Hu Ching Fang, the Director of The Kwang Hwa Information and Culture Center, thought that the rapid development of technology is improving our living standard. Meanwhile, people need to know how to use the technology wisely, not to be controlled by it. “How to be alone? It is a question that people need to think about in the Computer Age. ” Hu said, in the General Assembly of the Hong Kong Shue Yan University.

Nowadays, the technology is everywhere in our daily life. It changed the way of communication between people. “In the past, people could not receive the information about other people or the outside world very easily because of the poor technology,” Hu said. People in the past could only focus on what they want and what they need to do. However, people could receive the information and message from the others especially on the social media where people would like to show the best side of themselves in the Computer Age.

“People would compare themselves with their friends, classmates, colleagues or even the strangers on the internet,” Hu said. With the comparison, people become very anxious because they are looking for the recognition from the others. Hu thought that confidence and critical thinking are the keys to encounter the self-doubt. “Knowing what you what to do and what you believe in and having the courage to express yourself are the best answer for the question ‘How to be alone’,” Hu said.

Hu thought that with the rapid development in the big data analytics, the information people received would become more and more homogeneous. “Big Data analytics filters what you don’t like and provides what you like,” Hu said. The information people received are filtered and controlled, not by people themselves, but the internet. For example, Hu was surprised when she found out many couples in Taiwan were met through some dating apps or social media. The internet paired up two people according to their labels which are given by the people themselves. “The possibility of meeting someone with different personality decreases. But romance and life should be full of unknowns and unpredictables.” Hu said.
