How Technology Has Affected Art

Some people might say that art is dying. Art has changed completely over the course of time. It is a rare breed to find a portrait artist that can make a living from his work. Portrait painting is just not as popular as it once was which means that great portraits are hard to come by. Others would argue that art is just as popular, but not in the same forms as the past. People have changed from making marble statues and sculptures to graphic designs and movies. Art can take many different forms. It is all just a matter of how you view it.

Technology has changed a lot over the course of art history. Certain things can only be as nice as the tools that you have to use. Making a sculpture with outdated tools will seriously limit your capabilities. So in a world where many devices are so readily available, it is easier for those who do sculpt to have the best technology. Another way in which technology has changed art is developing new forms. The best example of that is graphic design. Now in the modern world of computers, people can create images through different programs that are truly captivating. Some would argue that it is not really art because the programs can give so much assistance. You do need to have that creative mind and eye to develop any type of art, whether it is by hand or computer.

Movies are a much debated form of art. Many movies can be classified as great works of art because of the different filming techniques and special effects that are used. The way that films can evoke such emotions makes them truly something special. If you or someone you know is skeptical of films as art, indie films or older movies usually serve as great examples. These are all about the true art of film making, not about making money like many of the major Hollywood movie companies. Sometimes you see how the whole public can appreciate the artistic nature of a movie. On special occasions an indie film will breakthrough and have popular success across the nation. These are the types of films that really reach the people.

One thing that is hard to argue is the importance of art. It speaks to the culture of an era. Art shows not only how the human mind thinks and works, but how the world has affected the people at that time. Art is full of feeling, whether it is the pain or happiness in a person’s heart. It is a way for future generations to get a feel of the people that had come before them. There would be something seriously wrong with humanity if we let art die.

Technology, Discounts, Customer Education to Drive Telematics Auto Insurance

Insurers are recognizing the importance of discounts to penetrate U.S. and Canadian markets. But this calls for the combination of product features.

Something seriously required in favor of the auto insurance policy holders in United States of America and Canada. UBI adoption is growing at a frenetic pace in North America according to the figures released by BI Research. Market watchers are keenly observing the growth of auto insurance and the factors that can pose challenges to auto insurance industry. Figures depict a rosy picture. Telematics based auto insurance growth rose from 4.1% in 2015 to 6% in 2016 in North America. The growth is pegged at 19.2% in 2019. What is the role of telematics expertise in expanding market reach? Can discounts increase the subscriber base? Is there any pitfall? Let us explore.

Insurers are constantly on the lookout for cost effective ways of doing business with telematics. But convincing policy holders seem to be their challenge. Yesterday’s know how is passe with newer and sophisticated knowledge developing on ICT front. Data collection and customer engagement hold the key for success in the wired world today. Aspiring policy holders can be convinced by the insurers with cutting edge technologies like: Driving data capture, direct marketing channel, Roadside assistance (NSD Partner), Geo analytics and gamification to mention a few. The millennial and Gen Z are technophile demography for the telematics market.

Technical features are for risk mitigation and discounts are for cost reduction. If both factors are combined market penetration is easier. At this point an expert is taking a balanced view. Donald Light the director of Celent, a research and consulting firm, is of the opinion that a combination of both discounts and surcharges can provide a bright future for telematics in Canada. He was sharing his view during ‘Insurance Telematics Canada 2016’ in Toronto. We all know surcharges are additional premiums against risky driving behavior. And Light suggest this to change the driver perception on their driving.

What perception Light wants to change? People pay a price for a product or service on their perception on quality. The same theory is applicable to one’s perception towards driving. If one thinks he is a ‘better driver’ and not an average driver which he actually is, then encouraging them to implement telematics mobile app to avail discounts will become a demanding task. Because his self esteem comes in the way of enhancing his driving behavior and accepting drive score as ultimate criteria for improving his driving. It is at this very stage only education is needed to change perceptions.

The very purpose of UBI is to reward the well behaving drivers on criteria like speed, acceleration, phone use etc. Vast part of the population are mobile and it makes sense for them to implement telematics mobile app on their mobile devices to mitigate accidents as well as earning drive score to avail policy premium discounts. Education is needed to change wrong perceptions of drivers to accept UBI as fair and to understand what standard driving behavior is.

Education should be extended on ensuring cyber security as telematics mobile apps are also prone to cyber attacks. This should be seen in the context where 60% of cars and trucks are going to be connected on net by 2017. This means tailored telematics services should address cyber security issue also to gain more acceptance in the market.

