Relative to today’s society, Brave New World identifies the addiction to technology as a deceitful and bitter happiness. Huxley successfully predicted the outcome of technology because, like the society in Brave New World, the populace’s conformity of technology has resembled the declination of individualization. Beneficially warning the dangers of uncontrolled technology, the cautionary work of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World expounds the dehumanization of society through the addiction of media and stimulants as an escape. The novel Brave New World asserts that technology is a society functional necessity because the advances of technology have proven crucial. The society in Brave New World is heavily based upon technology as it is a factor of everyday living.

Technology in general has helped a lot of individuals and companies. However, the rapid improvement of Artificial Intelligence is negatively impacting our society as a whole. Artificial Intelligence is the field within computer science to explain some aspects of the human thinking. It includes aspects of intelligence to interact with the environment through sensory means and the ability to make decisions in unforeseen circumstances without human intervention. The beginnings of modern AI can be traced to classical philosophers' attempts to describe human thinking as a symbolic system.
Introducing Huxley to the twenty first century would bring on a reaction. Huxley would be able to see some similarities and differences in the twenty first century society and the society he created in his novel, Brave New World and would be disgusted by the similarities and delighted that there is some differences. The role that technology plays in present day society is somewhat similar to the society in the novel. For example, in the novel’s society they are constantly surrounded by technology, which is similar to today with television, social media, cell phones, and reality TV. This technology shapes the opinions of our society and is a large influence in how people make decisions.
This idea can be applied to things such as global corporation operation and global politics or even family communications. It is apparent with these situations, the opportunities for which tasks can be accomplished is quite literally endless. On the other hand, people are now performing tasks (whether they are multitasking or not) at much more quickly than they used to. This might be attributed to the increased pace of life brought on partially by technology. In the future if the brain completely adapts to this quick pace and improves its multitasking efficiency, it could enable people to accomplish tasks at a much faster pace than even today.
Nicholas Carr is “an American journalist and technology writer” who attended Dartmouth College and Harvard University. Over the past decade, Carr has examined and studied the different impacts that computers have on our life and the “social consequences” of this new technology (Carr 123). In “A Thing Like Me” by Nicholas Carr, the author claims that technology is overpowering and dominating our lives. Carr expands on this idea further by defining it as people using “tools that allow them to extend their abilities” (Carr 124). To help with his argument, Carr uses a historical narrative about the creation of computer software, named ELIZA.
All of student uses technology for searching information, storage data for backup, sending information and share knowledge with their friends through email or any communication network. The importance of information technology in education is to facilitate for those student want to explore new knowledge or get information to finish their task in classroom.

Weakness of this system is that too many links page to see the names of companies that have been provided.
