Engineers, scientists, and computer programmers use digital systems for many purposes, from inventing a better car to landing spacecrafts on Mars. But they are not the only ones who create this way. Every day the average person uses digital tools to research and develop new applications used in healthcare, manufacturing, agriculture, communications, and e-commerce to make our lives easier. Nevertheless, in the era of cleaning robots and voice-activated cars, some question whether the gadgets revolution will usher in a techno utopia or enslave its users to technology. Digital Research: Inventing with Computers examines how scientists and researchers use digital systems to produce the tools and gadgets that we use in our everyday lives. It also looks at the effects technology has had on quality of life and how the applications of digital systems have impacted our culture and society. As each flashy, new gadget or software program debuts on the market, many people scramble to keep up with the latest technological developments. Designed to make life easier, faster, and better, the hype of these digital advances frequently overshadow the effects these convenient gadgets have on society. The Digital World explores how the creation and use of digital systems has forever changed the way we work, live, and communicate with one another.
