While growing up, most of us look forward to being of benefit to society by pursuing careers in fields such as medicine and law. Although computer science is deemed by most people as not being directly helpful to society, it is one of the best careers for people who really want to change the world.
Computer Science should be recognized as beneficial to the society, just like the other careers. It is of great importance to the society in the following ways:
It has improved communication up to an extent that the world is commonly referred to as a global village. People can now send emails through their phones, and video conference to people in other parts of the world.
It has aided modern education whereby people can learn, research and submit assignments online.
It has come up with solutions for various problems by coming up with various software and by even improving the solutions by making services like ‘Uber’ be easily accessible.
It has enabled secure protection for people and organizations through offering digital protection. It also offers protection to the people by digital verification of fingerprints.
The above examples are just a few examples that show the importance of computer science to the society. We can’t deny it — computer science can be applied extensively to transform the world.
