Teknoloji ve İletişim Teknolojilerine Yönelik Ütopik ve Distopik Yaklaşımlar: Jetgiller ve Westworld Örneği İle

Teknoloji, kuşkusuz devamlı suretle gelişim gösteren bir alandır ve faydacıdır. Kendisini süre giden yenilik ya da gelişmeler üzerine inşa eden teknolojinin, faydaları gibi zararları da olduğu özellikle bugünlerde tartışılmaktadır. Çünkü teknolojik her yeni gelişme ve yenilik iletişim alanını da etkilemekte, iletişim teknolojileri gün be gün gündelik yaşamda kemikleşmektedir. Bu yüzden teknoloji ve iletişim teknolojilerine yönelik, oldukça önemli olan ütopik ve distopik yaklaşımlar ortaya atılmıştır. Durum tespiti yapan ütopik ve distopik diziler ve sayılarındaki artış da ilgili durumun önemine dikkat çekmektedir. Öyle ki, yıllar öncesinde Jetgiller’de görülen faydalı birçok teknolojik yenilik bugün gündelik yaşamda yer alırken, Westworld’de yapay zekâ üzerinden teknolojinin aşırılığına vurgu yapılması, hatta evren ve varoluşun dâhi sorgulanması önemlidir. Bu çalışmanın konusu da bu yaklaşımların örnekler üzerinden ele alınmasıdır. Bu sebeple, çalışmada ütopik bir örnek olan Jetgiller çizgi dizisi ile distopik bir örnek olan Westworld dizisi ilgili yaklaşımların analiz edilmesi amacıyla incelenecektir. 

Utopian and Dystopian Approaches to Technology and Communication Technologies: With The Examples of The Jetsons and Westworld

Technology is undoubtedly a field and a pragmatist that is constantly evolving. It is being discussed particularly today that the technology that has built itself on the ongoing innovations or developments has also damages, such as benefits. Because every technological new development and innovation affects the field of communication, and communication technologies get fixed day by day. This situation has led to utopian and dystopic approaches to technology and communication technologies that are very important. Utopian and dystopic series which conduct a situational investigation and their increase, draw attention to the importance of this situation. It is important to emphasize the excessiveness of technology over artificial intelligence and even the questioning of the existence and the universe at Westworld, while many useful technological innovations seen in The Jetsons years ago are in everyday life today. The subject of this study is to discuss these approaches through examples. For this reason, the Westworld series, a dystopic example and The Jetsons cartoon, a utopian example of the study, will be examined to analyze relevant approaches.
