Technology (Greek: τεχνολογια < τεχνη "craft" + λογος "doctrine" + suffix ια) is a summary of knowledge about man-made expedient devices that increase individual (human) capabilities (for example, machines, materials and procedures) and their application. names, with the help of which humanity can learn more and more, change, preserve, etc. from the world around him. The technological tools themselves, which help people solve problems in various areas of life, are called tools at a simple level, and techniques at a more advanced level. Technology is knowledge or expertise that is based on the results of engineering science and embodies it, but due to inconsistencies in the use of language, the name of individual fields of expertise is often technique and not technology (for example, military technology, film technology, sound technology, space technology, dental technology, etc.). A technique is one whose solutions are sufficiently complex, precise or "technical", individual and/or resource-intensive to be separated from the person or device that operates or uses it. (If we do not separate it from the human body, then it is called body technique, the main "artistic" production of which is performance. L. The technical character is given by measurement and the use of dimensional data, as opposed to "artistic" solutions that lack this, i.e. informal, dimensionless solutions. Measurement is closely related to the activity, as the word engineer shows, while in English the solution to the production of the machine (engine) was the integrative identifier of the field of knowledge, hence engineering, mechanical engineering, and all "technical, measurement-based technological interventions, mostly standard, standardized , i.e. a production that can be repeated, connected with others and imitated. The most important part of technology as a knowledge or knowledge base is know-how, i.e. simply the description of the knowledge that usually provides a new or innovative solution to some technical problem, therefore they represent a significant material value and can be bought and sold as goods. Know-how is therefore a critical asset of a business, a money-making activity, an intellectual, non-tangible (intangible) asset, a property-valued right, the protection of which has a serious interest for the right holder. Hence the confidential, protected nature of technological knowledge and information, in contrast to other technical sciences (e.g. mechanics, thermomechanics, etc.) that are generally known or considered generic.
