The question was asked to select a technology that’s in use now and describe how it may impact how we live in 20 years. I’m choosing to talk about cell phone technology and where it may be. The phones of the future will be more powerful and advanced, what we think is new today will be obsolete in the not so distant future. In the past we had cordless home phones which started giving us the freedom to move throughout and a little outside the house. There were also the old huge bulky cell phones that resembled big walkie talkies. We also had pagers and pay phones that allowed us to have even greater mobility. Now we all have cell phones and think there the greatest thing since sliced bread, but low and behold we haven’t seen anything yet. Today’s cell phones just about rule how we communicate with each other, in the future besides talking they will rule how we communicate. The smart phones of today will no longer be in existence as we know it. I think that in the future, instead of hand held phones they will be worn as a watch with an earpiece and be powered by sun and moon light. The phones of the future will allow us to project the caller’s image in full view and watch 3D. We’ll be able to program most if not all of our household functions into the phone such as locking unlocking doors and windows. They’ll able to turn on the oven, dishwasher, TV, appliances, and almost everything in a house. We’ll also be able to program the phones to control various features in our cars. The phones of the future will also allow us to do more things such as printing, sending and receiving faxes (if that’s still in use) and scan documents. They’ll also give us the capabilities to voice command emails instead of having to type them out. There won’t be any more dropped calls the pictures we take will be instantly downloaded to print or show in 3D. In the future cell phones…...

...Paradigm Shift in our Society & Economy Due to Improvements in Transportation Throughout time, our society has experienced growth in our ability to import – export goods, increase our opportunity to travel, and overall develop our economy due largely to advancements in transportation. According to Dr. Jean-Paul Rodrigue, transportation has brought about “revolutionary changes. Concerns a completely new technology that creates new markets and growth opportunities for transportation and the economy as well.” (p. 1) When Americans left the settled towns and cities in the east, they moved across the country in wagons and on horseback, which took nearly six months and was deadly dangerous. According to the Oregon California Trails Association, “trappers and fur traders originally traveled the Oregon Trail.” (home page octa-trails.org) The need for trade of goods and services continued to grow. According to Dr. Jean-Paul Rodrigue, Even stagecoaches, were not sufficient to accommodate the growing demands on freight transportation. (Ch. 2 Concept 1) Our society and our growing economy demanded more goods, faster. The world saw a shift in the ability to transport goods and increase productivity in everything from mining to passenger transportation with the invention of the steam engine. Dr. Jean-Paul Rodrigue states that “Much of the credit of developing the first efficient steam engine in 1765 is attributed to the British Engineer Watt.” (Ch.2 Concept 2). By the......

...Paradigm Shift Jonathan Park Problem Solving Theory ITT Abstract There are many technologies that have drastically change the world that we live in. One of those technologies is Nanotechnology. Nanotechnology refers to materials, applications and processes designed to work on extremely tiny scales. Nanotechnology is being used every day in healthcare products, technology, cosmetics, sports equipment, food and agriculture, and usually people are none the wiser that they are using products with nanotechnology in it. This paper will discuss three different impacts that nanotechnology has had in our lives today and then how it might change how we live in the future. Paradigm Shift Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. Nanotechnology has many implementations but the three specific ones this paper will talk about are the effects that it has had on the environmental, agricultural, and technological aspects of our lives today and how it may even grow to change our lives in the future. Nanotechnology was first introduced by Nobel laureate Professor Richard P. Feynman in a 1959 lecture titled "There's plenty of room at the bottom,” at this time however nanotechnology was based on theoretical speculation. Since then nanotechnology has become a reality and is now, today among the fastest growing areas of science. In order to improve the environment nanotechnology is currently being used in several applications, such as......

...Doe 12/16/2013 Problem Solving Theory Unit 1 Research Paper 1: Paradigm Shift Femto-Photography Introduction There are many cameras today that do generally the same thing, either zooming in or enhancing clarity, but in roughly 20 years’ time they all will still be doing those same simplistic functions. What if I told you about a new in-prototype-development-stages technology called “Femto-Photography” that allows you to capture light at a half of a trillionth of a second [1]. Summary of Key Findings With Femto-Photography it is possible to “see around objects and walls” [1]. Normally when you fire a laser pulse at a wall, nothing crazy happens. But, with Femto-Photography, you’d be able to see that laser pulse hit the wall, propagate, bounce off of any objects within that room, hit said wall from a different point, and detect that there was/were objects or people in the room [1]. In 20 years’ time, this technology could be insanely useful and effective in traffic accident scenarios, emergency rescue situations with firefighters, and the list goes on and on. With Femto-Photography, it is also possible to “see through objects” [1]. In 20 years’ time there could be an enormous amount of possible applications of this use, between checking the ripeness of a fruit without touching it, x-raying a person’s body without the use of radiation, and many other applications, the possibilities are virtually limitless [1]. With Femto-Photography, scientific......

