Dimensions of Technology: Artificial Intelligence Through forms of technology and the greater ability to use it, has made artificial intelligence more powerful than ever, "Artificial Intelligence" is simply creating a machine to create better ideas than the human race. The fact remains scientists and engineers are looking for the next big creation in the tech world. People feel that computer-generated feelings would be just fine if robots made them feel understood. The articles" The Network Primate," by Mark Fischetti (2014), "The Good Tech Gone Bad," by Lev Grossman (2015) and "Calling Dr. Watson," by Jon Gertner (2012) shows how three different perspectives on how the advancement of technology affects the way we feel about technology.
Throughout one’s life there will be conflict and struggle but it is how someone deals with it that defines and shapes the person they are.

If your neighborhood is unsafe, it is not even necessary for you to be a victim of violence to feel the impact. High school students who feel unsafe are more likely to be depressed, be aggressive and achieve less academically. If your family and friends have low aspirations, yours can suffer too. If they have not achieved educational success, a college education, or a job, chances are you won’t either.
