This is a common theme in the novels Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Both novels show a scenario where knowledge has crossed a line by being used in insensible ways, causing it to become a burden. To use knowledge in a wise way, we have to ask the question; “even though we can, should we?” When this question is given thought, knowledge can be used to benefit humanity. Writer D.T. Max shows this by portraying the story of Neil Harbisson, who could not see in color before he had a cybernetic implant.
The quote conveys how humans need technology to expand the humans senses. It is important to know when humans want to assure themselves if they are right, they use technology instead of there perception. This indicates how humans are not confident and unable to trust themselves with their own perspective. People see uncertainty as something bad and fears that society will look down upon them when they are wrong. Therefore people use technology and social media to assure their perspectives
Has technology changed us for the better or the worse when it comes to furthering the cause of the human imagination? People need to be and intelligent users when handling their technologies. As for me based on the title, I have a few opinion about it. Technology has affected people creativity because people keep on depending with technologies. First, computing has replaced creativity .Computers and technology make people feel lazy to think out of their thinking cap on how to solve problems.
This sentence strongly shows the idea of an author as well as it implies the fact that people internalize this piece of an invention as it were a part of their bodies. It seems highly logical to me as I digest the information that what the author stated has truly changed our lives since the clock first appeared in the Middle Ages. What the author does is expose the fact that was veiled by our ignorance. The ignorance that clock is just a piece of technology, and people should, in fact, control it and not being controlled by it. This part truly stuns me with what the author implies as a revelation of human’s ignorance on technology.
The role of sci-fi has long been to hold a high contrast image to society in order to expose the legion of flaws. Ours is to keep an ever watchful eye on scientific and social progress in conjunction with the works that depict it, as there may be both grand adventures and dire warnings hidden between the lines. A few ideas that could potentially help bring about the better: protection from outside forces should definitely be the most crucial priority, but there should be safeguards created to combat internal threats as well, both malicious singular entities and abuses on a more systemic scale. Of course this would slow down the people who truly want to pursue science in its purest form, but I fear that roadblocks to accessing the information are a necessary evil. The fact that humanity cannot achieve the perfect system is simply the result of human nature as it stands
Technology is good, but the abuse of it is as bad as hell and to be able to quote “been to hell and back” is not always the scenario. Technology, specifically computers, helps us in countless ways. But the abuse of it specifically on social connectivity slowly but rest assured will fulfill the physicist prophecy of how it can exceed humanity. Through computers, we can communicate, send signals, interpret message and establish relationship wire to wire. But at the same time, in that process, our dignity can be shattered, integrity reduced, curiosity awarded
The main cause of the most car accidents is the mobile either writing a message or calling someone. So you can realize how the mobiles are constituting a risk to the drivers. People still use it because they say that they like to keep in touch with other all the time and in some situation they need it. While Some people support the idea of
Things advantageous to human race I will try and mention some of the disadvantages and advantages of science fiction and relate them to these three texts. It can be good if we use it in a right way. It is useful for exploring the possibilities or technology that can benefit our society by designing cars, robots, long tunnels that run underneath the world, networks, communication. “It’s a gateway drug to reading. The drive to know what happens next, to want to turn a page, the need to keep going, even if it’s hard , because someone is in trouble and you want to know how it’s going to ends... that’s a very drive,” (Neil Gaiman, Page 1).
There are also some of critics that are asking questions like: could gamification actually undermine motivation and won't it trigger addiction? (bbc). There are pros and cons for the most, I agree with Danah Boyd who says that gamification is: “It’s a modern-day form of manipulation. And like all cognitive manipulation, it can help people and it can hurt people. And we will see both.”– danah boyd, researcher, Microsoft and Harvard’s Berkman Center
Therefore, the decline of interpersonal skills amongst generation Z due to digital communication makes sense. A generation which is accustomed to communicating through instant messaging is likely to develop poor communication skills over time. Therefore, managers should view the fact that, “newer generations of employees are more comfortable in sending emails and text messages instead of calling someone or communicating face-to-face” as a detrimental problem. In order to combat this, the article offers several different suggestions, some of which are stronger alternatives than others. I believe organizing different generations together within the workplace is the most effective and cost-efficient solution.
