We live in a very advanced world where everything is almost achievable. Probably, there would be no change between today’s world and the world of three centuries ago without the need and random discoveries that forced people to achieve great things. Science and technology have had a huge positive impact on any society. Today’s world has become a digital, even human thought. Our world has become a global village, and now it is better.
The benefits of science and technology far outweigh any perceived shortcomings. Some of the most important impacts of technology are related to communications; internet and mobile phones. Progress has been made in communications and the expansion of economic trade. Today we are hearing about information and communication technologies (ICT). Any institution worthy of its name must be truly exceptional. Information technology has gained momentum in the current generation; from communication, business, education to the entertainment industry. Information technology improves productivity with less effort and improves productivity through the use of a variety of operations. Without a computer and internet, it will be difficult for people around the world to get answers to their questions. You can use the Internet to find a lot of information that can answer an open question asked at school, communicate with people, conduct transactions, publish news, buy goods, and advertise. The list is endless.
Advances in science and technology now make mass communications possible, so we have not only television, radio and newspapers, but even cell phones offering multifunctional services; long-distance calls, listen to radio and music, play games, take pictures, record voice and videos, and browse the Internet. The benefits we derive from ICT services are widespread in our generation today. This increases the productivity of individuals and employees, as knowledge about people’s lives outside the region in which they lived is now limitless. The idea of mass communication also has a profound impact on politics, as leaders now address people directly in many ways.
In addition, current global challenges are much more accessible to the public. Communication has also taken it to the next level, as people can find new ways to communicate with loved ones at home.
Science and technology increase the knowledge of society. Science helps people better understand how the world works, and technology helps scientists make these discoveries. The training was maximized through the development of various media that are interactive and take the learning experience to a new level. The business grew and developed thanks to breakthroughs in advertising.
Modern technology has changed the way many companies produce and do business. For example, the idea and use of video and webcasts helped businesses overcome geographic barriers and enabled them to connect with employees and customers around the world. In today’s economy, this has helped businesses cut costs and reduce travel inconveniences by allowing them to meet as often as possible without worrying about finding a budget to allow it. Modern technology helps businesses reduce carbon emissions and become environmentally friendly, allowing them to do almost everything with a computer.
Advances in health care have been achieved through the development of science and technology. Advances in medical technology have greatly contributed to prolonging people’s lives. People with disabilities or health problems are now increasingly able to live closer to normal life. Indeed, science contributes to the development of medicines to improve health, as well as technologies such as movable chairs and even electronic devices that control the current level of the body. Most devices used by people with disabilities are convenient and easy to use.
Science and technology improve road safety. Today, law enforcement agencies use laser technology to detect vehicles exceeding the speed limit. Technology has led to the development of modern machines such as cars and motorcycles that allow us to be mobile and travel freely, as well as aircraft that fly at supersonic speeds.
Modern technology is really great. However, this has been a problem for third world countries, especially in terms of production. Consumption alone and the inability to produce is not beneficial to any country in terms of trade balance. The most sensitive parts of the technology are the theoretical or conceptual parts and technical parts. These are the pillars of technological development in the world. Without ideas, there will be no technology. Third world countries must return to the main, that is, primitive. There should be a meeting place of traditions and modern technological inventions. Third world countries follow import substitution strategies, importing semi-finished products and completing the manufacturing process at the national level. Third world countries started badly. They started to climb the stairs from above, which is very wrong and difficult. They believed that the ability to buy and use modern technological products entitles to success in scientific and technological development. This makes third world countries a dependent system, because working in factories is a chore, and it is inevitably related to the question of the idea of technology transfer. They should seek to transfer technology, but the problem was that no country was willing to transfer its hard-earned technological knowledge to another country for certain reasons that encouraged countries to compete; global policy and economic potential. It is a struggle to dominate other countries technologically, economically and politically. Be the first to invent new gadgets and the latest electronic devices, including those used in modern warfare, use other countries as a market for finished products and have a strong voice that can influence other countries. They should consider engaging in technical espionage in order to master the basics of technological development if they are to break free from the shackles of technological domination.
Finally, only in the third world begins an embargo on the import of certain electronic and mechanical products that will replace the need for creativity, the habit of consuming foreign products. Countries such as Thailand, Burma, Brazil, South Africa, etc. should be modeled. These countries had experienced colonialism, but they had not allowed it to suppress its creative prowess.
