Technology has become a significant change agent in all aspects of our lives. We are more aware of the world, how we learn, travel, bank, and communicate. How we understand and evaluate these trends and effects of technology on Knowledge Society is very essential.Trends and Effects of Technology Advancement in the Knowledge Society brings together academicians, industry professionals, policymakers, politicians, and government officers to look at the impact of information technology, and the knowledge-based era it is creating, on key facets of today’s world: the state, business, society, and culture. This title anchors government policies and examines the characteristics of the emerging knowledge intensive economy and social environment and investigates the “soft” and “hard” aspects of the knowledge society, providing organizational and cultural frameworks, as well as infrastructures enabled by the evolution of information technologies.
