Greetings Mi Fans,
Welcome to yet another Tech Wednesday !
Today we see technology is all around, in our homes, in parks, malls, transport everywhere. But, is this expansion of technology making us actually smarter or we are becoming lazy too ? Let's discuss !
The smartphone in your hand enables you to record a video, edit it and send it around the world. With your phone, you can navigate in cities, buy a car, track your vital signs and accomplish thousands of other tasks. And so? Each of those activities used to demand learning specific skills and acquiring the necessary resources to do them.
For example: Making a film? First, get a movie camera and the supporting technologies (film, lights, editing equipment). Second, learn how to use them and hire a crew. Third, shoot the movie. Fourth, develop and edit the film. Fifth, make copies and distribute them.
Now all of those tasks are solved by technology. We need no longer learn the intricate details when the smartphone programmers have taken care of so much.
Life has become more complex but we hardly ever notice it because technology has made complexity simpler than ever. Individually, we depend more on our technologies than ever before (thanks to the Voice Assistants !!) – but we can do more than ever before. Collectively, technology has made us smarter, capable and more productive. What technology has not done is make us wiser. Historically, technology has made us individually dumber and individually smarter – and collectively smarter.

Technology has made us able to do more while understanding less about what we are doing, and has increased our dependence on others. Having said this, we also know that intelligence is not about how we store information. Intelligence is how about how we retrieve and use information to solve problems. So, is technology making us smarter? It all comes down to how we use it.
So, What Are Your Views On Technology ?
