Computers started a new age when they first began to make an impact on society, even the arrival of the simple calculator, the Z1, which was built in Germany around 1931 by Konrad Zuse had the potential to change the world.
In a story called ‘The Feeling of Power,’ Asimov portrays how people started using computers to do even simple mathematical calculations.

In the novel ‘Nine Tomorrows’ Isaac Asimov often criticizes our reliance on computers by portraying a futuristic world where computers control humans.
One of the images, which Asimov describes in the book, is that humans might become too dependent on computers.
In one of the stories – Profession, Asimov writes that people would no longer read books to learn and improve their knowledge.
People would rely on the computers rather than ‘try to memories enough to match someone else who knows’.
