In Chapter 11, we look at the role of Technology in Business and Society. We look at Cybersecurity, the loss of Privacy; we look at the Use of Robotics; we look at Genetically Engineered Food; we look at Scientific breakthroughs in the Human Genome & Biotechnology…and so much more!
These are such important issues that we are all facing as a society, with so many awesome benefits and so many very real risks..
I want you to look at these issues and I want YOU to develop questions and answers about these issues. What questions do you have about these technologies (living in the current fast-paced technological environment, you must have questions!)..
Please post your question about the Topic that is attached. Then use your book or the Internet to provide some insight about your question.. Post the URL link of any Internet sources you use so your peers can review as needed.
****POSTS MUST INCLUDE MORE THAN A QUESTION IN ORDER TO GET ANY CREDIT AT ALL***
The gap between those who have access to the Internet through technology and those who do not is called the digital divide.9 Some people have Internet access through computers, cell phones, and other devices; others do not. People in developing countries often have less Internet access than people in developed countries; and within developed countries, persons of color and the less affluent often have less access. The presence of a digital divide is a problem because less advantaged individuals and societies may not enjoy the same benefits of technology as others.