...Paradigm Shift: Televisions Think of a paradigm shift as a change from one way of thinking to another. Home entertainment has advanced rapidly over the course of the last decade. From VHS to DVD, CD players, surround sound systems, and televisions. The most common technology people have in their homes is the TV. A television is a system for transmitting visual images and sound that are reproduced on screens, generally used to broadcast programs for entertainment, information, and education. Televisions have evolved from the big boxes with antennas on top to a sleek more attractive trend that people will spend anywhere from $500 to $5000 on. Within the next two decades I believe that today’s television will be in a museum. In twenty years I presume that the impact of televisions will rapidly advance. The television, though used generally for entertainment, will soon be used for more than just that. Social dynamics and synergistic experiences will drive more event-based viewing. While the viewing landscape grows increasingly fractured, consumers still want to be part of the collective social experience of events such as the Super Bowl or the Grammy Awards. If content creators can build a strong social experience around a program (e.g., gaming and other social second screen experiences) viewers will not want to be left out and be driven back to the screen. Bingeing will drive more innovation in measurement and personalization. “M&E companies will need to measure......

...Paradigm Shift ITT Technical Institute A paradigm shift is the term used by Thomas Kuhn in his book “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions” written in 1962 to describe a change in basic assumptions within the ruling theory of science. It is in contrast of his idea of what normal science was. What is a paradigm? A paradigm is perception, values and practices shared by a particular group and how that group organizes itself. That would make a paradigm shift a change in how things are seen and viewed and how they will change the way that particular group reacts with the shift. A technological example of a technological paradigm shift could be a personal computer and how it has evolved and changed society. Keep in mind throughout this paper my shift is based on the personal computer and not to be confused with the first computer invented. A personal computer can be defined by its size and capabilities that allow it to be more convenient for the end user. The first personal computer that was commercially available was the Programma 101. It was produced by an Italian company named Olivetti. It was invented by an engineer named, Pier Giorgio Perotto at a cost of $3200 in 1965. It allowed users to access applications such as word processing, data management, financial matters, and computer games. The term personal computer is described as a machine that used a microprocessor to execute applications. However, computers didn’t evolve to meet the standards of society until the...

...Paradigm Shift Problem Solving Theory Research Paper 1 October 2, 2014 What is a Paradigm Shift? A paradigm shift is defined as a “radical change in an underlying theory” (taketheleap.com). Thomas Kuhn in 1962 describes Paradigm shift as when new knowledge replaces old knowledge (www.taketheleap.com) In technology there has been a definite paradigm shift. Globally we use technology in our daily lives. The Paradigm shift in technology began at the creation of the PC, following internet. Technology impacts our personal, business, education and recreation. (www.taketheleap.com) Just think of the baby boomers and older adults. They have had to adjust to a huge paradigm shift in technology throughout their life time. Going from only having access to radio, to black and white TV, to Colored TV, now HD and 3D. To function in society it is almost impossible to do without some sort of technological device. Whether it be a tablet, laptop, PC or smartphone, we need them in our daily lives. This can be frustrating to the baby boomers. They have had to completely change the way they are able to get through their daily lives, banking, paying bills, email, social network media. To some it makes sense it is easier, everything is at your fingertips. Our children on the other hand have no idea what it is like not to have technology. When our children begin school and they are used to learning programs on computers, phones and tablets, now have to use a pencil and paper to apply......

...Anthony Altaher ITT Technical Institute Problem Solving Theory (GS1140) Unit 1Research Paper 1: Paradigm Shift Mr. Moses Navarro 16 - Sept. 2013   Ocular Technology In this paper we will be discussing Ocular Technology with primary focus on the new Oculus Rift. The Oculus Rift is being developed as a three d virtual reality headset for gaming. This new technology is cutting edge because of its interfacing, head tracking at six degrees of freedom ultra low latency, new field of view range at one hundred ten degrees diagonal ninety degrees horizontal, a top resolution of twelve eighty by eight hundred, multiple device inputs, multiple operation platforms, and all the only weighing two tenths of a kilogram. This set of glasses could potently revolutionize the way we see and interact within our world. With this technology is currently mimicking our eye, head, hand movements and latency between our Nero brain receptors, all this means is that the possibilities are endless as to what this technology can offer us. One potentially lifesaving impact could be the incorporation of this device into the military arena. Wars happen and what if we could potentially save lives and unnecessary ricks with this device. This could be achieved by giving the solders a complete human sensory system virtual experience of simulated combat scenarios. What this could mean to our government is huge. We could lower training costs, lessen the possibility of training deaths, and allow our......

