When graphing exponential growth, the graph eventually reaches a point where growth seems almost vertical, but it is not actually vertical and it is also known as the Technological Singularity. It is a time that seems like Artificial Intelligence is possible, where intelligence levels exceed the human intelligence today: the human brain is meant to learn from interactions and experiences, but technology is advancing and is now targeting young children and somehow is trying to create human robots. A time where people have the knowledge of a computer may be a dream to many people, but various studies show how screen media and technology can affect children’s development negatively. Young children are becoming less efficient due to the continuous development of technology, which causes children to overuse advanced technology that can overstimulate the child’s brain that is designed to gain knowledge by interacting with others.
