A future like Gattaca will be terrible to have for the reason that everybody and everything will be fake. It may even end up being that people will have similar genes. Biodiversity, the variety of life in the world or in a particular habitat or ecosystem, is what keeps us healthy and unique. If almost every person were to be “designed”, they would not be who they were meant to be and they would all be perfect. Try to imagine a world filled with humans acting like robots; the people will hardly differ from each
The robots can learn how to execute jobs and accomplish jobs better or faster. The two writings show the benefits and the dangers of technology. The technology will help everybody and let them work less. In the future, people can expect their jobs to be stolen away from them. Robots now can perform the same jobs faster.
In The Simpsons episode "A Test Before Trying", the students must get a high enough score to keep funding and prevent the school from shutting down. Unfortunately, Bart fails his exam which shuts the school down. Not only were the students forced to go to other schools, but the teachers and faculty did not have a job anymore. In an article titled "Relying on High-Stakes Standardized Tests to Evaluate Schools and Teachers: A Bad Idea" by Morgan Hani, she discusses how teachers are pressured by higher faculty to teach the test material only to keep funding (70). To ensure that teachers do this, teachers get either punished for poor scores or bonuses for good scores (Morgan 70).
Technology is a good thing, we are just using it in the wrong manner. Technology will eventually take over humans, unless we’re careful. Yes, it would be nice for robots to do chores, but they could end up doing everything for the world? Humans could just sit back and watch TV all day. But, what’s the point of life then?
One of the greatest accomplishments of the Apollo missions was the integrated circuit, which led to the microchip used today. Created to minimize the amount of mass launched into space, integrated circuits are used in almost all technology today (Gaudin). While there are a few monuments to commemorate the Apollo 11 mission or Neil Armstrong, none of them incorporate all of the important effects mentioned above, as this monument would. Not only would this monument educate the public on what the Moon landing meant for the United States, it would allow them to realize how much of today’s technology they gained from the space program, a realization much needed today when the government wants to end NASA’s
As a species we have always strived towards the next best thing and in the day of technology the next best thing is robots and AI’s. This level of technology can help us in a plethora of ways from day to day chores for government agencies and the military. But there are people that do not believe that this level of technology will help us for the better. Some wonder if we will be able to control these creations and whether or not they will be ok with the fact that they work for us and are interests. This effect of the double edged sword has been a constant issue that we as humans have had to face but in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein this issue affects Victor and the monster.
As a student in high school did you ever feel like the standardized test are helping you or making you get in to a better college? Have you ever thought about how many hours students and teachers spend preparing for the standardized test? Many hours and studying are being put into those test but are they really effective and are the test doing the students good in life? Standardized tests are really just to effective, teachers and students spend too much time on them and it’s not doing the students any good, and even it’s not doing the teachers any good. Standardized tests in schools today in Ohio should be stopped because they are causing for teachers to be evaluated by the test results of how the students do on the tests, they are having the students more stressed about school and do they benefit you in colleges and university and do they really look at how well students do on them test.
At the same time, robots can help families with their home chores such as when using it for vacuuming carpets. Moreover, robotics is one of the main reasons for the advancements of wireless connectivity, computational horsepower, artificial intelligence, sensors and power efficiency (Dyer, 2014, para. 5). In fact, without all of these advancements, our lives would be a lot harder than now. For example, imagine that there is no wireless connectivity where you live; you would need to consume a lot of time or maybe a couple of hours to send a simple message, while nowadays you can do that with a press of a button.
Yes lives were lost through space exploration but that was when space exploration was in its infancy. Space was an entirely new unexplored frontier back then, and because computers were also in its infancy, the only way to explore space was through manned missions. Thankfully today we can send robots to explore space which eliminates the need to risk lives through manned missions, but back then they didn't have that option. There's more technology on your average smartphone than there was to land a man on the moon. Of course NASA was going to trip before it could run, NASA was paving the way for safer more advanced generations in the
They think that space can help the economy improve and that there is more to space than stars and a bunch of planets. They also believe that they will find new resources to genetically modify our society. And they just might get their wishes if people start funding for space travel. Finding cures, new resources, and studying space are only a few reasons why space travel is necessary and why people should do more to fund the cause. Cancer and Mono still haven’t found a cure but, with the help of space travel, people can explore space and find other materials to find a cure for diseases.