...Unit 1: Paradigm Shift Tablets The technology I chose to write about is fairly new. While it has not been around as long as maybe Televisions or Radios, it has definitely made a huge impact on our lives today. I chose to write about Tablets and how they started and where they could go in the future. The first Tablet was not in fact created by Apple. Apple just took the idea and vastly improved upon it. The first tablet was actually introduced in 1987 with the Linus Write-Top which was essentially a tablet that had handwriting recognition software. Basically you could hand-write on it and the tablet could read it. The first tablet computer was introduced in 1989 by Jeff Hawkins, the founder of Palm Computing. It was called the GridPad, and it ran MS-DOS though the idea was mostly ignored by the general public. A few other attempts were made through the years. Apple branched off and came out with the Newton MessagePad in 1993 which wasn’t really aimed at replacing the home PC, but more of a Personal Digital Assistant or PDA. Then in 2000, Microsoft released its first tablet computer, and later in 2002 the Microsoft XP tablet was released which ran its own version of Windows XP. Then the market for tablets really skyrocketed when Apple released the iPad in 2010. It had a touchscreen which was very popular on the iPad Touch and the iPhone. This created a huge market for tablets which got all sorts of companies trying to release their own. For example the Samsung Galaxy......

The aim of the interviews were informal conversations about leadership capacity, change and building innovation and resilience to change within the bank and it’s various business units. Background As the global economies scrabbled to recover, they were also redefining themselves. Gippel (2012) citing Lo, 2011) talks about ‘a new world order’ and the need for a complete ‘ paradigm shift’ to understand and cope with the new way people – customers and shareholders – see the banking world. The dominant values and norms of banking world that Durkheim (1893) describes are trustworthiness, tradition and conservative values. Up until 2007, the description still suited the large Australian financial institutions, which were by definition stable, dependable organisations, that were heavily regulated and traditional. Post GFC, Australian banking and it’s reputation had a fundamental shift. Although a heavily regulated environment saved the local industry from heavy losses, the culture of the sector was called into question. In this environment, a radical change of culture, inward and externally, was needed, and a different style of leadership was needed to bring the change about. Since 2007, the bank has undergone wave after wave of leadership change, and has recently......

...Paradigm Shift A Paradigm Shift is defined as “a radical change in underlying beliefs or theory.” In years past the human race has been a part of many paradigm shifts particularly in the world of electronics. My paper will discuss one of the biggest paradigm shifts in electronics, when vacuum tube circuits were replaced by the transistor IC circuits. In the early days of electronics and primitive computers, vacuum tubes were used as the first digital switches. Depending on the material that the conductive core of the tube was made of determined how quickly the tube would open or close (open means no current flow or a zero in binary, and when the contacts were closed, voltage would pass thru the tube creating a 1 in binary). The machines that housed these tubes were physically wired together in series, parallel or a combination of both in order to achieve different switching effects and controlled outcomes of the circuit interactions. Sir John Ambrose Fleming FRS was an English electrical engineer and physicist. He is known for inventing the first vacuum tube among other items that still contribute to the world of electronics today. The issues with the first generation vacuum tubes were that they gave off tremendous heat, failed on a daily basis, and consumed massive amounts of electrical energy and by today’s processor standards were terribly slow in switching speeds. In 1948 John Bardeen, William Shockley and Walter Houser-Brattain at Bell Labs are credited as......

...Tyler Kirsch Abstract The capabilities and Real-life applications of 3-D printing from now to the future Paradigm shift Future of 3-D Introduction Today’s world is fast paced and everyone wants everything right now. Although productivity has been increasing exponentially since the industrial revolution, we humans have invented a new way of building. As of now, we build things with our hands using material we purchase from a hardware store, which in turn was made in a factory. Now, we have created the 3-D printer. The 3-D printer is a machine that can create an object by solidifying material (usually powder or liquid) in very thin layers on three axis’s, using a selective laser sintering process, to build the work piece. (Encyclopædia Britannica, September, 2014a) Summary of Key Findings The 3-D printer has the ability to change the way we manufacture our everyday essentials. We could potentially be printing out our own kitchenware, decorative figurines, vases, and essentially parts the can connect together to give you a much more intricate piece. Having a 3-D printer also opens up a world of opportunities everyone, even those without degrees in drafting and designing. Businesses could drastically increase production rate as well as make more precise manufacturing specifications to fit consumer needs. Production has also reached the point of portability, providing businesses to the ability to physically take their workshops to the site and have the customer’s request...

