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.
