From the Paper:"Introduction
It is largely assumed that the advances in information technology realized in the latter half of the 1900s resulted in productivity gains in the workplace. Computers were able to perform millions of calculations far faster and with greater accuracy than their human counterparts, robots could work 24-hour shifts without breaks and without varying from a set pattern, and the World Wide Web makes it possible to communicate with individuals throughout the world. There have, in fact, been significant increases in productivity in various work functions, but there are also disadvantages in relying too heavily on technology. This research examines some of the areas which have realized productivity gains (including expert systems and Web.based training), and also considers the trap of information technology."
