Totally unrealistic to think that we have any control over this aspect of modern technology. Artificial Intelligence is part of our work now, we need to understand and include this “tool” in every part of our life – because ignorance is not creative or helpful!
Plan now – Ignorance won’t help to find a fruitful outcome….
Over the last 50+ years in particular, we have all learned of the different paths open to us because of technology. This video – while I always loved it (…. maybe, more like the ‘Grandpa HAL’ now) – in the 1960’s, it was exactly a “Space Oddity”!! It all seemed so far beyond reality. Well now it actually just life – like it or not….
Have you ever heard or said, “I”…. need / want a new phone…
- a better camera function
- access to the internet
- to get all my emails from 3 different addresses
- all my banking details – and to pay accounts
- to apply for that job
- send messages, make phone calls
- send bulk invitations
- know who tried to call or contact me.. (maybe block some of them)
- to meet new friends
- access to all the social networks
- to order my groceries ……..
- to get quotes for my new car, and schedule a service for my old one
- get a travel directions to your house
- to be able to sign documents
- book a holiday
- know the time in London and Edmonton for FaceTime contacts
- listen to my music
- watch TV
- Play games …..
I could go on and on, no surprises there – all these possibilities on a hand help phone and a watch too now….
I was privileged in my work experiences to use one of the very early “mobile Phones” available commercially in Australia in the early 1990’s. It was bulky, quite heavy and really only worked in major cities! Over time with friends across the world and a career where I needed to be contactable despite travel obligations – my need to stay updated and on top of the available market options has always been a priority. I must then admit, that now I need my laptop more for ease of eye strain than practical storage and space etc.
Some Wikipedia details…
- From 1983 to 1998, Motorola was market leader in mobile phones. Nokia was the market leader in mobile phones from 1998 to 2012. In Q1 2012, Samsung surpassed Nokia, selling 93.5 million units as against Nokia’s 82.7 million units. Samsung has retained its top position since then. In 2017, the top five manufacturers worldwide were Samsung (20.9%), Apple (14.0%), Huawei (9.8%), Oppo (5.7%), and Vivo (6.5%). During Q2 2018, Huawei overtook Apple as the world’s second-largest phone manufacturer.
Electronic waste regulation
Studies have shown that around 40–50% of the environmental impact of mobile phones occurs during the manufacture of their printed wiring boards and integrated circuits.The average user replaces their mobile phone every 11 to 18 months, and the discarded phones then contribute to electronic waste. Mobile phone manufacturers within Europe are subject to the WEEE directive, and Australia has introduced a mobile phone recycling scheme.
- Apple Inc. had an advanced robotic disassembler and sorter, called Liam specifically for recycling outdated or broken iPhones.
Public Exposure of AI as Support Tools
Several years ago… Siri became available to help me -in all my searches… ask the question and there she was – my AI agent… ! For another of my family – Samsung loyal…. it was Bixby…
So I have Cortana on my laptop and now I have received marketing promotions and information for Olly – the first Home Robot “with personality”… ?
In many of our movies and tv programs now, casts use their “internet mates” actively and its amusing too – But it is real too, just have a look at what Olly can do for you at home…
Be involved in the new internet marketing possibilities
Experience and the pace of current development within everyday life can be considered a tool, a challenge or an unreal, unnecessary inconvenience.(?)
Do you wonder what our daily exposure through our phones, ipads, laptops and home computers might actually mean (?) Realistically its how our future access to all knowledge bases is being traced (?) or provided (?)
Its like the idea of “glass half full v’s glass half empty”
The development of our reliance on technology is a normal process at this stage. The positive reaction is to look for the great options that are available to all of us in an environment where we have internet world-wide access and to move forward with our new providers.
As a person of the general public – its more like being part of this creation than to choose to ignore our future opportunities.
‘All In’ or ‘Ignore the future path’ – choosing to be part of this future; to learn all of our possible involvement opportunities and the benefits would be a constructive….
Ignoring our future options will be a disappointment, in many ways… (loss of employment opportunities, online marketing-instead of physical retailers, snail-mail gone, banking and investment requirements, education, medical advice, customer service, … )
Focus On The Most Constructive or Socially Based Concept
Every plan or idea for any aspect of life in this era ‘seems’ to be available on the net….. Your choice is to be part of this or ignore the our futures…..
If I looked for information to support my suggestion –
‘I’ll ask Cortana…..” I’d consider for a moment; suggestive words to look for on my net search…. I’d search the ‘net’ for relevant information, then share with you…. “my ideas”
Creating a website in a niche that means something… (or everything to us individually ! ) – where we offer information and support for different ideas, and options, creates our own future within this world of Artificial Intelligence.
At this time in our lives, its like working toward our net based income. I believe that in 10-20 years time, we will have been part of the future or lost in a progress we chose to ignore.
Realistically – 20 years ago I was so taken by the benefit of my (large and unreliable) mobile phone – now I find life a nuisance if we don’t have internet access.
My training and explanation of the ‘net’ via Wealthy Affiliate has helped me to understand so much more about the back screens and the correct methods to create websites and income.
I can now confidently ask you to join me and the wonderful training, net-bootcamps, and support within our educated and helpful crew
Please come and trial our training (for free!), our team and our support – its really a great environment to be part of.
I’d really appreciate your comment or questions – I’ll be back to you as soon as I can.
