1 Cheah Hoe Leong Seow Jing Ye Park Seong Jin Chua Jie Han

2 What?  What is science and technology? Science -The study of nature (things that revolve in around us) Technology - Application of science

3 What?  Perceived future - Life without hardships - Increased use of technology in life due to advancement in S&T - Mechanical Aid in daily life i.e robots - Many industrial jobs replaced by machines.

4 What?  What is the perception of the future in science fiction ? - Most of them are negative - Halo – Destruction of Human Race by technologically advanced alien race

5 What?  - Blade runner – Technology is no longer enslaved by humans  Ironically, technology itself is starting to enslave humans  Replicants in the movie are both mentally and physically superior to humans

6 Reason  Why would humans want to “advance” in terms of science and technology? -Free themselves of the restrictions nature once imposed on them -Be free to shape and influence their surroundings at their will -Improve people’s lives and make them happier

7 Reason  Why would it be ironic to say that innovations in science and technology an improvement in our daily life? -People become more reliant on science and technology as it improves -Enslaved by science and technology -Lose the original meaning of science and technology to help humans free themselves of the restrictions nature once posed on them

8 Reason  Why does science and technology not necessarily make people happier? -Not all science and technology will be used to improve people’s lives -May be used to manufacture weapons -Destroy lives

9 Assumptions  What are the assumptions people make when they say they had already “advanced” in science and technology? -People are able to achieve more things with the help of technology -People assume that advances in science and technology will make their lives better- off

10 Assumptions  What are the assumptions present when people say that they have control over technology?  They are assuming that technology will not be capable of its own intelligence  Big assumption that technology will always be below human’s intelligence

11 Implications  Blade Runner-serves as a warning  Bleak environment-sunlight never reaches  Resembles the abyss  We get complacent when it comes to the level of advancement

12 Implications  Humans get further and further from what we can call “humans”  Gets to a point where the line between man and machine becomes blurred  Loss of our culture, our heritage

13 Truth  Neither can Science nor Technology be controlled by humans totally  Technology will exceed the intelligence of human beings  Human are rely too much on science and technology

14 Truth  Advancement in technology may not be always be for the pleasure of humans, it may be for other purposes (nuclear weapons)

15 Truth  As technology keeps improving and improving, it shows a possibility that it may encompass the whole world in its power one day  Research shows that by 2015, computers would exceed the intelligence of the mouse and by the near future (around 2030), they would exceed the intelligence of humans

16 Truth
