Advantages and Disadvantages of Advanced Technology

About the advantages and disadvantages of technology. I mention in the piece that even though there are both advantages and disadvantages of advanced technology, I wish a more developed world, with great technologies.

Today, we can’t imagine ourselves without technological advances such as cars, microwaves, cell phones, computers, and televisions. However, technology won’t stop here, but develop further. As technology develops, there are not only advantages, but disadvantages from them. A few advantages of upgraded technology are that one can save time and money and life will be made easier as a result of not having to do all the hard labor. In contrast, the disadvantages of upgraded technology are that people will loose their jobs to machines that will do the work for them. In addition, machines and robots are too complex for most people to use.

I personally would want a developed world with advanced technologies. The following are the reasons why I do want a more advanced world with advanced technologies. My major reason is because when you have advanced technologies, life is much easier as robots and machines would take over your daily life chores. For example, daily life chores might be serving your breakfast, cutting your lawn, or cleaning your room. With robots and machines doing one’s chores one has time to relax. Another reason is because unlike humans, robots and machines do not make mistakes when programmed correctly. They always accomplish tasks perfectly so you won’t have to worry about making a mistake and getting trouble.

Other reasons why I want advanced technologies are because they save a great deal of time and money. For example, if you are a wealthy man who always had trouble employing talented maids, you can buy a cleaning robot and use it for the rest of your life. Therefore, you won’t have to use all your time employing talented maids. Also, you will save a lot of money from not having to pay servants. Another example of benefits from advanced technology is that if there are new, developed vehicles that will transport people to anywhere rapidly, so that one would not need to spend all those boring, long hours in an airplane to try to get to another country, which will save much time not only on long travels but also on daily commutes.

As there are so many advantages from highly developed technology, there also is a great deal of disadvantages from them. One disadvantage is that as technology develops, robots and machines will take over many jobs and people will loose their jobs by contrast. As people loose their jobs, they will have hard time getting money which would make it hard for them to continue to meet living expenses. Moreover, as people use less money the economy would be difficult to control and especially if it is a country as large as the United States, the problem will influence the world greatly.

Another disadvantage of highly developed technology is that machines and robots are complex. It is hard to activate all the machines you have unless you can multitask. Think about it, if most people have trouble on computers and almost all of us don’t know the actual limit of computers’ abilities, how will us, normal people, work with all the robots and machines? Moreover, just like computers, robots and machines will easily break and most time you won’t know how to fix them and one will have to call someone to fix them. People will loose their temper over this and it will create a large expense to repair them.

Even as there are as many advantages ad disadvantages of technology, I personally wish a more advanced world with great technologies. It would be so cool to work out all the complicated machines and robots. Don’t you think it will be awesome to press just a few complicated buttons than do the labor yourself? In the future it would be more about using your brain and being intelligent than doing the hard labor yourself. I hope these days come within my lifetime.

    technology is a queer thing.it brings you great gifts with one hand,and and it stabs you in the back with the other.

    you are one lazy human!… really!…. you want roborts and machines to control the world… it will cause a major destruction to the human body… and yeah.. if roborts and machines are to do the work in the world.. there wont be anyone to create technology anymore who is there to create technology in the future??.. ( it is my opinion… and i have the right to express my opinion)

    I came across your little debate while researching technology and thought to post my opinion. I think that technology is great and has helped society but now enough is enough, we dont need anymore of it. Technology now has come to the point of being pointless, it’s proven that tech has had a huge impact on wieght gain and laziness. It’s great and fun but no more.

    I appreciated about your above mentioned details, as far as my opinion concerned I use to preferred working without using much technology, why because if we become habituated with the machines then think if machine’s gone in the future how we will be? So my opinion is to depend on our god gifted brain and all Organ’s of a human body instead of robots and machines.

    this is an argumentative and persuasive essay so indeed it has to be subjective and in persuasive essays one expresses one\’s own point of view so there is no problem as long as there are exmaples that proves one\’s own poin of views….. good job although no one will have the consensus about anything……

    I do believe that As the dominant species on earth we are well capable to do things with the use of brain and the physical body, but in some applications technological advancements are important. Without it certain task that are carried out on a daily base which helps us in a major way will be impossible. So in my opinion i think there should be a balance between the both; Physical and Technological Applications.

