How does technology affect society?
Technology affects society because it may help us it determines how much we deal with on daily basis in the work world and at home. Technology can be a good thing or a bad thing. Computers help organize important documents where as nuclear weapons and such other destructive forms of technology may harm or kill us all. Technology and how it affects society is all in the eye the beholder. Only you can really decide if, for you, technology is a good thing or bad thing.

consider that u don't know how to do anything. what is ur future? consider that u know how to do anything. where can u go from here?
U could add more Information technology has affected society in a variety of ways, both in a positive and negative manner. It easily connects people from across the globe but …it also reduces personal social interaction. It has also provided a faster way to access information and help in research studies.
science technology is important because if we dont have science technology then we cant invent gadgets that we use to make hand work easier like computer,cellphone and other t…hings that is been invent by science technology
It increases road safety.
Technology has become one of the basic needs for human beings. It has uncountable advantages and disadvantages are a few. I don't think that it can be considered a threat or r…isk for society or humanity.
Society depends on oil production, so science can be useful when it comes to developing an oil based technology. Planning ahead can help scientists discover and alleviate …problems with oil production,
Since the start of 2000's, technology has been slowly dominating our old ways of doing things. We use microwaves and ovens to heat our foods other than using fires, or even th…e sun. The relationship is that technology RUNS our society. The big corporations depend on technology as we do at home. And as time goes bye we will continue to become even more dependent to technology as is progresses.
Solid waste management , bio fuel , water recycling and disposal industrial waste technologies can be used to protect the environment otherwise it can produce negative affects…. Society get many advantages like products , jobs and many of by -products
It makes things easy!
it determines how much we deal with on daily basis in work world and at home
Digital technology affects society in many ways. The ubiquitous nature of cellular phones, and the numerous things they can do, is just one way. The interconnectedness of the …entire world via the internet is another. The mechanization of labor in the world's factories is another instance of how technology affects society. Most aspects of daily life in 2013 are touched by technology, and our lives are inherently affected by such a change.
Industrialization and new technology affected the economy and society in a significant manner. There was improved production and enhanced efficiency which led to growth of… economy and better societies.
Technology and Science have to be looked at individually. Technology, when though of, is what man has created ("tech" means craft). Technology can govern what is said about a…rt or applied sciences. Technology affects our society because technology is all around us. It is what allows us to advance forward through our eras. Primitive technology could be considered hammers made by Neanderthals. Science is very different from technology. Science is not what we can create, but is more focused on our world and how it functions. Learning how a bird flies is science, but mimicking a bird through aviation would be technology. Science is about gathering knowledge through a systematic perspective and creating theories and laws to prove what we have learned. Science IS our world, and that is how it affects the world. Science and technology are just words created by humans and therefore humans decided what is technology and what is science.
technology helps us in life to learn about society.
it has affected it by giving us a new generation of technology and now that we mostly use computers everything is much easier.
The first thing most Americans think about healthcare is not death and disaster. We're good at denial. Nonetheless, the fragmented non-system we use for healthcare is based pr…imarily on responding to the life-threatening risks of death. It is focused on saving lives and curing or stabilizing diseases, and only secondarily on disease prevention or improving quality of life. Nor is it not just death prevention at the end of life; death, in the form of risks, underlies medicine from the point of view of both patients and physicians from the moment of birth, even from the moment of conception. Death is personal; disasters affect populations. It is not uncommon to portray American healthcare itself as a disaster. At least since World War II, we have sought to reform a system that is itself widely viewed in disaster imagery, perhaps the most popular being that out healthcare system is a "train wreck." A good example is President Lyndon Johnson's response to what he described as the "bombshell" Medical proposal to go along with his proposed Medicare plan. He explained his support for both proposals to Wilbur Cohen, the person who would take the lead in drafting them (with Wilber Mills) for his administration. He told Cohen the story about the railroad giving an intelligence test for switchmen. The question was: "What would you do if a train was coming east going sixty miles per hour, and you looked over your shoulder and another one was coming the west going sixty miles an hour?" …and the fellow said, "I'd go get my brother." And he said, "Why would you get your brother?" And he said "Because he hasn't ever seen a train wreck." The image of a train wreck can be used to mobilize action, but train wreck imagery can be overwhelmed by other metaphors mobilized to resist reform. As I write this chapter, the House and Senate have each reported bills out of committee, but have yet to debate them. President Obama is committed to increasing health insurance access for Americans, but the longer he and his allies delay endorsing a specific plan, the less likely its success becomes, because financial stakeholders in present system will have time to find ways to frustrate meaningful reform. Lawrence Brown has suggested that the metaphor blocking health reform to date is the "safety net," which includes emergency departments and community health centers, because this imaginary net is seen as protecting even the uninsured from major health disaster. Similarly, William Sage has observed that we have yet to identify a health systems metaphor with traction. Metaphors referencing two struggling American industries, automobiles ("So you want Chevrolet or Cadillac coverage?") and airlines (as a metaphor for patient safety), have, for example, failed to capture the public's imagination. Shortly after the demise of President Bill Clinton's healthcare plan, I suggested that both the military and the market metaphors in American medicine had become counterproductive, and that they should be replaced by the ecological metaphor. This has not happened (at least not yet), and the Obama administration has continued to cling to the mast of the Clinton's 1993-94 framing of the healthcare financing reform debate as shipwreck again threatens us. Of course, it is not just a replacement metaphor we need, but one that can help us confront and modify the major characteristics of American healthcare. The inspiration for American healthcare is perhaps best embodied in Damien Hirst's 2007 diamond-encrusted platinum human skull. The skull was cast from that of an 18th-century man; the original teeth are retained and the skull is coated with 8,600 diamonds. Hirst calls the diamond skull "For the Love of God" and says he was inspired by similarly jeweled Aztec skulls. As a metaphor, the skull displays all four of what I take to be the most enduring and problematic characteristics of American healthcare (and that of America itself): it was wasteful, technologically driven, individualistic, and death-denying. Nonetheless, skulls are not inspirational, even diamond frosted one, and this one has a strange allure that may subvert rather than promote reform. We need a plan more than we need a metaphor, but a plan without a metaphor is unlikely to be politically (or even economically) viable. What should it be?
