People have been changing their interest in looking beyond the traditional economic measures of success, such as income, employment and gross domestic product, towards non-economic facets of well-being and social progress, such as health, and happiness. I do believe that both advanced technology and free education can well have positive consequences for the quality of citizens’ lives.
Innovative technologies, especially those strongly associated with human being’s lives, can play a significant role in promoting well-being. As people live longer, the number of the elderly and those with disabilities are supposed to rise humanoid robots could be introduced to help them get rid of hard-pressed situations by helping them doing household chores or performing kitchen tasks, and particular robot can also be used to help patients suffering from depression and stress or as a way to increase brain activity and encourage communication. All of these contribute to a better life.
And as well as the quality-of-life technology, free education is wildly believed to have positive effect on better health and reduced crime. Education can offer an ideal environment for children to develop healthy habits and manage illness. For example, nutritiously balanced school meals can help follow healthy eating habits, and those PE lessons inform them about the importance of keeping fit. Rules and ethos of school help individuals obey the law and share the value of the whole society, which can lead to a significant reduction in crime.
New technology and free education are actually not mutually exclusive, and both of them can be adopted by government to create better life for citizens.
