Electronic medical records are, in a lot of ways, I think the aspect of technology that is going to revolutionize the way we deliver care. And it’s not just that we will be able to collect information, it’s that everyone involved in the healthcare enterprise will be able to use that information more effectively.
If your goal is anything but profitability – if it’s to be big, or to grow fast, or to become a technology leader – you’ll hit problems.
Our technological powers increase, but the side effects and potential hazards also escalate.
Engineering or technology is all about using the power of science to make life better for people, to reduce cost, to improve comfort, to improve productivity, etc.
The most important thing is to make the technology inclusive – make the world change. Next, pay attention to those people who are 30 years old, because those are the internet generation. They will change the world; they are the builders of the world.
We know that, when it comes to technology and the economy, if you’re not constantly moving forward, then – without a doubt – you’re moving backwards.
Once archaeologists have shown possible ‘new’ ancient features, they can import the data into their iPads and take it to the field to do survey or excavation work. Technology doesn’t mean we aren’t digging in the dirt anymore – it’s just that we know better where to dig.
Productivity depends on many factors, including our workforce’s knowledge and skills and the quantity and quality of the capital, technology, and infrastructure that they have to work with.
People bought bitcoin because they thought it would be worth more tomorrow. And a lot of people got lucky. But we’re not seeing real people use bitcoin. And we don’t know what problem it solves. Now, blockchain, I think, is a genius advancement in technology.
Technology… the knack of so arranging the world that we don’t have to experience it.
The spoken word was the first technology by which man was able to let go of his environment in order to grasp it in a new way.
The EU can lead the world toward more humane technology. But doing so requires thinking more broadly about reining in social media platforms to prevent them from degrading our democracies.
Once you understand that Goliath is much weaker than you think he is, and David has superior technology, then you say: why do we tell the story the way we do? It becomes, actually, a far more meaningful and important story in its retelling than in the kind of unsophisticated way we’ve done it for, I think, too long.
Technology is vital. We have to have development in new technology if we’re going to solve these environmental problems without throwing humanity back in poverty.
What I found personally to be true was that it’s easier to manipulate people rather than technology.
Performance capture is a technology, not a genre; it’s just another way of recording an actor’s performance.
I’d never thought about acting as a job. I was an engineer; I was in science and technology. I loved movies and television growing up, but I’d never thought about it as, ‘Oh, that guy Denzel Washington is employed as an actor.’
Whether one welcomes or deplores it, nothing is more surely and exactly characteristic of modern times than the irresistible invasion of the human world by technology. Mechanism invading like a tide all the places of the earth and all forms of social activity.
Technology is the devil, and the more technology you have, the higher the price you pay.
While we cannot predict the future, we will most surely live it. Every action and decision we take – or don’t – ripples into the future. For the first time, we have the capability, the technology, and the knowledge to direct those ripples.
As medical research continues and technology enables new breakthroughs, there will be a day when malaria and most all major deadly diseases are eradicated on Earth.
We’re so connected, kind of ever-presently, with technology now. People are carrying their phones with them and looking at the screen so much.
Thanks to modern technology, we now can deliver every text in every research library to every citizen in our country, and to everyone in the world. If we fail to do so, we are not living up to our civic duty.
Even when you take a holiday from technology, technology doesn’t take a break from you.
I don’t particularly enjoy watching films in 3D because I think that a well-shot and well-projected film has a very three-dimensional quality to it, so I’m somewhat sceptical of the technology.
The global equalization of wages and the exponential growth in technology has created a job-killing machine that’s only going to get worse.
With technology, there is so much isolation with people now, that there are very few places where you can connect.
To bring out a new technology for consumers first, you just had a very long road to go down to try to find people who actually would pay money for something.
The Internet treats censorship as a malfunction and routes around it.
People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware.
Looking ahead, I believe that the underlying importance of higher education, of science, of technology, of research and scholarship to our quality of life, to the strength of our economy, to our security in many dimensions will continue to be the most important message.
SpaceX is only 12 years old now. Between now and 2040, the company’s lifespan will have tripled. If we have linear improvement in technology, as opposed to logarithmic, then we should have a significant base on Mars, perhaps with thousands or tens of thousands of people.
IT for a long time has been about how do you make old processes more efficient. But with all of the progress in digital technology, there is a kind of digital transformation that is occurring. And you see it with the explosion in the number of devices; you see it in the explosion in the number of applications.
Technology and social media have brought power back to the people.
Weaken American encryption and consumers – both good and bad actors – will simply seek their technology from companies based abroad. Weaker encryption also means weaker national security.
Looking down the road, space exploration and the benefits it yields – in medicine and information technology – should not be overlooked.
Once a new technology rolls over you, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road.
My mom’s a psychologist, and I think that has influenced me on a personal level. Plus, I’m just generally interested in visualization and humanity, social activity and technology, and what happens in aggregate.
The ‘Net is a waste of time, and that’s exactly what’s right about it.
This is unproven technology, and if you don’t know what you’re doing, you shouldn’t interact with tokens – from an investor and security perspective.
When I started my engineering, I had to support my education expenses; I was then studying in what is now the National Institute of Technology in Srinagar.
I believe in teaching as a real job. I don’t think it’s a substitute for anything else. It’s been shown to me that teachers can help, and the writing today is just as good as it was when I started out. Technology hasn’t changed that.
In addition to encouraging failure, I would also encourage companies to broadly create a culture of innovation. That should mean more than just technology and invention; it should mean something millennials know well: Ingenuity.
For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled.
Rather than worrying about entities, we should worry about the trends in technology that may cause disruptions… if we get so paranoid that banking is no longer going to exist and banks are going to get disrupted, I think that is a different worry.
Biology – DNA – is technology. It is coding. It is physical coding, but still code.
Gates is the ultimate programming machine. He believes everything can be defined, examined, reduced to essentials, and rearranged into a logical sequence that will achieve a particular goal.
Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important.
I’ve always been a bit of a mix between art and technology. I used to paint a lot, but I’m not very good with my hands. It has always been a fusion between my computer gaming interests and being exposed to the rich data of society that we live in.
People are looking to have more meaning in their lives. It is a sign the technology community is coming of age.
We need to make sure that there’s art in the school. Why? Why should art be in the school? Because if art isn’t in a school, then a guy like Steve Jobs doesn’t get a chance to really express himself because in order for art to meet technology, you need art.
Technology causes problems as well as solves problems. Nobody has figured out a way to ensure that, as of tomorrow, technology won’t create problems. Technology simply means increased power, which is why we have the global problems we face today.
I enjoy privacy. I think it’s nice to have a little mystery. I think because of technology a lot of the mystery is gone in life, and I’d like to preserve some of that.
