Re: Not such a great business plan then?
It's crazy to think that that many jobs will be automated. I guess we'll have to see how exactly that effects things.

Re: Not such a great business plan then?
Estimates are between 35-45% of jobs are slated to be automated--so, naturally folks will be concerned (someone can fact check this whenever their schedule permits).   As I have noted before during my comments, I am with Greg Ip of the Wall Street Journal as he noted a few months back that as we have survived spreadsheets, we will survive AI as well--the question is how--and in what way--which is why we're all here--right?  This is as I saw this, of course, on AI..as someone is slated to create an AI GOD:

Re: Not such a great business plan then?
Very true! It'll be interesting to see how the consumer comes out on this one.

Re: Not such a great business plan then?
The big "elephant" though is the evolution of AI in this mix--and how the consumer will fare in the midst of this profound change.

Truly challenging times!!!

Onward to September with all its' possiblities :)

Re: Not such a great business plan then?
Exactly! And the consumer really has to be the one in charge pulling the reigns. At the end of the day companies are trying to have a relationship with the consumer and make them happy.

As long as the customer is the focus and innovation is the order of the day, the possiblities are limitless.

Re: Not such a great business plan then?
There's nothing wrong with being optimistic. We could probably all use a bit more of that. But I also see a lot more possibility in a start-up newspaper being successful than I do an OTT. Especially in a world where the major news outlets are more and more being called into question. Also, the capital for a venture like that isn't quite the same, as there is hardly any overhead in a newspaper, especially an online on. Especially compared to an OTT. With television, lower quality is always immediately noticed. Lately I've been watching Scarecrow and Mrs. King again. An old favorite of mine. And while at the time it was pretty on par with other shows, it's also 30 years-old at this point, and that's extremely obvious when you watch it. And most people just don't care for lower quality anymore.

Re: Not such a great business plan then?
We have to remain hopeful-I know I'm being "philosophical" about it--but if we didn't, many of the innovations we take for granted will not be around.   This is why the start up I work for "the Daily Outsider' was launched--knowing full well the headwinds and the challenges we face out there!!!

Re: Not such a great business plan then?
@mpouraryan - I don't foresee anyone without a ton of capital being able ot make it in the OTT world. Or really good connections. But then, I'd imagine you'd need the capital for those kinds of connections. Either way, no OTT can survive without content people are willing to continue coming back to, and without a ton of money, I have no idea how you would even begin to find that kind of content.
