It depends on what decade you want to know about. When electronic computers were first being built, they were useful in that could do long, complex calculations in a sho…rt amount of time. This was very critical to space travel, for example. We would not have walked on the moon without computers. In modern times, there are countless different ways computers help society, but in my own opinion, the most useful and socially helpful thing they can do is to run simulations. Lots of new inventions are tested in computer simulations. This is called Computer Assisted Design. Buildings, cars, military weapons, all kinds of things are tested in computer simulations before being built. Just about every car made in the last few years were made using Computer Assisted Design.
As we hurtle towards the 21st century, we must accept the inevitability of a computer revolution in the near future. It is an-inseparable part of development, as demonstrated …by other countries. Computers are no longer luxury or the sole property of the advanced countries. Their appropriate uses in India can help us solve the unique problems of a developing country and bring about the desired changes in increasing literacy, optimizing resources, increasing efficiency, productivity and quality. Already computers have become such an important part of our lives-in airports, banks, railway stations and every well-equipped modern office. As computer continues to proliferate in ever increasing numbers across large segments of Government, business and industry, the common man is beginning to believe hesitantly that computers can actually deliver a good part of the promise that they had offered. Society is gradually accepting the fact that computers will indeed change the manner in which the things are done, Computers can substantially save valuable man-hours by helping people through communication to make reservation of tickets, operate their bank accounts, to pay for electricity water and telephone bills, insurance premium and also do routine shopping. Trains can be operated automatically by computers and traffic signals be computer co-ordinate to produce best traffic patterns, increase reliability and safety and generally provide for more efficient services. The basic industry of India is 'agriculture'. In areas of agriculture and irrigation, computers are making possible better matching of soil characteristics and crop. This coupled with better use of resources like water, fertilizers and sunlight and more precise prediction of monsoons can help India in increasing crop yields manifold. Computer in health is bringing new hope for the sick. In areas of health and medicine, expert systems and data bases on blood groups availability, eye banks medical history of patients etc, can bring about a marked improvement in our health services. Expert system can help in more accurate diagnosis of ailments 'Hospital Information Systems' can help improve the efficiency of our hospitals reduce mortality and death-rates and in general provide better and speedier health care to our people. While this realization is gaining firmer ground in areas like the utility services, railways, airlines, agriculture, health etc., as well as organization control, there is area where the role of computers as the prime agents of change has still not been recognized. That is the area of education. In our country there are over 5,00,000 primary schools of which l/3rd are single-teacher schools. 64% of total population of our country is illiterate. The number of illiterates at present is higher than that at independence. To tackle a problem of such gigantic proportions, it is essential that a modern aids offered by Information Technology are made use of to spread education to the rural areas where most of the illiteracy is concentrated. Computer based lessons developed in various subjects by experts in that area could be used to educate the masses. The computer is a rapidly evolving tool that can now deal quite effectively with all fine forms of information that man deals with for better education are -data, text, image, graphics and voice. One thought can take place in our minds for a moment that 'the computer will replace the teacher-that would be a suicidal thought. But we should fully accept the reality that the computer will radically change the manner in which teaching-learning processes take place. The role of the teacher will undergo a radical change. From being a mere "information dumping machine", the teacher will once again rise to the height of being a mentor, philosopher and guide developing, instilling values, ideas, creating challenges and nurturing feelings, sentiments and empathy in young minds. In the wider prospective, these are what are required for building a strong nation-intellectually spiritually and economically. In the most important area of government administration, to enable administration take the right decision at the right time, accurate, relevant and up-to-date information should be made available to them. Modern computerized communication network can significantly help bureaucracy cut its red tape. Therefore, computers are synonymous with development. With appropriate computer usage and quality of life applications, India will be able to effectively tackle its unique problems. The entire society will undergo a transformation and what would emerge is a society that is more intellectually aware and which values its time, intellect and dignity. A society armed with computer expertise can meet with confidence the exciting new India of tomorrow.
What kinds of challenges do computers bring to a digital society and how does becoming computer fluent help you deal with these challenges?
Challenges that computers bring to society would be: - People get replaced by computers. - tree's get sved, because people typ instead of write. - Find definations easily, ins…tead of searching through a dictionary - Identity thefts - hackers - lose information easily. If your compurter crashes or malfunctions - medical - easy to demonstrate things to a school or class

Computers play an important role in government daily work. It first replaced typewriters for the production of government documents, before being called upon for larger tasks… such as emails. In the new generation armies, computers also help the army, and thus the government defend the nation by being integrated into military systems, such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
computer has has a VERY important impact in our life because it helps do most of our work in our daily life like giving us knowledge about the world we live in and doing some …work that can't be done by animals or humans so, so without the computer we wouldn't be so smart. computers are in our every day life: (school, work, church, etc. In life most of the time for jobs like: real estate agent and veterinarian and teacher and lots of other jobs you have to know how to use a computer to do your every day work.
there are so many applications of computer in our society....first one is the spread sheet....spread sheet is a computer program for manipulation and retrieval especiall…y for tabulated figures for accounting....such a sheet of computer program simulated by electronically for computer software......secondly is the database.....next is music player...etc.....that's all i know.....thanks
Well me, personally they help me with finding out data, and studying for assignments, etc. They also help me because I don't like writing on paper that much, but it is way eas…ier with computers
Yes it can help people by giving them information and information is needed to help improve the human race.
Computers are widely used in the educational environment from elementary schools to universities. The majority of schools teach basic computer literacy and also run their own …websites. Here, everything from notices and announcements to past lecture notes and reading lists can be viewed.
Computers can help you in many different ways. Messaging: If you know that someone will be on their computer at home, you can email them a message, instead of a lon…g chat on the 'dog n bone' (phone). Homework or Projects: If you have homework to do and the public libraries don't interest you with any information, the internet is a great place to quickly type in the subject you're looking for and there is bound to be at least one website containing some info you need. Work: When you're older and have a job, you need to quickly write things down, but if you have a laptop near by, bullet points on Word can come in handy! It's neatly jotted down and you can actually read it!!! You have the option to change fonts or underline the important bits or highlight them in RED! You can even save it onto the computer so it's there for other uses, or print it out or copy it onto a USB (Memory Stick) so you can transfer it to other computers OR...email it to other students or teachers. Gaming: For young children to late teens, the computer is a great creation, used for listening to music or just the ordinary site searching for games that catches your eye. There is many games to choose from such as: Dress-up, Racing, Make-Over, Cooking and much more...and if the internet games don't fancy you, then you can always put in one of those fun CD-Roms like Sims or Britannica for that great word (HOMEWORK)! Hope this helps, but I know that computers are a great thing to me, I just wish I had a new one! Hopefully that'll be my Christmas Present!!!
they can help society by sharing information.they also make everday life easier.
Computers are changing society because technology in computers are so advanced. You can now webchat on skype with anyone around the world with no cost! Or email! Also movie ma…king, Itunes, and almost anything you can imagine is availble on MACS!
where is the answer?
