The discovery of fire was described by Charles Darwin as “possibly the greatest ever made by man.” Archeological, dietary, and social evidence point to “continuous fire-use” at least 1.5 Mya. Fire, fueled with wood and charcoal, allowed early humans to cook their food to increase its digestibility, improving its nutrient value and broadening the number of foods that could be eaten. The cooking hypothesis proposes that the ability to cook promoted an increase in hominid brain size, though some researchers find the evidence inconclusive. Archeological evidence of hearths was dated to 790 kya; researchers believe this is likely to have intensified human socialization and may have contributed to the emergence of language. At AUT we know that an influential lecturer or a memorable educational experience can open up new possibilities.
- Estimates on the advent of artificial general intelligence vary, but half of machine learning experts surveyed in 2018 believe that AI will “accomplish every task better and more cheaply” than humans by 2063, and automate all human jobs by 2140.
- October 7, 2022 • Musk says he’d loosen rules against spreading misinformation, allow former President Donald Trump back on Twitter, shake up the company’s business model and find new revenue sources.
- Able to create printed and digital visual communication design work that has added value and aesthetics, to overcome identity problems, mass communication, and competition problems by stakeholders.
It has spawned the dystopian and futuristic cyberpunk genre, which juxtaposes futuristic technology with societal collapse, dystopia or decay. Notable cyberpunk works include William Gibson’s Neuromancer novel, and movies like Blade Runner, and The Matrix. The earliest known revolt against technology was Luddism, a pushback against early automation in textile production.
The Space Age began with the launch of Sputnik 1 in 1957, and later the launch of crewed missions to the moon in the 1960s. Organized efforts to search for extraterrestrial intelligence have used radio telescopes to detect signs of technology use, or technosignatures, given off by alien civilizations. In medicine, new technologies were developed for diagnosis , treatment , and research .
Considering the uncertainty of the COVID-19 outbreak, The 12th ICGT 2022 will be held fully hybrid on October 26-27, 2022. The scientific programs will include keynote lectures, plenary lectures and invited lectures in parallel sessions. All participants will have virtual access to join the conferences and all authors will have opportunities to present work either virtually or on-site, in Malang Indonesia.
The term was previously uncommon in English and mostly referred to the academic discipline, as in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It is predated in use by the Ancient Greek τέχνη, used to mean ‘knowledge of how to make things’, which encompassed activities like architecture.

The humanities philosophy of technology is concerned with the “meaning of technology for, and its impact on, society and culture.” In physics, the discovery of nuclear fission in the Atomic Age led to both nuclear weapons and nuclear power. Computers were invented and later shifted from analog to digital in the Digital Revolution. Information technology, particularly optical fiber and optical amplifiers led to the birth of the Internet, which ushered in the Information Age.
Of God and MachinesThe future of artificial intelligence is neither utopian nor dystopian—it’s something much more interesting. The performance also differs starkly from funds that pick stocks, particularly those that focus on high-growth technology companies. Over the last 10 years has created an entirely new world in which viruses can replicate. While in 1989, viruses were primarily spread by “sneakernet,” as users walked diskettes from machine to machine, modern viruses … are capable of spreading around the world in the blink of a digital eye.
Medical technology is another type, and includes ventilators, medication, and MRIs. Communication technology is the third type, and includes all types of tools used to communicate, from telegrams to telephones. Electronic technology includes technology that requires electricity, from dishwashers to blenders to various electronic devices. Finally, industrial and manufacturing technologies advance ways of producing objects used by people around the world.
The earliest methods of stone tool making, known as the Oldowan “industry,” date back to at least 2.3 million years ago, with the earliest direct evidence of tool usage found in Ethiopia within the Great Rift Valley, dating back to 2.5 million years ago. This era of stone tool use is called the Paleolithic, or “Old stone age,” and spans all of human history up to the development of agriculture approximately 12,000 years ago. In 2005, futurist Ray Kurzweil claimed the next technological revolution would rest upon advances in genetics, nanotechnology, and robotics, with robotics being the most impactful of the three. Genetic engineering will allow far greater control over human biological nature through a process called directed evolution.
