2.1 IN-PROGRESS CTE031 - History of technology   @study

A course on how technology has shaped and influenced our society and what impact it has had on our history.

Course responsible: Per Lundin

2.1.1 IN-PROGRESS Lectures

2.1.2 Assignments

  1. Assignment 1

    Ekonomihistorikern Joel Mokyr (1990a) tar upp olika förklaringsfaktorer till varför teknisk förändring äger rum i vissa samhällen och inte i andra. Vilka av dessa faktorer menar Mokyr (1990b) är mest relevanta för att förklara var som skiljer det medeltida Europas tekniska utveckling från antikens? Diskutera med utgångspunkt i Pacey (1992) hur ekonomiska faktorer å ena sidan och kulturella (eller ideella) å den andra format det medeltida Europas tekniska utveckling. Beskriv även samspelet mellan dessa två faktorer. Använd den angivna litteraturen när du besvarar frågan! Använd gärna exempel från litteraturen för att tydliggöra dina resonemang! Obligatorisk litteratur: Mokyr (1990a), Mokyr (1990b) och Pacey (1992).

2.1.3 Literature

  1. IN-PROGRESS Literature from the first lecture
    • [ ]

      Mokyr, Joel, “Understanding Technological Progress”, i The Lever of the Riches: Technological Creativity and Economic Progress (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1990a), 151–192.

      Risk aversion, leisure preference, and time preference are thus of major importance in determining the rate of innovation of a particular society

      In some cases, technological changes had powerful environmental consequences such as pollution and deforestation. Not all such changes need be destructive, but insofar as they imply changing nature from its virgin state, they usually involve some cost.

      Technologically creative societies in the past, as in the present, can be defined as those that generated innovations whose benefits dwarfed the costs of invention and development and thus created a free lunch.

      The sentiment "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" is the archenemy of technological progress.

  2. TODO Read Basalla 1998

    This is referenced in the first lecture and talks about the how the polynesians discarded their technologic advancements.

2.2 CANCELLED TDA251 - Algorithms, advanced course   @study

A continuation course on algorithms that continues where the first algorithms ended. This course discusses what happens when a problem is NP-complete.
