

14 minute video program, believe me it’s Worth watching it. Pranav Mistry demos several tools that help the physical world interact with the world of data — including a deep look at his SixthSense device and a new, paradigm-shifting paper “laptop”. In an onstage Q&A, Mistry says he’ll open-source the software behind SixthSense, to open its possibilities to all. Your views and comments are always welcome. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. This is the most awesome technological development. And the best part of the whole thing is that an Indian has done it. Sheer genius. Mr. Mistry can literally run circles round David Copperfield and other great entertainers like him. It really boggles the mind to think what man’s tiny brain could conceive and then build. Mr. Mistry’s wish to open the possibilities to all speaks volumes for his big hearted nature. How many people are there in this world who have such a large heart?May God grant this genius a long and satisfying life. And I must thank you for sharing this information with us. Have a Great Day.

Pcs Technology

If a company has an Ethernet based LAN with 50 workstations and a server, And wish to add another 10 PCs to the network, Running additional cable to support this is not an option due to location and cost involved. What is the best wireless technology for that A B G or N and why? Thank you. Well, I have your answer right here. The answer depends on your location and the area for the new computers. I know that many will automatically say use N as it is the newest and the fastest of the wifi connections. That MAY be the correct technology to use in many cases. It will be the fastest of the ones available BUT it MAY NOT BE for your installation.. 802. 11a may be a good choice. Several think it is the oldest and slowest wifi, but that isn’t true. It is 5. 8 gig and does have a somewhat shorter range due to the frequencies used. BUT it also has the LEAST amount of interference. If you have an area with lots of wifi, then 802. 11a may well be the best choice if the area you need to cover is within a single building. The Pros of 802. 11a – fast maximum speed (full 54mbs); regulated frequencies prevent signal interference from other devices. Has reduced outside interference from all other wifi technology. Is a good choice for businesses in many cases. The Cons of 802. 11a – highest cost; shorter range signal that is more easily obstructed (can be overcome with multiple AP’s) A wireless survey of the area you want to use would be the way to really find out which one to use. If there isn’t too much other wifi in the area then N will be the faster of all these. On local networks that makes a big difference, for net access it doesn’t make much change between any of these. The Pros of 802. 11n – it has the fastest maximum speed and best signal range; it is more resistant to signal interference from outside sources but it is not immune. The Cons of 802. 11n – the standard is not yet finalized; costs more than 802. 11g; the use of multiple signals may greatly interfere with nearby 802. 11b/g based networks.


Technology And Innovation

Technology and innovation are critical to the success of any economy. Yet there are trade barriers that prevent economic development(like farm subsidies), political unstablility that discourages investent and lack of resources. How do we overcome these obstacles. What I found out was – Technology (with adequite skills training.) often precedes development, as it creates a platform for interventions and further innovation. However, such technology should be developed by using local intelligence, or at the very least, collaborating prior to implementing with an assumption that “if it works for the first economy, it is good enough for the second economy”. More than often, it is NOT – as the later requires more, and not less, to ‘overcome obstacles’ and barriers to entry unforeseen during product development. It was already demonstrated that ICT (at least) can be a powerful tool for development, both because of ICT’s inherent characteristics and the mounting empirical evidence that suggests it can in fact contribute a great deal to development goals. It can do so at both the micro and national level by increasing the effectiveness and reach of development interventions, enhancing good governance and lowering the costs of service delivery. Moreover, the right complement of targeted ICT interventions has the potential to play an even more substantial role in accelerating a sustainable dynamic of social and economic development in developing countries. It is (in my opinion) also a myth that political stability is required prior to investment and aid, in order to avoid corruption. But lets not complicate the answer to your question. .

