Does our society depend too much on technology?

Should a fully virtual (online) education program be considered for students in grades K-12?


I would like everyone's honest opinions. I am doing this for research so I would not be opposed to you saying if you are a student, parent, teacher, etc. I am not on either side but as a student I think virtual school would be fun if there are still hands on activities.

Is Google Drive better tha iCloud?


Google Drive is better than iCloud because in Google Drive, you can access your stuff from anywhere, whereas in iCloud, you have a huge risk of losing all of your stuff.

If he had stored his stuff in Google Drive, this would not have happened....

Social Media - A Good Thing or a Bad Thing?


Social Media - A Good Thing or a Bad Thing? Yes. The reason I think social media is good for kids is because it shows ways to express themselves, and is a good way for communication. Social media has made it possible for like minded individuals to discuss important topics, widen their personal knowledge and discover things they never knew before. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and others are a cost effective means of spreading the word and getting support. You might find your old pals...

We should no longer research or attempt to create an AI or Super intelligence


AIs have been researched for almost half a century now, and now making up roughly 10% of all computer sciences research, they're dominating the research field, and occupy just as many resources. Just recently a massive 636 Million USD, was donated towards the (American) National Science foundation for Computer Sciences. Of this, 56 million was used in research toward AI. In addition, Cambridge has given out two million dollars in an AI research grant, and Elon Musk, the billionaire entrepreneur...
