MAKING IT IN THIS NEW WORLD: NAVIGATING A WORLD WHERE TECH IS TAKING OVER

Blue Screen of Death in Silver Black Laptop

“Where do I work?”


our new world

In this America we are currently living in, we are rapidly being inundated with the constant barrage of tech influence. No matter if it’s cameras everywhere capturing everyday activity, or machines replacing people. We all have to admit that manpower is something of the past. Eventually the world will get a point and stop growing, then there has to be some form of population decline. There will be eventually too many people and not enough resources. We always think of the government forcing people into a position. But people will start to make their own personal decision to not have children because of cost. And with jobs going more in more digital in developed countries, where do that leave us because we are changing quicker than developing countries.

how do we cope

Watching what is transpiring in front of us with regards to technology, what are we to do. Because now that we are seeing all the opportunities, we are not going back. How do you convince a generation of the combine to go back to mule pulling. Yes, we would love to believe the president of the United States stating that it’s illegal immigration. But in reality, tech spaces are moving people out of the job market. So in an effort to try to cope with the changing times, some people try to learn as much as possible to get in the game. Others will complain, but it does no good because what is meant to be will be.

next generation us

As far as the generation that will proceed my age group, I wonder will they ever get to the point where they are saying the same thing we are saying today about jobs and technology. And the answer is yes, there will always be a generation that cannot connect to what is going on in the world at the moment. You just look at the way the world is going and disconnect. What it does is makes life harder on you. So to avoid being left behind you have to always innovate.

HEALTH DETECTIONS: HOW A CHIP IN THE BODY COULD CHANGE MEDICAL HISTORY

Central Processing Unit

“Tracking your health.”


digital doctors

Understanding your health is crucial in being able to live a long health life. But as time progress, what will the standards for tracking health become? Will we start to see microchips implanted into the body that will be able to track with 99% accuracy a health problem is on its way before we get the sickness? Because think about it, a chip placed in the brain, which is the central nervous system of the body, so that it can detect cancer in its very beginning stages. This would mean that the disease wouldn’t stand a chance of growing, must less spreading throughout the body. And thus allowing people to live longer disease free until they pass away.

cost

As with any clinical trial, the cost associated with this type of development would be staggering. The initial cost would have to be raised by through public, but more so the private sector. And this sector could most likely be from already wealth individuals who have the ability to give $100 million, $500 million, or even $1 billion for research. Only downside for society is that these are the people who would be the beneficiaries first. But with them putting up so much wealth, why not. But with anything else in our society, the initial cost are always high before it plateaus and comes affordable for everyone.

socially responsible 

In developing something so ground breaking, we have to make sure that we are holding ourselves to a certain level of decor in dealing. Because having such information about another human being can be an upside when treating them. But the information about patients can also be used to the benefit of the doctor and/or hospital. Because with hundreds of patients, or even thousands of visits in a year at a hospital, medical reps looking to sell products could make a killing if they have information about a hospital and their job is to sell products and services. It now becomes a race for more and more information about another human being. So morals and ethics will come in to play eventually.

externalities

The good over the long haul could easily outweigh the bad. Because imagine what this will do for the productivity of society. People living longer because they don’t have diseases. We could work for longer periods of our lives and retire much much later on. And it could contribute to the overall growth of of our existence.

UPLOADING MEMORIES: WILL THERE BE A WAY TO REPLICATE PEOPLE’S EXISTENCE

Green Ram Card Collection

“Uploading Memory.”


saved data

A day will come where all of our memories will be able to be accessed and used to keep an aspect of us going throughout society. Meaning a Stephen Hawking brain could really benefit the world after he is dead with holding on to his intellect. That would mean technology to scale from the likes our planet has never seen. Accessing all the data of the mind of some of our smartest so that we can have an advantage as a nation. And with so much brain power, what could a nation do with such information for its infrastructure?

opportunities

A Henry Ford comes along and is born into this country. Or better yet a Steve Jobs is born and we want his mind to continue. Imagine if we could have kept everything that Jobs did and managed to keep Apple going the same as if he had never left. You’re talking technology rolling out year after year from the vault of Jobs. And since we have everything he wrote down, we could compile this information to build his ideas the same way he would have built them. The uncertainty of where a company is heading after someone as important as him dies wouldn’t be lingering over the heads of the organization’s leaders. But is there a more sinister aspect of the technology?

sick twisted system

Manipulation is the main reason why something like this will be halted for a very long time. You would need a large scale oversight into the matter because not everyone is born equal. Some people just have that thing others don’t. So can you imagine a mundane thinker accessing the data of a genius and building their own futures off the backs of someone else. Or better yet, our government laying claim to the mind of this person for their own benefit. That means your family member that died is now property of the government to be used however they please. And who is to also say that someone won’t try to kill you for your mind. Because you are now worth more dead than alive.

reality is reality

This will be something of the future, but in a different context. I don’t know hat the context will be, but the information of people will be left behind because we document so much today. And it will be for more research purposes if anything.

TOXIC TECHNOLOGY: WHEN ITS USE IS NOT THE INTENTIONS OF THE CREATOR

Two Men Holding Red and Gray Crt Tvs in Front of Faces

“Not the intended use.”


technological reasons

We don’t realize it, but there were alternate uses for some of the technology we have in today’s society. Like the television was supposed to be created as an educational tool for learning. Yet today we are constantly inundated with mass media. So what causes an invention such as the television to go from its original use to what it is today? And the answer would have to be generating revenues. Once people attach themselves to something it starts to grow and become bigger than its intention and inventor. Amazon was supposed to be only a online book store created by Jeff Bezos. But now Amazon is an organization where you can purchase almost any item you desire sold by some small vendors. Not to mention they now own Whole Foods grocery store.

who decides

What is the decision making for what this new tool will become? And the reality is not the person that created it. Because once people in a different position realize how they can exploit the situation they do. Oppenheimer and his message to the president of the United States in the past when he said, “Mr. President, I think I have blood on my hands,” after the atomic bomb drop. Or how Nobel created dynamite, and aimed at fixing his effects by creating the Nobel Prize competition. Only problem is that atomic bombs have become bigger and the average Joe now has their hands on dynamite. This is when the problem is crazy once it is out of the hands of the creator and into the hands of the optimist.

can we go back

Is there a way to fix what has happened once the damage is done? And sadly enough there is no way because what has become of the creation is so far gone. There is no way to bring the television back to when it was a tool for learning. Why, well there are just too many viewpoints that have shaped our minds about television. Also the internet has made television seem outdated and antiquated. So what you do is move forward the best way possible. And hopefully the future will look a lot more bright than the bleakness of our present state.
