According in technology will rapidly replace traditional classroom

According to Microsoft founder Bill Gates, “The advance of technology is based
on making it fit in so that you don’t really even notice it, so it’s part of everyday life”
(Gates). Technology is the application of scientific knowledge for a usable purpose either
in everyday life or for industrial reasons. Technology is used whenever knowledge is
implied to achieve an objective. Technology involves equipment that makes objectives
easier to accomplish (Cambridge). Technology has evolved since the start of humanity
from the invention of weapons and tools constructed out of stone, to the innovation of
computers, cell phones, televisions, and other appliances used in everyday life. The
improvement of technology has been drastically fast over the 21st century with electronics
and machines being developed and improved constantly. Advancements in technology
for instance, the internet, 3D printing, and artificial intelligence will benefit humanity
in the future through education, economy, environment, and healthcare.
Technology has increased exponentially in the education department it is used
in classrooms across the globe. Numerous past arguments on the impact of technology in
the education sector suggest that the advances in technology will rapidly replace
traditional classroom learning styles. Technological developments may change the exact
way instructors teach and students learn on all academic levels (The Economist, 2008).
However, this is a major misconception on the impact of technology in education rather
technological adaptation is enhancing and amplifying traditional teaching styles.
Technology such as the internet has made the access to updated information easier and
beneficial to students in understanding and processing the information taught in schools.
The internet has also made it easier for people of all ages to be able to receive degrees
through educational programs online. In the process, this reduces the amount of money
needed to pay for education because the resources needed are easily accessible in these
online educational programs. For instance programs like Khan Academy, Udacity, and
Chowdhury 3
others help students improve their studies and further their academic knowledge. The
emerging sophistication of computational technology for instance artificial intelligence
and robotics are reinforcing education by providing personalization at scale. According to
computer scientist Nils J. Nilsson “Artificial intelligence is that activity devoted to making
machines intelligent, and intelligence is that quality that enables an entity to function
appropriately and with foresight in its environment” (Nilsson). Classrooms are making
laptops more accessible to students especially students who are less fortunate, which
provides them with the resources need to better increase the academic knowledge.
Technology can help break the barriers of education gaps and provide better resources to
students who are especially needed. Assistive technology like the iCommunicator and
SignTel which are software systems used for people who are hearing impaired which helps
automatically translate speech into (ASL) American Sign Language (Cummings, 2011).
This helps destroy the communication gap between some students and teachers.
Technology makes it possible to get new information and improve learning skills.
Advanced Technology has positively impacted the economy and consequently
businesses across the globe. Technology is the initial force of economic development in
the world. Businesses have been able to market their goods online through the usage of the
internet. In this manner, businesses can come to the universal market effortlessly. The
remote direct venture comes about because of such promoting and publicizing.
Multinational organizations can likewise be started through the endeavors. At last, Growth
Domestic Product (GDP) development ends up plainly inescapable. (Kvochko, 2013)
Additionally, still, rivalry for businessmen has turned out to be solid to the degree that
numerous people have needed to think of creative items. The customer benefits in the
process since quality items at a focused cost are attainable. In addition, customers have the
opportunity to access an extensive variety of items easily. Jobs in information and
Chowdhury 4
Communication Technology (ICT) have increased due to the development of new tech.
(Kvochko, 2013) A few people have demonstrated that innovation prompts undesired
movements from the work escalated industry to capital serious ones, there are many
openings for work that have been made through the stage. Business visionaries have
possessed the capacity to make items and market them without important utilizing a ton of
capital. Efficiency has also been achieved in the workplace. Most employers have been
able to outsource work through the online platform and hence cutting down on costs and at
the same time taking advantage of the expertise from various professionals across the
globe. Communication and storage of data at the workplace have also been made possible
through technology.

