    Post correcting an essay about computer intelligence.

    Could you please correct this writing for me? Thanks~
    ( PS: First paragraph is the writing task. )


    Some people think it is very soon that computers will be more intelligent than humans. Some people think it is a positive development, while others think it is a negative development.
    Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

    We have been carried on computer revolution for many years, with computer intelligence growing by leaps and bounce, there is a significant possibility that computers will be more intelligent than human being in near future. The computer development has became a controversial topic in terms of its effects on people.

    Proponents of computer development point out that computer intelligence has permeated every aspect of people’s life, which has obvious advantages to society. First of all, computer development created a large dollop of economic value to society due to easy-control computer programs, which saved labor cost and facilitated work efficiency. What is more, with computer programs, people could take advantage of efficacious machine to complete tough and dangerous works for human. A case in point is glass-wall cleaning robot system for high-rise buildings. Last but not least, computer intelligence has made people’s life various and convenient, without computer science, people would not enjoy the joy of using cell phone , airplane and so on.

    On the contrary, opponents look at sharp development of computer in another visual angle. Thinking of the ability and potential value of computer intelligence, they worry that it will cause several disadvantages as below: First, it will cause a hundreds and thousands of people lose their job and then cause social turbulence; Second, it can be used by criminals to blackmail website or made illegal objects; Third, artificial intelligence system might out of people’s control, and then threaten lives and society.

    Both sides make sense, computer intelligence is a double-edged sword. During its development, there must have unpleasant results like soaring unemployment rate and internet insecure. While every transform have pros and cons, as long as we take measures to minimize the side effect of computer intelligence, we can use it to pave a better way for the future. All in all, the development of computer science is excellent opportunity and challenge for human, we should embrace the opportunity and face the challenge in the meanwhile.

    - Your opening sentence doesn't make sense. You are expected to introduce the topic to the reader in that sentence; e.g., "Computer technology continues to advance at a rapid pace."
    - You should avoid colloquialisms and informal/semi-formal expressions like "leaps and bounds" in your essay writing.

    That's good as the issue statement, but where is the sentence that shows your position on the issue?
    E.g., "Nevertheless, I see the advance of computer technology as an opportunity rather than a threat."

    These (new) ideas should not be presented in the conclusion. Instead, you should use them in your body paragraphs above.

    Re: correcting an essay about computer intelligence.

    I think you've missed the whole point of the question. It's not whether computers are useful or not. It's whether computers becoming more intelligent than humans is a good or bad thing. I don't know what attitude IELTS takes to answering the wrong question, but I am sure it would be useful to think about what the question is asking. "Computer science" as you state in your conclusion is not really the issue.

    I think in most cases you can use either a gerund or an infinitive after "continue"; do you have a particular sentence or context in mind?
