Disadvantages of Computer

The main disadvantages of computers are :
2. Dependency
3. Environment
4. Feeling Less


Computer is a dumb machine and it cannot do any work without instruction from the user. It performs the instructions at tremendous speed and with accuracy. It is you to decide what you want to do and in what sequence. So a computer cannot take its own decision as you can.

› Dependency

It can do a task only if it can be expressed in a series of finite steps leading to the completion of the task. It does not have intuition. It cannot draw a conclusion without going through all intermediate steps.

› Environment

it cannot handle a situation where a finite number of steps generate an impossibly large number of computational operations. It cannot learn from experience. It will commit the same error repeatedly and cannot learn from experience. But changes are taking place in this areaas research progresses on artificial intelligence.

› Feeling Less

It does not have feelings or emotion, taste, knowledge and experience. Thus it does not get tired even after long hours of work. It does not distinguish between users.
