Digital Revolution in early 1950’s Annotated Bibliography

1. Candela, Leonardo, et al. “History, Evolution, and Impact of Digital Libraries.”

This study is the collective work of Leonardo Candela, Donatella Castelli, and Pasquale Pagano. They are associated with the national research council. They emphasized that due to the digital revolution, digital libraries have also played a pivotal role in our knowledgeable society. The wealth of material and sources contained in libraries, archives, and museums or any repository worldwide available, has given the citizens an opportunity to explore the cultural heritage and make it their academic use. They are revolutionizing the entire academic and educational lifecycle. In their work, they addressed that it is history that is characterizing knowledge enabling technologies. It is history that led to the digital revolution. History started in the early attempts towards the system that supports discovering expertise and reached to present age, where the plethora of various revolutions coexist. The main milestones that have been achieved and those, which are yet to accomplish, wholly produced with the instances of knowledge enabling systems and effects of these systems are discussed.

  1. Shannon, C. E. “(1948),” A Mathematical Theory of Communication,” Bell System Technical Journal, vol. 27, pp. 379-423 & 623-656, July & October.” (1948).

Claud. Shannon introduced the concepts, information theory, formulations, and insights that laid a foundation for modern communication technology. A bell lab’s Mathematician has credit to lay down the foundations of digitalization. The Digital revolution enabled the conversion of technology into digital format. A significant part of their guidance for him comes from his two-folded 1948 monumental paper. The paper explains; how a single person had an impact on the digital revolution and communication. It was about the focus on problems regarding, how best we can do to encode the information that the sender wants to transmit. The probability theory was applied and used by him to define the contrast and importance of technological changes. It would not be wrong to say, the digital revolution including the internet was the culmination of a communication revolution with the application of Boolean theory to digital and communication applications.

It is an article that describes the overall history. It says, similar to the Industrial and Agricultural revolution, the inception of the information age was marked by the digital revolution. It was a momentous shift from electrical technology to digital technology which had begun in the early 1950s to late 70s. Due to this, the proliferation and adoption of digital computers and record-keeping are still present today. This term also shows the changes brought by communication technology and digital computing in the latter half of the 20th century. The technical innovations renovated the different business and production methods. Digital communication became economically important, adoption of which was widespread after the computer was invented. In 1947, the Germanium transistor was demonstrated by the Bell Labs; this was the work of William Shockey and his team in a particular section. Thus, the whole article explains the different stages of a digital revolution.

  1. “Thinking Ahead – Essays On Big Data, Digital Revolution, And Participatory Market Society.” Google Books. N. p., 2018. Web. 09 Feb. 2018.

The author of this book is physicist Dirk Helbing, professor of computational social sciences. He has presented the significant impacts of the digital revolution on our economy and society. Some questions that the author says, were never asked, are how did we get into mass observation? Where are they going to lead us? What will be the consequences of these technologies were misused? He writes, that we see a third industrial revolution, and we are in the middle of the digital revolution; which changes our economy and is leading us to the digital society. This process has not been noticed and observed by citizens, politicians, and businesses. Historically, communities went through many transformations, and the digital revolution would be leading the citizens. If constitutional rights would not be undermined by politicians and businesses, it will fail sooner. He emphasizes the better utilization of digitalization because it would affect the whole human kind.

  1. Kadanakuppe, Sushi, et al. “Digital Revolution: Informatics for Oral Healthcare Profession.” Digital Revolution: Informatics for Oral Healthcare Profession, IV, no. I, Jan. 2015.

Kadanakuppe has worked with three scholars and presented a journal article about the significance of the digital revolution in oral health care. Three of the scholars are doctors in India whereas, the fourth one is working in Chicago as a doctor. Information or digital technology extra-ordinarily revolutionized the healthcare profession. Human mental skills have been substituted with electronic circuits. The impact of IT was held responsible for the vast revolution that has progressed through 3 stages; 1) data and software connectivity, 2) electrical connectivity, and 3) information connectivity. Network computing is bringing the world closer to the exchange of information among different health-oriented professionals, and making it a global village. It seems very helpful for improved communication among experts. The author suggests dental teaching institutions need to redesign the curriculum by encompassing the field of IT. Hence, it is predictable to continually embrace dental informatics with the help of the digital revolution and information technology. To improvise dentistry, then the regulatory bodies have to cope with the technological advancements because the knowledge of humans is exponentially increasing every ten years.

The ‘Digital Revolution’ has been a long journey that continues moving forward even today, which has had a countless number of heroes, some of them crossing paths and some of them working alone. There is an underlying interconnection amongst each of the evidential achievements in the digital age, which can only be seen when someone takes a step back and looks at the whole big picture. That is what Walter Isaacson has bravely attempted to do in  The Innovators.
