However, even through the years of all the research, the AI project remains a failure (Kassan 1). Despite of this, Hawkins is certain that humans are capable of producing artificial intelligence (qtd. in Kassan 1). Honda, a Japanese mobile company, proved that Hawkins’s statement is rather accurate by creating ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility). The robot is said to be the most human-like creation Honda has ever made. By 2005, ASIMO is “better, stronger, and faster.” ASIMO “can do things like turn on light switches, open doors, carry objects, and push carts” (Orbinger and Strickland). Robots pretty much do the things that humans cannot do or simply do not want to do. This is a good deal for people who are too busy to do the chores at home or for someone who does not want additional burden when he comes from work. Yet, the question still remains: “Do we really need robots to do all these things?” In a brighter perspective, robots can do things more efficiently, “and without the continuous cost and social upheaval” (“Ethical Issues”). Is this not an insult to the capacity of humans to these jobs? It seems like the term “more efficiently” degrades the value of human work. Robotics, though a proof of humans’ intelligence, should not be taken as “slave machines” and made them do all the humans are capable of doing because first, it will affect human resources and job displacements, it would alter the natural, and it would forcibly pass through human limitation and eventually leading to the realization of the concept of “Singularity.”
Necessity is the mother of invention; the seed of all production, or is it? The concept of necessity seems to have changed through the course of dynamic technological revolution. In the different kinds of industry, cutting the production costs without risking quality

Communication of ideas has been enhanced in the 21st century through the use of internet and has had tremendous effects on various aspects of the societal life. A rapid change in how we communicate ideas has the effect of rewriting the rules on how that power is manifest.
Understanding the impact of these technologies is extremely important since it makes us deduce the negative and positive sides of the same (Das 222). Social networks such as Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter can allow one to search, find, and connect with anyone; from a colleague in a neighboring cubicle to someone in a country one has never visited.
Structuralism exist in academic psychology for the first time in the 19th century and then resurface again during the second half of the 20th century, when it developed into being the most accepted approaches in the academic fields that are concerned with analysing language, culture, and society.
Thus, the Department of Homeland Security strengthens further its attempt in protecting and securing the US community through its different programs and strategies that involves the use of science and technology.
Science and politics are two different issues that co-exist in the society.
Through microteaching environments and supervised experience, new teachers should become aware of how applications of technology help students share and collaborate in building their knowledge of science and scientific inquiry. Teaching and learning has been recognized as the most effective elements in developing individuals .Through the education of the journal article I have been exposed to a good opportunity for sharing different perspective in teaching and learning with the use of technology in the strategies that can be very appropriate for teaching science subjects.
On one hand, there are technology pessimists such as Jacques Ellul, who see technology as a totally autonomous entity with a will of its own. Whereas, there is another extreme as well, they are known as 'technology optimists'. They maintain that technology is the main driving force for the over all progress in the society.
Evaluation techniques can be divided into ex ante and ex post. While the ex post evaluation has always been present and is now a standard, ex ante assessment presents greater interest as it allows to assess the future returns of investments.
Each evaluation of research, regardless of type, requires experts, funds, and time to be carried out in proper way.
Extensive support has been given to the science and technology's research and development programs in order to find the best strategies against terrorists who are more than willing to destabilize the United States government.
"The National Strategy for Homeland Security and the Homeland Security Act of 2002 served to mobilize and organize our nation to secure the homeland from terrorist attacks.
In contrast, technology is about making things, putting together different materials and components in such a way to make them work for some specific purpose. In this sense, there is no relationship as one is understood to be a process
