The term was previously uncommon in English and mostly referred to the academic discipline, as in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This interactive was designed, developed, and edited by McKinsey Global Publishing’s Nayomi Chibana, Zachary Enco, Richard Johnson, Stephen Landau, LaShon Malone, Kanika Punwani, and Josh Rosenfield. The associations shown on the industry heat map were derived by reviewing the news reports on each trend for references to specific companies within each of the 20 industries. Network and Computer Systems Administrators Network and computer systems administrators are responsible for the day-to-day operation of computer networks. Database Administrators and Architects Database administrators and architects create or organize systems to store and secure data.

NEW YORK — At age 82, Ted Koppel is equipped to take the long view when discussing what divides Americans. The former “Nightline” anchor, now an occasional contributor to “CBS Sunday Morning,” takes over from Jane Pauley for the first time this weekend to host a specially themed program on the topic. BENGALURU, India — India’s renewables sector is booming, with the country projected to add 35 to 40 gigawatts of renewable energy annually until 2030, enough to power up to 30 million more homes each year, a report said Thursday.

  • In this usage, technology refers to tools and machines that may be used to solve real-world problems.
  • This old-style “water battery” technology could be set for a revival.
  • 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.
  • Modern technology increasingly relies on training and education – their designers, builders, maintainers, and users often require sophisticated general and specific training.
  • The invention of the polished stone axe was a major advance that allowed large-scale forest clearance and farming.

Human ancestors have been using stone and other tools since long before the emergence of Homo sapiens approximately 200,000 years ago. 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. Technology can be most broadly defined as the entities, both material and immaterial, created by the application of mental and physical effort in order to achieve some value.
