Not all technology is essential to our lives but because this generation grew up with technology, it's hard to imagine no technology at all. Societal changes show the interconnectedness of the world and the pros and cons of it. Technology is growing at such fast pace that it starts to bring up the question: Will the Earth be taken over by robots one day?
Jobs are increasing in fields and departments yet there are many employees who are being replaced by machines which are able to carry out tasks much faster than an average human. This slowly creates a society which is reliant on technology and, in some cases, results in an increase of unemployed people. Dystopian Society? Thank You!
