Technology has grown at an exponential rate and in fact, an observation made by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore in 1965, no coined as "Moore's Law" predicts that computer processing speed will double every 18 months. In many ways the Technology Revolution (TR) is now considered to be the equivalent to the Industrial Revolution (IR) by utilizing inventions that were built during the time of the IR and enhanced them exponentially.
However, not all developments spawned from the TR are to our benefit particularly in regards to our overall health. The application of technology too many times is to replace vs. inform human interaction. We spend time looking at screens, communicating via emails versus face to face and send text instead of call. Our jobs require us to be consumed by technology in one form or another just so we can be efficient enough to match the demands of production. Technology can drive engagement though should not replace the interaction with a team.
The role of technology is to balance the pros and cons in the following ways:
