System of postulates, data, and inferences presented as a mathematical description of a phenomenon such as an actual system or process The actual phenomenon is represented by the model in order to explain it, to predict it, and to control it. Representation of a process or system that can be controlled to demonstrate the effects that various actions will have on the process or system.
Prototype or surrogate of a complex situation It can be a physical model, such as an architectural model of urban design, or a mathematical model of interactions of many variables It is used in simulations for relating various components together or can be a stand alone tool to evaluate different approaches using different assumptions Recent use of personal computer tools allows many types of software to effectively answer questions such as 'what if I increase the growth rate'; these too are models.
Mathematical and geometric projection of activity and the interactions in the transportation system in an area This projection must be able to be evaluated according to a given set of criteria which might include land use, economics, social values, and travel patterns.
Mathematical formula designed to price an option as a function of certain variables - generally stock price, striking price, volatility, time to expiration, dividends to be paid, and the current risk-free interest rate The Black-Scholes model is one of the more widely used models. Circulation model is any mathematical simulation used to forecast overall financials and circulation levels or revenue Although most modeling today is done with computers, some companies still work models manually, with spreadsheets List modeling is the practice of using statistical tools, such as regression analysis , to identify particularly good or poor prospects for the purpose of enhancing response.
In fisheries science, a description of something that cannot be directly observed Often a set of equations and data used to make estimates. Graphical representation of the thing that is to be made, modified, or understood Some of such things cannot be actually observed and felt until they are built while some others cannot be easily understood without the models A preliminary design work that serves as a plan from which a final product is to be made Models are used to understand, design, and then construct complicated things or concepts such as buildings, machines, and computers, programs that run on the computers, aircrafts, processes, and theories.
Model is a particular case of the Modeling Relation which commutes That is it is a successful encoding of a percept into a formal system, the use of that formal system to 'explain' the causal event in the real world, and a decoding back to the real world to compare and confirm the congruence between the implication in the formal system and the causal event in nature [Don Mikulecky, Dec 21, ].
An interpretation in which expressions of interest to us come out true for that interpretation See interpretation; isomorphism of models; true for an interpretation.
An analytical tool used by transportation planners to assist in making forecasts of land use, economic activity, travel activity and their effects on the quality of resources such as land, air and water.
System that describes or predicts an associated process based on the definition of variables, rules and equations A properly-defined model enables analyzing the possible effects of changes in the underlying process based on changes in the model.
An object that defines, in Entity-Relationship terms, the mapping between enterprise object classes and the database schema This definition is typically stored in a file created with the EOModeler application A model also includes the information needed to connect to a particular database server. To make a copy or a pattern; to design or imitate forms; as, to model in wax. The act of representing something representation of something a type of product; 'his car was an old model' a simplified description of a complex entity or process; 'the computer program was based on a model of the circulatory and respiratory systems' a representative form or pattern; 'I profited from his example' a person who poses for a photographer or painter or sculptor; 'the president didn't have time to be a model so the artist worked from photos' someone worthy of imitation; 'every child needs a role model' form in clay, wax, etc; 'model a head with clay' construct a model of; 'model an airplane' create a representation or model of; 'The pilots are trained in conditions simulating high-altitude flights' plan or create according to a model or models display as a mannequin; 'model the latest fashion' assume a posture as for artistic purposes; 'We don't know the woman who posed for Leonardo so often'.
As such, Winner neither succumbs to technological determinism nor social determinism. The source of a technology's politics is determined only by carefully examining its features and history.
Although "The deterministic model of technology is widely propagated in society" Sarah Miller , it has also been widely questioned by scholars. Lelia Green explains that, "When technology was perceived as being outside society, it made sense to talk about technology as neutral".
Yet, this idea fails to take into account that culture is not fixed and society is dynamic. When "Technology is implicated in social processes, there is nothing neutral about society" Lelia Green. This confirms one of the major problems with "technological determinism and the resulting denial of human responsibility for change. There is a loss of human involvement that shape technology and society" Sarah Miller. Another conflicting idea is that of technological somnambulism , a term coined by Winner in his essay "Technology as Forms of Life".
Winner wonders whether or not we are simply sleepwalking through our existence with little concern or knowledge as to how we truly interact with technology. In this view, it is still possible for us to wake up and once again take control of the direction in which we are traveling Winner However, it requires society to adopt Ralph Schroeder 's claim that, "users don't just passively consume technology, but actively transform it".
