Computer science also can cover interesting topics such as robotics, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, and multimedia – things that interest me. I used to teach computer since high school so I would like to increase my knowledge about computers in such way that I can impart to others this knowledge at the same time, I can develop my own interests on computers. Computer Science has been an interesting degree to me since it involves a lot of programming. When I master programming, I get to be interested with broader systems of software. The field of computer science can explore a wide range of means of solving world problems.
Carr chose to focus on the effect that the internet itself has on learners and professionals, while Turkle elected to identify the way our minds adapt to the ways that computers teach us information. Turkle’s essay, titled “How Computers Change the Way We Think”, she focuses on the idea that technology itself is changing the way we interpret the information and why the material is sometimes different than how we remember it to be. She identifies numerous examples throughout her essay that portray the effect that information gained from the internet is leaving on us. Both of these essays present similar ideas of how technology affects us as learners, but they lead into personal experiences and interpretations of the true lesson to be taught about learning with the internet at your
By 1970 ARPA had a problem, the networks it had created where incompatible, so they focused on investigating ways to intercommunicate their networks. The solution to the problem came with the creation of a protocol that every network could understand the TCP/IP protocol, and the internet started. In the early 1980 a group of academic computer scientists formed the Computer Science NETwork, which used TCP/IP protocols, also government agencies started to link their networks using the TCP/IP protocol. Later in the 1980s large commercial companies began to use TCP/IP to build private internets and ARPA investigated transmission of multimedia across the Internet. Little by little new technologies such as hypertext, helped create the World Wide Web.
Computers and ever-changing digital devices are influencing and shaping how an average person lives their daily life. It is a safe assumption that computers, mobile devices and the software that runs on them will impact at least one aspect of our daily lives. When designing the software, were ethical and moral decisions made by the design and IT professionals? What kind of impact do those decisions have on people and how business will be conducted? A software developer and their initial duties are critical because how their relationship is structured within their own environment, the end users and clients environment, and the industry’s environment can have substantial impacts on the functionality and design of the software.
Turkle’s analysis of the computer as a reminiscent object and the human relationship with the object helps us to understand online identity. Undoubtedly, technology has changed the way of leaning and thinking that helps to find the identity of individuals. As we are highly depend on technology and computer in recent times, the dependency and relationship with computer and technology are the potential to severely influence our formation of identity. As Erik Erikson and Turkle rightly said, internet has provide a safe place to find our identity.
I can still remember the excitement that I felt the first time I placed my hands on a keyboard. As Neil Postman states, "What is peculiar about such interpositions of computers is that their role in directing what we will see or know is so rarely noticed," (247). Throughout this paper, I will examine the advancement of inventions, work ethics, jobs, and how the compu... ... middle of paper ... ...ers. "Finally, just as computers shape our world, so our own dreams and desires influence technological change. Where will our dreams and desires drive the technology of the future?"
In addition to ethically handling, the information users must use the system ethically and the systems must be designed to protect against unethical usage. Computers and information systems are constantly growing changing the face of how we do business and interact in the word. In the early 90’s it was said “In the comparatively short space of forty years, computers have become central to the operations of industrial societies” (Forester, 1994, p. 1). This is noteworthy because in a short time not only have we witnessed the evolution of computers evolved but also the system of ethics and policies that govern their usage. With computers becoming mainstream and access to them growing, new ethical dilemmas arise.
It told us at what extent computers are developed for successful interaction with users. With the definition it is observed that it is the discipline concern with design, evaluation and implementation of interactive computing systems for human use. For achieving this it study major phenomena surrounding them. Human Computer Interaction plays a leading role in the creation of tomorrow exciting new user interface software and technology. With the support of broad spectrum of fundamental research transform human computer interaction experience so that the computer is no longer a distracting focus of attention and become invisible tool that empowers the individual user, facilitates natural, productive human-human collaboration.
To comprehend the importance of computer networks in our daily life we need to define what a computer is and show how networked computers influence our lives. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a computer as “one that computes; specifically : a programmable usually electronic device that can store, retrieve, and process data”. [definition of computer] We can see that many devices, which we normally do not consider to be computers, can be redefined as computers, to be precise, these devices are special purpose computing devices. The Merriam-Webster dictionary also formally defines 'network' as "a system of computers, peripherals, terminals, and databases connected by communications lines" and as an "interconnected group or association of persons (as friends or professional colleagues)". [definition of network] This means that networks can be as simple your circle of friends or as complex as a computer network that connects the world.
Cyber Ethics: Rules for Using the Web We all have heard of ethics. According to Webster’s II New College Dictionary (1995), ethics is the rules or standards governing the conduct of a person or the members of a profession. As Winn Schwartau (2001) stated “ethics is also about understanding how your actions will affect other people”. Cyber-ethics is the ethical decisions we make when using the Internet. We are tasked to use the Internet on a daily basis and we task students to use the Internet regularly, but to use it properly we must adhere to ethics.
