Sample Technology Paper on Science Technology

Science Technology

            It is without a doubt that the fast-paced rate of technological development has led to a tremendous change in the people’s daily lives. The inevitable technological advancements have led to an improved status in a myriad of fields such as the medical care, industrial revolution, trade, transportation and interactive communication models. The experience of life in the 21st century is wholly different compared to that which was experienced centuries ago. New ideas and suggestions related to the human needs and wants have shaped both today’s and futuristic plan in relation to the science and technology evolution. This paper simply predicts an improved and better future due to the continuous evolution of internet science and technology. The ideas that we once thought to be impossible are currently today’s reality.

SCIENTIFIC AND DESIGN METHODS

Science is defined as a systematic and logical approach to discovering how a myriad of things functions within the universe (Yin 2). Science itself is regarded as a complex subject that further comprises other fields such as Physics, Biology, Chemistry, and Computer Science, Geology, Anthropology, Psychology among many other fields. Science mainly relies on proved facts that had once been hypothesized as pure ideas. In order for the hypothesized ideas to be termed as scientific facts, there is need to incorporate scientific methods and procedures that will help in coming up with the ultimate conclusion on whether the ideas are indeed new scientific discoveries or not. Thus, the scientific method is an eminently essential aspect in coming up with scientific facts and discoveries. The scientific method is further used as a tool to challenge ideas so as to come up with proved, precise and correct facts. According to some erudite researchers, true science can be recognized specifically through an experimental method according to where a theory if truly scientific, must be built on and tested against the results of observation and experimental (Yin 5). The scientific method is carried out in sequential procedures namely; carrying out an observation, creating a hypothesis by proposing explanations and testing the explanations or testable hypothesis. Scientific method prescribes how scientists collect and analyze data, how they draw conclusions from data and how they share data with others (Yin 14). However, a problem exists in cases where the scientist’s procedures of proving a given hypothesis are drawn from his own personal biases or emotions.

It is with this exact profound reason that the scientific research and method loses its objectivity of proving whether a given hypothesis is indeed a fact or not. Thus, incorporating a ‘design method’ to be part of carrying out a scientific research is eminently vital in ensuring that the scientist or researcher follows all the rules stipulated by the scientific method where observations are collected and results are analyzed without any form of biases. A research design method can be referred to a work plan that provides a set of strict guidelines to the researcher on how he or she should collect, analyze and evaluate the results of a given research study. A design method mainly plays the primary role in ensuring that the research study focuses on the designated objectives. This, therefore, assists the researcher to avoid situations where the evidence fails to address the stated or initial research questions. The design method is thus composed of five main components namely; the research study’s questions, its proposition, its unit (s) of analysis, the logic linking of data to the propositions and the criteria for interpreting the findings (Yin 28).

INNOVATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF INTERNET SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

It is no surprise that internet-related technologies have become one of the sensations and trend of the world. Internet technology has developed to an extent that could never have been imagined. Internet science and technology has provided people with a plethora of benefits that have improved the living standards of people as well as alleviated certain hard tasks that people were used to doing during the times when internet technology was a mere hypothetical idea. The period by which internet technology was being invented was during the late 1960’s. The innovation of the internet had been fueled by the federal government, which funded a research project that was based on connecting a range of computers to each other to develop an interconnected network. This was later followed by the development of ARPANET that was later developed into a system of interconnected networks that would become known as the internet. In the 1990s, an application known as the World Wide Web was developed through the internet. The number of internet users grew rapidly from a handful of computer scientists to a great multitude of users. Ever since the innovation of the internet, there have been tremendous positive changes that have further led to an improvement in man’s livelihood. Some of these benefits include; development of fast and more efficient communication means such as through emails and Skype, development of social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, availability of fast and effective search engines such as Google and Yahoo. In addition, the internet has provided a great avenue for business and trade in such a way that a consumer is able to do online purchasing and online business at his or her own convenience. Example of such remarkable trading and business websites include eBay, Amazon and other personal websites where a person displays his or her goods online to attract sales by millions and millions of customers who purchase goods and services online. The existence of flash disks, memory cards and the use of compact disks will become irrelevant in the near future, as cloud-based information storage is more convenient and not affected by the size of data or information that needs to be stored. It is also safe and one is guaranteed that his or her stored information is immune from being destroyed by the current emerging fatal viruses.

CONCLUSION

In conclusion, this paper simply predicts an improved and better future due to the continuous evolution of internet science and technology. Besides this, the scientific knowledge does not only serve as the foundation but also as the cornerstone for all the predicted development in internet science and technology.
