The power of technology
According to UN estimates, the world’s population has already surpassed 7 billion people, and by 2100, it could have surpassed 11 billion. This the population, combined with environmental concerns, puts even more strain on already overtaxed energy supplies. Although there is no magic bullet, Georgia Tech researchers are working on a number of innovations to make power more plentiful, efficient, and environmentally friendly.
In geek talk, here’s a short rundown: Thermally driving a sodium redox reaction on opposite sides of a solid electrolyte produces energy from solar heat. Due to an electrochemical potential created by a pressure gradient, the resulting positive electrical charges move through the solid electrolyte, while the electrons migrate through an external load where electric power is extracted. In the end, this new method increases performance and eliminates heat loss, according to Yee.
The aim is to achieve a heat-to-electricity conversion efficiency of more than 45 percent, which is a major improvement over the 20 percent efficiency of a car engine and the 30 percent efficiency of most electric grid sources.
When we harness the power of technology and design, there
In cyberspace, we’re in the midst of a massive power struggle. Traditional, centralized, bureaucratic powers, such as governments and large multinational corporations, are on one side. In the other hand, grassroots organizations, dissident parties, hackers, and criminals are dispersed and nimble. Initially, the Internet aided the opposition. It provided them with a central location to plan and communicate effectively, as well as giving them the appearance of being unbeatable. The more conventional institutional forces, on the other hand, are now winning, and winning big. The fate of the rest of us who don’t fall into either category, as well as how these two sides fare in the long run, is an open question—and one that is crucial to the Internet’s future.
It’s all about the numbers. Any society, in general, would have some level of crime due to the way humans behave as a species and as a society. And there is a certain level of crime that society is able to accept. We were able to live with a certain number of offenders in our culture because criminals have traditionally been inefficient. When technology increases the power of each individual perpetrator, the percentage we can tolerate decreases. Remember the controversy on “weapons of mass destruction”: We must do more to prevent even a single terrorist from succeeding as the amount of harm that each individual terrorist can inflict rises. The further destabilizing the technology, the more fear-mongering rhetoric will develop, and institutional forces will become stronger. This necessitates more repressive security measures, even if the security gap renders these measures progressively ineffective. And it will further pinch the peasants in the east. The peasant was vulnerable to criminals and other feudal lords without the safety of his own feudal lord. However, both companies and governments—and sometimes the two working together—are exploiting their influence, trampling on our rights in the process. And, lacking the technological know-how to become our own Robin Hoods, we have no choice but to adhere to whatever the governing institutional power desires.
The power of technology
Ray S. Cline characterized power in geopolitics as the sum of resources such as population, land, and economic assets multiplied by strategy and will.
Ces 2021: we are ready to show the power of technology
Michael Porter described advantage in business as dominance of the value chain in order to project power through an industry.
Power is essential in every definition because it allows you to accomplish goals.
If you’re a politician or an executive, you’ll need to seek leverage in order to accomplish your goals.
However, power has always been highly context-dependent, and in today’s world of constantly changing contexts, new sources of power are often the most potent.
Max Boot argues in his book War Made New that technological changes often bring great powers to their knees.
The Mongols failed to notice the turn to gunpowder.
The Chinese, Turks, and Indians were overtaken by the first industrial revolution, although the French and British were unable to keep up with the second.
The end of Soviet supremacy was marked by the emergence of information technology.
Data, and the ability to process it, has become a new source of power in today’s world.
Knowledge, as described by Claude Shannon, the founder of information theory, is the absence of uncertainty, and thus has always had strategic significance.
Yet, never before has there been the possibility of using knowledge as a source of control.
