Speaking on the 81st birth anniversary celebration of late journalist Prabhash Joshi near Rajghat in the national capital, BJP MP Murli Manohar Joshi said that ever grooming technology has trapped humans inside computers.
“Technology has entered our lives so much that we cannot get rid of it no matter how much we try. Technology is very magical. We are going into space, finding life on other planets, progressing in medicine, artificial intelligence etc.Question arises that on one hand we are going towards these things but we humans are also getting closed in a computer. Technology is like parasite,” he said
While addressing the large gathering at the event, MP from Kanpur pointed out many companies making handsome amount of money by misusing the information of public. He also referred to Aadhaar being the newest form of data collection.
“Aadhaar is the new technology which takes all your information. Human identity has now become a number. Earlier it was the name and address of a person which he identified with. Now your identity is your bank account number, Aadhaar number, phone number etc.,” he said.
Laying stress on the technology being highly misused, the politician further added that human are becoming dependent on the technology which is alarmingly harmful for the society.
“People rely on everything ‘Google’ says. Judges also give judgement using ‘Google‘. Teachers use it. It is an era of techno-savvy education. There is a lot of reliability and dependability,” Joshi said.
