New Technology 2014

  1. History has many examples of powerful companies that seem to be unbeatable. Then in a short time they become irrelevant due to new companies with new ideas. One of the factors in such transformation is technology. Never in history has technological change been so important in building and destroying companies.

    In this first lecture we set the tone for the course and define the themes that we will be looking at.

  3. At any given moment it is easy to look back to see how technology has changed over time. At the same time it is difficult to see what transformations are taking place in current moment, and even more difficult to see where things are going.

    In the late 19th century a revolution in science took off. It was easy to see the vast number of inventions and entrepreneurial spirit of the time. At the dawn of the 20th century, it seems that everything had been invented. Yet, in the 20th century we saw more innovations and more technologically advanced than in all history of mankind before that. Never in history have we seen such dramatic changes in the way people live and work.

    In this lecture we explore what to make of technology. We define the term we will use in the course. Terms defined are technology, product performance, and innovation to name few.

Welcome to the New Technology course 2104 channel.

The objective of this course is to look at innovations and technology trends, learn from history, and using theories of innovations to see lessons and try to see patterns so we can evaluate new technology currently emerging and interpret the impact.

In the course we look at how to keep up to date on technology trends. In particular we will look at communications, wireless devices, mobile phones and the TV, home appliances, the Internet and other consumer devices. Many of common devices are changing and taking on new roles. The course will discuss what future trends will emerge, which standards and companies will be successful, and the effects that the technology will have on society.

As a term project, students will perform research and write a research paper on technology, the possibilities and effect on society.