...Paradigm Shift-GPS A technology currently in use is the global positioning system or GPS. The GPS is a network of about thirty satellites orbiting the earth. The satellites emit radio signals that can be received by anyone with a GPS device. (How Does GPS work?, April 2012) These devices are available through cell phones and handheld GPS units to name a few. For example, your GPS enabled cell phone can receive signals from the satellites which calculates your location by how long it takes for the messages to arrive between satellites. (How Does GPS Work?, April 2012) GPS is used daily today. A common use is for it is to find an exact location. Many people have upgraded to GPS from maps made of paper. Today a handheld GPS device can show you turn-by-turn directions as well as a satellite view. Today's GPS devices are also equipped with audio which tells you which direction to go. The GPS has impacted the medical field by helping them to improve faster response times. Emergency medical workers are able to locate injured people much faster via medical helicopters or ambulance by receiving their location or address and being able to get to them directly. The same goes for law enforcement to aide in 911 calls. Many car service companies generate more revenue because of GPS. Once again faster response time play a key role. For example, a taxi company can locate their customers faster as well as the customer's destination. ...

...GS1140 Unit 1: Research Paper 1: Paradigm Shift Introduction: In this research paper I will be talking about cell phone technology and how I think it might change the way we live in 20 years. I will be talking about how cell phones will be used in the medical field by doctors, how we will use them for entertainment purposes, and how we will use them for connecting to our family in everyday life. I will also talk about what might prevent this technology from advancing and become obsolete. Cell phones have come a long way since the first call was made April 3, 1973 by Martin Cooper. The first cell phones were big and bulky, so big that they weighed a little more than 2lbs. They were so big that some were carried in small brief cases, and others looked like a brick with an antenna. The first cell phones were something that the very elite or very wealthy had, because they were very expensive going for about $2500-$3000. The first cell phones only had about 30-45 minutes of talk time and took about 10-12 hours to charge the battery. The old cells phones did one thing and that was to make phone calls very expensive call. They didn’t even store any number/contacts in them. Today it seems that everybody has a cell phone. Today there are more than 5 billion cell phones in use today. The phones today come in just about every GS1140 color and in a bunch of different styles. They are nowhere as expensive as they once were. Today’s cell phones have more memory,......

...ITT Tech Gary Sims Jr. a significant change in the paradigm of any discipline or group: “Putting skilled, tenured teachers in failing schools would cause a paradigm shift in teaching and education.” 08 Fall Paradigm Shift A Paradigm Shift is not just a small change in science, or the modification of a theory. It is a scientific revolution and completely changes the way in which science looks at the world. It often dictates how the public looks at the world. A paradigm shift is often the result of scientists working at the fringe of the paradigm, performing research that most other researchers feel is a little misguided, or a dead end. In most instances, this view is correct but, every so often, a scientist has a revelation. More often than not, they feel the weight of scientific and public opinion, and become ridiculed. However, slowly but surely, other scientists try out the research, and a few lost voices in the wilderness increase into a new way of thinking. For example, explorations of chaos theory took a long time to take root, and his ideas were marginalized, because they lay outside the established classical paradigm of physics. Early Chaos Theorists found difficulties in receiving funding, finding supervisors, and finding journals willing to publish their research. Kuhn’s paradigm definition is a little more than a theory, although the terms are often used interchangeably. It is a complete and overall view of a phenomenon, often relying upon some basic......

Research Paper 1: Paradigm Shift

...Research Paper 1: Paradigm Shift Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System is created by Second Sight design for people that are suffering from blindness. It starts with an epiretinal prosthesis implant which is an implant placed on top of the retina. Also attach is an antenna, electronics case, and an electrode array. Those parts are than connected to glasses, cable, and video processing unit. How it works is a small camera in the glasses capture an image than is processed by VPU that is attached to the belt. It than sends the instruction back through the cable to the glasses. They are than wirelessly transmitted to the antenna in the implant. Which go to the electrode array that creates a small pulse of electricity. These pulses stimulate functioning cells bypassing the damage photoreceptor. They then send visual information through the optical nerve to the brain. The patient is than able to see pattern of light. One impact is the ability to see anything as a person with blindness. They being able to see an image that is not just darkness. To see a world in not just one color but in a variety of colors. Second to be able to see motion in front of them. Moving object would be able to be seen. To see what the things making sound are and what are they. Third impact is what it would do to their self-confidence. It would boost it immensely for they would not have to rely on another being to do something. To be able to walk outside and not have to rely on a walking stick, a person...
