Whatever that means, it is premature if it should last longer as further development, and if meant premature in how it is used, yes - for instance factory farms are creating super anti-biotic resistant bugs, that may be the answer to the overpopulation problem.
Whatever you want to imply with your question, my opinion is that technology is never premature. I think any technology passes through 3 stages:
First stage: PRIMITIVE, the benefits expected from the technology in question are low. In this stage, technology is more a hobby of enthusiasts and farsighted people than a commercial success (example: first automobiles in the early 1900).
Second stage: COMPLEX, on the pursuit of making technologies more reliable, more commercially attractive and by learning more about the nature of the technology, more and more gimmicks are added. (example: introduction of electronic gadgets in automobiles, caused unreliability, wiring problems...)
Third stage: SIMPLE, functional benefits and economic benefits have joined. High reliability. Mass market penetration.
I don´t know which stage you think of when mentioning premature? First or second? To me the most innovative and creative stage is the second stage.
