Smart Technology Is Making Us Dumb

A Debate

Streaming Video - 2015
Rate this:
Smart technology provides users vast and instant access to information and to other people, forming a strong and pervasive presence in our lives. But is there a downside to all of this connectivity? Some argue that while smart technology may put a world of knowledge at our fingertips, it also fosters dependency on electronic gadgets, narrows our contacts to echo chambers, and impairs cognitive skills by creating shortcuts and distractions. Are smart-tech devices making us dumber, guiding so much of our decision making that we are losing autonomy without even realizing it? Or are these concerns overblown, an exaggeration of the negative effects of high-tech consumption?
