Technology, as you know, is now the driving force of the world. Everyone is advancing towards an era of technology at a rapid pace. Honestly, this has its own set of pros as well as cons. On one hand, technology is making work easier, faster, better and more accurate. However, on the other hand, technology is literally snatching away job opportunities. The classic example to site this is the fact that fact that before to coming in and wide scale use of computers, there was a huge demand for manual labor and worker. That generated employment and helped people as well as the society to earn and increase their standard of living. But is it so still? No, not at all! Nowadays, machines are being invested for every little thing and though this may go to show how advanced the human intelligence is to create such devices, it is actually terrible for the human race and survival a whole. In fact, what started out with the aim of making lives easier and work way faster, is now making people lazier that ever before. And it’s not even funny or surprising anymore. On the contrary, it is devastating.
You may have heard about battery driver cars which will not need drivers. This is again a huge loss to livelihood. In fact, Japan and other nations which has excelled in technological developments have now come up with their own robots to carry out even the little and daily menial tasks such as cooking or serving. There are inventions such as machines to fold dried clothes off the clothing line and also to help you reach things that lie at a distance without moving. It may all sound too fancy to you at the beginning, but do you think that it’s actually good for you? If you do, then you must rethink and reconsider before it gets too late.
The best movie to understand how terrible technology can be in the long run is the animated movie Wall-E. though you may think that what can a children’s movie show you or teach the world, you must watch it before reaching this hasty and stereotypical conclusion. The fact that even oxygen tanks will need to be purchased for daily life is itself a shocking thought. It’s crazy!
If this was not enough, artificial intelligence has now reached such a level of advancement that they interact amongst themselves and create items. Have you not watched those science fiction movies where the inventions later come to kill the inventors and the creators who gave them life at the first place? That may actually come true any of these days. In fact, top scientists of the world are also of a similar opinion as this. Forget about generating employment, technology is bound to even eat up those that already exist. This is a huge menace in the developing countries of the world such as India which is faced with the eternal problem of ever increasing population and growing unemployment consequently
