Reads as they have excess funding and looking for ways to use that.

Sci Fi is past its golden age and in the past, authors made good stories without sinking that much in technicalities. Today, the technician point of view prevails.
Does it add to believability? I am not sure about that. In the past, major pieces took technology shortctut without explaining the how. Things just happened.

Today, sci fi books reading turns into a contest to find the technological inaccuracies. That sums up the reviewing of Sci Fi books today. What about the story?

Additionally, most people live without understanding the basics of technology surrounding them so why should that be different in a future world?

Excess funding to be used. I expect that lengthy paragraphs dedicated to show that money was put on hiring scientific consultants. Just for the sake of it.
