Technology is the application of knowledge to the practical aims of human life or to changing and manipulating the human environment. Technology includes the use of materials, tools, techniques, and sources of power to make life easier or more pleasant and work more productive.

Certaintyimplies a thorough consideration of evidence. Situation in which there is absolutely no doubt about which event will occur, and there is only one state of nature with 100% probability attached.