Switching to telematics is a good option; it is also promising for the insurance sector that wants to expand its reach. Cutting edge technical features, discounts for drive scorecards as well as surcharges for errant driving behavior can increase the acceptability of mobile telematics thereby attracting new mobile subscribers. If these issues are addressed, auto insurance market penetration will become easy.

Prime’s telematics system, Xemplar, enables fast and efficient two-way communication between insurers and customers. Xemplar’s mobile app-based system saves you money on hardware and infrastructure costs while also accommodating any mobile device or tablet; reaching drivers anytime, anywhere, and providing your business with critical information in real-time.

Technology and Brain Plasticity

We live in an age where technology is developing at a mind-blowing pace. This can be both scary and exhilarating; but we have a choice on how we wish to engage with it. It’s a great thing to be able to “unplug” when we need to: to re-generate, calm the mind, and get back in touch with our natural selves. Conversely, technology can help us save time and streamline so that we can focus on the more important things in life like family and health.

We can also engage in the realm where technology meets and enhances our health and well-being. This pertains to the tried and true age-old technologies such as the science and art of meditation, yoga and mindfulness, for example; as well as to emerging electronic and frequency-based technologies such as neurofeedback.

Neuro what?

Neurofeedback is a powerful tool that takes advantage of the brain’s plasticity (its process of changing and reorganizing itself by forming new connections between brain cells). EEG sensors on the scalp read the electrical activity of the brain, in the form of brainwaves, and reflect this information back to the brain in a specific way through audio or visual cues. This real-time reflection and training of brainwave activity appears to support the brain’s natural ability to reorganize its own patterns and come into a better place of flexibility and self-regulation.

Brainwaves reflect the overall patterns of the electrical activity taking place in billions of brain cells as they communicate throughout their networks; making everything happen mentally, emotionally, and physically. Sometimes these networks and their electrical activity can become disrupted through a physical trauma such as a concussion, or through various emotional traumas and stressors. Neurofeedback helps the brain to readjust and regain its edge.

I’ve been accused of being too enthusiastic about these types of technologies, and ultimately about the brain’s ability to heal and self-regulate under the right circumstances. But I work with these technologies every day, and I’m continually blown away by the results I see.

Will applying a feedback process for the brain reverse structural damage, or halt a degenerative process? Not likely. Can it help the brain remap and reorganize to best take advantage of the resources it has left? Absolutely.

But you do the research. And don’t be discouraged if the research hasn’t caught up yet with the anecdotal reports. There is more and more high-quality research coming out all the time; and the development of various neural technologies underpinned by an ever-evolving scientific understanding of the brain is flourishing.

Take advantage of it. We are lucky to live in a day and age where we have so many choices where we can customize and target specific aspects of our physical and emotional health. Unplugging when we need to, and engaging in both time-honored and cutting-edge technology as appropriate, can do wonders for our physical, mental, and spiritual health and happiness.

The Value of Technology in Educating Young Children

Are young children well suited to the use of technology? Modern technologies are very powerful because they rely on one of the most powerful genetic biases we do have – the preference for visually presented information. The human brain has a tremendous bias for visually presented information. Television, movies, videos, and most computer programs are very visually oriented and therefore attract and maintain the attention of young children. When young children sit in front of television for hours, they fail to develop other perceptions. But the technologies that benefit young children the greatest are those that are interactive and allow the child to develop their curiosity, problem solving and independent thinking skills.

Technology plays a key role in all aspects of American life which will only increase in the future. As technology has become more easy to use, the usage of it by children has simultaneously increased. Early childhood educators have a responsibility to critically examine the impact of technology on children and be prepared to use technology to benefit children. Children educators must be more responsible in bringing a change in the lives of children and their families.

There are several issues related to the use of technology by young children:

• the essential role of teacher in evaluating in evaluating appropriate use of technology.
• the amalgamation of technology in early childhood programs
• stereotyping and violence in software
• equitable access to technology
• implication of technology for professional development
• role of teachers and parents as advocates

A teacher’s role is critical in making good decisions regarding the use of technology in order to achieve potential benefits. Choosing the correct software is quite similar to choosing the perfect set of books for a classroom. Teachers should take the advantage of computers to introduce new teaching and development strategies. Computers are intrinsically compelling for young children. The sound and graphics attract a child’s attention. An appropriate software engages children in creative play, mastery learning, problem solving, and conversation. Children control the pacing and the action. They can repeat a process or activity as often as they like and experiment with variations. They can collaborate in making decisions and share their discoveries and creations. Well-designed early childhood software grows in dimension with the child, enabling her to find new challenges as she becomes more proficient. Appropriate visual and verbal prompts designed in the software expand play themes and opportunities while leaving the child in control. Vast collections of images, sounds, and information of all kinds are placed at the child’s disposal. Software can be made age appropriate even for children as young as three or four. This shows that technology can enhance a child’s cognitive and social abilities. It provides a window to a child’s thinking.

