“Most dystopian, classic, and contemporary, paints a future world that puts a twist on present society - a future world that could plausibly happen” (Lauren DeStefano). Many people put efforts in making their society perfect and equal, but don 't realize the opportunities that are being threatened for the individuals. The change you put out to fix the world, will come back at you and most certainly happen in the future. It 's important to see how perspectives can change the present into a worse future.

Technology plays a significant role in every aspect of our lives. It is what separates modern society from an archaic past. It’s open-endedness and potential for great change make it nearly impossible to gain a complete understanding of its effects. Without this overarching understanding, many of us develop an improper indication of how powerful these advances could become. As a result, we fear what we don’t know and artificial intelligence is often Enemy Number One.
In this day and age, almost every single person uses technology in some way. It has become a necessity for a human to survive. The pace of technological advances has immensely increased over the last few decades to ease our lives and provide us more opportunities. Though it is undeniable that technology has changed our lives, tech critics argue that the Internet and other related technological gadgets have a deleterious effect on the human brain performance. However, the new advancement of technology has brought us a new kind of intelligence making us smarter and has made complexity simpler than ever.

The books, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, and Feed by M.T. Anderson, each describes a dystopian future where technology is dominant, and literature is close to extinction. In these futures, technology causes humans to dumb down. While societies strict social standards creates each person to be similar to one another, allowing groups to be manipulated easier. The books have a similar theme; don 't let technology get out of control. In Fahrenheit 451 's future, technology overtakes literature and human interaction, and people rely on their TV for entertainment and daily news.

E. Technology; Opening the Door to Millions of Possibilities In America, the endless innovation of both new and old technologies have driven the nation for centuries. How one views technology differs for many reasons. Lynn White articulates that the extent of a technology strongly depends on both society and the imaginations of its leaders.

Once society has already integrated it into its culture, the question becomes: did that technology end up harming us, or was its purpose and implementation beneficial?
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.
