IRobot - Technology Taking over Humanity
“Technology is taking over humanity”. This phrase is being proven more and more as technology develops and the years go by. It is more deeply shown through the movie, IRobot. The main message of this movie is to show how our society can change to be completely dependent on technology if we keep on improving it in many different ways such as robotic body parts, robotic systems and robots to do everyday work for humans.
The advances in technology are amazing to some extent and are completely changing how we humans live and really, are saving lives. Many years ago, you didn’t hear many people getting metal hip replacements, or any other body part replaced by some man made machine or object. It’s becoming a common thing to have to give up on the body and rely on machine. As this progresses, eventually humans will continue to be able to replace body parts and essentially, extend the lifetime of a human being and could be considered robots.
Humans currently rely on different robotic parts to fix up parts of their bodies which are not working to the right potential. To fix the different senses such as hearing, doctors surgically implant an electric device that provides a sense of sound to a person which is profoundly deaf. A visual prosthesis is a visual device intended to restore functional vision in those suffering from partial or total blindness.
Robotics are used to transplant living cells, tissues or organs from human to human or human to animal or vice versa. Many concerns may come with this such as the transferring different diseases or possibly the failure of transplanting. Diseases are more common in xenotransplants. Xenotransplant is the transplanting of body parts from animal to human or vice versea. Allotransplant is less risky as it is the transplanting of body parts to and from the same species.
Organ farming or harvesting refers to the removal, preservation and use of human organs or tissues...
