ADVANTAGES OF MODERN TECHNOLOGY:  ACCESS: information and communication has vastly increased, technology has changed and continues to transform the educational experience of students living in rural and remote areas. COMMUNICATION: it has increased the reliability of sending messages to others, made it easier to meet new people and keep in touch with friends. The accessibility of technology means that users do not need to be in any special location like a post office or mail room to send a message. LEISURE: (free time) technology can contribute to the enrichment of human life and flowering of creativity. Laborsaving devices free people to do what machines cannot do. HOUSING AND LIFESTYLE: technology allows homeowners to run their home while away through a remote, often on a smartphone, thanks in particular to the advanced technological solutions such as automated door locks, security cameras and lighting control, people’s homes are now more secure than ever. DISADVANTAGES OF MODERN TECHNOLOGY: LONELINESS: despite being more connected then before, more people feel more alone than ever. Since users have built expansive social networks online, the depth of their networks offline has decreased. WORKER DISPLACEMENT: lob losses due to automation, artificial intelligence and improvement in technology is a growing tendency seen across the world. Consequently, robots are doing most of the jobs which used to be done by humans; middle-skilled employees, such as bookkeepers, clerks and assembly-line workers, have already been replaced by robots in countries such as Japan, Germany and US. TECHNOTRASH: is processed by poor workers in rural towns in place like China and India. Informal recycling operations in some towns do not have the resources to safely recycle tech materials.

 They expose workers and their communities to shocking levels of toxic materials, turning towns into contaminated dumps. PRIVACY: the amount of control over personal information has been reduced and open up the possibility of a range of negative consequences as a result of access to person data. People now carry with them devices that give them access to all the world’s information, but these gadgets can also offer almost all the world vast quantities of information about their users. The technical capabilities to collect, store and search large quantities of data concerning telephone conversations, internet searches and electronic payment are now in place and are routinely used by government agencies. TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS Reversing paralysis: Scientists are making remarkable progress at using brain implants to restore the freedom of movement that spinal cord injuries take away. Agricultural drones: relatively cheap drones with advanced sensors and imaging capabilities are giving farmers new ways to increase yields and reduce crop damage. Agile robots: computer scientists have created machines that have the balance and agility to walk and run across rough and uneven terrain, making them far more useful in navigating human environments. Deep learning: with massive amounts of computational power, machines can now recognize objects and translate speech in real time. Artificial intelligence is finally getting smart.Smart wind and solar power: one barrier to mainstream use of renewables is integrating sustainable energy sources into the current power grid. Big data and artificial intelligence have made it easier to predict how much power wind turbines will produce. Anticipating power fluctuations is key to developing technologies for integrating wind and solar into the power grid.
