Can humans and manifestations of artificial intelligence develop genuine, meaningful relationships? Why/why not?

I do not believe that humans and manifestations of artificial intelligence can develop genuine meaningful relationships. Artificial intelligences are computers and systems and programs and for a human to have a genuine meaningful relationship with a computer does not seem logical. There may be people out there that develop these feelings but, I personally doContinue reading “Can humans and manifestations of artificial intelligence develop genuine, meaningful relationships?

Is it necessary to unplug sometimes? How much/how often? What would be the benefits and what would be the drawbacks? If not, why not?

I believe that it is necessary to unplug sometimes. I believe a person should be on their phone for 15 minutes and then take a break for one hour per day. That may seem extreme but, usually no one needs to be on their phone more then 15 minutes unless there is an important conversationContinue reading “Is it necessary to unplug sometimes?

Wearable devices like i-watches are now fitted with heart rate trackers, gyroscopes and accelerometers to help keep the user healthy and physically fit. Do you think more technologies will create a healthy and better society in the near future? Can you reconcile your response with the high level of obesity in American society?

I believe that technologies will try and create a healthy and better society in the near future but, it all depends on the person to do the activity themselves. There are fit bits that help you track your steps for the day and they make it fun by having an app that is connected toContinue reading “Wearable devices like i-watches are now fitted with heart rate trackers, gyroscopes and accelerometers to help keep the user healthy and physically fit.

Do you think that relationships formed online can be superior to those formed offline in terms of closeness? Is there a point at which an online relationship would have to migrate offline, for you? Discuss.

I do not believe that relationships formed online can be superior to those formed offline in terms of closeness. A relationship formed online is not as personal as one offline. People communicate through a screen constantly and have no face to face contact unless they use a video chat. This can cause “Cat-fishing” or evenContinue reading “Do you think that relationships formed online can be superior to those formed offline in terms of closeness?

Are digital technologies an extension of ourselves? Why/why not?

Yes, digital technologies are an extension of ourselves because everything we post on social media websites are an extension of ourselves and what we think. We only post things that we are in to and have meaning to or we post things that we are against and may comment on it because it is constantlyContinue reading “Are digital technologies an extension of ourselves?

Some people think that the digital divide problem should be addressed on a global scale, while others believe it is better to deal with it nationally. Discuss both sides of this issue.

I can see how a digital divide problem should be addressed on a global scale because of outsourcing of jobs. this outsourcing of jobs is when a job starts in one country and then they relocate to another country making more cheap in this one country and leaving another country. In the book it reads,Continue reading “Some people think that the digital divide problem should be addressed on a global scale, while others believe it is better to deal with it nationally.

How can you tell when information or websites on the internet are fake or credible? Explain and provide at least one example of each

It is ideally hard to tell whether information or websites on the internet are fake or not because a lot of the time people who think some news are fake just simply disagree with what they are stating so they consider it to be fake while others may believe it to be true. One wayContinue reading “How can you tell when information or websites on the internet are fake or credible? Explain and provide at least one example of each”

Do you think the increase in digital spaces (social media platforms, websites, chat areas, discussion boards, online games, work spaces, classes, conferences, hangouts, email and text messages) has brought people closer together and/or encouraged isolation among people? Explain your position.

I believe it all depends on how a person looks at digital spaces. In some ways I believe that it brings people together by connecting with one another on these digital spaces bringing people closer because they have the same interests, (eg. online games). It also has brought people closer together because through Instagram sharingContinue reading “Do you think the increase in digital spaces (social media platforms, websites, chat areas, discussion boards, online games, work spaces, classes, conferences, hangouts, email and text messages) has brought people closer together and/or encouraged isolation among people?

In general, was communication clearer and more effective before the advent of social media? If so, in what ways? If not, why not?

Communication was definitely clearer and more effective before the advent of social media because people did not have digital devices in front of their faces distracting them from interacting with the people around them. People were forced back in the day to communicate with each other to avoid awkward silence but, now a days toContinue reading “In general, was communication clearer and more effective before the advent of social media?

Are Digital Devices Impacting Offline Communication? How?

Yes, I believe that digital devices are impacting offline communication because people fail to talk in person now a days and use their digital devices when they are out in public with other people. For example, many people who go out to eat tend to be on their phone more then talking to the peopleContinue reading “Are Digital Devices Impacting Offline Communication? How?”
