CT Perspective – Team 5 The Future of Work

This week’s team is my turn for presentation. My work is presenting about one interesting aspect of Future of Work.
The Idea of Basic Income
To start with technologies and internet advancement, the ways of human works will change even it is not reached its peak yet. As physical work, repetitious tasks, and even some aspect of research are into the rise of increasingly intelligent and efficient machines and software.
Many people believe that job growth cannot keep up with the automation these days and keep accelerating. In conclusion people will will having difficulties of finding a job especially general labour. For instance, KIVA robots / drone in amazon ‘s has already make the job more easier in terms of time efficiency since human might takes hour to find, locating or roam for the goods around the warehouse.

The moot was : In the near future,there would be no need for humans in the workplace for we would be replaced by technology.

Many people agree with the moot because the human need technology to make the work easier but not been fully replaced because the machines itself need a maintenance or a supervisor to control them. Secondly, there was a discussion maybe AI could developing or learning themselves to become better and better.

CT Perspective Team 4 – Art & Technology

Team 4 presentation is about Art & Technology from past,present and future which in the past people are more into traditional-art since the technologies is limited. In present technologies keep growing fast and improved. For instance, Google Autodraw is invented to help making a better sketches and illustration for some people who lack of drawing skills.

The group’s moot was:
“Forget painting, We have Technology”

My group reaction about this moot that it is good to be flows with technologies which could help our work more efficient and faster. Some people are in opinion we should keep doing traditional way in order to respect the old ways of doing art and the passion of doing it. In my opinion, I would like agree and disagree somehow the technologies these days keep improved so fast and it surround our life whether you like it or not, whether you need it or not, everything become hi-tech. I think we also should not totally all out on technologies since I believe the way people approach art is by traditionally doing it and learn faster by doing traditionally. For instance, Picasso always doing another way of art painting such as sculpture study to get to know better on how he could make a better painting.

CT Perspective Team 3- Future of Content

Team 3 presentation about Future of Content, which how the future content like media social and the AI (Artificial Intelligence) could analyze the demand by keep learning  or tracking the keyword.

The Moot was:
“Customized Content will improve productivity and provide characteristic information. However, it will cause people to be less independent.”

Many groups include mine, agreed with the statement how the technology itself improved and gives us information based on what is our most interest to feed. But many disagree that it will cause people to be less independent. Personally, I think that people will still trying to find the information or content by their hard work to prove that the source is reliable or from accurate references. AI filter system is mostly gather information as much as possible and spam it based on USER EXPERIENCE which people sometimes get a wrong / inaccurate source.

CT- Perspective team 2

The second team presentation was about VR (Virtual Reality) & AR (Augmented Reality).
Moot:
In 30 years time, people will spending more time in a virtual world than in non-virtual world.

Most people in class could not agree more with this moot that:

– VR technology can be used for medical purposes such as the medical machine with precision or when people cannot see something small that normal eyes cannot seen.

– Nowadays VR & AR mostly used for visual satisfaction like gaming , people use them for relaxing purposes, escaping from reality.

– VR & AR price is quite expensive that only few people afford to buy that. But most people in class agree that many will become cheaper after this thing become mainstream and maybe with technological improvement in the future they will created to be smaller something like only to put on ear, microchip or maybe only a bracelet.

– VR technology can be used for medical purposes such as the medical machine with precision or when people cannot see something small that normal eyes cannot seen.

– The hi-tech era in the future people might only communicate by VR and could easily pick or ignore a person the want or do not want to be with.

In my opinion, I like to agree with the moot because it could not be denied that technological development is very close with us not only to be observe but obtain. I think the flaw is people will become less sociable with each other in real world and live/spend most of their time in virtual world. Maybe the radioactive/radiation from the technology could have side effect with human metabolism and health.

CT Perspective – Team 1

Team 1 presentation is about 3 futurism artist and giving a moot for a class to discuss.

Starting by the 3 artists MARSHALL McLUHAN, ALVIN TOFFLER, RAY KURZWEIL history and then  we explore into deep discussion that “Does our memory become worse or getting better with the rise of technology

Many kind of opinion emerge such as

  • The technology keep developing nowadays that we do not need to keep too much information in our mind instead of storing in a disk or drives.
  • People nowadays become more relying almost everything on  technologies.
  • Social media already here to help keeping information (data).
  • In the future Nano bots will be able to help on keeping our memory not only in devices instead in the cloud.

In conclusion i would like to agree with the moot. It cannot be denied that the new generation will depends on technologies because it make our lives more easier and we as human were created to evolve.
