Technology becomes an essential part of our lives today and few can imagine living without. We achieved a lot with the help of technology, for example we have the possibility to keep in touch with friends on the other side of the earth and cure many illnesses. It means more freedom and choices for people but at the same time we have to consider the social imbalance, weapons of mass destruction and natural resource depletion.
The use of technology started from Stone Age and cave men’s time. They were the first ones who discovered it by making weapons for hunting and saving themselves from wild beasts. Form that time many development has done by generations after generations. Now we are living in an era where we can’t do anything without technology. Our daily lives are fully dependent upon technology. Just think when you wake up by clock alarm in the morning it also a technology which is invented by us. Everything related nowadays with modern technology.
Evolution is the part of life cycle. Every day from the beginning of the world everything is start evolving. Its laws of nature, technology is also like that. Whenever humanity needs anything to make their life easy human invents. And every invention and technology had some good and bad effects. When the atom bomb was invited, that was not for destroying the city or for being used as warhead. But we did it for destroying each other for taking advantages of some technology. So if you think technology what is to blame for everything then you are totally wrong because if you used it in a bad way then it will be causing death and destruction. But if you want to use it in a good way then you will understand how easy our life becomes only for the technology. It’s up to us how we have to use it.
Main revolution of the technology happened when human invented the computer, a device which could calculate, analyze and do many things which takes more times if it done by people. This device could do it very easily. Computer came into existence when ARPANET was invented for military purpose in the year 1980. That was the backbone of our modern internet. We come a long way from that time. Now almost every person has a smart phone and a high speed internet connection. Today it becomes necessary things to our daily life. With the help of it we can do many things without going outside of our homes. Like banking, shopping, booking tickets, transfer money to anyone or talking to anyone via video chat etc. It is like the whole world is present in our fingertips. When you want access the internet you can do that from anywhere, you only need an internet connection.
It is known to us that everything has a good part and a bad part. This one is not an exceptional one. It has also some good and bad side.
Good side of this technology is you can do anything from anywhere. But now a day this technology is mainly used by people to achieve their own goals and many bad people use them for many bad purpose, like hacking and make viral fake news through social media and make chaos in our daily lives.
For that reason many person thinks that technology simply cursed our life. But they don’t realize how much easy our life to the help of technology. Before internet or computer if we have to send any message to anyone, it will take so much time. Sometimes that mail or letter was delivered to that person very late or there was no time left. However, now a day it is not like that. If you want to send mail or letter you just away for one click of your computer mouse or phone. You can also see or make contact via video call to anyone around the world. That was never possible if there is no development in technology.
Few years back when computer and internet were not invented, if we want to transfer money then you must have to go to bank withdraw money from there then you have to send it by going to that person or send it by other options like money order etc. It was too time consuming, but now a day you can easily send via internet banking, ATM, or any mobile app like BHIM, paytm etc. These are easy to use. Booking for train, flight or any other transportation you have to go there booking counter and wait in a long queue to book a ticket. However, with the help of technology you just book it from your home or office. Technology makes our life so easy if you think it properly. Without technology we are nothing.
Additionally we know, that decisions one individual takes are not necessarily good for the society as a whole.
I think it is important to bear in mind the mutual goal: to keep the planet with mankind and all its beautiful animals and plants alive. This implies to make technology as positive as possible for humanity and the environment in the long run. The technology we create now creates the future and it should be for the people and make things easier and not more complicated. So what kind of society will we be?
Technology shapes the future and it can help to make it compatible with nature. It can help us to develop clean energy, transport possibilities with less emissions and low-energy houses to save resources. Technology is not only about technology itself or more efficiency and discovering new methods and processes; we have to add the component of art which is about to make wise choices for the future of technology. We should not develop technology because of itself, but to develop it, because it adds value to society and simplifies human life. For this, it needs to be discussed with experts from many fields and we have to relate the technology to the organization and the culture in which it should operate. And remember: There are no side effects – they are part of the technology.
