Is technology becoming too 'intelligent'?
I was just wondering what your opinions were on 'intelligent' technology. Obviously I'm not talking about sentience here, but rather just about things such as smart phones and, well, I'm sure you could name a lot more but I won't here. I just sent an e-mail to my Dad and because I included the word 'attachments' but actually hadn't attached any documents, Hotmail stopped me before I sent it and asked whether I'd meant to attach something. I can't decide whether that's good and helpful, or whether it's a bit weird for a machine to question a person about their actions?
I suppose I like the idea of technology becoming more intelligent. after all, it's supposed to make your life easier. But I think the example you gave highlights an important problem; technology that's *almost* intelligent is more of a hindrance than a help. You know, where someone has been just a bit too clever and asked more of the tech than it can deliver... *cough* Siri *cough*. The point being: if it's not perfect, I'd prefer tech that's "dumb", as it were.
It certainly is!
There'll come a day when,if we came back, we would not recognize ourselves as human.
It's wonderful what technology can do.However we are going too fast. I know there are some who say not fast enough,for instance,those people who have a crippling
disease. So while I think we are going too fast,I am grateful I don't have to decide what slows down and what leaps ahead.
Technology is becomming very smart. I think that we need technology to keep on advancing because it will help productivity, improve communication, and collaboration. Especially with mobile technology. Great question.
