  23. 23. Use and Misuse of Technology
  24. 24. Use and Misuse of Technology • Huge advances in technology in recent years have been so successful that people take them for granted. • In fact technology is noticed only when it goes wrong. In engineering and Technology success often means anonymity. • As Engineers and Scientists, only our failures bring us to the public’s attention!
  25. 25. Use and Misuse of Technology Tools, devices and products of technology are meant for useful applications. They are developed by persons with good intentions. When they are in the user’s hand, they obey only the user. Here lies the difficulty.
  26. 26. Use and Misuse of Technology Whether Hi-tech, Low Tech or mundane, results could be devastating if the user wants it to be so. A Hi-Tech computer can create useful data or destroy it, or develop a useful software or a destructive malware. Even a mundane tool like a rope can save a life or hang one.
  27. 27. Use and Misuse of Technology It is foolish to think that intelligent systems can prevent the misuse of Science and Technology. ( Except that it could be an intelligent business proposition) It is a human issue and not a technology impediment.
  28. 28. Use and Misuse of Technology Even over use of technology is a misuse. To state that Internet is important in today’s world is a bit like suggesting that air is useful for breathing. It is prudent to make this analogy workable only within a balanced social environment.
  29. 29. Use and Misuse of Technology Ethics, Values, Culture and Education do play an important role in matters related to use and misuse of technology. While there is good awareness on the issue of misuse of technology, the solutions are not scientific or technological. They are wholly humanistic. If we fail on this, there could soon be an Invention to end all Inventions. Thank you Partial Reference: IET Website
