For this assignment, you will write an argumentative essay on the following topic:
Technology has become an essential component of our society. Some people feel that we have become too reliant upon technology to help us accomplish day-to-day tasks. From spell-check in a word processor to an artificial intelligence performing a Google search, there is little doubt that our culture, as well as our future, is almost completely overshadowed by technology. While some people feel uneasy about such a reliance upon technology, others embrace the digital future and feel we should go even further. What is your position? Do you feel that technology reliance is beneficial or detrimental to individuals, families, and society as a whole?
Write an essay that supports your position. Your essay should total about 800-1000 words.
