Technology has permeated our civilization in such a way, that living without it is what apocalyptic movies are based on. Everything from the power grid to clean water, depends on one form of technology or another.
Machine learning, autonomous code, cognitive intelligence, and artificial intelligence combined with the accumulation of data, is accepted as beneficial and is expanding exponentially without any real discussion of the potential repercussions.
Our civilization’s paradigm shift is happening because the corporate culture that built our society is dependent on a workforce that is motivated by extrinsic rewards; a workforce that is willing to give up the intrinsic reward of value creation (health, happiness, family, etc.) for one of material gain and avoidance of work. We embrace technology that makes our lives easier, healthier, and supports a future that is filled with leisure time.
