Wozniak on humans and technologyAt the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif., Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak discusses how humans are dependent on technology.
If you think about these early computers we saw that they made very few of that cost, you know, billions of today's dollars, for the military, those were very important steps to them. And all of a sudden, we've lost a lot of control; we can't turn off our internet, we can't turn off our Smartphones, we can't turn off our computer. How would we live a life without any of those things, you know, for the next 6 months or something? How would we, you know, cars without computers? So, all of a sudden, technology we've just built in to help us, but we're depending on. And eventually, we're gonna have to do on every task we can on the world so we can seat back and relax, but now, we're not needed as much as the technology. So, who's the master and who's the slave, I always think. But it's not like we designed these machines that would be intelligent enough to take over, like it happens by accident without us knowing what we're doing.
