Technology is changing how we live, work, and interact with others and the world.

Speed, breadth, and depth are unequaled. And they will affect every nation's industry–changing environmental protection even. Technological innovation has always sought smarter ways to promote human flourishing. As our society faces enormous difficulties, technology may allow us to decouple prosperity and environmental damage. But let’s be clear, no amount of technology will ever surpass nature's technology. It has been perfected over hundreds of millions of years to keep life on Earth afloat. Our civilization's prosperity depends on a fruitful, diverse natural environment and a stable climate. Our careless attitude toward healthy natural systems like forests, seas, and river basins (all rooted and nourished by biodiversity) has been a difficulty in previous technological revolutions.

So, what's next for technology in the environmental scene?

Recent global concern for climate change and environmental destruction has led to the development of innovative and modern environmental technology that aims to tackle some of our major environmental challenges by shifting to a sustainable, low-carbon economy. Modern environmental technology allows us to gather naturally existing energy and turn it into power or heat using wind and water turbines, solar panels, which has a positive impact on the environment. Increased WiFi, Bluetooth, and smart sensors in buildings and cities have enabled Internet of Things environmental technologies. Experts anticipate that cities of the future will be networked, thus creating energy-efficient "smart cities." Electric car production has increased since 2008 due to the goal to minimize air pollution and greenhouse gases, and it will continue.

As for our benefit, many others voiced enthusiasm for the future of healthcare and how artificial intelligence (AI) could diagnose and treat patients and help the elderly. They were also excited about AI's contribution to public health programs based on personal genomes and nutrition data. Many scientists predict that artificial intelligence (AI) will help change formal and informal schooling. However, many academics expressed concern about the long-term impact of these new technologies on humanity, whether they were hopeful or not. Non-scientists were asked if AI would benefit humans, and many people voiced concerns.

As we continue to move forward with every bit of technology we can come up with, we need to always remember that even in the future, our issues will be the same as they are today. We'd still rely on technical systems, devices, and networks to get the things we want and stay away from the things we don't want.
