  • I think that in 10 years technology will change much more than just our careers. I think that the way we interact with our families, pets, friends, etc. will be altered- whether it be good or bad. I think that technology is also going to make a lot of careers obsolete, as more and more things get automated. I also think it can make certain jobs more efficient though.

  • Yes, I strongly believe that our lifestyles will change due to technology in the next ten years. Based off the past and how it has already done so, to me is almost proof that it will happen again in the future. I think that a lot of existing jobs will be done by technology.I feel that the technology will be a cheaper and more efficient way to do some jobs in the next ten years.
