The greater part of our modern world has been formed thanks to the achievements of the industrial revolution.
The Industrial Revolution is a period when the agrarian and artisanal economy quickly switched to an industrial one, but with a predominance of machine production. This economic transformation not only changed the way in which work was done and goods were produced, but it also changed people attitude towards each other and to the planet, in particular. Such a global change in social organization continues to this today, and over that time it affected plenty of various spheres like political, environmental and cultural ones.
The Industrial Revolution has made plenty of great contributions to society, the most significant of which are:
- greater affordability of goods;
- the rapid development of labour-saving inventions;
- rapid development of medicine;
- better quality of life of an average person.
Currently, we are on the cusp of a new technological revolution that will fundamentally change the way we live, work and relate to one another. Thus, more and more companies are being created where progress is being made. One of these is the Lifeasapa Foundation, founded in 2013. The mission of the project is to transfer life-changing innovations from the laboratory to society as soon as possible. The goal of the Life Asapa is to solve problems that are scalable to the entire planet. In the beginning, it was a non-public research project which united scientists in some kind of community of people, who share similar, innovative interests. But on January 19, 2016, the company decided to broaden its community and show the whole world their achievements and goals. At the same time holding conferences, assigning grants for students and start-up companies.
So what is the result?
The Industrial Revolution has a huge potential to raise global income levels and improve the quality of people’s lives around the world. Technology has made possible the appearance of new products and services, which directly impact our efficiency and enjoyment of our personal lives. Ordering a taxi, booking a flight, purchasing a product, listening to music, watching a movie or playing a game – all of this can now be done within two clicks. Nowadays, technologies are emerging in almost every industry, this way creating entirely new ways to look at our existing needs and daily lives.
