Abstract

Currently, the world is undergoing an age of unprecedented technological progress exerting dramatic influences on individual lifestyles, social relations and natural environment. Undoubtedly, Science and Technology (S&T) have proven to be the key drivers of sustainable socioeconomic progress in many parts of the world in recent decades. However, there are serious concerns about the harmful effects of modern technology on society. Such effects include cyber security risks, threats to personal well-being and safety, increasing sense of social isolation, relational problems, cultural breakdowns, technology addiction, environmental hazards and threats to wildlife.
