    Man versus Machine
    There are some arguments and opinions about Man versus Machine. There are computers in cars, televisions, cd players or washing machines…
    We can predict some good and bad sides. Ask some questions about the future of these tecnological development and artificial inteligence that have to do with man and robots, what has to do with Man versus Machine? There is a bad side: computers / robots replace man’s work. This causes unemployment. Computers may be in controle very soon. Will they destroy man? There is also a good side. Computers store a great amount of information, we can communicate with people easily and quickly. Computers and robots simplify work, computers/robots do repetative taks and electrical aplicatons are a great help at home. Can we imagine a world where machines can rule? This is most liklely to come true.
