I think that technology is quickly getting smarter and
humans are definitely getting stupider.
It’s unbelievable. If you were to
walk the streets of America and randomly ask people questions about current
events or the names of members of the government, I think that most people
would get all of the answers wrong.
Within the query, we have the answer. Yes, technology is making us dumber, by removing the penalties for not being smart. Can't do ____? No problem, here's an application or device to do it for you. Technology has become so capable in doing so many things that if we can't learn how to do them on our own it's not a big deal.
As ironic as it might seem,technology is actually getting smarter and humans are getting stupider.Humans are developing machines that can out think them so they are becoming dependent on them and many times don't worry about the intellectual work involved until the technology no longer works and they have to do it on their own.
Yes, too many people can't do simple tasks and rely on technology to do it for them. Look at the modern teens: how many of them can't add simple numbers in their head? How many can't read and write well? I'd say too many, because they are used to texting instead, and because all math is done with a calculator.
No, technology is not getting smarter and humans getting stupider, because humans have always been pretty dumb. Until now, we just didn't have a way of memorializing it in social network posts. But now, it is becoming painfully obvious how dumb we have always been. But this is nothing new. Technology still makes our lives better.
Although technology is getting more advanced every day, machines will never have true intelligence. Also, humans are not getting stupider. We can use technology to augment our intelligence for our advantage. In the future, computers will help us to communicate and to learn better. Technology is generally a benefit to humanity.
No, technology is getting more advanced but humans who want to use the technology are keeping up rather nicely and humans are the ones developing the "smart" technology. What's getting more stupid than a rock is people's ability to listen and identify what someone is saying as illogical. That's why politicians can get away with the most outlandish statments and everyone nods their head and says what a wise person the nonsense speaker is.
