Re: Cartoon Contest
@mpouraryan, thanks!  Glad to hear we share (as I thought) the same admiration for thought leaders!  That's why we are all here in TT!

Thanks - have a great weekend as well!

Re: Cartoon Contest
@afwriter, that is interesting!  Maybe an example of scalable technology that deploys according to functional and service demand?  If so, maybe that is a great example of the extended capabilities AT&T is building with its platform?

@mpouraryan, the examples  I am familiar with include:  AT&T and Huawai for telecoms, Southwest Airlines, Cleveland Clinic (for healthcare).  Then if you want to delve deeper there is a great book on this entitled "Humans are Underrated" by Geoff Colvin, from Fortune Magazine.  Enjoy!

Re: Cartoon Contest
@mpouraryan: To be fair, that's 40% of all the work (1) that we have now and (2) that we have the capability to predict.

It's entirely possible that that 40% figure properly and reasonably accurately takes into account those "unknown unknowns"...but I am doubtful. I don't see this automation trend, in and of itself (some other apocalyptic and/or dystopian AI fears aside), as disastrous for the economy any more than the printing press or electricity or the assembly line were. Just like technologies, new jobs are created that we didn't even think of 20 years ago as other jobs mostly obsolesce.

Moreover, automation means disruption, and disruption begets disruption, which means new businesses, more competition, brand new business models and revenue streams, and so on.

Put another way, there are many more things that have me more worried for the future than automation in and of itself. (Although there are certain automated technologies that have me particularly concerned, but not automation as a whole.)
