For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology

IEEE Day is celebrated with thousands of IEEE members who join together to collaborate on ideas that leverage technology for a better tomorrow. SSCI 2022 promotes and stimulates discussion on the latest theory, algorithms, applications and emerging topics on computational intelligence. The IEEE and our members around the world support the global pursuit of peace. A large group of batteries has been installed for a research project in KTH Live-In Lab, an experimental student residence where KTH, Northvolt and Einar Mattsson conduct research together.

Because too many articles are under process in IJoST, since August 2022, new manuscripts must go through presubmission. Only manuscript that passes the presubmission will go through the reviewing process through the system. “What excites me is that we have not been doing fashion design well enough. As a true millennial, I want to change that.”

  • But more extensive use of wind and water power required another invention.
  • Technology became increasingly influenced by science, beginning a cycle of mutual advancement.
  • The development of technology may draw upon many fields of knowledge, including scientific, engineering, mathematical, linguistic, and historical knowledge, to achieve some practical result.
  • No matter where you are in your journey, IEEE can help you find your path.
  • This department got a total score of 86.89, leading in cluster A as well as being the best of all departments at the Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology.

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 . IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE is the trusted “voice” for engineering, computing, and technology information around the globe.

— Competitive video games hold vast economic potential in the U.S. and worldwide, particularly once gambling companies figure out how to interest players and spectators in betting on them, participants in an industry conference said Tuesday. FLORISSANT, Mo. — A Missouri school board decided Tuesday to shut down a grade school that sits near a contaminated creek after a study funded by law firms involved in a class-action lawsuit found high levels of radioactive material inside the school. FRANKFURT, Germany — Europe is leading the push into battery-powered cars as electric vehicles enter the mainstream — even as the industry faces challenges including supply shortages, a spotty charging network and a looming recession. Conspiracy theories spread quickly early on in the pandemic, and social media received a lot of the blame.

A modern example is the rise of communication technology, which has lessened barriers to human interaction and, as a result, has helped spawn new subcultures; the rise of cyberculture has, at its basis, the development of the Internet and the computer. Not all technology enhances culture in a creative way; technology can also help facilitate political oppression and war via tools such as guns. As a cultural activity, technology predates both science and engineering, each of which formalize some aspects of technological endeavor. 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. Some thinkers believe that this may shatter our sense of self, and have urged for renewed public debate exploring the issue more thoroughly; others fear that directed evolution could lead to eugenics or extreme social inequality.

Relation to science and engineering

Simple machines were combined into more complicated tools, such as the wheelbarrow, windmills, and clocks. A system of universities developed and spread scientific ideas and practices, including Oxford and Cambridge. Continuing improvements led to the furnace and bellows and provided, for the first time, the ability to smelt and forge gold, copper, silver, and lead – native metals found in relatively pure form in nature. The advantages of copper tools over stone, bone and wooden tools were quickly apparent to early humans, and native copper was probably used from near the beginning of Neolithic times . Eventually, the working of metals led to the discovery of alloys such as bronze and brass .

Advancing Technology for Humanity

This essential content, categorized below, is delivered through the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library. AUT’s mission is to create great graduates, and each member of our staff contributes to this. We offer exceptional learning experiences that prepare students to be successful wherever in the world their career may take them. Leif Kari, Vice President for Education, writes in this week’s post about how lifelong learning must be built long-term and integrated with regular education and research. Sigbritt Karlsson on KTH’s role in society and current and future education and research. At NAIT, we honour and acknowledge that the land on which we learn, work and live is Treaty Six territory.
