Your technology could end you!

Technology is advancing very fast and in the last 50 years alone, computers have become a trillion times faster. Should we be worried about how fast technology is advancing? As technology is advancing humans are becoming more and more dependant upon it and less dependant on an education to get them through life. This leads us to rely less and less upon our brains which is very alarming.

We are also losing many jobs to technology, and some are predicting we will lose 800 million jobs by 2030. There is really no job a robot couldn’t do. They could do anything and probably better than an actual person. In some cases when new technology comes it creates more jobs but not enough to replace the jobs lost.

Artificial Intelligence is the main reason to be worried about technology. As of now, companies are racing to see who can make the best AI, which is making it grow at a rapid rate mainly because of competition. When we give AI the ability to learn as it works, that is what makes it extremely dangerous. When AI learns that it could kill people, it probably would because AI has no feelings. If all the AI in the world would band together, humans could almost become irrelevant. We need to act now and carefully watch AI make sure that would never happen. Another interesting point is that we use AI every day in the form of Google or Siri.

As of now, the world is racing to produce something that connects our brains to our smart devices so people can get the seamlessness that they want. Elon Musk has already produced a brain chip call the neural link, so people with brain diseases can start communication once again. They have already tested this with rats, so when they can just connect the rat’s brain to a computer and see all the data. This would be a crazy invention in that when we wanted some knowledge, we could just download the data.

We could essentially speak in every language because it would auto-translate in our brain. Also, there would be downsides like one country hacking into everyone’s brain of that country to attack them, which could be extremely dangerous.

I don’t think we should be worried about where technology is now, but we should be worried about where it is going? Will they be able to achieve what they are trying to do? We will never know, but it is a subject that everyone should be worried about.
