INTRODUCTIONComputing is considered as a process that helps in effective use of computer technologyin order to accomplish task. By having use of computers the individual or group can meet theirneeds in appropriate manner. Further, computing includes involvement of the computer eitherwith the help of hardware or software. Key motive of computing is to have proper participationof diverse computer devices in order to have completion of task (Alcadipani and Hassard, 2010).It has been noticed that the computing mainly focuses on effective designing of system,development and structuring of hardware and software system. It is also significant to have betterprocessing so that information about different factors can be managed in appropriate manner. Incurrent report, two news stories in respect to computing will be analysed, along with use of ActorNetwork Theory. However, the learning will provide preview of modern computing aspects andmake understand about their acts benefits.ACTOR NETWORK THEORY AND ITS RELEVANCYActor Network Theory (ANT) is referred as one of most commonly used technique whichis adopted by information system researchers. Current study provides argument in regard toutility of actor network theory. It is also considered as conceptual framework for informationsystem researcher. In addition to this, it can be said that the theory is significant approach thatoriginates in respect to the social science which generally have affection on objects as a part ofsocial networks (Armbrust and et.al. 2010). It has also been noticed that the ANT is mostconstructive approach which helps in avoiding essential explanations for recent events andinnovations. It means it also facilitates in building better relationship with those entities whohave dealings in the fields of sociology and anthropology.In detailed study, it has been noticed that the existence of one critical factors allows tohave effective application of theory in the field of information system research. It is because theapplication of theory helps in presenting the difference between human and non- human inontological level. ANT also provides graphical presentation in order to understand the diverseviews exists in the theory (Farias and Bender, 2012). It is also referred as freeze frame process inwhich network of actors is considered as significant aspect for particular time period. Theoryalso helps in reflection of dynamics nature of actor network as per the consideration of time linedesigned for the event. In addition to this, the actors that present their right in appropriate manner3
