Technology (Greek technologia (τεχνολογία) < techne (τέχνη) "craft" + -ologia (-ολογία) "science or discipline") is the application of developments in science and engineering to benefit humanity. It may be defined as: "Solutions for real human problems by the development and application of tools, machines, materials, goods, or information in the form of skills, knowledge, processes, blueprints, plans, diagrams, models, formulae, tables, engineering designs, specifications, manuals, or instructions."

Technicians prepare a patient for cryopreservation
Cryonics is the low-temperature preservation of humans and animals that can no longer be sustained by contemporary medicine until resuscitation may be possible in the future. Currently, human cryopreservation is not reversible, which means that it is not currently possible to bring people out of cryopreservation. The rationale for cryonics is that people who are dead by the current legal or medical definitions are not necessarily dead by the information-theoretic definition of death and that people could be brought out of cryopreservation in the future.

In the United States, cryonics can only be legally performed on humans after they have been pronounced legally dead.

The word cryonics is derived from the Greek word κρύος (kryos), meaning cold.
