The most important technology is . . .

Categories: Emerging Technology

Identifying the most important technology for the near-term (next few years) often brings about fierce debate among professionals. Most believe there is no one right answer.  Often times, it depends on your industry, current competitive position and many other factors.  However, could this have changed?

Here is an interesting perspective on that topic, “The most important emerging technology for businesses is…”

Emerging Technology Job Disruption

Categories: emerging Technologies

Just recently, the South China Morning Post published an article about tech-driven job disruption.  In that piece, they cited the results of a workshop that was very interesting.  A whopping “74 percent of the people gathered there said they did not feel prepared for the workforce changes ahead.”  They went on and reference a World Economic Forum stat projecting that they expect a loss of 980,000 jobs between now and 2022, and the creation of 1.74 million new jobs that are all due to emerging technologies. Perhaps we should all spend some time and evaluate our skill-set and look at what skills we might need to acquire for our professional work in 2022.

DRONE UPDATE

Categories: Drones, Emerging technology

Thought I would follow-up to my PMI Drone Technology webinar I did earlier this year that had about 8,000 attendees. As discussed, it was only a matter of time before this was going to happen given. Given all the dangerous incidents that have been reported regulation was only a matter of time. The U.S. Senate vote was 93 to 6 vote on the 1,200-page a piece of legislation addressing drones and air traffic control.

Sensor Skin for Robots

Categories: Robots

Scientists at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have just publicly disclosed they have created “a stretchable pressure based strain sensor” (AKA robot skin).  It is sprayed on so it is easily fitted to the shape of the robot.  This is shown on a video – link below.

It is interesting to think about the application of this robotic skin technology to the rapidly advancing field of robotics that is integrated with artificial intelligence (AI)!
