As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate.
Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position.
As technology becomes more and more advance and prevalent, people become more and more reliant on technology. With more powerful computers and softwares, people do become a bit less capable of thinking of some aspects of a problem. However, this does not mean that the thinking ability of humans are detiorating nor will it any time soon.
The current form of technology which aids thinking is mainly software. We use softwares for multifarious purposes, such as text editing, making financial reports, calculating strength requirements for a car. However, these softwares do not obviate people who use them. Softwares alone cannot think, they can only aid. Almost all introductory programming lectures will always mention an acronym: GIGO. GIGO stands for "garbage in, garbage out". This proves that softwares alone cannot check whether the input data is reasonable, nor can it check the validity of the output.
Sure, we all use spell checkers, grammar checkers, calculators and other forms of technology, but we must realize that we still are the brains of what we do. Typing an essay with the aid of a spell checker and grammar checker improves performance of the writer. The writer no longer needs to worry about minutae and can now focus on bigger parts of integration. Scientists and engineers may rely on calculators or programs to
expedite calculation and prediction processes. But these two examples have one common aspect: humans always do the thinking and input their thought to the gadgets.
A more concrete example would be found in the financial industry. People working in the industry rely ever more on the technology that has been created. Internet and computers have helped people aggragate information so they no longer have to spend time and effort piecing out the tiny details. Now they can rely on data that is presented to them and make calls quicker than ever before. And in the field of finance, time is money.
Sentence: Internet and computers have helped people aggragate information so they no longer have to spend time and effort piecing out the tiny details.