    well.. i guess some commentors are basically right..
    i’L go for its disadvantages since as we could see the world now is divastated and technology products such as weapons are the major factors af mass distruction. I think the worst creation of technology is money!! everyone is aftering for it whether they can do unnecessary thing, will do.. just to get for MONEY themselves. hussshh!!! i can think it over.. after 10 years from now? or should i say 5 years? what world can we have with the presence of technology? wat other things could technology create to destroy our living, faith, work, education, privacy and even the whole world..????

    do the technology really helped us? compare the advantages and disadvantages… wat cums for lease?

    i think that noone can stop the progress of science and technology because people naturally thrive to constantly discover and invent…and this change everyone is afraid of will eventually become reality all we have to do is to adapt to it like we’ve done millions of times before…as for the essay,it was pretty good but you have to take a global point of view and then move to a specific case which is that of the robots…

    ——————————————————————————————– Your obviously uneducated if u think that we do not need to keep advancing technology. What about sustainable energy? What about an electronic car that can drive themselves and substantially reduce accidents and petroleum consumption so we can break away for the bloodsucking oil companies? How about advancements in technology that help cure the sick? Are u saying that we should stop advancing technology in respects to healthcare as well? If so then you are a lot more dumb then I intially thought.

    Technology is great to an extent.
    I\’m a 21st century youth, surrounded by and enticed by all kinds of technology, phones, social networking, tv etc etc yet I can clearly see that technology is becoming and HAS become the fall of human value. It\’s creating a utopian reality that we\’d much rather live. E.g.

    Humans = flawed but talented
    Robots = infallible

    Western social reality = discrimination and prejudice
    Internet = anonymous and thus, creation of a new identity

    Natural human beauty
    Photoshop

    Talking with friends in front of your face
    Facebooking

    Escapism from a flawed world? Maybe. Technology is fantastic in the ways of performance efficiency and all sorts of things – travel, connectivity, security and more, but also part of it is causing the lack of value for life itself.

    Can we remember that humans created technology? Therefore technology is not superior to human ability.

    This essay too personal. you center only on robots and machines as if those were the only products of science and technology. the part of rapid vehicles so one wouldn\’t have to spend long boring hours travelling to other countries in airplanes is very wrong. airplane is one of the fastest means of transportation, it is certainly faster than any vehicle and airplanes can travel to so many countries that normal vehicles wouldn\’t especially across the atlantic.

    Ok. The robot thing I can understand your 2035 future view. I mean we have robots assisting in surgeries today. However keep in mind that an object of that sort is only as intelligent as its creator. Technology advancement goes as far back as the cotton gin or better yet just dumb it down the creation of simple machines to do work. Our culture has reach peak of advancement and is starting to decline the need of human interaction. Calculators allowed us to forget simple math, the Internet is replacing libraries and sound critical thinking skills. I mean technology has come to the idea a putting nano bytes into humans to replenish cell growth but if someone is in control and flops the switch we can all drop dead. Turns into a semi bio warfare. Be careful wishing for higher technology because your going to lose your intelligence with it. Artificial intelligence deteriorates human intellect.

    Mature people don’t think about “robots” doing tasks for us, and i doubt you would trust a “robotic device” to cut your lawn…. and “getting trouble”? Very childish. Did you write this for english class?

    At first,all the person who are commenting as a guest from different places to your essays are successful due to our advance technology and they can thought about the advantage and disadvantage of it due to their own natural brain that’s why human beings and our advance technology are inter-related with each other.So,in my view for the development of both humans and our technology,we should be aware that life should not be totally depend on our technologies as well as life should not be totally busy and stressful by doing all works of world by ourselves.As we are the intelligent animals,we have to think about our healthy health not only pleasure and prosperous life from such advance technologies as our health is very important among the other things in the world yet.That’s why i can’t ignore your thoughts or essays directly and the other thing that i want to say is the person who ignored your thoughts are forgetting that they are using our advance technology,computer and laptop to send their views to you!
    At last, i want to say you that before making any technology we have to see the positive impact in both humans healthy body and luxurious life because we want both as you can see your comments from your commenting guest.Hope you can understand my thoughts!!!