Every classroom has its own guiding philosophies, values, themes and activities. Early childhood educators should promote equitable access to technology for all children and their families. Modern technologies are very powerful as they rely on one of the most powerful biases we have. The problem with this is that many of the modern technologies are very passive. Because of this they do not provide children with the quality and quantity of crucial emotional, social, cognitive, or physical experiences they require when they are young.

Unfortunately, technology is often used to replace social situations but it should be used to enhance human interactions. During the current decade, research has moved beyond simple questions about technology. Very young children are showing comfort and confidence in handling computers. They can turn them on, follow pictorial directions, and use situational and visual cues to understand and reason about their activity. Typing on the keyboard does not seem to cause them any trouble; in fact, it seems to be a source of pride. Thanks to recent technological developments, even children with physical and emotional disabilities can use the computer with ease. Besides enhancing their mobility and sense of control, computers can help improve self-esteem.

Thus the exclusive value of technology is no more in question. Research shows that what is solid for children is not merely what is physical but what is meaningful. Computer representations are often more manageable, flexible, and extensible. To add more there are a number of specialized programs that allow children with certain information-processing problems to get a multimedia presentation of content so that they can better understand and process the material. Even now there are a number of good software programs with a primary educational focus on mathematics or reading. These programs, which are very engaging, motivate children to read better and learn how to solve math problems. When information is presented in a fun and way, it is a lot easier than looking at a single page that has a bunch of columns of numbers you’re supposed to add up.

We are always in search for the magic wand that vanish and solve all our programs. And today the magic wand in our life is technology. It not only increases academic skill, reduce dropout rates but also diminishes the racial divide in academic performance. The danger, however, is that computers will be used only to reinforce the national trend toward earlier and more academic skill acquisition, and that other important developmental needs will be ignored. Moreover the fear will remain that developmental needs not met through technology will be ignored or radically compromised: physical play, outdoor exploration of the community and of nature; art, music and dance; learning specific social skills and moral values, and experiencing diversity in a myriad of ways.

In most of the early childhood programs and schools, technology will be part of the learning landscape of the future. To make sure this new technology is used effectively, we must assure that teachers are fully trained and supported, and that the programs and internet sites used are developmentally appropriate, non racist, non-biased against people with disabilities, and respect religious differences.

Integrating Technology With Transportation

Transportation when integrated with Technology shall redefine what mobility is for the coming century. The Transportation system is just beginning to experience a huge transformation and very soon, in this era of modernization, technology is sure to take over this field.

“A country’s economy is directly linked to its transportation system, its efficiency, reliability.”

And the way it progresses to meet the demands, because transportation is just so important for commerce. Transportation is vital to a nation’s economy.

For a country, growing at this rate, the demands grow exponentially, a challenge to be tackled by the industry. But the current scenario projects people unaware of the growing demands and not so able to successfully face this opportunity. New technologies are emerging to face these challenges.

Advancement in technology plays a very important role in shaping transportation system and new technologies for on-road transportation are a way to look at the brighter side.

Technology bridges the gap and channelizes the system of transportation, which increases their connectivity.

An effective transportation system is the key. That includes, creative use of technology, reduction of cost to transport, improving business, saving loads of time and still being profit for the service provider.

Technology will act as a check on a lot of things.

This will prevent overloading of goods into the truck, which in turn saves the life of the driver and many others. This will also keep an eye on the quality of trucks henceforth making the roads and environment safer. We can also ensure that underage boys don’t turn into drivers. The quantity of goods also can be monitored, this means the factory is also being checked, indirectly. There would be very less scope for any malfunction, in any possible way.

The era of greedy and selfish contractors, who don’t care about safety will soon be done. They will have to regularly check the condition of the truck and strive to maintain it under the optimal conditions.

Moreover, the greater ease in transportation will have a huge positive impact on quality of life and commerce for customers, industries and also the transporters.

Technology will continue to play an essential role in how we move goods for a very long time to come.

Transportation/Trucking is a sector that requires ingenuity for today and vision for the future.Logistics and transportation is a growing field, one that will not plateau. Companies are always seeking faster and better ways to get product to market and on consumers’ shelves or in their driveways.

Truckway welcome you to the new phase of techno- transportation!

A country’s economy is directly linked to its transportation system, its efficiency, reliability, and the way it progresses to meet the demands, because transportation is just so important for commerce. Transportation is vital to a nation’s economy.

Is Mobile Telematics Technology Promising for Auto Insurance?

