Communication, transportation, information technology and commerce have also been inextricably intertwined since the beginning of human history, and they still remain closely related today.
“The success of the first electronic telegraph line in 1844 opened an era of modern communication in America. Before the telegraph there existed no separation between transportation and communication. Information traveled only as fast as the messenger who carried it.” — D. J. Czitrom, Media and the American Mind
This reality was even codified in the Dewey Decimal library classification system:
380 Commerce, communications, transportation
These are organized by a classification scheme developed exclusively for Cosma. More…
information technology : the technology involving the development, maintenance, and use of computer systems, software, and networks for the processing and distribution of data — Webster See also OneLook, Free Dictionary, Wiktionary
Information technology (IT) is the application of computers and internet to store, retrieve, transmit, and manipulate data, or information, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. The term is commonly used as a synonym for computers and computer networks, but it also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as television and telephones. Several industries are associated with information technology, including computer hardware, software, electronics, semiconductors, internet, telecom equipment, engineering, healthcare, e-commerce, and computer services. — Wikipedia

- New computer modeling could boost drug discoveryon October 27, 2021 at 4:19 pm
Scientists have developed a computer-aided data tool that could improve treatment for a range of illnesses.
- Teaching robots to think like uson October 26, 2021 at 4:42 pm
Researchers outline how a robot could be taught to navigate through a maze by electrically stimulating a culture of brain nerve cells connected to the machine. These nerve cells were grown from living cells and acted as the physical reservoir for the computer to construct coherent signals. These findings suggest goal-directed behavior can be generated without any additional learning by sending disturbance signals to an embodied system.