In opposition to technological determinism are those who subscribe to the belief of social determinism and postmodernism. Social determinists believe that social circumstances alone select which technologies are adopted, with the result that no technology can be considered "inevitable" solely on its own merits.
Technology and culture are not neutral and when knowledge comes into the equation, technology becomes implicated in social processes. The knowledge of how to create and enhance technology, and of how to use technology is socially bound knowledge. Postmodernists take another view, suggesting that what is right or wrong is dependent on circumstance. They believe technological change can have implications on the past, present and future.
Media and cultural studies theorist Brian Winston , in response to technological determinism, developed a model for the emergence of new technologies which is centered on the Law of the suppression of radical potential. In two of his books — Technologies of Seeing: Photography, Cinematography and Television and Media Technology and Society — Winston applied this model to show how technologies evolve over time, and how their 'invention' is mediated and controlled by society and societal factors which suppress the radical potential of a given technology.
Lynn White is credited with first drawing this parallel between feudalism and the stirrup in his book Medieval Technology and Social Change , stating that as "it made possible mounted shock combat ", the new form of war made the soldier that much more efficient in supporting feudal townships White, 2. According to White, the superiority of the stirrup in combat was found in the mechanics of the lance charge: In focusing on the evolution of warfare, particularly that of cavalry in connection with Charles Martel 's "diversion of a considerable part of the Church's vast military riches Under the new brand of warfare garnered from the stirrup, White implicitly argues in favor of technological determinism as the vehicle by which feudalism was created.
Though an accomplished work, White's Medieval Technology and Social Change has since come under heavy scrutiny and condemnation. The most volatile critics of White's argument at the time of its publication, P.
Hilton, call the work as a whole "a misleading adventurist cast to old-fashioned platitudes with a chain of obscure and dubious deductions from scanty evidence about the progress of technology Sawyer and Hilton, White been prepared to accept the view that the English and Norman methods of fighting were not so very different in the eleventh century, he would have made the weakness of his argument less obvious, but the fundamental failure would remain: Despite the scathing review of White's claims, the technological determinist aspect of the stirrup is still in debate.
Roland views White's focus on technology to be the most relevant and important aspect of Medieval Technology and Social Change rather than the particulars of its execution: Can historians of technology continue to read and assign a book that is, in the words of a recent critic, "shot through with over-simplification, with a progression of false connexions between cause and effect, and with evidence presented selectively to fit with [White's] own pre-conceived ideas"?
The answer, I think, is yes, at least a qualified yes Roland, Roland neither views technological determinism as completely dominant over history nor completely absent as well; in accordance with the above criterion of technological determinist structure, would Roland be classified as a "soft determinist". Friedman , American journalist, columnist and author, admits to being a technological determinist in his book The World is Flat. Futurist Raymond Kurzweil 's theories about a technological singularity follow a technologically deterministic view of history.
Some interpret Karl Marx as advocating technological determinism, with such statements as "The Handmill gives you society with the feudal lord: Technological determinist Walter Ong reviews the societal transition from an oral culture to a written culture in his work "Orality and Literacy. He furthers this argument by claiming that writing is purely context dependent as it is a "secondary modelling system" 8. Reliant upon the earlier primary system of spoken language, writing manipulates the potential of language as it depends purely upon the visual sense to communicate the intended information.
Furthermore, the rather stagnant technology of literacy distinctly limits the usage and influence of knowledge, it unquestionably effects the evolution of society. In fact, Ong asserts that "more than any other single invention, writing has transformed human consciousness" Ong Media determinism is a form of technological determinism, a philosophical and sociological position which posits the power of the media to impact society. One of the best examples of technological determinism in media theory is Marshall McLuhan's theory " the medium is the message " and the ideas of his mentor Harold Adams Innis.
Both these Canadian theorists saw media as the essence of civilization. The association of different media with particular mental consequences by McLuhan and others can be seen as related to technological determinism. It is this variety of determinism that is referred to as media determinism. For McLuhan, media is a more powerful and explicit determinant than is the more general concept of language.
McLuhan was not necessarily a hard determinist. As a more moderate version of media determinism, he proposed that our use of particular media may have subtle influences on us, but more importantly, it is the social context of use that is crucial.
Media determinism is a form of the popular dominant theory of the relationship between technology and society. In a determinist view, technology takes on an active life of its own and is seen be as a driver of social phenomena. Innis believed that the social, cultural, political, and economic developments of each historical period can be related directly to the technology of the means of mass communication of that period.
