The age in which we live is an age where science and technology forms an integral part and, thus, it becomes a governing element of the human life. In the present day, almost all of the continents are technologically advanced and are keeping up with the rapid development of the technical aspects that are being developed. America is in its utmost position in the implementation of technology. Europe and Asia are following it and they too have already incorporated what was needed.
Africa has been the continent which was less developed than these continents but presently it does not remain in such a position as it were. It has seen an influential entry of the technology based science which was successful in elevating the continent in such a position where it can be identified as a continent desperately endeavouring to implement scientific features to heighten its condition.
