AI, Robotics and Automation vs. Human Worker

image_thumb-4 AI, Robotics and Automation vs. Human Worker

I don’t normally write stories about stuff like this, but it’s becoming strangely apparent that artificial intelligence, robotics and automation, and how it affects the human worker needs to be addressed; we need to talk about it.

I’ve been seeing a lot of stories about robotics, artificial intelligence and automation in general. The combination of those three factors are very strong indications that the human worker is not going to be able to contribute to the manufacturing world of the future.

I’ve been blogging for a long time and my favorite application to use for generating my articles is/was Windows Live Writer, but Microsoft has since sunset that product. It’s been replaced by Open Live Writer. Over the past year, since the Open Live Writer team took over the development of that application, the development team on GITHUB has been busy in the background making small improvements.

The latest version of Open Live Writer can be found on the Windows Store. Just do a search for Open Live Writer. The application will be installed and should be available for automatic update as they’re issued.

Holiday Shopping + Free Shipping = Done.

image_thumb-4 Holiday Shopping + Free Shipping = Done.

With Christmas 2016 just a few weeks away and most people wanting to avoid the annual day of shopping terrorism called Black Friday, a lot of customers are turning to cyber Monday for their Christmas shopping. It makes perfect sense. You don’t have to leave your house, your safe, you might save some money, you definitely save stress and in most cases, you get exactly what you’re looking for.

I would like to say that for my shopping habits, when I’m looking for items to purchase off the Internet, I’m looking for items that come with free shipping.

On the heels of the post-presidential election, arguably one of the most stunning upsets in American history, people have become angry with websites that spread misinformation or flat out lies. In my previous article, I mentioned that Facebook and Google are going to be making efforts to try to weed out fake news.

But the simple fact is that’s only part of the pie, and only a very small portion. Yes; Google and Facebook do carry a lot of weight when it comes to Internet traffic in public interaction, but if you want to filter all the fake news websites, you have to start at the browser level.

Fake News Sites Are Going To Be Punished

image_thumb Fake News Sites Are Going To Be Punished

At least 50% of America is unhappy with the latest US elections. Some people are extremely excited about having a Donald Trump presidency while the other half are unanimously disgusted.

The overall consensus in America is that the two choices that we had for president were not good; it was like having to choose between two piles of discarded feces. But I think, more than any other presidential election, and mainly because of the sheer number of people on the Internet with access to publication abilities, there’s been a lot of misinformation, fake news and just flat out lies.

Some people have the conception that if it’s on the Internet, it must be true. Some look at the Internet and say this website looks professional, it looks reputable, it must be true. But the simple fact is that a lot of the information you have access to on the Internet is not true. Just because someone has the ability to publish information, doesn’t necessarily mean that that information comes from a respectable source.