Latest Solar Technology

What is the latest development in solar power technology? Which country is the leading and advanced in solar power technology. Today I found out that… Hey Logan, that’s a difficult question to quantify. Leading in something like technology can mean many things. The Japanese are probably leading the edge of advanced solar photovoltiacs, at least as far as efficiency, but the Americans came out with the first solar shingle. I would have to put my vote in the Germans however. There are basically 2 ways to generate electricity from the sun. One is to use photovoltiac panels, the ones you see on the space station, and on the roof of our garage. They work quite well, are very expensive, and only convert about 12 % of the suns energy to usable electricity. That sounds horrible, but consider that we run our entire home with an array no larger than the roof of our one car carport, and you see that space and efficiency are not really that important for most homes. The other way is to use the heat from the sun to make steam, which turns a turbine generator. Doing this boosts efficiency to about 60 or 70 %. A device like this will probably never be built for home use, but for utility scale projects, they work well. There are 2 such plants in the US, both experhymental. But enter the Germans. They are working on a plan to use large trough shaped solar collectors to heat oil to 600 degrees F. Then circulation pumps will pump the hot oil into a large insulated tank, something the size of a school building. Then they will meter water into the tank with a water to oil heat exchanger. This will allow the 600 degree oil to instantly boil the water into steam, again to run the turbine. This has 2 distinct advantages over just heating water: First, when you heat the water directly, there is lead time to heating into steam and turning the generator, so you have to fire it up long before you plan to need it. And if there is a reduction in electric use, then the excess steam has to be vented off to prevent the turbine from overspeeding, so there is any waste. With the water to oil exchanger, we can use an incoming metering valve like a gas peddle on a car. By allowing more water in, you can spool up the torque at the turbine almost instantly, and throttle it back down just as fast, so you have more control and less waste. Secondly, since that huge tank of oil is good and hot at sundown, it can continue to make steam into the night time hours until all the oil has cooled to about 250 degrees. Now we have access to solar power at night, something none of the previous technologies have pulled off. There are probably other developements out there that are more exciting, but this one is here now and basically uses processes we have known about for years. The plan is to install a huge plant in the NW corner of the Sahara Desert that will run all of Europe. As an additional feature, since they will be using sea water for the steam production, one of the byproducts of producing the electricity will be fresh water, which will be used to irrigate certain high sun intensive agriculture, turning part of the desert into a garden with desalinated sea water. It all has lots of hope, personally I can’t wait to see it in action, if it works as well as expected, I think you’ll see additional plants in other parts of the world. Take care Logan, Rudydoo


Web 2.0 Technologies

I need examples of web 2. 0 websites for an essay I’m writing (‘The effects that Web 2. 0 technologies have had’. ) Can anyone help me out? . After looking around, I learned — Web 2. 0 was a codename for the next phase in website design. From static informative web pages to more interactive pages that allow you to interact and react to the material on the page. The first application were comments and then it grew to ranking linking and other implementations of content interaction. Website that are web 2. 0 today are probably most of the major sites you visit. Every blog today is very very web2. 0 and gives you the ability to comment, content ranking and social bookmarking . This is a good article Here is a list of the top 10 web 2. 0 sites

Pyramid Technologies

. Well, I have your answer. Probably because they weren’t designed by humans in the first place, I have asked many people how they can seem to think that we could have cut and scored laser precision rocks like that and put them in a pyramid formation and have them last 6,000 years plus when we don’t have buildings that will last that long made out of steel. The only conclusion I can come up with is they were built by alien technology, not only that how could that same design be on two different continents, there have even been pyramids discovered in a lake in Wisconsin as well recently

Pyramid Technologies is proud to showcase their latest in bill validation innovation. Capture the market with new High Visibility bezel available from Pyrami. . .


