“Industrialists touted automation as a way to improve working conditions and workers’ standard of living” (130). As seen from this quote, automation shaped the way we view labor. Not only did it provide a better alternative instead of using many people, but the use of machines reduced the number of accidents that may have occurred otherwise. Clearly, industrialists needed to look to “how to get the most out of machines rather than how to get the most out of people” (131). This was reduced because many of the more dangerous machines used in factory jobs were replaced with more modern and safer machinery.
Futuristic setting is shown in two main quotes. “As the society reminds us, there 's a difference between knowledge and technology. Knowledge doesn’t fail us.”(Condie 31). This quote shows us they have a lot more knowledge than we do right now. In modern day we rely heavily on technology, and the society is saying they have learned from our mistakes and learned knowledge is more powerful and useful than technology.
Lower classes of people would not be able to obtain jobs untroublesome, due to the level of education they obtain. Even if jobs are recycled and robots have countless of other benefits. There will still be a large number of people who will have trouble finding a new job after losing their previous one. However there are different solution to improve robotic replacement. In conclusion, there are more advantages to robotic replacement.
They also say that the machines are more advance and are able to show emotions and be a friend (112-13). This just lets us know that our world is changing and coming up with more advance technology. The reason they have robots as a replacement for kids is because the world is overcrowded, and they have to request permission to have a real kid; the people didn’t really have anything else to do but live their own private lives. Most of the people felt lonely and didn’t seem to be too happy. In the article “Closer to the machine?
They are creating new jobs, new and better jobs that may pay more they may even be a better fit for you. As said in “How Artificial Intelligence and Robots will Radically Transform The…”, article it proves my point even further for example it says “As has happened throughout history, of automation some jobs got destroyed but new and often better jobs were created”(Maney N.Pag). When old jobs have been taken over by the automated robots they always create new ones and they are even better, as the quote states because this has happened before and it worked out in the long run and you should always trust past experiences because they help you learn. Again in “How Artificial Intelligence and Robots will Radically Transform The…”, Maney is saying that once again automation creates new and better jobs he says this as, “In Michigan and Gilbarco veeder-root in north carolina hired software coders, engineers, sales staff and project managers.”(Maney N.Pag). This is also another history this gas company always used to have attendants that were helping you pump your gas and you wouldn't even have to leave your car but then they created the new automated machines were you had to do it yourself and as it says this helps us create new jobs because they need people to program and code the machines and people to help them.
As generation evolves, technology also progresses abundantly. Thoreau would say that technology is a great advantage to human kinds, however, it distance us from nature environment, it consumes too much time and money, and the machine is controlling our life. It is significantly important that we know how to use technology properly, or else it can be life debilitating rather than life enhancing.There is a negative advance to which he called modern improvements. For some people, it might be their high of the day for being able to ride cars, watch televisions, and travels. Although it may look as a marvelous invention at the time, it could possibly affect our ability to think, act and speak according to Thoreau.
In previous centuries, people’s need was limited, for their number was not as huge as modern world; the population growth of 20th century has been explosive as human number has been quadrupled. Modern world is better than previous eras in the world history because of changing in standard of life by having cheaper products, and getting better job opportunely. According to Churchill, public can get what they want with cheaper price and even with better qualities. Moreover the workers have better wages and greater security, and people can get jobs more easily than before because there are more manufactories. It is true that there are more jobs opportunely and better wages, but it is not same for the security.
Is technology changing our brains for the better or for the worse? The human brain is a biological masterpiece and is the most advanced organ on the face of the planet. In Richard Restak’s essay “Attention Deficit: The Brain Syndrome of Our Era,” he speaks about how the advancements in technology in this modern era have affected the brain’s habits and functions. Multitasking is requiring the brain to change how it functions, its organizations, and efficiency throughout day-to-day tasks and is also enabling people to do things otherwise not possible. Within the past two decades, the amount of time we spend on using technology has increased by a large amount.
New jobs will be created, existing roles will be redefined, and workers will have the opportunity to switch careers. The challenge, in particular to this generation, is managing the transition." Income inequality is likely to grow, possibly leading to political instability; and the individuals who need to retrain for new careers won 't be the young, but middle-aged professionals" (Vincent). Automaton is a blessing but a potential threat to our lives economically, it will be good for business owners and manufacturers but what about the commonwealth? This concerns me because I wonder how long it will take till all is affected, till life as we know it isn 't so humane, just technological.
The results of industrialism led to many positive, such as the many new advancements, and negative effects, including the hardships and burdens placed on the people, but the hardships the people gained outweighed the positive effects. Even though the Industrial Revolution had further advanced how they could use technology to their benefit, it was not worth it because of the pain it caused within the workers and the people who lost their work because of new factories. While factories created success for the capitalist and factory owners, it also created great trouble. Such a how the new spinning
