Re: Disruption = "Transformation"
...we can't be fearful..that's for sure...but such does give me a profound sense of optimism:

 

Japanese Firm to Open World's First Robot-Run Farm


robot farm

What it is: In an effort to dramatically boost its production, Japanese vegetable producer Spread has announced plans to roll out a full array of industrial robots by mid-year 2017. The robots can perform every task except seed planting: they will sterilize water, adjust light levels, and monitor CO2 levels, temperature and humidity. Spread will deploy these robots in a facility akin to a vertical farm, and expects to increase production from 21,000 to 50,000 heads of lettuce right away. In five years, Spread expects its robot

Re: Disruption = "Transformation"
@mpouraryan, very true - the change begins with us.  I like those comments.  That is the value of TT and education, digital communities of agreements, and demonstrations (ie leading competitors) of better ways in the future.

I can't and you can't alone, nor can these companies, but WE can!  That is the magic of the US  System - we need to get it back in full speed!

You get my vote.

Re: Disruption = "Transformation"
Let's remember we have to do more than hope--we have to do our part--I always take comfort in how Edion and Graham Bell saw "beyond the now"--that's our challenge now.

Re: Disruption = "Transformation"
@mpouraryan, you are right.  This is where true leadership is involved to address the real issues and build solutions that make more winners, not win-lose.  I believe that is our future.

The key is to make sure that everyone--and I mean everyone--is part of the solution.

In the meantime, a lot of Ordinary Faces are being left behind--as exemplified by the predicament in the Rust Belt States in the United States.    This is where the challenge lies--and there are no easy answers.

Re: Disruption = "Transformation"
@mpouraryan, great thoughts and I am with you.  I think that is what we will and must learn new - is how to do all-of-the-above.

Re: Disruption = "Transformation"
@mpouraryan, those are possibilities if we neglect the balance that will make the AI/HI sustainable.  If we choose to lose control and don't augment human intelligence with technology, anything is possible, with less than desirable affects.

But we can't let fear restrain us from digital disruption and building a better future.  I think that is what these companies are doing well.

Re: Disruption = "Transformation"
Let's continue to remain optimistic as the report reflects that what is at hand is indeed sustainable--but there needs to be room for innovation and choice.  I wonder if that can be possible.

The question is can we as we see Watson evolving, Google at the forefront, Elon Musk telling us that Governments have to think about Universal Basic Income--what then?