Healthcare Information Technology

I’m from the UK but I watch Fox News sometimes just for a laugh. But anyway my question is, in between of the Bush-cheerleading, there are always loads of reports about new health and medical related technologies. There’s nothing wrong with that, but there seems to be a report mostly all 10 minutes about some new thing that can stop obesity or heart attacks or whatev. It seems a bit obsessive. What is the reason for it. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. Healthcare technology requires experhymentation on people. Past records of people’s health were, always miss stored or lost. Medical Doctors do not really prevent disease some are at the other end, even drugs that lead to luthanasia. Even some that donoate a customers organs, to keep them in the hospital to make them pay bills. Even leaving the patient infront of the clinic, to suing the patient for car, house, or entire retirement fund. Never go to a clinic or hospital, without a health plan. Some might say you had a history therefore the plan is void. . . Other cases, where the patient is forced to go homeless; this happens really often. If you search these hospitals, and homeless shelters. . Most were non-drug patients, non-criminals but forced to become homeless by some relative or claimed friend.


Media Technology

. What I found out was – How media and technology influences community health? Well, technology must have influences community health as technology plays a very big role in making it possible and easier to carry out a medical procedure. A dialysis machine, for example, is a technology which is being used to treat kidney failure. So definitely technology influences community health by making it possible to identify and cure diseases that were once deemed incurable. I believe that the role of technology is a very crucial part of medical health as I can’t imagine any health practice which does not make use of technology unless you are speaking about mental health. Too many health practices are dependent on technology. Technology is even used to keep a ‘vegetable’ still alive otherwise he would be no more than a corpse. Now, media on the other hand influences community health by having discussions about a new health procedure or policy which has been implemented regarding community health, like the new abortion policy in oklahoma (not sure if it is related though. . ) The media plays the role of mediator between the community and the medical professionals or law makers to determine what is the best for the community health. I hope I did not go out of point and was able to answer the question. .

New Battery Technology

I am asking because, to me, it seems like electric cars may be taking over the vehicle market in the next decade or2. And I am curious about how batteries might progress in the next decade. Tesla already makes cars that can go 300 miles on a charge and recharge in like 45 minutes. Not to mention having 400+ horsepower and acceleration unrivaled by just about any gasoline car. The only real problem is the price. It’s certainly not bad for such a high quality EV. But it’s still not exactly in the price range of your average citizen. Is it safe to say that in the next decade, batteries will get considerably better and cheaper? I hope so. And so today I found out that… Here are just a few of the new battery technologies to watch. There’s Lithium Sulfur: %E2%80%93sulfur_battery * Nickel-Lithium batteries: %E2%80%93lithium_battery * Magnesium batteries: %E2%80%99s-new-magnesium-battery * And while not new, Lithium Titanate is finally beginning to come down in price. This battery type can be charged in just 5 minutes, and can last for hundreds of thousands of miles of use: * Also not new, NIMH batteries were invented in the 1990s. But the patents – which have been controlled by an oil company – will expire in the next few years. After that, the NIMH EV battery will be very cheap to produce: * Even the oldest battery tech, lead-acid, has been improved. The ‘Firefly’ battery can perform nearly as well as a lithium battery, but is very cheap to manufacture: * Lastly, the EESTOR supercapacitor technology is very exciting (but it could just be vaporware. We should have seen a demo by now. )


Information About Technology

It all about the technology. Well, I have your answer. Technology can be most broadly defined as the material entities created by the application of mental and physical effort to nature in order to achieve any value. In this use, technology is the current state of our knowledge of how to combine resources to produce desired products, to solve problems, fulfill needs, or satisfy wants. Technology in this sense includes technical methods, skills, processes, techniques, tools and raw materials (for example, in such uses as computer technology, construction technology, or medical technology).

