    “Technology is becoming less an extension of oneself and more a part of oneself.”

    So, good news; those slightly dystopian, techy bracelets that appear in numerous Sci-Fi movies are finally becoming a reality! Thankfully, they’re built more to track your workouts rather than your whereabouts. Available from LG, Song, Fitbit and Garmin these bracelets are becoming the future of health.

    But wearable tech isn’t limited to your wrist. There are also clips such as the Lumo Lift, which clips to your clothing and sends suggestions on how you can improve your workout to your phone.

    Health-based tech is also continuing to become part of our bodies, rather than removable accessories. There’s a swallowable implant just on the horizon that will collect information about your body from within.

    Do you support these sorts of technological advancements? Would you be up for swallowing an implant if it could improve your health?

    Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

    Does technology have all the answers?

    This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

    Creating technological solutions transparently

    This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

    Technology as the connecting tool

    Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.
