My Take

My Take
The format of a My Take is 150 words – no more, no less – to express an opinion on a different topic each week. This week’s topic was Artificial Intelligence.

Remember in math class thinking to yourself “when am I ever going to use this in real life?” and the teacher would respond with “are you always going to have a calculator on you?”

That teacher probably never thought smartphones would be an everyday tool.

For centuries, society has continued to make technological advancements, making life easier.

You probably drove a car to work today, not a horse, used a phone that wasn’t attached to a wall and even browsed the internet.

We continue to find ways to work smarter, not harder. I’m writing this on a computer – way better than struggling with a typewriter.

Ask Henry Ford, technological advancements and innovations aren’t always bad.

We put a man on the moon, a rover on Mars and who knows what’s next.

AI means opportunities. Embrace it. We’re evolving and AI can help make life better.
