The impact of information technology on human life
In the 21st century is the century of information and telecommunication technologies. A large number of organizations specialized in the particular field of computer technology, as it is the most current and going forward, the direction. Even 20-30 years ago mankind and could not imagine that the computer can fit on the palm of your hand, I say computer, as a normal mobile phone supports a lot more features than the first computers.
Many countries switched to so called "information society", some are in the process of transition, depending on factors affecting a particular population. Less attention is given to printed publications: scientists say that in 30 years Newspapers, magazines, books disappear from the shelves.
On the one hand, the electronic page is good, less harm to the environment, and to store large amounts of information easier and more convenient in electronic form. On the other hand, humanity is becoming more dependent on technology. Many even can't imagine what they would do if, for example, forget your phone at home, that equates to tragedy. A large number of those who are just killing time on social networks, live communication is replaced by a set of letters on the computer, and the gestures and facial expressions smiles. Yes, it is good for those who are far away from each other, or because of some other reasons are physically unable to see. But we abuse of such benefits as living in the neighborhood communicate via the network and devices. People just stopped going to visit and see each other.
It should be noted that information technology (it), firmly entrenched in our lives and facilitated our lives. After all, how much effort and time was spent on the calculation of economic processes, as it includes many factors affecting the economy, but if, and compute as results of economic processes for the same business, at the level of a region or the whole country the calculation was carried out a few days, and the accuracy of these calculations is poor. Today, any calculations are performed using computers. The results are accurate, and are calculated in seconds.
Created programs that help banking professionals, economists, accountants, designers, and space exploration in General, mankind could only dream of. The list is endless and to list all the professions, as information technology has penetrated into almost all spheres of human life. Computer knowledge the most important requirement for employment.
One of the areas that has been affected by information technology is education. In schools began to make electronic diaries of pupils by which parents learn about the progress of their child. In Universities and other educational institutions teachers, more practice of dumping lectures on electronic media, as well as practicing self-study topics. Thus, the need in visiting of lectures is reduced. Handing coursework or thesis for review, the student can simply throw their work to the teacher by email, while reducing the time spent on journey to place of study, and time of the teacher: he can check the work at a convenient time and send the student with guidance for improvement. In principle, the difference between full time and correspondence forms of training is reduced; and in another case, students independently study the topic.
Also worth noting is the importance of distance learning. People with disabilities have a chance to get an education, to develop mentally.
Also information technology have strongly influenced the quality of investigations of crimes of every kind, from minor violations on the way to serious crimes involving the death of a person. There are different kinds of lie detectors, a program that can detect a person's location, allowing a variety of types of examinations, thereby reducing the percentage of errors in the conduct of the investigation.
The percentage of errors decreased as in investigations and in medicine. This is another area where a major breakthrough and a leap forward was made thanks to information technology. Began to carry out operations on vital organs: what died today treated.
Have the opportunity to diagnose any organ and to identify the disease: a mistake here can only be a doctor.
In conclusion, I would like to mention and highlight one important criterion that plays in our lives an important role: it's in our hands. How we will be dependent on the computer we define ourselves. The man himself determines how to spend time, how to live life. And if you use it and other benefits only for useful purposes, and the extent of life will become easier not only for us but for future generations, and they will not have to suffer from our carelessness and laziness.
