Do computers help us or hinder critical thinking?
“Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.”
– Pablo Picasso
Computers are moving us forward, they are making us more productive than we have ever been… or are they?
I used to think that human interaction was being stopped by computers until I joing a motorcycle message board. Then I got to meet a lot of people that I called friends around the Chicago area. Then when I moved to Michigan I met a lot of new friends using the message boards and different chat services. So are the computers killing human interaction or redifining it?
Like Picasso said, computers are really useless they can only give you answers. We are the ones that present them with the questions, we are the critical thinking minds that drive them. Even artificial intelligence is just a poor attempt to mirror our capabilities. Would it ever be possible to create a machine that can do critical thinking?