Technology For Kids

I am currently working on getting my Master's degree in Business Technology. At the time I figured Business Technology was or meant that I would be basically working on the technology part of Business. My passion is computers I Absolutely love computers so I'm hoping that my definition of Business Technology is correct. My question is what exactly is Business Technology, what can I do with that type of degree, what type of jobs can I get with that degree and is Business Technology a degree that has promising salary benefits. I was so glad to find this — Business technology management (BTM) is a term for a group of services intended to help businesses that might not have their own information technology (IT) department. BTM can include technology planning, project management, support, database services, disaster recovery, network management, security, and document services such as e-billing, document formatting, and mass printing and mailing. A company that offers BTM services may offer consulting or the actual service itself. Business Technology Management (BTM) is a management science which aims to unify business and technology business strategies with the aim of extracting the full potential value of business technology solutions. Process: This dimension refers to the institution of a set of robust, flexible processes, broadly defined as: Quality of Business Practice: Doing the right things Efficiency: Doing the right things efficiently Effectiveness: Doing the right things well Organisation: This refers to the establishment of appropriate organisational structures essentially, establishing a structure in which every member understands the scope and responsibilities of his or her role, and understands the structure of which they are a part. Information: This emphasises the value that the effective, timely provision of information has in enabling effective decision making, and puts into place a structure of data and metrics to allow their best use. Technology: Tying the other three dimensions together is the idea that technology plays a vital role in all processes. The appropriate use of technology can enable timely information sharing, improve co-ordination between members of an organisation and makes processes easier to execute. BTM Capabilities A capability is defined as a competency achieved as a result of combining each of the above dimensions and creating repeatable management processes. Business Technology Management defines 17 such capabilities, grouped into four functional areas. Governance and Organisation: These capabilities ensure that business technology decisions are effectively identified and executed essentially, developing an organisational structure that meets the needs of the business, gives consideration to regulation and manages risk appropriately. Managing Technology Investments : These capabilities ensure that the enterprise understands its current IT capabilities, what is currently available and what it is working on for the future. They also ensure that executives select the best technology initiatives to advance the objectives of the business. Strategy & Planning: These capabilities ensure that Information Officers make the most appropriate moves to synchronise technology and business, both reducing complexity and planning for future developments. Strategic Enterprise Architecture: These capabilities ensure that appropriate information exists that can describe current and future business environments, and enable executives to make plans and implement strategies that will simplify the business technology environment within the enterprise. BTM Maturity Model All of these measures and capabilities are useless without a method by which to measure their effectiveness. With that in mind, the BTM maturity model defines five levels of maturity across each of the dimensions outlined above (process, organisation, information and technology). Essentially, the model grades an enterprise on the level of BTM maturity it has reached, resulting in an objective measure of the success or failure of the implementation of best practices. Level 1 enterprises exhibit limited evidence of business technology alignment. These enterprises mainly manage processes in a simple task-based manner. Level 2 enterprises begin to show evidence of an attempt to assemble information to make major decisions, but are likely hampered in that effort by poor alignment between executive and technology management. Level 3 enterprises are functional in BTM. Their practices neither greatly harm nor greatly benefit the enterprise as a whole. Level 4 enterprises have achieved full BTM implementation. Their capabilities ensure that there is strong alignment between business and technology decision making, giving them a distinct edge over less aligned competition. Level 5 enterprises have achieved the Holy Grail of BTM. They have reached the stage at which business and technology is not only aligned but can actually identify future opportunities and adapt in advance so that they are positioned to take advantage of them when they arise. These enterprises are vastly more agile and adaptable than most of their competition, and as a result are much more likely to lead the market in their industry.

