Essay on Computer Science: Key for Modern Day Innovation

985 Words4 Pages
The rate of innovation is said to be approaching an all-tome low point similar to the Dark Ages, that is, zero. However, there is a large border between innovation in the past and innovation today. This is because major branches of technology have already been discovered. One example of a major branch of technology is ICT. Consequently, Computer Science and the Internet could revolutionize the modern world and make tasks, known as difficult beforehand, simpler and could potentially increase innovation rate tenfold. Innovation growth may be plummeting down, although, Smart (2005) believes on the contrary. According to him, innovation, today, is very reliant on technology.

The rate of innovation is said to be approaching an all-tome low point similar to the Dark Ages, that is, zero. However, there is a large border between innovation in the past and innovation today. This is because major branches of technology have already been discovered. One example of a major branch of technology is ICT. Consequently, Computer Science and the Internet could revolutionize the modern world and make tasks, known as difficult beforehand, simpler and could potentially increase innovation rate tenfold. Innovation growth may be plummeting down, although, Smart (2005) believes on the contrary. According to him, innovation, today, is very reliant on technology. Due to this, the rate of innovation is skyrocketing at the cost of unpredictability. The rate of innovation is becoming too fast that the human race could not predict where it is going in 20 years forward, approximately, 2020 up to 2040. However, since innovation now relies too heavily on complex systems and complicated computing, the rate seems to slow down because the human mind could not grasp its speed. These are only one of the many reasons to shift into using ICT. The invention of a computer aroused from the need to lessen human error. Thus, a need to manage technological innovation arises. Dodgson, Gann, and Salter (2008) define management of technological innovation, also known as MTI, as the repetitive process of improving and refining ideas. Globalization could be attained far easier since there