Artificial intelligence is assured to have a profound influence on employment and the
workplace. Regardless of the numerous debates that AI technology will negatively replace
human labor and cause an increase in unemployment. Artificial intelligence is actually
improving human labor through the programming of industrial robotics. Figure 1 depicts the
Chowdhury 5
increase of industrial robots and artificial intelligence used globally. According to Stanford
2016 report
“AI will likely replace tasks rather than jobs in the near term, and will also create new
kinds of jobs. But the new jobs that will emerge are harder to imagine in advance than
the existing jobs that will likely be lost. Changes in employment usually happen
gradually, often without a sharp transition, a trend likely to continue as AI slowly
moves into the workplace. A spectrum of effects will emerge, ranging from small
amounts of replacement or augmentation to complete replacement” (Stanford
University, 2016).
In the end, there has been a reduction of unemployment rates and achievement of
productivity at the workplace, which further stimulates economic growth and development.
Despite the claims that advanced technology is responsible for many of the globes
ecological issues, technology has also served to enhance the state of the planet. From the rise
of technology in the workplace, many Information and Communication Technology
organizations that have been designing “greener technology” to tackle the detrimental impact
that computers and related technology have on the environment. Organizations like the green
grid which consist of Information Technology IT companies and professionals from across
the globe are devising ways to refine the way energy is used by IT businesses and their
facilities (IJASE). Because of technology, the paper utilization on an entire has diminished.
All records and information are currently put away in PCs or computers dispensing with the
utilization of paper. This thus prompts cutting of a less number of trees. Deforestation has
been controlled because of a specific degree, permitting rich soil stores to be held set up.
Plenty of issues, for example, surges, soil disintegration, and so forth are straightforwardly
connected with deforestation. Green Technology has thought of strategies for low power
utilization. This incorporates gaseous petrol, biofuel, and so on and machines with a higher
Chowdhury 6
productivity rate (IJASE). The technology that enables humanity to control solar energy,
wind energy, and water energy is miraculous. Not exclusively do they decrease the utilization
of non-inexhaustible assets of energy, they additionally help lessen contamination in the
earth.
Technological advancements are transforming the way healthcare is being delivered.
The condition of technology in the medical industry is constantly developing and rapidly
improving the quality of life. Advancements in biotechnology are innovating the medical
field. Recent technological advancement in 3D printing or additive manufacturing has
enabled the development of cells. “3D bio-printing is being applied to regenerative medicine
to address the need for tissues and organs suitable for transplant” (Murphy, 2014). 3D
printing has also provided essential necessities to disabled people. According to the Amputee
Coalition a national advocacy group in the United States today there are about two million
people with prosthetic limbs
Bespoke Innovations, a small San Francisco-based company recently acquired by 3D
Systems, designs and 3D prints custom prosthetic limbs. “The way most artificial
limbs are made hasn’t changed much over the years— you take a piece of foam, shave
it into a rough approximate of a person’s leg, then make a mold and stamp it out,”
said Scott Summit, a co-founder of the company. The science of artificial limbs is
making a big leap forward thanks to improved medical imaging technology, better
design software, and improved materials. 3D printing offers amputees and doctors a
previously unheard-of level of customization. Bespoke’s 3D printed limbs are
designed to fit exactly the shape of the wearers’ bodies and lifestyles and to appeal to
their sense of style. Bespoke’s process begins with scanning both a patient’s “sound
side” leg and their current prosthetic leg. The data is modeled into a computer design
file (Fabricated: The New World of 3D Printing, 2010).

Prosthetic limbs are an essential necessity for amputees and others. Artificial intelligence also
has played a significant role in healthcare services. For AI advancements, medicinal services
have for quite some time been seen as a promising space. AI-based applications could
enhance wellbeing results and personal satisfaction for a great many individuals in the
coming years—however just in the event that they pick up the trust of specialists, medical
caretakers, and patients, and if strategy, administrative, and business hindrances are expelled
(Stanford University, 2016). Prime applications incorporate clinical choice help, persistent
checking and instructing, computerized gadgets to aid surgery or patient care, and
administration of human services frameworks. Late victories, for example, mining online
networking to surmise conceivable wellbeing dangers, machine figuring out how to anticipate
patients in danger, and mechanical technology to help surgery, have extended a feeling of
plausibility for AI in medicinal services. Enhancements in techniques for cooperating with
therapeutic experts and patients will be a basic test. As in different spaces, information is a
key empowering influence. There has been a colossal forward jump in gathering helpful
information from individual observing gadgets and versatile applications, from electronic
wellbeing records (EHR) in clinical settings and, to a lesser degree, from robots intended to
help with restorative methodology and healing facility operations (Stanford University,
2016). Be that as it may, utilizing this information to empower all the more finely-grained
diagnostics and medications for both people patients and patient populaces have
demonstrated troublesome.
Advanced technologies in the area of information systems, education, and medical
fields provide businesses, engineers, doctor, professors, and students with extraordinary
opportunities for improvement and development. 3D printing, Artificial intelligence, and
internet are innovative techniques which have the potential of achieving cost savings and
productivity improvements as well as enabling new developments in the future. The basic
Chowdhury 8
purpose of the paper was to review the areas where advanced technologies have significantly
affected and renovated. Advanced technology will strive to impact the way humanity lives
now and in the future.
