New Technology 2013 – The Course Description Trailer

The Computer Science Department at Reykjavík University offers this Spring term a course called New Technology.

The objective of this course is to look at innovations and technology trends, learn from history, and use theories of innovations to see lessons and try to see patterns so we can evaluate new technology currently emerging and interpret the impact.

In the course we look at how to keep up to date on technology trends. In particular we will look at communications, wireless devices, mobile phones and the TV, home appliances, the Internet and other consumer devices. Many common devices are changing and taking on new roles. The course will discuss what future trends will emerge, which standards and companies will be successful, and the effects that the technology will have on society.

As a term project, students will perform research and write a research paper on technology, its possibilities and effect on society.
