Our intuition about the future is linear. But the reality of information technology is exponential, and that makes a profound difference. If I take 30 steps linearly, I get to 30. If I take 30 steps exponentially, I get to a billion.
Technology has always been a catalyst for change, such as the invention of the airplane or the Internet.
The basis of our partnership strategy and our partnership approach: We build the social technology. They provide the music.
Time travel and teleportation will have to wait. It may take centuries to master these technology. But within the coming decades, we will understand dark matter, perhaps test string theory, find planets which can harbor life, and maybe have Brain 2.0, i.e. our consciousness on a disk which will survive even after we die.
Education technology and school construction go together. Modernization, updating education facilities, and making a capital investment in education are all included.
I love this stuff – bitcoin, ethereum, blockchain technology – and what the future holds.
Skin has become inadequate in interfacing with reality. Technology has become the body’s new membrane of existence.
Technology is, of course, a double edged sword. Fire can cook our food but also burn us.

The biotechnology wave is similar to the information technology wave of the 1980s and 1990s.
You just can’t bifurcate bitcoin currency from the technology. Bitcoin will always need a monetary base.
We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.
Technology is best when it brings people together.
Do I think technology is bad? No. I think it’s wonderful that the world is so connected now. But I think, as a result, childhood ends a little earlier.
Technology doesn’t just do things for us. It does things to us, changing not just what we do but who we are.
I think it is widely agreed that Carl Steinitz, over the 50 years he taught at Harvard, has been one of the most important figures in influencing the theory and practice of landscape architecture and the application of computer technology to planning.
I never thought, in my lifetime, that you’d be able to watch movies, read books and listen to music from a phone, but I guess the technology of tomorrow is here today.
Technology has made it possible to order food, buy clothes, get a ride – anything you can think of, really – at the touch of a button. But what about having the right people near you when you need them?
I did not grow up around computers, so technology was not a tool used every day in my household. I was drawn to computer science due to the creative nature of programming and the technology focus.
Innovation and disruption are the hallmarks of the technology world, and hardly a moment passes when we are not thinking, doing, or talking about these topics.
As we continue advancing and leveraging GIS and as we keep bringing in new generations of technology as well as new generations of people, my sense is we’re going to achieve extraordinary things.
I feel like an old person. I feel like, ‘What is this technology?’ I think there’s some seven-year-olds who are more advanced than I am right now.
We will always have STEM with us. Some things will drop out of the public eye and will go away, but there will always be science, engineering, and technology. And there will always, always be mathematics.
I think there are going to be a bunch of tablet-like devices. It’s really a different product category.
This idea of ‘New Collar’ says for the jobs of the future here, there are many in technology that can be done without a four-year college degree and, therefore, ‘New Collar’ not ‘Blue Collar,’ ‘White Collar.’ It’s ‘New Collar.’
AIR was born from thinking about how rich Internet applications would play out over time and what new pieces of technology would be in demand for these to go to their next generation.
The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don’t really even notice it, so it’s part of everyday life.
We live in an age of innovation, where digital technology is providing solutions to problems before we’ve even realised we needed them. We see it every day as we find new ways to travel, eat and shop.
The most important thing we can do is inspire young minds and to advance the kind of science, math and technology education that will help youngsters take us to the next phase of space travel.
Technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master.
Mobile internet will be the single-most defining technology of this century for human development.
I received my undergraduate degree in engineering in 1939 and a Master of Science degree in mathematical physics in 1941 at Steven Institute of Technology.
No technology comes close to the effect of a live symphony orchestra.
Being nerdy just means being passionate about something, including everyone – the coolest people on Earth are passionate and therefore nerdy about something whatever it is, whether it’s sports, or gaming, or technology, or fashion, or beauty, or food, or whatever.
Because of technology, we don’t develop telepathy. We don’t use telepathy, but use, you know, the mobile phones. Why?
We create the technology to connect the world. We are a large network company and not restricted to just the telecom space.
We must speed up the deployment of broadband in order to bring high-speed data services to homes and businesses. The spread of information technology has contributed to a steady growth in U.S. productivity.
We are driven by providing technology to enterprise customers.
Science and technology multiply around us. To an increasing extent they dictate the languages in which we speak and think. Either we use those languages, or we remain mute.
I used to think that cyberspace was fifty years away. What I thought was fifty years away, was only ten years away. And what I thought was ten years away… it was already here. I just wasn’t aware of it yet.
If you think back to the beginning of cell phones, laptops or really any new technology, it’s always expensive.
The computer offers another kind of creativity. You cannot ignore the creativity that computer technology can bring. But you need to be able to move between those two different worlds.
What has always made IBM a fascinating and compelling place for me is the passion of the company, and its people, to apply technology and scientific thinking to major societal issues.
We envision a more Germany-style economy, where 20 percent of our workforce is in manufacturing. And we’re not talking about banging tin in the back room. We’re talking about high technology across the board, whether it’s computer chips or cars or anything in between.
Design and technology should be the subject where mathematical brainboxes and science whizzkids turn their bright ideas into useful products.
Technology is the future, I have seen the third industrial revolution, and we are in the midst of the fourth industrial revolution.
But the first the general public learned about the discovery was the news of the destruction of Hiroshima by the atom bomb. A splendid achievement of science and technology had turned malign. Science became identified with death and destruction.
In today’s knowledge-based economy, what you earn depends on what you learn. Jobs in the information technology sector, for example, pay 85 percent more than the private sector average.
What are the symbols of American strength, wealth, power and modernity? Certainly not jazz and rock and roll, not chewing-gum or hamburgers, Broadway or Hollywood. It’s their skyscrapers. Their Pentagon. Their science. Their technology.

Technology has advanced more in the last thirty years than in the previous two thousand. The exponential increase in advancement will only continue.
The mechanical loom and the calculator have shown us that technology is both disruptive and filled with opportunities. But it would be hard to find a decent argument that we would have been better off without these inventions.
Every time there’s a new tool, whether it’s Internet or cell phones or anything else, all these things can be used for good or evil. Technology is neutral; it depends on how it’s used.
The DJ still has the relationship with the people, I believe. I don’t know to call the DJ ‘the ambassadors’ or what, but we still are connecting the dots, getting the good stuff and passing it on to the people. DJs still have relevance, even with the technology that elevates the DJ beyond being a selector.
One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.
Every film that comes out that incorporates CGI or performance capture is a little bit ahead of the last film that came out. You’re on the cutting edge for a certain amount of time, and then the new technology comes out.
