TECHNOLOGY: DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES
What is your vision about technology in the future? Here are two opposite scenarios depicted in literature and movies.
Optimistic authors see humanity solving all problems through technology: intelligent devices have actually melted into nature, becoming invisible and granted as a human right. Self-conscious intelligent robots are peacefully coexisting with humans: sometimes they can also have equality in rights, though usually they reveres and serve mankind.
Dystopian authors tell us about robots ravaging our lives, enslaving humankind. We become entirely dependent upon technology, even to accomplish the simplest tasks. Alternatively, humanity is destroyed by a virus or a genetically modification.
What about you? Do you feel optimistic or pessimistic about the future of technology?
