(subject: We are becoming increasingly dependent on computers. They are used in business, hospitals, crime detection and even to fly planes. What things will they be used in the future? Is this dependence on computers a good thing or should we be more suspicious of their benefits?)
Since the invention of commuters in 1970’s, they have become more and more useful and playing a larger and larger role in our lives. Specifically, without help of computers, it was impossible to attain the progresses that human has made in science and technology. However, becoming overdepedent to computers can reduce the quality of life for several reasons.
Most importantly, being overrelied on computers as workforce in businesses can lead to unemployment and reducing the job opportunities, which is the case in some businesses in Us nowadays. Today, data scientists are working hard to train computers to work as flexible as human and replace them as a more reliable and cheaper workforce options, comparing to human. For example, nowadays, it is quite common to talk to a computer as a company’s customer service operator, which is trying to find and solve our problem over the phone.
This replacement of human with computers in businesses not only eliminate many job opportunities and reduce the bargaining power of human workforce and therefore leads to lower wages for the remaining job opportunities, but also reduces the human interactions and communication among coworkers and among workers and customers, which definitely reduces the quality of life and can be scary to some extent.
Therefore, to benefit from advantages the of computers a, while to not become overdependent on them, the governments in developed countries should be very careful to legislate appropriate laws that limit the implication of computers to only those areas in our lives that human being is unable to work.
