Policy in the Cyber Age – Week 4 21 September 2016 Transformation Why is 'transformation' a word that we use to describe the current influence of new technologies in toe way we live, learn, d business, etc? Transformation is defined as a dramatic change, and that's precisely what we have seen with the surge in technological advancement. • The advent of phones: Instant, live, communication without having to be in the same place as the other person • Mobile phones with intern et access: Business begins to permeate everyday life • The iPhone: A computer that you carry in your pocket. If business hadn't already invaded your free time, now the personal and professional life have blurred together. • Sports, research, speed, travel, One discovery that changed things - the transformative step in technology - : the integrated circuit • We typically don't like change, so at the beginning of change we typically find an excessive amount of denial. • Disruption is what upsets us. • Change comes at a cost o Industrial Revolution - the extinction of small businesses and increase in mass production 5 October - Midterm (in class, bring notes and articles) 9 November - Movie Script due Instructions to be uploaded this week Follows the format of a movie script (courier, 1.5 space, 5 -7 pgs) Imagine the way government should be in the world that we live today (efficient) Transformative view of the way government could be if they were maximizing the use of all the tools that we have at our disposal Movies to watch: HER (about the guy that falls in love with his OS; the way technology plays is beyond what we would expect now) Ex machina Continuation of Lo and Behold Movie: Simulated realities Internet addiction Radiation sickness The lack of laws dealing with ethics in cyberspace Ironically the development of connection has become the plague of isolation. It affects us as citizens. How has technology affected the social development of generations differently?
