Encyclopedia

Technology is the making, modification, usage, and knowledge of tools, machines, techniques, crafts, systems, methods of organization, in order to solve a problem, improve a preexisting solution to a problem, achieve a goal or perform a specific function. It can also refer to the collection of such tools, machinery, modifications, arrangements and procedures. Technologies significantly affect human as well as other animal species’ ability to control and adapt to their natural environments. The term can either be applied generally or to specific areas: examples include construction technology, medical technology, and information technology.

The human species’ use of technology began with the conversion of natural resources into simple tools. The prehistorical discovery of the ability to control fire increased the available sources of food and the invention of the wheel helped humans in traveling in and controlling their environment. Recent technological developments, including the printing press, the telephone, and the Internet, have lessened physical barriers to communication and allowed humans to interact freely on a global scale. However, not all technology has been used for peaceful purposes; the development of weapons of ever-increasing destructive power has progressed throughout history, from clubs to nuclear weapons. — Wikipedia

    (Singapore University of Technology and Design) SUTD researchers developed an N-shaped electrode-based microfluidic impedance cytometry device for the simultaneous measurement of the lateral position and physical properties of single cells and particles in continuous flows. This novel microdevice can be easily integrated with other microfluidic platforms as a downstream approach for the real-time characterization of the sorting efficiency and biophysical properties of single cells.

    (Penn State) In order to share, integrate and analyze research, scientists from many disciplines rely on Galaxy, a scientific workflow-management system. Despite its popularity, the system currently is not compatible with technology that would increase its speed and expand its functionality. Now, Mahmut Kandemir, professor of computer science and engineering in the Penn State College of Engineering, is working to integrate that technology and improve the capabilities of Galaxy.