High Technology

Please help me to write a paragraph on technology. After looking around, I learned — Technology is a broad concept that deals with human as well as other animal species' usage and knowledge of tools and crafts, and how it affects a species' ability to control and adapt to its environment. Technology is a term with origins in the Greek technologa, 'craft' and -loga, the study of something, or the branch of knowledge of a discipline. However, a strict definition is elusive; "technology" can refer to material objects of use to humanity, such as machines, hardware or utensils, but can also encompass broader themes, including systems, methods of organization, and techniques. The term can either be applied generally or to specific areas: Examples include "construction technology", "medical technology", or "state-of-the-art technology". The distinction between science, engineering and technology is not always clear. Science is the reasoned investigation or study of phenomena, aimed at discovering enduring principles among elements of the phenomenal world by employing formal techniques such as the scientific method. [8] Technologies are not usually exclusively products of science, because they have to satisfy requirements such as utility, usability and safety. Engineering is the goal-oriented process of designing and making tools and systems to exploit natural phenomena for practical human means, often (but not always) using results and techniques from science. The development of technology may draw upon many fields of knowledge, including scientific, engineering, mathematical, linguistic, and historical knowledge, to achieve any practical result. Technology is often a consequence of science and engineering although technology as a human activity precedes the two fields. For example, science might study the flow of electrons in electrical conductors, by using already-existing tools and knowledge. This new-found knowledge may then be used by engineers to create new tools and machines, such as semiconductors, computers, and other forms of advanced technology. In this sense, scientists and engineers may both be considered technologists; the three fields are often considered as one for the purposes of research and reference. [9] The exact relations between science and technology in particular have been debated by scientists, historians, and policymakers in the late 20th century, in part because the debate can inform the funding of basic and applied science. In immediate wake of World War II, for example, in the United States it was widely considered that technology was simply "applied science" and that to fund basic science was to reap technological results in due time. An articulation of this philosophy could be found explicitly in Vannevar Bush's treatise on postwar science policy, ScienceThe Endless Frontier: "New products, new industries, and more jobs require continuous additions to knowledge of the laws of nature. . This essential new knowledge can be obtained only through basic scientific research. " In the late-1960s, however, this view came under direct attack, leading towards initiatives to fund science for specific tasks (initiatives resisted by the scientific community). The issue remains contentiousthough most analysts resist the model that technology simply is a result of scientific research.


Mobile Technology

. I think I found an answer. Mobile technology is exactly what the name implies – technology that is portable. Examples of mobile IT devices include: * laptop computers * palmtop computers or personal digital assistants * mobile phones and "smart phones" – high-end phones with more advanced capabilities * global positioning system (GPS) devices * wireless debit/credit card payment terminals Mobile devices can be enabled to use a variety of communications technologies such as: * wireless fidelity (WiFi) – a type of wireless local area network technology * Bluetooth – connects mobile devices wirelessly * "third generation" (3G), global system for mobile technology (GSM) and general packet radio service (GPRS) data services – data networking services for mobile phones * dial-up services – data networking services using modems and telephone lines * virtual private networks – secure access to a private network It is therefore possible to network the mobile device to a home office or the Internet while travelling. Benefits Mobile computing can improve the service you offer your customers. For example, you could use your laptop computer to give a presentation. You could then transfer PDFs of your product literature to your client's computer. Or you could connect remotely to your diary to arrange a follow-up appointment. Alternatively, you can enable customers to pay for services or goods without having to go to the till. For example, by using a wireless payment terminal diners can pay for their meal without leaving their table. More powerful solutions can link you directly into the office network while working off site, for instance to access your company's database or accounting systems. For example, you could: * set up a new customer's account * check prices and stock availability * place an order online This leads to great flexibility in working – for example, enabling home working, or working while travelling. Increasingly, networking "hot spots" are being provided in public areas that allow connection back to the office network or the Internet. Drawbacks There are costs involved in setting up the equipment and training required to make use of mobile devices. Mobile IT devices can expose valuable data to unauthorised people if the proper precautions are not taken to ensure that the devices, and the data they can access, are kept safe. See our guide on securing your wireless systems.


