EMERGING TECHNOLOGY by Mind Map: EMERGING TECHNOLOGY

1. DEFINITION

1.1. A term generally used to describe a new technology, but it may also refer to the continuing development of an existing technology; it can have slightly different meaning when used in different areas, such as media, business, science, or education.

2. TOP 10 EMERGING TECHNOLOGY

2.1. Video

2.2. 3D Printing

2.3. Gene Editing

2.4. Mobile Technology

2.5. Nano Technology

2.6. Solar Technology

2.7. Technology

2.8. Virtual Reality

2.9. Internet og Things

2.10. Artificial Intelligence

2.11. Robotics

3. CHARACTERISTICS OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES

3.1. 1. UNCERTAINTY IS HIGH The uncertainty associated with a new technology takes several forms such as uncertainty over prices or lack of knowledge about costs.

3.2. 2. NETWORKS EFFECTS The value of an emerging technology increases by increasing the number of emerging technology users

3.3. 3. UNSEEN SOCIAL AND ETHICAL IMPLICATIONS when a new ET is created or used in a particular context, its emerging ethical concerns should be highlighted in the early stages of its lifecycle in order to use this technology in a way that does not harm societal and human values such as life, health, justice, freedom, happiness, privacy and security.

3.4. 4. NOT FULLY INVESTIGATED AND RESEARCHED Most of the materials on emerging technology are white papers and technical reports produced by manufactures of emerging technology with little scientific or academic research

4. EXAMPLE OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGY

4.1. 1.Global positioning system (GPS) • It is in every part of our lives today. When we get into our cars, or in an aircraft, or even in the local commuter train, GPS plays an important role in not only getting us where we want to go but by providing information to keep us safe by tracking the movements of other vehicles and providing accurate time and distance information.

4.2. 2.MP3 . We all use it almost every day of the year, from the small player in our pockets to the largest radio stations. MP3s are the choice of a technology driven society. By using MP3s we no longer need to store vast amounts of physical medi in our homes.

4.3. 3.ROBOTICS: •The branch of technology that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing. •These technologies deal with automated machines that can take the place of humans in dangerous environments or manufacturing processes, or resemble humans in appearance and behavior

5. ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGY

5.1. ADVANTAGES

5.1.1. * It allows you to express your ideas so that others can learn from you. For the example is blog.

5.1.2. * Technology connects you with people who are very far away such as skype.

5.1.3. * Emerging technology is able to allow you to receive information almost instantaneouly. For the example is twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

5.2. DISADVANTAGES

5.2.1. * use of emerging technology can lead to identify theft if the user does not protect their virtual image.

5.2.2. * It takes away the personal aspect of life especially if learning done is online.

5.2.3. * It is very difficult to remove anything from the internet completely and thus once an idea is online. It can usually be traced back to you.
