Technology has advanced in the year 2017 bringing further innovation in all fields be it medical, mathematics or computer science.
The quote that best describes these advancements is by
“What new technology does is create new opportunities to do a job that customers want done.”
Failure in the past should never discourage one. That failure has allowed experts and researchers to work on self-driving cars, face-ID, 360-degree selfie etc.
“Let’s go invent tomorrow instead of worrying about what happened yesterday.”
The sad truth about advancement in technology is that we depend so much upon it is that we are getting completely lazy. 2017 again talks about the laziness of humans from depending on robots to working just on Artificial Intelligence.
“All of the biggest technological inventions created by man – the airplane, the automobile, the computer – says little about his intelligence, but speaks volumes about his laziness.”
2017 witnessed a cold war between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, debating about the future of Artifical Intelligence and how it will ultimately affect humankind.
R. Buckminster Fuller
“Humanity is acquiring all the right technology for all the wrong reasons.”
This is how we can summarize technology, for any age, anytime and any year.
“If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner.”