Creative Technology

I am picking my GCSE options very soon so I need to know about this. I think I found an answer. Hi Gemma, I work for Edexcel (an Awarding Body) who have developed and run the BTEC in Information and Creative Technology qualifications. It is the next generation IT/computing qualification which has been developed to inspire and enthuse learners to become technology savvy to become producers of computer-based products and systems, rather than just consumers of them. The exact course offered will depend on the school or college. However, the student could learn about how create simple mobile apps, digital animations, relational databases and much more. Please note that the BTEC in I&CT is included in the Government's list of high quality vocational qualifications which will count in the school's headline measures (5A* to Cs) in 2015 and it has been accredited by Ofqual (the regulator). I'm confident that the school or college would be happy to answer your questions. Alternatively, you can find out more by downloading the specification from our website here (under 'specification&#039: With best wishes, Howard


Technology For Teachers

. Do you know what I found? Technology has developed in response to man's needs to solve problems and make life easier. Educators believe that the same principle could apply to schools. Integrating technology in the classroom can facilitate learning and address many educational issues. Schools aim to provide effective educational opportunities for all students. Investing in computer technology at school supports the idea of student centered learning. Integrating technology in the classroom may be a solution but it is also the problem. Classrooms have changed in appearance. The learning environment is no longer reflected by frontal teaching where the teacher is actively engaged up front and the student is passively seated. Student performance has replaced frontal lectures. "It is difficult to find a "front" to the classroom because the focus is on learning instead of teaching" (McKenzie, 1998). Teachers are now facilitators and managers who organize the class and delegate work to the students. They are busy finding students meaningful "things to do [which] promote learning" (Cambourne et al, 2001). Organizing and managing a technology enhanced classroom is not easy. Teachers need to be creative with the skills of a manager and technology expert to "guide students to identify, select and use the most appropriate technology tools for all kinds of learning activities" (ETS, 2003). Classrooms with computers or computer rooms need organization and management. Scheduling and rotation are an important aspect of the "wired" (McKenzie, 1998) classroom. Teachers need to plan ahead for student rotation in an efficient way. There are many variables that come into play such as the number of computers available for each student and the effectiveness of the learning activities. Students work at a different pace. Even in a classroom with a computer for each person there is a need to provide work for the fast working students who have finished the task and have spare time. Teachers need to challenge students by keeping them occupied with appropriate learning activities. Cambourne discusses "what makes for a successful teaching-learning activity" (Cambourne, 2001). After nine year of research, he found that "effective teaching-learning activities were those [that] involved sharing, discussing, arguing, clarifying, explaining, making personal connections, thinking out loud, listening to others think out loud, negotiating meanings, and jointly constructing and interpreting texts" (2001) and using teaching-learning activities in small groups. There are two reasons for keeping students actively engaged in pairs, individually or in teams. First, it allows the teacher to work with other individuals or small groups. Secondly, pairs or small teams may be a solution to a limited number of computers in the classroom. Collaborative and team learning requires new skills in cooperative work. Students need to learn how to get along, share and learn from each other. Forming teams needs planning. It may be necessary for teachers to "consider computer skills and specific assignment when pairing students, change partners if conflict arises or needs are different, have peers critique projects and give constructive feedback and have trained experts from the class help others" (Bray, 2003). Having a management plan is useful when planning an Internet project. The Center for I'mproved Engineering and Science Education breaks the plan down into four major management components: Instructional, classroom, technology and time (CIESE, 2000). The first deals with how to deliver student instruction s, learning objectives, curriculum standards, hands-on activities and project materials. The second component has to do with cooperative groups and ways of managing students in the classroom by keeping them occupied. The third assures whether technology resources are limited or not, there should always be a back-up plan, Internet safety and long term goals. The final plan deals with "the budgeting of class time and the development for a basic timeline for implementation" (CIESE, 2000). Adding deadlines is important because it allows for student accountability. Students work independently by learning the skills necessary to follow schedules and maintain deadlines. Finally, effective classroom management strategies for technology, requires teachers to provide students with clear guidelines on school policies and procedures in working with technology in the classroom. Every school should have an Acceptable User Policy signed by both students and their parents on what constitutes proper behavior when using technology. In addition teachers will want to "establish norms for student behavior when using equipment to complete an assignment. It helps to anticipate possible snafus and decide how they will be handled" (WestEd RTEC, 2002). Every teacher should notice a problem before it escalates. It may be necessary to rehearse the computer lesson plan before going into class (Wes
