Re: china robotic machines
Autonomous cars have so far only killed one person.. but it's not clear how many the same technology has saved? Elon Musk argues that Tesla's imperfect Autopilot system has saved many lives (though the exact number is not known).

Re: china robotic machines
@mhhflve:

Thanks for sharing the story. So unfortunate to know that technology costed a life.I can not agree more that we hav eto apply our own samrtness in terms of to what extent we can blkindly trust technology. But the end of it has to be our own educated decision making on when and how to make that call. If not , no matter however smart we technologists are we are just letting that technology ruin us. Scary !

Re: china robotic machines
Good points!

I agree, I think that the human factor in all of this still has to remain intact. No matter how much technology is thrown around.

Human Machine Intelligence
I took an AI class in college and it was very interesting. Human Machine Intelligence is only as good as the technology and person programming it.

Telco companies in the U.S have a long way to go in terms of innovation. I think telco should focus on just getting implementing technology, standards and services that aligned with current technology, then they can focus on more advanced technologies like IoT, SDN, NFV, and Human Machine intelligence.

Interpreting historical data to determine consumers current and future needs is great which is similar to how IoT and Big Data are being used. Providing recommendations for consumers is also great. As consumers evolve the technology will evolve as well.

The question is: what's different now? Automation has so far been pretty "dumb" -- only able to perform repetitive tasks without much variation. It looks like automation will soon be able to do some low-level creative tasks that are not exactly repetitive, and that's a big difference.

Smart and "dumb" are going to be blurred with technology. Unfortunately, if we put too much trust in some "smart" things, there can be very serious consequences. Joshua Brown is the first fatality caused by a semi-autonomous Tesla vehicle. He wasn't paying attention while his car was driving, and it didn't try to stop at all when it collided with the trailer of a semi-truck. Brown was technically savvy to know the shortcomings of Tesla's Autopilot mode, but apparently, he trusted the software too much and paid with his life.

I'm sure there will be plenty of analogous situations with semi-autonomous network monitoring that fails to identify obvious threats....

Re: Augmented human intelligence..
Would have to agree with that. Increased mechanization has always threatened jobs, and I think we will see more of it as AI, robotics and IoT-driven automation develop. It's a long term macroeconomic concern I think, as the global population surges mostly in low income/low education regions.

I don't think a Terminator-style AI revolution is ever going to happen... but when autonomous cars replace 90% of truck drivers, and a large number of minimum wage jobs are automated.. the economy might have some serious problems to deal with. 

When machines took over human telephone switch operators, there were plenty of other kinds of jobs for people to do. I'm not so sure what happens when robots can learn general manual labor tasks... Will there be employment opportunities for people who can't maintain robot hardware/software? :P
