What is Technology? (Day 1 of 3)

What is Technology? will examine interactions and transactions among practical arts and tools, techniques and processes, moral knowledge and imagination, to navigate our everchanging world. In a broad sense, technology can be understood as methods of intelligent inquiry and problem-solving into all domains of life. This year enacts a collaborative network of research by cultivating information and communication as the heart of science, technology, engineering, art, medicine, and environments.
