Introduction

Could the concept of the 'network' brought to us by computers and the Internet ultimately transform our perception of not only our reality, but also of ourselves? Just what will it mean to have embedded computers, computers so small that they will be no more than fluff in our pockets? We still have to discover what the future might hold if computers really do become an integral part of our lives as some predict. As we think about life, perception and our future we have to make this question: Are we really in an evolutionary process, with computers co-evolving with us? Wireless technology can provide many benefits to computing including faster response to queries, reduced time spent on paperwork, increased online time for users, just in time and real time control, tighter communications between clients and hosts. The network is a faster and a very good way to communicate that can change completely our points of view and perception of things which can make us to do and think about weird things. ...read more.

It may not be the case that we need to word-process faster or play sophisticated games, but simply being able to talk to our computers and to interact with them by gestures and getting them to recognise things in a similar way that human beings do, that takes enormous amounts of computing power. And if we think about the way that people interact with technology. I think these innovations will allow future computers to be more portable, more accessible with their own voices and personalities. I say accessible in the sense that it actually communicates with you and will give you a huge sense of personal reward. Perhaps on the future computers will be able to think for themselves and have a mind like a human or they can just be increasingly complex machines. The concept of the 'network' brought to us by the computers and The Internet can transform our perception of not only our reality but also of ourselves. These recent years technology has grown a lot in a very short space of time and with network and Internet we can travel through all the world, of course in a Virtual way but that helps us in a lot of things. ...read more.

Conclusion

The risks inherent in overconfidence in technology may conflate the transfer of information and knowledge. The distinction between these two concepts refers to information being the precept while knowledge provides the concepts and means of integrating the data. Technological advances offer a solution for dealing with the increasing amount of data and information by extending the natural qualities and capacities of the human mind. Technology may aid the processing and storage of information in a fast and accurate manner, but the sentient being manipulating the information is the one that has knowledge. Reducing knowledge to just information transfer weakens and overly simplifies the idea of education and thereby confuses the need for understanding the concepts for the manipulation of the information. Thus, on the one hand, new information and data grow exponentially, but on the other hand, computers and other related tools provide wider and faster access and usage of the available data. To finish I think that Internet can improve and can give the big difference between virtual and real worlds. The perception of people can change with the new technologies but we should always think about it and make our own questions to us. ...read more.
