Technology is advancing at a rapid pace every day. This time line has given me a chance to see when the greatest improvements in technology have occurred. The New York Times, time line has given me a greater appreciation for what we have today. But the greatest advances made in technology actually occurred not to long ago. I’m going to talk about some of the accomplishments that I believe helped get us to where we are today. The 1600’s through 1927 were a time where some of the most important inventions of all time were created. In 1879 Thomas Edison created the light bulb. Since then the light bulb has been perfected countless times and it is truly a gigantic millstone on human history. If the light bulb were never invented we would …show more content…
In 1938 Konrad Zuse designs and builds the Z1, the first programmable computer. This basically started everything for computers. Imagine if this never happened and computers today dint exist? How would most people survive? It is a good thing they do exist because I don’t think some people can do without it. The computer is a convenient source to get information. Not only that but millions of other invention have branched off in the computer. I’ll explain, if the computer was never invented that means that everything inside of it or based off it wouldn’t exist either. So computer programming is definitely one of the more important inventions in history. Then in 1958 computers were taken to yet another level. The integrated circuit is invented, allowing computers and electronic devices to be miniaturized. The TX-2 is among the first computers to use transistors instead of vacuum tubes. Which allowed the computers to be developed even further and further in the …show more content…
Collective learning I feel is in our grasp if we can properly decode everything that has to do with our DNA. It basically is old knowledge will not have to be learned; only new knowledge will need to be created. Learning will become obsolete. All known knowledge will be contained on a super computer. Individuals can download all known knowledge pertaining to any subject directly to the brain as desired. I believe that is definitely in our future if we keep working on it. As for bicentennial men, Medical advances will permit the first human to live for a period of 200 years or more. We are improving in medical fields everyday and medical breakthroughs are becoming more frequent. So I believe that this is simply a matter of time. I don’t know how well we will be able to function at 200 but I’m sure they will work on that
