Remember How Short Life is

Remember How Short Life is

We’re so busy with our day-to-day lives that it’s easy to forget just how short life is. That’s why Here Is Today is such a great tool for those who need to take a step back to remember that what you’re doing today very well won’t matter a year from now and almost certainly won’t matter in a century from now.

The simple website starts by showing you the date as a small yellow square, but click again and you’ll see how short the day is compared to the whole month. Click again and see the day within the span of a year. Keep clicking and you’ll eventually see the length of today in relation to the whole millennium, this epoch, this eon, the history of earth, the history of reptiles and, eventually, the history of the universe.

    While you could take this as a negative reminder that nothing you do will ultimately matter in the grand scheme of things, it’s much better to realize how much freedom that gives you. Bunnies don’t live their lives worrying about how their actions will affect the universe on a grand scale, they hop and frolic through life.

    That’s the way you should take the revelations from this site -use the information to remind you to live life to its fullest and enjoy yourself because when you look at how short life is, the most important thing you can do is to live a good life.

      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.
