What Machines Can’t Do

What Machines Can’t Do | What Machines Can't Do | Scoop.it
What human skills will become more valuable as computers take over more and more duties?
ixchel perez's insight:

David Brooks article, “What Machines Can’t Do” (Feb 3, 2014), explains that human skills are becoming less valuable because there are many things that machines are capable of doing in a better matter and more effective than a human but he also asserts that there are things that humans can do but machines can’t, those things will never be replaced by a machine. Brooks backs up this claim up by demonstrating some of the unreplaceable things: machines don’t have feelings, they can’t think on their own if they are not activated to do so, humans can. Brooks’ purpose is to point out to the people that not every skill that a human has can be replaced in order to aware the reader that they don’t have to worry about losing their job to a machine because there are still many things that humans will be needed for. Given the informal language used in the article, Brooks is writing to an audience who have been victims of being replaced by machines.

Beyond the Brain | What Machines Can't Do | Scoop.it
Advances in neuroscience promise many things, but they will never explain everything.
ixchel perez's insight:

David Brooks article, “Beyond the Brain” (June 17, 2013) asserts that there is too much to the human brain that it is hard to understand it, many scientist have studied the brain and there is many unexplainable things about it and the way it works is very unique. Brooks backs up this claim up by giving the example of how the human body will appreciates a glass of water when the human is dying of thirst and when is not, also he explains many of the actions of a brain according to a situation. Brooks purpose is to point out to the reader that the human brain has infinity explanations to it in order to aware the reader that brain can also be very bipolar. Given the technical language used in the article, brooks is writing to a well-educated audience with some knowledge of human brains and the science behind it.

Weed: Been There. Done That.

Weed: Been There. Done That. | What Machines Can't Do | Scoop.it
It is one thing for kids to experiment with marijuana, but it’s something else for it to be legal for adults to use anywhere, everywhere.
ixchel perez's insight:

David Brooks’s article, “Weed: Been There. Done That.” (2014), argues that states like Colorado and Washington legalized weed and enhanced individual freedom but they are also causing more producers to fall into addiction and the economy will also drop as well. He backs up this claim by giving personal experiences and facts about studies of the economy in the states in witch marijuana is legal. Brooks’s determination in this article is to inform the reader about the damaging effects of legalizing marijuana in order to preclude other countries from legalizing it. Given the informal language this article is intended to weed consumers and people who are against weed legalization in their country.

The Confidence Questions

The Confidence Questions | What Machines Can't Do | Scoop.it
Is there a relationship between gender and self-confidence? Dear Readers, please ponder the matter in your own lives and send in written reflections. We seek responses from men and women.
ixchel perez's insight:

David Brooks article, “The Confidence Question” (April 22, 2013) argues that we as human beings tempt to be under confident especially women, self-esteem is an issue to the humans because it brings down the confidence of living. Brooks backs up this claim by giving the example of the ad of Dove, it’s about a woman who is describing herself to a painter who cannot see her face, then they ask other people to describe the face of that same lady, at the end she sees both paintings and the ugliest painting is the one that she described herself, in order to prove that woman are often concerned and uncomfortable with themselves but the argument is that not only women have this problem but men as well this also shows the effects of self-esteem. Given the technical language used in this article, brooks intended audience are not only women with low self-esteem but men too.
