It stresses the ambivalent role that technology plays in her thought. Arendt affirms, on the one hand, the political neutrality of technology; but, on the other hand, she foresees that the future modification of the human condition, thanks to technology, could lead to a stage of such passivity that humanity abandons itself to an endless vital process in which a properly human world is no longer possible.</p> Julián García Labrador Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

However, it is often difficult to understand what this term is meant to describe. I examine the claims of two movements that use this term: transhumanism and posthumanism. These movements are presented in the context of humanism. Both movements present how technologies are changing human autonomy and how posthuman beings arise out of this change. I formalise and critique these accounts of the posthuman. I conclude that neither movement adequately explains the transition from the human to the posthuman.</p> Jaroslav Malík Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

We implement an algorithm that analyzes two types of images: color and thermal, to measure the distance between people. We used the Fast R-CNN neural network; the images with videos were extracted from the DJI Pilot application. The objective is to identify the distance between people. The results obtained show that the proposed algorithm is suitable for monitoring the city.</p> Ruth de Jesus Ramirez Rejas, Ricardo Linares Juarez, Hugo Manuel Barraza Vizcarra, Edgar Taya Acosta Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

This article shares the experience of a COIL developed by teams of students from Colombia and Peru, based on a research idea in the field of education, describing the step-by-step process and analyzing its contribution to the teaching, learning and assessment process from the participants' perspectives.</p> Marisol Esperanza Cipagauta Moyano Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

We are living a new reality of Digital Economy, where technological innovation has a great impact on how projects are managed. This article has the objective to identify what Project Managers appropriate profile should be in order to face this new reality, taking advantage of using new digital technologies to increase the probability of projects' success and contribute with added value to the economy, the environment, and society. It is also presented the model proposed by Green Project Management, oriented to sustainability, and is also emphasized the importance of identifying the best approach to follow in the development of a new project in this Digital Economy era, knowing that besides the traditional predictive and agile approaches, there are rising new hybrid approaches, gathering the positive characteristics of the both of them.</p> António Cabeças Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

President Vladimir Putin's order to put Russia's nuclear deterrent forces on high alert has raised fears of a possible "nuclear war" amid the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Through a descriptive historical method of the operation of nuclear weapons during the Cold War, this article has as its main objective, the outline of a forecast on the nuclear risk, in the current crisis between Russia and Ukraine.</p> Carolina Fuentes Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

This research follows a quasi-experimental design with pre-tests and post-tests comparing the influence on cognitive and affective variables of a STEM practice versus an academic-expositional methodology in secondary school. The results show statistically significant differences between groups, concluding that it is essential to select active and practical methodologies that integrate scientific-technological knowledge, fostering the development of positive emotions and the ability to learn.</p> Guadalupe Martínez-Borreguero, Francisco Javier Cámara Acedo, Milagros Mateos Núñez, Francisco Luis Naranjo Correa Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

This paper considers whether this lack of visibility also occurs in social networks, a highly relevant showcase for students who spend a large part of their time in these environments. We present a mixed research, with quantitative surveys to both faculty (n=250) and students (n=990) of the University of Cadiz (UCA) and structured interviews (n=10) to an equal sample of male and female deans.</p> Leticia Rodríguez Fernández, Belén Macías-Varela, Esther Simancas-González Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

Through laboratory dynamics, the students learned and applied consumer and preference research techniques in the field of sensory marketing, with an immersion connected between the university classroom and the business Atelier in the Spanish dermo-cosmetic sector.</p> Marta Gotor Cuairán, Dolores Lucía Sutil Martín, María Asunción Sacristán Navarro Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

A review is carried out by means of expert judgment, calculation of internal consistency by means of Cronbach's alpha and factor analysis. It was applied to a sample of 504 professionals. The level of internal consistency is high (0.891) and shows a factorial structure in eight factors that explain 60.2 of the variance. The proposed tool is useful for its objectives. We highlight the interest of the tool due to the interrelation of the three measures.</p> Alejandro Martínez Pérez, Fernando Lezcano-Barbero, Raquel Casado-Muñoz, Rebeca Zabaleta-González Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

One of the fundamental factors of this highly complex medium is the study of its visual and immersive features. From this arises the need to establish a series of information representation standards, taking into account factors such as the degree of virtuality or iconicity (level of representation), trying to establish the bases for the development of an XR Paradigm exportable to other dimensions.</p> José Luis Rubio Tamayo, Manuel Gértrudix Barrio Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.
