50 things you don’t need to do anymore — Thanks to New Technology!

50 things you don’t need to do anymore — Thanks to New Technology!

I just love this generation. We can chat with each other using smart phones and our computers on live video. We can travel at the speed of sound. We can choose to work right in the comforts of our own living rooms; and, work for clients from across the globe.

Because of technological advances brewing under our noses, (heck, we can’t even cope up with the latest tech trends), we don’t need to do a lot of things we can’t do away in the past.

What are those, you may ask. Here are some: We don’t need to own a set of encyclopedia now, no need to buy newspapers, we don’t need to visit a bank to have transactions, and we don’t have to develop and send off film for photographs.

There are so many activities we don’t need to do now; because there are tech products making those activities obsolete. I smile everytime I reminisce about the past, watching James Bond movies. The most memorable scenes I have are the ones which feature tech advances, not even possible during the time, like talking with someone using a wristwatch.

Just recently, Samsung introduced to the world a device resembling a wristwatch called the Galaxy Gear. It can handle e-mails, surf the Web and make phone calls. See? We don’t need to carry phones on our bags or keep on holding them anymore, we just wear them on our wrists. Now, how cool is that?

    Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

    Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

    Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

    Does technology have all the answers?

    This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

    Creating technological solutions transparently

    This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

    Technology as the connecting tool

    Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

    “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
