create, generate,engender,spawn,induce

Technological innovations have brought about profound changes to the political, economic and cultural arenas.

Can I use "created" or "generated" or "engendered" or "spawned" or "induced" instead of "brought about" here?

Thank you

In some of those cases the meaning would be slightly different. For example, to "bring about" is not the same as to "create". A common replacement would be "cause" but out of your list I think the best one is "spawned".
