Technology is everywhere today. We use technology in our homes to order food and groceries without having to get dressed or put makeup on to get it. We use it at the checkout lines to pay instead of whipping out cash or a credit card. We even use it now to enter our cars and start our engines. But don't we ever stop to think that there might be a lot of issues hidden behind our use of technology so freely?
This brings me to the movie M3GAN. I just watched this movie, and I will say it was way better than the Childs Play reboot that was done a few years ago, but both films are similar in talking about the use of Smart devices and AI Technology. Both films discuss how AI and technology have become more invasive and protruding into daily lives.
In both movies, the children are being sold a doll with AI capabilities as if they were humans. Both dolls can control certain home appliances and smart home devices via the doll or the smartphone app. But in the end, it turns out the same technology we trust ends up turning on the creator and the designated user. This can even go back to 2001, A Space Oddysey.
This brings up a question: Do you believe that the same technologies we use today will come back to bite us in the end? Have we made technology our slaves or become the slaves to technology?
