Impact of Technology on Society
Transcript of Impact of Technology on Society
Do you think Technology has a negative or a positive effect on our Society? Introduction Disadvantages The Impact of Technology on Society Advantages Machines are now taking up mundane jobs that were once done by human workers.
Computers can store, organize and manage huge amounts of data. They can process large amounts of information.
People have begun using the Internet to watch and download movies, listen to music, play games and entertain themselves.
Mobile phones have broadened the horizons of communication by enabling long-distance calling.
Satellite TV and satellite radio have enable us to broadcast events and watch television live.
We don't have to go out of the house to do food shopping because we can shop online. Technology has made our life unbelievably easy.
As computing technology and robotic mechanisms become increasingly advanced, fewer jobs are available due to the fact that machines can perform a task more efficiently at a quicker pace.
With spell check and automatic technology, simple knowledge and calculations are done for most people.
Because of the amount of time children spend watching television, views and behaviors are affected. Today, one of the most popular devices we use are smart phones and tablets. We have replaced regular phones and laptops with those. An example is the Iphone 5. Technology is becoming a big part in our everyday lives. It has definitely benefited society, although some say it has also caused many issues. It has definitely brought luxury in the life of every common man. Nicolas Hayek of Swatch watch fame, Smart Cars are designed to be small, fuel-efficient, environmentally responsible and easy to park—the ultimate in-city vehicle. Technology has had many effects on children, some effects are good, others not so good. Many children have became more violent because of their access to video games, which are not suitable for their age. Because of Technology people often cannot spell properly or write. This is because computers can do many things for us, people; such as spell check or other writing programs. Also some cannot read, since there are programs available, which can read things out for us. "It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity."
-Albert Einstein "One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man."
-Elbert Hubbard "The real problem is not whether machines think but whether men do."
-B. F. Skinner
