Computers in the workplace
Date: Around 1995
Are computers going to take over the working world?
The importance of computers in our daily life will continue to increase. I
do not think that anyone will escape the impact, especially in 20th century
America. On the other hand saying that the will "take over the working
world" is probably overstating the situation. More and more equipment that
we work with will have computers incorporated into them (such as dishwash-
ers, soda machines, etc.) so that the human operators will find them easier
to use. But, they are unlikely to replace the flexibility of a human being
in dealing with problems in the workplace. Computers are just another tool
to be used by people to achieve their goals.
