Hacktivism The world is full of brilliant minds. Because of people’s fascination in discovering new things and ideas, technology is given birth. From then one, the ways of humanity has changed. One of the results brought about by technology is the existence of computers. Computers are now regarded as a necessity because of its various functions.

The ways we can access information is amazing with just one click onto a hyperlink which can lead us into something else and may get distracted. Nicholas Carr states the human brain being flexible, and brings up this idea of “Intellectual Technologies”. The use of the mechanical clock on how it helps create a sense of “belief to an independent world of mathematically measured sequence”. Carr later mentions more about the mechanical clock and when it arrived how people started to think about their brain to operate “like clockwork”. One thing that really stood out to me when Carr talks about the Intellectual Technology is the internet sites or brands that conquer the Internet.
The attraction of artificial intelligence for me lies in its breadth of applicability, both as a method of problem solving in itself and in a symbiotic integration with other areas of computer science. A broad spectrum of applications exist within the artificial intelligence field, ranging from intelligent non-player controlled characters in computer game software to a ubiquitous computing solution that intelligently reacts to a variety of users. This diversity is one of the main reasons that I feel compelled to pursue artificial intelligence further. While I have striven to develop my understanding of artificial intelligence during my undergraduate education, the choreographed requirements of a bachelor's degree have restricted my research to only a minute sample of artificial intelligence’s applications. During my exposure to the field, I have often been unsatisfied with the level of interaction artificial intelligence displays in response to prompts of varying complexity.
Based on the Ipods experiment, students create their own methods for better study. This is one of the reflection of the creativity in the real educational context. People change a lot about because of change of educational context. Also, for a perfect personal development, creativity is the key for students to express themselves and show their abilities. Cathy Davidson point out that: “To be prepare for jobs that have a real future in the digital economy, one needs an emphasis on creative thinking, at all levels…many of these jobs require highly specialized and dexterous problem-solving abilities or interpersonal skills” (60).
André Leblanc states in his Ted Talk Artificial Intelligence and the future, 2015 that technology used to be developed in order to replace human muscles. As a result of this, tasks that previously had to be conducted physically can today be automated by technology and different machines. In contrast, technology has for the last hundred years been developed in order to enhance the human brain. This has resulted in intelligent machines such as the calculator, which is a way of enhancing our ways of doing math. Rodney Brooks, professor in robotics, claims in the article Artificial intelligence is a tool, not a threat, November 10, 2014 in Rethink robotics that recent advances of technology let us teach machines simple things such as to know whether an image is that of a cat or a dog or that it is about to fail if its temperature increases.
While we have discussed the pros and positive effect that technology has had on education, now we will discuss a few cons as well. As technology – based information has had a profound effect on the way people can now educate themselves, the latter also had its demerits. Like most great advancements in modern technology, the internet’s purposes have been altered and are being used for nefarious acts such as plagiarism, invasion of privacy and content theft leading to academic dishonesty in the realm of education. Plagiarism is nothing new to the academic society, as nowadays students tend to ‘copy and paste’ from the internet in order to either please the teacher or to get rid of the assigned work. Furthermore, technology such as the internet has now created opportunities for students to become better cheaters and to digitally copy information from web based sources resulting in new challenges for the educators.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) Artificial intelligence is a division of computer science that aims to fashion smart machines. It has become an important part of the technology industry. Components of Artificial intelligence (AI) • Knowledge • Reasoning • Problem solving • Perception • Learning • Planning • Ability to manipulate and move objects Learning There are a number of diverse forms of learning as applied to artificial intelligence. The simplest is learning by trial and error. For example, a modest computer program for solving mate-in-one chess glitches might try moves at random until mate is found.
It is nothing without the people and information making the “computer-based tools work with or help the information and information-processing needs of an organization” (14). It is used to deal with computers involving software and hardware. It is the process of restoring, retrieving, studying and transmitting data. It made it easier and quicker for the people to get information and communicate with others, but it influenced them in many ways as their behavior and hacking. Information technology provides people with the tools to work with, store, change and share the information that they are
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the ability of the computer to do things that people normally do. It is also an academic field which studies how to create computers that are capable of intelligence behavior. There are three different ways to develop a computer with artificial intelligence. The first method is to build systems that think exactly like people (Hammond, 2015). This is called a ‘strong AI’.

Our generation faces many issues as the world has come to revolve around multitasking. Our generation is so technologically advanced, that people are basically more comfortable have a conversation through text or other non-verbal means, then actually having a face to face conversation with someone. People would rather have an electronic conversation so they can do other tasks while talking with others. A human’s brain cannot switch back and forth between two tasks effectively. Your brain starts thinking about one thing and when you switch to the other task, it must change its course.
