Transcript of What are the positive and negative effects of the microproceessors at people?

Effects of controlled devices in the home
What are they?
It is a silicon chip that contains a CPU. At the heart of all personal computers and most workstations sits a microprocessor. Microprocessors also control the logic of almost all digital devices, from clock radios to fuel-injection systems for automobiles.

The set of instructions that the microprocessor can execute:
Instruction set: The set of instructions that the microprocessor can execute.
Bandwidth : The number of bits processed in a single instruction.
Clock speed : Given in megahertz (MHz), the clock speed determines how many instructions per second the processor can execute.

What are they used in at home?
Microproccesors are pretty much used in every device you use every day:
Washing machines
Heating systems
Security systems
Electronical devices
Positive Effects on people:
Household work is done faster
Easier to do stuff
Simple and accessible
Time saving
Allows for people to focus on more important things

Negative Effects on people:
As a result people do less physical work
People become lazier
Less skilled
Less adapted to extreme situations
Can be hacked and used against you
Can be dangerous due to lag or if a problem occurs

In conclusion even though microprocessors made people lazier and more reliant on technology, it made our lives easier and allows us to work on what is actually important instead of doing some annoying work around the house.It has its pros and cons, but it is mostly positive, even though in long-term it can be quite negative.
