Technology, the most trending topic to discuss, is present in every part of the world. With the advancement in the field of science, the magic of the technology can be seen, from the most uncomplicated to the marvelous products. One such progress that we cannot overlook in the field of technology is how our mobile phones have evolved; the difference in the shape and the like. Handling a phone in the late ’90s was seen as a dream just like the TV, which is another example of the evolution of technology. Cellphones were previously only used for calling, but video calls are a new trend now. The progression is called technology advancement.
Not only our mobile, many other things have improved over time, helping people to connect faster. Horses were replaced with vehicles due to the improvement in the automobile industry, and hand handled machines were replaced by the electric motor. In today’s time, no one can live without technology. Right from the time we wake up from our bed, we are surrounded by technology. Technology, without a doubt, has been the most beneficial gift humans got from science.
But, it is said to have some drawbacks too. Due to the increasing dependence and usage of technology, it is now assumed that there will be a day when all work and jobs will be accomplished with the help of AI-powered machines and robots, leaving people unemployed. With the invention of the AI-powered programs, all work done by humans is now done by machines. These inventions are useful for the world, but at the same time, they create unemployment.
Due to the progress made in various fields of technology, letters and emails sent by the banks or any other organization are now preferred over electronic over a physical courier. For instance, the swapping of sending messages over electronic mail has provided the sender and receiver with the convenience to send and receive without stepping out of the house and without any cost. Such things are beneficial for us, but the unemployment faced by such a courier company remains unknown to us.
Another optimal example is how a hotel in China shifted to robots as waiters. Technology will always retain the best friend of the human being, as its application is secured and easy to use, which results in optimal utilization of money as well as resource. Big companies are using modern technology to create their product in no time, along with less cost and efficiency. This does not mean that machines will replace us in the nearer future, but we should not take anything for granted as we progress ahead.
Although even for the smooth running of a machine, a team of people is required to operate it, machines can’t work on their own. Technology, for sure, will progress ahead, but it cannot perform the same tasks as a human being does. Technology is useful only when it gets the hand and mixture of both AI and human.
