Machines for making Human Relations and the Future

Let’s think about these things how to find the balance to make the best use of technology without disrupting social bonds and social relationships

A human being differs from other living creatures in that he possesses intrinsic thinking abilities. Every act done by man is supported by a well-defined thought process. Humans use the eyes and ears as sensors to perceive and feel things. Humans have the cognitive abilities to think and make decisions that are essential to their survival and adaptation. Consider, for example, the way people 50 years ago conducted their day-to-day business activities, whether selling products or buying goods, which compared to the current era can be considered a bit outdated, although the basic entities remain the same throughout the whole process i.e. buyer, seller and store have not changed.

Today, for a seller, a buyer is a user interface with details and for a buyer, a seller can be a mobile screen or a laptop screen with various products displayed. This online market is booming at a very fast pace. Right now, the e-commerce market has reached a level where we have minimal human intervention because machines are supposed to do the bulk of the transactions in this whole bid-ask process. This machine-to-machine communication has taken the dynamism of human civilization to a higher level where everything in a particular production unit is connected by machines from the starting state of production to the final state of production. disposal of goods. An evolved form of this machine-to-machine communication has given rise to a new realm called the “Internet of Things,” where the Internet extends to everyday objects.

This evolution in terms of technology has changed the way we do our daily transactions, for example if in an unfortunate event two cars collide, machines in the form of sensors and actuators will detect these collision signals and instantly when the detection of this collision send signals to the recovery section and the hospital to delegate the appropriate mechanisms to eliminate the crisis that has occurred. Humans have seen phases from hunting, food gathering, nomadic life, urban work to office workers, each phase of human history has been associated with typical lifestyles. These lifestyles have evolved over time and humans have always tried to develop new ways and means of living life. Before the agricultural revolution, the human population was 6–10 million and was smaller compared to the human population of Cairo today. People at that time had limited relationships, because the means of communication were not very developed. Although the population was only 8 million, there was ethnic and cultural variety at the same time. People before the agricultural revolution lived a free and healthy life; solitude and privacy were at the back. People lived as members of a particular band and had relationships within the band. Members of a particular group knew each other very closely and had limited interaction with people outside their group, perhaps they probably didn’t know them. As technology has evolved from handheld calculators to machines that can interact with humans through natural languages, it has brought us much closer, but with new challenges. Imagine someone with a Facebook or Instagram account with thousands of followers and friends, although the number of people the account holder actually knows is very less. This type of virtual relationship has made dependent our behaviors, our culture and our ethical machine which, with each passing day, increases its domination. How not to imagine a day when a machine will interact with another machine, when this machine will have a human name? Let’s think about these things how to strike the balance to make the best use of technology without disrupting social bonds and social relationships, otherwise then humanity in the near future will be totally replaced by machines in the value chain that make “man a social animal”. ”.
