INTRODUCTIONThe main purpose of the present essay is to describe contemporary (modern) computingconcept using two stories including “Roboticistslearn to teach robots from babies”and“Increased the resolution of conventional 3-D imaging devices 1000 times faster as compared toprevious one”. In this regard, Actor network theory has been applied andActants are categorizedinto present stories in order tocompare and contrast the viewpoints of a range of theorists in asignificant manner.MAIN BODYActor-Network Theory (ANT):It is also known as the sociology of translation and enrolmenttheory. For the purpose of exploring collective socio-technical processes and emphasize onparticular attention to science and technologic activity, ANT theory can be applied. It isprocessoriented theory and it is applied in the context of developing new emerging technologies andtheir impact on societies (Latour, 2005). By employing this theory, an individual will be able tounderstand the construction and transformation of heterogeneous networks. Keys conceptsassociated with ANT framework can be enlisted as follow.Actant:Agent, collective or individual can be an actant which is responsible for scientificproduction such as a policy maker, a user and an information system.Actor network:In a heterogeneous network, computer systems, policy makers and usersare present to enclose the facts and fictions are and their impact on collective activity(Actor network theory, 2004).Event:In order to explainthe analyzed situation and framed a network of heterogeneouselement, an action that has transformed can be defined as event.Translation:This term can be explored in form of harness “scientific evidence” and textsinto inscriptions to define specific issue. Translation activity is generally raised betweenhuman actors and non-human actors (Hitomi, Silva and Ruppert, 2015).Reasons for suitability of Actor Network TheoryANT is apowerful qualitative research framework and it isa process of heterogeneousengineering. The rationale behind to apply this network theory is to determine the collectivesocio-technical processes with help of exploring two stories. With help of applying thisframework, investigator would be able todescribe the stories related toteach robots from babiesand 3 D imaging sensors (Giannuzzi, 2015). In addition, this theory allows researcher to1
