This was illustrated through the analysis of the processing power and technological advances of robots in 50 years’ time. The technological singularity and the coexistence of machines and humans in the future will prove why machines will become the dominant form of life. Technology has come a long way over the past 50 years and if the current trends continue it is possible that the machines will overtake humans in intelligence. This moment should not be feared but rather greatly anticipated as the singularity and the years after may mark new realisations about the universe, science and nature that could not be predicted with any current systems of intelligence.
A lot of people are stuck between both ideas, the advancements are great but they are also scared that the technology is going to become smarter than the humans and take over the world. Dowd talks about the argument between two guys Demis Hassabis and Elon Musk. The argument was about the idea of artificial intelligence. Hassabis is the creator of advanced artificial intelligence, and Elon Musk is completely against it. Hassabis is the co-founder of DeepMind.
Fear is a sentiment that resonates throughout his article. Johnson hypothesizes that if genetic engineering was legalised, over generations it would create two distinct classes. A "master race" - a genetically enhanced group of human beings who are highly intelligent, attractive and skilled, and a "servile multitude" - those whose parents could not afford to buy their future for them, and are therefore less intelligent and possess no real skills or opportunities. The likelihood of people from either group marrying outside their genetic, social and economic group is slim, since the propensity in modern society is for the educated and intelligent to intermarry and produce even more intelligent, privileged offspring. Johnson claims that this will create deep antagonisms within society since the "master race" will dictate the function and role of the "servile multitude."
If they are happy with their future, then they can make a nation happy with their work. they can develop the power of making important decision regarding their lives and country as well but this is only possible if they are educated enough to take this step. Last but not least reason is that students in college would be able to focus on their courses more to get the best grades in their classes because they don’t have to worry about their fee in the college. In my opinion college education should be free for everyone this can help the country growing faster in every aspect of it. government should look into it and really do something about it because this is the only way we can at least educate our children.
In conclusion, America provides many ways to help reduce the cost of college textbooks but society is still not satisfied with the outcome. The Open Textbook, Affordable Textbook Act, and book store rentals are wonderful programs, but has its disadvantages that hopefully would be resolved in the 2016 presidential elections. The statistics show that many students across the nation benefit from learning with quality of teaching, the amount of accessibility it provides without having to worry about paying off student loans. School administrations should consider about transferring to an act that would benefit both the school and the students, but also provide more equality to the publishers and students.
I. Approaching the Singularity Humanity has slowly been advancing through the agricultural revolution, the industrial age, and now the computer age where it seems that we are no longer slowly advancing. Since the time that Moore predicted how fast the number of transistors would grow on a computer chip, we have faithfully followed that prediction. However, with that prediction we raise an interesting question of what if all of it explodes at some time in the future, not in a literal sense but rather in a mathematical sense. What if in the next few decades the exponential growth that has been occurring for the past 50 years suddenly reaches a point where advances in computing would overtake humanities ability to keep up with it.
Students may want to learn and gain an education, but they are unable to overcome the violence and conflict. School is supposed to be a happy and safe environment that allows students to grow and learn. Unfortunately constantly havin... ... middle of paper ... ...ation of Human Rights states that everyone is entitled to an education; however, many countries are violating this international law. Education is able to beat poverty as well as increase the economic structure of a country. Having educated citizens would increase a country in every way, so they should want.
Consumers would have more money to spend and jobs would be created, increasing the opportunities for countless Americans. The Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012 is the best strategy for forgiving student loans. Educated Americans would be given relief after a reasonable repayment period. Student debts have troubled far too many graduates and their families. It would only be morally correct to free their debts after a ten year period while concurrently aiding the economy.
That being said, there are still several real-life obstacles that impede access to such an education. There are several, specific public policy initiatives that can help alleviate these hindrances. In order for Americans to have more job opportunities with higher wages, Congress must stop the interest rates on student loans from doubling in July, colleges must increase the number of work-study jobs available to students, and extend the Opportunity Tuition Tax Credit. Naysayers may argue that education is a commodity and there is no need for everyone to earn a college degree, however higher education promotes personal discovery, opens up more job opportunities for higher salaries, and increases one’s earning potential in the long run. In other words, the overall earnings from a college degree are significant.
