Technology helps the medical community find discoveries to illnesses much faster. Technology is also useful in the agricultural community. Advances in technology enhance worker productivity and business operations.
Technology is vital in the area of stem cell research, the process of using healthy cells to cure a host of diseases and problems, including spinal injuries, heart disease and diabetes. These cells can come from various places, including bone marrow, the placenta, umbilical blood and fetuses. The process transforms general cells into specialized ones that match certain organs; these cells can then turn into certain tissue types and are also capable of replacing damaged cells.
Technology makes agricultural labor more productive as more farmers rely on GPS devices, automated steering and computers. Technology also prevents farmers from wasting seed, fuel and fertilizers. The fields of genetic engineering and nanotechnology are revolutionizing some agricultural tasks. Technology provides electric farming equipment which benefit the environment and promise greater fuel efficiency.
Technology also allows owners to automate tasks and functions in areas previously occupied by employees. Bookkeeping duties can be handled digitally, and automation reduces labor costs. Technological advances allow businesses to become more efficient and foster better communication with customers. Owners and managers are able to store information digitally instead of storing papers at a physical location.
