Topic: "Technological tools to resolve basic needs"
The world we live in today is heavily influenced by technology. We are undergoing a time where information has made us more aware of our surroundings and has better equipped us for change. Advancements across multiple industries (computing, manufacturing, energy and communication) are as commonplace as a new breakfast cereal. Physical, social and informational technologies simplify our day to day lives. We can make paper-less payments with smart phones, use water bottles with carbon filters to treat impurities, and consult online databases for traffic maps and medical databases.
How can we use technology as a tool to resolve or improve basic human needs and to address societal concerns?