At a time when road accidents cause the death of millions, there is a need to check driving behavior through mobile technologies.

According to WHO, 1.25 million people die due to road accidents. WHO also estimates accidents will be the seventh leading cause of deaths globally. Is there a need to press the panic button in the face of these figures? What kind of education is required to check accidents or reduce the accident risks? Let us dwell deeper.

According to Bob Joop Goos, chairman of the International Organization for Road Accident Prevention, “Over 90% of accidents are caused by human error.” Human error is all about driving behavior, isn’t it? Well, if it is so there is a need for a driver scorecard for improving driving and making driving safe. This is to ensure that he get his insurance claim hassle free for losses incurred. Having come thus far, let us go into the technical aspects of enhancing ones driving behavior. Moreover, let us also consider whether one has to pay ‘fixed premium’ or ‘pay as you go’ or ‘pay how you drive’ for auto insurance.

A person living in the State of Alabama is paying $1,500 a year on an average. Suppose a person living in the city is paying $1500 where he is prone to more accidents against a person lives in the suburbs paying the same amount where less chances of accidents. Suburban drive is easy compared to driving in cities. Remember the city driver will drive lesser kilometers in comparison with the suburban driver who drives more. The city driver is prone to more accidents. On the other hand the suburban driver is prone to more wear and tear of his vehicle. If fixed premium is collected from both drivers, how does this make sense? Now if you are giving an option to choose between the following:

• Fixed premium annually
• Usage based Insurance (UIB) which is pay-per-use

What will you choose? Everybody wants to be cost effective; none wants to end up in loss. Therefore majority is likely to choose the second option. The reason is more customers are mobile. Customers can download the mobile application on mobiles to track their driving data. Risk assessment is easy with mobile telematics application. Assessing risks like driving at peak traffic hours, following traffic rules or not, parking hassle free, speed driving etc., and take necessary precautions in future with the help of tips provided by the application on mobile device.

Digital technologies are empowering the insureds to pay as you drive (PAYD) insurance, pay how you drive (PHYD) by the customer. How this is going to affect the insurance industry? This is another area that requires discussion.

Mobile telematics technology integrates technologies like Global Positioning System (GPS), Mobility, Cloud and Big Data analytics where driver uses data to enhance his driving behavior. This will reduce accidents. The mobile app gives information on like hard braking applied, rapid acceleration, road types, driving smoothness, phone distraction, traffic alerts, speed and mileage etc. Besides, insurers can deliver personalized services and bring in new customers by reducing processing delays. Club the advantage of enhancing driving behavior with Usage Based Insurance. This will surely get the support from State as well as from businesses.

Shall we gain more insights on this? Businesses are looking for productivity, government wants productive citizens. No one wants their productive ones to be injured or be a burden. It is in this context there is a likelihood where insurance companies, businesses, and government may work together to reduce productivity risks. Driving behavior is the prime cause for road accidents. Mobile telematics technology has the capacity to enhance drive behavior, reduce accident risks and workflow not disrupted.

Mobile telematics technology also has its bearing on automobile industry. As we know luxury automobile manufacturers come with inbuilt telematics, small brands charge extra for automobile electronic accessories. These black box technologies are pushing the cost of cars upwards. In such a scenario, mobile telematics technologies lowers technology cost with the integration of integration of technologies such as Global Positioning System (GPS), Mobility, Cloud and Big Data analytics on smart phones. Advantage for would be vehicle owners.

At a time when deaths caused by accidents are listed as seventh worldwide government, insurers, businesses and the general public, mobile technologies offer hope to reduce risks. Canada is hosting Insurance Telematics Canada 2016 on 28, 29 April at Double Tree Hilton, Toronto. In the previous year 2015 43% of insurance companies attended the event. This year the event intersects auto tech and insurance expecting more attendance to brainstorm.

Prime’s telematics system, Xemplar, enables fast and efficient two-way communication between insurers and customers. Xemplar’s mobile app-based system saves you money on hardware and infrastructure costs while also accommodating any mobile device or tablet; reaching drivers anytime, anywhere, and providing your business with critical information in real-time.

Impact of Technology On The Field of Arts And Entertainment

Nearly everyone enjoys the different types of entertainment, and some people enjoy even more being entertainers. They want to become actors, comedians, dancers, singers. We used to go inside theatres after a hard day’s work to relax and see our favorite plays. But only in the last hundred years have we been able to record sound and pictures and to broadcast them through air. These improvements have brought fun and entertainment to every corner of the world and into most of our homes.

