READ

Nicky: Did you see the show about the latest robots on TV last night?
Kevin: Yes, I did. I’m quite surprised because technology has been evolving too fast.
Nicky: I agree. In the future, I think robots will handle jobs humans do today.
Kevin: Yeah, that might happen, but I think there are jobs that robots can’t do.
Nicky: True. Creative jobs like painting and composing music can’t be done by robots.
Kevin: I think so, too. Robots do what they are instructed to do, but they can’t generate new ideas on their own.
Nicky: We need to balance our way of living with technology.
Kevin: Evolution in technology has its advantages and disadvantages. We need to go about it carefully.
