By Aaron Smith and Janna Anderson Key Findings The vast majority of respondents to the Future of the Internet canvassing anticipate that robotics and artificial intelligence will permeate wide segments of daily life bywith huge implications for a range of industries such as health care, transport and logistics, customer service, and home maintenance. But even as they are largely consistent in their predictions for the evolution of technology itself, they are deeply divided on how advances in AI and robotics will impact the economic and employment picture over the next decade. We call this a canvassing because it is not a representative, randomized survey. We will adapt to these changes by inventing entirely new types of work, and by taking advantage of uniquely human capabilities.
Hominids started using primitive stone tools millions of years ago. The earliest stone tools were little more than a fractured rock, but approximately 75, years ago,  pressure flaking provided a way to make much finer work.
Control of fire by early humans The discovery and utilization of firea simple energy source with many profound uses, was a turning point in the technological evolution of humankind. As the Paleolithic era progressed, dwellings became more sophisticated and more elaborate; as early as ka, humans were constructing temporary wood huts.
The invention of polished stone axes was a major advance that allowed forest clearance on a large scale to create farms.
This use of polished stone axes increased greatly in the Neolithic, but were originally used in the preceding Mesolithic in some areas such as Ireland.
Additionally, children could contribute labor to the raising of crops more readily than they could to the hunter-gatherer economy. Eventually, the working of metals led to the discovery of alloys such as bronze and brass about BCE.

The first uses of iron alloys such as steel dates to around BCE. History of transport Meanwhile, humans were learning to harness other forms of energy. The earliest known use of wind power is the sailing ship ; the earliest record of a ship under sail is that of a Nile boat dating to the 8th millennium BCE.
The ancient Sumerians in Mesopotamia used a complex system of canals and levees to divert water from the Tigris and Euphrates rivers for irrigation. More recently, the oldest-known wooden wheel in the world was found in the Ljubljana marshes of Slovenia. It did not take long to discover that wheeled wagons could be used to carry heavy loads.
The ancient Sumerians used the potter's wheel and may have invented it. The first two-wheeled carts were derived from travois  and were first used in Mesopotamia and Iran in around BCE.
Medieval technologyRenaissance technologyIndustrial RevolutionSecond Industrial RevolutionInformation Technologyand Productivity improving technologies economic history Innovations continued through the Middle Ages with innovations such as silkthe horse collar and horseshoes in the first few hundred years after the fall of the Roman Empire.
Medieval technology saw the use of simple machines such as the leverthe screwand the pulley being combined to form more complicated tools, such as the wheelbarrowwindmills and clocks. The Renaissance brought forth many of these innovations, including the printing press which facilitated the greater communication of knowledgeand technology became increasingly associated with sciencebeginning a cycle of mutual advancement.
The advancements in technology in this era allowed a more steady supply of food, followed by the wider availability of consumer goods. The automobile revolutionized personal transportation. Starting in the United Kingdom in the 18th century, the Industrial Revolution was a period of great technological discovery, particularly in the areas of agriculturemanufacturingminingmetallurgyand transportdriven by the discovery of steam power.
Technology took another step in a second industrial revolution with the harnessing of electricity to create such innovations as the electric motorlight bulband countless others.
Scientific advancement and the discovery of new concepts later allowed for powered flight and advancements in medicinechemistryphysicsand engineering. The rise in technology has led to skyscrapers and broad urban areas whose inhabitants rely on motors to transport them and their food supply.
Communication was also greatly improved with the invention of the telegraphtelephoneradio and television.
The late 19th and early 20th centuries saw a revolution in transportation with the invention of the airplane and automobile. F and F flying over Kuwaiti oil fires during the Gulf War in The 20th century brought a host of innovations. In physicsthe discovery of nuclear fission has led to both nuclear weapons and nuclear power.
Computers were also invented and later miniaturized utilizing transistors and integrated circuits. Information technology subsequently led to the creation of the Internetwhich ushered in the current Information Age.
Humans have also been able to explore space with satellites later used for telecommunication and in manned missions going all the way to the moon.
In medicine, this era brought innovations such as open-heart surgery and later stem cell therapy along with new medications and treatments.About Balakuteera.
Founded in , BALAKUTEERA Montessori House of Children is an independent school run by the BALAKUTEERA Educational Trust. It offers a pre-primary programme for children aged 2 to 6 years.
Technology can be viewed as an activity that forms or changes culture. Additionally, technology is the application of math, science, and the arts for the benefit of life as it is known. Anti-Corruption: The Global Fight is a new handbook from IIP Publications that outlines the kinds of corruption, their effects, and the ways that people and governments combat corruption through legislative and civil society actions.
The ideas put forth by the Puritans are not simply an important starting point for American culture because they were the first in the country, but because they offered ways of thinking that are still ingrained in our culture today. Key Findings.
