Also, genetic engineering will allow us to mix plants and animals.
As computers have advanced, they have helped us remember, calculate, organize, and clarify. So it will become easier to deal with things, and much quicker. At a point in a future time, some may claim that computers become about as smart as Newton or Einstein. More advanced computers will be able to be creative, respond to feelings in a feeling way, develop intuition, recognize patterns, and suggest innovative alternatives. There is a hope if we choose to take action. We can select Internet information wisely, choose healthy computer games, limit our exposure to television commercials, and select television programs carefully. People will be aware of the importance of keeping active, getting outside to do more physical activities. We will also plan to make a major sacrifice the next time we buy a car, take the bus. Everybody will be more concerned about making environmentally friendly choices, eating healthy, and helping build a healthier society by shopping at better stores that sell better food.
Most people will be aware that a happy, loving family is a joy to be part of, and that it is a necessary foundation for building a strong society. But it is extremely important for our future that we maintain a healthy perspective. We need to value and appreciate the importance of what can be achieved by loving and committed parents.

What happens if, or when, robots are more intelligent than us? If we are going to start to see robots running around with personalities equivalent to human beings, in fifteen or twenty years. It is about time that we start thinking about that now. These machines are being developed. What will be the ultimate effect of this? Should they be allowed to make decisions regarding the application of labour force? What form and how intimate should human-robot relationships become? Is it a good or bad thing if robots become our natural successors and we fade into extinction?
Today's computers operate using transistors, wires and electricity. Future computers might use atoms, fibers and light. A new NASA-developed computing device allows machines to work much like the brain. This technology may allow fast-thinking machines to make decisions based on what they see. A planetary rover might use this technology to avoid obstacles. A spacecraft might use the technology to avoid hazards and identify a pre-selected landing site with very high precision. The device works much like the brain, whose power comes from the complex networks of interconnections called "synapses" between brain cells. Networks of these brain cells, called neurons, allow humans to make instant decisions based on an observed image or scene.
What might the world be like, if computers with the size of molecules become a reality? There will be the types of computers that may be everywhere, but never be seen. Bio - computers with very small size will target specific areas inside your body. Imagine the ways that billions of tiny, powerful computers will change our society.
In the future, robots will take place of the human labor force. .
a. True 	b. False 	c. No information
Human beings will be in danger of extinction due to robots' destruction.
a. True 	b. False 	c. No information
