It’s been talked about and covered hundreds of times before, however, we’re tackling this data visualization to make sure you will get the best, and most importantly, complete keyboard shortcuts list.
We can give you many reasons why it is a big advantage to learn these shortcuts but one of them is to protect your hand, wrist, and fingers from using the mouse too much. Yes, a lot of people, including me, have complained about painful muscles and nerves on those portions of the hand. Most specifically the nerves and muscles of the joint between your wrist and your hand.
Here’s another: time and time again, we are reminded that time is gold. This is why one of the most viable reasons you can think of is you can save time using keyboard shortcuts. Especially if you can execute them by instinct. Meaning, you have done your homework by memorizing the keyboard shortcuts. That way, you know them by heart and this in turn will surely facilitate your work.
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.
