  21. • Fiber-optic technology is a method of transmitting information from one place to another by sending pulses of light through an optical fiber. The light forms an electromagnetic carrier wave that is modulated to carry information. • communications in core networks in the developed world. Because of its advantages over electrical transmission, optical fibers have largely replaced copper wire 25
  22. more than any other invention, computer technology is still evolving, which means that it continues to impact society in new ways  the first electronic computers made significant contributions in the 1940’s ▪ COLOSSUS – used for code breaking in World War II ▪ ENIAC – performed calculations and simulations that led to the development of nuclear technology and Cold War science  currently, we live in an "information economy", with computers central to business and innovation 27 technology has become so pervasive in daily life, it is difficult to imagine life without it e.g., monetary transactions  cash is frequently being replaced with credit or debit cards  computerized banking networks enable the immediate electronic transfer of funds  ATM machines allow people to access their money around the clock from any location  all this has discouraged traditional theft, but has inspired new forms of illegal activity
  23. Computers in Everyday Tasks  modern life also depends on thousands of less obvious, hidden computer applications  embedded processors are computer chips that are built into appliances and machinery to control their workings  they account for more than 90% of all computer processors  the average U.S. home contains 50 to 100 embedded processors in ovens, television remote controls, cordless phones, automatic thermostats, …  automobiles employ embedded processors to control a wide variety of components 28
  24. Internet/Web for Information • traditional media have approached the Internet in a variety of ways • some provide limited services online for free • e.g.,, • others provide full services with a fee • e.g., Encyclopedia Britannica sells access over the Web 29 • independent media organizations have utilized the Web to present stories and opinions that might not otherwise reach a mainstream audience
  25.

Internet/Web for Communication 31 many users were originally drawn to the Internet by the availability of electronic mail and newsgroups  in 2002, 93% of all Internet users communicated via email 31 billion email messages were sent and received each day  the number of emails is expected to reach 60 billion by 2006 Internet Service Providers (ISPs) manage email accounts with other services  e.g., AOL, msn, Microsoft Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail  programs such as Microsoft Outlook provide an intuitive user interface for sending and receiving email messages
  27. 32 INTERNET/WEB FOR COMMERCE Another popular function of the web is to facilitate electronic commerce or e-commerce. Online shopping has numerous advantages for customers.  You can make purchases from home.  It is easy to comparision shops.  $3.93 billion in sales in 2002
  28. Society • Society can be defined as a group, large or small, of people in a particular place and time who are linked by common goals and interests. • Society is affected greatly by both science and technology. • How will society be affected by the scientific and technological ideas of airplanes we just discussed?
  29. People can travel long distances in a short period of time. Society will want to know the airplane is safe before they use it. Laws and standards will help ensure people’s safety.
  30. Science and technology have many impacts, both positive and negative, on the environment. How will the environment be affected by the scientific and technological ideas of airplanes we just discussed?
  31. Affects on the Environment O Increased pollution O Increased use of fuel O As humans travel globally they carry and spread disease from one area of the world to another. O Ecosystems destroyed to build runways. O Affects of pesticides on organisms other than the crops sprayed.
  32. TECHNOLOGY: You will need it…
  33. Conclusion  The importance and uses of technology in all walks of life is evident on going through the previous passages in this project. It is an inevitable device in the present day life and having unimaginable uses and potential.
