Man-Computer Symbiosis 2.0

The other main aim is closely related. It is to bring computing machines effectively into processes of thinking that must go on in “real time,” time that moves too fast to permit using computers in conventional ways. Imagine trying, for example, to direct a battle with the aid of a computer on such a schedule as this. You formulate your problem today. Tomorrow you spend with a programmer. Next week the computer devotes 5 minutes to assembling your program and 47 seconds to calculating the answer to your problem. You get a sheet of paper 20 feet long, full of numbers that, instead of providing a final solution, only suggest a tactic that should be explored by simulation. Obviously, the battle would be over before the second step in its planning was begun. To think in interaction with a computer in the same way that you think with a colleague whose competence supplements your own will require much tighter coupling between man and machine than is suggested by the example and than is possible today.”


This paragraph alone depicts the elimination of slow paced technology in accordance to our fast paced lifestyles. Our society has developed a norm that enables everything from food, technology, and everyday lifestyles to be quick, easy, and efficient. Stated perfectly, this blog post explains that “the use of Artificial Intelligence can be seen in real life applications such as voice detection, face detection, human detection, retina detection etc. Artificial intelligence is becoming an essential part of human lives. Security systems are totally depending on artificial intelligence and its applications. From army to a common person, everyone is somehow linked with it.” We have become so disconnected to our natural rhythm of habits, that one can oftentimes be overwhelmed by the stress to succeed. In this blog post, in paragraph two, the author explains in great detail that although technology can be useful to cut down time, they are never able to fully diminish the work that humans must deal with. Fast food restaurants have become increasingly popular throughout the past decade, as well as the necessity of fast technology. Humans have become obsessed with doing things quickly, for example, we become easily frustrated when our Internet, email, and cell phones are running slow. We have almost become to dependent on technology, as stated in this blog.The development of fast paced lifestyles can be easily acquainted with the rise of the machine. The rise of technology has influenced our lives more greatly than we will ever know, and recognizing when our society could completely fall under the reigns of technology will be vital. As perfectly stated by my fellow classmate, this blog explains the caution that needs to be taken when dealing with artificial intelligence. But if we are careful, as stated in this blog post, “..we balance our relationship with technology, with the idea of living and experiencing life, (who is to say they should be separated; Maybe I’m wrong) we can avoid becoming cyborgs.”

  1. Our lives are totally depending on the technologies in this modern era. We have to bring balance between our lives and technologies because we are too much dependent on technologies and it is not good for humans because if there is no technology then we cannot do anything.

  2. I agree with you completely, we are depended on technology and that’s nothing something that we chose to do, but it was kind of a must in order to fit in with everything going on within society.
