The answer to this question is variable. In other words, it really depends on what is being produced. In some areas, human abilities cannot be matched. For example, when it comes to creative art, technology will never be able to match human ingenuity and creativity. In fact, creativity is a human trait.

However, when it comes to replicating things, technology is usually much faster than human production. I should also add that technology also does it at a cheaper price. To prove this point, all we need to do is to look at the industrial revolution. We will be able to clearly see that the industrial revolution enabled people to manufacture all things at a fraction of time and also in very inexpensive ways. This will continue in the future.

Thank you readerofbooks.I insist that managerial inefficiencies at organisations create unjust manipulation of staff as staff are considered to be redundant especially where it is implied that technology permits or facilitates reduction in/of staff and that the numbers required to cotiue production are less.

The Lord bless you.Jennifer

Good day all We must know how to love the machines we own but that the machines we own, must never replicate our functions and  identities except where they are life-saving and imperative, to the extent that we are denied the most intricate job / employment  humanity has and that is that we must fend for ourselves and our basic needs. Therefore when cloning and creation of bionic humans and other creations are discussed I claim,'No!' and 'never!' and then I claim,' Where is that machine that fabricates like that intent on confounding humanity?' and 'Naughty machine.' The machine is then personalised sufficiently and 'known by its mischievous human creator to be a machine.' The Lord bless you,Jennifer
