The Touch-Screen Generation

The Touch-Screen Generation | FUTURE OF TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

To date, no body of research has definitively proved that the iPad will make your preschooler smarter or teach her to speak Chinese, or alternatively that it will rust her neural circuitry—the device has been out for only three years, not much more than the time it takes some academics to find funding and gather research subjects. So what’s a parent to do?

Laura Burton's insight:

This article discusses technology for children and the way they play their games on things like iPad's tablets and more. Research has shown that since children started playing mind rattling games on these resources they have improved their ability to learn at a young age. This is why it is important that applications for children continue to advance. So if you read this article you will realize that this form of technology is important.

A good, if rather long read about the concerns of parents in relation to touch screen technology.

Phil Havlik's curator insight, March 22, 2013 11:01 AM

As a parent of three under age 5, always a fascinating topic. As a former teacher, fascinated for the potential. As a borderline millenial, and a member of the generation who grew up with the TV babysitter, fascinated to see where it all leads

DiAnne Galm's curator insight, March 23, 2013 11:32 AM

I am amazed when I watch my 3 and 2 year old great nephews using an iPad or iPhone. They are already more tech savvy than some adults I know.

Laura Burton's insight:

Marc Lallanill, assistant editor of Live. Science wrote this article on the 6th of March 2013, in discussion of the technology research that has created a car that doesn’t have a motor and only runs on hydrogen fuel cells and is a quiet running car.

In this article the author Marc Lallanill reviews the technology that has been used in cars. Due to technology there is no longer a motor in these cars and therefore they are quieter.

The author explains how using hydrogen fuel cells can make a more fuel efficient car that will in the long save you money. This article shows relevant information that this is one of the most important technology advances around.

The research focuses on updating technology, so that cars can be more efficient resources. This article on the Hyundai SUV is relevant my study topic as my job is too find 5 technologies that will be the most important in the next 5-10 Years.

The main limitation is that the article only discusses what the car has and not the eco friendly side of things. Therefore the author outlines the importance of technology in the world of cars.

The article at hand discusses how another form of technology is important, this is so as the article discusses cars having new technology upgrade and is more efficient. Therefore this article runs perfectly with my discussion topic.

Mobile Phone Tools we under-utilize

Mobile Phone Tools we under-utilize | FUTURE OF TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it
Often times we under-utilize a lot of Mobile Phone Tools. Mobile Phone are quipped with Mobile Phone Tools to make our lives easier. Read the article to....

Laura Burton's insight:

Mobile Phone’s tools are under-utilized, by Nwosu Mavtrevor, January 15th 2013.

This article discusses the tools on mobile phones not being used and how the tools will make lives easier when it comes to remembering those important meetings, and dates, and calculations.

The author of this article Nwosu Mavtrevor discusses how important these tools are to your everyday use. This is discussed as it will help to remember those important dates, and make you aware of what your mobile phone can do for you. Another thing it can do is record any threatening or abusive phone calls you may receive and can then be used as evidence. All of these things your phone can do is what the author is trying to tell you, so you can make the most of your phone applications.

The research shows the importance of these technological tools and applications on your phone. This article is making people aware that they don’t need a diary, calculator etc. So why carry all of these objects around when u can have it all there on your mobile phone. Set those reminders so you never miss another important date. This is why mobile phones and their tools are so important.

This article is a useful article on my research topic because the author Nwosu Mavtrevor explains the importance of mobile phones and their applications.

Therefore this article provides evidence that suggests that mobile phones are and will continue to be an important form of technology. Mobile phones don’t just make phone calls, send text messages, they also remind you of important dates and many other things.

The article at hand will help to show that mobile phones are an important technology resource and will continue to do so over the next decade.

Da Vinci surgical robot peeling a grape at Southmead Hospital event

Da Vinci surgical robot requires no introduction.There are more than 1,000 Da Vinci robots worldwide, and this particular robot has performed 450 prostate cancer removals alone. In this video, surgeons at Southmead Hospital in the UK demonstrated its ability to make delicate cuts by peeling a grape.

Surgical robot:

 

A video from youtube that was shared by millions about the Da Vinci robot that completes surgical operations on humans. This is part of the current trend in the IT industry and will be one of the most important  technologies  of the next decade.

In this video scientists show how technology is the futre of medicine and the importance of having surgical robots operating all over the world.

After creating this robot and writing many programs they have finally gotten it right. A robot that can  cut so delicately and steadily it can perform surgical procedures on humans. Surgeons from a hospital in the UK demonstrated the robots fine ability to make careful and precise cuts by getting the robot to peel the skin off a grape.

The research that has been conducted by the scientist focuses on the capability of a robot and the difference in successful surgery. A robot is a steady piece of machinery that can successfully complete life threatening operations. A human hand is a different story the surgeon may get shakey if they are working on a small sensitive  part of the human body. If the surgery is one that is time consuming and can only be completed by a certain surgeon then they may become tured, and the risk of faults increases.

This research topic focuses solely on the future of technology and the importance of it. The surgical robot will help to save many lives world wide and that is why it is one of the 5 most important pieces of technology.

The limitation on the surgical robot is that we were only told that it has successfullly completed surgery’s and were shown the skinning of a grape. This will be proven more important if the audience was shown a video of the robot conducting a life saving operation.

The video shows evidence that out of all the different variety’s of technology a surgical robot is one of the most important technological advances and will continue to improve and become well-known and muchly needed world wide over the next decade.

The research conducted is on ‘Over the next  5-10 years what is the most important technologies in the technolgy industry’. This has been proven  to be one of the important technologies because it results in saving life’s and create’s a higher survival rate.

Matthew Conditsis's curator insight, March 10, 2013 4:51 AM

Research and development in such thing as 3D printers, mobile devices, big data, apps and cloud computing are all discussed in this article.  It outlines Cisco’s chief futurist and chief technologist Dave Evans views on developments for the future of big data.  He quotes “Our love of high-definition video accounts for much of the increase.  91% of Internet data in 2015 will be video”.

 

Also described are 3D printers which create solid objects from digital data and it does this by building them in layers.  It is believed that 3D printing will transform the manufacturing processes.  It is hard to believe that a device connected to a printer can print a solid object.

 

Sensor network, virtual humans and a host of other technologies are being developed.  Right now some product is being thought of or invented that will change the world in another 10 years.  Cloud computing, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, quantum computing and robots will all be part of the future .
