The Dream Of Artificial Intelligence Task 1

The Dream Of Artificial Intelligence Task 1.3
Kyla L. Cabauatan
A. Describe the varied technologies people use now.
Over the years, technology has revolutionized our world. Technology has created amazing tools and
resources, putting useful information at our fingertips. First, use of smart phones is introduced. Modern technology
has made it possible for the discovery of many multi-functional devices like the smartwatch and the
smartphone. Second, digital technology has also changed what people term as ‘media.’ The influence media is
apparent a news platform. Third, before the advent of mobile technology, you had to search through a dictionary to
understand the meaning of a word. Today, we tend to used less and less due to access to internet.
B. Do computer’s surpass man’s intelligence? Justify.
No. For me, Computers are certainly more adept at solving quandaries that benefit from their unique
skillset, but humans hold the edge on tasks that machines simply can’t perform. Humans are still superior
to computers in many ways. We perform tasks, make decisions, and solve problems based not just on
our intelligence but also on our beliefs, emotions, instincts, our common sense, and perhaps most
importantly, our life experiences. Computers can be programmed with vast libraries of information, but
they can’t experience life the way we do.
C. Identify the opportunities and challenges brought by computers
Computers are entertaining. The multimedia possibilities of modern computers are practically limitless.
Computers allow users to listen to music, play video games, browse the web, watch movies and keep up with their
friends all from the comfort of their homes. As computer technology continues to improve over time, more and
more possibilities are created daily. Computers are also useful when paired up with the learning process, whether
inside or outside of classrooms. Teachers use computers to aid presentations, giving pupils a more visual
educational experience. Students receive the benefit of learning software designed to teach new concepts in
entertaining methods in addition to access to the Internet for research assistance. Lastly, it is convenient. With a
computer in the house, gone are the days of writing school papers by hand and paying bills via the postal mail.
Computers add convenience to daily life, often turning a previously complicated task into a simple one. Users can
even do their work or get an education from a computer. On the other hand, Extensive long-term use of computers
may result in a variety of health issues affecting the entire body. Wrist and finger pain may occur in users who
spend years typing with improper mechanics. Other users develop lower back, spine or neck pain from poor
posture. Straining to see the screen in addition to exposure to the brightness of the computer monitor may cause
blurred vision, headaches and other issues for the eyes. With so many computers connected to the Internet, users
are at risk for a number of safety issues. Viruses, spyware and other forms of malware are a continual problem,
and these threats may destroy files or steal personal information. Computers also give predators a new medium to
take advantage of children in addition to creating a whole new class of cyber-crimes for criminals to commit.
D. How do you foresee the world years from now in terms of technology use?
The robots are coming. According to new research, almost two thirds (60%) of British people believe there
will be a robot in every home within the next 50 years and only a quarter of them can't imagine a life where a robot
wouldn't be part of their family. I can foresee that maybe 25 or 5o years from now, our world will advance in
technology for the future children that even our generation who lived in a modern world will hardly cope and
understand it. Right now, all modern technology is designed to bring the world to you; phone, radio, television,
internet, but if trends continue, robots will soon bring you to the world, everywhere, and at the speed of thought. A
mind and a hand where it's needed while you sit safely at home and run the show. It’s a future goal -- something
we know we can do if we can urge the market towards it, but it's one I like, and might even be able to do
something about. If it works, robots won't just change our lives in the future, they'll expand them. Not just for fun,
but for necessity. We've taken the first steps into welcoming them into our homes, we just have to wait a bit to
proctor them into making us more human. It’ll be good, I think.
