Today is the first class of this course. As an overseas student who just changed his major, I felt a little difficult to understand the video content in the course at the beginning, maybe for language reasons. In the class, we learned some concepts about innovation.
Innovation refers to the activities of expanding the objective world and the process and results of human cognition and behavior in order to meet their own needs. Or to be more specific, innovation refers to the activities in which people, for a certain purpose, follow the law of the development of things and transform the whole or part of things so that they can be renewed and developed.
I am thinking that at the beginning, bronze ware was invented for better planting needs, iron farm tools improved the reliability of farm tools, claville sailing ships in the age of great navigation adapted to the strong winds and big waves of the Atlantic Ocean, and the invention of steam engine during the industrial revolution improved the efficiency of production. Innovation is basically all about meeting a human need.
