What types of technologies are we using in this ever-evolving world?

Written by Nikita Kondla

In today’s world, we have 16 different types of technology; communication technology, construction technology, product technology, medical technology, architecture technology, business technology, educational technology, and information technology. So, when you think of the word "technology," what comes to your mind? Well, technology makes us think/feel very complex or intricate, but it does not have to be too complex.


The major certainty of technology is creating change that impacts society and businesses. All of these technologies are designed to make your life easier. Communication technology is essential in all aspects of personal and professional lives to express emotions, share information, and exchange ideas. Communication technology is probably one of the most common technologies that have been used in everyday life. The advancement in technology has enhanced the ways to communicate information from one place to another. Communication technology helps in transmitting data or information by using various devices like telephone, radio, and television, and the internet. Businesses also utilize communication technology for facilitating the flow of knowledge and information in workplaces, promoting innovative services and products, serving the consumers their requests and needs, and in their decision-making processes.


Someone argued that it would be a high-network increase in bandwidths on all network operations. If network bandwidth continues to increase at its current rate, then it will soon be feasible to transmit enormous amounts of data which includes digital voice and video at a very low cost. These construction tools can help in enhancing the operational efficiency and ensuring that the builders will complete their project with minimum issues and accidents, within the specified budget and the given deadline. Product technology is the understanding of specifications and characteristics of a service or product that is created as per the needs of the market and manufacturing processes. This is the specific technology that is used by the manufacturing processes. Medical technology is the most effective and beneficial type of technology as it assists in improving and extending human life.


Medical technology is a vast field in which innovation has played a significant role in sustaining human health by helping in reducing pain and speeding up the recovery processes. The developed countries around the world have benefitted the most from the adaption of this technology in their healthcare systems. Many developing countries have benefited from this type of technology as it assists in improving and extending human life. Medical technology has compromised areas such as biotechnology to improve the health of their populations. The major contributions have already been made and more are underway to further improve healthcare. Technology has indeed made an unbelievable impact on the field of medicine. Architecture technology is the type of technology and is the application of modern technology for designing buildings. Architecture technology is the component of building and architecture and is practiced by building/architectural engineers, structural engineers, architectural technologies, and architects. There are new technologies and architects as well as other developing concepts or designs in reality. This helps with various elements of buildings, including windows and elevators. Business Technology is the application of information, engineering, data, and science for businesses related purposes like achieving organizational and economic goals. This technology will help the proper and systematic running of businesses and for enhancing different businesses’ functions and operations. This typically includes a mixture of hardware and software. Small businesses utilize technology to establish innovative ways.


Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are products of both science and myth— the idea that machines could think and perform tasks just as humans do was probably around a thousand years old till today. It would be better to view these technologies as the implementation of powerful and long-established cognitive principles in engineering and computer science. In the future, humans will be able to converse and interact with each other in the native language of their choice. They don’t have to worry about miscommunicating intentions. Machine learning will be able to understand contact that fills the gaps of human communication.
