When we want to make life simpler or take care of large problems or need greater accuracy we turn to devices. Computers and machines programmed to control these processes can lead to greater capabilities than humans can possibly do on their own. Processing large data inputs now enable robots to operate machinery, applications to simplify and advance business practices, and DNA sequencing to reveal information about human health, agriculture, and environmental issues.