Technology has indeed made it possible for us to see entertainment in a new light. For one, technology has made it also possible for us to store our memories. Actors and singers long dead seem to come to life again every time their films or records are played. We can store a seemingly countless number of these records and films in CDs, hard drives and other storing devices like our computer. This makes it possible for us to entertain ourselves almost anywhere- at home, at the office, at the park, the bus; as long as we bring our devices with us. One can actually live without TV these days as long as one has a computer device and internet connection.

The world of entertainment has grown tremendously, and it can teach us as well as entertain us. Today, broadcasting is the most important form of popular entertainment. But now it is challenged by still newer inventions. Video playback and recording equipments make it possible for home viewers to buy or record their favorite shows. Many classic movies are already available for home viewing. This new equipment may encourage many viewers to spend fewer hours watching network offerings of situation comedies and action dramas. And now, we can record, transfer, and produce our own videos using cellular phones.

At the same time, the internet has revolutionized viewing habits in another way. The internet provides information on a lot of sources for movies, music, and other forms of entertainment. With internet connection, people can bring programs directly into their computer by doing downloads and many of these downloads are offered for free. Not only does it provide entertainment but we can even do some transactions like when you want to buy stun guns online.

The internet offer entertainment on almost all particular interests- music, news, and special information such as stock markets, weather, and social networking. These sources are made available to us faster than ever, as fast as the stun gun effects.  We can update on news even before they get broadcasted on TV through the different websites on the internet.

Never in recorded history have Entertainment and arts been so important in the lives of so many people. Modern inventions such as the internet have put nearly every person within reach of music and drama all day, every day, at home, and away from home. The internet has also made it possible for people not just become viewers but also the performers themselves as they are able to upload their own videos on different sites. The future of entertainment and arts is taking shape through technology and the people themselves.

The Effects of Information Technology on Management

In today’s business climate, technology is advancing more rapidly than many organizations can keep up with. Frequently, a number of the larger corporations, and even small to medium-sized businesses as well, now hire technology consultants and highly educated technical staff to keep their organizations competitive and up to date with the latest technological changes and improved software and equipment that can make their businesses more efficient and productive. However, the advantages for these businesses that do stay informed and up to date with the latest technological changes is that they are able to increase revenues and profits at a faster pace and promulgate the overall success of the company.

Technology is quickly becoming a key factor in any type of business, and the latest technological innovations are what are leading to not only increased sales and exposure, but also less costly methods of marketing and advertising and greatly increased productivity. In manufacturing, many processes that were once performed manually or machines that were operated by manpower are now being operated remotely and run by automated processes. With decreased opportunities for employment in manufacturing and less skilled trades, many workers are gaining an education and expanding their own personal skills to accommodate a changing business environment.

In administrative functions, computers have offered the benefits of readily accessible databases of information and streamlined processes as well. Virtual offices and even telephone answering systems that operate as robotic receptionists have decreased the need for many positions here as well and offered businesses a more cost-effective approach to completing simpler office tasks. In terms of sales, the internet has helped open the doors for increased globalization and the ability to increase profits by reaching more people at one time. As a result, telemarketing and door to door sales calls have become not only unwelcomed by the general public, but also an outdated means of selling goods and services.

While the overall benefit to the end consumer is lower prices, businesses still reap the rewards of these decreased costs of operation and also greater efficiency and organization. For management, the increased reliance on information technology creates a number of issues. In terms of human resources, today’s human resources managers are searching for employees that are well trained with computers and know how to operate the latest technological equipment. In addition, a number of today’s top firms are hiring employees that telecommute or work from a remote location, and managers are now frequently managing teams from in front of a computer.

Another aspect of increased information technology that affects today’s management is security. Hacking, phishing, and other online security threats can create real issues for any type of business, but today’s managers have to be prepared to deal with these kinds of threats, teach the importance of security to employees, and know how to react when security has been breached.

Impact of Technology on Business

Together with the advancement of science and technology, technological innovations grew along with it, resulting to the emergence of new equipment and gadgets. No matter how big or small your company is, technology brings both intangible and tangible benefits to become cost efficient and to meet the growing demands and needs of customers. Technological innovations affect corporate efficiency, culture and relationship among employees, clients, suppliers and customers. The type and quality of technology used affect the security of confidential business information.

Due to the burden brought by administrative tasks, like inventory, bookkeeping and records keeping, both big and small companies rely on computers to do their administrative works. The birth of Internet and online social networking sites tremendously decreased the costs of business operations. It also makes it easier for companies to use the Six Sigma management methodologies. Some firms shifted to outsourcing instead of hiring their own personnel due to the low costs associated with it. Because of the huge impact of technological innovations to companies, it is impossible for them to live with it.

Commonly used high technology equipment:
