Technology is a distinct human cultural activity in which human beings exercise freedom and responsibility in response to God by forming and transforming the natural creation, with the aid of tools and procedures, for practical ends and purposes. In focusing on the practice of technology as sustained by engineers, similar to the way philosophy of science focuses on the practice of science as sustained by scientists, analytic philosophy of technology could be thought to amount to the philosophy of engineering.
The Sustainable Technology Forum provides research, insight and community for organisations at the forefront of sustainable innovation in engineering and IT. As a global forum for policy, market research and discussion in the most current and thought provoking topics today, the STF has one of the largest voices in technology, engineering and energy.
In the context of this definition, the ultimate purpose of technology is to enhance the value of human life, with a long-term perspective,by maximization of happiness and satisfaction and a concomitant reduction or minimization of pain and suffering (physical, mental and emotional).
The form of philosophy of technology constituted by the writings of these and others has been called by Carl Mitcham (1994) ‘humanities philosophy of technology’, because it takes its point of departure in the social sciences and the humanities rather than in the practice of technology.
The first wireless network, known as 1G, launched in 1980.2G then introduced in the early 1990s that allows more transmissions per channel of communication.Furthermore, the foundation of 3G started in the late 1990s and began to be implemented in most of the world in the early 21st century.While the 3G network is the first to enable multimedia applications, 4G network promises to bring this basic technology to the next level.
