    PRACTICAL ISSUES IN CYBER-TECHNOLOGY

    The Internet and privately owned computer networks, such as wide area networks (WANs) and local area networks (LANs), are perhaps the most common and well-known examples of cyber-technology. However, cyber-technology represent the entire range of computing system, from stand-alone computers to privately owned networks to the Internet itself. Practical issues in cyber-technology are not limited to the Internet; they also include privately owned computers networks and interconnected communication technologies. It is the technologies that we refer to collectively as cyber-technology. Hence, ‘cyberethics’ captured the wide range of practical issues involving cyber-technology. ‘Cyberethics’ is more accurate than ‘computer ethics’. The term ‘computer ethics’ can connote practical issues associated with computer machines,…

    CAN TECHNOLOGY REPLACE NATURE?

    Imagine the designated garden you’ve been visiting every summer for years is not garden at all. The grasses and trees are synthetics, the birds are clones, the mountains and valleys are man-made. The engineers who created this place did a fine job to create a perfect garden that gives you a wonderful experience. Their employers removed the natural resources in the area in order to make a profit, thereby destroying the original environment, and have replaced what was natural with a very good fake. For years you have enjoyed your time in what you thought was a pristine natural area. Only now you have learned that the garden was a…

    HOW TO UNDERSTANDING ICT/IT

    One of the prolific ways to understand Information and Communication Technology (ICT)/Information Technology (IT) is by focusing not on the specific and contingent features of the constantly and ever changing technologies that go under the tag, but on the more stable nature of the object with which they deal namely information. From this perspective, ICT/IT includes any technology used to treat information in one or more of the phases in its life cycle: occurrence –discovering, design, authoring, acquiring, creating, et cetera, processing and management –collecting, validating, modifying, organizing, indexing, classifying, filtering, updating, sorting, networking, distributing, disseminating, displaying, accessing, retrieving, transmitting, transferring, et cetera, and usage –monitoring, modeling, analyzing, explaining, interpreting,…

    OUR INTERACTION WITH TECHNOLOGY

    To talk of social aims is to talk of social relationship and mutual interaction. If technology has nothing to do with these, then it has become irrelevant to human beings. But we all know that technology has to comply with us in our beings and interactions. That is in fact the foundational justification of technology: that it is there to help humanity. Technological change has increasingly led to public moral debate. Concerns have been raised about the legitimacy of nuclear deterrence, dangers of environmental pollution, informed consent in medicine, privacy and computing, the safety and desirability of genetic engineering, intellectual technology property rights, and nanotechnological risks. Given the large and…

    SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY: GOOD AND UGLY

    The hybridization of science and technology stands in contrast to an older usage which suggest not only distinct differences between science and technology, but also a clear relation of dependencies of technology upon science, as in the once popular usage of “applied science” referring to must engineering in its modern sense. The usage prevailed well into the twentieth century and still exists as a little for some programs, but has increasingly be called into question. A complicated image of science, in some ways actually looking more like a technologically practiced science has emerged, such a science is, or has cultural, historical, contextual, socio-political features and is fallibilistic. If the ground…

    RESPONSIBILITY OF TECHNOLOGY

    The final goal of our use of things is for full or ultimate being:  such being requires no techniques or nor is that goal assured by the grandeur of science. The ultimacy of being is not a technological of ultimacy but a human ultimacy. Because all agree that the techne of technology is for the use of human being. This means to say that technology is made for man, not man for technology. This is another way of saying that while technology is the end to which human ingenuity; humanity is the end at which technology arrives. Technology has its legitimacy: that is, it’s the sole justification in humanity, only…
