If we asked people with little to no technology background, they might tell you that technology hasn’t yet solved any problems. It has, however, made quite a few problems worse. some problems in tech.
Some problems it has created are particularly troubling.
One of the hardest problems of creating technology is creating it to solve the problems we care about. Technology creates the opportunity to solve certain problems – the things we care about. In the end, the problem solving tools are there to solve problems, but we decide what to do with them. We are left to decide what problems are important enough to solve, what is a problem to solve, and where technology fits in.
After we decide what problems are important, the technology itself then has to solve those problems. Those are the problems we are left with – the real problems.
Every single technology solution is supported by the solutions created in the earlier stage. When the technology solves a problem, a whole group of other problems must be solved. Often the problem solving tools are developed separately, like we make technology to solve problems, and solutions come from individual people.
Yet technology hasn’t yet solved all of our problems. It may have solved some, but not others.
Our technologies don’t provide solutions for everything, because our problem solving tools are used in just the right way. We don’t apply technology to solve the real problems.
On my way home tonight, I pondered this question, “What problems have we solved with technology?”
Here are some of the problems that I came up with. School has never changed, but technology has changed it. Technology has changed it. Students now have all sorts of amazing new things to learn with. We have no idea how to solve the school problems, and technology has changed it – technology has solved the problems.
Doctors have always worked with technology changes our school environment. We had less effective antibiotics before technology. Medicine is still trying to figure out exactly where technology fits in. Technology has certainly made many problems better, but it has also made many problems worse.
Some problems that technology has not solved
The Internet isn’t a way to solve many problems. One of the issues it doesn’t solve is communicating and making human connections. Many problems remain unsolved because we use the Internet to solve them, not solving them ourselves. Technology is a tool that sometimes solves problems, but doesn’t solve them all.
The real problems are not solved, but they have changed.
Technology is a tool, but it doesn’t solve everything, and it doesn’t solve the problems it creates, either.
After some time, technology changes it, too. Some of the problems solved by technology will change over time. Technology has proven it is not a way to solve the problems we need solved.
Technology does not solve some problems.
How Technology is helping us
Most computers solve some of the problems created by the problems created by technology. On the positive side, computers have proven to be quite good at solving certain problems, such as teaching and designing.
Computers have improved communication. Information technology has improved communication. Technology has improved our ability to communicate and understand each other. Technology creates new problems, but technology can help us solve them. Some problems are better solved with technology, and some problems are better solved through human connections.
Other problems seem better solved by technology, but they also solve some problems. The problems become problems because we solve them through technology and technology solves them because we solved them with technology.
Often our problems are not solved.
How we can fix some problems
Fixing problems is something technology can help with.
We have some big problems with government that are not solved, and technology can help solve some of the big problems.
Government is very broken. Our government just doesn’t do what it is supposed to do.
The Government doesn’t solve many problems.
The Government solves some problems for some people, but not for many people.
Govt has problems with fairness and equality. The governments don’t solve fairness and equality for everyone.
The technology tends to spread things around fairly. Tech is good at fixing some problems that government is bad at solving, and some problems government is good at solving.
