Digital Vs Human by Robert Watson
by Richard Watson
he book, 'Digital Vs Human', talks about varied topics starting from emotions, health, family relationships, culture, economy, media, societal norms, and community standards and their importance and the effect of technology on these areas. The author has managed well to describe some scenarios of such effects where a reader would sit back with astonishment.
The author also explains in the book about how the Online Social Media is taking the role of a fellow being, a good friend and the best pal and yes sometimes also donning the role of a life partner. While reading this chapter, I remembered the Oscar Nominated\Winning movie ' Her ', where the Operating System in the Protagonist's computer device becomes his emotional and sexual partner. That goose bumps felt while watching the movie were reiterated while reading some chapters. The imaginary life of a human is presented due to too much online social media are
discussed with intrinsic details that will really scare every reader.
The author must be really applauded for the simple yet thought-provoking and straight to point approach in the book while dealing the issues and problems that are anticipated for the future generations in a very simple and clear manner.
What I like:
1.The truth that the human race is now facing
2. The consequences and dangerous results of too much of advent of technology in human lives

Book Title: The book title ' Digital Vs Human' clearly explains that the book is about how computers, technology, and artificial intelligence have overtaken against the human minds and the repercussions in the coming ages.
