Machine Roles In Future

     Whether we like it or not, machines will play an important part in the future.

They already play such a large role in our life, itís almost inevitable. Over
the past 20 years, the use of computers has skyrocketed. Now there is almost one
in every home. Children of this generation are being taught to use computers at
a very young age. Computers are used in most every office, also. Jobs that used
to be done by men can now be done by machines. Technology is growing each day.

Jobs are being replaced by machines, and there is more need for people familiar
with computers or technology. In a lot of cases as far as jobs etc go, itís
something you need to know or something that helps considerably. Technology is
becoming more advanced. As the technology changes, so do our lives in a small
way and it shall continue into the future. Technology has changed our lives for
both better and worse. It has made life so much easier. Now instead of baling
the hay themselves, farmers can put the hay into a machine that makes bales. It
is not only more efficient, but the outcome is much more desirable. Laborious
jobs have been reduced or eliminated. Though it has made life easier, it also
has promoted laziness. Instead of using our physical ability to accomplish a
job, so many can now be done by machine. Rather than walking to the store to
pick up margarine most would drive to the store. Little things that are so
easily accomplished by hand can now be done mechanically. Weíd rather have a
machine do the job, than exert the extra energy. This laziness has caused a
decrease in the over-all health of human kind. There are more cases of obesity.

The medical world has advanced, finding cures to many diseases, yet there are
more diseases each year. In some cases we donít really know what weíre
doing, which can be extremely dangerous. Good and bad have both resulted from
technology. Iíve been working on computers for about 10 years, and I love
them! I look forward to the advancements in computers. I was too young to
experience the beginning of computers, but I truly would have liked to see them
grow. It will be interesting to see what the future has in store for us. It
could very possibly be complete disaster. There is more work being done with
artificial intelligence and there is always the worry that a type of thinking
robot could be created which will wipe out humankind. The robots may start to
think of us as inferior and take over. We could also be the destruction of
ourselves. With technology, war is made so much easier. There would be more
death and destruction than ever if World War III broke out. With one push of a
button, the whole world could be annihilated! Now thatís scary stuff. The fate
of the world is in someoneís hand. Technology is both enlightening and
frightening at the same time. Itís hard to tell where exactly it will go, but
it will most definitely be a part of our future.
