Technology is a pervasive force that significantly influences our lives in various ways, particularly with the widespread integration of AI.
The impact of software on us is not always apparent, as we've learned from years of using social media. It's crucial to be aware of how technology can amplify certain behaviors while constraining others.
Gone are the days when we could perceive technology as neutral, merely consisting of data collection, processing, or output devices. We now understand that information possesses influence beyond our explicit requests or desires. In many ways, information has agency.
Therefore, it's imperative to ensure that our technology choices align with our values, contribute to our objectives, and, most importantly, reinforce the behaviors essential for achieving our mission.
Failing to do so may result in reinforcing what benefits technology at the expense of our own interests.
Be mindful of your technology choices and choose wisely.
