Relying on the government to protect your privacy is like asking a peeping tom to install your window blinds.
As lifespan increases fertility rates go down all over the world. Humans will create better technology and space travel will increase. These are all good signs for the future.
These days the technology can solve our problems and then some. Solutions may not only erase physical or mental deficits but leave patients better off than ‘able-bodied’ folks. The person who has a disability today may have a superability tomorrow.
The purpose of technology is not to confuse the brain but to serve the body.
All of the books in the world contain no more information than is broadcast as video in a single large American city in a single year. Not all bits have equal value.
Technology is driving the innovation. Technology is driving the creativity. Technology and the use of that is going to determine our workers’ ability to compete in the 21st century global marketplace.
You know, I think there are certain words like ‘illegitimate’ that should not be used to describe a person. And certainly, we have come far enough in our technology that our language can evolve, because it has an impact.
The infusion of technology and social marketing to bar spaces is a big opportunity.
Rural technology is moving from kind of the back office to where everything, every company – sales, marketing, customer acquisition, new product development, media – all industries are becoming technology industries. And it’s not information technology: it’s business technology.
I do think there is an important artistic component in what we do. As a technology company I’ve tried to really stress that.
Virtually every major technology has an initial spike of interest, then a dip, and then a long-term rise to success. The dot-com bubble is the canonical example, but there are many more.
Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks.
Product management really is the fusion between technology, what engineers do – and the business side.
Gibson wrote ‘Neuromancer’ on a typewriter, you know, before the technology he was writing about existed.
Information technology departments must spend enormous amounts of time and money worrying about integrating big computer systems with billions of pieces of customer data.
Every once in a while, a new technology, an old problem, and a big idea turn into an innovation.
We no longer think of chairs as technology; we just think of them as chairs. But there was a time when we hadn’t worked out how many legs chairs should have, how tall they should be, and they would often ‘crash’ when we tried to use them.
There is a difference between what technology enables and what historical business practices enable.
Technology will definitely solve all our problems, but in the process it will create brand new ones. But that’s O.K. because the most you can expect from life is to get to solve better and better problems.
In the world of maternal health, cell phone technology is being used to provide prenatal care, linking pregnant women to health care providers when they can’t otherwise reach healthcare facilities.
Men have become the tools of their tools.
I was a design ethicist at Google, where I studied how do you ethically steer people’s thoughts? Because what we don’t talk about is how the handful of people working at a handful of technology companies through their choices will steer what a billion people are thinking today.
Technology has opened up the music business 100-fold and provided space for all kinds of new faces.
The only constant in the technology industry is change.
Good, bad or indifferent, if you are not investing in new technology, you are going to be left behind.
Learning how to understand how technology evolves, using tools like a Technology Road Map, is what you need more than anything to ride on top of the tsunami instead of being crushed by it.
Technology and robotics are advancing and will reduce the need for workers in the future.
Our technology, our machines, is part of our humanity. We created them to extend ourselves, and that is what is unique about human beings.
The great thing that guys like Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and the Google guys have in common is they treat their technology like it’s art, and I suppose in the hands of virtuosos like them, it is.
Every young person gets so excited about new software packages and new technology.
You used to have to sing and convey emotion, and now, well, technically you can do anything with technology. It sucks for music today, but that’s why that old music feels so good to me.
Digital technology has thrown a closed shop wide open, and there are more people out there snapping away than ever before. Some of the pictures are bad, some of them are good, and many of them need some seasoning and direction.
With a fourth generation of nuclear power, you can have a technology that will burn more than 99 percent of the energy in the fuel. It would mean that you don’t need to mine uranium for the next thousand years.
People have SMS, right? It stinks. It’s a dead technology, like a fax machine left over from the Seventies, sitting there as a cash cow for carriers.
Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response.
As technology evolves, it manipulates our culture, and there’s a huge opportunity to push ourselves further. I think it actually makes ourselves maybe more human, or at least human in a different way, that we can connect together in amazingly different ways and powerful new ways.
Gunfire tracking technology is improving every day and has been successful in many jurisdictions around the country.
The scientific community should work as hard as possible to address major issues that affect our everyday lives such as climate change, infectious diseases and counterterrorism; in particular, ‘clean energy’ research deserves far higher priority. And science and technology are the prime routes to tackling these issues.
In a social context, digital technology introduces you to neighbours of the mind – people who are separated by distance, but close to you in thought and interest.
What people are now realizing is that this formula that technology destroys jobs and creates jobs, even if it’s basically true, it’s too simplistic.
I’ll be involved more with Adobe overall in terms of our technology direction and the problems we are trying to solve, working across the different business units at Adobe.
When I first read ‘Lord of the Rings,’ I wanted to see a film of it. But at that time, the technology wasn’t there; there was no such thing as CGI.
The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn’t think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.
I had two passions growing up – one was music, one was technology. I tried to play in a band for a while, but I was never talented enough to make it. And I started companies. One day came along and I decided to combine the two – and there was Spotify.
First, how do we give everyone a fair shot at opportunity and security in this new economy? Second, how do we make technology work for us, and not against us – especially when it comes to solving urgent challenges like climate change? Third, how do we keep America safe and lead the world without becoming its policeman?
The divine wisdom which requires a division of labor has sown different abilities and tendencies in human nature and has enabled human beings to carry out the duty of establishing sciences and developing technology. The fulfillment of this duty is obligatory upon humanity as a whole, though not on every individual.
The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty, and all forms of human life.
