Are we too dependant on computers
People tend to rely more and more on computers than ever. Since the invention of computers till a visionary like steve jobs saw computers more than a console and more like a personal and also a super powerful gadget, no one would ever thought of this dependency like we are right now. Computers were the next revolution after the great industrial revolution. Today I look around I see computers in various forms almost everywhere. Computers are used everyday for everything but it doesn’t mean that we are too dependent on it.
Computers have made every other old gadget either vintage or obsolete. These days they are replacing a lot of humans. Many people argue about computers being reason of a depressed economy, and that is true indeed. But I guess it’s not bad. After a few years of this depressed period there would be a golden age, and yes that no fantasy. This has happened in the past during the industrial revolution and I’m pretty much sure it is going to happen again; and again perhaps we will witness another revolutionary invention.
These robotic artificial intelligent machines are everywhere . Even where man has not step foot yet,where Mars and other planetary bodies. Without the use of computers the space explorations wouldn’t have been possible. It’s readily availableness and affordability, it’s become part of our lifestyle, almost anyone on this planet who gets three meals a day and has a shelter can afford a cell phone a cheap and small computer, yet very powerful. When we landed on moon the rockets used a computer of processing power equivalent to today’s cheap cellphone. Computer program power is unimaginable. They are used to create all the things around that we can see. The design of every modern world home appliances, smartphones and other devices are designed by using computers. Yes we are much dependent on computers. I am not skeptical about that one day that computers will replicate themselves on their own. But that day we would smarter enough to not let them to destroy us.
